Media-handling problems

Use the information in this section when the device experiences media-handling problems.

Print-media guidelines

For best results, make sure that the paper is of good quality, and free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots,
loose particles, dust, wrinkles, voids, staples, and curled or bent edges.
For best-quality color printing, use a smooth type of paper. Generally, smoother media produces
better results.
If you are unsure what type of paper you are loading (such as bond or recycled), check the label
on the package of paper.
Do not use media that is designed for Inkjet printers only. Use media that is designed for color
LaserJet printers.
Do not use letterhead paper that is printed with low-temperature inks, such as those used in some
types of thermography.
Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.
The device uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper. Make sure that any colored paper
or preprinted forms use inks that are compatible with this fusing temperature (210° C or 410° F for
0.2 second).
CAUTION
