How do i load paper in the MPF


The front of you printer should open so you can access the MPF (Manual Paper Feed) tray. The MPF is usually tray No. 1 on most laser printers.

Dell Laser Printer 5100cn Load MPF Letter Plain 1 !


Are you trying to use the "MPF" (Manual Paper Feed) tray?

If you are then the manual paper feed tray is usually a fold down flap at the back of the printer. It only accepts on piece of paper at a time.

However, if you are just trying to print to the printer's default tray, then you need to check both the "Page Setup" in the application and the printer driver properties to make sure that you are calling the correct paper tray.

What does load mpf mean


It does stand for Manual Paper Feed.
On this printer, that's on the front of the unit, above the paper trays.

Once your PC has sent a print job with the paper-select set to "Manual Paper Feed" the printer will not do anything until it's processed this job.
The easiest way to do this is to put paper into the MPF and let it print, but at some point you're going to want to fix your PC so it doesn't send MPF print jobs anymore.

To do this, open your Printer Properties and select the default paper tray instead of the Manual Feed.

Mpf error


MPF is refering to Manual Paper Feed or bypass tray. This tray should fold down to enable loading of paper. It is mostlikely above tray 1.

Dell 5100cn won't recognize mpf tray


Go to the printer web page by entering the IP address of the printer in an Internet Browser.
click Printer Settings menu entry
If the Substitute Tray value is not MPF Feed, click on the Printer Settings tab
Set the Substitute Tray value to MPF Feed
Click the button Apply New Settings, it will request the admin id & password for the printer.

In trying to resolve this issue, initially I set the Tray Settings to Panel Specified from Driver Specified at the printer's panel. Since the issue was resolved with this set, I just left it that way.

Printing Labels


The MPF is simply the "Manual Paper Feed".
Your printer is set by default that the MPF paper type is "plain paper". Since you are telling the printer that you are trying to print lables, the printer is simply telling you that you need to load the MPF with lables.

If you say "ok", the printer sould continue and print the lables.

If you only print lables, the you can change the default paper for the MPF tray to "lables", and then you will no longer be prompted to load the tray.

Ok,

I've went around and around with the same problem (bug) and finally found a solution. Here is the deal. You have to exactly match the settings for the MPF tray in the aplication softwares to the MPF tray settings set from front panel on the printer.

I found this problem when trying to print on gloss paper. The MPF tray had to be set for "Coated 1 Side 2" in both the application and on the front of the printer.

Lets say I'm printing a Word Document. Go to file, print, select the Dell printer, then select properties, select paper tray, set paper source to MPF, set MPF settings to ""Coated 1 Side 2". Click OK.

Now do the printer setup. From the front panel on the printer.
Press Menu, press the down button to Tray Settings
Press center button to select.
Display now asks for paper type. Press center button.
Displays MPF. Press center button.
Push down button until you see Coat1 Side2
Push center button to select.
Press Menu to exit.

I only print on gloss so I have to set the MPF tray to Coated 1 Side 2. I was told this slows the feed and that is needed for coated papers. Now you could probably use another setting as long you set both the MPF tray in both the application and the control panel to match exactly.

Dell printer 3100 cn laser


I had the dreaded 024-969 and was just able to print a test page.

I removed paper and reached inside the MPF. There's a spring-loaded lever facing upward, toward the back of the tray that the paper rests on and depresses. I toggled this up and down a dozen times.

I vacuumed out the entire tray area and then blew air into the same area by reversing the shop vac hose connection to the output hole.

Printer now prints.

This is usually related to the way the tray or trays are configured on the printer or the way the program from which your printing from is configured. If you are using ms office, as an example, if the instructions to the printer from the software (ms office) say to print this document to the Multi Purpose Feeder tray (MPF) using plain paper and there is no plain paper in the MPF, you will get this error. Conversersly, if the printer's MPF is configured to print only legal size paper, and the software you are using is sending a print job to the printer telling it to use letter in the MPF, you will get this error. Basically, the printer settings and the settings from the software must match in order for this error to not occur. The settings for the printer can be changed usinig the operators panel of the printer. Directions for this should be available in the users manual or from support.dell.com. The setings for the software shold be in the print properties/preferences of the software being used.
