I have also changed the settings so that when a particular tray finished (i.e. Tray 1 has run out of A4 Plain), the machine should stop and say that the tray is out of paper. However , my problem is, when the A4 Plain paper runs out, it does not stop printing. The paper just automatically changes to letterhead (which I don't want it to do).

HP printers will default to the highest numbered tray that contains plain letter paper. So on a standard 3005 Tray 2 is the default unless you have the paper type set for something other than plain letter. If you have an additional tray, then Tray 3 would become the default tray if it is set to plain paper. In this case, you would set tray 3 to either bond or letterhead so that the printer would only grab from that tray if you request either tray 3 be used or create a job that calls for that type of paper.
If this does not sort it out, post back again with a complete description of the printer including number of trays, what is loaded in the trays and how they are set for both paper size and paper type. This information can be found by printing a configuration page. This is done by pressing the arrow key on the control panel until display reads information, press checkmark (green button) then use down arrow until Configuration page is displayed and then press checkmark again. Page will print that shows all the settings for the printer.
Re: CP2025 cleaning at every possible moment
Talked to HP support and fixed mine by changing Settings/Paper Handling/Tray 2 Type to "Heavy 111-130g"
All paper handling settings as follows:
Default Paper Size:
Default Paper Type:
Tray 1 Size:
Tray 1 Type:
Tray 2 Size:
Tray 2 Type:
Paper Out Handling
Specify Time and Action
Paper Out Time:
Paper Out Action:
Enter on the computer the follow path: 1. enter start menu 2. enter printers and faxes 3. enter by right click into properties 4. enter paper size settings 5. set the paper size for the tray or trays and press update then apply and ok after thet it will work Also see on the printer menu enter the same paper tray settings and set the trays by size but more important is to set the compute settings
push"special function" button, then select "key op prg", then "ok", then enter pin (default is 00000), then select "fax", then "ok", then select "rcv function", then "ok", then "tray selection", then "ok". The rest you should be able to follow your nose.
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
Set tray (3? ) or other non standard paper type trays to type setting of letterhead and set normal paper tray (2) paper type to plain .
You do this on printer keyboad find menu then find paper handling, tray xxx, paper type. xxxx...set or tick
Via operations panel you can also printout current settings too to see if you have done the change if you do one before and after
There are other settings on your printer that can effect this and driver configuation and doc type setting on pc that can effect this also but try step above first and report back if still having issues. Is it run by a server? Do you abity to change driver settings on your pc?
press setup on printer
select preferences and select default tray as 2 and try making copy and also check while receiving fax and also follow this link
