Default paper tray selection for HP LaserJet 4200tn

Is there any way to set the default paper tray for a HP LaserJet 4200tn. I use letterhead in tray two and in tray 3 I have plain paper. I would like to default to tray 3.

    I was able to set the default by editing the PPD by changing the DefaultInputSlot.
    I changed it from DefaultInputSlot: Tray_2 to DefaultInputSlot: Tray3

1) 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/size.

2) 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.

    Will I get the same results if I just substitute "TRAY 3"? I want tray 3 to be the default.

Press the "Check" button, scroll down to "Paper Handling", press the Check button again, scroll down to Tray 2 Type and press the check button again. Select the type of paper you have in that cassette and confirm by pressing the check button. Do this for tray 3 and your all set.

How do I change the default on my HP P30005dn to Tray 2?


Normal default on HP is tray 2, however if you do not have that tray set for plain paper letter size the printer will default to whichever tray has letter plain paper installed. You should also check your print driver default settings to ensure that tray 2 is set as default tray.

How to make default tray 2 in HP Laserjet p3005n printer


HP printers will default to the highest numbered tray that contains plain letter paper. So on a standard 3005 Tray 2 is the default unless you have the paper type set for something other than plain letter. If you have an additional tray, then Tray 3 would become the default tray if it is set to plain paper. In this case, you would set tray 3 to either bond or letterhead so that the printer would only grab from that tray if you request either tray 3 be used or create a job that calls for that type of paper.

If this does not sort it out, post back again with a complete description of the printer including number of trays, what is loaded in the trays and how they are set for both paper size and paper type. This information can be found by printing a configuration page. This is done by pressing the arrow key on the control panel until display reads information, press checkmark (green button) then use down arrow until Configuration page is displayed and then press checkmark again. Page will print that shows all the settings for the printer.

Every time when printing there is a message MANUAL FEED, load paper and click continue


Please check your printer driver to see if the default tray is tray 2 or other than the manual feed tray and take the paper out of the manual tray.

Use this item to configures the fuser mode associated
with each media type.
Change the fuser mode only if you are experiencing
problems printing on certain types of media. After you
select a type of paper, you can select a fuser mode
that is available for that type. The available selections
might include some or all of the following modes:
NORMAL: Used for most types of paper.
HIGH 1: Used for rough paper.
LOW: Used for transparencies.
HIGH 2: Used for paper that has a special or rough
finish.
The default fuser mode is NORMAL for all print media
types except transparencies (LOW), and rough paper
(HIGH 1).
CAUTION
Do not change the fuser mode for transparencies.
Failure to use the LOW setting while printing
transparencies can result in permanent damage to
the printer and fuser. Always select Transparencies
as the Type in the printer driver and set the tray type
at the printer control panel to TRANSPARENCY.
When selected, RESTORE MODES resets the fuser mode
for each media type back to its default setting.
Hope this helps

Tray 3 is not showing up at all in the printer properties dialog box. Any suggestions?


Have you re-installed the driver recently? Perhaps you didn't install the correct one. for example '4200tn' (the "t" standing for 'tray"). If you have only installed the regular 4200 driver, then tray 3 will not show up by default
However, you can add it to the current driver as an option.
"Right click" the printer icon
Select "properties"
Select "device settings"
under "installable options"
Click on "tray 3 -not installed" to open drop down menu. click "installed"

Please rate my solution :)
