Strange problem with paper tray on HP LJ 4600
We have a Laserjet 4600 as the colour printer in our ICT suite. All of a sudden yesterday it kept asking for paper to be inserted, the teacher managed to get documents to print by taking out and re-inserting tray 2 for each sheet.
I had a look later, expecting it to be a driver setting or the wrong paper size, something standard. But it isnt. Even if you print a menu map or supplies page, it still asks you to put A4 in tray 1 and does nothing when you press the button to use another tray.
I powered it off for a while today then put it back on and did a supplies page again, and it came out of tray 2 straight away. But then the problem started again.
So it doesnt sound like there is anything physically wrong with the tray, it just seems to refuse to try to use it. When you print, with it set to A4 in tray 2, it doesnt even try to print from tray 2 and instantly just says insert A4 into tray 1 again
