HP Business Inkjet 1200 Series Printer - Configuring Paper Trays

Introduction
By default, the printer draws media from Tray 1. If Tray 1 is empty, the printer draws media from Tray 2 (if installed). You can change this default behavior using the following features in the embedded Web server or the Toolbox.
  • Tray lock: Use this feature to protect special media such as letterhead or preprinted media from accidental use. If the printer runs out of paper while printing a document, it will not use paper from a locked tray to complete the print job.
  • Default tray: Use this feature to determine the first tray from which the printer draws media. This works when the automatic option is set in the printer driver.
      note:
    To use the tray lock and default tray settings, you must select the automatic tray selection option in the printer software. If the printer is on a network and you set a default tray, the setting will affect all users of the printer. Tray 2 is designed to hold only plain paper.
Configuring the tray
  1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
  2. From the Toolbox: Click the Printer Services tab, and then click Advanced Configuration.
    From the embedded Web server: Click the Settings tab, and then click Paper Handling in the left pane.
  3. Change the desired tray settings and click OK or Apply.
The following table lists possible ways you can use the tray settings to meet your printing needs.
