HPPCL5E.DRV Does Not Save Paper Tray Selection


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.1, 3.11
  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups versions 3.1, 3.11


The Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 4 printer driver, HPPCL5E.DRV, does not save paper tray selections.


The HPPCL5E.DRV printer driver supports the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 4, 4M, 4SI, and 4SI MX printers. If you change the Paper Source setting for your printer in the Setup dialog box in Control Panel, the selection remains for that Windows session but reverts back to the default Auto Select option when you reenter Windows.


To work around this situation, edit the WIN.INI file and manually change the "tray" selection in the [HP LaserJet 4/4M or 4SI/4SI MX] driver section to one of the following:

   1  MP Tray
   2  Paper Cassette
   4  Manual Feed
   5  Envelope Feeder
   7  Auto Select
   11 Lower Cassette 

For example:

   [HP LaserJet 4/4M,LPTx]
