Question about Lexmark Optra S 1625 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper source I have a lexmark optra s1625 that pulls paper from the manual feeder tray (fold-out tray) even though I have the paper source set for tray 1 and the feeder tray is closed. Some print jobs will pull paper from tray 1(rarely), but when it pulls from manual and the tray is empty or closed, it will beep and flash *load mp feeder* until I put paper in the manual feed tray. How can I get it to always pull paper from tray 1?

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.

Lexmark t614 manual feed how it works


  1. Push the lower release latch. The multipurpose feeder door drops open.
  2. Pull out the metal bar in the recessed area on the multipurpose feeder, far enough to accommodate the paper you will be using.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the far right.
  4. Prepare the print material for loading:


      • Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
      • Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.
      • Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent jams.
      • Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the transparencies.

  5. Use the stack height limiter as a guide for stack height when loading print materials.
  6. Load one type of print material in the multipurpose feeder. Do not mix types.
  7. Slide the paper width guide over until it fits snugly against the side of the print material.

How I can reset the password of the device in a Lexmark s1625


According to the user manual (www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/optras/enUser.pdf), password security and other features are controlled through the MarkVision utility software, which is installed on a computer that can communicate with the printer.

Hope this helps!

What does load mp feeder letter mean? There is paper in the printer why is the printer not prinint


load mp feeder means To load the Manual Paper Feeder
You might have selected the printer settings for manual feeding. Hence you need to feed that papers in manual feeding tray.
You can change the settings to automatic paper feeding to get rid of this error.

Lexmark T642 - I have plain white paper in tray 1 and yellow plain paper in the mp feeder tray. When I choose to print to the mp feeder tray the printer beeps to be loaded with paper but the paper is...


Make sure you have selected the multi purpose feeder (front of the printer) in the driver, not the Manual Feeder.

The manual feeder will prompt for paper on each page. All you have to do is to press the "Go" button.

Urgent! MP Feeder problem - please help!


If your application is requiring the printer to select the manual paper feeder, you will get this problem. This feature is selected different ways in different application programs and different operating systems, but usually, after you select print, there will be a popup that allows you select the number of copies, portrait or landscape mode, etc. Either here, or in a secondary popup you reach by Print Properties or Advanced or some such button, there should be a paper source selection. Select Tray 1 instead of Manual Feed.

There is also a paper source selection available from the front panel. TO select Tray 1 instead of the manual paper feed:

Menu> - Select (Paper) - Select (Paper Source)
Use the Menu> key to select Tray 1
Select - Return - Return

Sometimes, for no apparent reason, my T614 loses its mind and wants to use the manual paper feed. I turn off the printer and turn it back on again to reset it... just like Windows! I could probably use the front panel to reset the printer, but it's easier to cycle the power.

I'm betting that answering your urgent question two months later didn't help you get your very important work completed on time. I hope you are still employed.

Manual feed only


Pull out tray 1 & ensure the gray left-rear paper type clip is completely in the notched hole.

Paper tray selection


Go to Paper Menu > Paper Size > Tray 1 - note what the Auto setting states (Letter, A4, Legal, etc.) Pull the tray out to set what it is configured for. Then reinsert it & pull it out a few times, noting what the display show the Auto size show. It should match the tray's settings.

If the Display indicates otherwise, it means one of two things:

1) The "auto size sensing" board on the left may be defective. The left side of the tray has a matrix of 3 plastic tabs that stick out in certain order depending on the tray setting. If this board fails, it may show Executive or A4 when the tray is set for letter.

2) The tray may be in-between two settings. Try to readjust the tray length setting between sizes. (You will notice the plastic tabs will change order.) The last time you loaded paper it may have pushed it just enough so that it is no longer seen as letter by the auto sensing board.

I hope this helps...
