HP Color LaserJet 4700 Printer Series - How to Configure Input Trays

Overview
The printer allows the user to configure input trays by type and size. Different media can be loaded in the printer’s input trays and then request media by type or size using the control panel.
  note:
If any other HP LaserJet printer models is used, the user might be accustomed to configuring Tray 1 to First mode or Cassette mode. On HP Color LaserJet 4700 series printers, setting Tray 1 size and type to ANY SIZE is equivalent to First mode. Setting size or type for Tray 1 to a setting other than ANY SIZE is equivalent to Cassette mode.
  note:
If duplex printing option is used, be sure that the media loaded meets the specifications for duplex printing.
  note:
The instructions below are to configure the trays at the printer control panel. The trays can also be configured from the computer by accessing the embedded Web server. See Using the embedded Web server.

Configuring trays when the printer gives a prompt
In the following situations, the printer automatically prompts the user to configure the tray for type and size:
  • When the paper is loaded into the tray.
  • When a particular tray or media type for a print job is specified through the printer driver or a software application and the tray is not configured to match the print job settings.
The control panel displays the message LOAD TRAY XX: [TYPE] [SIZE], To change type press (check mark). The instructions below explain how to configure the tray after the prompt appears.
  note:
The prompt does not appear if the user is printing from Tray 1 and if Tray 1 is configured for ANY SIZE and ANY TYPE.
Configuring a tray when loading paper
  caution:
If paper is loaded in Trays 3 through 6 when the printer is in sleep mode, the new paper will not be sensed when the printer comes out of sleep mode. This could cause the wrong paper to be used for a print job. Be sure to wake the printer before loading paper in these trays.
  1. Load paper in the tray. (Close the tray if Tray 2 or one of the optional trays are being used.)
  2. The printer displays the tray configuration message To change size press (check mark).
  3. Press (check mark) to display the TRAY X SIZE= menu.
  4. Press (down arrow) or (up arrow) to highlight the correct size.
  5. Press (check mark) to select the size.
    A Setting saved message appears, and then a prompt appears to configure the paper type.
  6. To change the type, press (down arrow) or (up arrow) to highlight the correct paper type.

    A Setting saved message appears, and then the current type and size settings are displayed.
  8. If size and type are now correct, press (back arrow) to clear the message.
Configuring a tray to match print job settings
  1. In the software application, specify the source tray, the paper size, and the paper type.
  2. Send the job to the printer.

Configuring Tray 2 and optional trays for a custom paper size
The printer automatically detects many sizes of paper, but the user can also configure trays for custom paper sizes. The following parameters must be specified:
  • Unit of measure (millimeters or inches).
  • X dimension (the width of the page as it feeds into the printer).
  • Y dimension (the length of the page as it feeds into the printer)
    Figure : Example of Tray 2
  1. Media width guides
  2. Media length guides
  3. Page width (X dimension)
  4. Page length (Y dimension)
Use the following procedure to configure a tray for a custom size. Once a custom size is set for a tray, it will be retained until the media length guides are reset.
Setting the custom size for Tray 2 or an optional tray
To set the custom size for Tray 2 or an optional tray perform the following steps:
  1. Open the tray and place the media face-up in the tray.
  2. Set the media length guides to the appropriate non-standard position and close the tray.
  3. When the tray configuration message appears, press (check mark).
  4. Press (up arrow) to change ANY CUSTOM to CUSTOM.
  5. Press (check mark) to select CUSTOM.
  6. Press (up arrow) or (down arrow) to highlight the correct unit (either millimeters or inches).
  7. Press (check mark) to select the value.
    After the unit of measure is set properly, set the X dimension as follows:
  8. Press (up arrow) or (down arrow) to highlight the correct value.
  9. Press (check mark) to select the value. If the value entered is outside the valid range, Invalid value will appear for two seconds. The display prompts the user to enter another value.
    After the X dimension is set properly, set the Y dimension as follows:
  10. Press (up arrow) or (down arrow) to highlight the correct value.
  11. Press (check mark) to select the value. If the value entered is outside the valid range, Invalid value will appear for two seconds.
    The display prompts the user to enter another value. The printer displays a message indicating the dimensions for the custom size.
