There is usually no reset from the machine it is in your printer properties. Open the properties and set it to the tray you want it to feed from and usually there is a apply button try that.

Lexmark E232, keeps telling me paper tray is empty even though it has paper in the tray, then it just keeps clicking instead of picking up the paper and feeding into the printer? Please help


Go the Lexmark website and search on support for their telephone number. I've always had a experience with their support team even if the printer is out of warranty.

Make sure you have selected the multi purpose feeder (front of the printer) in the driver, not the Manual Feeder.

The manual feeder will prompt for paper on each page. All you have to do is to press the "Go" button.

T642 wont recognize tray 2 or duplex


You need to be sure you add the duplex unit and tray unit in the windows driver. The "device" tab will allow you to add the duplex and tray to the
printer.

You can replace those rollers. They wear smooth very quickly. In a pinch you can also peel them off the hub and put them on inside out. It will give it traction. It sounds like you already know about the little sensor in the trays themselves. I've seen them pop out of position and cause those probs. I don't think they could have made those sensors any cheaper if they had tried!

Urgent! MP Feeder problem - please help!


If your application is requiring the printer to select the manual paper feeder, you will get this problem. This feature is selected different ways in different application programs and different operating systems, but usually, after you select print, there will be a popup that allows you select the number of copies, portrait or landscape mode, etc. Either here, or in a secondary popup you reach by Print Properties or Advanced or some such button, there should be a paper source selection. Select Tray 1 instead of Manual Feed.

There is also a paper source selection available from the front panel. TO select Tray 1 instead of the manual paper feed:

Menu> - Select (Paper) - Select (Paper Source)
Use the Menu> key to select Tray 1
Select - Return - Return

Sometimes, for no apparent reason, my T614 loses its mind and wants to use the manual paper feed. I turn off the printer and turn it back on again to reset it... just like Windows! I could probably use the front panel to reset the printer, but it's easier to cycle the power.

I'm betting that answering your urgent question two months later didn't help you get your very important work completed on time. I hope you are still employed.

Lexmark t642 load mp feeder with letter


The reason that your printer is asking you to load paper into the MPF is that it doesn't think it has that size paper in tray 1 or 2. Make sure that the green paper guide in the paper tray that you want to print from is latched in the correct position. This guide tells the printer what size paper is in the tray. If you have it even slightly out of position you'll get this message.

Paper does not feed from Tray 1.


Check your printer settings.

Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing

Printer problem


Check your paper configuration. Make sure Tray 1 is configured for Plain paper and is showing the right paper size. If it is configured for anything other than Plain Paper, most of your jobs will not print. Also, if the size says something like Univseral, then the printer is not touch that tray unless your print job also specifies Univeral as the size. If is does say Universal, check the paper guide in the tray and make sure it is pointing exactly at the paper size you are using
