Introduction

The following information describes how to load paper in Tray 2 and the optional 550-sheet trays (part number F2A72A). These trays hold up to 550 sheets of 75 g/m2 paper.
note:
The procedure to load paper for the 550-sheet trays is the same as for Tray 2. Only Tray 2 is shown here.
note:
The paper guides may be locked before use and may not be adjustable.
  caution:
Do not extend more than one paper tray at a time.
  1. Open the tray.
    note:
    Do not open this tray while it is in use.

    This step does not apply to other paper sizes.
  5. Load paper into the tray. For information about how to orient the paper, see Tray 2 and the 550-sheet trays paper orientation.
    note:
    Do not adjust the paper guides tightly against the paper stack. Adjust them to the indentations or markings in the tray.
    note:
    To prevent jams, adjust the paper guides to the correct size and do not overfill the tray. Be sure that the top of the stack is below the tray full indicator, as shown in the enlargement in the illustration.
