It is important to load paper properly in the trays to prevent jams and loss of production time. The following guidelines will help ensure maximum efficiency of your printer operation. NOTE: When loading paper in the printer, you must use the procedure to set trays at the printer controller: •...
NOTE: The paper weight you specify using the tray weight indicator may be a different number than the one specified using the procedure to set trays at the printer controller. This is because you must specify weight in grams per square meter (gsm, or g/m any unit of measurement at the printer controller.
• NOTE: Many suppliers use arrows on the product labels to indicate the preferred side to image first. Use this side (as signaled by the arrow) as equivalent to the seam side when loading the paper. 3. Adjust the paper guides by pressing in the guide release and carefully moving the Edge Guide until it lightly touches the edge of the material in the tray.
Feeder trays NOTE: The Indicator light illuminates for the paper weight that you select. The Indicator is on the printer frame to the right of the tray and can be seen only when the tray is pulled out. Figure 1-3. Paper trays 1 and 2 weight indicator on the frame 5.
Loading paper tray 4 NOTE: In all trays that have the same size media, the media must be loaded in the same orientation (SEF or LEF). Tray 4, the optional high capacity paper tray, is operated through the control panel. Figure 1-5.
Feeder trays 2. Wait until the Ready to Open indicator is illuminated. Figure 1-7. Ready to Open indicator on tray 4 control panel 3. Open the tray 4 door. Figure 1-8. Tray 4 door open 4. Remove any remaining sheets from the elevator tray if you are changing paper stock.
2. End guides 3. Front edge paper stop NOTE: The Front Edge Paper Stop button has no functional use on the Xerox DocuColor 2060 NPS/IPS. 6. Select the paper weight. Although the trays have auto size detection capability, the paper weight (gsm) range must be selected on the weight indicator.

Tabbed inserts can be run from tray 4 but it is not recommended. When loading, the non-tabbed, short edge of the tabbed insert should be the lead edge to the printer and non-standard paper selected. If a jam occurs while running tabbed sets, there is no recovery procedure.
NOTE: If you are using drilled tabbed Inserts, you may experience sporadic jams caused by the holes passing over the sensors. Drilled paper Drilled paper can be run from tray 4 but it is not recommended. If you choose to run drilled paper from tray 4, follow the instructions below.
Letterhead Preprinted letterheads are produced using different inks and dry inks that may not pass through the printer intact. You should run a sample job through the printer to determine output quality. The loading orientation of letterhead paper depends on how the job is programmed.
This chapter explains how to unload the following optional finishing devices: • High-capacity stacker (HCS), which provides stacking and offsetting capabilities for output into a stacker cart • High-capacity stacker stapler (HCSS), which provides stacking, stapling, and offsetting capabilities for output into the HCSS offset catch tray, or to the top tray.
