HP PageWide Enterprise, HP PageWide Managed - Load paper to Tray 2

Introduction

The following information describes how to load paper into Tray 2 and the optional 550-sheet trays. These trays hold up to 550 sheets of 75 g/m2 paper.
  caution:
Do not extend more than one paper tray at a time. Do not use paper tray as a step. Keep hands out of paper trays when closing. All trays must be closed when moving the printer.
note:
The procedure to load paper for all 550-sheet trays is the same as for Tray 2. Only Tray 2 is shown here.

Load Tray 2 and the 550-sheet trays

  1. Open the tray.
    note:
    Do not open this tray while it is in use.
    Figure : Open the tray
  2. Adjust the paper-length and paper-width guides by squeezing the blue adjustment latches and sliding the guides to the size of the paper being used.
    Figure : Adjust the guides
  3. Load paper into the tray. Check the paper to verify that the guides touch the stack, but do not bend it. For information about how to orient the paper, see Tray 2 and the 550-sheet trays paper orientation.
    note:
    To prevent jams, do not overfill the tray. Be sure that the top of the stack is below the tray full indicator.
    note:
    If the tray is not adjusted correctly, an error message might appear during printing or the paper might jam.
