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!

Trying to print on a #10 envelope from iMac 27 with Os 10.5.1 using iWork. Printer will not load paper


I am on an iMac using OSX 10.5.8 and printing on an Epson R1800. With iWork, word processing module I set up the envelope to print and under the File menu, select page setup and choose #10 Envelope with Portrait orientation. I feed the envelope into the printer in the normal horizontal, top first, print surface up. In the File menu I select Print and hit Return. Most of the time this works. Sometimes the envelope feeds through without printing, and occasionally the envelope won't feed but the printer goes through the printing cycle. The R1800 is not the ideal envelope printer. It is made to print photos on photographic paper. I use an old fashioned typewriter to address envelopes.

How to print #10 envelopes


Here's the link to the Lexmark website to download the Lexmark C543 User's Guide. http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/c54x/v14841473_en.pdf. There are two ways to print #10 envelopes, using the Multipurpose Feeder or the Manual Feeder. If you don't have the Mulitpurpose Feeder, you have to use the Manual Feeder and feed the envelopes one at a time. Scroll to Page 44 for MPF instructions or Page 46 for Manual Feeder instructions. Hope this helps.

How do you load an envelope in the printer?


Hi, Please follow these steps to load :-
1.Turn on your printer. Make sure it is in ready mode (green status light on) and it is not printing or running any other operations.
  1. 2.Determine whether your printer uses a top-feed or bottom-feed. Blank paper stands upright in a top-feeding printer and lays in a tray on a bottom-feeding printer.
    3.Load your envelope in portrait mode for envelopes that are 8.5 inches wide (standard paper size). Fold the flap down and place the envelope with the side to be printed on facing you. Load the envelope so that the side with the flap enters the printer first.
    4.Load your envelope in landscape mode for longer envelopes that cannot fit in lengthwise. Close the flap. Load the envelope so that the left side enters the printer first (the flap will be on your left).
    5.Set the paper guides. This guide is the sliding piece on your feed tray (it will usually be on the left). Slide it over so that the paper is held straight when it enters the printer.
    6.Set up your printing preferences. Go to "File > Page Setup" or access your printer’s properties page. Under orientation, select portrait or landscape mode depending on how you loaded your envelopes. If your printer has this option, select “Left” for bottom-feeding printers and "Right” for top-feeding printers
    7.Take a look at the "Print Preview" (usually found under "File" menu) and make sure everything looks good. Then print.
  2. Thanks!

Printing #10 envelopes with 5100cn, using MPF. Set paper size to #10 envelope, output same, MPF set for envelopes. Printer display says load #10 envelopes, which are loaded. What do I do now?


You can download the manual for your printer here. You merely need to go to the word processor or program you're printing from and load the addresses and send them to the printer. Try just one as a test to make sure your margins and spacing are set up correctly.
For Dell specs on print media guidelines for your machine, see here. For a blurb about en velope loading, see here. All options here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Printing Envelopes


Be sure you have set the PRNIT PREFFERENCES on your program that you are using to print the envelope to accept a #10 envelope and not 8.5x11 paper, you ALSO must set the PRINTER PREFERNECE to MANUAL FEED and not automatic so it won't look to the paper tray.

Printing an envelope in cs3 on an epson stylus photo r1800


You can try using Microsoft word in printing on envelopes, it is easier. On my MS word>tools>letters and mailings>envelopes and labels>click on feed and use the fourth from the left option.
Load the envelope at the right side of the printer> the envelope flap should be on the left facing the printer.

Dell 5100cn Laser Printer Multipurpose Feed Problem


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.

Envelope printing


Got a 3100CN and had the same problem but found that a) Changing paper size from the web doesn't work but b) Go to the printer control panel on the printer and use the menu to set the paper size for the MPF tray for FREE. Now your application under windows will overide the whatever the printer thinks and will print. Envelope via Word all work without problem. Suggestion . Configure two printers one B&W using tray one and one colour using MPF and you can now quickly select whether to use colour or b&w. Regards John N - N2UYI/G7LTQ
