Note The manufacturer assumes no liability for problems that occur when paper not satisfying these requirements is used.
Handling Paper Minimum and Maximum Paper Sizes The minimum and maximum paper sizes are as follows. For non standard paper such as transparency, labels, vellum, cardstock, envelope, coated and thick, the MP (Multi-Purpose) tray must be used. Paper Cassette MP Tray Minimum Minimum Paper Size...
Handling Paper Selecting the Right Paper This section describes the guidelines for selecting paper. Condition Avoid using paper that is bent at the edges, curled, dirty, torn, embossed, or contaminated with lint, clay, or paper shreds. Use of paper in these conditions can lead to illegible printing and paper jams, and can shorten the life of the machine.
Handling Paper Smoothness The paper should have a smooth, uncoated surface. Paper with a rough or sandy surface can cause voids in the printed output. Paper that is too smooth can cause multiple feeding and fogging problems. (Fogging is a gray background effect.) Basis Weight Basis weight is the weight of paper expressed in grams per square meter...
Handling Paper are having problems with paper jams and blurred printing the paper may be too thick. The correct thickness is 0.086 to 0.110 mm (3.4 to 4.3 mils). Moisture Content Moisture content is defined as the percent ratio of moisture to the dry mass of the paper.
Handling Paper Packaging: Paper should be packed in a sturdy carton to protect it from damage during transport. Quality paper obtained from a reputable supplier is usually correctly packaged. Note You might see the printer emitting steam in the area around the top tray if you use damp paper, but it is safe to continue printing.
Handling Paper Special Paper The following types of special paper can be used: Paper Type to be Used Paper Type to be Selected Thin paper (60 to 64 g/m²) VELLUM Thick paper (90 to 220 g/m²) THICK Colored paper COLOR Recycled paper RECYCLED Overhead projector transparencies...
Handling Paper To prevent printing problems, feed transparencies into the printer one sheet at a time from the MP tray. Always load the transparencies vertically (with the long edge towards the printer). If the transparencies have rough edges on the back, it may cause a paper jam.
Handling Paper Postcards Fan the stack of postcards and align the edges before loading them in the MP tray. Make sure the postcards you are going to set are not curled. Feeding curled postcards may cause paper jams. Some postcards have rough edges on the back (those are created when Rough the paper is cut).
Handling Paper When you load envelopes or cardstock in the MP tray Load envelope with the print side facing up. Close the flap. Cardstock Open the flap. (Hagaki) Return postcard Landscape Portrait (Oufuku Hagaki) form form envelopes envelopes Note Use unfolded return postcard (Oufuku Hagaki). Thick Paper Fan the stack of paper and align the edges before loading them in the MP tray.
Handling Paper Colored Paper Colored paper should satisfy the same conditions as white bond paper, refer to Paper Specifications on page 3-2. In addition, the pigments used in the paper must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the printing process (up to 200 °C or 392 °F).
Handling Paper Paper Type The printer is capable of printing under the optimum setting for the type of paper being used. Setting the paper type for the paper source from the printer’s operation panel will cause the printer to automatically select the paper source and print in the mode best suited to that type of paper.
Handling Paper Loading Paper The following explains the procedure for loading paper in the cassette and the MP tray. Loading Paper into the Cassette Fan the media (paper/transparencies), then tap it on a level surface to avoid media jams or skewed printing. Pull the paper cassette all the way out of the printer.
