Load Tray 3
This tray holds up to 500 sheets of 75 g/m2 paper. If the paper is heavier, the tray does not hold as many sheets. Do not overfill the tray.
  caution:
Do not print envelopes, postcards, or unsupported sizes of paper from Tray 3. Print these types of paper only from Tray 1.
  1. Slide open the tray.
      note:
    Do not open the tray while it is in use.
  2. Adjust the paper-length and paper-width guides by squeezing the adjustment latches and sliding the guides to the size of the paper being used.
  3. Load paper into the tray face-up. Check the paper to verify the guides lightly touch the stack, but do not bend it.
      note:
    To prevent jams, do not overfill the tray. Be sure the top of the stack is below the tray–full indicator.
      note:
    If the tray is not adjusted correctly, an error message might display during printing or the paper might jam.
  4. Slide the tray into the product.
  5. The control panel shows the tray’s paper type and size. If the configuration is not correct, follow the instructions on the control panel to change the size or type.
  6. For custom-size paper, you need to specify the X and Y dimensions for the paper
Automatic paper sensing (auto-sense mode)
The automatic paper type sensor functions when a tray is configured to the Any Type or Plain setting.
After it has picked up paper from the tray, the product can detect overhead transparencies, paper weight, and gloss level.
For more control, select a specific paper type for the job or configure the tray for a specific paper type.
Auto-sense settings
Follow the steps below to configure the auto-sense settings.
  note:
The steps vary according to the type of control panel.

    This is the default setting for all trays.
