This is a request for paper, and since there is no tray designation I assume you only have 1 paper tray. B5 is an uncommon paper size though, so if you are using normal letter sized paper you should select preferences nest to the printer name after you select print and change the paper size unless you are using B5 size paper. So load paper into the availiable tray and you should be good to go.

Where do I load paper in a Kyocera FS-C5350DN Full-Color Laser Printer


At the bottom of the printer you will find the paper cassette. Pull the handle and the cassette will slide out. Eventualy you will need to ajust the size of the paper.

The printer says Load MP feeder B5. how can I fix this.


Several options here:

1st - cancel any documents in the print queue. and print off a report of some kind via the menu button on the machine. if that prints correctly then it either a software/ print driver setting issue.

2nd - If that prints out correctly open up a text pad/ notepad and attempt to print that if the message pops up it's very possible the paper handling has been miss-configured within the print driver.
Now if the document does print out fine, the original document you were attempting to print is set to a B5 paper size. If that's the case pending on what program you are using you will have to change the paper size to you choice of paper your using.

3rd - open up the paper tray and confirm it's set to letter or legal pending what type of paper you have in the tray(not the manual feed tray). I highly doubt it's the tray however as B5 setting would not allow any type of normal paper to be loaded.

4th - on the machine hit the menu button -> paper menu -> confirm that the paper type/ size and source are configured correctly.

Lexmark e352dn-load manual plain letter message


In most cases if the printer is asking for an unexpected manual feed it is because the paper tray is not set to the right paper size or type. To set the paper size to the most common size and type (letter size plain paper) use the following instructions.

1. Press the Menu button.
2. Press the right arrow key until Paper Menu then press Check Mark.
3. Press the right arrow key until Size/Type then press Check Mark.
4. Press the right arrow key until Tray 1 then press Check Mark.
5. Press the right or left arrow key until Letter then press Check Mark.
6. Press the right or left arrow key until Plain then press Check Mark.
7. Press the back button until Ready is displayed.

This will set up your printer tray for plain letter paper and should relieve the manual feed error unless yourcomputer is sending other paper size/type settings.

Prints 2 pages and says to load paper


Somehow after adding paper you changed the paper size to B5. Change it back to Letter and it should resolve your problems

Not printing black


To align the printer from the control panel

1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press Setup.
The Setup menu appears.
3. Press to highlight Tools, and press OK.
The Tools menu appears.
4. Press to highlight Align Printer, and press OK.
5. The HP All-in-One prints a test page, aligns the print head, and calibrates the printer.

Recycle or discard the page.

A success or failure message appears.

Note If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the printer, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or ink
cartridge.

6. Press OK to continue.
7. Recycle or discard the page.

I have problems printing from my computer to my printer - Printer Error Message


It sounds like the default tray it's expecting to pull paper from is out of paper.  Make sure the trays have paper, and that it isn't jammed.

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back
