HP Color LaserJet Enterprise CM4540 MFP Product Series - Configure trays

The product automatically prompts you to configure a tray for type and size in the following situations:
  • When you load paper into the tray
  • When you specify a particular tray or paper type for a print job through the printer driver or a software program and the tray is not configured to match the print-job’s settings
note:
The prompt does not appear if you are printing from Tray 1, and it is configured for the Any Size paper size and the Any Type paper type settings. In this situation, if the print job does not specify a tray, the product prints from Tray 1, even if the paper size and type settings in the print job do not match the paper loaded in Tray 1.

Configure a tray when loading paper

  1. Load paper in the tray. Close the tray if you are using Tray 2, 3, 4, or 5.
  2. The tray configuration message appears.
  3. Touch the OK button to accept the detected size and type, or touch the Modify button to choose a different paper size or type.
  4. Select the correct size and type and then touch the OK button.

Configure a tray to match print job settings

  1. In the software program, specify the source tray, the paper size, and the paper type.
  2. Send the job to the product.
    If the tray needs to be configured, the tray configuration message appears.
  3. Load the tray with the specified type and size of paper, and then close the tray.
  4. Touch the OK button to accept the detected size and type, or touch the Modify button to choose a different paper size or type.
  5. Select the correct size and type and then touch the OK button.

Configure a tray by using the control panel

You can also configure the trays for type and size without a prompt from the product.
  1. From the Home screen, touch the Trays button.
  2. Touch the line for the tray that you want to configure, and then touch the Modify button.
  3. Select the paper size and paper type from the lists of options.
  4. Touch the OK button to save your selection.

Automatic paper sensing (auto-sense mode)

The automatic paper type sensor functions when a tray is configured to the Any Type or plain type setting.
After it has picked up paper from the tray, the product can detect overhead transparencies, paper weight, and gloss level.
For more control, select a specific paper type in the job or configure the tray for a specific paper type.

Auto-sense settings

Full sensing (Tray 1 only)
For each sheet of paper that it picks up from the tray, the product detects light paper, plain paper, heavy paper, glossy paper, tough paper, and transparencies.
Expanded sensing
note:
This is the default setting for all trays.
For the first few sheets of paper that it picks up from the tray, the product detects light paper, plain paper, heavy paper, glossy paper, tough paper, and transparencies. The product assumes the rest of the pages are of the same type.
Transparency only
The product distinguishes between transparencies and non-transparencies. This setting provides the fastest printing, but for some paper types it might reduce print quality.
