Unplug the printer from the power and USB, Pull the paper tray in and out a few times, then plug the power and USB back in. If this does not work unplug it again, pull the tray out and look for a switch somewhere in the paper trays hole. this could be damaged or not triggering correctly. You may be able to rectify this by wedging the switch closed. Turning the printer upside down will help locate the switch.

HP 9050 MFP keeps asking for tray 1. Configuration is set to use tray 4 first, but everytime a print job is sent to the printer, it requests load paper in tray 1. How do I get this problem fixed?


You need to check the paper types you have assigned and the paper types that users are requesting. Print out a configuration page and make sure that Tray 4 shows as plain paper. If it does not then check all the stops. The 2000 sheet tray 4 units are noted for having the stops not engage and this causes the printer to think that tray 4 is custom media. You can also go into diagnostics and print a paper path test for each tray to ensure that all the trays are working.

Make sure the paper try is properly attached. Try to unplug the power of your pinter and the USB cable for about 2-3 minutes. Restart your computer. Plug the USB and power to the printer then turn it back on.

What is the photo tray? how do I properly engage it?


It is the holder for 6x4 photo paper. You will find it built into the top cover of the main A4 paper tray, on the right hand side. Mine has a transparent plastic cover. To load it, lift the cover and insert photo paper.
It is engaged by lifting the cover and sliding the tray into the printer. It is automatically recognised.

HP 7150 inkjet printer stopped loading paper.


Hello
Happy new year and start reading solution with Smile and trust.
Based on information you have provided I understand that your printer has stopped loading the Paper.I recognize the importance of resolving this issue and I look forward in providing you with the necessary assistance you need.

Please check the Following Link to get the guidelines
"How to Load Paper" its silly to ask you but its better to keep information updated

Try by Following the steps below to correct the issue:
  1. Disconnect power to the printer.
  2. Remove all photo paper from the Photo Tray.
  3. Push the Photo Tray completely into the printer.
  4. Snap the Photo Tray out (towards you) sharply.
  5. Reconnect power to the printer.
  6. Print a self-test on 8.5 X 10 paper.
  7. Engage the Photo Tray.
  8. From the Printer Toolbox, select Calibrate the Photo Tray.

If the above solution wont work then there something to do with the Adjustment/alignment of the Tray.

Paper is not picked due to the Try --

If you see inside there will be a small rubber which need to be clean by the spirit .. Check this out as well .. as i tried on my printer and it works
Do slow and with care --

If it works Vote me

Printer will not print properly, say photo tray not engaged.


take out the photo tray if you can and put it back into its place /
turn off the printer and turn it back on . if it works fine if it does not ,the sensor is bad .
it gives you this message only if the paper try is not inserted properly or it is a false error message .

Tray 2 Printing


Hi,

Couple of things for you to check out.

1. Is that you've enabled the second tray for the printer. This is normally automatic but to check go to:
START > Printers > L7780 > Properties
- Click the "Device Settings" tab
... then sort out the different setting so they are all correct such as paper size and of course "Tray 2: Installed"


2. The other more common issue is simply that the printer isn't sitting properly on top of Tray 2 and as a result it's not engaging the cog wheel properly to pick up paper.

This is one of those trial and error things where you pick up the printer and re-slot it down onto Tray 2 until it works properly.


Hope that helps...

My HP laserjet 3600N wont print it says its out of paper but its not. Have taken paper out, added new paper, put less in, put more in but still says out of paper - any ideas please


The problem is underneath tray 2 - there is a plastic tab that sits on a metal crossmember that engages the paper tray to "pop up" when you insert the tray . If you bend that cross member up that has the plastic tab it will engage the tray and let the paper been seen by the sensor. There must be a better Hp fix but have not found it yet.

Printing from the photo tray


I have found that when you put the photo paper in to the photo tray you have to slide the photo paper in to the printer gently as far as it will go, then slide the side and rear guides to the photo paper. If you just put the photo paper in to photo tray without doing this, the printer will not take up the photo paper at all.

Not printing


There is probably a paper jam in the tray feed path. The other situation is that the tray paper pick up roller has become hardened/polished, or the paper tray paper is greasy. First step, take the paper from the tray, and fan it out, so each sheet is separated from the next. try it with jut a dozen or so sheets, change the paper.

Thoroughly check the paper feed path.

If not working, then check/clean the rollers.

Dell Laser MPF 1600n WON'T PRINT


Two causes:

1. Worn out roller
<or>
2. Spring-loaded tray not engaging when placed into printer

1. The roller will try to "grab" the paper when the job starts. If it becomes too worn, it will slip and not grab anything. One fix is to apply a small amount of moisture to the u-shaped rubber roller.
Other option is to wrap a rubber band around it if you can.

2. Check to see if tray spring works properly. There is a small white knob on left side of tray. Push paper in tray down all the way until it clicks. Engage knob on side and paper should spring upwards. If this does not happen, the roller will not be able to engage the paper and it will simply click as it tries in vain.
