The mx2300n only supports up to 209gsm heavy card. You must make sure that your heavy card is not over this rating. Set the bypass tray as 'Heavy' by clicking on the trays on the main copy mode screen, select type & size for bypass. Select heavy, and Auto AB as this will allow the tray guides to detect the size of your paper. Load the tray with up to 20 sheets of Heavy paper. Open your document, select Print, then properties. Under the 'paper' tab, select paper source as bypass tray, and paper type as heavy (if you miss one of these steps, the ,machine will ask to load paper due to size or type mismatch). That's pretty much it.
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)
Your paper feed source is wrong .Go to the printers control panel and change the feed source.
If all you do is 8.5X11 you can go into the maintenance tab and choose it to automatically change paper trays by selectin auto continuous feed.Make sure paper is in both trays of the same type and size.You will hear the printer try and grab the paper three times then it will automatically switch to the next tray.
For tray linking to work, both Paper Size AND Paper type must be configured the same for both trays. You probably have the paper sizes the same but types could be different. The is no setting to make tray linking work.. it will do it automatically if the above settings are correct.
I m not sure what the specification of the paper type you are using however if you are using card stock than you should use manual feed Tray and in the printer driver properties you should select paper type as Card-Stock to make sure there is no print quality issue.
1-try both sides of the card stock
2-try the manual by-pass and see it that works
if it works then there could be a problem witht the main board
when you change the setting it changes :the temperature, the pressure on the rollers, and a few other thins, because of the wieght of the paper.
