    • When you are using Legal, Ledger or A3 size paper, press the universal guide release button (1) as you slide out the front of the paper tray. Make sure that when using Legal or Ledger or A3 size paper, the triangular mark on the output paper tray cover is aligned with the line indicating Legal (2) or Ledger or A3 (3) size, as shown in the illustration.

    • If you are using A5 or smaller size paper, make sure that the paper tray is not extended.

      When you load a different paper size in a tray, you will need to change the paper size setting in the machine at the same time.

    Always make sure that the paper is not curled or wrinkled.

    Check that the paper is flat in the tray.

    • When adding new sheets of paper into the tray, DO NOT just slide the new sheets of paper on top of the paper in the tray. We recommend that you set new paper after the last paper is fed in the paper feed tray and the paper tray is empty.

    • When you put Photo L size into the paper tray, you need to release the hinges on both sides of the output paper tray cover, and push the cover over. And then slide the paper length guide.

  6. Gently adjust the paper side guides to fit the paper with both hands.
    Make sure the paper side guides touch the sides of the paper.

    Be careful that you do not push the paper in too far; it may lift at the back of the tray and cause feed problems.


     

  7. Close the output paper tray cover.
    Check that the paper is flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark (1).
    Over filling the paper tray may cause paper jams.
