The lower tray (2)is for PLAIN paper, the upper tray(1)is for printed special paper.
Copy paper is taken from Lower tray but incoming fax paper is taken from upper tray.
This is not what occurred on my 7140xi where both copy and fax and 3/4 of normal printing came from the lower tray.
It should be obvious to most mortals that incoming faxes should be printed on plain paper but not as yet to the boffins at HP who insist that the machine is operating as designed. HELP!
PS Although there is an option to change the copy paper to come from either the top or bottom tray, there is no such option for incoming faxes.

-Carl, please let me know if this helps.
The fax machine is trying to print fax recieved copies on the bypass feeder.
Check up the setup menu on the control console.
Fine fax recieve.
You should find a selection for fax recieved in which paper tray.
Check this area, any that have the bypass feeder, de-select it.
Make selections for 8 1/2 x 11 paper in tray one.
push"special function" button, then select "key op prg", then "ok", then enter pin (default is 00000), then select "fax", then "ok", then select "rcv function", then "ok", then "tray selection", then "ok". The rest you should be able to follow your nose.
