I have just figured it out!!! You of course know to lift the cover......inside there is a slider to match the size of paper that you are using. I am using glossy photo paper 4 x 6. Glossy side up on the right side of the divider......and press print!!! Not explained anywhere in the instructions......this was after much trial and tribulation.

I dont know where to put the papper in

I hope I can help!

Basically, you are going to load the paper in the very bottom tray. If you fold down the frontal tray, there should be enough space for a good stack of paper (but don't overload it!). You just put the paper in the bottom tray, and then it will feed through there and come out the tray just above it when it prints. If you need any more specific instructions, I will post a link to the HP manual on this printer. Just click on "load originals and paper" on the left, and then "load paper" and it has some good instructions with pictures. If you need any more help, just comment!

I hope that helps!

Fax output error

Pretty sure your paper tray button is set to get paper from the bottom paper cassette which is the tray that slides into the bottom of the printer.

If you switch the paper tray selection button* to use the rear feed tray you'll probably find it will print faxes sucessfully or you can put paper in the cassette tray...

*The paper tray selection button is just under (and slightly right of) the "Memory Card" button and has an icon image of the printer with two LED's (top and bottom). These lights indicate which of the trays is currently selected...

Hope that helps.

I cant find my manual how to i place the paper underneath so it feeds through the bottom

You can use the paper cassette located at the bottom of the printer, on the front when the output paper tray is closed concealing the paper feed switch, the usb port and the cassette lamp.
1 Gently pull out the cassette from the printer.
2. Remove the cover from the cassette.
3. Place your paper in the cassette tray.
a. when using A5 or larger sized paper (non standard sized paper, pinch the tab and extend the cassette if needed.
b. legal sized paper is not loadable in the cassette
4. Do not load paper above the load limit mar4k.
5. Make sure the print side of the paper is facing down.
6. Align the paper stack against the right side of the cassette
7. Slide the paper guides so they fit the loaded paper stack.
8. The paper cassette will hold up to 150 sheets of plain paper, however you do not eant to stack any more than 50 sheets in the Paper Output Tray.
9. Reinsert the cassette into the printer. Then set the cover on the cassette. Now make sure the cassette is pushed al the way into the printer. (If long paper was used and the cassette was extended iy will now extend beyond the front of the printer
10. Prepare the paper output tray by opening the front cover and pulling out the tray extension until extended completely.
11. Press the paper feed switch so the cassette lamp lights.

You can slo select the paper source with the printer driver if you prefer .

I do not know where to put paper into the loading tray. dont know where the loading tray is... help!!

You either open the flap in the back and stand the paper up in the slot or you pull out the drawer underneath the front and load paper in that cassette. You also have to select which one you are using with the feed switch.

How do you load an envelope in the printer?

Hi, Please follow these steps to load :-
1.Turn on your printer. Make sure it is in ready mode (green status light on) and it is not printing or running any other operations.
  1. 2.Determine whether your printer uses a top-feed or bottom-feed. Blank paper stands upright in a top-feeding printer and lays in a tray on a bottom-feeding printer.
    3.Load your envelope in portrait mode for envelopes that are 8.5 inches wide (standard paper size). Fold the flap down and place the envelope with the side to be printed on facing you. Load the envelope so that the side with the flap enters the printer first.
    4.Load your envelope in landscape mode for longer envelopes that cannot fit in lengthwise. Close the flap. Load the envelope so that the left side enters the printer first (the flap will be on your left).
    5.Set the paper guides. This guide is the sliding piece on your feed tray (it will usually be on the left). Slide it over so that the paper is held straight when it enters the printer.
    6.Set up your printing preferences. Go to "File > Page Setup" or access your printer’s properties page. Under orientation, select portrait or landscape mode depending on how you loaded your envelopes. If your printer has this option, select “Left” for bottom-feeding printers and "Right” for top-feeding printers
    7.Take a look at the "Print Preview" (usually found under "File" menu) and make sure everything looks good. Then print.
  2. Thanks!

What is the correct way to load the paper.i cant get it to feed

On the Selphy printers you put the paper on the front tray just up to the rollers. When you print the paper is drawn in toward the rear, and then prints on the way back out to the front tray.

Dell 3000cn keep getting load mpf when i try to print but there is paper in the tray. how do I get it to recognize the paper. I've changed nothing on the computer but this just started to happen! please...

I have a Dell 3010n myself, and a few times I did run into that "Load MPF" issue.
1.) Before printing a document, please check and see the properties. i.e. Kind/type of paper, which tray, or if printing envelopes or any other document than a regular 8 x11 paper. Putting all the tray and paper type selection on "Auto" can be very helpful.
2.) On the printer itself, there is a menu button where you can configure the type of paper, i.e. regular 20 llb. copy/print paper, glossy photopaper, thicker paper - after you place a fresh load on the paper tray and slide it in, usually it will ask you which type of paper you just loaded. Make sure it is the same settings as the document that you are trying to print: i.e. if document settings on computer was set to print on photopaper and you have regular paper on the tray, the printer will do a "Load MPF".
The paper sensor on it is amazingly (for a Dell, that is) sensitive and it can differentiate across a lot of paper types/thickness. If you have several computers and user across a network, and there are several paper-type settings done on the printer itself, this "Load MPF" issue will present itself more often.
In my case, it's simply because the person who recently changed the paper-type to glossy cover paper from some user who previously printed to a transparency forgot to revert MPF/Tray 1 to regular copy/print paper. Most cases, the printer setting on the PC has been left to print on to a transparency by default, so even if I stack the tray with copy paper to the hilt, it still will do "Load MPF".
