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.

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
