DEinstall the printer from your PC and reinstall it with newer drivers. Try PCL 5 instead of PCL 6

I got a error code C-0204 and I`ve checked the tray 2 and is everything ok, but i still receiving this message and i cannot print. Please any help?


C0204 as I see you already know is a tray 2 elevator failure. Meaning the machine does not see tray 2 lifting up the paper. This is usually caused by improper paper loading, elevator sensor failure or lift motor failure. You can still use the copier/printer if you leave tray 2 open and inch or 2. Just use the other trays until repairs can be made.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Printing from wrong tray


I suffered from the same problem for a long time. We got Xerox Phaser 8550 and 8560 here. I choose on computer "tray 2" but the printer just print from tray 1 which is empty.

Today i figured it out! It's some configuration at the printer. So go to "Paper tray setp" -> "Tray 1 mode" and "Tray 2 mode" -> change to "static".

I figure it's like this. Before it was "dynamic", it probably means the printer decides it's better to use tray 1 even though you choose tray 2 - and this decision is stupid. Changing it to "static" fixes this.

Let me know whether this works for you too!

I want to print from Tray 2 where I have letter size paper. The printer is telling me to load paper into tray 1 -Error message is 41.3 Unexpected Paper size. I need the printer to select from tray 2 unless...


Assuming the printer is otherwise working ok and we are talking about a Windows operating system....

When you choose the Print command from the drop-down menu in your application, instead of just proceeding, choose "Properties" or "Preferences" in that window. This should open up another dialog window from which you can choose additional printing options. It may be under Advanced or Tray Select, etc.

You can also get to the printer dialog windows by clicking on the Start button, then Settings, then Printers and Faxes, then double-clicking on the printer icon in that window for your printer and proceeding from there.

Hp laserjet must manually push button to print


Hi,

Please print a configuration page from the control panel of the printer
- Menu > Information menu > print configuration.
- Check for paper handling details.
Following setting should reflect.
Tray 1: Any size / Any Type
Tray 2: A4 size / Plain Type

If the above settings are not reflecting in the configuration page, please change accordingly by browsing on the control panel of the printer to:
Paper Handling Menu >
Tray 1 Size: Any
Tray 1 Type: Any
Tray 2 Size: A4
Tray 2 Type: Plain

Let me know if that helps to solve the issue.

Regards,
Nikhil.

Receiving a "load paper" error message; has to do with paper size


Don't know this printer that well. Open tray one and look in the back and see if there is wheel or slider where you can change the paper size.

Paper size won't print


First customize the paper size in the Page Setup. Secondly when you send command for print, change the paper size to custom size from the Printer Properties and click print. On the other hand, you can select the paper size from the printer's menu itself after sending the print command. Please make sure that the right driver of the printer is installed on your computer.

Hope it will help and fix your problem.
