The tray that the copier is attempting to pull paper from is empty. You may have a tray with 8.5 X 11 paper, if you have more than 1 tray, but it is looking at an empty tray.

Error load paper and beep when i print

More info would be helpful. Like exactly what is the control panel message. However, from your description it sounds like the machine is looking for a paper size or type not loaded or wants paper loaded in the manual feed tray. Check your driver and see which paper tray is selected and what type paper as well as checking the printer to see if the tray is set to plain paper or some other type.

Getting message to load tray 1 A4. load with

This problem is commonly found across printers, and is not specific to your printer model.

This problem occurs if:
  • You select the Hold mismatched documents option on the Advanced tab of the Properties windows of the printer.
  • The printer driver user interface (UI) plug-in uses the full UI replacement functionality. This means that printer driver replaces the default Windows printer dialog interface, so Windows fails to find certain registry keys to determine the paper type.
Microsoft has a hotfix for this issue for Vista and Windows Server 2008:

If you are seeing this issue on XP, you can do the following:
1. Go to Printers and Faxes from the Start Menu (or type the following command in the Start->Run window: control printers).
2. Right click on the affected printer's icon, and click on Properties.
3. Click on the Advanced tab.
4. Uncheck the option Hold mismatched documents.
5. Some printers have the default paper type as Letter, so please change the printer properties to use A4 as the default
5. Click OK to save the settings change.
6. Wait for 15 seconds, and try to restart your printer job if needed. Usually, Windows will automatically restart the job, once the paper mismatch setting is resolved.
7. Ensure that you make the above printer property settings change on every computer where your printer is installed.

Happy printing!

This printer have a sensor to remind the user when using a wrong paper size.

If you still using a paper that not the same with your software settings, it's still reminds you.

I solve this promblem by after print my works I just press "Cancel Jobs" button to clear a data.

Good luck.

Printer is loaded with paper but get message

Although you really haven't given me enough information, I will posit and response for you.

A "Load Paper Error can be caused by the application telling you to change the "TYPE or SIZE" of paper that is in your paper tray.

For example, The application thinks you want the page printed on "Letterhead" paper, but it know that you have plain bond paper installed.

So you are sent a change paper type message.

The fix is to hit go and skip around that error.

The actual fix is to make sure that your printer driver, application and the printer are all set to the same size paper and type paper.

Dell 3000cn keep getting load mpf when i try to print but there is paper in the tray. how do I get it to recognize the paper. I've changed nothing on the computer but this just started to happen! please...

I have a Dell 3010n myself, and a few times I did run into that "Load MPF" issue.
1.) Before printing a document, please check and see the properties. i.e. Kind/type of paper, which tray, or if printing envelopes or any other document than a regular 8 x11 paper. Putting all the tray and paper type selection on "Auto" can be very helpful.
2.) On the printer itself, there is a menu button where you can configure the type of paper, i.e. regular 20 llb. copy/print paper, glossy photopaper, thicker paper - after you place a fresh load on the paper tray and slide it in, usually it will ask you which type of paper you just loaded. Make sure it is the same settings as the document that you are trying to print: i.e. if document settings on computer was set to print on photopaper and you have regular paper on the tray, the printer will do a "Load MPF".
The paper sensor on it is amazingly (for a Dell, that is) sensitive and it can differentiate across a lot of paper types/thickness. If you have several computers and user across a network, and there are several paper-type settings done on the printer itself, this "Load MPF" issue will present itself more often.
In my case, it's simply because the person who recently changed the paper-type to glossy cover paper from some user who previously printed to a transparency forgot to revert MPF/Tray 1 to regular copy/print paper. Most cases, the printer setting on the PC has been left to print on to a transparency by default, so even if I stack the tray with copy paper to the hilt, it still will do "Load MPF".

Paper won't pick up from the paper tray. I keep getting a load error message or paper tray message no matter how I load the paper. I get the codes "A4" and "024-964" Thanks

Check your printer for paper size and type settings. Ensure they are set to letter and plain1. Also check the program you are printing from (Word, wordperfect, etc) and ensure the paper size is correct there as well.

'Load plain paper' message

Make sure that you have set the same paper type on both the printer driver and on the printer itself, using the on-printer menu. When I get this message, I usually had forgotten to change the paper type on the printer.
