Paper that damages the printer
- Carbon paper
- Paper with staples, clips, ribbons or tapes
- Paper that has already been printed by a copy machine or another laser printer (The
reverse side of the paper is also unusable. Using the multi-purpose tray, however, you
can perform 2-sided printing manually on the other side of previously printed paper. You
cannot print on the printed side again.)
Paper that is difﬁcult for the toner to ﬁx onto
- Paper with rough surfaces
- Specially coated paper (coated paper for ink jet printers, etc.)
- Paper containing thick ﬁbers
The quality of paper may deteriorate if it is stored improperly even when the paper
meets the normal speciﬁcations. Inferior paper may cause misfeeds, paper jams, or
deterioration in print quality.
Observe the following guidelines when storing and handling paper:
Store paper away from moisture.
Paper wrappers help avoiding moisture and dryness. Keep paper in the wrapper until it is
ready to be used. Store all unused paper in a wrapper.
Store paper on a ﬂat surface.
Do not store paper on the ﬂoor where water and moisture can accumulate.
When you store paper, prevent it from curling or being folded.
Do not store paper vertically or store too many stacks of paper in one pile.
Do not store paper in places exposed to direct sunlight or places with low humidity.
If the paper storage room and work area differ from each other signiﬁcantly in
temperature or humidity, keep packed paper stack in the work area for at least one day
prior to printing so that it can adapt to the new environment. When paper is moved to a
location where the temperature or humidity differs signiﬁcantly, the paper may curl or
