Question about Lexmark E220 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark E220 this printer has worked fine for several years. Suddenly it keep telling me "Load paper" while the paper tray is full. It will only print one page at a time which is a real nuisance when you try to run off a lengthy document. I am not a 'techy" - all I've done is turn it off and on. Any advice?

It is telling you that on your pc, correct? there is no screen on the printer itself. Is the paper light on the printer lit?  if you take out all the papers does the light come on? if yes the sensor is working and your problem is coming from your pc settings.

Lexmark E232, keeps telling me paper tray is empty even though it has paper in the tray, then it just keeps clicking instead of picking up the paper and feeding into the printer? Please help

Go the Lexmark website and search on support for their telephone number. I've always had a experience with their support team even if the printer is out of warranty.

What is the problem when the display keeps on showing Tray 1 load ltr on Lexmark c500

Load ltr means to load letter size paper. If its saying try 1 load ltr - its saying that you are out of letter size paper in tray number one of your printer.

The paper crinkles and jams. I have opened the from escape door and the paper feed through OK but does make a tick on the leading edge of the paper 2 1/4 Cm from the right edge. It looks a though there is...

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Our lexmark Optra T610 laser printer keeps telling me to "change tray one to plain paper"

verify paper tray is set for correct paper. print the configuration menu and check the paper size for tray 1. If it does not have right size, examine the tray bottom to see if slider is in place

Lexmark T632 says "Load MP Feeder Letter

Hi Pqpoppa,
Check the paper size setting in the printer. Set it to the paper size you normally use such as A4 and the default tray. Check the default paper size in the printer driver in your computer and the default tray. Finally, check the paper size of the document you are printing. If all these match, it should not try to be smart and ask you to feed paper.

Try loading paper in both trays. Tray '2' is supposed to be the bottom tray. It is a much larger tray than the top tray which sits underneath the duplexer.

IBM 4039 drivers also work for this model.
