Paper Tray Issue

Envy 5661

I turned my printer on this morning and the paper tray was empty.  I filled the tray (letter) but it began to grind and said that the photo tray was empty.  I did not set it to print photos. Sigh

Paper Tray Issue

Hi @MmeJersey


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the tray issue.


To better assist you - Are you trying to print from the HP Smart app or through AirPrint? 


 Select tray from the printer's control panel - 


From the printer's control panel, touch Setup Menu > Preferences > Tray or Paper Management

  • Main Tray

  • Photo Tray

Once the desired paper tray is selected, Airprint will automatically detect the tray.


If the issue still persists, try updating your iOS device - Update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch


Also, try updating the printer's firmware - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
