Try loading paper in both trays. Tray '2' is supposed to be the bottom tray. It is a much larger tray than the top tray which sits underneath the duplexer.

IBM 4039 drivers also work for this model.

I have a T620 that won't print from the trays because it continues to show ''Load MP tray'' on the display. When I drop down the tray and load the multi-purpose feeder, it will print what's in the queue....


Turns out that the paper tray was damaged - the tray was unable to determine the correct paper size, despite fooling with the green paper stop. I had to compare it with a known-good tray to see the problem.

Urgent! MP Feeder problem - please help!


If your application is requiring the printer to select the manual paper feeder, you will get this problem. This feature is selected different ways in different application programs and different operating systems, but usually, after you select print, there will be a popup that allows you select the number of copies, portrait or landscape mode, etc. Either here, or in a secondary popup you reach by Print Properties or Advanced or some such button, there should be a paper source selection. Select Tray 1 instead of Manual Feed.

There is also a paper source selection available from the front panel. TO select Tray 1 instead of the manual paper feed:

Menu> - Select (Paper) - Select (Paper Source)
Use the Menu> key to select Tray 1
Select - Return - Return

Sometimes, for no apparent reason, my T614 loses its mind and wants to use the manual paper feed. I turn off the printer and turn it back on again to reset it... just like Windows! I could probably use the front panel to reset the printer, but it's easier to cycle the power.

I'm betting that answering your urgent question two months later didn't help you get your very important work completed on time. I hope you are still employed.

I need to reset the default settings on my Lexmark Optra S 1625


It sounds like they changed the Paper Type in the menu settings. I cannot remember 100% where it is on this model, but if you go through the menus, you should come across a Paper Menu option. In this menu, you need to change the Paper Type for Tray 1 to Plain Paper.

Our lexmark Optra T610 laser printer keeps telling me to "change tray one to plain paper"


verify paper tray is set for correct paper. print the configuration menu and check the paper size for tray 1. If it does not have right size, examine the tray bottom to see if slider is in place

Manual feed only


Pull out tray 1 & ensure the gray left-rear paper type clip is completely in the notched hole.

OPTRA T610 NOT PRINTING FROM TRAY1


What happens is that the rubber roller that's supposed to pick paper up and load it in doesn't pull the paper from the tray anymore, hence it gives the paper jam error message. If you want you can replace that rubber roller to fix the problem, however first thing I do is to take that rubber roller out (remove tray and look underneath to find the roller) and turn it inside out then fit it back. This will give the rubber roller the grip that it missed and solve your problem.

Paper source


I would suggest checking printer properties in the computer and ensure the paper size and source is Letter and set to Automatic Choose. Another choice may be to deleted the printer driver and re-install it. You can also go into the menu options until you get to Set factory defaults, press Select, then try the print job again.
I really suspect a program is controlling this from the computer.
To get a list of the existing printer settings, Select Menu and use the Right Arrow button until you get to Printer Menu Settings. The printed report should tell you what your actuall settings are. Maybe the default is set to Custom, instead of Letter.
The Set Factory Defaults option should fix most problems.
Good Luck John Moser
