"MP" means "Manual Paper" Tray. Is paper in the manual paper tray or the main 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.

Problems printing to Brother MFC 8660DN printer


Pull the paper tray, likley a small black lever to the left of the roller called the edge actuator is dislodged and hanging down. When in position the actuator should easily push up and appear flat next to the roller.
