I have the HP Officejet Pro K850. I use Autocad most of the time to print drawings on A3 size paper, which I have loaded in the input tray on the printer. Occasionally I need to print letters on A4 size paper. So instead of swapping the paper in the input tray I just pop some A4 paper into the front manual feed tray. My problem is that I cannot seem to force the printer to print from the front manual tray. I have to remove the A3 paper from the input tray first, which defeats the object. I have checked my user guide and troubleshooting, but can't seem to find a solution. Am I being thick?! Can anyone advise? Thank you.
This can normaly be solved by going into the printer preferences and then setting the trays manualy in the software. otherwise the printer will automaticaly select the main tray first then move onto the mp tray. sorry if it sounds a bit vague but these options change from printer to printer and have not seen a k850 for a while
Hope thyis helps

Okay Baba, here is some assistance that might help. But before i go further, this normaly happens when theres dust in your paper tray. The dust particles can scratch or make a hole or even stick to the printing drum which causes lines (either black
I know this doesn't help with the settings of the software for the printer but...It might help you trouble shoot. on this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_size The A3 size is : 297mm X 420mm or 11.69in X 16.54 Tabloid is: 279mm X 432mm or 11in X 17in
Soon after I posted the problem on this site, I went to different margin setting windows and they all appeared correct. I tried another test page and noticed the printer was off. I turned it back on and it worked perfectly. I had previously unplugged the power and cable and rebooted the system several times to no avail. I also have an HP Officejet 7410 All-In-One so I didn't need the other for everyday operations, just preferred it.
