Question about Minolta Color PagePro PS Plus Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printing from Tray1 (Multi Purpose Tray) all the time and I would like it to print from tray 2 automatically.

I have a Minolta Color Page Works printer. It used to print from the bottom tray or Tray 2 automatically now it will only print from Tray 1 the Multi Purpose Tray automatically. How can I fix my problem.

these settings need to be done with the RPCS printer driver, go to properties and then custom settings from there you can tell the printer where to print from.

For tray linking to work, both Paper Size AND Paper type must be configured the same for both trays. You probably have the paper sizes the same but types could be different. The is no setting to make tray linking work.. it will do it automatically if the above settings are correct.

SOURCE: grinding noise, no paper feeding from tray

This will work.

If you remove the paper tray you'll notice a black arm hanging down in the middle of the printer...this should be up inside (the cause is too much paper being put in the tray then when the user tries to remove the tray it hooks this and causes it to be in the way of the paper when it rises).

Disconnect the power and remove the toner/drum. Turn the printer upside down and remove the rollers from the purple plastic arm (shove the arm ahead to make this easier). Once you have this disconnected and removed you'll be able to see where the black plastic arm should go. You can push it back up in the printer without too much fuss. Replace the rollers where they go and put everything back together. Voila!

This has happened twice in the past year and both times this has fixed the issue right away. Good luck! :)

SOURCE: paper tray is in the printer,but the printer says missing tray 1

There are two possible solutions: The first is that the lugs on the side of the paper tray are broken, and the printer cannot "see" a paper tray. In this case you need a new paper tray. The other possibility is that the tray and paper size sensor inside the printer is faulty. Often just pushing the contacts can free them, and sometimes the metal prongs that sense the lugs on the side of the paper tray get unseated. Just use your finger to reseat them correctly. If that doesn't work, the sensor board is likely to have failed, and will need replacing

This sounds like a paper size issue. Check your papersize and oriontation in the tray(green selector font right or back left of tray) and check paper settings under the user tools menu for tray 1. let me know if that works, so we can trouble shoot.

Ensure that under the printer preferences the paper type you actually have is the type selected.

Go to printers under control panel, right click the printer :

Select Printer properties. Look under preferences or settings for paper size settings

Also look when you are printing from your program wether under "page setup" you have the correct paper type selected.

Make sure that you have tray 1 set for the correct paper type. Leaving the paper type as unknown will result in very slow printing as the printer will assume that it might be printing on heavy media, envelopes or the like.

My magicolor 2200 keeps asking me to put paper in the mpt (multi purpose tray) when I'm printing form the bottom tray. The resulting print comes out slightly smeared and starts part way down the page. ...

ok seems like 1 of 2 things,,, firstly check your print settings and ensure your selecting the correct try to print from..

turn off machine

might be a stuck sensor, turn off machine look at where u load the paper, close to where the printer pulls it up, there is a small leaf swith there that tell the printer if it has or dont have paper, play ith the switch a bit.. Then turn back on and try again.

I can't print from tray 2 or 3 from either Mac or PC


You need to remove the trys affected, most likely there is a sensor issue.

Remove the trays and check behind them as paper sometimes falls behind blocking the sensors. If so, remove the paper.

Also, check the paper slides in the tray themselves, remove the paper and slide them in and out all the way, put the trays back in the machine and put the paper back in the tray moving the slides right up against the paper and close the door. It should work normally from now on, if not try a reboot one more time.

Brother MFC-8460N ... No Paper response

I had the same problem with a customer, to resolve this issue:

> Go to the printers folder
> Right click on the printer
> Go to printing preferences
> Under the paper source settings change it from autoselect to Tray1 and save the settings.

This will force the printer to print to tray1.

That fixed it for me, hope it works for you too.
