LJ4050 -- wont print till you hit the 'Go' button

I have a bunch of LJ4050's, which were all set up identically, and shared by assorted users. Recently one of them has developed a problem where it refuses to print until someone hits the Go button.

If relevant, we use tray 1 for an envelope feeder, 2 for letterhead paper, 3 for plain paper. The printer has done around 800,000 copies and uses the 4050 PCL driver. I seem to recall a similar problem with a different type of printer which required a file to be sent to the printer to reset it (default.pjl?) but can't find anything resembling this on the 4050's driver cd.

Anyone recently butted heads with a 4050 or have any ideas on how to proceed? Users are threatening bodily harm due to the amount of walking around its making them do..

first: check in printer is default paper size A4 in tray 2
second: control panel->printer->lj4050 properies (check paper size. Everywhere must be A4 and in General -> Paper available you can check it.)

example(all must work):

Paper available:
A4

example(you must press Go button):

Paper available:
letter

example(you must press Go button):

Paper available:
letter
A4
