There is a Paper Menu option somewhere in the menus on the op-panel. You need to go to the Paper Type option and change the Paper Type for Tray 1 to plain paper. You can also hit the Select button when you get this message and you will print.

SOURCE: Dell 3100cn Printer will not print

I had to actually change the settings in Microsoft Word to resolve this problem.

If you go to page setup > paper source > there should be lists for "first page" and "other pages".

You can set this to "as per printer settings" and hopefully it should work.

On the paper tray 1, there is a paper size sensor that looks like a whitish triangle. The "legal paper size sensor is stuck in the down position.
If you can't find it, remove all of the paper and you will notice the letter-size sensor. Un-stick the legal sensor and clean the sensor area so it won't stick again.

SOURCE: WHEN PRINTING - THE PRINTER SAYS TRAY 1 LOAD PLAIN

You have the settinigs on the printer wrong. There are two things you need to do:
1. Open the tray and check that the paper guides are set to 8.5 x 11 (letter). There are both length and width guides in the paper tray, and EXEC size is quite a bit off from letter-it is more than 0.5 inch narrower than letter. It is also shorter than letter.
2. On the printer, use the settings button to navigate to the paper size. (The exact wording may vary; it's been a while since I worked on a 4050. It may be under print settings.) Once you find the paper size menu, configure tray 2-yes, I'm sure-to use letter size, any type. By the way, on HP lasers, tray 1 is the fold down tray on the front, tray 2 is the tray that will hold 500 sheets of paper and is the "drawer" that you load. Don't ask me why they use that numbering system.

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.

I have a Lexmark T630 printer and every time I go to print it beeps and says change tray 1. How to I get it to not beep while printing?


You will need to change your paper handling.
From the machine, go into the Menu-> then Paper Menu -> Change your paper size and type to your machine settings. Example if tray 1 is letter make sure it's set to letter and plain, then confirm each tray setting for each tray attached to the machine.
Also pull the tray(s) out completely and make sure the guides are set correctly. (The guides move so you can put legal, A4 etc.)
I've come across a lot of machines that the guides are off by a fraction which will prompt your machine to display the message you stated.

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.

Most probably the paper tray guide is not set properly. Here's a link to the Lexmark website to guide you on what to do when having an error like this. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/c4AO17 . You can move the paper tray guide back and forth and setting it to the correct size.

In the printer setup menu. You need to change the paper type for tray 1. It's likely set to a different type of paper (maybe card stock?).

The printer driver will specify what type of paper is being used, and the printer doesn't know what type of paper is in it other than what it is told, so a conflict occurs.

Won't print


The printer is giving that message as the print job sent to the printer is asking for the correct paper type. Check the program you used and its print setup in that program to make sure the correct paper is selected. Software overrides hardware settings on a printer.Another thing is double check the tray position tab and make sure it is set to letter and locked in that position. If the paper tray is not set it can also think that the paper in the tray is a different paper size.

Paper does not feed from Tray 1.


Check your printer settings.

Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back
