printer will not pull paper from tray1 or tray2 -- laserjet M608

I cannot get the printer to use paper from tray1 or tray 2.  If there is no paper in tray3 it asks for paper and does not print until tray3 is filled.  Therefore output is only from tray3.

What happens if you only have paper in tray 2? In order for the printer to automatically pull from tray 2 when 3 is empty you must ensure that paper size and type settings are identical. There is also a tray behaviour setting called "use requested tray" and this option should be set to first, not exclusively.
