Loading Paper in the Rear MP (Multipurpose) Tray

You can print documents on a variety of paper types and sizes.
  1. 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.
  2. Pull up the rear MP tray.

  3. Flip the feeder guard forward, then slide the edge guides outward.

  4. Insert paper, glossy or printable side up and short edge first, in the center of the tray. If you are inserting a stack of paper, fan the sheets first and tap the stack on a flat surface to even the edges.

    To prevent paper feeding problems, make sure you do not load too much paper in the tray.
  5. Slide the edge guides against the paper, but not too tightly.

Always follow these paper loading guidelines:
Note: You can load binder paper with holes in the rear MP tray. The paper must be one of the following sizes: Letter (8.5 × 11 inches [216 × 279 mm]), A4 (8.3 × 11.7 inches [210 × 297 mm]), or Legal (8.5 × 14 inches [216 × 357 mm]). The holes must be within 0.74 inch (19 mm) of the left edge of the page.
