G Attempting to print onto both sides of envelopes or postcards may result in misfeeds or poor prints. G Do not use paper that has already been printed on by a thermal transfer or inkjet printer. In particular, paper that has been printed on by a thermal transfer printer (such as a word processor that uses a cassette) may cause missing characters and smudges.
Printing onto envelopes G Do not use envelopes that have metal clasps, plastic snaps, string closures, windows, linings, self-adhesive patches or synthetic materials. Attempting to print on these may cause misfeeds, inadequate toner adherence or other trouble. G Creases or smudging may occur. This is especially true of embossed surfaces and other irregular surfaces. G Under high humidity and temperature conditions the glue flaps on some envelopes may become sticky and be sealed closed when printed.
Middle and lower paper trays: Up to 500 sheets of SHARP recommended plain paper can be loaded in these trays. The method of loading paper is the same as for paper tray 1 in the main unit. See the description (page 2-2).
