SOURCE: Paper Tray Settings

You have Auto Tray Switching acticated (ATS). Unless you specify each tray/paper with different settings it will switch.

Go in to the utility menu and you can find this in the paper tray settings area I believe.

You can turn this off completely to avoid this in the future.

If you look around you can even just tweak the settings for this, but in your case i would just shut it off.

SOURCE: Dell 3100cn Printer will not print

I had to actually change the settings in Microsoft Word to resolve this problem.

If you go to page setup > paper source > there should be lists for "first page" and "other pages".

You can set this to "as per printer settings" and hopefully it should work.

Using the printer panel; you need to change tray paper size from a4 to letter or the size you are using to print on.

SOURCE: WHEN PRINTING - THE PRINTER SAYS TRAY 1 LOAD PLAIN

You have the settinigs on the printer wrong. There are two things you need to do:
1. Open the tray and check that the paper guides are set to 8.5 x 11 (letter). There are both length and width guides in the paper tray, and EXEC size is quite a bit off from letter-it is more than 0.5 inch narrower than letter. It is also shorter than letter.
2. On the printer, use the settings button to navigate to the paper size. (The exact wording may vary; it's been a while since I worked on a 4050. It may be under print settings.) Once you find the paper size menu, configure tray 2-yes, I'm sure-to use letter size, any type. By the way, on HP lasers, tray 1 is the fold down tray on the front, tray 2 is the tray that will hold 500 sheets of paper and is the "drawer" that you load. Don't ask me why they use that numbering system.

SOURCE: prints 2 pages and says to load paper

Somehow after adding paper you changed the paper size to B5. Change it back to Letter and it should resolve your problems

Lexmark E460dn paper stuck


If the paper is stuck on the fuse, I am assuming you mean the fuser. You will probably have to replace the fuser. You can remove the fuser and try to remove the paper and then reinstall the fuser. Could be a sticky sensor as well.

What is the problem when the display keeps on showing Tray 1 load ltr on Lexmark c500


Load ltr means to load letter size paper. If its saying try 1 load ltr - its saying that you are out of letter size paper in tray number one of your printer.

Lexmark e352dn-load manual plain letter message


In most cases if the printer is asking for an unexpected manual feed it is because the paper tray is not set to the right paper size or type. To set the paper size to the most common size and type (letter size plain paper) use the following instructions.

1. Press the Menu button.
2. Press the right arrow key until Paper Menu then press Check Mark.
3. Press the right arrow key until Size/Type then press Check Mark.
4. Press the right arrow key until Tray 1 then press Check Mark.
5. Press the right or left arrow key until Letter then press Check Mark.
6. Press the right or left arrow key until Plain then press Check Mark.
7. Press the back button until Ready is displayed.

This will set up your printer tray for plain letter paper and should relieve the manual feed error unless yourcomputer is sending other paper size/type settings.

Paper not pulling from tray 2 when tray 1 empties - Lexmark T654


For the majority of the Lexmark printers, all that needs to be done is to set the paper size and type the same for each drawer. Example - drawer 1 & 2 sizes are set to letter, drawer 1 & 2 paper types are set to plain. Set up this way, when drawer 1 empties, the printer will automatically switch to drawer 2 to supply the paper.

Lexmark T642 - I have plain white paper in tray 1 and yellow plain paper in the mp feeder tray. When I choose to print to the mp feeder tray the printer beeps to be loaded with paper but the paper is...


Make sure you have selected the multi purpose feeder (front of the printer) in the driver, not the Manual Feeder.

The manual feeder will prompt for paper on each page. All you have to do is to press the "Go" button.

I need to reset the default settings on my Lexmark Optra S 1625


It sounds like they changed the Paper Type in the menu settings. I cannot remember 100% where it is on this model, but if you go through the menus, you should come across a Paper Menu option. In this menu, you need to change the Paper Type for Tray 1 to Plain Paper.

Lexmark Optra T610 keeps saying "change tray one to plain paper"


3 possibilities
1) the paper size sensor in the tray(those teeth on the size of the tray) is broken
2) The sliding paper guide is not pointing precisely at Letter
3) Your paper type is set to something other than Plain Paper.
