You may have a fax in memory that requires a larger size. Try putting legal in the tray and see if it prints out anything. Also, look in the set up menu to see if there is an "auto reduction" mode. That will make any over sized incoming faxes automatically print out on the size paper you have in the tray.

Lexmark 734dn error is "load more paper and continue"

Check if the correct paper type and size is set in the printer settings. Also check if the paper guides are set to the correct size in the paper tray. Sometimes, the paper sensors will not detect the correct paper if the guides are set to the incorrect size.

I have a Laser Class 710 and the error light keeps blinking. There is a message that says "incorrect paper size received in memory". How do I get rid of this?

Someone has probably sent you a fax on 8 1/2 x 14 inch (legal size) paper. Pull down the manual hand feed tray which is located above the regular paper cassettes and place some legal size paper in it. Hopefully the fax will be outputted and the message will go away. Good luck.

"Paper Size Error: The paper size selected in the

Problem may be the paper tray. You don't say what kind of printer you have and my psychic abilities are nil.
The paper tray has sensors that tell the printer what size paper is in the tray. Make sure that the tray guides are set correctly.
By the way all paper trays are "in" trays.
Print out a config sheet to see what size paper the printer is set up for for each tray.

My printer will not print card paper for xmas

Hi - I too am having an issue with my R1800 loading XMAS CARD STOCK paper.....I tried cleaning the rollers as per the EPSON web site. Although, I used alcohol in stead of water. I made sure I got the little roller way down under the paper and it seems better...although not 100%. Hope this helps!

'Printer out of paper' message

on note pad or word you should select the paper size first because it might set to a different size. when you click file click print click properties or printing preference and choose what size of paper you have in your tray and then click ok. print ok.
check the printer paper tray setting to make sure the paper tray side guide is right agains the paper. I hope this will solve your problem.

Load A4

A4 is for european size, if you are printing on a letter size this is a mismatched.
you need to change your files printer properties to A4 or letter size, or change your printer paper size.
better yet cancel this document and send it again , this time by checking the printer properties was set to your desired paper size

Can not set custom paper size in HP C7180

I had to seek Help several times, and then work through the steps a few times before I learned the overly complex HP method for setting custom sizes (I never thought I would have anything good to say about Dell printers, but it was MUCH easier to set custom sizes on my old Dell than on this HP C7180).
Anyway, it sounds as though you are nearly there. After you set the size and save the name, you must click OK, then click OK in the Document Properties window. Then close any open windows, like "Document Properties" or "Print Pictures", and start over from "Pictures" or whatever photo browser you are using. Chose an image and click "Print". Under Printer, chose "C7100 series", not "...series fax". Under Paper size chose "More". Your new custom size should now be the last size listed (although, it has shown up as the first size a couple of times, ...go figure). BTW, I am using Windows Vista.
Hope this helps.
