How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

When the printer tells you to load tray 1 it means the size and or type of paper being asked by the print job does not match the same that the printer thinks it has in the tray.
Open Tray 1. Pull out the tray extension to support the paper. Use the adjustment latch to spread the paper guides outward. Load paper in the tray.
On the Windows taskbar, click the Windows icon ( ), and then click Devices and Printers. Right-click your product, and then select Printing Preferences. From the Printing Preferences menu, select Paper/Quality. From the Paper Source drop-down menu, select Tray 2.
Improve printer performance by selecting the optimum paper type for the tray. You can select from the following paper types: Tray 1. [Thin Paper], [Thick Paper 1], [Thick Paper 2], [Plain Paper], [Recycled Paper], [Color Paper], [Preprinted], [Prepunched], [Letterhead], [Bond Paper], [Cardstock], [Label Paper]
Generally when the printer tells you to print to tray 1 it means the job being sent to the printer is asking for a paper size and/or type that the printer does not think it has in any tray. Check you paper size and type settings for trays 2 and 3 and then check what each job is asking.
Open the System Setup menu, and then open the Paper Setup menu. Select the tray that you want to configure. Select Paper Type, and then select the desired paper type for the tray. Select Paper Size, and then select the desired paper size for the tray.
Tray 2 holds up to 250 sheets of 75 g/m2 paper.
Most times when this happens there is a mismatch between what the printer thinks it has in the paper tray and what the job is asking for. Most times if you set tray 2 for the correct size and then choose type as any it will solve the issue. The tray may be set for bond or something else.
The most common cause of the Surfer error “Print aborted Code = -1” is insufficient memory on the printer.
In Devices and Printers, open the Printer Properties. In the Ports tab, change the port setting to a different USB Virtual Printer Port.

Tray 1 (upper tray) paper feed problem
ANSWER : There is no way of adjusting the distance of lift. Could be that the pickup roller is worn enough that it will pick up a sheet that is higher, but not one that is lower down. You can look at the end of the roller that first makes contact and see if it is worn smooth.

HP Laserjet 2200, Tray 2 Pickup Problem, Gears Clicking
ANSWER : Definitely not a solenoid problem. I’ve worked on tens of thousands of printers and never replaced a single solenoid. You probably knocked something loose when you installed the pickup roller. Maybe something to do with the gear on the end of the pickup roller shaft. You’ll need to take the gear assembly off to be able to see it.

What repair needs to be done for a "50 needs repair" message on an HP Laserjet IIIP?
ANSWER : I don’t know what you mean by good toner cartridges. They haven’t been built in about 10 years, so if they are new OEMs in the box, they are guaranteed to fail. The 50 error on that printer is mostly a burned out fuser lamp. This site was sold, so as you can see, there are no more kits available.
