OK, to make this clearer, I had the same problem on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.
My Fix, combining several others:
1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.
Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list
Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.
If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.
When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!

There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

System Error: 47:YZ
Star wheels motor error..
Corrective Action: Try the following:
Switch the Power OFF from the back of the Printer and disconnect the
Power cord. Reconnect the power cord and power On the Printer.
Check that the Starwheel Assembly cable is not damaged and is correctly
connected to Main PCA.
Open the Window and check for any visible obstacles restricting the
movement of the Starwheel Assembly, then clear the obstruction.
Perform the Scan Axis Starwheel diagnostic test to troubleshoot the
problem further → Page 4-7.
Replace the Starwheel Motor → Page 8-167.
If the System Error continues, replace the Main PCA
Okay, this is direct from the repair manual. if this is a new printer you have one year warranty service on this printer. hope this helps!

I just ran into this same issue with an HP LaserJet P4015n. Worked with HP and the resolution ended up being the following.
Hopefully this will work with the P4515n printer as well.
1. Open EWS page (printer page) in Internet Explorer.
2. Log into printer as administrator
2. Click on Settings tab, Configure device, System Setup
3. You will find Tray Behavior
4. Change tray 2 model to Standard Tray.
This should give you the standard options for the Tray 2 size or default to the size detected.

Star Wheel Motor has a problem.
01 code says "reseat/reconnect/clean and manually adjust" the motor.
The Star Wheel Motor is on the left side of the printer.
If you arn't trained on it, get someone who is, to service it.

This error relates to the starwheel assembly and motor. Open the printer and make sure that there are no paper jams or anything blocking the star wheels (the little pointy wheels that guide the paper.
If nothing is visisble then service diagnostics are required. Not sure of your technical skill level, so post back if you are comfortable disassembling the unit, if not, contact HP to find a local Designjet technician.
