Ensure that the Device Settings in the driver properties matches the actual device configuration.

IllegalMediaSize implies that the print stream contains a request to load paper (media) of a SIZE (e.g. Executive) which is not supported by the tray(s) on the device.

>> as a second page.
>> First page prints fine.
The printer has used an available paper (media) tray (source) as a substitute for the (unavailable) source specified in the incoming print stream, and printed the page using this available source.
It has then printed the warning (indicating the error) on a separate sheet; it would be less than satisfactory to print the warning at the beginning or end of the sheet on which the user's data has been printed.
