Question about Lexmark T630 Laser Printer

1 Answer

My Lexmark T650n has an issue with printing from the MP Feeder. If the feeder runs out of paper, it wants to send the rest of the order to Tray 1. I would like it to pause and wait until I add more paper to the MP Feeder. What settings do I need to do in order for this to work? I tried setting the Configure MP to First and Default Source to Tray 1 (as I do send print jobs to the tray when the tray is closed).

Someplace in the machine settings there is a setting labeled linking trays turn that off and your problem should be corrected.

SOURCE: Load MP Feeder

That is not an error message. it is telling you to load the Manual Paper feeder. Put some papaer in it and it will print. check youyr set up to make sure that you are printing to the trays not the manual feeder

SOURCE: 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

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.

SOURCE: Our printer says load MP feeder. We can't get it to print. Please

The front of the printer is a door that opens this is the MP feeder. Load paper in it and the unit should print. Someone likely sent a job requesting that tray.

Message window shows "load mp


The printer tells you to insert a letter format paper in the mp (multi purpose) feeder (the manual tray).
If you press the GO key the print probably proceeds with print job (if has the paper loaded in mp feeder)

You have send a print job from your application (ex. word), and the paper format in this appl. is letter. The printer tells you to insert a letter format paper in the mp (multi purpose) feeder (upper the tray).
If you press the GO key the print probably proceeds with print job (if has the paper load in mp feeder)

How do I have printer switch from empty paper tray 1 to the full 550 paper tray 2


Hi. You need to do tray linking. When one linked tray is empty, paper feeds from the next linked tray. The size and type settings for all trays must be set from the Paper Menu. To set the paper type or size:
1. On the home screen, touch Menu button
2. Touch Paper Menu
3. Touch Paper Size/Type.
Note: To link the multipurpose feeder, Configure MP must be set to Cassette in order for MP Feeder Size or MP
Feeder Type to appear as a menu item.
4. Touch the right or left arrows to select the same size paper from all paper sources to be linked.
5. Touch the right or left arrows to select the same type paper from all paper sources to be linked.
Note: When the Size and Type settings are the same for any trays, the trays are automatically linked.
6. Touch Submit.
Submitting changes appears.
7. Touch Home to return to the home screen.
Hope this helps.

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.

Lexmark t642 load mp feeder with letter


The reason that your printer is asking you to load paper into the MPF is that it doesn't think it has that size paper in tray 1 or 2. Make sure that the green paper guide in the paper tray that you want to print from is latched in the correct position. This guide tells the printer what size paper is in the tray. If you have it even slightly out of position you'll get this message.

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...
