    note:
    After loading the paper, set up the printer for the paper type and size. The settings made from the printer driver override the settings on the control panel.

Changing the size of paper in the paper input tray

To load longer sizes of paper, such as Legal-sized paper, adjust the paper guides to extend the paper input tray.
  1. After pressing and unlatching the guide lock (1), slide the paper length guide out completely to extend the paper tray to its full length (2).

Loading paper in the manual feeder

Use the manual feeder to print transparencies, labels, envelopes or postcards in addition to making quick runs of paper types or sizes that are not currently loaded in the paper input tray.
Tips on using the manual feeder:
  • Print materials should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the manual feeder first and placed in the center of the tray.
  • To ensure print quality and to prevent paper jams, only load the specified print media.
  • When printing on 76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 inches) sized media using the manual feeder, open the rear cover when printing.
  • When printing on transparencies, open the rear cover. If not, they may tear while exiting the printer.
Use the instructions for loading paper into the multi-purpose tray.
  1. Load a sheet of the print material with the side to be printed on facing up in the center of the manual feeder.
    Figure : Using the manual feeder
    Depending on the paper type, use the following loading method:
    • Envelopes: load a sheet with the flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left side.
    • Transparencies: load a sheet with the print side up and the top with the adhesive strip entering the printer first.
    • Labels: load a sheet with the print size up and top short edge entering the printer first.
    • Preprinted paper: load a sheet with the design face up, top edge toward the printer.
    • Card: load a sheet with the print side up and the short edge entering the printer first.
  2. Adjust the manual feeder guides to the width of the print material without bending it.

  3. After loading paper, set the paper type and size for the manual feeder.
    note:
    The settings made from the printer driver override the settings on the control panel.
  4. If necessary, open the rear cover to print special media.

Printing on special media
