OfficeJet Pro 7740 Find Tray 2 on Mac


Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂 

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers. 


As I understand your Officejet Pro 7740 isn't recognizing tray 2 on Mac,

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

Did you ensure your printer supports the paper size of 11x17?

(Click here to verify the same)


While you respond to that, here's a few things that have helped others:

The following relevant resource will show you how to set tray 2 as the default and with the right paper sizes:

I have the printer set up correctly from everything listed. There is no option to select a tray and the printer will still not use tray 2 when I send an 11x17 pdf document.
