Question about Lexmark T642 Laser Printer

T642 wont recognize tray 2 or duplex

On T642 lexmark the unit does not recognize tray 2 or the duplex unit installed. Setup only shows tray 1 and mp as tray options. It is not the tray 2 or the duplex unit because another printer works with them. Has to be something with the printer.

    There is a self docking connector on the bottom of the printer that connects to a similar connector on the duplex unit. Check that these connectors are not damaged by lifting the printer off the duplexer and inspecting visually . You can try removing the duplex unit altogether and just install tray 2 below the printer with no duplex unit at all to see if the printer sees tray 2. If it does see it

    then the problem is in the duplex unit. If the printer can't see the duplexer it also wont see tray 2 which is below it. Simply replugging the units might fix it too so give that a try.

You need to be sure you add the duplex unit and tray unit in the windows driver. The "device" tab will allow you to add the duplex and tray to the
printer.

If you disable the MP feature in settings that'll fix it or change the print priority to tray 1.

How do i remove the duplex?


Here's an article on How to Install a Duplex Option on a Lexmark T64x Series Printer. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/94TYQc. This is just to give you an idea on how the duplex option is installed. The duplex unit attaches under the printer, below the standard tray (tray 1) and above any option drawers (trays 2, 3, etc). Removing it is just a matter of lifting up the printer from the duplex option and then lifting up duplex unit removing it from the option drawers, if you have any.

There is usually no reset from the machine it is in your printer properties. Open the properties and set it to the tray you want it to feed from and usually there is a apply button try that.

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.

Our printer says load MP feeder. We can't get it to print. Please


The front of the printer is a door that opens this is the MP feeder. Load paper in it and the unit should print. Someone likely sent a job requesting that tray.

Lexmark t642 load mp feeder with letter


The reason that your printer is asking you to load paper into the MPF is that it doesn't think it has that size paper in tray 1 or 2. Make sure that the green paper guide in the paper tray that you want to print from is latched in the correct position. This guide tells the printer what size paper is in the tray. If you have it even slightly out of position you'll get this message.

Printer problem


Check your paper configuration. Make sure Tray 1 is configured for Plain paper and is showing the right paper size. If it is configured for anything other than Plain Paper, most of your jobs will not print. Also, if the size says something like Univseral, then the printer is not touch that tray unless your print job also specifies Univeral as the size. If is does say Universal, check the paper guide in the tray and make sure it is pointing exactly at the paper size you are using
