you may also want to check the paper sizes, as sending a sheet that is too "large" for a printer to handle can result in a second sheet coming through, particularly on older (stupider) printers.

Nothing in Seperator Page, paper size is set to letter, Will this help u ( the second tray of the printer is not working). I just disabled the second tray in the device settings and job prints with second page blank.

I've had this problem before.  I solved it by switching to ths PostScript (PS) drivers for the printers.
