Step two: Load paper

  1. Open the Output tray. The Input tray opens automatically.
  2. Load up to 20 sheets of photo paper with the print side or glossy side facing the front of the printer. If you are using tabbed paper, load the paper so tab feeds in last. When loading, slide the paper to the left side of the Input tray and push the paper down firmly until it stops.

  2. Hold the print cartridge with the label on top. Slide the cartridge at a slight upward angle into the cradle so the copper-colored contacts go in first. Push the cartridge until it snaps into place.

  3. Close the print cartridge door.
  4. If the print cartridge is new, the printer prints an alignment page to confirm that the alignment was successful. This may take a few minutes.

    The check marks verify that the print cartridge is installed correctly and functioning properly.
    If an "x" is displayed to the left of any of the bars, align the print cartridge again.
