HP LaserJet Enterprise 700 M712 - 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 print driver or a software program and the tray is not configured to match the print-job’s settings
note:
The prompt does not display if you are printing from Tray 1, and Tray 1 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.
