The printer is giving that message as the print job sent to the printer is asking for the correct paper type. Check the program you used and its print setup in that program to make sure the correct paper is selected. Software overrides hardware settings on a printer.Another thing is double check the tray position tab and make sure it is set to letter and locked in that position. If the paper tray is not set it can also think that the paper in the tray is a different paper size.

Told that this is a PCL5 type printer and can be used as a plug n'play, and no need to install a driver. It does work, but will not hold the programming. I only want to use Tray1.


the thing is that with plug and play equipment, when you plug it into the pc and turn it on Usb connections) , there is a small message just above the task bar which says installing driver for printer
it is the way that the pc recognizes the printer in a port
it may be best it you go to the control panel ,printers and devices , add a printer and install it properly

Tray 1 load recycled letter?


Switch off & on once the printer, load papers in both trays, go to system choose file ask to print, when dialog box appears go to properties, select tray2., the shoot print, check its printing or not. If its printing problem in tray1 paper sensor,clean it.Reason why its not taking from tray 2. In menu settings its selected default tray as tray1. if no paper present in tr1 printer ask to press OK choose another tray to print, during this period indicating error.Best to do: clean all paper path sensor tray1 and tray 2 to prevent further errors... Pl revert..best of luck..

I have a Lexmark T630 printer and every time I go to print it beeps and says change tray 1. How to I get it to not beep while printing?


You will need to change your paper handling.
From the machine, go into the Menu-> then Paper Menu -> Change your paper size and type to your machine settings. Example if tray 1 is letter make sure it's set to letter and plain, then confirm each tray setting for each tray attached to the machine.
Also pull the tray(s) out completely and make sure the guides are set correctly. (The guides move so you can put legal, A4 etc.)
I've come across a lot of machines that the guides are off by a fraction which will prompt your machine to display the message you stated.

Printer selects tray1 as default tray. how can this be changed?


Tray 1 by default is set to any size, any type, which means that no matter what you print, it will pull from tray 1. You can change that by setting tray 1 for a specific size and type, such as 8.5" x 11"(Letter) and Plain paper, and then going into the print driver options (Control Panel, Printers & Faxes, right click on the HP 3550 and select Properties) and under the paper input tray, change it to either tray 2 or 3.

WON'T PRINT


There is a Paper Menu option somewhere in the menus on the op-panel. You need to go to the Paper Type option and change the Paper Type for Tray 1 to plain paper. You can also hit the Select button when you get this message and you will print.

Paper does not feed from Tray 1.


Check your printer settings.

Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing

HP P3005 Will not pull from Tray 1


Click File > Print > Properties to check your settings.
To verify that tray 1 is working, put paper in tray 1. Press green check until you see Information Menu. Scroll using arrows until you see Print Menu Map then press green check. If it prints from tray 1, your problem is not with the printer, but with the PC settings.

i has follow this step, but need to press green check button to resume print menu map.

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back
