Question about Dell 5100cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

How do we add an additional paper tray to the existing printer?

Our original paper tray broke so that we could not "fix" the paper in 8 1/2 x 11 size. I bought a new paper tray and now we need to configure the printer to switch between trays.

From the printer menu, go into the paper menu, change the "default source" to tray 2.

Also, on each computer that you have the driver loaded on, you can right click on the printer icon, go to properties, and select your default printing options.

How do I get the printer to print automatically using the bypass tray


you can set the bypass tray the size you want then set paper size setting in the printer driver at your PC.

Hold down the [PAPER SIZE ENTER] key more than 5 seconds to
set the selected paper size.
The currently selected paper feed location indicator will blink and the
corresponding paper size (which is currently set) indicator will light
steadily.

All other indicators will go out.
If the machine has two paper trays, use the [TRAY SELECT] key to
select the paper tray for which you wish to change the paper size
setting.

Each time the [TRAY SELECT] key is pressed, a paper tray will be
indicated with a blinking paper feed location indicator.
Use the [ORIGINAL SIZE ENTER] key to select the paper size you want to set.
The indicator of the selected paper size lights up.

Press the [START] key and then the [PAPER SIZE ENTER] key.
To change the paper size setting of another tray, repeat steps
after pressing the [START] key

Make sure that the tray's paper size setting is the same as the tray's
paper size setting in the printer driver. For example, if the tray's paper
size setting is A4R (LT-R), set "Setting Paper Size" to "A4-R".

that should set them back to letter size. email me if you have problems with it

Hello, I have an invitation that is 4in wide x 9 inches in height. I want to print something on it, but not sure how to get my printer to recognize that I am using custom size paper. It keeps printing on...


In addition to the wide variety of standard paper sizes available for this printer, you can use custom size paper in the Tray 1 (MPT).
The size range for custom size media is as follows:
    Minimum allowable page size:
    89 x 140 mm (3.5 x 5.5 in.)
    Maximum allowable page size:
    216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 in.)
  1. Open Tray 1 (MPT).
  2. Insert the custom size paper and adjust the guides to match the size of the paper. Place the side to be printed facedown with the top of the page entering the printer first.
  3. When the front panel prompts you to confirm the type and size of paper:
    1. Scroll to Change by pressing the Down Arrow key and press the OK key.
    2. Scroll to the correct paper type and press the OK key to save your selection.
    3. For the paper size, scroll to Custom and press the OK key.
    4. Select Set Custom Width (W) by pressing the OK key.
    5. Press the Down Arrow or Up Arrow key to scroll to the desired value for X and then press the OK key.
    6. Scroll to Set Custom Height (H) and press the OK key.
    7. Press the Down Arrow or Up Arrow key to scroll to the desired value for Y and then press the OK key.
  4. Select the custom size in the printer driver.
  5. Windows 95 / Windows 98 / Windows Me PostScript driver: On the Setup tab:
    • After you select the Multi-Purpose Tray and the tray displays Custom to indicate that it has custom size paper, enter the dimensions of the custom size paper in the Width and Height boxes.
    • If you select Automatic for the paper source and select Custom Size for the paper size, enter the width and height values of the desired custom size paper in the Width and Height boxes. The values for width and height are initially 0. If you previously entered information in the boxes, the values are automatically entered.
    Windows NT / Windows 2000 / Windows XP PostScript driver: On the Paper/Quality tab:
    • If you select Choose Specific Tray, select the Multi-Purpose Tray.
    • If you select Automatic, you can select your custom size from the Paper Size drop-down list.
    • Click My Custom Sizes and highlight the custom size in the Current Selection list. The Name, Width, and Height boxes display the details about the highlighted custom size and the sample image changes to represent a scaled version of the custom size.
    • To create a new custom size:
      1. Click New.
      2. Enter the new name in the Name box.
      3. Enter the dimensions in the Width and Height boxes. The sample image changes to represent a scaled version of the new custom size.
      4. Click Save to add the new size to the list. Click Cancel to exit without saving the new custom size.
      5. To exit, click Close.
    • The My Custom Sizes box lists existing custom sizes that are supported by the current printer. Since these custom sizes are saved in your computer's operating system, they are available for you to select in your applications.
    • If you create a custom size in certain applications, the driver lists the custom size automatically.
    MacOS 8 / MacOS 9 driver:
    • In the Page Setup dialog box, click on Page Attributes, and select Custom Page Sizes. Then press New to enter a new custom page size. A dialog box appears where you can enter the width and height, margins, and name of the custom page size.
