Question about Dell 5110cn Laser Printer

2 Answers

PAPER SOURCE Question: I default to AUTOMATICALLY SELECT, which on a previous printed I had meant that the printer would use the manual feed if it could sense paper was inserted, or to PAPER TRAY 1 if the manual tray was empty. Can you tell me if there is a way to set the 5110cn to that logic?

Greetings,

First of all, let me give you the link to the manual:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/5100cn/en/OM/om_en.pdf

You will notice that it has clear instructions on loading the multipurpose feeder (manual feed) but no explanation on how to use the manual feed first then the paper tray 1.

Click on this link and look down about halfway on the left. Click on the link for the USER GUIDE:
http://www.generalmanual.com/Printers/Dell-5110cn-Color-Laser-Printer.htm

If you scroll down to the section "Loading Print Media" you will notice some instruction about linking trays. This is what you will want to do. Once you link the manual feeder tray to paper tray 1, you should be able to do what you described in your question.

I hope this helps, please let me know if you need further clarification.

Go to the printer tool box and select printer options, also check in advanced options, u should be able to set this there, there is no other way to set it that I know of except in the printer tool box options menu.

How do I change HP Laserjet 1100 to NOT manual feed under Printer Properties?


I suspect the printer is defaulting to manual feed because it thinks there is a page in the manual paper feed. Make sure no bits of paper debris are jamming the sensor.

Mfc 7860dw will not print from paper tray


Check the paper level in tray 1 and keep the paper within the levels indicated by the arrows on the side. I had this same problem, and although the paper tray accommodates the extra paper, the printer obviously does not like it and defaults to the manual feed.

I have a Dell 5210N mono printer. And I want to use the manual feed tray as a second paper drawer for letterhead paper only, ie leave a whole stack of paper in the manual feed. Then when I select manual...


Check the software provided or installed on your Computer you use for work(printing software), look for print properties, check for print settings, look for manual Feed, Under manual Feed, set it for letterheads, however this has to correspond with the Applications you are using to print letterheads out of( under print, into the preferrences you should be able to have the settings as well). If your printer software does have these settings, then you will have to do it Manually upon every print.

Printer is saying manual feed insert paper. Will not print


To load paper or other media in the Manual Feed Slot (directly above the Paper Tray)

You can load envelopes and special print media one at a time into this slot. Use the manual feed slot to print or copy on labels, envelopes or thicker paper.

1. Slide the paper guides to fit the paper size.
2. Using both hands put one sheet of paper in the manual feed slot until you feel the front edge of the paper touch the paper feed roller. Let go of the paper when you feel the machine feed the paper in a short distance.

Note: When you put paper in the manual feed slot, please remember the following:
■ The side to be printed on must be face up.
■ Put the leading edge (top of the paper) in first and push it gently into the slot.
■ Make sure that the paper is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
■ Do not put more than one sheet or envelope in the manual feed slot at a time or you may cause the machine to jam.
■ You can remove smaller sizes of printed paper from the output paper tray more easily if you lift the scanner cover using both hands as shown in the illustration.

You can still use the machine when the scanner cover is raised. You can return the scanner cover to its home position by pushing it down with both hands.



If you would like to disable Manual Feed Mode, check that the manual feed mode is not selected in the printer driver.

What does load mpf mean


It does stand for Manual Paper Feed.
On this printer, that's on the front of the unit, above the paper trays.

Once your PC has sent a print job with the paper-select set to "Manual Paper Feed" the printer will not do anything until it's processed this job.
The easiest way to do this is to put paper into the MPF and let it print, but at some point you're going to want to fix your PC so it doesn't send MPF print jobs anymore.

To do this, open your Printer Properties and select the default paper tray instead of the Manual Feed.

Hp 4250 manuall feed heavy paper message


You'll have to set up the paper settings within the copier to reflect heavy paper for the bypass tray. You'll need to make this a default setting. Then when you print out with heavy paper via the print drivers it should pick up automatically at the printer.

Paper source


I would suggest checking printer properties in the computer and ensure the paper size and source is Letter and set to Automatic Choose. Another choice may be to deleted the printer driver and re-install it. You can also go into the menu options until you get to Set factory defaults, press Select, then try the print job again.
I really suspect a program is controlling this from the computer.
To get a list of the existing printer settings, Select Menu and use the Right Arrow button until you get to Printer Menu Settings. The printed report should tell you what your actuall settings are. Maybe the default is set to Custom, instead of Letter.
The Set Factory Defaults option should fix most problems.

Paper Feed


The problems are particularly frustrating if it's a Word 2007 document that you're trying to print. Open the document, go to the Page Layout tab, select Page Set Up > Paper and set your printer source to whichever tray you want. Apply to the whole document and voila !
