HP PCL5c paper source options for HP M2727

I require the manufacturer code for the HP M2727 series to select paper source/tray options.

I have located the generic paper source options for PCL5c which are:
E&l1H - Tray 2
E&l2H - Manual feed
E&l4H - Tray 1
E&l5H - Tray 3
E&l8H - Tray 4

However, these options do not work, and Tray 3 prints every time. Regardless of form or document printed. PCL5c for paper source is required for a 3rd party application we host on a Linux ES3 server.
This code is located within the printcap file.

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

Hp c6180 won't print from 4x6 photo paper tray


If you put regular paper in the tray as it is asking does the printer use the regular paper to print the picture? If so, be sure the 4x6 photo paper tray (with photo paper) is pushed all the way in, and when you select print there should be an option (probably hidden in a submenu) to select the photo tray as the paper source. If you are printing from Adobe Acrobat, I have not found a reliable way to get the c6180 to use the photo paper tray. I hope this helps.

Printer selects tray1 as default tray. how can this be changed?


Tray 1 by default is set to any size, any type, which means that no matter what you print, it will pull from tray 1. You can change that by setting tray 1 for a specific size and type, such as 8.5" x 11"(Letter) and Plain paper, and then going into the print driver options (Control Panel, Printers & Faxes, right click on the HP 3550 and select Properties) and under the paper input tray, change it to either tray 2 or 3.

Hello Michelle,

You have to go into your print settings of the application in use and select "Paper Type/Quality", then from the drop down menu you will see "Source" as an option, from there select "PHOTO TRAY".

Lexmark t640: paper jam in the back door. I can see the edge of the paper. How do I release the tension on the rollers so I can slide it out? Now it is in there tight and to grab it just tears off a piece...


Hope this helps....
Explanation of the paper jam message

A 241.09 Paper Jam message indicates that the printer thinks a sheet of paper has jammed at the front of the printer. The jammed sheet of paper is most likely to be found in one of the paper trays or under the toner cartridge.
NOTE: If you select Show areas on the operator panel, you can view one or more images to help you locate and clear the jam.

Clearing the jam
To resolve the paper jam message, you must first clear the entire paper path. To access the jam area, you will need to open one or more of the paper trays. Follow the steps in the table below to help you locate and clear the jam.
Step Action Image 1 Open the printer paper tray (tray 1), and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10222007_1922-enus28872_24109paperjam1_t64x_en_us.gif 2 Open the front cover and remove the toner cartridge. Examine the area inside the printer and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10242007_159-enus28872_24109paperjam5_t64x_en_us.gif 3 If you have a duplex option installed, also remove the duplex access tray and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10302007_1559-enus28860_24x17paperjamduplex_t64x_en_us.gif 4 If you were printing from an optional paper tray, such as tray 2 or tray 3, open any optional trays, starting at the top, and remove any jammed media. Pull the print media either up or down. If it does not pull easily one way, try the other way pattlnk_10222007_1957-enus28872_24109paperjam3_t64x_en_us.gif 5 If you are printing from an optional 2000-sheet feeder, open the front door. Press the elevator button (A) to lower the tray. Remove any partially fed media from the feeder.
NOTE: Make sure the stack of print media is straight and pushed all of the way into the feeder. Incorrectly loaded paper is the most common cause of paper jams from a 2000-sheet feeder option.
pattlnk_10222007_2110-enus28872_24109paperjam4_t64x_en_us.gif
For a larger image, click here. 6 Finally, reinstall all of the paper trays and press the pattlnk_10222007_2117-select_button.jpg button to try printing again.
NOTE: You may receive a different paper jam message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If this occurs, the error code will indicate the location. Click here for a diagram showing the error code locations. The paper path will vary, depending on the paper source and number of paper feed options installed.
Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find and try printing again.

Photos in Mac's iPhoto will not print from the photo paper tray. They always print on paper in the main paper tray (this is on an HP C7280 printer). I had an HP Photosmart 8250 and it was the same with...


This is an older post, but it appeared to be unanswered. In iPhoto once a photo is selected, you hit "Print" at the bottom right. A preview screen with options comes up. Once the correct options there are chosen, you need to hit print again - but it does not print yet. Instead a second "Print" window opens. In the middle of this window there is an "iPhoto" button with arrow buttons on the right. The arrow buttons open a drop down menu. Choose "Paper/Paper Quality" from that menu, and it will give you a button for "Source." The arrow buttons on the right of the "Source" button allow you to choose "Photo Tray."
Once it's changed, you don't need to redo it each time you print an additional photo, since iPhoto reverts to "Last Used Settings." But as a shortcut for future sessions, you can save these settings using the "Preset" button located at the top of the second "Print" window (the window where the "iPhoto" button is located). I used "Photo Tray" in the description so it would be obvious, since I don't print pictures every day.

H.P laserjet 4100 series.


Printout a copy of your printer configuration. Press the right-side of the MENU button once, then the right-side of the ITEM button twice, and press the SELECT button once. This will print out a configuration page. In the lower right part of the information on this page, it will give you stats on the Paper Trays and Options. Standard settings on these should be "Default Paper Size: LETTER, Tray 2 (LETTER). If either of these says anything different, I would do a cold-reset on the printer to reset it to factory defaults. If you have a network card installed, you need to pull it out before doing this. To do a cold reset, turn the printer off, then hold down the GO button and turn the printer on. Wait about 5 seconds, then release the GO button. Also, you need to check your print setup on your PC. I am assuming you have a WindowsXP machine. Click START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS&FAXES. Right-click your printer icon and select PROPERTIES. Click the PRINTING PREFERENCES button at the bottom. Click the PAPER tab. Check the boxes at lower left. "Size is should be Letter", "Source is & Type is should both be Auto Select". Click OK, click OK, and exit the Printers Window. Lastly, I would make sure that you have Letter size selected from the application you are trying to print from. Hope this helps.
