Ever time I try to print anything, I get a message saying the printer is out of paper. But it's not out of paper! There is plenty of paper in the tray, which I keep reloading, only to get the same...


Cause
Any of the following issues can cause this issue:
The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
The paper is curled.
The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the tray face down. For photo paper, always load the rougher side of the paper facing up.
The paper is too slick for the product.
The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers.
The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product.
The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
The rubber paper-feed rollers are dusty.

b)If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, wrinkled, or bent. If the paper is curled, uncurl the paper by gently bending it in the opposite direction of the curl or replace the paper.

c)Verify that all the paper is the same size and type.

d)Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges

e)Verify that the stack of paper to be loaded in the unit contains between 10 and 25 sheets of paper.

f)Insert the stack of paper into the printer and then gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper.

g)Adjust the paper settings in the print driver. The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.

Load A4


A4 is for european size, if you are printing on a letter size this is a mismatched.
you need to change your files printer properties to A4 or letter size, or change your printer paper size.
better yet cancel this document and send it again , this time by checking the printer properties was set to your desired paper size

Paper size is incorrectly set!.....

Merlin's idea, of what paper Lex has, and Lex's are different or you have loaded Lex's tray with the paper sideways

Your in Oz so it would be A4 standard and I guess your trying to print B5 script. Try these

The printer has been loaded with one size paper but thinks it is another. change printer settings via keypad on printer

The B5 scripts paper is being loaded sideways instead of length ways or visa verse

There is a incorrect setting in the printer driver that is set up for this specific printer that 'merlin' uses, check print driver setting (control panel,printers and fax, right click on lexmarkt642's icon, properties and check properties fully) in windows software that is running under merlin, also check merlin settings if any for this printer
