HP LaserJet 4200 - need help resetting default tray selections
I got a new computer 3 weeks ago, going from XP to Windows 7. Before this, my HP LaserJet 4200 printer would automatically pull from Tray 1 unless it was empty, in which case it pulled from Tray 2. Now I can only get it to pull from Tray 1 if I manually select it when going to print. I've searched online and tried various suggestions for resetting this default (as has our IT guy) but nothing works. HELP!

Are you using Window 7 64 bit or 32 bit? Re-install drivers appropriate for that version of your operating system. Also look at the "Paper Handling" section in the printer menu. Be sure both trays are set for "Plain" paper.

The problem could be that you're using Microsoft Windows XP. Microsoft discontinued this program a long time ago and doesn't even offer support for it anymore. The new programs are often too powerful for XP. Before you upgrade your OS, and I suggest you do when you can, go up on the HP website and search how to reset your printer to factory defaults. If you can't find it, just re-download the software for your printer. That should reset your printer to factory defaults.

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.
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"
