CP3525 Select default tray

We have recently purchased the CP2535 with the 500 sheet addon tray. We print primarily plain paper black and white documents, and lots of them, so we would like to pull from tray 3 - as the default tray. The 250 sheet tray would be the rollover tray. We've tried leaving tray 2 empty, setting it for different media, but the printer defaults to tray 2 and it takes a trip to the printer to hit the OK button for the printer to start pulling from tray 3 when tray 2 is empty.

How can we set the printer to make it pull from tray 3 as the default tray and roll over to tray 2? How do we set the printer to rollover to another tray automatically?

Re: CP3525 Select default tray

Some tips. The tray option needs to be added in the device options of the print driver properties. Both trays need to be set for the same type/size of paper to roll over and the device behaviour tray settings needs to set to allow this. Use automatic select for the paper source.

Re: CP3525 Select default tray

Hi and thanks for the tips. The problem was that the guides for tray 3 were not exactly lined up for letter-sized paper. Once the customer snugged up the guides to the paper so the printer could report the correct size, everything worked fine.
