    I do not know where the manual feed is for this machine. It only has paper on the inside.

    The printer reads Load Mpf Letter Plain. I have done all steps suggested.

    My 300cn says "Load MPF Letter" when I try to print -- although I have paper loaded in the tray. I have tried resetting everything and it has printed intermittently, but now it doesn't print at all. I have had this problems for several months and haven't used the printer in along time. I use Vista and downloaded the latest driver from 10/04/07.

When printing, select the cassete tray. it is asking to load paper on the manual tray on the front, so it keeps asking until you put paper there

hope this helps
thanks for your rating

    ok, so you don't have the optinal tray then?



    this is directly from the manual....



    Make sure the size and type settings for the multipurpose feeder are set to the correct value for the print media you have loaded. (this means, envelope, letter, legal...)



    Select print media source, size, and type in your software program and select the print media size and type on the printer operator panel.

I just fixed this moments ago with the following solution. The problem was my configuration on the printer itself, not what I had in my Print menu on the computer. What you need to do is to change the media type the printer sees. I don't know how it got changed to begin with but apparently, the printer thought it had a different type of media than what was actually there. That's why the message came up, since the computer was being told to print a document of an 8 1/2 X 11 size and the Printer is thinking it has something different.

To fix the probem, press the menu button in the front of the computer. You will see the first in a list of menus pop up in the display. Then press the bottom button under the big round button just once until you see the display read "Tray settings." Now press the arrow to the right to select "Paper type." Play around until you get to fix the settings to the type of paper you have. That solved it for me.

I found a little solution for this problem, but i don't know if it works for you. First of all, i refeed the paper into my tray , then i selected the media source to free size regardless what you want to print for. I hope this will help

My LaserJet4250n Printer keeps printing a page recurrently. Except the former job is cancelled Manually, it prints the previous instead of the currently sent job. Moreover,it displays the following...


I think what is happening is when you get the error, the printer automaticaly reprints the page it was on when it got an error condition that makes it think it didn't print the page correctly. The clearing paper path message comes up after it thinks it had a jam. Displaying load plain paper could be because either the printer is not configed for the correct type of paper you have in the tray you are trying to prin form(push the green check button, arrow downt to paper handling and see what your trays are set for.) Also there is a blue switch on the tay(looking for front of tray it will be on the right hand side of tray rail) the switch says standard or custom. The switch should be in the standard position.
Are you getting any errors or jams, if so, tell me what they are.

Paper does not feed from Tray 1.


Check your printer settings.

Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing

Tray output


You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back
