First go to control panel and select printers and faxes.... in there right clik ur printer and choose printer preferences..... choose the printing shortcuts.... in the left side u ll have a list of available types of print... select ur required type... on the right u have paper source .... select automatic.... and then next to the printing shortcuts tab... go to features tab... there in the resizing options ..... choose custom and put in the size of the paper u want to print in.....

Make sure that the paper exit tray is extended out. This will give your print job a place to rest when finished.
Feed the paper manually through the paper support. This should be done at the speed the printer allows. Do not try to rush the paper through.
Watch the paper come out through the paper exit tray. Make sure it is not crooked or creased.

thank you
have a nice day

It could be several issues - although commonly when a printer moves from it's default tray it's due to a paper size conflict. The form you are trying to print may be a legal size form (8.5x14) or a a non US standard such as A3. Regardless, if the size is different than what's loaded in your main paper tray it will move to the secondary tray or to the MPF (Manual Paper Feed) tray looking for the appropriate size.

If you don't have the appropriate paper, you should be able to enter your printer properties and adjust the settings to scale the document to fit to page.

URGENT .. really need help sir.. my Printer Canon MX328, don;t want to feeding the paper. i don't know why . and sometime if the printer can feeding, 80% gonna be jammed. please help !


From your description,it seems that other material present inside your printer and blocking the paper path. Sometimes,broken paper feeder indicates the same way. I recommend you to bring your printer to the nearest service center unless you are quit familiar with assembly and reassembly of this printer.

Printer is saying manual feed insert paper. Will not print


To load paper or other media in the Manual Feed Slot (directly above the Paper Tray)

You can load envelopes and special print media one at a time into this slot. Use the manual feed slot to print or copy on labels, envelopes or thicker paper.

1. Slide the paper guides to fit the paper size.
2. Using both hands put one sheet of paper in the manual feed slot until you feel the front edge of the paper touch the paper feed roller. Let go of the paper when you feel the machine feed the paper in a short distance.

Note: When you put paper in the manual feed slot, please remember the following:
■ The side to be printed on must be face up.
■ Put the leading edge (top of the paper) in first and push it gently into the slot.
■ Make sure that the paper is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
■ Do not put more than one sheet or envelope in the manual feed slot at a time or you may cause the machine to jam.
■ You can remove smaller sizes of printed paper from the output paper tray more easily if you lift the scanner cover using both hands as shown in the illustration.

You can still use the machine when the scanner cover is raised. You can return the scanner cover to its home position by pushing it down with both hands.



If you would like to disable Manual Feed Mode, check that the manual feed mode is not selected in the printer driver.

Brother 2040 printer blinking paper light - I open all of the drawers, took out and put the cartridge back in, played with the paper wheels and it won't stop blinking!





Hello ,

This is due to your computer software selecting the manual feed instead of tray one usually because the software program decides that the paper size is not the standard letter size, such as envelopes, and has to go through the manual feed.

If you are having trouble finding the manual feed, it is found just above the paper tray, usually on the front panel of the printer.

If you are trying to print a letter sized document yet the printer still asks for the paper to be inserted into the manual feed, then one of the settings in the software you are using needs to be changed.

For most windows based applications, you can find a “page setup” menu; in this menu, there is a section that specifies the tray being used to print from.
Make sure the setting in page setup is set to “tray 1” and not “manual”

Thank you,

Hp l7590b no paper load


hi friend,
Step 1Turn on your printer. Make sure it is plugged into an electrical outlet and installed properly.
  • Step 2Wait for your printer to stop. Do not load paper while it is printing or running any kind of maintenance operation.
  • Step 3Prepare your paper. Make sure your paper is right side up (glossy, whiter or label side should be facing up). Make sure all the pages are lined up together, like a deck of cards.
  • Step 4Locate your paper tray. Some printers have a manual tray and an automatic feed tray. Refer to your printer’s documentation to find the automatic feed paper tray.
  • Step 5Place your paper in the tray. For 8.5 by 11 inch (standard) paper make sure the 8.5 inch side will be fed into the printer.
  • Step 6Set the paper guide. This is the movable piece on the side of your paper tray. One side should move and the other should not. Move your paper so it touches the side that does not move, and slide the paper guide so it touches the other side. Some paper guides have markings so you can set it to the exact measurements if you know the size of your paper.
  • Step 7Set the paper thickness lever. Refer to your manual to determine which setting this lever should be at. Generally, standard paper does not need a different setting and special media like glossy photo paper or envelopes should use a thicker setting. You can usually access this lever the same way you access your ink cartridges.
  • Step 8Let your printer know what it is printing. If you are using a special media, then set the options before you print. Click “Properties” on the print dialog before you print something. From there, change your media type to whatever kind of paper you loaded.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Fan your paper back and forth before lining it up to load into your printer. This prevents static build up which is the leading cause of paper jams.
    • If your printer doesn’t feed the paper correctly at first, try making slight adjustments as it tries to feed to find the right spot.
    • Refer to your manual for in-depth paper loading instructions.
    • Many printers have a resume/cancel button. This is to be used when you need to load paper mid-print job.
    • Do not overload your printer.
    • Avoid non-standard media types such as loose leaf paper with holes or folded or wrinkled paper or anything with affixed stamps or stickers. These can jam your printer.
    hope this helps u

    Print wedding announcements and the print is not straight


    Card stock on an HP can be a nuisance, due to the paper feed path. The stock has to curl around the platen.
    Some things to check: Make sure you are telling the print driver you are using card stock. It should be in the printing preferences as paper type. The printer will respond differently, knowing it has the heavier paper. Also make sure that your paper guides are adjusted to fit the smaller stock. Just putting in 5.5 x 8.5 paper into an 8.5 x 11 tray may cause it to skew.
    I am assuming that you are already telling it to print high quality, as it is for a wedding announcement, but make sure that you are. Slowing down the paper feed speed by putting it into high quality mode can help.
    Your printer is an older model, so it could be that the rollers are wearing down, and it just can't feed the last bit as well. You could try to print it in "landscape" mode. Turn the paper 90 degrees in the paper tray, so that the 8.5" is the feed side. This will allow the printer to have a better grip on the paper as it goes through. A word of caution with this method, though. HP's have a 1/2 inch margin at the bottom of the paper where it can't print. Turning the paper 90 degrees will force you to have a side margin of 1/2 inch. Currently, your bottom margin has to be 1/2 inch. I don't know what your layout looks like, so I don't know if you can turn the paper.
    If you are the one getting married, the congratulations, good luck, and mazel tov! (Have to cover all the basis).
