There could be a few issues causing this problem.
1. Your document size on the actual document you are attempting to print believes it is letter (which is the default).
To change this setting, you must tell the computer you wish to print on legal paper.

To do this in MS. OUTLOOK:
Put the curser at the top of the page
then...under 'File-Print-Preferences-Layout-Advanced-Paper size-change to legal (from Letter'
-slightly tedious...but follow along and this should help

2. The printer needs to be adjusted to hold the legal paper.
Open up the legal tray to adjust the paper holder to hold the paper snuggly...it slides roughly.

Hope this helps..if you need more assistance please ask...also please rate my solution.
PLEASE note that anything other than a FIX-YA is actually a negative rank...and will lower my success...I didn't make the system...but that is the way it is in FIX-YA.
thanks

When I print a "letter" size document I have to push the green button to make it print. If it is legal it prints automatically to the legal tray.


Obviosly your magazine (Place of taking paper) of the printer is set to legal. The lights is lighting, couse the printer is telling you: You want me to print on letter, but I don have any letter, so please confirm that you want me to print on legal.
In order to avoid this set the printer to all types of paper available.

Copying legal size on a Brother MFC 7420


This is for a temporary, as needed solution: Press "Menu/Set" button. Select "General Setup". Scroll down and select "Paper Size", find and select "Legal" size. Press Menu/Set button again. Press "Stop/Exit" button.
Insert legal size paper to be copied on the feeder tray and put a legal size paper in the Manual slot. Hit "Print"
You need to do these same steps again to return the settings to Letter size again.

The document you're trying to print is formatted for legal size paper, and the tray contains only letter size. if it's a legal size, put legal paper into the MP tray, or override the setting and manually select "letter size" in the printer dialog box.

We had problems to print legal and after 30 minutes of trying it finally printed legal. Now we cant go back to letter size so every document prints on legal paper. Can I get clear instruction on how we can...


When you say printing? Do you mean from the computer or are you making copies. If you are printing from the computer you need to change the paper size that you are printing to under the printers properties or the out put tray. If you are making copies just hit the reset button or just manually select another paper tray on the display pannel. Or if you have change a paper tray to leagal size change it back to LTR and make sure the paper is installed the correct direction.

Tray output


You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!

Printing


Do the printer works fine with letter paper? Does the paper size is selected as Legal for your print job? You can try to re-install the printer driver, sometimes this solve the issue.
