SOURCE: Error Message on Dell 5100cn

Hello CAJ1,

Error Load MPF / A4 Plain 1/ 024-969 means there are no more A4 paper in the tray.

1. First of all, verify if there is any paper in the tray at all! (Don't worry, these things happen to the best of us:) Make sure you put the papers in the tray according to their sizes...eg: A4, Letter, etc.

2. Next, from printer properties, select the appropriate paper size - A4 when taking a printout.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best I can. I am here at your service.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

SOURCE: Paper Tray Settings

You have Auto Tray Switching acticated (ATS). Unless you specify each tray/paper with different settings it will switch.

Go in to the utility menu and you can find this in the paper tray settings area I believe.

You can turn this off completely to avoid this in the future.

If you look around you can even just tweak the settings for this, but in your case i would just shut it off.

SOURCE: Dell 3100cn Printer will not print

I had to actually change the settings in Microsoft Word to resolve this problem.

If you go to page setup > paper source > there should be lists for "first page" and "other pages".

You can set this to "as per printer settings" and hopefully it should work.

Hey guys. Dont assume i know alot about printers, because i dont, but after some looking around the loading tray i found the problem. At the right side of the loading tray, more towards the back, are 3 white plastic things that sorta stick out, however one of them on mine seemed broken and didnt stick out, these devices seemed to be attached to some sort of lever, anyways... i just stuck a compressed lump of foil underneath it to make sure it did stick out, not exactly the best of solutions but it worked for me :) . If you flip the printer upsidedown you can notice to which parts the white deivices correspond too. i hope this helps someone, and that it wasnt too confusing :P.

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.

Paper not pulling from tray 2 when tray 1 empties - Lexmark T654


For the majority of the Lexmark printers, all that needs to be done is to set the paper size and type the same for each drawer. Example - drawer 1 & 2 sizes are set to letter, drawer 1 & 2 paper types are set to plain. Set up this way, when drawer 1 empties, the printer will automatically switch to drawer 2 to supply the paper.

Is there away of getting around the paper orientation when I duplex.


This cant be right, if you print on one side, then it is the same as when it prints the first page of a duplex print.

Paper should be face down, head to front for both, make sure you are using duplex driver for your printer and duplex option is ticked. (4250DuplexTwotrayNetwork)\

make sure trays on machine are identified with correct papertype (tray 2 plain and tray 3 letterhead or vice versa)

printer I beleive has setting too enable duplex in print menu.

tray one in manual feeder on these.

When I set these up sometimes I install the print driver twice, ones set to use letterhead and the other plain, so customer can just choose which ever one at print time.

Usally it is set up that you go to driver and select tray or windows decides depending on what doc type is set on what you are printing.

So you need to check settings on printer paper handling and printer menu, you also need to check driver on pc, if on a network you may need to have admin rights to change driver config on server if your system requires it. But you need to check drive has coorect tray/paper type and options too

You also need to check doc type settings on individual document being printed

I have 1000's of customers, running HP (including 4250dtn and this has never been a issue raised.)

Ignore manual, stick letter head in tray 2/3 face down front and print single sided, then use same tray and do it duplex, it will do as the first one did then turn it over and print other side.

I think most customers don't duplex on letterhead, they use that as cover then duplex on plain, but I cant see it not working if you did, otherwise I would of come across it buy now, this machines format has been around for ages and they are great workhourse printers once noisy swing plate gear fault is fixed (common 4250 fault)

Printing using various trays


Yes

 

Set tray (3? ) or other non standard paper type trays to type setting of letterhead and set normal paper tray (2) paper type to plain .

 

You do this on printer keyboad find menu then find paper handling, tray xxx, paper type. xxxx...set or tick

 

Via operations panel you can also printout current settings too to see if you have done the change if you do one before and after

 

Then test,

 

There are other settings on your printer that can effect this and driver configuation and doc type setting on pc that can effect this also but try step above first and report back if still having issues. Is it run by a server? Do you abity to change driver settings on your pc?
