Close the paper stopper and output tray, if necessary.
Pull out the paper cassette.
If you are loading paper in the optional cassette, remove the paper cassette cover.
Slide the edge guides outward.
If you are using legal-size paper, squeeze the tab and extend the paper cassette.
Set the front edge guide to the paper size you are using.
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 tightly.
If you are loading paper in the optional cassette, reattach the paper cassette cover.
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.
Keep the cassette flat as you gently insert it.
Select the size and type of paper you just loaded on the product LCD screen.
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 the printable side facedown.
Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge first.
Do not load paper above the arrow mark inside the edge guides.
Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions.
