HP LJ 4345 MFP copies from another source tray?

Hi!
Our printer uses the paper tray 3 for making copies. But we'd like to change this so the printer uses the paper tray 2 instead. I didn't find any option for this in the printer settings or in the "HP LaserJet M4345MFP User Guide".
Is there actually a way to choose anothter paper source tray for making copies?

Thanx for any reply.
Joyce

Joyce,

Generally, the choice of tray is based on paper size. If Tray 2 has Legal and Tray 3 has Letter and you try to make a letter copy it should try to print from tray 3.

Also, in most cases it tries to print to "Plain" paper. If tray 2 is set to "preprinted" the unit will pick another tray.

You might print a "Menu Map" and verify the tray settings.

Good luck.

Thanx a lot for your response.
If I got you right, there's no setting for configuring a specific source paper tray for it right?
That has helped me already.
Cause it means that I'm not just inaptly to find it and I can stop looking for a setting. ;)

The paper tray settings are set as followed.

Default Paper Size: A4
Tray 1 Size: Any Size
Tray 1 Type: Any Type
Tray 2 Size: A4
Tray 2 Type: Plain
Tray 3 Size: A4
Tray 3 Type: Plain

Tray 2 and 3 are set to plain.
But nevertheless the printer takes always the paper from tray 3 for making copies.

Is there really no way to change the source paper tray for copies if both are set to plain???

thanx for any further help

Joyce

Joyce,

Are you using plain paper in both trays?

Hi Richard

In paper tray 2 there's plain white paper.
In paper tray 3 there's white paper with a small logotype on the right top corner.

But I don't think the logotype has here a special influence, hasn't it?
Cause both trays are set to plain paper and the printer takes it from the tray where the logotype paper is.
