First your computer selects the printer to output to, so make sure your default printer is selected.
Next, within your printer you may have selected a different page size for output as a default.
The printer it self should allow you to load and auto detect paper size. If this feature is not enabled see if it is a choice.
Also whatever you are trying to print check page setup in the program you are using make sure to ensure they match.
If you normally print on letter sized paper, then some program you are using is trying to print on A4 paper (PDF files often the culprit) and the default on most printers is that if they do not have the paper loaded it will ask for it from the MP tray. You can check your printer settings as you may be able to tell the printer to automatically sub letter paper when A4 is requested.
When you are in the application that you are going to print from. Go to the menu bar, click on File - Page Setup. Here you should be able to change the paper size you wish to print out in. If you want to set the paper size by default to A4, then you will need to (Windows7) click on the Start button - Devices and Printers, select the printer that you want to change the paper size, right click on the printer - Printer Preferences, a dialog box appears, select the paper size you want in the paper size drop down list, click - Apply - OK. This should then have set the paper size to A4 by default.
Please determine what size you are trying to print (A4, Letter, Legal, etc.). The printer is requesting A4 sized paper in the maunal paper feeder becuase either you selected manual feed or the setting for the default try (usually tray 1) is not set to the correct paper size. In your case, make sure the green slide adjustment on tray 1 is set to A4.
ensure that your printer settings are set for A4 paper. not just in the software you are printing from.
if you set A4 in your word processor programme it does not mean that is what will be used by your printer. go to your printer icon and click properties and ensure that the printer has A4 as default paper.
If you are in Canada or US then you need to set the default paper size to Letter not A4. Most if not all software you use likely sends the print job in letter format. Because the printer is set in A4 it stops and waits for that size.
Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menu next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
Don't set by using the "Print" option.
Go to [Start]
[Printers and Faxes]
right-click on the HP printer entry
! Don't select "Printing Preferences"! from there
Select [Advanced] tab
Select [Printing Defaults]
(I know, the screen looks the same, but it functions differently this way)
Change paper size to "Letter"
[OK, OK, OK]
Need to set A4 size default on the printer driver itself. Go to Printers and Faxes / Konica Minolta 2490MF right click/ Printing preferences / Create a "Easy Set" with a new name. Set all paper sizes to A4. Save the new settings to the new Easy Set. Click apply.
