Question about Ricoh Aficio CL3500N Laser Printer

2 Answers

Ricoh CL3100N I have 1 document that i want to print from tray 1 or 2. When i go to page setup, in paper I select A4, then I select "default tray (auto tray select)" The printer prints the first page from tray 1 then insists i add paper to the Bypass tray. I don't want to use the bypass because it feeds the pages in crookedly and the colours don't come out right. How can I alter the settings to print the whole document from tray 1 or 2? HELP!!!!

    The problem is when the paper starts to feed, coming up the back of the printer is it jamming there not going the whole way through the print

I've noticed that sometimes in "Page setup" (assuming it is a MS word document you are printing), there are two columns under the "Paper" tab. the left column is the paper source for the first page and the second column is for all following pages. Ensure both columns are set to auto tray select or tray1/2.

My understanding for the second page to ask for paper is either:

1/ what is mentioned above,
2/ the second page is not an A4 size document (mixed size pages).

hope this helps.

Hello sir, how to take print on A4 page? please help me

Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
  • Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menumag-glass_10x10.gif next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
  • Step 6.Press "Print" to print the photograph.

    if you using office go to page setup and select the tray(s) that you want to use for the first page and other pages ( both must be the same ) unless you only want the first page as letter head and the rest on plain paper or something along those lines ?

    Also if you go into the properties of the printer and go to advanced and then click on the printing defaults button and see if the options in there are the same or different to whats in printing preferences.

    If they are set to tray 1 then it will default to tray 1

    My printer will only print from bypass tray. Why?

    It may be something to do with the paper size settings on printer driver, document print settings or page setup. If for example the computer thinks the paper size is Letter, and the paper in Tray 1/2/3 is A4, it won't print.

    Won't print to right tray

    I had this problem and solved it like this:

    1. Right click on printer driver in printers and faxes.
    2. Select printing preferences
    3. Choose paper quality tab
    4. Set paper size (A4 in my case)
    5. Set paper source to printer-auto-select. This is different from the default "Automatically select"

    As long as tray 1 is empty, tray 2 should now kick in. Setting the paper source as tray 2 didn't work at all.

    You seem to have to set this on each client computer though - even if you are sharing the printer over a network (4200n).

    Don't be mad, but it never hurts to ask if you've checked the following...
    • Made sure that the printer has not been set to use legal or A4 paper in tray 1. You can set this through the options listed in the menu map on the printer display.
    • Have you checked that the Word document is not setup in the "" or in the document itself to use A4 or legal as the default paper type.
    • Is the small paper resize lever in tray 1 pushed flush against the 8.5x11 paper in the feeder so that it detects properly.
    Less obvious...
    • Did you make sure that the print properties are not setup with the wrong tray configuration...i.e. listing a duplexer when one is not present, additional trays, or a feeder?
    If the answer is that you have done all of this and the issue has not been resolved, I would try looking for obstruction above the primary feeder tray, in the gear assemblies in and around the bottom of the printer and the tray, or around the paper sensor. (a small plastic lever in the front of the tray.

    Ricoh Aficio 450 paper format printing problem

    This could be a few things, first thing i would try is to go in page setup under the program you are using and make sure paper is set to auto select (File>page setup). The program will override the print driver.
    next make sure the driver setting (paper source) are also set to auto. make these changes by right clicking on the driver>printing preferences.
    third I would go to the copier, Make sure the tray are set to the proper paper size and the display paper size matches the tray

    Hi there
    I've had a similar problem in windows instead of the mac, but it sounds like it's a 
    similar problem where the computer's telling the printer to use a 
    different sized paper to what the printer's been told is in the trays. For example, if, say, your document is set up for A4 sized paper, but the printer is set up to think it has Letter sized paper in the trays, it'll ask to have A4 sized paper installed in the tray instead.

    Go into the system setup on the printer and select the paper setup menu.  

    Select Tray 1 and choose the right paper type and size from the settings (After you choose the paper type you have to go all the way back through the menus on the printer and choose the paper size as well)

    Hope this helps!
