First what size is tray 1 set for and the type. generally tray 1 is set for letter size and the type is plain and usually is the normal default configuration.
also check the tray guides for proper setting letter size..

Also if possible run a configuration page to see how your current paper handling settings are being read by your printer.

the MP Tray is generally setup as ANY Size and ANY type always.

check your paper handling setup settings..there are additional steps, let me know.

4200 PRINTER Only wants to print out of tray 1


First you need to verify that tray 2 will print from diagnostics test. Use the arrow keys to scroll down to diagnostics and press arrow key, then use arrows move to paper path test and press arrow again. The default paper path test is tray 2 single copy so just select print paper path test and see what happens. If printer prints from tray 2 then we know tray 2 works and that means you either have a print driver that is forcing printing from tray 1 or your settings on the printer for tray 2 are not correct for what you are printing. Check to make sure the paper size shows correctly and make sure that the switch on the right side of the paper tray towards the back is set for standard and not custom.

Tray 1 load recycled letter?


Switch off & on once the printer, load papers in both trays, go to system choose file ask to print, when dialog box appears go to properties, select tray2., the shoot print, check its printing or not. If its printing problem in tray1 paper sensor,clean it.Reason why its not taking from tray 2. In menu settings its selected default tray as tray1. if no paper present in tr1 printer ask to press OK choose another tray to print, during this period indicating error.Best to do: clean all paper path sensor tray1 and tray 2 to prevent further errors... Pl revert..best of luck..

How to set printing to tray #2? HP Laser Jet printer won?t stay printing on tray 2- They do a lot of printing from this printer in the wire room and for some reason it will not stay printing on tray 2-...


Thanks for the inquiry.
Print a configuration page from the menu to determine what Tray 2 is set to.Pull Tray 2 and make sure the rear paper stop is set to Letterhead. Make sure it snaps into place and is not broken or loose. If it's broken you may have to replace the tray.
On your computer got to the printer driver icon and right click for properties. Make sure tray 2 is set to 8 1/2 x 11. Tray 2 should now be the default tray unless tray 1 (Manual Feed Tray) is open and then it will pull from it first.
Let us know how this works. We need to eliminate these setup issues 1st and more steps can be taken if necessary.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.

HP Laserjet 5000dn


if you using office go to page setup and select the tray(s) that you want to use for the first page and other pages ( both must be the same ) unless you only want the first page as letter head and the rest on plain paper or something along those lines ?

Also if you go into the properties of the printer and go to advanced and then click on the printing defaults button and see if the options in there are the same or different to whats in printing preferences.

If they are set to tray 1 then it will default to tray 1

Printer only sends paper to tray 1 when printing from procomm...


Sounds like a Procomm issue. Since I am not familiar with Procomm I can help you any further. But here is my analysis: All other application except for Procomm prints to tray 2. That is because all those applications use the setting as configured in your printer properties in Windows. What Procomm seems to be doing is trying to load a special paper from the manual feed tray, that is tray 1. You will have to check with in this Procomm application where you can change the printer properties so you can specify it to use tray 2 as the default. This is all within Procomm and has nothing to do with Windows nor your printer.

My HP LaserJet 4200 prints fine from tray 2, but will NOT print envelopes from tray 1. It WILL print on regular paper from tray 1, but will not print envelopes. What gives? I've already rebooted the


Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?

I hope this helps.
