Question about Lexmark C532dn Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have Lexmark C532dn printer which continues to reports "Insert Tray 1". Until now it was enough to little press tray 1 to start print. But now it beeps all the time and little pressing is not enough. Can't figure out where is that microswitch or contact which is pressed by tray so that printer can register that tray1 is inside. Can be that fixed by me or should I send to service. I prefer first option rather than second because it takes too long for repair.

    Try to remove the paper tray from the printer, then reinstall after 30 seconds. You can also try a different tray from a similar printer, if you have one, to determine a possible tray issue. If problem continues, it's more likely a paper pick assembly issue (which includes the sensor). This would require a service call.

SOURCE: Lexmark E232 - Tray-1 Paper Problem

Have the same problem after 1,500 pages! This was Lexmark's solution (and it worked)...

Take the paperfeed tray out and you will see a red lever , press it
downwards and you will see the paperfeed rollers coming down , you need to
pull the rubber tyres off those rollers and place them inside out over
them and then try printing any document. Check the paper weight and
the paper type you need to use 20 pounds regular paper and try runnning a
can of compressed air inside the machine.
If rubber tyres on the paper feed rollers are totally worned out you
need to replace the feed rollers.

Just take ruber band out and flip it. And put it back, It works. Main reason is rubber is dried. Frugalguy's suggestion worked for me. Thanks.

SOURCE: Somebody has messed with the settings and now whenever we print we have to press "Select" for each page

The tray 1 is same as manual tray, it opens in front of you.
normally (in windows) you need to configure printer driver from printers => properties => printing preferences.

The printer recognizes tray 2 but it will not print to tray 2.


The printer will not print from any tray if tray one is pulled out. the paper path from any other tray still goes through tray 1\'s feed path (little slit in the front of the tray). if tray one is not in the printer it will not pull from any other lower tray.

Trey 1 is giving a message out of paper when they is paper inside


The message "No Paper" will appear on the LCD display if the Brother machine does not detect paper in the paper tray(Tray#1 or Tray#2) or MP(Multi-purpose) Tray.

Resetting the Brother machine may resolve this issue. To reset the machine, unplug the power cord from the AC power outlet for approximately 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

Note

For MFC users :
The Brother machine can be powered OFF for up to 4 days without losing faxes in memory.

If the message "No Paper" continues to appear on the display follow the instructions listed below:

When printing from Tray#1 or Tray#2 :

Pull the paper tray completely out of the machine. Go to STEP2.

When printing from MP Tray :

Go to STEP4.

Note Tray #2 is the optional LT-5300 paper tray.The MP Tray is just above the main paper tray and can be accessed by opening the MP Tray door. To open, pull on either the left or right side of the front door by the circular cut out.

2. While pressing the blue paper-guide release lever, slide the paper guides to fit the paper size. If the back of the paper tray doesn't move, the tray lock button may be in the lock position; slide the lock button to the unlock position and pull out the back of the paper tray again. With the paper removed, you will see the LTR (letter) marking on the plastic plate on the bottom of the paper tray to indicate where the moveable rear guide (with protruding arrow) should be moved to for letter size paper. There is also a marking for legal size paper. Make sure the guides are set at the correct mark. Reload the paper in the paper tray. Make sure the moveable rear guide does NOT push tightly against the paper. It should be adjusted to the LTR (letter) or LGL (legal) position, depending on your paper size. If the moveable rear guide is pushed too tightly against the rear edge of the paper, the paper will get stuck in the tray and a loud plastic snapping noise may be heard when feeding paper.

3. Move the tray lock button to the lock position (slide the button towards the paper).

4. If there is no paper in the tray, reload the paper.

When printing from Tray#1 or Tray#2 :

The tray can hold up to 250 sheets of 20lb paper. Do not overfill the tray. There is a maximum paper mark located on the top of the right and left paper guide. It looks like a V cut out in the plastic.

Note

If you are using special paper and the machine has problems feeding it from the paper tray, try the paper again using the manual feed tray. Make sure you insert the paper far enough --about 1 inch- under the gray plastic bar in the MP Tray until it stops or it will not be fed and the machine will display the message "No Paper".


5. Verify the correct size and type paper is being used:
When printing from Tray#1 or Tray#2 :


If you are printing from a PC and using the paper tray, make sure that MP Tray is NOT selected in the application's print properties for Paper Source.

When printing from MP Tray :

If you are printing from a PC make sure that the MP Tray is selected in the application's print properties for Paper Source.

Note: Please be aware that the setting in the printer driver will take priority over the setting made on the control panel.

14. If you have set the Tray Use settings for a particular tray, the machine will feed paper only from that tray. If the selected tray is out of paper, a "No Paper" message will appear on the LCD. You need to reload paper in that tray.
To set the Tray Use setting, follow the steps below:

a. Press Menu.

b. Press the up or down arrow key to select General Setup.

c. Press OK.

d. Press the up or down arrow key to select Tray Use.

e. Press OK.

f. Press the up or down arrow key to select the mode you want to use.
You can select Copy, Print or Fax(MFC users only).

g. Press OK.

h. Press the up or down arrow key to select the tray.
You can select Tray#1 Only, Tray#2 Only or MP Tray Only.

i. Press OK.

15. For MFC users :

To test, print the Help List.

. Press Menu.

a. Press the up or down arrow key to select Print Reports, and press OK.

b. Press the up or down arrow key to select Help List, and press OK.

c.Press Start.

For DCP users :

To test, print the User Settings.

d. Press Menu.

e. Press the up or down arrow key to select General Setup, and press OK.

f. Press the up or down arrow key to select User Settings, and press OK.

g. Press Start.

Note

If the problem still continues after following the above instructions,

I recommend you clean the Separation Roller, Pickup Roller and Separation pad following the instructions of the FAQ: My Brother machine mis-feeds paper.

Lexmark T632 has 2 (ea) 500 sheet drawers, but once the paper runs out in Drawer 1 it will not automatically pull from Drawer 2. Please advise how to fix this problem.


go to Menu, reports, and print out the top report.

This will show you what the printer sees as the default tray, and what paper size and type are set for each tray.

If you have plain paper in each tray, make sure that the setting page also shows that each tray is set to letter, plain.

This printer sets the tray type automatically, based on the way the tray is set. There are little tabs on the side of the tray that change as you change the size of the paper with the paper guides.

If the paper guide is set even one click off, this can cause the printer to read the paper size incorrectly, and thus will not change to the next tray. ( if it thinks that tray 2 is A4 paper, but you are printing letter, it will not change to tray 2).

if the trays ARE set correctly, but the printer is still reading it wrong, then there could be something wrong with the sensor ( metal fingers and switch ) inside the printer.

Paper does not feed from Tray 1.


Check your printer settings.

Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing

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
