Re: HP Color LaserJet 2840

Is it possible that you have the default tray set as "tray 1" (the one on top) and the paper is actually in tray 2 (the one on the bottom?)

If so, you should be able to press the "check" button & the printer will accept the paper in the bottom tray.

I need to load paper and I can't seem to be able to follow the instructions on the paper tray very!

The 2840 can have an optional paper tray at the bottom of the printer.. perhaps that one is empty?
Otherwise, you place the paper on the open tray that drops down in front when you open it, and extend and adjust the guides.
