Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer
The paper trays are not properly installed. Turn off the printer, take the trays out and set them in the proper configuration again. Start the printer and the message should be gone. If it isn't then you must reset the printer manually:
Turn on the printer while holding down up and down buttons .
1 - The Customer Mode menu appears.
2 - Press Menu.
3 - Press down until Configure appears, and then press select .
4 - Press down until Maintenance appears, and then press select .
Press down until Init NVRAM appears, and then press select .
5 - The Init NVRAM Are you sure? message appears on the operator panel. Press select .
6 - Turn off the printer, and then on again.
If even now the problem is there then the sensors that monitor the tray are out of alignment. To realign them you must open the case. If you haven't done that before and this is your only printer (you cannot mess with it since you don't have a replacement) then you should call a repairman.
