Printing from the wrong trey

When I try to load a paper from trey 1 for some reason it would automactically start printing from trey 2. Is this a mechanical or softwear problem, any help would be appreciated.

2) check tray 1 box back side, there is a sensor (optical sensor it does not work), you need find out a white lable stick around there, if the lable is not white enough, the optical sensor does not detecting tray 1.

My Epson Artisan 7-110 keeps trying to print to cassette 2 (small cassette) even when copying A4. A4 paper is loaded in Cassette 1. Why?


If its not a setting problem, it may not be communicating with your computer properly, try turning it off, wait a little while and turn it back on, if that doesn't work delete your printer off your computer and re install it, Is it the default printer on your computer? some times if you run more than one printer from your computer there's a conflict which can make it behave in weird and wonderful ways.

Lexmark T644 Drawer 2 Missing error message but drawer 2 is in place. Drawer 2 always has problems pulling form form drawer when printing from drawer 2.


If job prints from the wrong tray or on the wrong paper or specialty media, this is an indication that the operator panel menu settings do not match the media loaded in the tray.

Make sure the Paper Size and Paper Type specified in the printer driver match the paper size and type in the tray.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Error code is 241.07 Paper Jam on display with no actual paper jam.. paper tray is empty but will not feed from next full tray


Amazing. Paper jam error yet there was no paper. Tried to clean it with air, changed paper and restarted. Still no luck! Called Leximark tech support and they asked about the warranty that had just lapsed. Literally the printer was a year and 1 month old. I kept trying to ask if they could just send out one of there techs. After a day and a half someone from Leximark called and said they would need to replace 3 things for ....$909. Mind you they have not even seen the printer. I asked them to explain this ridiculous price, they put me on hold again when finally a guy that didn't seem to care said that is the standard price for us to repair for out of warranty printers. I went to this forum and used a couple of the suggestions. Turns out the arm that raises the paper on tray 1 is slipping. The cogs are not catching when they turn. I was able to assess this by checking the arm on trey 2 which was working well and was not slipping when I manually turned it with my hand.
The fix or the workaround for me was to remove the paper from trey 1 and change the settings to default trey 2 as the main paper source.
I realize this didn't fix it, but I just saved $900 until I decide to get a local repair shop to come and fix the arm on trey 1. I can't imagine that is going to cost $900. This is the last Leximark we will ever purchase.

You may not have removed the plastic seal from the cartridge.
• Make sure you install the cartridge properly (1 p. 2-13).
The cartridge may need to be replaced.
• Replace the cartridge (1 p. 12-7).

Toner may be low or unevenly distributed.

Printer will not kick out document automatically, attention lite keeps flashing. tray 2 selected but always defaults back to tray 1


Sounds like you have a mismatch in the paper you are trying to print on and the paper that is loaded in the printer. HP printers look to feed paper from tray 1 anytime the computer settings don't match the paper loaded in tray 2. Tray 1 is the multi purpose tray and prety much any size paper can be loaded in tray 1. Double check your document settings and double check the paper size loaded in the paper tray 2 and make sure they match. Also try printing a different document to see if the error persists. If it does this on everything you try to print you should also double check teh rear guide in the paper tray. There is a rear guide in paper tray 2. If it slides back too far it will make the printer think that paper longer than 8 1/2 x 11 is loaded. Push the paper all the way forward in the tray and push the rear guide until it is snug with the tail end of the paper stack.

Trouble printing envelopes on kodak esp3 printer


Have you tried this procedure?
----------------------------------------------------------
Loading Envelopes
You can load plain envelopes into the paper tray of your Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One printer.
Important Do not use envelopes with cutouts or cellophane windows.
1 Remove any other paper from the paper tray.
2 Insert one or more envelopes into the right side of the paper tray with the print side down and
the envelope flaps on the right, pointing left.

3 Squeeze the paper-width guide and move it to its right-most position up against the envelopes.
4 Leave the paper tray open while the envelopes are loaded.

If you have and it's not printing correctly, there is probably a problem with the document you're trying to print.
