FAQ: Loading Paper into the Paper Cassette

Helpful Information:

Solution:


Loading Paper into the Paper Cassette

1. Lift the dust cover.

2. Spread the paper guides a little wider than the paper size.

* If you want to change the size of the paper to be loaded, be sure to register the paper size in [ Setting a Paper Size and Type ].

3. Gently load the paper into the paper cassette with the print side face up, until the edge of the paper stack meets the back of the paper cassette.
Ensure that the paper stack does not exceed the load limit guides (A).

When loading envelopes
(1) Close the envelope flap.

(2) Place the stack of envelopes on a flat surface, flatten them to release any remaining air, and ensure that the edges are pressed tightly.

(3) Loosen any stiff corners of the envelopes and flatten curls as shown in the figure.

(4) Align the edges of the envelopes on a flat surface.

(5) Gently load the envelopes into the paper cassette with the print side face up, until the edge of the envelope stack meets the back of the paper cassette.

4. Adjust the paper guides to the width of the paper.

5. Adjust the paper guide to the length of the paper.

6. Close the dust cover.

(: Feeding direction)

  • Envelope No.10, DL, ISO-C5

Load the envelopes so that the flap is toward the left of the paper cassette when it is viewed from the front.

  • Envelope ISO-B5

Precautions When Loading Paper into the Paper Cassette


ATTENTION
Be careful when handling paper.
  • Handle paper carefully not to cut your hands with the edges of the paper.

Precautions when inserting the paper cassette
  • Be careful not to catch your fingers.


IMPORTANT
Be sure to align the paper guides with the width of the paper.
  • If the paper guides are too loose or too tight, this may result in misfeeds or paper jams.
  • Printouts may be askew depending on the printing environment. Properly load paper to reduce the symptom.

When using paper that has been poorly cut
  • If you use paper that has been poorly cut, multiple sheets of paper may be fed at once. In this case, fan the paper thoroughly, and then align the edges of the stack properly on a hard, flat surface.

Do not exceed the load limit mark when loading paper.
  • Ensure that the paper stack does not exceed the line of the load limit mark. If the paper stack exceeds the load limit mark lines, this may result in misfeeds.

When printing on envelopes
  • Load envelopes with the front side (non-glued side) facing up. You cannot print on the reverse side of envelopes. Also, be sure to close the flap before loading envelopes.
