Re: Printing Issue

I had to define and set a new custom paper size in the printer driver- 2mm shorter than the A4 papar that I'm using. Maybe paper sensor misaligned?

Re: Printing Issue

Test the driver. Go in the properties for the printer and set the number of copies to 4. Try to print a Windows test and and see if you get the same error message. If you do, then the issue is the paper settings in Printing preferences and probably needs to be changed to LETTER paper. If you don't get an error message, the issue is the application you are printing from. Make sure the application is set to letter under printer setup.

Hp color Laserjet printer 5550 printing very slow

Please check your paper tray adjustments and verify that the paper type for the tray is set to any type or plain (assuming you are printing on plain paper). In general, if the machine has reason to believe that there is a custom size or special type of media, it prints at half speed.

WHAT IS 007-243 code error

This fault code isn't specific to one location/function on your machine, however, I believe it is directly related to your paper trays. Other fault codes begining with 007-??? state a tray sensor error, misfed media in a tray etc...
If you're trying to print to a specific tray and it won't print giving this error, you may want to try printing using a different tray. It is entirely possible you have some jammed up paper in the paper path and this will stop all trays from printing.
Potential solution:
Ensure you don't have any paper jams related to your paper path and trays, herre is a link that provides you all iinstructions to clear any paper jam on your device

NOTE: The above link is a support knowledgebase and you can search on any problem you may have with your product by typing the natural language query in the search field, paper jam, can't print, scan fails transferiing etc...

Once you have determined there isn't a paper jam or if so gently remove any misfed paper.Reboot the device PO/PO power off/power on.
If the print jobs fail again, check your job status and see if there is any info listed for your print job, could be a media mismatch.
Try printing to another paper tray, if your job is calling for paper from tray 3 try using tray 4 or tray 5 etc..
I have provided a generic response to this question and kind of throwing ideas out there, if you could provide additional information I may be able to give a better solution.
Check the details of your job in the job status list?
A lot of times the machine will provide good direction on potential issues with a print job.
Are you trying to print on a custom paper size?
If you tell the print driver to print to tray 3 and you have 8.5X11 loaded in tray 3 and your print job from ypour PC is actually 8.5X14 then the job will not print simply put the media has to match the job.

I hope this helps.

Hi there!
The message that ask you to manually feed the paper will appear if you have recently printed on a different type of media.
Does this happen from only one application like Microsoft Word? If it does try printing a test page or a document from other application like Notepad or Wordpad.
If the same issue occurs go to the Printers folder (under control panel) then right click on your Brother printer icon, left click on Properties, click on Printing Preferences and make sure that Tray 1 is selected for the tray, Plain paper for paper type. If changes have been made make sure to click on the apply button to apply the changes.
If it only happens to one application like Microsoft Word. Click on File ( or the orb icon on the upper left hand corner) then Print, then Print again click on Printing Preferences and make sure Tray 1 is selected and Plain Paper.
Hope this helps! Thanks

My HP photosmart 2710 all-in-one has "spot sensor


The Spot Sensor Out of Calibration error comes due to color paper placed in paper tray.

Follow the steps to resolve this issue.

1. Under printing preferences set the paper type to plain paper instead of automatic. This makes it so that the spot sensor doesn't need to look at the paper.
2. The spot sensor, when calibrating, needs plain white paper. Setting the plain paper instead of automatic helps if you are just printing, but colored paper makes the spot sensor confused during calibration.

If you are still not able to print, there is a utility program that fixes the issue too and which will be helpful for you in future use too. Click on the link to download the utility program : Utility download

Hope this resolves the issue.

Is there away of getting around the paper orientation when I duplex.

This cant be right, if you print on one side, then it is the same as when it prints the first page of a duplex print.

Paper should be face down, head to front for both, make sure you are using duplex driver for your printer and duplex option is ticked. (4250DuplexTwotrayNetwork)\

make sure trays on machine are identified with correct papertype (tray 2 plain and tray 3 letterhead or vice versa)

printer I beleive has setting too enable duplex in print menu.

tray one in manual feeder on these.

When I set these up sometimes I install the print driver twice, ones set to use letterhead and the other plain, so customer can just choose which ever one at print time.

Usally it is set up that you go to driver and select tray or windows decides depending on what doc type is set on what you are printing.

So you need to check settings on printer paper handling and printer menu, you also need to check driver on pc, if on a network you may need to have admin rights to change driver config on server if your system requires it. But you need to check drive has coorect tray/paper type and options too

You also need to check doc type settings on individual document being printed

I have 1000's of customers, running HP (including 4250dtn and this has never been a issue raised.)

Ignore manual, stick letter head in tray 2/3 face down front and print single sided, then use same tray and do it duplex, it will do as the first one did then turn it over and print other side.

I think most customers don't duplex on letterhead, they use that as cover then duplex on plain, but I cant see it not working if you did, otherwise I would of come across it buy now, this machines format has been around for ages and they are great workhourse printers once noisy swing plate gear fault is fixed (common 4250 fault)
