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.

SOURCE: My Dell Color Laser Printer 5110 cn won't print.

it's asking for paper in the manual Paper Feeder (MPF). Somewhere in your settings you have it printing to the MPF. Check the settings in the printer prefrences, the printer itself and the software you're using.
Cheers.

When I go to print I get message load mpf 024-969


This error typically means that the Size of paper defined in the print job being sent from the application does not match the size of the paper the printer has set for the MPF. (in this printer, MPF = Manual Feed)
For example: If you send a Letter size job to the printer from, lets say MS-Word, but the printer currently has Legal size paper assigned in the MPF, this error will result.

Change the Windows printer to default settings

My dell 3130cn printer giving the message load mpf?


The MPF is your Manual Paper Feed.

If you specified specialty media like envelope or card stock, the printer expects that to draw from the MPF.

It is also possible that the MPF isn't sensing when paper is present and you will need to replace that sensor.

Good luck!

MPF 024-969


Is the paper pushed all the way back into the MPF?
If yes, what type/size paper is your application sending?
If you try to print the internal Printer Settings report, does it print?
This error typically means that no paper is sensed in the MPF OR that the wrong type/size paper is in the tray. (MPF settings do not match job specs)

Mpf error


MPF is refering to Manual Paper Feed or bypass tray. This tray should fold down to enable loading of paper. It is mostlikely above tray 1.

Dell 5100cn won't recognize mpf tray


Go to the printer web page by entering the IP address of the printer in an Internet Browser.
click Printer Settings menu entry
If the Substitute Tray value is not MPF Feed, click on the Printer Settings tab
Set the Substitute Tray value to MPF Feed
Click the button Apply New Settings, it will request the admin id & password for the printer.

In trying to resolve this issue, initially I set the Tray Settings to Panel Specified from Driver Specified at the printer's panel. Since the issue was resolved with this set, I just left it that way.

Printing Labels


The MPF is simply the "Manual Paper Feed".
Your printer is set by default that the MPF paper type is "plain paper". Since you are telling the printer that you are trying to print lables, the printer is simply telling you that you need to load the MPF with lables.

If you say "ok", the printer sould continue and print the lables.

If you only print lables, the you can change the default paper for the MPF tray to "lables", and then you will no longer be prompted to load the tray.
