Access the Printer Menu: #
Start by ensuring your HP Color LaserJet Enterprise Printer is powered on and ready. Navigate to the printer’s control panel or touchscreen display.
Open Tray Configuration: #
Locate and select the “Tray Configuration” or “Paper Tray Settings” option on the printer’s menu. The exact wording may vary depending on your printer model.
Select the tray: #
Choose the paper tray you want to configure from the available options. Enterprise printers often have multiple paper trays, so select the one you wish to set up.
Adjust Paper Size: #
Specify the paper size you intend to use with the selected tray. You can typically choose from standard paper sizes such as letter, legal, A4, etc. If your paper size isn’t listed, a custom size option might allow you to input specific dimensions.
Set Paper Type: #
Select the paper type that matches the media loaded into the tray. Options may include plain paper, letterhead, envelopes, and labels. This setting ensures the printer applies the appropriate print settings for the chosen paper type.
Paper Source Priority: #
Some HP Enterprise printers offer paper source prioritization. You can configure whether the printer should automatically switch to the selected tray when the current tray is empty. In addition, it should prompt you to confirm the switch.
Save Settings: #
Confirm or save the changes after adjusting the paper tray settings to your preferences. The process may involve pressing the “OK” or “Save” button on the printer’s control panel.
Test Printing: #
To ensure your settings are correctly applied, try printing a test page. Load the desired paper type and size into the configured tray, then initiate a print job. Verify that the printer selects the correct tray and uses the specified settings.
Additional Trays: #
If your printer has multiple trays, repeat the above steps for each tray as needed, configuring them according to your printing requirements.
Exit Menu: #
Once configuring all the necessary trays, exit the tray configuration menu on the printer’s control panel.
Your HP Color LaserJet Enterprise Printer is now set up to handle different paper types and sizes from the designated trays per your preferences.
