Question about Samsung CLX-2160N All-In-One Printer

Open Question

Printer won't print. I get the message that the paper tray is empty when its not empty?? This started after I loaded paper in the tray the last time. Removing the tray & putting it back doesn't work. Resetting the printer by turning it off & on again doesn't work. My business cannot function without it. Please if you can help me as soon as possible it would be greatly appreciated. Kevin

SOURCE: Paper will not feed

What you need to do is remove the tray, and look for the feed rollers and clean them with either alcohol or a soapy cleaner like Fantastic.
Clean them a few times, make sure they are dry then try again.
That may solve it completely, or your rollers may be slick and need replaced.
When those rolls get dirty, it's like trying to drive on ice. You just slip. Also, if those rolls are needing replaced, I wouldn't be upset with the refurb work. Sometimes those rolls fake you out. They appear and to touch feel perfectly fine, but try and feed a piece of paper, and it just won't.
If you can, look into the paper tray with a flash light, and see if they are turning. If they are, then dirt or slick rolls is the only problem you have.

SOURCE: printer message "paper empty custom in MP"

Its asking for you to put some paper in the tray at the side of the printer. There is a small hatch on the right hand side which will turn in to a paper tray when pulled open. Put in the paper and it will print. You will then have to disable that tray to prevent it happening again.

Every time I try to print to my Dell 3110cn printer, a message pops up stating "Load Tray 1 024965 Executive" Paper tray is full and inserted correctly...what do I need to do to make it print?


I would try two steps:
1) Check the "pending documents" for your printer and make sure the printer queue is empty - delete any pending document.
2) Check the printer settings and make sure the default paper type is not set to "Executive". You may also check this in the paper properties of the document that you want to print.

My OKI C5500 will only print from the MP tray, and will not take paper from the bottom paper tray, even though there is plenty of paper in the bottom tray. Its giving me a 490 Error message, but I do NOT...


490 error means -

LOAD mmm AND PRESS ONLINE SWITCH 490: MP TRAY EMPTY

Print job from MP Tray has been received and the MP Tray is empty.

Load the requested media (mmm) in the MP Tray and press ON-LINE.

Check your print driver settings and see if your defualt try is set for the MP Tray. Also see if the page setup for the print job is set for MP tray.

    "490: MP tray is empty" message when trying to print labels from Word 2003


    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.

    Not noticing paper


    I took an envelope, folded in the end to triple its thickness and placed it in the middle of the paper tray underneath the very last page. This pushed the center of the paper up more and it had no problem detecting or getting hold of the paper. Have to be sure the paper supply tray is full though. When it gets to the last five or seven pages it has difficulty again. It's a nontechnical fix, but it seems to work.
