Loading Paper for Photos in the Cassette

You can print photos on a variety of paper types and sizes. You can load photo paper in these sizes: 4 × 6 inches (102 × 152 mm), 5 × 7 inches (127 × 178 mm), 8 × 10 inches (203 × 254 mm). If your product has two cassettes, you can only load photo paper in Cassette 1.
  1. Close the paper stopper and output tray, if necessary.

  2. Pull out the paper cassette and remove the paper cassette cover.

  3. Slide the edge guides outward.

  4. Slide the edge guide to your paper size.

  5. Load photo paper, printable side down, against the edge guide as shown.

    Note: Make sure the paper is loaded against the edge guide and not sticking out from the end of the cassette.
  6. Slide the edge guides against the paper, but not too tightly.

    Note: Make sure the paper fits beneath the top edges of the guides.
    To prevent paper feeding problems, make sure you do not load too much paper in the cassette.
  7. Close the paper cassette cover and gently insert the paper cassette.

    Note: The paper may slide forward slightly as you insert the cassette. This is normal.
  8. When prompted by the product's LCD screen, select the size and type of the paper you just loaded and select OK.
  9. Extend the output tray and open the paper stopper.

    Note: 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 photo faces.
    • Load the printable side facedown.
    • Do not load paper above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.
    • Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions.
