Open paper tray and look at the paper stopper ( the one on the end that you can adjust for the paper lenght)
is it set for letter?
now take a look on the SIDE of the tray there are three prongs, when you adjust the paper lenght, are they moving as you adjust the paper? for letter size the bottom two should be out and the top one should be in.

Unable to print 34 (what is it and how to correct)

This means there may be a paper or object like a paper clip inside the printer. Have you just had a paper jam?
Open the unit and inspect for paper or an object.
Follow the directions in the manual regarding saving any unprinted faxes, then disconnect power for ten seconds. Plug the unit back in. It should be working.

Everytime i print something in a label sized setting it always cuts into short

Before printing try using print preview first and adjust yur settings from there. Or go into control panel select printers and reset to default settings, restart your computer and try again. Good luck.

T632 printer error : 34 short paper. What does that mean? Don't see 34 as a valid error code.

This error message means that the printer has determined that the length of the paper in the source specified on the second line of the display is too short to print the formatted data. For auto-size sensing trays, this error occurs if the guides are not in the correct position.

Please try to do the following

? Press Go to clear the message and continue printing. The printer does not automatically reprint the page that prompted the message.

? Make sure the Paper Size setting in the Paper Menu is correct for the size paper you are using. If MP Feeder Size is set to Universal, make sure your paper is large enough for the formatted data.

? Press Menu to open the Job Menu and cancel the current job. Please see also the media guidelines on the user manual p.29

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Printing blank pages on Lexmark C510 printer. Throws a 34 Short Paper error first, prints out a blank page. I have replaced the black toner, but problem continues. Demo page printed colors successfully but...

For 34 Short Paper error, reseat the tray guides and make sure it is set properly. Also, set the correct settings in the computer. For blank pages, always double-check the paper settings and again the settings in the computer. For not printing black, print the Print Quality page and see what color is not printed or not showing. If Print Quality shows black, try printing any document from any application in the computer. Check if you still have the problem. If problem is not resolved, leave a comment so I can get back to this.

Error message reads "34 short paper". What does this code mean and what can I do to correct it? Thanks

This error means that the type of paper that is configured in the printer is different from the one you have chosen in your computer to send for printing. Make sure that the paper size is the same in both places the computer program you are using and the printer. For example if I have a Letter size word document that I want to print but the printer has A4 configured then I will get the 34 short paper error but If I change the paper in the printer and the setting to letter size then everything should print fine.

34 short paper

The printer does not auto detect your paper size and so when your Legal size document was printed on Letter size paper, you get a 34 Short Paper message.

Print Unable 34

There might be some paper left in the machine. Check the very edges espacially the left side (seeing from the front).

Another reason could be that the encoder strip isn t in right position or is stained from ink.

Anyway try the first solution first.

If you stll have trouble try to open the printer:
and have a close look to the encoder strip + disc (and look out for some paper in the edges... ;-))

34 incorrect media

34 Incorrect Media message appears if the printer has detected a mismatch between the type of media requested by the user and the type of media actually loaded in the paper tray.

To attempt a resolution for this issue, please do the following:
  1. Press the green GO button on the printer operator panel. Printing will resume, but the printer must go through a POR (Power On Reset) in order to clear the message.
    NOTE: The printer does not automatically reprint the page that generated the error message.
  2. Verify that the media you are using is supported by your printer in terms of size, weight, and input source.
  3. Using the printer operator panel, verify that the type of media loaded in the paper tray matches the Paper Type setting in the Paper Menu. Detailed instructions for navigating through the printer menus and changing the media type setting are provided in the C510 User's Guide.
    • If the media type setting is incorrect and cannot be changed, there may be an issue with the media type sensor. Proceed to step 5.
  4. Using the printer's operator panel, verify that the paper loaded in the paper tray is the size listed under Paper Size in the Paper Menu. Detailed instructions for navigating through the printer menus and changing the paper size setting are provided in the C510 User's Guide.
    • If the paper size changes to an incorrect setting or cannot be changed, it is likely that the paper size guides in either the 250-sheet or the 530-sheet paper tray are not set correctly. Remove the media from the tray and verify the location of the media guides.
  5. Power the printer off and then back on again.
  6. Resend the print job to the printer.
  7. If the error persists, you will need to contact Lexmark Technical Support for assistance. Please obtain the printer serial number before contacting Lexmark. If possible, call from near the printer as this will allow for the most accurate possible diagnosis.
Hope this will help you please let me know if it worked and don't forget to vote..
