Trying to use Bypass tray on Toshiba 281C. Using Word 2007 on XP machine, printer is networked. I set Printer properties to Bypass Tray and Word's Print Options to Bypass Tray, but it still picks up paper from main tray. What's up??
It worked one time today but not a second time. Anything that needs to be "reset" on the printer that could be forcing to use main paper tray?
Problem isn't "solved", but have realized that the issue is related to the fact that the document I am trying to print is formatted for envelopes. When I print a regular word document (letter) it prints fine to the Bypass tray. It must have something to do with the fact that the document is 1000 envelopes. If I print to a PDF file, then print the document to the Bypass Tray I don't seem to have a problem.

The 281c can be set to print to black only as a cost saving measure. The printer control panel is accessed through your browser (using the IP address of the printer) and the setting is made there. You should be able to override this through the printer properties in windows, but I have found that the PCL5 driver worked to switch between B/W and colour, while the PCL6 driver did not. So, for me the easy solution was to install the PCL5 driver and use that.
my Toshiba studio 281c printer operates normally while running on windows xp through my LAN. When I try to print on it while running on windows 7, it will not respond, it does appear in the printer list?
Someone has told the machine to either make a copy or print from a PC to the Bypass feed tray on the copier. If you are not trying to print something by using the bypass tray then just turn the machine off, then on again to clear the request from the copier. If you are trying to print or copy from the bypass tray then simply insert the correct paper size and direction into the bypass tray slot and the machine should automatically begin printing.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
there are two places to set the paper tray on the ricoh aficio 2035 print drivers first make sure you are using the PCL 5 drivers not pcl6 or rpcs then go to the printers folder and set the defaults by right clicking the printer and selecting properties printing preferences, then go into word and select print set up and properties then defaults for printer select bypass tray and select labels enter the correct sheet size for the labels from the drop down box click apply and you should be set.
