On the control panel there should be a button that either says paper select or looks like a bucket with lines in press this and the machine will change paper trays.

Thanks J

My Lexmark T640 does not seem to recognize paper "tray 2". I want to print legal, but it only prints from tray 1. How can I get the printer to recognize and use tray 2 so I can print legal AND letter?

2 things
1st make sure the paper guides are set correctly on the trays for legal make sure it's exactly on legal or it put the tray into universal mode. (To clarfiy the guides in the back which allow you to put legal in the tray.)
2nd Go into menu and then to paper menu and adjust/ confirm the settings for tray 1 and 2. Based on your question tray 1 is letter and tray 2 is legal, so make sure both of the tray size and type are set correct.

I have the sharp al-1642CS and need to print ups full sheet labels for shipping. Tray 1 will not pick up the labels and jams. I can not get the sharp to print via the multi-tray when I send a job from my...

Will the tray not pick them up at all, or do they feed out about 2 inches? If they feed out of the tray and will not get past the curved area you need to open that door where the jam is and make the spring pressure on those springs on each side tighter. I kind of loop the bottom hook of the spring up into the rest of the spring to create more spring pressure on the rolls and then it should work.

How do I print 8-1/2" x 14" paper. I only have one 8-1/2" x 11" tray? Konica Minolta Magicolor 5430DL

On the 5430 DL there is an aux legal tray that can be purchased for legal printing. On a later successor the 5550 a manual feed option was included, however for the 5430 there is no option for printing legal without the extra tray being installed. On a side note, I have this tray and when not printing legal it lets me load an extra 500 sheets of letter paper which is very convenient when I need to print a bunch of sheets overnight.

You just stated the problem yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you using Letter or Legal?? then the tray need to be set to that particular size.

If using Legal set to Legal, otherwise the machine will automatically know you are using the wrong size.

Tray 1 is full on my Sharp AL-1642CS but when it ties to print to tray 1 the 'P' keeps flashing!

pull both trays out.....have a look in tray 2, is there a switch sensor actuator hanging down there a similar one in tray one?
No? They get knocked off and lost very easily

Tray output

You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!

1- check and make sure the guides in the tray are snug against the paper ( set to Letter or Legal whicever you have in the tray)
2- there may be a paper jammend behind the tray
3-right click on the printer on your pc, go to properties
go to settings is it set to what size you have in the tray?
