HP Laserjet 2430t PCL6 - printer tray options

Hi

We have an HP laserjet printer that we have two print trays to choose from. We would like it to stop automatically defaulting to tray 2 when out of paper in tray one. WE would rather it just didnt print when the paper in Tray 1 is out. The printer is networked and if we could get instructions on how to set things up so this can stop happening we would be extremly grateful.

Make sure that you have tray 1 set for the correct paper type. Leaving the paper type as unknown will result in very slow printing as the printer will assume that it might be printing on heavy media, envelopes or the like.

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

Problem with printing from Tray 1


It can be set from more then one place. In MS Word you would go into the tools setting then choose the envelope drop down, select labels and in the options for the label you choose the format as an Avery Equivalent. That is where you can tell MS Word which tray to pull from. Also in the printer properties, under advanced options you can designate what type of paper is in each tray. Good Luck

Re: HP 1320 won't take the tray designation for 2 and 3 Help


Hello classygirl,

I had this exact same problem and resolved it by downloading the HP LaserJet 1160/LaserJet 1320 North American and Western European Full Printing Solution which can be downloaded from support.hp.com.

Because the 1320 does not have a built-in interface, installing the basic drivers will not work. You must download and install the full 400+mb package.

Hope this helps!

My HP LaserJet 4200 prints fine from tray 2, but will NOT print envelopes from tray 1. It WILL print on regular paper from tray 1, but will not print envelopes. What gives? I've already rebooted the


Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?

I hope this helps.

Hp 2605dn - choosing the correct paper tray


Open up your control panel, then your printers, then open up your HP 2605dn by right clicking it and choosing the 'properties' option. Next, look for device settings and specify there what is in each tray. That should enable you to just print to the printer and have it automatically pick the right paper.

Have fun!

Laser jet HP 2600n


Before you print, check the printer settings and see if it is set to choose paper automatically. If it is try manually setting it to the tray 1 you mentioned. This may stop the printer from checking every time it is grabbing paper. Also try keeping the other tray slightly open which may automatically tell the printer to look right away at the other tray.

Hope this helps!
