Paper Feed When I try to print from the paper tray, the printer automatically switches to the manual feed tray.

    Yes! Mine's doing exactly the same. Weirdest thing is, I printed the first of two docs perfectly ok but then the problem kicked in on the second one, only minutes afterwards. Printer is also telling me it's out of ink, don't know if this is in some way connected? Doesn't seem logical, but I'm going to try replacing cartridges in the absence of any better ideas.

Paper must be selected to PLAIN PAPER

Posted on Aug 16, 2008

The problems are particularly frustrating if it's a Word 2007 document that you're trying to print. Open the document, go to the Page Layout tab, select Page Set Up > Paper and set your printer source to whichever tray you want. Apply to the whole document and voila !

Hi the machine could be defaulted to print from the main trays if you have the same type paper being fed from the manual feed same size paper then it will automatically take it from the default trays
IF you take the paper out of the trays and put it only in the manual feed will it print and take it from the manual feed also you have to tell the machine when you use the manual feed what size and type of paper is in the manual feed once you tell it what paper and type of paper like card stock you then need to make sure when you go to print that it is set on your computer with manual feed and type of paper must match what is set on machine

Check the software provided or installed on your Computer you use for work(printing software), look for print properties, check for print settings, look for manual Feed, Under manual Feed, set it for letterheads, however this has to correspond with the Applications you are using to print letterheads out of( under print, into the preferrences you should be able to have the settings as well). If your printer software does have these settings, then you will have to do it Manually upon every print.

It won't print - says manual feed - load paper tray. Its a brand new printer (Brother HL-4040CDN) and the paper tray is full


The printer has an "alternate" feed, i.e., for envelopes and/or for special paper.

Open the door to access that "manual" tray, take some paper from the "normal" tray, and insert the paper into the "manual" tray.

Or, on the printer's controls, set the "standard" feed, rather than the "manual" feed, and press PRINT.

I keep getting the "our of paper" light and people cannot print, although there is paper in it. I have tried adjusting the paper in the tray, but same results.


That is the exact behavior the lights show when there's a manual feed print job trying to make it through the printer. Any chance you have a print queue active that has a hung job in it for the manual feed? Before throwing it away, at least put some paper in the 'multipurpose' tray to see if anything prints.
The manual suggests that all lights will stay on solid if service is needed, and since it will print startup pages, it shouldn't be the paper transport.

Your paper feed source is wrong .Go to the printers control panel and change the feed source.
If all you do is 8.5X11 you can go into the maintenance tab and choose it to automatically change paper trays by selectin auto continuous feed.Make sure paper is in both trays of the same type and size.You will hear the printer try and grab the paper three times then it will automatically switch to the next tray.
