Question about HP Officejet Pro L7780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

2 issues- in Preferences under Printers, then drivers, both two sided and optional paper input tray items are checked. I still cannot print 2 sided. Unit says its not enabled. Try to print on legal size, prints on letter. Legal paper is in 2nd tray, and i manually went through control panel on printer to change all settings to use 2nd tray as default, paper size-legal etc. Had tons of problems with initial set up and tech support-needed firmware update. These things have never worked from the start.

HOW TO TAKE BROTHER PRINTER OFF OF MANUAL FEED OPTION


Hi there!
The message that ask you to manually feed the paper will appear if you have recently printed on a different type of media.
Does this happen from only one application like Microsoft Word? If it does try printing a test page or a document from other application like Notepad or Wordpad.
If the same issue occurs go to the Printers folder (under control panel) then right click on your Brother printer icon, left click on Properties, click on Printing Preferences and make sure that Tray 1 is selected for the tray, Plain paper for paper type. If changes have been made make sure to click on the apply button to apply the changes.
If it only happens to one application like Microsoft Word. Click on File ( or the orb icon on the upper left hand corner) then Print, then Print again click on Printing Preferences and make sure Tray 1 is selected and Plain Paper.
Hope this helps! Thanks

How do i align head on printer


Hi Good day!! To Align read this

1. Raise the input tray, which you may fold over the top for compact storage. Lower the output tray at the bottom.


2. Slide the "paper-width guide" on the input tray to the left. This is the small, adjustable tab situated where you will place the stack of paper.


3. Load a small stack of paper into the input tray. Make sure short side is forward and the print side is up. For some paper, it makes no difference which side is up. Slide the stack down until it stops.


4. Slide the paper-width guide to the right, snug up against the stack of paper to ensure proper alignment.

Method 2:

1. click start
2. click printer and faxes
3. right click your installed printer and then properties
4. click printing preferences
5. click maintenance tab
there you should see alignment option click it

How can i print both sides of paper on my magiccolor5550


IF you have the optional duplex unit installed on your printer then when you go to print something, your printer setup screen should have a duplex/2 sided printing box you can check. This will be under printing preferences or properties. If you do NOT have the optional duplex option then you have to manually duplex. That means on say a 2 page document that you want 10 copies of you have to print 10 copies of page 1. Then take those 10 copies and place them back into the paper tray and print 10 copies of page 2 onto the backs of page 1.
Those are you 2 choices for duplex printing.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Printer selects tray1 as default tray. how can this be changed?


Tray 1 by default is set to any size, any type, which means that no matter what you print, it will pull from tray 1. You can change that by setting tray 1 for a specific size and type, such as 8.5" x 11"(Letter) and Plain paper, and then going into the print driver options (Control Panel, Printers & Faxes, right click on the HP 3550 and select Properties) and under the paper input tray, change it to either tray 2 or 3.

If I put paper into the tray that opens on the long side of the printer it does not print. only from the smaller paper tray on the rear of the machine


Check your printer driver in Printers & Faxes under "Preferences" and "Properties" for this printer. See if you have the small or manual feed tray specified aas default. You need to make the tray you want the default tray for the driver, or you will have to tell each print job to go to that tray before you press OK on print command dialog screen.

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back

Printout a copy of your printer configuration. Press the right-side of the MENU button once, then the right-side of the ITEM button twice, and press the SELECT button once. This will print out a configuration page. In the lower right part of the information on this page, it will give you stats on the Paper Trays and Options. Standard settings on these should be "Default Paper Size: LETTER, Tray 2 (LETTER). If either of these says anything different, I would do a cold-reset on the printer to reset it to factory defaults. If you have a network card installed, you need to pull it out before doing this. To do a cold reset, turn the printer off, then hold down the GO button and turn the printer on. Wait about 5 seconds, then release the GO button. Also, you need to check your print setup on your PC. I am assuming you have a WindowsXP machine. Click START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS&FAXES. Right-click your printer icon and select PROPERTIES. Click the PRINTING PREFERENCES button at the bottom. Click the PAPER tab. Check the boxes at lower left. "Size is should be Letter", "Source is & Type is should both be Auto Select". Click OK, click OK, and exit the Printers Window. Lastly, I would make sure that you have Letter size selected from the application you are trying to print from. Hope this helps.
