Re: loading the paper
Check the paper settings on your word processor. Most probably you picked either a paper type or paper size that is not plain, letter sized paper. That is why the word processor sends the job to the manual tray.

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)
load mp feeder means To load the Manual Paper Feeder
You might have selected the printer settings for manual feeding. Hence you need to feed that papers in manual feeding tray.
You can change the settings to automatic paper feeding to get rid of this error.
Dont know what you have already tried but first off verify that you are loading paper to the correct tray. Now this tray is going to have a switch located toward the feeder that tells the printer paper is loaded make sure the paper is back far enough but not to the point where you are forcing the paper into the feeder. If all this still doesnt work try reseting the printer and printing a test page. Hope this helps.
I received this message when I was trying to print a pdf file. I attempted messing with the positioning of green paper guide to no avail. My co-worker suggested I uncheck the Choose paper source by PDF page size box on the Print pop-up box. This did the trick.
if you are gettiing a 201 error without any paper in the printer you will need change the main motor drive if it fails to initialize this is the error that will show up and there is no other way to reset it
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
This usually happens when the paper tray is set to the incorrect paper size.
This printer determines what size paper is installed in it by the little "fingers" on the left side of the tray. When you adjust the paper tray, it determines how those fingers are positioned, and therefore, how the switch reads the paper size.
If the tray setting is off, even by one little click, then the machine may read the paper size as other then letter. If this happens, you send a letter size job to the printer, and it doesnt think it has letter size paper, it will tell you to put letter paper in the MPF feeder.
If the tray is definately set to letter, but the machine still thinks it does not have letter, then the tray or the switch that reads the tray is defective, but 99% of the time it is just the tray is not set correctly.
The MPF door can be open or closed 100% of the time with NO EFFECT on how the printer works.
Table 3-7. Paper Handling Menu Item Values Explanation ENVELOPE FEEDER SIZE=COM10 For supported paper sizes see page 1-12. This item appears only when the optional envelope feeder is installed. Set the value to correspond with the envelope size currently loaded in the envelope feeder. ENVELOPE FEEDER TYPE=PLAIN For supported paper types see page 1-12. This item appears only when the optional envelope feeder is installed. Set the value to correspond with the envelope type currently loaded in the envelope feeder. TRAY 1 MODE= FIRST FIRST CASSETTE Determine how the printer will use Tray 1. FIRST: If paper is loaded in Tray 1, the printer will pull paper from that tray first. CASSETTE: A paper size must be assigned to Tray 1 using the TRAY 1 SIZE option (the next item in this menu when TRAY 1 MODE=CASSETTE). This allows Tray 1 to be used as a reserved tray. TRAY 1 SIZE= LETTER For supported paper sizes see page 1-12. This item appears only when TRAY 1 MODE= CASSETTE. Set the value to correspond with the paper size currently
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.
