Step 1: Remove the printer from the box

The contents might vary by country/region. See the packaging for a list of items shipped in the box.
Remove the printer from the box and all tape, stickers, and packing materials from the printer.
note:
The toner cartridge comes preinstalled in your printer. You do not need to remove the toner cartridge from the printer.

  2. Remove all tape and packing materials from the outside of the printer, and then remove the film from the printer control panel.

Load plain paper, such as A4, U.S. letter, or U.S. legal, into the main input tray.
