    Hi Fotohamed,



    amazingly quick reaction, thanks. I found a way to empty the printer's memory, and installed the printer again. Although printing from various network printer succeeded the error message still sounds, and I have to manually remove every printjob after printing

"Paper detected does not match paper size. or type selected. Make sure the paper size is correct to continue the job" This is now on the display window. Nno changes were made. Help!


You give no details what job has been sent to the printer before that. Probably your printer settings about the paper are some standard for your area like A4 for example, but you are trying to print a file, received from a place on earth, where the paper used in printers is different format and the file has been prepared for print on Legal, for example. To reset the process, find the print job in your Devices and Printers folder and delete it. Then power cycle the printer. Then check the document and make ajustments to it fitting the printer settings. Then print it again.

You have a mismatch paper size. Document is not same as paper you have in copier. Try printing 8 1/2 by 11 document if doesn't print check printer preferences and adjust settings. Check copier paper trays make sure don't have special settings on them

T632 printer error : 34 short paper. What does that mean? Don't see 34 as a valid error code.


This error message means that the printer has determined that the length of the paper in the source specified on the second line of the display is too short to print the formatted data. For auto-size sensing trays, this error occurs if the guides are not in the correct position.

Please try to do the following


? Press Go to clear the message and continue printing. The printer does not automatically reprint the page that prompted the message.

? Make sure the Paper Size setting in the Paper Menu is correct for the size paper you are using. If MP Feeder Size is set to Universal, make sure your paper is large enough for the formatted data.

? Press Menu to open the Job Menu and cancel the current job. Please see also the media guidelines on the user manual p.29

In our office we have a HP Laser Jet P4015X printer. When I go to the option of printing - properties and then click on paper source and then click on manual feed tray one - it automatically defaults to...


I am not sure how to get the "Standby mode" back, but one thing you may want to investigate is "JOB STORAGE"

Job storage allows you to send your job to the printer....have the printer wait until you get to the printer and then retrieve your job when you are ready to...This is also great for printing confidential information when you don't want it to just spit out from the printer where there could be someone else around.

See page 162 of the user guide here: http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01436366/c01436366.pdf

for some more details on job storage.

Good Luck

HP Lazer 4300dtn keeps trying to print from tray 1. How can I set the default to tray 2?


Selecting which tray is used for printing

You can select how the printer pulls paper from the trays.

Understanding tray order

When the printer receives a print job, it selects the tray by trying to match the requested paper

type and size with what has been loaded in the trays. Using an "autoselect" process, it searches

all available trays for the paper that satisfies the request, starting with the bottom tray and ending

with the top tray (tray 1). The printer begins printing the job as soon as it finds the proper type/

size.

Note The "autoselect" process occurs only if no specific tray is requested for the job. If a specific tray

is requested, the job prints from the requested tray.

 If paper is loaded in tray 1 and tray 1 is set TRAY 1 TYPE=ANY and TRAY 1 SIZE=ANY on the

Paper Handling menu, the printer will always pull paper from tray 1 first. See "Customizing

tray 1 operation" on page 47 for more information.

 If the search fails, a message appears on the printer control panel display requesting that

you load the correct paper type/size. You can load that paper type/size, or you can override

the request by selecting a different type/size at the printer control panel.

 If a tray runs out of paper during a print job, the printer automatically switches to any tray that

contains the same paper type/size.

The autoselect process changes somewhat if you customize tray 1 operation (as explained in

"Customizing tray 1 operation" on page 47) or set tray 1 for manual feed (as explained in
"Manually feeding paper from tray 1" on page 49). See if this works. Good luck !

Ignore the error and continue printing. The print job might still be acceptable even if the paper size and paper type settings are not an exact match.
  1. Press Enter on the control panel to clear the error message.
  2. Try the print job again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.
    Use the HP product software, also known as the printer driver, to change the print settings for your paper size and type depending on your version of Microsoft Word.
    1. In Microsoft Word, click File , and then click Print .
    2. Make sure that your HP product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then clickProperties .
    3. Click the Features tab, or the Paper/Quality tab.
    4. Select a paper size from the Size drop-down list.If the required paper size is not in the drop-down list, follow these steps to create a custom paper size.
      1. Select Custom from the drop-down list.
      2. In the Custom Paper Size dialog box, type a name for the new custom size.
      3. In the Width and Height boxes, type the dimensions.
      4. Select the unit of measurement, and then click Save .
      5. Click OK to close the Custom Paper Size dialog box, and then click OKagain to close the Properties dialog box. NOTE: You must exit the Properties dialog box to apply your changes.
      6. Open the Properties dialog box again, and then select the new custom size from the Size drop-down list.
    5. Select the paper type.
      1. In the Paper Type or Type is drop-down list, click More .
      2. Click the desired paper type, and then click OK .
    6. Select the paper source from the Paper Source drop-down list.
    7. Change any other settings, and then click OK to close the Properties dialog box.
    8. Try the print job again.
      Paper mismatch errors occur because the printer scans the width of the paper before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the printer, the printer reports a 'Paper Mismatch' or 'Paper too Narrow ' error.The error message might also display when you load the correct paper, just reinstall the printer driver if above procedure does not helps. Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
