Media and tray This chapter provides information on how to load print media into your machine. This chapter includes: Selecting print media Changing the tray size Loading paper in the tray Printing on special media Using the output support Selecting print media You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes, labels, and transparencies.
The tray is preset to Letter or A4 size, depending on your country. To change the size, you need to adjust the paper guides. Support guide Paper length guide Guide lock Paper width guide With one hand press and hold the guide lock, and with the other hand, hold the paper length guide and support guide together.
Do not push the paper width guide too far causing the media to warp. If you do not adjust the paper width guide, it may cause paper jams. Do not use a paper with more than 6 mm curl. Loading paper in the tray Tray 1 Pull out the paper tray .
Tips on using the manual tray If you select Manual Feeder for Source from your software application, you need to press (cancel button) each time you print a page and load only one type, size and weight of print media at a time in the manual tray. To prevent paper jams, do not add paper while printing.
CardStock ● Labels ● Transparency ● Envelope ● Preprinted ● Cotton ● Recycled ● ● Archive ● ● ( ●: supported, Blank: Not supported) The media types are shown in the Printing Preferences. This paper type option allows you to set the type of paper to be loaded in the tray.
When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors: Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed 90 g/m otherwise, jam may occur. Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not contain air. Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, nor damaged.
To avoid fading, do not expose printed transparencies to prolonged sunlight. Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have any torn edges. Do not use transparencies that separates from the backing sheet. To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the printed sheets stack up as they are begin printed out.
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subjected to the machine’s fusing temperature about 170°C (338 °F) for 0.1 second. Letterhead/ Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect machine rollers. Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
