HP LaserJet 5100tn Prints from Tray 1 when not aked

Hi,

Our printer keeps printing from Tray 1 when not asked. Not sure if I need to changed something on the computer when I press print or if I need to change details on the actual printer. It does sometimes print correctly from the A4 or A3 tray when requested. It's annoying because you then have to get up and change it to correct tray you wanted to print from.

Please help.

Thank you

We have a laserjet 2420dn which prints fine from Tray 1 but constantly jams when printing from Tray 2. It only prints OK from tray 2 when there is ONE sheet in the tray. I changed the pickup roller in...


In addition to the pickup roller, the separation pad in the tray should also be replaced. This pad keeps more than one sheet from feeding at a time. When we do maintenance on a printer we always replace both to stop this from happening. The part number you want is RM1-1298-000. It is used in quite a few different HP printers.

Im trying to print a document in word thats about 200 pages and i just want to print only 4 of them and whn i print it says it prints in the box but nothing comes out the printer but when i try another...


Hi,
Alrite now, firstly, since you need only 4 pages of the 200pg document, go to File > Print > Select page range (e.g. 1-4, 51-54, etc)
Then print and make sure you have pages loaded in tray 1.

You can also have papers in tray 2. If MS Word does not respond, then change the drivers to UPD (http://www.hp.com/go/upd), the system may have legacy drivers or An earlier version of firmware.

Tray 1: Any size / Any Type.

This should solve the issue

Prints from Manual Tray instead of Tray 4


Open a document. Select File>Page Setup and change the Source to Tray 4.

Or...

Try to print something. When the Print window comes up, select Preferences. On the Print/Quality tab look for the drop down menu labeled "Source is:" and change it to the tray you want. Click on the Save button.

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.
