Receiving the error "M1-5712 The Manual Feeder is empty. User intervention required to add a paper to Manual feeder."
This happens when I try to print an envelope from Word for Mac. I am inserting a #10 envelope when I try to print the envelope. If I open the guides and insert an A4 piece of paper, the printer will print the destination and return addresses on the paper.

M1-5712 The paper tray is empty. / Paper is loaded in the tray but the machine detects an empty status.
If there is a paper jam, clear the jam.
Load paper in the tray.
Try reinstalling the driver for your computer:
Let me know your result please.

thanks. Per my original post, there is no jam and envelopes are inserted. I already updated the driver last month. What is the date of the driver you linked? There are no release notes or information other than the version numer in the link...

Alright I made an extra research, and MAC OS sometimes has some issues with using the manual feeder, if ytou have another computer with Windows, you can try printing the envelope there, or you could try updating the printer Firmware.
If you update the Firmware from MAC is totally necessary to have the printer connected on the network since you need to open the SyncThru Web Service by typing in the IP address assigned to your printer on any web browser (192.168.xx.xx)
1. Go to the SyncThruWeb Service (SWS) main home page.
Login as Admin in SyncThruWeb Service.
NOTE: Login using the Administrator ID and Password established
during initial machine setup.
2. Click [Maintenance] on the top menu.
And then click [Firmware Upgrade] or Application Management > Application
3. Click Add button
4. Click [Browse]. Choose installation file by browsing file system. And click OK button (the file has a .hd extension)
5. The uploading step will start. After this step, next step will be started automatically.
6. The firmware update will start.
7. Once the f/w update is complete, the machine power-off and power-on automatically.
You have this instructions on a pdf file inside the zip folder.
Here is the link for the latest Firmware thsat we have.
