SOURCE: paper feed

Check tray 1 there should be an arm hanging down in the center of the tray the arm goes thru a slot in the metal plate. This arm moves when you install paper in tray 1. If the arm is missing or not in the slot the machine will think paper is in tray 1 and try to feed from tray 1. You can try changing the paper size setting for tray one to something other than the size in tray 2.

For example If tray 2 is set for 8.5x11 set tray 1 for legal.
The machine should then pull the correct size based on the print job.
Hope this helps

The printer recognizes tray 2 but it will not print to tray 2.


The printer will not print from any tray if tray one is pulled out. the paper path from any other tray still goes through tray 1\'s feed path (little slit in the front of the tray). if tray one is not in the printer it will not pull from any other lower tray.

Tray 1 doesn't feed while tray 2 has paper, after I empty the paper from tray 2, tray 1 work fine.


if you setup tray 1 any type, any size and tray 2 to plain, and letter size, it will allow you to use tray 2 for your plain letter jobs but will pull from the manual feed tray first only if the paper is in the manual feed tray if this makes any sense to you... please mark this as a fixya...

Where is the manual feed


I think, there is None.
You have only tray 1 so manual feed must also be done using tray 1 by taking out all the other papers
If that is too inconvenient, get the optional tray 2. Fill that with paper and leave tray 1 for manual feed

Feeds ok from tray 1 but not tray 2 which is 11x17. There are slight buffed marks at on the papaer in 4 spots but paper wont advance. marks are about 1/4 inch long


those marks are the rollers trying to move the paper. check to see if your tray 2 is lifting.if it is then replace the feed rollers.
