I believe these paper trasy have an adustabke feature allowing you to use different sizes of paper. There is a sensor associated with the mechanism that you adjust for papersize. This sensor needs to be adjusted to teh the correct paper size.

Atypically this sensor is attached to a thumbwheel in teh paper tray. So when you adjust the paper size in teh tray you must also turn this thumb wheel to refelct the paper size

Lexmark T632 has 2 (ea) 500 sheet drawers, but once the paper runs out in Drawer 1 it will not automatically pull from Drawer 2. Please advise how to fix this problem.


go to Menu, reports, and print out the top report.

This will show you what the printer sees as the default tray, and what paper size and type are set for each tray.

If you have plain paper in each tray, make sure that the setting page also shows that each tray is set to letter, plain.

This printer sets the tray type automatically, based on the way the tray is set. There are little tabs on the side of the tray that change as you change the size of the paper with the paper guides.

If the paper guide is set even one click off, this can cause the printer to read the paper size incorrectly, and thus will not change to the next tray. ( if it thinks that tray 2 is A4 paper, but you are printing letter, it will not change to tray 2).

if the trays ARE set correctly, but the printer is still reading it wrong, then there could be something wrong with the sensor ( metal fingers and switch ) inside the printer.

It means that you under printer properties/preferences - custom paper size have ltr size as your default, change it in desired size, eg. A4.
Then turn off and on the copier.

Or check the sensor position on your drawer. blue rail with triangle that must be on A4 or A3 depends on paper that you have in drawer.

Keeps saying add paper but paper is in legal and letter drawer


Check the display carefully, is it waiting for a different size to be supplied, or is it waiting for apaper to be loaded into the bypass tray

If you attempt to print/copy to a size not loaded into the machine, they will wait for the requested size. (depending on your optional menu settings)
This is especially a problem if you eg. try to print A4 size, and only have US legal or US letter loaded into the machine, and visa-versa.

Are you living in the USA? The size A4 is the Europe size of paper to our letter size... You can try to take the paper tray out and look inside, for any paper jammed in the back of the paper tray area.

I'm not sure if this will help, but are you printing from adobe? If the page is a little small on the pdf and you have Adobe set to "adjust paper size to fit document" the printer will keep trying to print to A4, which is smaller than letter.

If the printer itself is doing this when printing from any program than I'm not sure what is wrong.

Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling driver? Do you have the newest version of the driver, i have the same printer and I think online a May 2008 driver is available

Printer will not print. Displays no paper.


Is the page stop at the back of the tray set correctly? If you have the stop a "click" off, rather then seeing letter size, it will see universal or A4 and say no paper, because it's looking for letter size. If it is on the network, just open a browser and go to the IP address of the printer, or print out a configuration report. That will tell you what size the drawer is reading.

The top-loading sheet feeder accommodates approximately 150 sheets (depending on weight), and the front feeder is good for around 100 sheets. Actual media sizes supported by the main feeder (top-loading) include A4, B5, A5, Letter, Legal, Envelopes (DL size or Commercial 10), 10x15cm(4" x 6"), 10x18cm, 13x18cm, 20x25cm, and Credit Card (54x86mm), while the front feeder is less accommodating with just A4, Letter, and B5.
