MS Word jams printer onto manual paper feed only! -- FIX




Some one recently sent me a Word doc that had different settings to mine and stuffed up the printer settings!
What happened is that evey time I went to print it said MANUAL PAPER FEED only!
I spent 3 days manually shoving paper into the printer thinking about how many ways I could fix it!

GOT IT!

Edit the registry here:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\#.0\Word\***PRINTERS NAME***

Code:
I didn't change the printer driver, I can see how this could happen if all I did was change the driver.
Other software may have similar registry entries identifying a default tray that become invalid due to a change in Windows.

What I did was to open upon both regedit and word and under the ***PRINTERS NAME*** folder I modified the DefaultBin reg entry to "1" which equals "Tray1"...

-----------------------------------

Registry values for printer DefaultBin.
1 = Tray1
4 = Manual Feed
7 = AutoSelect

-----------------------------------




Second regedit was to add AlternatePaperSourceUse = 0 in this location to stop the corruption from before...





... and then I set the 'Page Setup' and 'Printer Options' in Word to "Tray1".
