Notes:

A flash drive icon appears on the printer control panel 

and in the held jobs icon when a flash drive is installed.

If you insert the flash drive when the printer requires 

attention, such as when a jam has occurred, then the 

printer ignores the flash drive.

If you insert the flash drive while the printer is processing 

other print jobs, then 

Busy

 appears. After these print 

jobs are processed, you may need to view the held jobs 

list to print documents from the flash drive.

Warning—Potential Damage: Do not touch the printer or the 

flash drive in the area shown while actively printing, reading, 

or writing from the memory device. Loss of data can occur.

Loading paper and specialty 

media

Loading trays

CAUTION—POTENTIAL INJURY: To reduce the risk of 

equipment instability, load each tray separately. Keep all 

other trays closed until needed.

Pull out the tray completely.

Note: Do not remove trays while a job prints or while 

Busy 

appears on the printer display. Doing so may cause a jam.

Squeeze and then slide the width guide tab to the correct 

position for the size of the paper you are loading.

Squeeze and then slide the length guide tab to the correct 

position for the size of the paper you are loading.

Notes:

For some paper sizes like letter, legal, and A4, squeeze 

and slide the length guide tab backward to 

accommodate their length.

When loading legal

size paper, the length guide extends 

beyond the base leaving the paper exposed to dust. To 

protect the paper from dust, you can purchase a dust 

cover separately. For more information, contact 

customer support.

If you are loading A6-size paper in the standard tray, 

then squeeze and then slide the length guide tab toward 

the center of the tray to the A6

size position.

them. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges 

on a level surface.

Load the paper stack.

Notes:

Load with the printable side facedown when using 

recycled or preprinted paper.

Load prepunched paper with the holes on the top edge 

toward the front of the tray.

Load letterhead facedown, with the top edge of the 

sheet toward the front of the tray. For two

sided printing, 

load letterhead faceup with the bottom edge of the 

sheet toward the front of the tray.

Make sure the paper is below the maximum paper fill 

indicator located on the side of the width guide.

Insert the tray.

sizes and types or specialty media, such as card stock, 

transparencies, paper labels, and envelopes. You can also use it 

for single

page print jobs on letterhead.

Pull the multipurpose feeder extender.

Pull the extender gently so that the multipurpose feeder is 

fully extended and open.

Squeeze the tab on the left width guide, and then move the 

guides for the paper you are loading.

then fan them. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten 

the edges on a level surface.

Hold transparencies by the edges. Flex the stack of 

transparencies back and forth to loosen them, and then fan 

them. Straighten the edges on a level surface.

Notes:

Do not force paper or specialty media into the 

multipurpose feeder.

Make sure the paper or specialty media is below the 

maximum paper fill indicator located on the paper 

guides. Overfilling may cause paper jams.

Load paper, transparencies, and card stock with the 

recommended printable side faceup and the top edge 

entering the printer first. For more information on loading 

transparencies, see the packaging that the transparencies 

came in.

Note: When loading A6

size paper, make sure the 

multipurpose feeder extender rests lightly against the 

edge of the paper so that the last few sheets of paper 

remain in place.

Load letterhead faceup with the top edge entering the 

printer first. For two

sided (duplex) printing, load letterhead 

facedown with the bottom edge entering the printer first.

Load envelopes with the flap on the left side facedown.

Warning—Potential Damage: Never use envelopes with 

stamps, clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, or 

self

stick adhesives. These envelopes may severely 

damage the printer.
