Not necesarily so, it depends on how you have the printer configured. To test the MP tray, use the arrow keys to get to troubleshooting menu, press check, use arrow keys to get to paper path test, press check, set tray option to tray 1, then print test page. Printer should feed from MP tray. If it does, then the problem is that you do not have the printer set to print from MP tray first or you have the tray options set to exclusive which means that if your print job asks for tray 2 then printer will not print from MP tray unless you specify MP tray in the print options.

Our infoprint 1125 is on a ibm mid range computer system & is accessible to 9 users. when we print an envelope, the printer asks for a manual load of the envelope, how do i change this to automatic...


It's been my experience with these machines that envelopes are always fed through the manual feed tray.

The Tray 2 cassette's pick up assembly is different than the manual feed,
it has 2 rollers that have a wide area they can pick up while the manual feed has just 1 single roller.
If you remove the tray cassette and look under the printer you can see the two rollers, these would probably have a hard time picking up a standard size envelope.
Also the tray would have to path the paper up and would have to bend it through the paper path which can cause problems with the flaps on the envelopes.

Best method is to use the manual feed tray and to also have the back cover open so that the envelopes path straight through the printer without being curled.

(I've seen these in a ton of places ranging from small business to banks and they always have the envelopes in the manual feed)

Hi the machine could be defaulted to print from the main trays if you have the same type paper being fed from the manual feed same size paper then it will automatically take it from the default trays
IF you take the paper out of the trays and put it only in the manual feed will it print and take it from the manual feed also you have to tell the machine when you use the manual feed what size and type of paper is in the manual feed once you tell it what paper and type of paper like card stock you then need to make sure when you go to print that it is set on your computer with manual feed and type of paper must match what is set on machine

The belt inside my scanjet 4200c has come off. How do I reattach it? I have opened the scanner. It looks to be relatively easy but I don't know how to attach the belt to the motor etc


Instructions

1 Lift the hatch on the feed tray and pull up the large green tab to the left of the roller. Remove any jammed or torn paper from under the roller and around the feed tray.
2 Pull the input feed tray out of the automatic document feeder. Grasp the feed tray with both hands and pull it straight out.
3 Check the interior of the automatic document feeder for jammed paper. Remove any jammed paper, then reinsert the feed tray into the automatic document feeder. Push down the feeder cover until you hear a click.

When printing from computer and selecting tray 2 with 8.5x11 in it, if Tray 1 (Manual Feed) is in the down position with 11x17 paper in it the 5550n will automatically feed from Tray 1.


look at the tray settings on the printer, (Access the control panel) typical setting is "any size any type", change the tray 1 setting to 11 x 17 , plain paper, and it will then take the paper as requested.

Hp lj 4250 tray 1 stoped feeding automatically.


Hello,

Here is the info from the service manual about tray configuration.

The value corresponds to the media size that is currently loaded in tray 1. ANY: If both the type and size for tray 1 are set to ANY, the printer will pull media from tray 1 first if media is loaded in the tray. A size other than ANY: The printer does not pull from tray 1 unless the type or size of the print job matches the type or size loaded in this tray.

So set both the paper size and type on tray one to "ANY" and you should be good to go.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

I have the full service manual available for instant download for $6.95 if you are interested.

Paper not feeding properly, nothing jammed as I have checked. Loading tray having problems.


Check to see if the printer is actively trying to feed the paper. If you hear it trying to feed and see the wheels turning, but the paper won't feed, check to see if a screw securing the feed wheel has come loose. If you hear the sound, but nothing moves to pull the paper in, then you probably have a bad printer. They're too cheap to replace to bother fixing - so get a new one.

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!
