    I have an OfficeJet 3830 printer and I am trying to put the thing back in place that holds the paper in the back of the printer. I am not familiar with the terms. It holds the blank paper in the back of the printer. Do you have part of the manual that shows what to do? I need a printed manual for that part. thank you very much
