Xerox-printer giving error code 016-799

Just figured out that some Xerox-printers when getting a job with a unknown paper format or other strange settings. The printer will simply return the error code 016-799.

The only solution i has found for this so far is to make sure that the print jobs actually have a paper format that the printer supports. (And of course, no other strange settings…)

Pdf-files for example can in some cases have print settings embedded, so it is extra smart to check those before printing them.

Just found out that the error due to the physical setting of the paper tray. There is a green adjustable paper size ‘lever’ that must be adjusted according to the paper itself.
