Question about HP LaserJet 2300d Printer

1 Answer

Well in an HP 2300 if both trays 2/3 produce the error than it's definitely not the tray size switches.. but more than likely the top of paper sensor which sits on the power supply board is bad.. if not then it's definitely the engine controller board. Ist try the engine controller board because of cost and easier to perform the repair.. then if the problem has not been fixed then it's the power supply board in which the sensor is attached.. this should work.

Hp laserjet 8150. i have a problem, tray 3 empty, always but have paper in tray 3


CAUSE: This error message indicates the paper present sensor flag in one of the trays does not detect paper in the tray. This could be caused by one of the following:
  • A broken sensor flag
  • The tray paper guides being set too close and restricting the paper from being pulled
  • The tray is not lifting
SOLUTION: Follow the steps below to determine the cause of a false TRAY X EMPTY message. Tray 2 empty
  1. Verify there is paper in the tray.
  2. Open the duplex unit access door just above Tray 2 on the front of the printer.
  3. Check the black-paper present flag by looking in through the duplex access door.
  4. Open and close Tray 2 and observe the tray lifting looking through the duplex unit access door.
The tray lifts but the error is still present
  1. Inspect the paper present flag on the PIU located just behind the pickup rollers. Ensure the flags are present and not damaged.
  2. Remove the tray guides from the tray and reseat them. Ensure the guides are seated correctly and are in the correct slot for the size paper in the tray. Add paper to the tray and try printing again.
  3. Try another known good tray, if available.
The tray does not lift and the error is still present
  1. Remove the tray, remove the paper in the tray, and inspect the lifting plate in the tray for damage. Ensure it will lift freely by hand.
  2. Try another known good tray if available.
Tray 3 empty
  1. Verify there is paper in the tray.
  2. Remove Tray 2.
  3. Open and close Tray 3 and verify it lifts by observing through the Tray 2 cavity.
The tray lifts but the error is still present
  1. Inspect the paper present flag on the PIU located just behind the pickup rollers. Ensure the flags are present and not damaged.
  2. Remove the tray guides from the tray and reseat them. Ensure the guides are seated correctly and are in the correct slot for the size paper in the tray. Add paper to the tray and try printing again.
  3. Try another known good tray if available.
The tray does not lift and the error is still present
  1. Remove the tray, remove the paper in the tray, and inspect the lifting plate in the tray for damage. Ensure it will lift freely by hand.
  2. Try another known good tray if available.
Tray 4 empty
  1. Verify there is paper in the tray
  2. Open Tray 4 and check for an extra **** of paper stored on the left side of the tray. This can cause the tray to stall while lifting and result in a tray empty message.
  3. Defeat the interlock in the vertical transfer unit (VTU). Open and close Tray 4 and watch the tray lift through the VTU door on the lower-right side of the printer.
    NOTE: Follow troubleshooting steps for Trays 2 and 3 when working with the 2 X 500 sheet-input tray.
The tray lifts but the error is still present
  1. Check the tray guides to ensure the guides are seated corrected and are in the correct slots for the paper size in the tray.
  2. Inspect the paper present sensor for damage.
  3. Check for any broken plastic pieces in the tray that may be a broken sensor flag.
The tray does not lift and the error is still present Defeat the VTU interlock on the right side of Tray 4. Open and close Tray 4 and observe the tray lifting.

I get error code 41.3 and a message saying I have the wrong paper size. I have tried the paper handling menu, but nothing I do seems to help. When I have the printer use the open paper holder, it works,...


Generally there are a couple of tray elements that can affect a paper size error. Check to make sure the width and length support elements are located and locked properly. See if a small switch is located on the tray that designates the appropriate paper size being used. I have had users accidentally move the switch from standard to legal and prompt an error that would not be reset until the switch was moved to the correct position. My problem was with an HP 4350 but the two units may have the same switch element.

Hp P4515n - Paper Handling for tray-2 only, gives


I just ran into this same issue with an HP LaserJet P4015n. Worked with HP and the resolution ended up being the following.
Hopefully this will work with the P4515n printer as well.

1. Open EWS page (printer page) in Internet Explorer.
2. Log into printer as administrator
2. Click on Settings tab, Configure device, System Setup
3. You will find Tray Behavior
4. Change tray 2 model to Standard Tray.

This should give you the standard options for the Tray 2 size or default to the size detected.

Error message keeps appearing "paper jam in tray 2" although there is definitely no paper jam.


If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If you don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it.

Konica 7115 copier


not familiar with that machine, but
most of these problems are simple, usually customer errors

1-some have sensors in the bak of the machine where the tray slides in, remove ray and look for paper in the back
2-is there any slides or something to adjust to say it is 8.5x11?
3-switch trays is it recording the correct size- if yes the sensors are ok
4-take alook at the other tray it is probably set for a different size paper, try switching it to letter and see if there is a difference in the way the trays are
4- it could be set wrong in the menu
5-bad sensors

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back
