Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer
My Dell 3100cn printer keeps asking me to "Load Tray 1 Letter Plain 1".
There is already letter sized paper in Tray 1.
It will allow me to cancel the job, but as soon I try to print another document, I get the same message again.
I checked the paper guards and everything seems to be lined up appropriately.
Please, Any Suggestions??
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.

I had the same problem as TBPC, and as the third post indicated, I found the sensors on the paper feeder assembly(which had been dropped) loose. The sensor is made up of just three white buttons on the left side of the assembly (where you put the tray into, the part that seperates from the rest of the printer when you pick it up). I opened the side of the assembly, put the sensor back in place, and it detected the paper. I originally thought it may have been the tray itself, so I saved some money by following the third post. Thank you, whoever you are.

My 3100cn will not print. It saids replace cynide toner. I have not done that. Is that why it won't pirnt?

The replace Yellow toner message can be overidden by chosing "Non-Dell Toner" from the setup menu, or web interface.

First, the obvious:
Make sure both the laser printer (through its front panel) and the program's printing preferences are set to the same paper size.
Now my story:
Printing out a full page graphic. MPF with covers2/letter. 3100 kept saying 'load MPF' no matter what (reboot|reload|re-front panel menu). Changed printing preference in program to align center and it printed without a problem. Makes no sense and I can't reproduce it. Maybe a fluke or maybe a bug in the error handling of margins.
