Reduce the amount of paper you use by copying onto both sides of the paper.
  • You must choose a 2-sided copy layout from the following options before you can start 2-sided copying.
  • The layout of your original document determines which 2-sided copy layout you should choose.
  • To use the automatic 2-sided copy feature, you must load your document in the ADF.
  • When you manually make 2 sided copies from a 2-sided document, use the scanner glass.
  • (For models without the lever on the 2-sided tray) Select A4 sized paper when using the 2‑sided copy option.
  • (For models with the lever on the 2-sided tray) Select A4, Letter, Legal, Mexico Legal, India Legal or Folio sized paper when using the 2‑sided copy option.
  • Make sure the 2-sided tray is set to the correct paper size. If it is not, the paper may not be fed correctly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
