Question about HP LaserJet 5si Printer
I can't change the default to tray 2 on my HP 5Si. It keeps printing to Tray 1
Several suggestions: 1. What operating system are you using? If it is Windows, then the printer tray can be selected in the Settings/Printers/Properties/Paper/PaperSource Note! You must have the correct driver installed. 2. The ESC&l#H sequence allows embedded commands to select trays. The info in the 5si Printer Users Guide (approx page 7-14)has some troubleshooting. The 5si printers at my workplace have automatic tray rollover. When one tray goes empty, it moves to the next tray with the correct size. Hope this helps.
Your issue is in defining which paper tray you want to use from the application side. Depending on your app I'm guessing MS Office when you've selected the 5Si in the printer select menu the print driver will know what tray's are available. The user must select the correct tray for a particular document and these setting will hold for this document. Otherwise the default for both trays with letter in them is to pull from the lower tray and when that runs out or is unavailable to pull from the next tray up with letter inserted. This link explains where the printer will pull from depending on how you set up both the app and/or control panel.
