I had the same problem, my solution was:

1) Go into the Print dialog window, select your 5100cn printer and click the "Properties" button next to it.
2) Select the second tab, labeled "Paper Tray".
3) Select "MPF" from the "Paper Source" drop-down list.
4) Click the "MPF Settings" button and select "Envelope".

That should allow your program to print to MPF for envelopes. This needs to be done in your software, setting it on the printer's control panel didn't work for me.

Lexmark t614 manual feed how it works


  1. Push the lower release latch. The multipurpose feeder door drops open.
  2. Pull out the metal bar in the recessed area on the multipurpose feeder, far enough to accommodate the paper you will be using.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the far right.
  4. Prepare the print material for loading:


      • Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
      • Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.
      • Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent jams.
      • Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the transparencies.

  5. Use the stack height limiter as a guide for stack height when loading print materials.
  6. Load one type of print material in the multipurpose feeder. Do not mix types.
  7. Slide the paper width guide over until it fits snugly against the side of the print material.

What does it mean by Load MP feeder letter?


That means whatever you are trying to print is set to feed from the MP tray or Multipurpose Tray. The tray that folds out that is used to feed thicker paper or envelopes in. Just check your print setup screen and tell it to feed from the lower tray or tray1. If that is what you were trying to do.

Dell Laser Printer 5100cn Load MPF Letter Plain 1 !


Are you trying to use the "MPF" (Manual Paper Feed) tray?

If you are then the manual paper feed tray is usually a fold down flap at the back of the printer. It only accepts on piece of paper at a time.

However, if you are just trying to print to the printer's default tray, then you need to check both the "Page Setup" in the application and the printer driver properties to make sure that you are calling the correct paper tray.

Go into the paper menu and set the multipurpose feeder paper size to letter. It will work if the paper size is set correctly for the MPF.

If you have the option to print in Horizontal or Vertical feed, try the Horizontal option and be sure the feed guide slide is not too tight against the envelope.

Dell s2500 printer - multipurpose feeder not taking paper - never been used


I had the same problem and resorted to making sure that there were several envelopes in the tray -- and hand feeding them. I suspect we both have a pickup roller problem, which is typical of the printer, and is the source of a lot of phantom jams.

CD sleeves.


Julie,
I believe that there are kits available that include sheets of CD sleeves and software to help you print to them. Otherwise, if just printing simple labels you could set up the print job to print in the section of the sheet where the sleeve you're printing resides.
If the sleeves are stacked and not like 6 to a 8 1/2" X 11" sheet, then I imagine it would be just like setting your printer up to feed envelopes (if that's possible, in the old days we would but the sleeve in a typewriter and viola. We didn't have a choice on the font though. :(
I hope another one of us posts an easier solution for you, and Good Luck.
