HP OfficeJet Pro 8700 Printers - Install the Second Paper Tray

This document is for HP OfficeJet Pro 8720, 8725, 8728, 8730, 8732M, 8740, and 8745 All-in-One printers.
Some printers have the option of adding a second paper input tray (also known as Tray 2) which is a useful accessory that allows for larger printing jobs. You can install Tray 2 onto the base of the printer.

Step 1: Install Tray 2

Connect Tray 2 to the base of your printer.
  1. Turn off the printer, and then disconnect the power cord and any other cables.
  2. Place Tray 2 on a flat level surface next to your printer.
  3. Carefully lift and then place your printer on top of Tray 2.
    The printer is heavy and requires a second person to help safely lift and place the printer on top of Tray 2. Grasp the sides of the printer to avoid pinching your hands or fingers between the printer and tray.

  1. On the printer control panel, swipe down to open the Dashboard, and then touch the Setup icon .
  2. Swipe up on the display, and then touch Tray and Paper Management.
  3. Touch Tray Management, touch Default Tray, and then touch Tray 2.
