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.

Make sure that you have tray 1 set for the correct paper type. Leaving the paper type as unknown will result in very slow printing as the printer will assume that it might be printing on heavy media, envelopes or the like.

We haven't been using this long and it has been great, suddenly getting an error -load paper in the MP tray? out of the blue


Most probably either someone requested manual feed, or someone tried to print a document, which has a different page size that usual (or perhaps envelopes or something), so it is asking for this special-size media to be fed into the manual/multipurpose tray.

Just put some paper in the MPT and investigate whose documents require this special atention, and perhaps find out why is this person sending non-standard print jobs.

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.

CD sleeves.


Julie,
I believe that there are kits available that include sheets of CD sleeves and software to help you print to them. Otherwise, if just printing simple labels you could set up the print job to print in the section of the sheet where the sleeve you're printing resides.
If the sleeves are stacked and not like 6 to a 8 1/2" X 11" sheet, then I imagine it would be just like setting your printer up to feed envelopes (if that's possible, in the old days we would but the sleeve in a typewriter and viola. We didn't have a choice on the font though. :(
I hope another one of us posts an easier solution for you, and Good Luck.

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.
