SOURCE: Paper Jam feeder

Step1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Step
2
Turn off the printer. 
Step
3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Step
4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
Step
5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
Step
6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 
Step
7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Step
8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
Step
9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

SOURCE: my lexmark t520 says "load mp feeder letter"

Easy one. Open your tray back up and make sure that the paper settings are reflecting the type of paper that is in the tray. The times that I have seen the issue that you just described, the paper setting were off... thus causing this issue.

If that does not work. Powercycle printer. When it comes ready go to the Paper Menu, then to Default Paper source. Make sure that setting reflects the tray that you would like the printer to print from.

Hope that helps.

My printer says load paper then press start, I have paper in there and it wont print.


Dont know what you have already tried but first off verify that you are loading paper to the correct tray. Now this tray is going to have a switch located toward the feeder that tells the printer paper is loaded make sure the paper is back far enough but not to the point where you are forcing the paper into the feeder. If all this still doesnt work try reseting the printer and printing a test page. Hope this helps.

I keep getting a Load MP Feeder Letter message. I can't clear what to do?


MP Feeder refers to Multi Purpose Feeder or Manual Paper Feeder or just plain bypass feeder. There should be a door that folds down to gain access to your MP Feeder tray. Try loading letter size paper on this tray.

Paper feeder not working properly


did you load your papers the right way? Look on your paper tray. There should be a few snaps right on the sides of your paper tray. Make sure you use those snaps to keep your papers confined in your paper tray

Bulk feeder keeps jamming


It might be the tray Feeder not placed properly or the printer needs a service if not done in the last six months. Contact to your nearby Repair shop and Service centre.

Saying paper jam dcp-135c brother printer


 Hello there,If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed: Press the power button to turn the printer off. 
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer. 
Close the front cover. 
Press the power button to turn the printer back on. 
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that: 
The paper is a recommended paper for Laser printers. 
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder. 
The printer is on a flat, level surface. 
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper. 
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper. 
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder. 
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes. 
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver. 
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.
do not forget to rate this solution....good luck

Loading paper from top.


there is a button to press to swap it from the back tray and the bottom tray. it sounds like you might have some thing stuck in the rear feeder causing the paper not to go through. i would try it from the bottom feeder and see if it works,

might be worth turning the machine off and unplug it and then try turning it upside down and shaking the machine, to see if anything come out of it.

If not i would say to take it apart or call a service engineer out.


Hope this helps
