HP Color LaserJet 4700 Printer Series - How to Use Automatic Media Type Sensing

The HP Color LaserJet 4700 series printers can automatically classify media into one of the following categories:
  • Plain
  • Transparency
  • Glossy
  • Extra-heavy glossy
  • Glossy film
  • Heavy
  • Light
The automatic media type sensor functions only when that tray is configured to Any Type Plain. Configuring a tray to any other type, such as Bond or Glossy, deactivates the media sensor in that tray.
  note:
Get optimal performance with the automatic media sensing feature when using original HP media designed for use in HP color LaserJet printers.
Tray 1 sensing
Full sensing (default)
  • The printer stops at each page to sense media type.
  • This is the best mode for using mixed media in a single print job.
Expanded sensing
  • Each time the printer begins a print job, it stops the first page to sense the type.
  • The printer assumes that the second and all subsequent pages are of the same media type as the first page.
  • This is the second-fastest mode, and is useful for using stacks of the same media type.
Transparency
  • The printer does not stop any pages for sensing but distinguishes between transparencies (Transparency mode) and paper (Normal mode).
  • This is the fastest mode and is useful for high-volume printing in Normal mode.
Tray 2-N sensing
Expanded sensing
  • The printer stops the first five pages fed from each paper tray to sense the type and averages the five results.
  • The printer assumes that the sixth and all subsequent pages are of the same media type, until the printer is turned off or goes into sleep mode, or until the tray is opened.
Transparency only (default)
  • The printer does not stop any pages for sensing but distinguishes between transparencies (Transparency mode) and paper (Normal mode).
  • This is the fastest mode and is useful for high-volume printing in Normal mode.
To change these settings using the printer control panel, see HP Color LaserJet 4700 Printer Series - Configure Device Menu Overview (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c00425055)
