Try to load more paper..some machines do not "feel " the paper unless there is a considerable thick bundle..
otherwise..it is just a mechanical problem ..just do not reach to the paper to grab it ..try it ..and let me know if it works ..

My Kodak printer wont grab the paper in the paper tray


Amandasplace:

There is a sensor that is located where the front edge of the paper sits when you load paper. If you take all of the paper out of the feed tray and use a flashlight to look in the throat of the paper feed area, you should see a small piece of plastic (in the shape of a blade) sticking up. If you do not see that sensor flag it may be broken off, or there may be a small piece of paper jammed against the sensor flag, keeping it from moving downward when you load the paper tray. That can happen if you pull a mis-fed piece of paper out of the machine in the opposite direction that the paper normally travels when printing. When you load the paper in the machine, it pushes that sensor flag down, telling the machine that there is paper loaded. either the sensor flag is broken off or there is something jamming the paper sensor, keeping it from being pushed down by the paper.

I just replaced an ink cartridge and the printer keeps telling me to load paper then press OK, but I already have paper loaded. The machine keeps trying to pick up the paper, but unsuccessfully.


Hi, Please check the paper and the paper tray. The paper or the the paper tray is inserted properly. Turn off the printer and turn it back on after 10sec. and try to print that should work. Please get back to us if this information helps you solve the problem.

The paper isn't properly loaded. remove the paper then there should be a lever near the paper loading section that you push or pull to let the paper enter the feeding area. put in paper and return the lever to the proper position. check your owners manual. to get a manual try www.sharpusa.com .

You need to try a thicker paper, Heavier stock to double print the page. Slightly more expensive. Recycled paper typically will not work for this type of function. I had this same problem and found this was the only solution.

Dell 3000cn keep getting load mpf when i try to print but there is paper in the tray. how do I get it to recognize the paper. I've changed nothing on the computer but this just started to happen! please...


I have a Dell 3010n myself, and a few times I did run into that "Load MPF" issue.
1.) Before printing a document, please check and see the properties. i.e. Kind/type of paper, which tray, or if printing envelopes or any other document than a regular 8 x11 paper. Putting all the tray and paper type selection on "Auto" can be very helpful.
2.) On the printer itself, there is a menu button where you can configure the type of paper, i.e. regular 20 llb. copy/print paper, glossy photopaper, thicker paper - after you place a fresh load on the paper tray and slide it in, usually it will ask you which type of paper you just loaded. Make sure it is the same settings as the document that you are trying to print: i.e. if document settings on computer was set to print on photopaper and you have regular paper on the tray, the printer will do a "Load MPF".
The paper sensor on it is amazingly (for a Dell, that is) sensitive and it can differentiate across a lot of paper types/thickness. If you have several computers and user across a network, and there are several paper-type settings done on the printer itself, this "Load MPF" issue will present itself more often.
In my case, it's simply because the person who recently changed the paper-type to glossy cover paper from some user who previously printed to a transparency forgot to revert MPF/Tray 1 to regular copy/print paper. Most cases, the printer setting on the PC has been left to print on to a transparency by default, so even if I stack the tray with copy paper to the hilt, it still will do "Load MPF".
