Get printer message I don't understand

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have HP Color LaserJet MFP M281 cdw.  I am getting printer messages I do not understand.  Example:  Unexpected Paper Size. Load Oficio in Tray 2.  But I do not have a tray 2 and tray 1 is correctly loaded.

@dgh43, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Let us try these steps:

 

Reset the printer

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  4. Turn ON the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
  5. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.

 

Try making a standalone copy and check if that works. By this, we can conclude if this is a hardware or a driver issue.

 

If the issue persists, we will have to perform a NVRAM reset on the printer.

I have sent you a private message with a set of instructions to perform a reset. Kindly check the same, this might help you to resolve this issue. Check next to your profile name, you should see a little blue envelope, please click on it.  

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
