Question about Lexmark X656DE Multifunction Printer - 16M1797
We have letterhead in the multipurpose tray and when Tray 1 runs out of plain paper the machine automatically defaults to drawing the letterhead and this is wasteful because all of that used letterhead has to be dumped.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Stopping Auto Tray Selection
If you use different print materials of the same size in the trays, each tray with a different print material should have a unique paper type setting to prevent the printer from linking the trays together and mistakenly printing on the wrong paper.
From the printer's operator panel, choose the paper menu, then paper type, then select the source (ie, tray) that you want to change.
For example, if you have plain paper in tray 1 and preprinted paper in tray 2 and both are set up where size = A4 and type = Plain paper then when Tray 1 runs out it will automatically feed from Tray 2. To prevent this from happening you should change Tray 2 type = Letterhead. In this way, the printer knows that the two media types aren't identical and won't pull from that tray unless you specifically tell it to.

You need to tell the printer that the two papers are different. I assume they are the same size so the printer thinks they are the same unless you have configured the Paper types to be different.
Set Tray 1 type as Plain and Tray 2 type as custom 1. hope this helps

Have you tried checking that tray 2 has the same paper type as tray 1. If your machine is network attached, you can access the embedded web server (where device settings can be adjusted) by entering the device IP address into a browser. Find the web address from the machine by going to menu (key icon), reports, then arrow over to network set up page. NSP is a 1 page report which will tell you the IP address. Go to a web browser and type in that IP address. Should take you to your device web page. From that page you can change the device settings (click on settings and then paper menu). Check to be sure that the same paper type is set for both tray 1 and tray 2 (and be sure that tray 2 is showing up on the list). I had to power the printer back on for it to recognize tray 2. Hope it helps

Set tray (3? ) or other non standard paper type trays to type setting of letterhead and set normal paper tray (2) paper type to plain .
You do this on printer keyboad find menu then find paper handling, tray xxx, paper type. xxxx...set or tick
Via operations panel you can also printout current settings too to see if you have done the change if you do one before and after
There are other settings on your printer that can effect this and driver configuation and doc type setting on pc that can effect this also but try step above first and report back if still having issues. Is it run by a server? Do you abity to change driver settings on your pc?
