Re: ricoh ap3800

Try sending A4 or letter size to the bypass. if the same problem is risen then you will most likely have a problem with the bypass itself and nothing you have done or are doing.

The other way to check is to set a 11" x 17" in the second tray and try it that way if that goes through then there is no problem with the way you are doing things and the problem lyes with the bypass section.

Please try these and I hope they are of some help to you

Thanks J

Even though my printer settings are set to print and use the paper in tray 1 - the printer wants to pull from the bypass tray (which always pulls crooked). The printer used to work just fine then the alert...

Two things to check for a problem like this:
1) Driver Settings:
If your computer's drivers are telling the machine to pull from the bypass tray it'll ignore the machine settings. You're kind of on your own here figuring it out, if you can't though then try deleting the printer from the computer and re-installing it (will default settings)

2) Manual Feed sensor:
When you put paper into the bypass try you're activating a flag which tells a sensor there's paper there, if this flag is stuck forcing the sensor to constantly think you have paper there it would always to pull from there. Find the flag, move it back and forth, hit it with some air from a can of air.

Ricoh SP C410dn Paper only prints 11cm and stops in the Bypass T

do not use ohp film in this device as it will jam due to the use of optical paper sensors unless your ohp has a paper backing. you can set up the bypass tray for thick paper type to increase fuser temp to get better fusing etc

Printing on an index card

something else you might try is taping the card to a full-size sheet of paper, so the printer can push it through with ALL the rollers at the same time. not all printers have a roller all the way across, so index cards get snagged by one side, and they'll walk to the opposite side while they're printing.

My printer will only print from bypass tray. Why?

It may be something to do with the paper size settings on printer driver, document print settings or page setup. If for example the computer thinks the paper size is Letter, and the paper in Tray 1/2/3 is A4, it won't print.
