Opened "Control panel>printers/faxes>Printing preferences>Basic>Paper source, and selected Tray 1 for all pages. Then went into the print menu in Adobe Reader, wich is where I was trying to print from originally, and deselected "choose paper source by PDF page size. It seemed to work.

If you normally print on letter sized paper, then some program you are using is trying to print on A4 paper (PDF files often the culprit) and the default on most printers is that if they do not have the paper loaded it will ask for it from the MP tray. You can check your printer settings as you may be able to tell the printer to automatically sub letter paper when A4 is requested.
The printer tells you to insert a letter format paper in the mp (multi purpose) feeder (the manual tray). If you press the GO key the print probably proceeds with print job (if has the paper loaded in mp feeder)
MP Feeder refers to Multi Purpose Feeder or Manual Paper Feeder or just plain bypass feeder. There should be a door that folds down to gain access to your MP Feeder tray. Try loading letter size paper on this tray.
The MP tray referred to is the Multi Purpose tray and is located at the front of the printer. To access it, you need to find the 2 indentations at the side of the front feed assembly and pull them towards you. this then gives access to the MP tray. Don't forget to press the blue button after loading the paper. Your user guide/manual will give clear instructions and pictures. It may also be called manual feed tray. Once loaded with the correct paper press the online button and printing will start.
If this is the first time you have seen this error, do the following:
Power off the printer.
Remove all installed paper trays.
Make sure the paper is loaded correctly in each tray. If it is not, reload the paper into that tray.
Look up into the printer where the paper tray slides in and out. Check the feed (autocompensator) assembly for any damage.
If everything is fine, reinstall the tray and power on the printer.
Try printing a few print jobs.
If the error does not return, continue using the printer as before.
Keep an eye on it for the next few days. If the error does not
return, it may have been an isolated incident.
If the error returns just as soon as you power on the printer or
when you try to print again, you will need to find out which paper
tray/paper source is causing the problem.
If the printer has only the one integrated paper tray, the problem
will be with either the tray 1 pick arm/autocompensator assembly or the
printer's engine/system board.
If the printer has more than one paper tray installed, try printing
from each paper tray one at a time. The best way to do this is to have
all of the paper trays empty and then proceed as follows:
Put paper in tray 1 only.
Print from tray 1.
If tray 1 works fine, empty tray 1 and put paper in tray 2 and so on until you encounter the error message.
If you receive the error when printing from one particular tray, power off the printer to clear the error.
Power the printer back on.
Skip the faulty paper feed slot and move on to the next one (if
another one is present). If you can print from all but one of the paper
trays, this is the source of the problem.
If you have extra
paper trays/drawer units installed and the error occurs from only one
particular source, there are some things you can do as a temporary fix.
If the error is occurring from an OPTIONAL paper drawer/source,
power off the printer and remove the defective drawer from the printer.
You will then need to set up the printer to print from a different
tray. For information on removing an optional drawer, click here.
If the error is occurring from the integrated paper tray (tray 1)
AND you have optional paper trays installed, take all of the paper out
of tray 1 but leave tray 1 installed. Set up the printer to print from
one of the other paper tray sources (tray 2, tray 3, multi-purpose
And if your getting the same error then you need to get it serviced...
Did you set the default tray in the "Printer Properties" in Control Panel? Or, if you did, do you get any paper tray related error messages? It's possible that there is some sensor flag that's malfunctioning. Usually, however, it's just a setting in the printer driver.
