The switch inside that makesxeither an electrical connection orca mechanical one tells the printer that the paper tray is home loaded and awaiting commands is not being activated by the tray
The switch has become faulty overtime and needs,a replacement
The bit on the tray that pushes the tray loaded switch has broken off the tray is missing the switch or a wiring fault has developed
And the switch has no power so it still can't see the tray even if it is loaded thus error paper tray missing continuously is being displayed
Hi. I don't know if your printer is new or old or if this was the first time you replaced the cartridge or this has occurred after several changes. Most if not all printers will have this occur after replacing a cartridge if the ink had been depleted for some time and allowed to dry up in the jets. Sometimes all it takes is a day for this to happen. I have found that I must go through several cleaning cycles to clear the clogged jet(s). So, try doing a few cleaning cycles and see if that solves the problem. Another cause for a printer not printing after replacing a cartridge is surprisingly a FAULTY or remanufactured cartridge. There should be a program on your computer that displays the cartridge condition, cleaning procedure and ink levels. Give that a look over.
Windows draw 6 is a very old program that has changed hand many time the last owners were Coral and they have not moved with it. You could try the following if you do not have the software disk for the printer[Why is that?] Go start/printers and faxes/ click on it ans click on 'Add printer' The system will look for plug and plany and the ask- insert CD or select from list. Choose select from list then find the make [Lexmark] then Model 3200 click on it and windows will load driver from its own resources.
Anoth problem is if you are System is XP or Vista and the programs is most likey a DOS based Win 95/8 then it wont run. Try to get round this by going to Start/Programs/Accessories/SystemTools/Compatability Wizard and try restting the machine to 98.
