SOURCE: load tray message

I remedied this a few times for a client...
If someone queues a print job in another size, let's say legal, instead of letter, the printer will cache that job as 1st in line until it is loaded with legal paper. I initialized the NVRAM of the printer and that took care of it every time.

Check your printer for paper size and type settings. Ensure they are set to letter and plain1. Also check the program you are printing from (Word, wordperfect, etc) and ensure the paper size is correct there as well.

SOURCE: prints 2 pages and says to load paper

Somehow after adding paper you changed the paper size to B5. Change it back to Letter and it should resolve your problems

Remove the paper tray and check the guides. Make sure they are lined up on the 8.5 X 11 marks. If it is lined up, try going into the menu of the printer and reset back to defaults.

I just replaced an ink cartridge and the printer keeps telling me to load paper then press OK, but I already have paper loaded. The machine keeps trying to pick up the paper, but unsuccessfully.


Hi, Please check the paper and the paper tray. The paper or the the paper tray is inserted properly. Turn off the printer and turn it back on after 10sec. and try to print that should work. Please get back to us if this information helps you solve the problem.

We loaded new pack of paper now printer tells me to load tray 1 as if it does not know that tray 2 is in place and loaded with paper.


This is due to paper handling either the guides in the tray are off (Example: Adjusting the tray from Letter to Legal) Or the paper handling settings in the machine are miss-configured. I don't know that machine type so I can't inform you correctly how to change but on most HP printers go into the menu from the control panel and arrow down to paper handling go to tray 2 size and type and make sure they are set to the same paper size and type as you have loaded into the machine.

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.

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
