Try hooking the printer to another machine (like a PC) and see if you
can print from another tray. I had a devil of a time with a second hand
4029 until I realized that it wasn't being wrongly told to feed only from
the top tray, but rather than the feed roller in the bottom was too worn
to reliably pick up a sheet and the printer was giving up and trying
the other tray in desperation. If you can get it to work properly off a
PC, then try it again on the AS/400 (without turning the printer off,
if possible, to avoid resetting the thing if the PC driver rearranged
some settings).
