Go to menu, in tray tray behaving tray1 select as unless paper load,in tray2 page size as any size.. while giving print command select printer properties, goto paper/quality select paper source automatic or tray2 & shoot print command & check... # if you are not selected tray 1 as unless paper load, it will ask paper to load after command reached to it. # if you are not selected tray2 as any paper size, defined paper size only it will allow to print..any paper size it will print with out questing you..
The print job you are sending is in A4 format. If you are using Adobe Acrobat you will sometimes find that documents created in places such as Europe will be A4 not letter size. Check the settings when you send the print job as Acrobat gives you the option to resize and print to available media. You can also check your printer settings as there may be the option to automatically print A4 to letter.
If you are in Canada or US then you need to set the default paper size to Letter not A4. Most if not all software you use likely sends the print job in letter format. Because the printer is set in A4 it stops and waits for that size.
Re: CP2025 cleaning at every possible moment
Talked to HP support and fixed mine by changing Settings/Paper Handling/Tray 2 Type to "Heavy 111-130g"
All paper handling settings as follows:
Default Paper Size:
Default Paper Type:
Tray 1 Size:
Tray 1 Type:
Tray 2 Size:
Tray 2 Type:
Paper Out Handling
Specify Time and Action
Paper Out Time:
Paper Out Action:
Don't set by using the "Print" option.
Go to [Start]
[Printers and Faxes]
right-click on the HP printer entry
! Don't select "Printing Preferences"! from there
Select [Advanced] tab
Select [Printing Defaults]
(I know, the screen looks the same, but it functions differently this way)
Change paper size to "Letter"
[OK, OK, OK]
the manual tray is the is the one above the tray,
1-either your tray is set incorrectly must be set to Letter/Plain
priority is tray 2 not tray 1
tray one is the by-pass / manual
since this printer does not have a screen on it everything is setup through the PC.
print a configuration page and you will see all the settings
Turns out there was an easy solution. I filed a support case and had an answer in half a day:
"Often this issue is caused by a sensor. â Therefore the first thing we should do is try to trigger the sensor. 1 Turn off the HP LaserJet 3050 2 Remove the toner cartridge from the HP LaserJet 3050 3 Remove all of the paper in the paper tray 4 Check the entire paper path for any obstructions 5 Reseat the toner cartridge and paper 6 Power on the HP LaserJet 3050
If the issue is still not resolved we will need to try some resets on the HP LaserJet 3050. 1. The first reset we can try is a soft reset, it is done by pressing the MENU key then holding *# together. â This will bring you into a Developers Menu. â Scroll through the options until you find reinit FFS and then press the ENTER key. 2. If this reset doesn't clear the issue we can try a harder reset. â We can do this by pressing MENU, scrolling over to SERVICE, pressing ENTER, scrolling over to RESTORE DEFAULTS and pressing ENTER to restore the defaults and ENTER to confirm.
WARNING: Restoring the defaults will clear your fax settings, phonebook numbers and headers so you may want to print a phonebook report and Config Report first. â We can do this by accessing the Reports menu.
3. If these two resets do not help there is a third reset we can try.This reset will completely put the HP LaserJet 3050 back to factory defaults.WARNING: Before doing this reset we will need to disconnect the power cord, the phone cable, and the USB cable from the back of the HP LaserJet 3050.We can do this reset by unplugging the power cord from the back of the HP LaserJet 3050 then holding down the MENU/ENTER key and * symbol at the same time,then powering the HP LaserJet 3050 back on with the keys compressed.We will release the keys as soon as PERMANENT STORAGE INIT appears on the display screen."
I tried all the steps in sequence; it took #3 to fix it. Fortunately I didn't have a big fax address book or custom settings, so a factory defaults reset didn't cause any extra problems. It retained the time and date, and now it works fine.
