multi-sheet feeder A3 won't print a landscape format drawing

HP Recommended
T125
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm trying to print A3 Solidworks drawings on a T125 via the multisheet feed tray. A3 is loaded as portrait but the drawings on the computer preview as landscape. When I hit print I get a message saying that the paper needs to be 420mm wide (landscape A3) but I only have paper 296mm wide (portrait A3). If I change the orientation in the print dialog box, the print is either scaled to the paper width or errors again as the print exceeds the paper width.

There is an auto rotate function available for printing from roll but it is disabled for multisheet operations. I can print A3 PDF's (with auto portrait/ landscape setting enabled) of drawings but not print the same drawings directly.

I also don't have this problem printing to other (non HP) A4/A3 printers, so it is not strictly speaking a Solidworks issue. I can't find anything in the manual, printer properties or in the printer menus that could fix this.

As above, it is a (Designjet) T125. The box lists the product code as 5ZY57A
