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.

Make sure the width and length guides are aligned with the
paper size indicators on the bottom of the tray.

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.

and print quality problems.

Loading the multipurpose feeder

Use the multipurpose feeder when printing on different paper sizes
and types or specialty media, such as card stock, transparencies, and
envelopes. You can also use it for single

page print jobs on letterhead.

Load the paper or specialty media.

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.

From the printer control panel, set the paper size and paper type
in the Paper menu to match the paper or specialty media loaded
in the multipurpose feeder.

Clearing jams

Understanding jam messages and
locations

When a jam occurs, a message indicating the jam location and
information to clear the jam appears on the printer display. Open the
doors, covers, and trays indicated on the display to remove the jam.

Notes:

When Jam Assist is set to On, the printer automatically flushes
blank pages or pages with partial prints to the standard bin after
a jammed page has been cleared. Check your printed output
stack for discarded pages.

When Jam Recovery is set to On or Auto, the printer reprints
jammed pages. However, the Auto setting does not guarantee
that the page will print.
