Samsung ML-2450 Laser Printer - Loading Paper in the Tray

This document explains how to load paper in the tray.

Loading paper

Load the print paper used for most of the print jobs in Tray 1. Tray 1 can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of 20 lb. plain paper.
Users can purchase an optional tray (Tray 2) and attach it below the standard tray to load an additional 250 sheets of paper.
The paper level indicator on the front of Tray 1 and the optional Tray 2 shows the amount of paper currently left in the tray. When the tray is empty, the indicator of the bar is completely lowered.

Using the tray 1 or the optional tray 2

Use the print material used for most of the print jobs in Tray 1. Tray 1 can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of 75 g/m2 paper.
Users can purchase an optional Tray 2 and attach it below Tray 1 to load an additional 250 sheets of paper.
To load paper, pull open the tray and load paper with the side to be printed on face down.

Users can load letterhead paper with the design side face down. The top edge of the sheet with the logo should be placed at the front of the tray.
  • If users experience problems with paper feed, place one sheet at a time in the manual feed.
  • Users can load previously printed paper. The printed side should be facing up with an uncurled edge at the front. If users experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper around. Note that print quality is not guaranteed.

Changing the size of the paper in the tray 1

To load longer sizes of paper, such as Legal-sized paper, users need to adjust the paper guides to extend the paper tray.

Using the manual feeder

Users can manually load a sheet of print paper in the manual tray if users select Manual Feeder in the Source option from the Paper tab when users change print settings to print a document. See the Software Section. Manually loading paper can be helpful when users want to check the print quality after each page is printed.
Load paper sheet-by-sheet in the manual tray, send print data to print the first page, and press the Cancel button on the control panel to print each following page.
  1. Open the manual feeder.

  2. Load the paper with the side to be printed on facing up.

  3. Adjust the manual tray paper width guides to the width of the paper. Do not force too much, or the paper will bend, which might result in a paper jam or skew.

  4. When users print a document, set the paper source to Manual Feeder and select the appropriate paper size and type in the software application.
  5. Print a document.
  6. Press the Cancel button. The printer picks up the print paper and prints.
    If users do not press the Cancel button, after a pause the printer will automatically pick the print paper.
  7. Insert the next sheet into the manual tray and press the Cancel button. Repeat this step for every page to be printed.
    If envelopes or thick papers (163g/m2) are printed out with wrinkles, crease or black bold lines, open the rear cover and pull the guide of both sides down. Keep the rear cover opened during printing.
