Adjust the rear media-length guide by squeezing the guide adjustment latch and sliding the back
of the tray to the length of the media being used.
Slide the media-width guides open to the size for the media you are using.
Load media into the tray face up.
For best performance, load the tray completely full without splitting or fanning the
ream of paper. Splitting or fanning the ream might cause a multi-feed problem, which could
result in a paper jam. The capacity of the paper tray can vary. For example, if you are using
(20 lb) paper, the tray holds a full ream of 500 sheets. If the media is heavier than
(20 lb), the tray will not hold a full ream, and you must reduce the number of sheets
accordingly. Do not overfill the tray because the printer might not pick up the paper.
If the tray is not properly adjusted, the printer might display an error message or
the media might jam.
If you are duplex printing, see
for loading instructions.
