Question about Dell 3000cn Color Laser Printer
Display says load MPF paper, and yellow caution light is on. However it has plenty of paper and when you press the cancel button it cycles ready to print. Of course when you try to print it will not pick up the paper and returns to previous issue. It printed two papers and then started this. This is the first problem I have had with it in over a years time.
I've went around and around with the same problem (bug) and finally found a solution. Here is the deal. You have to exactly match the settings for the MPF tray in the aplication softwares to the MPF tray settings set from front panel on the printer.
I found this problem when trying to print on gloss paper. The MPF tray had to be set for "Coated 1 Side 2" in both the application and on the front of the printer.
Lets say I'm printing a Word Document. Go to file, print, select the Dell printer, then select properties, select paper tray, set paper source to MPF, set MPF settings to ""Coated 1 Side 2". Click OK.
Now do the printer setup. From the front panel on the printer.
Press Menu, press the down button to Tray Settings
Press center button to select.
Display now asks for paper type. Press center button.
Displays MPF. Press center button.
Push down button until you see Coat1 Side2
Push center button to select.
Press Menu to exit.
I only print on gloss so I have to set the MPF tray to Coated 1 Side 2. I was told this slows the feed and that is needed for coated papers. Now you could probably use another setting as long you set both the MPF tray in both the application and the control panel to match exactly.
