Manual feed only

Will only allow to print as manual feed. Have tried to program it to feed from tray and nothing seems to work, it always defaults back to manual feed.

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

It sounds like your paper selection for the tray is set to the wrong size. The easiest way to find out is to go to the utilities menu on the printer menu and print a configuration page. You can verify the tray settings from the report. If you need repair info, hit google and search for a manual on a LEXMARK OPTRA T630. Your Dell 5200 is actually a Lexmark Optra T630 clone. Basically Lexmark put gray covers on it and changed and eprom on the motherboard so that it will say "I'm a Dell". Hope that helps you.

Mfc 7860dw will not print from paper tray


Check the paper level in tray 1 and keep the paper within the levels indicated by the arrows on the side. I had this same problem, and although the paper tray accommodates the extra paper, the printer obviously does not like it and defaults to the manual feed.

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.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

Epson R300 CD/DVD Tray ERROR message with Leopard any Solutions?


One of the guys on this site said read the manual over and over again, and he was right.
You must go to system preferences and choose print and fax. Set the default media to A4. Then in the Print CD program when you hit print your will see fifth line down Epson Print CD on offer. Hit the arrows on the right and choose print settings from the drop down menu and then media type and choose CD / DVD. All should then work. It does on mine.
Regards and best wishes. David
