Important points when inserting paper in the bypass tray
• Up to 50 sheets of standard paper can be set in the bypass tray.
• Be sure to place 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" or A6, B6 size paper or envelopes horizontally as shown in the following diagram.
• To feed an envelope, first press down the fusing unit release levers (2 places) to release the pressure. (p.17)
• When loading envelopes, make sure that they are straight and flat and do not have loosely glued construction flaps
(not the closure flap).
• Special papers except SHARP recommended transparency film, labels, and envelopes must be fed one sheet at a
time through the bypass tray.
• When adding paper, first remove any paper remaining in the tray, combine it with the paper to be added and then
reload as a single stack. The paper to be added must be the same size and type as the paper already in the tray.
• Use SHARP-recommended transparency film.
• Do not use paper that is smaller than the original. This may cause smudges or unclean images.
• Do not use paper that has already been printed on by a laser printer or plain paper fax machine. This may cause
smudges or unclean images.
