Paper Handling Print Media Guidelines Storing Print Media Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications Selecting an Output Location Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray Using the MPF (Multi purpose feeder) Setting the Paper Size Setting the Paper Type Setting the Paper Tray Tray Behavior...
Print Media Guidelines Print media is paper, card stock, transparencies, labels, and envelopes. Your printer provides high quality printing on a variety of print media. Selecting the appropriate print media for your printer helps you to avoid printing problems. This chapter provides information on how to help you make print media selections, how to care for the print media, and how to load it in the tray 1, optional tray 2, or MPF.
Moisture Content The amount of moisture in the paper affects both print quality and the ability of the printer to feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original wrapper until you are ready to use it. This limits the exposure of the paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance. Grain Direction Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper.
Unacceptable Paper The following papers are not recommended for use with the printer: • Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper • Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the printer •...
Selecting Preprinted Forms and Letterhead paper Use the following guidelines when selecting preprinted forms and letterhead paper for the printer: • Use long grain papers for best results. • Use only forms and letterheads printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
Printing on a Letterhead paper Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the preprinted letterhead paper that you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers. Page orientation is important when printing on a letterhead paper. Use the following table for help when loading a letterhead paper in the print media sources.
Selecting Prepunched Paper Prepunched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques. Use the following guidelines to select and use prepunched paper: • Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of pre-punched paper.
• To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers. • For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m (20 lb bond) paper. You can use up to 90 g/m (24 lb bond) weight for the MPF as long as the cotton content is 25 percent or less.
NOTE: You can improve the printing quality of envelopes by pulling down the rear door to open and pushing the two blue pressure levers down. This instruction will be especially helpful for DL and C5 size envelopes. • A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.
• Remove a 0.125 in. (3 mm) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the printer. • Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes. • Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive. Card Stock Card stock is single ply, and has a large array of properties, such as the moisture content, thickness, and texture, that can significantly affect print quality.
Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications The following tables provide information on standard and optional sources, including the print media sizes that you can select from the paper size menu and supported weights. NOTE: If you use a print media size not listed, select the next larger size. Media Input Capacity Paper Paper Tray (tray 1 and optional tray 2) MPF...

Selecting an Output Location The printer has two output locations; the output tray (face down) and the rear door (face up). Rear Door Output Tray To use the output tray, ensure that the rear door is closed. To use the rear door, open it. NOTE: If paper coming out of the output tray has problems, such as excessive curl, try printing to the rear door.
Printing to the Output Tray (Face down) The output tray collects printed paper face-down, in the correct order. The tray should be used for most print jobs. If necessary, expand the paper output extension to keep the print media from falling off the output tray.
Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray You can load approximately 250 sheets of plain paper in the tray 1 or the optional tray 2. If you purchased the optional tray 2, see "Installing an Optional Tray 2" for installing instructions. For faxing, you can use A4, letter or legal paper only.
Using the MPF (Multi purpose feeder) Use the MPF to print transparencies, labels, envelopes or postcards in addition to making quick runs of paper types or sizes that are not currently loaded in the paper tray. Postcards, 3.5 by 5.83 in. (index) cards and other custom-sized materials can be printed with this printer.
Load the print material with the side to be printed on facing up Depending on the paper type you are using, keep the following loading method: • Envelopes: load them with the flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left side.
After loading paper, set the paper type and size for the MPF. See "Setting the Paper Type" for copying and faxing or "Paper Tab" for Computer printing. NOTE: The settings made from the printer driver override the settings on the operator panel. CAUTION: Ensure that the rear door opens when you print on transparencies.
Setting the Paper Size After loading paper in the paper tray, you need to set the paper size from the operator panel. This setting will apply to Fax and Copy modes. For Computer printing, you need to select the paper type in the application program you use. Press Setup Machine Setup from the main screen.
Setting the Paper Tray This feature allows you to select the tray and paper that you want to use for a printing job. Paper size and paper tray are adjusted here. Setting the Tray linking If tray 1 and tray 2 are filled with letter size paper, when tray1 is empty and this option is On, then the machine continues printing using the paper in tray 2.
Setting the paper feeding flow Press Setup Machine Setup from the home screen. Press the Next ( ) button. Press the up/down arrows to select Tray Behavior. Press the up/down arrows to select Configure MPF. Press the left/right arrows to select the paper tray you are using. •...
Tray Behavior Tray Linking Tray linking enables the automatic linking feature for trays when you load the same size and type of print media in multiple sources. The printer automatically links the trays; when one tray is not available for paper empty or mismatch, the printer will use the next available linked tray to feed print media for the printing.
MPF can be configured to behave in Tray Mode or in Bypass Mode by setting the Configure MPF menu in the operator panel. Bypass Mode In this mode the printer pulls the paper from MPF first unless it is closed or empty. MPF gets the highest priority and pulls whatever media is present in the MPF.
