  • Before you buy a lot of paper, test a small quantity to make sure that the paper is suitable.
  • Use paper made for plain paper copying.
  • Use paper that is 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 g/m2).
  • Use labels and transparencies which are designed for use in laser machines.
  • Do not put different types of paper in the paper tray at the same time because it may cause paper jams or misfeeds.
  • For proper printing, you must choose the same paper size from your software application as the paper in the tray.
  • Avoid touching the printed surface of the paper immediately after printing.
  • When you use transparencies remove each sheet immediately to prevent smudging or paper jams.
  • Use long grain paper with a neutral Ph value, and a moisture content of approx. 5%.
  • DO NOT load envelopes, labels or bond paper into the paper tray. It may cause paper jams.
  • DO NOT use ink jet paper because it may cause a paper jam or damage your machine.
