SOURCE: WHEN PRINTING - THE PRINTER SAYS TRAY 1 LOAD PLAIN

You have the settinigs on the printer wrong. There are two things you need to do:
1. Open the tray and check that the paper guides are set to 8.5 x 11 (letter). There are both length and width guides in the paper tray, and EXEC size is quite a bit off from letter-it is more than 0.5 inch narrower than letter. It is also shorter than letter.
2. On the printer, use the settings button to navigate to the paper size. (The exact wording may vary; it's been a while since I worked on a 4050. It may be under print settings.) Once you find the paper size menu, configure tray 2-yes, I'm sure-to use letter size, any type. By the way, on HP lasers, tray 1 is the fold down tray on the front, tray 2 is the tray that will hold 500 sheets of paper and is the "drawer" that you load. Don't ask me why they use that numbering system.

Hi there,

It seems like the printer still thinks that the cartridge latch is broken. Did you just replace the latch or did you replace the entire mechanism? Printers aren't as smart as us so even though we perceive something to be fixed, the printer might still think the problem exists. If you just replaced the latch, then try replacing the entire part that's attached to the carriage.
After you replaced the latch, did you unplug the printer from the outlet for at least 60 seconds? If you only unplugged it for a couple of seconds, the printer would have still held somewhat of a charge. However, if you unplug it for a full minute, then it should wipe the memory on the printer.
Another thing to check is if you are doing the maintenance tasks from your desktop or if you are doing it from the printer itself. If you're doing it from the Desktop only, then your computer might not be feeding the necessary information to the printer to tell it that the problem is resolved. If this is the case, uninstall and reinstall the drivers from HP's website.
Hope some of this information is helpful. :)

The Ink at the head of your Printer Cartridges has dried up.
Try this:

Load some plain paper in the printer

Remove the cartridges from the printer and carefully dab the print heads of the cartridges with a damp paper towel. ( when you start to see ink, the ink is starting to flow).

Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Go to:

Start
Control Panel
Printers
RIGHT click on this printer
choose Printing preferences
services
clean print cartridges 9some papers may print)
follow the instructions and do the heavier cleaning as well

Run the calibration function and allow the paper to print.
