Stopping Auto Tray Selection

Where is the setting to stop the printer from using paper from another tray when trays are empty?
We have 4 trays - all A4 in size but with custom\preprinted paper. We would like to stop printing when for example tray 1 is empty - at the moment if tray 1 is empty the it automatically selects paper from tray 2 or 3 or 4.

If you use different print materials of the same size in the trays, each tray with a different print material should have a unique paper type setting to prevent the printer from linking the trays together and mistakenly printing on the wrong paper.

From the printer's operator panel, choose the paper menu, then paper type, then select the source (ie, tray) that you want to change.

For example, if you have plain paper in tray 1 and preprinted paper in tray 2 and both are set up where size = A4 and type = Plain paper then when Tray 1 runs out it will automatically feed from Tray 2. To prevent this from happening you should change Tray 2 type = Letterhead. In this way, the printer knows that the two media types aren't identical and won't pull from that tray unless you specifically tell it to.

Does not sense lower feeding tray as full


One suggestion is to check if there is paper behind the tray which is stopping the paper lift mechanism from functioning properly. The paper senso rcould be dirty or broken and will need to be serviced. Or, the papersize dial could be set to the wrong paper size.

Printer switches to tray 3 when out of paper instead of stopping


You can do one or a nother thing. You can change the paper size in paper tray 3 to Legal size or you can go into the user settings, under addtional funcation and choose, that tray 3 will not daisy chain when tray 2 is empty or you can make tray 3 not to be able to print too.

Ricoh/Aficio SP C410DN Tray priority switches on its own


It is pulling paper from the tray specified within the application you are printing from or the driver. For example, from Microsoft word, you would have to go into page setup and select the tray you would like it to pull from. You will also want to check which tray it is pulling from in the driver, however the application generally overrides the driver settings. Both of which override anything you program at the machine.

For tray linking to work, both Paper Size AND Paper type must be configured the same for both trays. You probably have the paper sizes the same but types could be different. The is no setting to make tray linking work.. it will do it automatically if the above settings are correct.

Paper tray selection


If I understand correctly you have two trays and the first one is set to Letter but keeps defaulting to the second tray which is Legal?

1- Sawp the trays, if it is defaulting to tray 2 then put Letter where the Legal is and see if it solves your problem.
2- it may be that it is defaulting to Legal and not to the 2nd tray, no matter what position it's in. In that case the only way to change it is the settings ( most copiers it will be in the service mode not User mode) you will not have access to it if that's the case.
Did you talk to the supervisor or Service Manager? It must be a mom and pop shop otherwise they would have sent a tech out.
Good luck.

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.

Paper tray selection


Go to Paper Menu > Paper Size > Tray 1 - note what the Auto setting states (Letter, A4, Legal, etc.) Pull the tray out to set what it is configured for. Then reinsert it & pull it out a few times, noting what the display show the Auto size show. It should match the tray's settings.

If the Display indicates otherwise, it means one of two things:

1) The "auto size sensing" board on the left may be defective. The left side of the tray has a matrix of 3 plastic tabs that stick out in certain order depending on the tray setting. If this board fails, it may show Executive or A4 when the tray is set for letter.

2) The tray may be in-between two settings. Try to readjust the tray length setting between sizes. (You will notice the plastic tabs will change order.) The last time you loaded paper it may have pushed it just enough so that it is no longer seen as letter by the auto sensing board.

I hope this helps...
