HP LaserJet P3005 default printing issues
Posted on 2010-09-24
I have a HP P3005 LaserJet printer attached to a Dell workstation (Win XP) via USB. Installed all the necessary print drivers off the HP driver’s disc. Workstation detects the printer with no issues.
When I try to print from MS Word (or any other program) using the printer icon, I have to physically click the green check mark on the printer twice in order for the print to start. I also get this message on the printer: MANUALLY FEED PLAIN PAPER.
Why am I getting this issue? How can I change the default tray to tray number 2 (contains the plain 8.5x11" paper)? I have changed settings in the printer and properties of the printer driver with no luck. This printer is a piece of junk!
I just want to click the print icon on any program, and it automatically prints without issue. Please help. Thank you.
