Question about Minolta Color PagePro PS Plus Laser Printer
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.

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! :)

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.

Selecting which tray is used for printing
You can select how the printer pulls paper from the trays.
Understanding tray order
When the printer receives a print job, it selects the tray by trying to match the requested paper
type and size with what has been loaded in the trays. Using an "autoselect" process, it searches
all available trays for the paper that satisfies the request, starting with the bottom tray and ending
with the top tray (tray 1). The printer begins printing the job as soon as it finds the proper type/
Note The "autoselect" process occurs only if no specific tray is requested for the job. If a specific tray
is requested, the job prints from the requested tray.
If paper is loaded in tray 1 and tray 1 is set TRAY 1 TYPE=ANY and TRAY 1 SIZE=ANY on the
Paper Handling menu, the printer will always pull paper from tray 1 first. See "Customizing
tray 1 operation" on page 47 for more information.
If the search fails, a message appears on the printer control panel display requesting that
you load the correct paper type/size. You can load that paper type/size, or you can override
the request by selecting a different type/size at the printer control panel.
If a tray runs out of paper during a print job, the printer automatically switches to any tray that
contains the same paper type/size.
The autoselect process changes somewhat if you customize tray 1 operation (as explained in
"Customizing tray 1 operation" on page 47) or set tray 1 for manual feed (as explained in
"Manually feeding paper from tray 1" on page 49). See if this works. Good luck !
