WHEN TRAY EMPTY PRINTS OUT OF OTHER TRAY


The user cannot select a paper tray for a print job from within an application. It is also not possible to configure a default paper tray in the Document Defaults, Printing Preferences, Printing Defaults driver options.
This problem may be experienced with an HP PCL5e, PCL5c, or PCL6 LaserJet printer driver on any of the following Operating Systems:
  • Windows NT 4.0
  • Windows 2000
  • Windows XP/.NET

Typical symptoms of this issues include:
  • Paper tray selection grayed out.
  • Cannot select paper tray, only size and type.
  • Not possible to select tray.

SOLUTION: Perform the following steps to clear the NT Forms configuration.
  1. Go to the Printers folder by clicking Start , Settings , and Printers .
  2. Right-click the printer and go to Properties .
  3. Go to the NT Forms tab.
  4. Click the Clear All button.
  5. To save and exit, click the OK button.

SUMMARY: This is expected printer driver behavior. The NT Forms feature allows a user or system administrator to configure a so-called "form-to-tray assignment" for the printer. When this feature is enabled it is not possible to select a specific paper tray for a print job, or to set it as default, because the system is aware of the specific paper size and type loaded in the various printer trays, which makes the source selection redundant. Some applications or environments may require a "form-to-tray assignment" in order to take advantage of certain features. For instance, in an Active Directory environment, this feature has to be enabled for the operating system to be able to report the available paper sizes in the printer to the Active Directory

How do I share files from my computer to my iPhone for printing?


Printer able files have to be in documents format to be printed. The computer may be the only device connected to the printer. However, make an email address on the phone where documents could be emailed to the computer for printing to be achieved. Also, the iphone has a word typing area to gather document texts. Text messaging those documents to a computer that has printer connections would make possible printing.

Page isnt prining out Have new ink in printer


Hi,

Before you can troubleshoot the problem, determine its cause. Do the following steps in order:
1. Print another PDF, such as the first page of Acrobat Help.
  • If a separate PDF file prints correctly, the PDF that doesn't print correctly could be damaged. See "Can't print a specific PDF file" later in this document.
  • If the separate file doesn't print correctly, go to step 2.
2. Print another type of file (for example, a plain text file) from another application (such as Microsoft Word or WordPad).
  • If that other type of file prints correctly, the problem isn't system-wide--it's specific to the Adobe Reader or Acrobat product. However, the problem could come from Reader or Acrobat interacts with the system. Go to step 3 to eliminate some system-related causes of the problem.
  • If that other type of file doesn't print correctly, the problem is system-wide--it isn't specific to Acrobat or PDFs. The problem could be low system resources, insufficient memory on your printer, or a poor connection between your computer and the printer. Go to step 3 to eliminate some likely causes of the problem.
3. Restart your computer, and then print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, your system may have been out of memory or resources.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 4.
4. Turn off your printer for at least 15 seconds to flush its memory. Then turn it back on and print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, the printer's memory was too full or had become corrupt.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 5.
5. Print from another computer.
  • If the file prints correctly from another computer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the printer or the network correctly. Consult your network documentation or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 6.
6. Print a PDF to another printer.
  • If the file prints correctly to a different printer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the original printer. Communication, hardware, or memory problems can cause this kind of connection problem. Make sure that the printer is turned on and connected properly. Then run a self-test on the printer to make sure that it's working correctly. Consult your printer documentation for self-test instructions or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, see "Can't print any file from any application" later in this document.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Hello, the printer will not print out forms either from a adobe pdf file or from the internet; it leaves the page blank or just prints out the grids but no text.Please can you help?


Hi. Try turning off the image sharpening in the print settings.
For Windows, open the file and go to File > Print > Preferences/Properties in the Print window> Image Enhancement tab in the Lexmark 4500 Series Printing Preferences > choose None for Image Sharpening. Hit ok. Click Apply to save settings. Hit print to start printing. For Macintosh, open the file > go to File > Print > Print Settings > Advanced Settings > Image Sharpening > adjust setting to None. Try to print. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.
