SOURCE: settings in HP Printer LJ 4100.

The 4100 will look at tray 1 first then tray 2 If tray 1 is empty it will pull from tray 2 if the papersize matches the job otherwise back to tray 1 and ask for the paper.
Your machine likely thinks the paper in tray 2 is not the size you want. For instance you have LETTER in tray2 But the machine thinks it is legal.
The LJ 4100 detects the paper size in tray 2 automatically. If you print a configuration page:
MENU them INFORMATION then ITEM then CONFIGURATION PAGE then SELECT.
The page will print and show what size paper the machine thinks is in Tray 2 if it says LEGAL and you have LETTER you need to Check The Paper Backstop in TRAY 2.
The back stop sets the length of the paper if it is not at Letter (8 1/2 x 11) the machine will not detect LETTER. Even if it just a little bit off or between positions.

If it is set at LETTER then you may have bad switches in the machine that are operated by the tray.
Or the arms on the tray that operate the switches are not moving properly.
You will find the arms on the rt, side of the tray and feel them change position when you move the backstop.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: WHEN PRINTING - THE PRINTER SAYS TRAY 1 LOAD PLAIN

You have the settinigs on the printer wrong. There are two things you need to do:
1. Open the tray and check that the paper guides are set to 8.5 x 11 (letter). There are both length and width guides in the paper tray, and EXEC size is quite a bit off from letter-it is more than 0.5 inch narrower than letter. It is also shorter than letter.
2. On the printer, use the settings button to navigate to the paper size. (The exact wording may vary; it's been a while since I worked on a 4050. It may be under print settings.) Once you find the paper size menu, configure tray 2-yes, I'm sure-to use letter size, any type. By the way, on HP lasers, tray 1 is the fold down tray on the front, tray 2 is the tray that will hold 500 sheets of paper and is the "drawer" that you load. Don't ask me why they use that numbering system.

SOURCE: Hp P4515n - Paper Handling for tray-2 only, gives

I just ran into this same issue with an HP LaserJet P4015n. Worked with HP and the resolution ended up being the following.
Hopefully this will work with the P4515n printer as well.

1. Open EWS page (printer page) in Internet Explorer.
2. Log into printer as administrator
2. Click on Settings tab, Configure device, System Setup
3. You will find Tray Behavior
4. Change tray 2 model to Standard Tray.

This should give you the standard options for the Tray 2 size or default to the size detected.

How do I change the default on my HP P30005dn to Tray 2?


Normal default on HP is tray 2, however if you do not have that tray set for plain paper letter size the printer will default to whichever tray has letter plain paper installed. You should also check your print driver default settings to ensure that tray 2 is set as default tray.

Copies rotated 90 degrees from original


Hello pt,
I am 95% sure I know what's up. The paper trays of your copier are easily changed to hold many paper sizes(except the first tray which has the limitation of not beeing able to hold 11x17 {ledger}). Each paper tray has a blue dial at the front right corner of the tray which you can observe if you press the large gray button on the front of the tray you would use to add paper. The tray/cassette will pop out when you press the button. If the paper size on the dial does not match the actual paper size in the tray. If this happens the copier will either jam or turn the image 180 *. This is a common problem for letter (81/2 x 11) as there are 2 settings for that size paper. You could load it either short edge feed (landsape) or long edge feed (portrait). I feel confident that someone has loaded the letter paper in the paper tray one way, but the blue dial at the front right corner of the tray is dialed to tell the copier that the paper is loaded defferently or a different size. When there is a mismatch between what the dial says (what the copier reads and acts on) and the actual oreintation of the paper you will get this problem. There are 2 settings for letter size, and since you have a digital copier, the copier will scan the image, look at the paper sources, and turn the image to try to fit the image to the size it "believes" is in the tray. Just make sure the paper in the tray is truly oriented to match what you have the dial size set to. You will need to look closely (but your eyes are probably better than mine) and make sure you have that you have set the correct 8 1/2 x 11 size. This will fix your problem. Please let "FIXYA " know I helped you. Have agood weekend!!!!!!!!! :-) SPINAL

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

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.

Load A4


A4 is for european size, if you are printing on a letter size this is a mismatched.
you need to change your files printer properties to A4 or letter size, or change your printer paper size.
better yet cancel this document and send it again , this time by checking the printer properties was set to your desired paper size

I dont get prints when I give print command but when I use the


What does it say in the display?..load paper plain letter....load MP feeder? I think the problem is the following. On the menu right arrow over to the paper menu. Hit select...it then gives you sub menus...paper type...paper size. Go to paper size...specify the tray your using...most likely tray one. Hit select and see what size paper its set on. I'm assuming your trying to print on letter size. If it says something else like legal...executive..A4...change it in the menu to letter. If it changes to letter hit select to save the setting. Now if it won't change in the menu pull open the paper tray. The back paper guide is real sensitive on these machines. You have to make sure the geen/blue tab on the back is set exactly into the letter size slot on the tray. That slot will be slightly bigger than the rest of the teeth you see on the bottom of the tray. If you have it set right then there should only be the 2 bottom tabs extending on the outside left side of the tray. Those tell the printer what size paper is in the tray. If theres 3 sticking out...you still don't have it set right for letter size. Okay..the last thing. Something that goes bad on those machines is the tray card. Its where those 2 tabs on the side of the machine I mentioned interface with the printer. They can go bad. You can either replace that card..or trick it. To trick it go back to the paper menu...paper size tray 1. Open the tray...and close it again. The setting on the screen will change to another size...do that again or until it changes to letter size. The leave it alone. You may have to do that everytime you add paper an reinsert the draw unless you replace that card. Hope this helps!
