Hi,

Try to check your paper tray and feeder. Make sure everything is aligned properly and there are no foreign objects (such as dust or paper) that could interfere with paper feeding process.

Hey not a big problem. its usually encountered by many users.
i too get this many times.
this happens when you keep papers freshly.
it needs to sense the papers kept.
now what you do is just keep more papers or try re-aligning the papers kept inside

    actually there is a sensor that detects the papers once they are loaded. in some printers it wont detect the papers once we keep it. even tough papers are there in tray it wont detect it. just trying keeping papers in different positions. it will detect it.

    advice would be always keep papers in reserve in the printer. dont let it make empty

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 28, 2007

    even if different positions dont work out see if there is any obstacle in the\at makes the sensor not reachable to paper... it may be like fust or somethin.. u will have to clean it..

    even after this its not detecting means please tell me..

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 28, 2007

    paper drawer is completely full... no printing happens..

    Trying to print documents - responce reads "load manual feeder with plain paper letter"

    ..if this is the problem solution is as follows..
    The printer may be trying to draw paper from a source other than the
    paper tray. Many printers have a hatch or slot in the front or on the
    side in which one can load non-standard paper sizes and envelopes. It
    may be trying to print there. Try to locate this place and put a few
    pieces of paper in there.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 29, 2007

    if the paper is not detected itself then sensor must be bad..
    sensor will be located near the edge of the slot where you input your papers..

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 29, 2007

    this model uses a LED to transmit a light through a little section of
    the empty toner cart. Its a little square area and should be located on
    the backside of the empty toner cart. you will see the sensor that it
    slides into. Make sure this area is clean.If this area is dirty you
    will still have a error light.

    my best guess would be there was spillage of toner on the sensors to
    detect the waste basket overflowing, hence why the error message is
    constant. This would require cleaning of the sensors, a relatively
    simple task but for proper access, the machine would need to be
    partially disassembles for thorough cleaning. It would be best done at
    a repair centre.

Tray1 Load LTR


Hi,

Hope this helps. Please check the printer properties before clicking Ok at print menu command. Now check the available paper tray handler. Try bypass, tray1 or MP tray.

Check also the default paper on Printer Menu command by pressing appropriate setup button. You can try also placing the paper on bypass try if available. The load LTR message means the machine waits a short bond paper on MP tray or on bypass tray.

Getting message to load tray 1 A4. load with


This problem is commonly found across printers, and is not specific to your printer model.

This problem occurs if:
  • You select the Hold mismatched documents option on the Advanced tab of the Properties windows of the printer.
  • The printer driver user interface (UI) plug-in uses the full UI replacement functionality. This means that printer driver replaces the default Windows printer dialog interface, so Windows fails to find certain registry keys to determine the paper type.
Microsoft has a hotfix for this issue for Vista and Windows Server 2008:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971319

If you are seeing this issue on XP, you can do the following:
1. Go to Printers and Faxes from the Start Menu (or type the following command in the Start->Run window: control printers).
2. Right click on the affected printer's icon, and click on Properties.
3. Click on the Advanced tab.
4. Uncheck the option Hold mismatched documents.
5. Some printers have the default paper type as Letter, so please change the printer properties to use A4 as the default
5. Click OK to save the settings change.
6. Wait for 15 seconds, and try to restart your printer job if needed. Usually, Windows will automatically restart the job, once the paper mismatch setting is resolved.
7. Ensure that you make the above printer property settings change on every computer where your printer is installed.

Happy printing!

Printer is loaded with paper but get message


Although you really haven't given me enough information, I will posit and response for you.

A "Load Paper Error can be caused by the application telling you to change the "TYPE or SIZE" of paper that is in your paper tray.

For example, The application thinks you want the page printed on "Letterhead" paper, but it know that you have plain bond paper installed.

So you are sent a change paper type message.

The fix is to hit go and skip around that error.

The actual fix is to make sure that your printer driver, application and the printer are all set to the same size paper and type paper.

Trying to print but it ask me to load paper or form feed. also got a bypass tray message.


Sound like the computer printer preferences "paper source" is set to bypass if set to "auto select" select the tray you want. Also make sure type of paper matches what is in printer.

'Load plain paper' message


Make sure that you have set the same paper type on both the printer driver and on the printer itself, using the on-printer menu. When I get this message, I usually had forgotten to change the paper type on the printer.
