Because the printer uses the MP tray as both a manual feed tray and a paper cassette, manual feed works differently than for earlier LaserJets. If you place a piece of media in the MO tray, manual feed will not automatically be selected unless you are in the MP TRAY=FIRST mode.

|22 ERROR||For serial/bi-tronics parallel configuration, the computer and printer are not communication because of improper signal protocols. This is an I/O buffer overrun error.Parallel configuration: may mean a loose cable connection. Serial configuration: wrong pacing option may have been selected. (If you are using an RS-232C serial connection, the HP LaserJet printer uses XON/XOFF and DTR/DSR signal protocols rather than ETX/ACK protocol.)||Press Continue to clear the error message (data will be lost). Refer to the printer's manual to verify the printer configuration. If the error continues, call your dealer or HP Service representative. Parallel configuration: check for loose cable. Serial configuration: check for correct serial pacing option.If you are using an I/O card other than the standard serial/bi-tronics parallel I/O card supplied with he printer, refer to the manual for that device or contact your dealer. If you are on a network, contact your network administrator.|
|40 ERROR||The printer encountered an error while transferring data from he computer. For serial I/O configuration, the error may have occurred because you turned you computer on or off while the printer was on line or your printer's baud rate or parity was not the same as the computer's. For network MIO cards, this means there was an abnormal connection break.||Make sure the printer is set at the same baud rate as the computer. (If you are using an interface other than the serial/bi-tronics parallel I/O, refer to the user's manual for that product.) Press Continue to clear the error message.|
|41.[X] ERROR||A temporary error occurred while printing. This error most commonly occurs when the paper size knob on the 250 or 500-sheet universal cassette does not match the installed paper, the wrong size media is loaded into a cassette, or the printer picks up two sheets of paper at once.||Ensure
that the paper size knob is set for the installed paper.
