    How you selected transparency in the print driver as well? if not this could be overriding the printer setting.

Hi!!! in that kind of problem maybe the paper sensor was defective and it can't detect the kind of paper you loaded to your printer.

Lexmark t614 manual feed how it works


  1. Push the lower release latch. The multipurpose feeder door drops open.
  2. Pull out the metal bar in the recessed area on the multipurpose feeder, far enough to accommodate the paper you will be using.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the far right.
  4. Prepare the print material for loading:


      • Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
      • Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.
      • Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent jams.
      • Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the transparencies.

  5. Use the stack height limiter as a guide for stack height when loading print materials.
  6. Load one type of print material in the multipurpose feeder. Do not mix types.
  7. Slide the paper width guide over until it fits snugly against the side of the print material.

The printer trays accommodate most sizes and types of paper, transparencies, or other
specialty media. Follow these guidelines when loading paper and media in the trays:
- Envelopes, labels, and glossy paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) only.
- Transparencies and custom size paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) and Tray 2.
- Fan paper, transparencies, and labels prior to loading them in the tray.
- Use only paper envelopes. All envelopes should be printed single-sided only. Some
wrinkling and embossing may occur when printing envelopes.
- Do not overload the paper trays.
- Adjust the paper guides to fit the paper size.
- If excessive jams occur, use paper or other media from a new package.

The following is my exact problem...can it be repaired? Hard to tell if piece is broken. "My faxes are not printing. The error message says there is a paper mismatch and tells me to remove the transparency...


Somewhere, your printer has a sensor (probably a light and a mirror and a detector), to try to distinguish between transparency media and opaque media (such as a sheet of paper).

So, that sensor either has a piece of transparency media stuck inside it, or it is otherwise misdiagnosing what media is between the light-emitter and the light-detector, and thus is claiming that there is transparency media loaded into the paper-tray.

It sounds like you need to take the printer to a qualified technician.

Use this item to configures the fuser mode associated
with each media type.
Change the fuser mode only if you are experiencing
problems printing on certain types of media. After you
select a type of paper, you can select a fuser mode
that is available for that type. The available selections
might include some or all of the following modes:
NORMAL: Used for most types of paper.
HIGH 1: Used for rough paper.
LOW: Used for transparencies.
HIGH 2: Used for paper that has a special or rough
finish.
The default fuser mode is NORMAL for all print media
types except transparencies (LOW), and rough paper
(HIGH 1).
CAUTION
Do not change the fuser mode for transparencies.
Failure to use the LOW setting while printing
transparencies can result in permanent damage to
the printer and fuser. Always select Transparencies
as the Type in the printer driver and set the tray type
at the printer control panel to TRANSPARENCY.
When selected, RESTORE MODES resets the fuser mode
for each media type back to its default setting.
Hope this helps

Paper settings


When you change the settings do you hot then 'OK' button to see that the astix is next to it ? When changing settings make sure that you see that astrix next to your changes if not you will return to it's original setting. I alreaded assumed you knew how to access the menu's Make sure you set these setting by"OK" some printers like "Xerox" will make you hit the "Select" key

Hi, I would like to print on Transparency paper, but it will not allow me, what am I doing incorrect please . does it go into the photo tray or paper Tray ? Regards Ellen


Hi

First of all, are you working with a laser printer or inkjet? if it is laser make sure that you have the correct transparency, IT MUST BE HEAT RESISTANT! if it is not,u'll end up buying a new fuser unit. then...

1. Put the transparency in your MP tray
2. When selecting "print" click on properties and select your MP tray as your source,
3. Select Transparency for you media type.

after doing this you will be able to print your transparencies.

I hope it helps
Kind regards

Color transparencies are dark & poor color


Hello,

Nice printer.. Hope this will give hints. Considering transparency papers, please try another batch of or a piece of transparency paper. Try to adjust also the graphics preferences (dark to light) aside from transparency paper selection. Have a nice day.

Best regards,
