Re: Printer Tray

Go into the Printer Dialog box from the start button. Right click on the printer and select Properties. Select Printing Preferences. Select the tab for 'Paper'. In the upper right hand corner you can select the paper source, just select tray 2 as the default and save your changes.

How do I change the default on my HP P30005dn to Tray 2?

Normal default on HP is tray 2, however if you do not have that tray set for plain paper letter size the printer will default to whichever tray has letter plain paper installed. You should also check your print driver default settings to ensure that tray 2 is set as default tray.

What is the difference between tray 1 and tray 2 and how to choose between them?

Tray one is usually set up as a multi-use tray. It provide a straighter paper path through the printer and is ideal for printing on thicker paper such as card stock, labels or transparencies. Tray 2 is for standard paper. The printer will usually default to tray one when paper is loaded. If not you can select it after you hit print, properties and select tray.

Printer selects tray1 as default tray. how can this be changed?

Tray 1 by default is set to any size, any type, which means that no matter what you print, it will pull from tray 1. You can change that by setting tray 1 for a specific size and type, such as 8.5" x 11"(Letter) and Plain paper, and then going into the print driver options (Control Panel, Printers & Faxes, right click on the HP 3550 and select Properties) and under the paper input tray, change it to either tray 2 or 3.

Default paper tray selection for HP LaserJet 4200tn

1) When the printer receives a print job, it selects the tray by trying to match the requested paper type and size with what has been loaded in the trays. Using an “autoselect” process, it searches all available trays for the paper that satisfies the request, starting with the bottom tray and ending with the top tray (tray 1). The printer begins printing the job as soon as it finds the proper type/size.

2) If paper is loaded in tray 1 and tray 1 is set "TRAY 1 TYPE=ANY" and "TRAY 1 SIZE=ANY" on the
Paper Handling menu, the printer will always pull paper from tray 1 first.

HP Laserjet 4700 Always Defaults to Tray 1

Your tray 1 might be open (even just partially) or your manual feed setting might be on. You can find this setting under > Configure device / Printing / Manual Feed

Lexmark T632 top tray is ejected when empty

Set tray 2 to be default tray. When this is empty, the printer moves to tray 3, and then on to tray 1.

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

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.

Won't print to right tray

I had this problem and solved it like this:

  1. Right click on printer driver in printers and faxes.
  2. Select printing preferences
  3. Choose paper quality tab
  4. Set paper size (A4 in my case)
  5. Set paper source to printer-auto-select. This is different from the default "Automatically select"

As long as tray 1 is empty, tray 2 should now kick in. Setting the paper source as tray 2 didn't work at all.

You seem to have to set this on each client computer though - even if you are sharing the printer over a network (4200n).
