I have the 8630 with 2 trays installed. I have white paper loaded in Tray 1 and pink paper loaded in Tray 2. It is used via my network with a static IP address.
I want to have both printers listed in my Device and Printers as list below:
HP Officejet Pro 8630 (Network) - Tray 1 (White)
HP Officejet Pro 8630 (Network) - Tray 2 (Pink)
I want to be able to be able to select which printer to use depending on a couple of different applications I use.
I tried adding the printer with all the same settings other than the default tray, but when I try to print using the HP Officejet Pro 8630 (Network) - Tray 2 (Pink) I get the following message:
Error Printing on HP Officejet Pro 8630 (Network) - Tray 2 (Pink) - The printer could not print the text page.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can't install the same printer ower network with the same IP address 2 times and make them to work as you want.
If a USB connection is an option you can install white one over a network and pink one over USB that will work.

Yes, is you have only one printer installed, then you need to manually select what tray you want to use, it's 2 mouse click more.
