Question about Lexmark T630 Laser Printer

Selecting a default paper source for a specific program

I need to set a default paper souce for use by our Sage MMS program as tray 2 (so that we can print invoices exclusively from this tray). However, other packages need to default to using tray 1 - so that we don't get "ordinary" data typed on top of invoice paper.

How do I do it - every time I try and set Tray 2 as the default source via "Printers and Faxes" I get the message "There are one or more conflicting settings. One of the conflicting settings is Paper Source: Tray 2 Tray 2 not installed".

Any ideas would be gratefully received!

Insert tray 1


You can set the default paper source for all print jobs. Tray 1 is the default factory settings, only an installed paper source will appear as a menu setting. A paper source selected by a print job will override the Default Source setting for the duration of the print job. Check the word processor print settings, make sure that it matches with the printer paper menu settings. To do this you may click print and click on properties button. Click on the paper tab and you can set the input options like paper size, paper tray (source) and paper type.

HP Lazer 4300dtn keeps trying to print from tray 1. How can I set the default to tray 2?


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/

size.

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 !

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.

Paper in the main tray catches and then tries to go into the printer diagonally. I switched the button to the paper tray in front but usually it defaults back to the main tray.


It's most like that there's something stuck (such as a bit of paper) that's causing the paper to skew like this so first port of call is to try and check the printer over for any errant blockages like this from all angles...

The paper tray path from the bottom is tricky to get to but it is possible and you'll probably need someone to carefully hold the printer on it's front while you examine behind the green flap. Whatever you do, don't pull on anything or you could break things.

As a work around though, the other tray can be defaulted to by doing the paper selection on the front as you already are but also on your computer(s) but selecting:

  1. START
  2. Printers & Faxes
  3. right click on [MP500 printer]
  4. Choose "Printing preferences"
  5. Setup the Paper source to use the "Auto Sheet Feeder" rather than cassette.
If you're using the printer via a machine that's sharing it you can default new machine connections by doing the same thing on the sharing machine except you get to printer preferences via:

  1. START
  2. Printers & Faxes
  3. Right click and choose "Properties"
  4. Choose the "Advanced" tab
  5. Click on "Printing Defaults"
  6. ... from here on in it's as above setting paper source, etc...

Hope that helps...

Won't print to right tray


I had this problem and solved it like this:

  1. Right click on printer driver in printers and faxes.
  2. Select printing preferences
  3. Choose paper quality tab
  4. Set paper size (A4 in my case)
  5. Set paper source to printer-auto-select. This is different from the default "Automatically select"

As long as tray 1 is empty, tray 2 should now kick in. Setting the paper source as tray 2 didn't work at all.

You seem to have to set this on each client computer though - even if you are sharing the printer over a network (4200n).

Paper source


I would suggest checking printer properties in the computer and ensure the paper size and source is Letter and set to Automatic Choose. Another choice may be to deleted the printer driver and re-install it. You can also go into the menu options until you get to Set factory defaults, press Select, then try the print job again.
I really suspect a program is controlling this from the computer.
To get a list of the existing printer settings, Select Menu and use the Right Arrow button until you get to Printer Menu Settings. The printed report should tell you what your actuall settings are. Maybe the default is set to Custom, instead of Letter.
The Set Factory Defaults option should fix most problems.
