Question about HP LaserJet 4000 Printer
Hi there. You can select the tray you want to use when you print in the print dialog page. Depending on the driver you're using, the driver of the printer might save the last used tray as the default one. Else, you might wanna go into control panel - printers, go into your printer's properties and look for the printer's default properties in the advanced tab. There, you might be able to set the default tray to be used for future prints. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

Selecting which tray is used for printing
You can select how the printer pulls paper from the trays.
Understanding tray order
When the printer receives a print job, it selects the tray by trying to match the requested paper
type and size with what has been loaded in the trays. Using an "autoselect" process, it searches
all available trays for the paper that satisfies the request, starting with the bottom tray and ending
with the top tray (tray 1). The printer begins printing the job as soon as it finds the proper type/
Note The "autoselect" process occurs only if no specific tray is requested for the job. If a specific tray
is requested, the job prints from the requested tray.
If paper is loaded in tray 1 and tray 1 is set TRAY 1 TYPE=ANY and TRAY 1 SIZE=ANY on the
Paper Handling menu, the printer will always pull paper from tray 1 first. See "Customizing
tray 1 operation" on page 47 for more information.
If the search fails, a message appears on the printer control panel display requesting that
you load the correct paper type/size. You can load that paper type/size, or you can override
the request by selecting a different type/size at the printer control panel.
If a tray runs out of paper during a print job, the printer automatically switches to any tray that
contains the same paper type/size.
The autoselect process changes somewhat if you customize tray 1 operation (as explained in
"Customizing tray 1 operation" on page 47) or set tray 1 for manual feed (as explained in
"Manually feeding paper from tray 1" on page 49). See if this works. Good luck !
