Load paper into my Brother machine's paper tray.

Loading paper in the tray

Load only one size and type of paper in the tray at one time.
To load paper into the tray, follow these steps:

Before you add the paper, remove all of the paper that is currently in the tray.

  1. Fan the stack of paper well to avoid jams and misfeeds.

  2. Tap the stack of paper on a hard surface so that its edges are even.

  3. Gently insert the paper into the tray print side down.


Setting the Paper Size

When you change the size of the paper you load into your Brother machine, you must also change the machine's Paper Size setting.
