From the control panel of the printer, do the following:
1. arrow down once to highlight the 2nd item: "paper handling".
2. press the check button (turquoise color) to select this option.
3. arrow down 2x's until you highlight the "tray 2 size".
4. hit the check button to select this item.
5. You should see a size that is "letter" and there should be a ' * ' asterisk which means that is the default setting. If you see other paper sizes as well, then arrow up or arrow down to highlight the preferred size, and then press the check button to insert the asterisk ' * ' which will set that as the default.
6. you change the paper type as well as paper size for the other trays in the same fashion. Most HP printers will select paper according to the SIZE as well as the TYPE. The printer can "sense" the paper size in the paper cassette tray by the stops that hold the paper. Therefore the printer will choose that paper based upon the SIZE and what you define as its type.

I cant get my printer HP2055 dn to print letter paper..it just goes to the legal tray (3). I also can't figure out how to get to the menu on the printer to see if the trays are set correctly.


Go to your menu and select paper handling. From there you can reset the paper settings. If paper will not pull from tray 2 you probably have worn out feed rollers.

The pickup rollers are worn out. Replace them and your problem will be gone. While you are sourcing them, use some alcohol. This may give them a little more life.

Business cards get stuck in HP 4650


The card stock is most likely too heavy for the 4600. If you check the owners manual, you will most likely find this is "Out of media specifications".

Other color HP laser printers like the 2500 cannot move card stock well either.

HP will tell you that 'if the printer moves paper perfectly' it's not broken.

My LaserJet4250n Printer keeps printing a page recurrently. Except the former job is cancelled Manually, it prints the previous instead of the currently sent job. Moreover,it displays the following...


I think what is happening is when you get the error, the printer automaticaly reprints the page it was on when it got an error condition that makes it think it didn't print the page correctly. The clearing paper path message comes up after it thinks it had a jam. Displaying load plain paper could be because either the printer is not configed for the correct type of paper you have in the tray you are trying to prin form(push the green check button, arrow downt to paper handling and see what your trays are set for.) Also there is a blue switch on the tay(looking for front of tray it will be on the right hand side of tray rail) the switch says standard or custom. The switch should be in the standard position.
Are you getting any errors or jams, if so, tell me what they are.

Envolpe feed problem


I would first off try cleaning the feed roll in that tray well. That really sounds like slipping.
Go through all your programs and make sure that the driver machine and program you are running has the envelope settings the same.
Be sure they all match. Example. Make sure all the programs you are running through, have the settings for # 10 envelope, consistancy is needed for running envelopes. They are problematic.
