Loading Paper for Documents
You can print documents on a variety of paper types and sizes.
Close the output tray, if necessary.
Pull out the paper cassette.
Slide the edge guides outward.
If you are using legal-size paper, push the tab and extend the paper cassette.
Slide the edge guide shown below to your paper size.
Load a stack of paper, printable side down, against the edge guide as shown.
Make sure the paper is loaded against the edge guide and not sticking out from the end of the cassette.
Slide the edge guides against the paper, but not too tight.
Make sure the paper fits beneath the top edges of the guide.
To prevent paper feeding problems, make sure you do not load too much paper in the cassette.
Gently replace the paper cassette.
The paper may slide forward slightly as you insert the cassette. This is normal.
Extend the output tray and open the paper stopper.
If you are using legal-size or longer paper, do not open the paper stopper. Do not remove or insert the paper cassette during printing.
Always follow these paper loading guidelines:
Load only the recommended number of sheets.
Load paper short edge first, no matter which way your document faces.
Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge first.
Do not load paper above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.
Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions.
