The HP LaserJet 5200 is a high-end laser printer that has three paper feed trays. The printer feeds from the first tray by default, but if this tray is damaged or contains the wrong sized paper, you may wish to change it to pull from tray 2 by default. There is a setting buried within the printer's menu controls that will enable you to switch your default tray feed.
