    The printer is expecting A4 because it is set up that way internally. To correct, push the menu button. The first choice should be information. Press select and the first choice should be Print menu. Press select. This will print the entire menu tree. Find paper size and follow the menu to that position. Choose Letter and press select. Press menu and you are ready to print.

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

Load mp feader a4


Please determine what size you are trying to print (A4, Letter, Legal, etc.). The printer is requesting A4 sized paper in the maunal paper feeder becuase either you selected manual feed or the setting for the default try (usually tray 1) is not set to the correct paper size. In your case, make sure the green slide adjustment on tray 1 is set to A4.

Red light flashes, screen says "load correct paper: A4." The paper is alreay loaded. I cannot print.


When <LOAD CORRECT PAPER> appears on the display, the size of the paper in the paper cassette or multipurpose tray is different from that of the paper specified in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>. You need to load the correct size paper or change the paper size in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>.
Check if the size of paper loaded in the paper cassette or multi-purpose tray meets the paper setting specified in the machine.

check the following:
1. The paper size specified on the printer driver screen
2. Paper loaded in the machine
3. The paper size set in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>

Check the proper orientation of the paper. For example, if you are loading A4 size. In your tray you can find 2 A4 size. Select A4R in you want to position your paper Landscape or A4 if portrait.
To verify also the correct paper size, put your paper on the platen glass. Markings on the two sides of the platen glass shows the correct paper size.

I bought canon printer MF4150 from Singapore. The problem is when i print or photo copy A4 or legal size after 1 printer it errors and said load proper size @ MP tray


The printer may have a setup for a region which will change the paper size. Also the paper tray may need to have the paper size adjusted on it physically. Save the paper size in the preferences to A4.

If the color or photo paper is loaded in the input tray when the printer aligns, the calibration might fail.
Follow these steps to resolve the issue.
Load unused plain white letter or A4 paper into the input tray.
Press the OK button on the control panel.

Paper tray selection


Go to Paper Menu > Paper Size > Tray 1 - note what the Auto setting states (Letter, A4, Legal, etc.) Pull the tray out to set what it is configured for. Then reinsert it & pull it out a few times, noting what the display show the Auto size show. It should match the tray's settings.

If the Display indicates otherwise, it means one of two things:

1) The "auto size sensing" board on the left may be defective. The left side of the tray has a matrix of 3 plastic tabs that stick out in certain order depending on the tray setting. If this board fails, it may show Executive or A4 when the tray is set for letter.

2) The tray may be in-between two settings. Try to readjust the tray length setting between sizes. (You will notice the plastic tabs will change order.) The last time you loaded paper it may have pushed it just enough so that it is no longer seen as letter by the auto sensing board.

I hope this helps...
