HP Designjet Z3100ps Photo Printer Series - Load a single sheet

Overview

There are two ways to load a sheet. The easy loading procedure is recommended.
  caution:
Any loaded roll or sheet must be unloaded before loading a sheet.
note:
For sheets thicker than 0.5 mm, you must have space behind the printer equal to the length of the sheet.

Easy loading procedure

  1. Standing in front of the printer, open the sheet tray. If the sheet is long, extend the right extension. If the sheet is also wide extend the left extension.
    note:
    If the tray is difficult to open, try opening from behind the printer.
    Figure : Sheet trays
    note:
    The extensions are seven cm and snap in place.
  2. Insert the sheet into the feeder. Load your sheet aligned with the load line and insert until the paper can not continue, with thicker sheets you feel resistance. The printer detects the sheet in three seconds. A countdown begins on the front-panel display.

      warning:
    Do not to push your fingers inside the printer's paper path.
  3. After the countdown, the paper feeds into the printer. Guide the sheet into the printer; this is especially important with thicker papers.
  4. The front-panel display asks if you are loading a roll or a sheet. Select Sheet with the Up and Down keys.
  5. Enter your paper category and type.

    note:
    Depending on the length of the sheet, it feeds out the front of the printer.
  7. If the paper has been loaded successfully, the front panel displays the Ready message and the printer ready to print. If the paper is not straight, follow the instructions on the front-panel display.
note:
When correctly loaded, the sheet is in the back of the printer.
