We have purchased a number of DELL 5100CN printers and additional 500 sheet paper tray units.
Can the printer be configured the stop/pause printing when a given tray runs out of paper rather than continuing the job by taking paper from another tray.
For example, Tray 1 contains A4 paper (white paper) and is set to Plain 1 within the Tray Settings on the printer. Tray 2 also contains A4 paper (blue paper) and is set to Plain 2.
If Tray 1 contains only two sheets of white paper and I print a five page report (which should print on white paper) it will use Tray 1 first (the default) and then take the last 3 sheets from Tray 2 (blue paper)
What I want the printer to do is to stop printing after page 2 (when Tray 1 is empty) and await operator intervention when the tray can be refilled with the correct paper. The print job should then continue using the paper from Tray 1
(We do a similiar thing on our HP Laserjet 5 by locking the traty when it becomes empty)
