  • Page 56: Loading Tray 1

    Loading Tray 1 Note To avoid paper jams, do not load trays while the printer is printing. Tray 1 is a multi-purpose tray that holds a variety of paper, including up to 100 sheets of paper, 10 envelopes, or 20 index cards. The printer might pull paper from Tray 1 first.

  • Page 57: Loading Tray 2 (4050/4050 N)

    Loading Tray 2 (4050/4050 N) Tray 2 is a 500-sheet tray. The optional 500-sheet tray is adjusted differently (page 39). (Tray 2 and the optional 500-sheet tray can be interchanged in the printer.) Tray 2 adjusts for letter, A4, and legal sizes; these adjustments affect printer performance.

  • Page 58

    4 Load paper into the tray. For correct orientation, see page 46. 5 Make sure the paper is flat in the tray at all four corners and below the tabs on the guides. Slide the tray back into the printer. The printer automatically senses the size of paper loaded if the tray is adjusted correctly.

  • Page 59: Loading Trays 2 And 3 (4050 T/4050 Tn)

    Loading Trays 2 and 3 (4050 T/4050 TN) Trays 2 and 3 are 250-sheet trays. For supported sizes of paper, see page A-3. Choose A5 and B5 ISO as custom sizes in the printer driver for these trays (page 56). Note To avoid paper jams, do not load trays while the printer is printing.

  • Page 60

    4 Load paper into the tray. 5 Make sure the paper is flat in the tray at all four corners and below the tabs on the guides. Gently slide the tray back into the printer. The printer senses the size of paper loaded if the tray is adjusted correctly.

  • Page 63: Printing Both Sides Of Paper (optional Duplexer)

    Printing Both Sides of Paper (Optional Duplexer) The printer can automatically print on both sides of paper with an optional duplex printing accessory (duplexer). This is called duplexing. Note See the documentation included with the duplexer for complete installation and setup instructions. Duplexing might require additional memory (page C-1).

  • Page 64: Guidelines For Printing Both Sides Of Paper

    Guidelines for Printing Both Sides of Paper Caution Do not print on both sides of labels, transparencies, envelopes, or paper heavier than 28 lb (105 g/m ). Damage to the printer and paper jamming might result. WARNING! To avoid personal injury and damage to the printer, do not lift the printer with the duplexer installed.

  • Page 65: Paper Orientation For Printing Both Sides Of Paper

    Paper Orientation for Printing Both Sides of Paper The duplexer prints the second side of paper first, so paper such as letterhead and preprinted paper needs to be oriented as shown in Figure 9. Figure 9 Paper Orientation for Printing Both Sides of Paper For Tray 1, load the first side facing down and the top toward you.

  • Page 66: Layout Options For Printing Both Sides Of Paper

  • Page 77: Printing Transparencies

    Printing Transparencies Use only transparencies recommended for use in laser printers. For transparency specifications, see page A-10. • Load transparencies face up in Tray 1 with the top toward the printer. • A stack of 50 to 100 transparencies can be printed from other trays.

  • Page 78: Printing Cards, Custom-size, And Heavy Paper

    Note Choose A5 and B5 (ISO) as custom sizes in the printer driver for Tray 2 and Tray 3 (HP LaserJet 4050 T/4050 TN printers) and the optional 500-sheet tray. Settings for these sizes are marked in the tray, but custom settings must be selected in the software and from the printer’s control panel.

  • Page 79

    Guidelines for Printing Custom-Size Paper • Do not attempt to print on paper smaller than 3 inches (76 mm) wide or 5 inches (127 mm) long. • Set page margins at least .17 inch (4.23 mm) away from the edges. •...

  • Page 80

From the Printing Menu, select inches or millimeters as the unit of measurement. From the Printing Menu, set the X dimension (the front edge of the paper) as shown in Figure 16.

  • Page 81: Advanced Printing Tasks, Using Features In The Printer Driver

    Advanced Printing Tasks This section will help you take full advantage of the printer’s features. These tasks are “advanced” because they require you to change settings from the printer’s control panel or the printer driver. Using Features in the Printer Driver When you print from a software application, many of the printer’s features are available from the printer driver.

  • Page 82: Printer Driver Features

    RIP ONCE RIP ONCE allows the print job to be processed one time at the printer. The RIP ONCE capability creates an image of the page then saves a compressed image of the page into memory. RIP ONCE is enabled when a minimum of 16 MB of RAM or a hard disk is installed in the printer.

  • Page 83: Different First Page

    Different First Page Follow these instructions for printing a first page that is different from other pages in the print job. For Windows, select “Use different paper for first page” in your printer driver. Choose Tray 1 (or Manual Feed) for the first page and one of the other trays for the remaining pages.

  • Page 84: Printing Multiple Pages On One Sheet Of Paper

    Printing Multiple Pages on One Sheet of Paper You can print more than one page on a single sheet of paper. This feature is available in some printer drivers, and provides a cost-effective way to print draft pages. To print more than one page on a sheet of paper, look for a Layout or Pages Per Sheet option in the printer driver.

  • Page 85: Customizing Tray 1 Operation

    Customizing Tray 1 Operation Customize Tray 1 to fit your printing needs. The printer can be set to print from Tray 1 as long as it is loaded, or to print only from Tray 1 if the type of paper loaded is specifically requested.

  • Page 86: Manually Feeding Paper From Tray 1

    Manually Feeding Paper from Tray 1 The Manual Feed feature allows you to print on special paper from Tray 1, such as envelopes or letterhead. If Manual Feed is selected, the printer will print only from Tray 1. Select Manual Feed through the software or printer driver. Manual Feed can also be enabled from the Paper Handling Menu in the printer’s control panel.

  • Page 87: Printing By Type And Size Of Paper

    Printing by Type and Size of Paper You can configure the printer to select paper by type (such as plain or letterhead) and size (such as letter or A4), as opposed to source (a paper tray). Benefits of Printing by Type and Size of Paper If you frequently use several different kinds of paper, once trays are set up correctly, you do not have to check which paper is loaded in each tray before you print.

  • Page 88: Supported Types Of Paper

    From the software or printer driver, select the desired type and size of paper. Note The type and size settings can also be configured from HP Web JetAdmin and HP JetAdmin software for networked printers. See the printer driver help. To print by type and size, it might be necessary to unload or close Tray 1, or set TRAY 1 MODE=CASSETTE from the Paper Handling Menu in the printer’s control panel.

  • Page 89: Job Retention Features, Quick Copying A Job, Printing Additional Copies Of A Quick Copy Job

    Job Retention Features To use the job retention features listed below, you must install a hard disk in the printer and properly configure the drivers. Caution Make sure to identify your jobs in the printer driver before printing. Using default names may override previous jobs with the same default name or cause the job to be deleted.

  • Page 90: Deleting A Stored Quick Copy Job

    Deleting a Stored Quick Copy Job When a user sends a quick copy job, the printer overwrites any previous jobs with the same user and job name. If there is not a quick copy job already stored under the same user and job name and the printer needs additional space, the printer may delete other stored quick copy jobs starting with the oldest job.

  • Page 91: Proofing And Holding A Job, Printing The Remaining Copies Of A Held Job

    Proofing and Holding a Job The proof and hold feature provides a quick and easy way to print and proof one copy of a job and then print the additional copies. To permanently store the job and prevent the printer from deleting it when space is needed for something else, select the Stored Job option in the driver.

  • Page 92: Deleting A Held Job

    Deleting a Held Job When a user sends a proof and hold job, the printer automatically deletes that user’s previous stored proof and hold job. If there is not a proof and hold job already stored for that job name and the printer needs additional space, the printer may delete other stored proof and hold jobs starting with the oldest one.

  • Page 93: Printing A Private Job, Specifying A Private Job, Releasing A Private Job, Private/stored Jobs Menu

    Printing a Private Job The private printing feature lets a user specify that a job is not printed until that user releases it using a 4-digit personal identification number (PIN) through the printer’s control panel. The user specifies the PIN in the driver and it is sent to the printer as part of the print job.

  • Page 94: Deleting A Private Job

    Deleting a Private Job A private job is automatically deleted from the printer’s hard disk after the user releases it for printing, unless the user selects the Stored Job option in the driver.

  • Page 226

    The printer has two enhanced input/output (EIO) slots for expanding the printer’s capabilities with: • A network card. • A mass storage device, such as a hard disk. For ordering information, see page 9. To find out how much memory is installed in the printer, or to find out what is installed in the EIO slots, print a configuration page (page 134).

  • Page 227: Installing Memory

    Installing Memory Caution Static electricity can damage dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs). When handling DIMMs, either wear an antistatic wrist strap or frequently touch the surface of the DIMM’s antistatic package, then touch bare metal on the printer. If you have not already done so, print a configuration page to find out how much memory is installed in the printer before adding more memory...

  • Page 228

    5 Remove the DIMM from the antistatic package. Hold the DIMM with fingers against the side edges and thumbs against the back edge. Align the notches on the DIMM with the DIMM slot. (Check that the locks on each side of the DIMM slot are open, or outward.) 6 Press the DIMM straight into the slot (press firmly).

  • Page 229: Checking Memory Installation

    Checking Memory Installation Follow this procedure to verify that DIMMs are installed correctly: 1 Check that the printer’s control panel displays READY when the printer is turned on. If an error message appears, a DIMM might have been incorrectly installed. Check the printer messages (page 103).

    Adjusting Memory Settings Resource Saving Resource Saving allows the printer to keep downloaded resources (permanent downloaded fonts, macros, or patterns) in memory when the printer language or resolution is changed. If you do not have an optional hard disk or flash DIMM for storing downloaded resources, you might want to change the amount of memory allocated to each language when downloading an unusually large number of fonts, or if the printer is in a shared...

  • Page 231

    I/O Buffering To allow the computer to continue working without waiting for the print job to finish queuing, the printer uses a portion of its memory (an I/O buffer) to hold jobs in progress. (If I/O buffering is off, no memory is reserved for this function.) In most cases, it is best to let the printer automatically reserve memory for I/O buffering.

  • Page 232: Installing Eio Cards/mass Storage

    Installing EIO Cards/Mass Storage Turn off the printer before installing the EIO card or mass storage device. See Figure C-1 for orientation and location of the EIO card or optional mass storage device, such as a hard disk. Use HP Resource Manager to manage fonts on a mass storage device (page 25).
