The OKI C650 will inform you when it encounters any media related problems. Most errors will be about empty trays or incorrect paper size. You can fix those issues by reloading your plate media on the multipurpose tray. Or refilling the paper tray correctly.
When printing number plates, make sure your printer preferences are set to use the multipurpose tray, just like the image above. And if printing doesn’t start and you get error code 490, check the paper placement cover (A) is lowered – as shown the image below. Load a stack of plate media instead of few sheets, to ensure it triggers the sensor.
