Question about Minolta PageWorks 20 Laser Printer

Won't print ledger size

I can't print to the ledger size paper.  When sent to the laser, it pops up with "load ledger" and flashes the yellow error light.  The ledger paper is of course loaded but the machine is not recognizing it.  I went as far as buying a second pageworks 20 on ebay, but it has the same problem. 

I had my first machine for years and years and never had a problem till recently.  Printing to this size is the reason I purchased these printers so I need to get this working.

I've done my best to clean everywhere I could and have just run out of ideas.  Help!

SOURCE: won't print or pick up a sheet of paper

toner cartridges of the 2400 laser comes with a counter chip. if it reaches its limit or the number of pages it should print. the toner cartridges are unusable anymore. try buying new cartridges or if you could find a supplier of the counter chip it would do just fine.

My Xerox Phaser 6128MFP printer flashes a red light with a "Load paper in Tray" message, when the specific paper size and type are already same in the tray.

If the paper size is correct in the printer and the printer and it's possible to print off a test print in both the printer control screen or directly from the print driver utilities if that works then the only thing I can suggest is the item you want to print is defaulted to a different size. i.e. Check that the word processor your using is set to the size you have in the printer. Imperial size pages will look very similar on screen as does the A4. Printers don't automatically fix paper print sizes you just have to check and recheck for differences. Removing the tray only reafirms to the printer that the size might be incorrect and your going to fit the correct size.
As for the red light all printers behave differently in certain error conditions. Have you also tried to print out something you printed at a time the printer was working correctly. In other words try printing out a different file. Maybe, trying to print off a test print of one line of the alphabet, and then go from there.
Good luck,

When I go to print I get message load mpf 024-969

This error typically means that the Size of paper defined in the print job being sent from the application does not match the size of the paper the printer has set for the MPF. (in this printer, MPF = Manual Feed)
For example: If you send a Letter size job to the printer from, lets say MS-Word, but the printer currently has Legal size paper assigned in the MPF, this error will result.

Whenever a print job is sent to my dell 3100cn laser printer, ?Load tray 1? appears in the small window of the printer. I loaded the tray several times but it doesn?t work. Please guide me through the...

You sent a paper size different of the requested by the printer. Just load the requested size or delete the spool.
Some PDF downloaded from internet has A4 or 8,5x11", maybe is requesting one of this sizes.

If you can not delete this message, delete the spool using the printer manual in the control panel of the printer.

Error messages and printing problems

Paper mismatch errors occur because the printer scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the printer, the printer reports a 'Paper size error'.
Try to adjust the printer and envolopee settings..

Paper light flashing popping noise

The problem sounds like the rear paper guide of the paper tray is too tight aginst the paper. Back the guide off about 1/16 of an inch and see if that helps. You may also want to check and make sure the tray is set for the correct paper size of the paper you are using. Good luck!

I had the same cr@p of the problem yesterday. The problem was not in the paper. You have to do 2 simple things, from which one will solve the problem.
first, download the latest drivers and install them.
And the more important thing, the problem occurred due to incorrect paper format. Solution is very simple. Open MS word or something similar, file->print.. and before you print open Properties menu. There for the Output Size will be selected "Match Page Size". you don't want that (i don't know why it doesn't work), but the solution is manually select A4, or whatever your page size is.

Keep getting "11 load letter in tray 1" message

Are the print jobs being sent to printer all the same page size?

Are they all print jobs sent letter page size and your printers cassettes are set for A4 or something?

Your printer is asking for letter size paper, because any paper it has is not set to letter  and document that it is trying to print has been sent as that size.

Check what options you have on print driver on pc as far as Tray defaults, paper type and size settings

Check printer settings via its keypad as to tray defaults, paper size set for each tray and paper type, some printers have paper size switchs on their trays too.
