Configuring trays
You can configure the printer trays by type and size. Load different media in the printer trays and then
request media by type or size in the software program.
NOTE
If you have used previous HP Color LaserJet printers, you might be accustomed to
configuring tray 1 to first mode or cassette mode. To mimic the settings for first mode, configure
tray 1 for
ANY SIZE
and
ANY TYPE
. The printer will pull paper from tray 1 first (if paper is loaded
in that tray) when the print job does not specify another tray. This setting is recommended if you
use different types or sizes of paper in tray 1. To mimic the settings from cassette mode, set
either the size or type for tray 1 to a setting other than
ANY SIZE
or
ANY TYPE
. This setting is
recommended if you are using the same size and type of paper in tray 1.
NOTE
If you use 2-sided printing, be sure that the media meets the specifications for duplex
printing. See
Print-media specifications
.
The following instructions are for configuring the trays at the printer control panel. You can also configure
the trays from your computer through the embedded Web server. See
Using the embedded Web
server

Configuring tray 1 for custom paper
Use the
ANY SIZE
size setting when the selected media does not exactly match the size of the paper
specified in the document you are printing. If no source tray is specified, the printer looks first for paper
that exactly matches the document, and then it looks for and prints from a tray set to
ANY SIZE
or
ANY
TYPE
.
Use the
ANY CUSTOM
setting when you want to be able to print a number of custom sizes from the
tray without defining a set size for each job. Use the
CUSTOM
setting when you want to print a specific
print size from a particular tray. When you print a custom job, the printer looks for an exact size match.
If it does not find an exact match to the custom size specified, it looks for a tray set to
ANY CUSTOM
.
Finally, the printer looks for and uses media from a tray set to
ANY SIZE
.
