Question about HP LaserJet 2430tn Printer

1 Answer

HP Laserjet 2430n printer won't see the paper in Tray 2. Continues to give in display paper size *letter and *plain but I set it and it just comes back asking again. When you print it won't pickup from tray 2 because it doesn't know the size or type. Replaced the pickup assy and it still does it

Yes I checked the tray throughly. I also changed to paper to legal plain and changed the configuration...still came back on the display panel change paper size...just won't stop asking.

If I put the add-on paper tray 500 sheet that tray works fine.

I was thinking though I might order another paper tray and try it since I replaced the pickup assy and still have problems...what do you think

I also cold reset the printer just in the event something was set wrong...still has problems

How do I change the default on my HP P30005dn to Tray 2?


Normal default on HP is tray 2, however if you do not have that tray set for plain paper letter size the printer will default to whichever tray has letter plain paper installed. You should also check your print driver default settings to ensure that tray 2 is set as default tray.

Tray 1 doesn't feed while tray 2 has paper, after I empty the paper from tray 2, tray 1 work fine.


if you setup tray 1 any type, any size and tray 2 to plain, and letter size, it will allow you to use tray 2 for your plain letter jobs but will pull from the manual feed tray first only if the paper is in the manual feed tray if this makes any sense to you... please mark this as a fixya...

How to make default tray 2 in HP Laserjet p3005n printer


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.

I have HP laser jet 4350dtn heavy duty printer. It is attached with thye network point. And the configuration is done on the server. Then for the client machines I install via from the server since it is...


1 of 2 things. Either the paper type and size is not set right in the printer menu for tray 2. or the physical setting in the tray are not exactly on letter. The printer is looking for letter paper and does not see it in tray 2. If you load tray 1 with paper and press the green button my guess is it will use that paer and tray. First chack to make sure the setting in the tray are exactly on letter, it uses that and little fingers on the left side to tell the printer there is letter paper in the tray.

At work I have a LaserJet and for some reason it will only print from "tray 2" opposed to the normal "tray 1." How do you switch trays?


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.

WHEN PRINTING - THE PRINTER SAYS TRAY 1 LOAD PLAIN PAPER, USE PLAIN EXEC INSTEAD? THE PRINTER IS LOADED WITH 8 1/2 X 11 LETTER SIZE PAPER.


You have the settinigs on the printer wrong. There are two things you need to do:
1. Open the tray and check that the paper guides are set to 8.5 x 11 (letter). There are both length and width guides in the paper tray, and EXEC size is quite a bit off from letter-it is more than 0.5 inch narrower than letter. It is also shorter than letter.
2. On the printer, use the settings button to navigate to the paper size. (The exact wording may vary; it's been a while since I worked on a 4050. It may be under print settings.) Once you find the paper size menu, configure tray 2-yes, I'm sure-to use letter size, any type. By the way, on HP lasers, tray 1 is the fold down tray on the front, tray 2 is the tray that will hold 500 sheets of paper and is the "drawer" that you load. Don't ask me why they use that numbering system.

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.

Iam facing in hp 4050 printer,when i have giving command from tray 2,printer is giving error on display 41.3 unexpected paper size but from tray 1 is working ok.i have done already in paper handling menu...


swap trays and test - if OK then your tray is set up wrong. remove paper and check that it is set for letter. also check the small switch (if there is one) on the Right hand side of the tray that maybe set to customer - change to standard. compare trays so they look the same - and check the settings in the menu for letter / plain on both trays

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
