How do get the machine to automatically change paper trays when empty? I use paper tray 1 (a) and want the machine to automatically switch to paper tray 2 (b) when 1 is empty. Should be capable. Both trays are 8.5X11.

SOURCE: Paper Feed Not Automatically Switching to Multi-Purpose Tray

Sounds like the paper out sensor for the cassette is either broken or jammed. Pull out the cassette tip the machine on its back and you should see a black arm hanging down. This should be able to swing back and fourth freely. Unless it is missing or broken.

SOURCE: When Tray 1 (A4) is empty it is picking up Tray 2 (A4 ? letterhead) and we don?t want that to happen cause we print in bulk!

Hello Uncle123,
I don't have a user manual at my fingers, but you can go into "additional functions". I don't recall if it is within the"common settings" tab or "copy settings" but you can designate any paper tray to be "unique". For example you can designate tray 2 as "colored paper, or recycled paper" .In which case, if you are feeding from tray 1 and it runs out the copier now knows that tray 2 has a type of paper that is different than the current run.Even if the paper size is the same. I hope this helps. Take care. ..............................spinal.........................

SOURCE: Canon IR105 and IR8500 Load paper Problem, Tray Suspend Problem, Paper Pickup and Jam Problem

WOW !!!! that is a list, but I will try to shed some light.

1-are the trays not being sensed in the paperdeck (optional paper tray capacity)
and the ones that work in the copier?/ a) the bord may be bad b) the connector may not have good contact
2-tray suspend

3-registration jam, a) the registration assembly is probably shorting out b) notenough sep causing the paper to rise up on the drum and then jam,

4-the paper sensor in the trays are in the pick up assembly tires, the ones that come down topick up the paper, there is a sensor that is loose but when it hits paper goes up, when no paper the metal plate goes up but has a hole for the sensor to fall trough and does not go up, giving paper empty.

5-I do not have any info on the specs for the corona wires, this is in the service manual

6-Sparking in the coronas is bad and can result in paper jams and holes in the drum, sometimes putting whiteout on the very ends of the coronas help, but it's better to replace, you can get the end blocks seperate.

7-Pre-corona assy' is to charge up the drum for fater copies, some techs do take them out, if all the wires are arcing then it may be your HVT (high voltage transformer) for the coronas going bad.

8-image is skewed only when using ADF if you put it on the glass it should be fine, the problem is the glass is too dry, try spraying some WD40 on the glass and wiping it off, leaving no residue just a slick smooth surface. the paper turns due to the dryness when fed on the glass.

9- Yes you are right there is no room for the paper to skew it would tear or get jammed if it did

hope I was of some help

My HP 4100N printer often automatically selects to print from tray 1 (the manual feed), when I want to print from tray 2 (the automatic feed). How do I set the default tray?


HP Laser Jet 4100 HP Not pulling paper from Tray 2
Action: The 4100 will look at tray 1 first then tray 2 If tray 1 is empty it will pull from tray 2 if the papersize matches the job otherwise back to tray 1 and ask for the paper. Your machine likely thinks the paper in tray 2 is not the size you want. For instance you have LETTER in tray2 But the machine thinks it is legal. The LJ 4100 detects the paper size in tray 2 automatically. If you print a configuration page: MENU them INFORMATION then ITEM then CONFIGURATION PAGE then SELECT. The page will print and show what size paper the machine thinks is in Tray 2 if it says LEGAL and you have LETTER you need to Check The Paper Backstop in TRAY 2. The back stop sets the length of the paper if it is not at Letter (8 1/2 x 11) the machine will not detect LETTER. Even if it just a little bit off or between positions.
If it is set at LETTER then you may have bad switches in the machine that are operated by the tray. Or the arms on the tray that operate the switches are not moving properly. You will find the arms on the rt, side of the tray and feel them change position when you move the backstop.

Hope this helps helps. Please keep us updated and remember to rate this answer. TF

Paper not pulling from tray 2 when tray 1 empties - Lexmark T654


For the majority of the Lexmark printers, all that needs to be done is to set the paper size and type the same for each drawer. Example - drawer 1 & 2 sizes are set to letter, drawer 1 & 2 paper types are set to plain. Set up this way, when drawer 1 empties, the printer will automatically switch to drawer 2 to supply the paper.

How do I have printer switch from empty paper tray 1 to the full 550 paper tray 2


Hi. You need to do tray linking. When one linked tray is empty, paper feeds from the next linked tray. The size and type settings for all trays must be set from the Paper Menu. To set the paper type or size:
1. On the home screen, touch Menu button
2. Touch Paper Menu
3. Touch Paper Size/Type.
Note: To link the multipurpose feeder, Configure MP must be set to Cassette in order for MP Feeder Size or MP
Feeder Type to appear as a menu item.
4. Touch the right or left arrows to select the same size paper from all paper sources to be linked.
5. Touch the right or left arrows to select the same type paper from all paper sources to be linked.
Note: When the Size and Type settings are the same for any trays, the trays are automatically linked.
6. Touch Submit.
Submitting changes appears.
7. Touch Home to return to the home screen.
Hope this helps.

Switching to paper tray 2


The machine will only switch to tray 2 IF BOTH TRAYS are set to the same paper size "OR" if the paper sizes are different, the machine will switch to the lower (14") tray when it recieves a document which is 14" long.
You may have the same paper in both trays.... but do you have them both programmed for the same size??? When you select the top and then the bottom tray are they saying they are the same size.????

Paper Tray Settings


You have Auto Tray Switching acticated (ATS). Unless you specify each tray/paper with different settings it will switch.

Go in to the utility menu and you can find this in the paper tray settings area I believe.

You can turn this off completely to avoid this in the future.

If you look around you can even just tweak the settings for this, but in your case i would just shut it off.
