Error msg "Load 8 x 17 Tray" when trying to print from any application. Computer is one of 4 identical IBM EduQuest model Thirty's Connected to same printer. All running Windows 3.1, all using Corel Word Perfect 6.1 for Windows, all running same driver. Driver is pcl driver for HP LaserJet model 4MV, lj250.
I downloaded the driver from HP. Three of the four machines print correctly. The forth gives error printer is out of paper and printer displays message to change trays.  I have changed cables, and reinstalled the driver twice with same results.

Go to that 4th machine, in printer setup and change the paper size to the size selected on the machines which work!

As you may be aware, you can set up the printer defaults to reflect A4, first tray etc. I suggest you look at the windows printer defaults and ajust them to reflect the paper and trays you use. This is done on the PC. You may find somebody made this adjustment and now requires changing back.

The setup is entirely new. New driver install, new cables. All four machines are using defalt settings. Paper size defaults to 8 1/2 x 11, portrait.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?

I had similar problems like these. the problem isn't with the printer ! it's in the software ! go to "page setup" (probably in  the File menu) and set the page size to A4 or which ever size you're using.
if this problem persists then you should probably change the default template for your application (don't know how to do it in WordPerfect).

Hope this helps,
Arnon David.

the default paper size may be different if the default country settings in WIN (not printer) are different, or the settings in the software from where u are prinring are different!

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!
