Dell s2500 printer - multipurpose feeder not taking paper - never been used

I have a Dell s2500 printer that does a very nice job from the standard tray. However, the multipurpose tray, which I have never used, does nothing. I am trying to print envelopes. The totla use on the s2500 is less than 1000 sheets. Warrenty has long expired.

    The paper pickup roller catches the first sheet coming through EVERY SINGLE TIME. ! I just replaced the cartridge with a new one but I've watched that roller move round and round very smoothly until I put the paper tray in place.

I had the same problem and resorted to making sure that there were several envelopes in the tray -- and hand feeding them. I suspect we both have a pickup roller problem, which is typical of the printer, and is the source of a lot of phantom jams.

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam


Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

Lexmark t614 manual feed how it works


  1. Push the lower release latch. The multipurpose feeder door drops open.
  2. Pull out the metal bar in the recessed area on the multipurpose feeder, far enough to accommodate the paper you will be using.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the far right.
  4. Prepare the print material for loading:


      • Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
      • Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.
      • Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent jams.
      • Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the transparencies.

  5. Use the stack height limiter as a guide for stack height when loading print materials.
  6. Load one type of print material in the multipurpose feeder. Do not mix types.
  7. Slide the paper width guide over until it fits snugly against the side of the print material.

Load MP Feeder Letter


This is telling you to load Letter sized paper into the multipurpose feeder. Take the paper that is in the tray out and place in the correct Letter sized (8.5"x11") paper into the tray

What does it mean by Load MP feeder letter?


That means whatever you are trying to print is set to feed from the MP tray or Multipurpose Tray. The tray that folds out that is used to feed thicker paper or envelopes in. Just check your print setup screen and tell it to feed from the lower tray or tray1. If that is what you were trying to do.

Dell S2500 doesn't recognize loaded paper.


Pull the paper tray out and check if the paper end sensor is out of bracket or broken.When you remove the paper tray and look inside,you should be able to see the sensor lever that can be moved up by finger.It moved up by paper stock when you insert the tray.This is how paper detection mechanism works on majority of the printers.

Dell 5100cn Laser Printer Multipurpose Feed Problem


I had the same problem, my solution was:

1) Go into the Print dialog window, select your 5100cn printer and click the "Properties" button next to it.
2) Select the second tab, labeled "Paper Tray".
3) Select "MPF" from the "Paper Source" drop-down list.
4) Click the "MPF Settings" button and select "Envelope".

That should allow your program to print to MPF for envelopes. This needs to be done in your software, setting it on the printer's control panel didn't work for me.
