HP LaserJet Enterprise M4555 MFP 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.
Select the paper by source, type, or size
In the Microsoft Windows operating system, three settings affect how the printer driver tries to pull media when you send a print job. Source, Type, and Size settings appear in the Page Setup, Print, or Print Properties dialog boxes in most software programs. Unless you change these settings, the product automatically selects a tray using the default settings.
Source
To print by source, select a specific tray in the printer driver for the product to pull from. If you select a tray that is configured for a type or size that does not match your print job, the product prompts you to load the tray with the type or size of paper for your print job before printing it. When you load the tray, the product begins printing.
Type and size
  • Printing by type or size causes the product to pull from the tray that is loaded with the correct type and size of paper.
  • Selecting paper by type rather than source helps protect special paper from accidental use.
  • Using the wrong setting might result in unsatisfactory print quality. Always print by type for special print media, such as labels or transparencies.
  • Print by type or size for envelopes, if possible.
  • To print by type or size, select the type or size from the Page Setup dialog box, the Print dialog box, or the Print Properties dialog box, depending on the software program.
  • If you often print on a certain type or size of paper, configure a tray for that type or size. Then, when you select that type or size as you print a job, the product automatically pulls paper from the tray that is configured for that type or size.
