HP 8150 Laser Printer Paper Tray 4 no power Hi

HP 8150 Laser Printer Paper Tray 4 no power Hi there I have a tray 4 for the HP Lazerjet 8150N I do not have it connected up to a network. I just got it at home with one computer. I have the power cable plugged in. I have the other small cable in the two correct slots. The label on the lead say its a Hewlet Packard 00/15 C4781-70002 When i plug everything in nothing workers on tray 4 - ie no lights come on or noises happen. I have made sure the small grey cable is in the right slots. I have also checked the power cable and it works. The printer is working fine ie the HP8150 using tray 2 and 3. Is there an on/off switch for tray 4 that i cannot see? Thanks for any help given.

SOURCE: Just trying to print 2181 Avery Laser Labels - "Paper Size or type is incorrect"

I have had this same problem trying to print DVD lable sheets.
I spent hours trying to work it out, HP support said it was the software(hmmm)
The answer to the problem is, the printer senses the printed block colour band on the preprinted lable sheet. I am using Fellowes - Neato DVD tempate sheets which have a black, block of colour on the leading edge, I'm not sure about Avery.
I found the quick fix is, turn the sheet around end for end against the manufacturers instructions. The opposite end is plain and goes through OK. You may have to calibrate the software to compensate if the printing starts in a different position this end, my sheets are the same within about 1mm.
You could also cut the block colour off the sheet if the direction was critical, and make allowance for the starting position.
I find the printer is good apart from this problem.
I hope this helps, it worked for me.
Regards, Rob.

SOURCE: My HP LaserJet 4200 prints fine from tray 2, but will NOT print envelopes from tray 1. It WILL print on regular paper from tray 1, but will not print envelopes. What gives? I've already rebooted the

Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?

I hope this helps.

How do is set third tray as my default tray?


In your printer preferences, changer paper 'source'. For this specific printer the HP Laser Jet 4: Under the "General" Tab there is a button LEFT of "print test page". Click on that [printing preferences], the next window that comes up, click on the top tab that reads "Paper/Quality" and select 'lower tray' or your tray of choice.

Hp laserjet 8150. i have a problem, tray 3 empty, always but have paper in tray 3


CAUSE: This error message indicates the paper present sensor flag in one of the trays does not detect paper in the tray. This could be caused by one of the following:
  • A broken sensor flag
  • The tray paper guides being set too close and restricting the paper from being pulled
  • The tray is not lifting
SOLUTION: Follow the steps below to determine the cause of a false TRAY X EMPTY message. Tray 2 empty
  1. Verify there is paper in the tray.
  2. Open the duplex unit access door just above Tray 2 on the front of the printer.
  3. Check the black-paper present flag by looking in through the duplex access door.
  4. Open and close Tray 2 and observe the tray lifting looking through the duplex unit access door.
The tray lifts but the error is still present
  1. Inspect the paper present flag on the PIU located just behind the pickup rollers. Ensure the flags are present and not damaged.
  2. Remove the tray guides from the tray and reseat them. Ensure the guides are seated correctly and are in the correct slot for the size paper in the tray. Add paper to the tray and try printing again.
  3. Try another known good tray, if available.
The tray does not lift and the error is still present
  1. Remove the tray, remove the paper in the tray, and inspect the lifting plate in the tray for damage. Ensure it will lift freely by hand.
  2. Try another known good tray if available.
Tray 3 empty
  1. Verify there is paper in the tray.
  2. Remove Tray 2.
  3. Open and close Tray 3 and verify it lifts by observing through the Tray 2 cavity.
The tray lifts but the error is still present
  1. Inspect the paper present flag on the PIU located just behind the pickup rollers. Ensure the flags are present and not damaged.
  2. Remove the tray guides from the tray and reseat them. Ensure the guides are seated correctly and are in the correct slot for the size paper in the tray. Add paper to the tray and try printing again.
  3. Try another known good tray if available.
The tray does not lift and the error is still present
  1. Remove the tray, remove the paper in the tray, and inspect the lifting plate in the tray for damage. Ensure it will lift freely by hand.
  2. Try another known good tray if available.
Tray 4 empty
  1. Verify there is paper in the tray
  2. Open Tray 4 and check for an extra **** of paper stored on the left side of the tray. This can cause the tray to stall while lifting and result in a tray empty message.
  3. Defeat the interlock in the vertical transfer unit (VTU). Open and close Tray 4 and watch the tray lift through the VTU door on the lower-right side of the printer.
    NOTE: Follow troubleshooting steps for Trays 2 and 3 when working with the 2 X 500 sheet-input tray.
The tray lifts but the error is still present
  1. Check the tray guides to ensure the guides are seated corrected and are in the correct slots for the paper size in the tray.
  2. Inspect the paper present sensor for damage.
  3. Check for any broken plastic pieces in the tray that may be a broken sensor flag.
The tray does not lift and the error is still present Defeat the VTU interlock on the right side of Tray 4. Open and close Tray 4 and observe the tray lifting.

Hp Laserjet 8150. Does not pick up from Tray 3....but the tray does lift


Start by pulling out tray 2 and setting it on the floor. Next take out tray 3 and slide it into tray 2. Print from tray 2. If it works, take the tray on the floor and put it into the tray 3 slot. Print from tray 3. If it fails change the feed rollers.

hp printers typically do not have an error message to cover every known condition, thus if the printer needs maintenance in an undefined area, it will invariably indicate a paper jam. The printer usually responds to the installation of a maintenance kit which will include transfer roller, pickup rollers, and fuser.
