    I have the same problem where it is telling me [No paper] Add Paper, even though there is paper in there. I have taken the paper tray in and out multiple times. I also went to Start/AllPrograms/Samsung SCX-4100 Series, clicked on Maintenance icon, and ran that. I successfully printed the test page. Thought it was fixed, so tried to print my document again, and got the same error of [No paper] Add Paper.

    my scx 4100 all in one laser printer keeps giving 'no paper' message. I have added/subtracted/changed paper, unplugged the printer, added new driver. Nothing works (actually it did correct itself very temporarily and then resumed with the error message above. Going nuts!

I posted the same problem in here on 31 January 2008 and have found a solution to my problem. In the Properties window of my SCX-4100 printer, under Paper tab, I found it was showing my paper source as "Manual Feed". This was an absolute mystery as I've never used the Manual Feed, so it has glitched to that setting of its own accord. The printer would not work in any programs so it must have set itself to "Manual Feed" as the default. Once I set it back to "AutoSelect", it works fine again.

(As an aside, I discovered the answer when I was trying to print a document in Word for the nth time, and kept getting the Add paper/No Paper message. In Word, I went into File=Print= and under the Properties button opposite my printer, under Paper tab, I saw the problem. And so ended my days of frustration.)

I wish everybody else luck, and hope my post will help someone.

Mine does the same thing. Very frusterating! Only fix is to turn off and back on.

I have a similar printer. Sometimes the bottom paper tray gets stuck or caught. Make sure the printer is on a flat surface.

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Pull the paper tray all the way out.
3. Take out all the paper and then place the tray back in.
4. Turn the machine on and let it try to print without paper.
5. When the light comes on add paper hit the button and you should be good to go.

Did something???? How do I cancel printing? Unplugging, Info I've been given will not stop printing, even when I press Delete or Cancel. It just wants to keep printing...

there is worm virus that will make a printer print until it runs out of paper and if you add more paper it will keep printing till it runs out again i would take the paper out of the machine and run an antivirus scan on your computer usually the print is not legible with this virus
