imageclass MF249dw - can't print from multipurpose tray


Hi all, I have an imageclass MF249dw.

I am trying to print from the multipurpose tray (assuming that's the name of the top tray) using custom-sized paper of 4.5 x 6.38". I've changed my printer settings and the laptop printing settings to be the same size. However, I'm getting the error "No paper: MP tray. Load paper". There is definitely paper loaded. How do I get it to recognize that there is paper?
Paper is loaded with the short edge in, and the printer makes a beep when I slide the paper in. So it seems like it's recognizing it. But the screen still says "Load paper".
I have reset, unplugged and hard reset, and downloaded all recent drivers. What else can I do??
Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a MacOS High Sierra version 10.13.6 (and also a MacOS Big Sur version 11.5.2) - using wifi connection - and am not able to successfully print from either computer.


Please let me know if you need any other details!
