Step1
Installing the Printer
and Removing the
Packing Materials on the
Outside of the Printer
• The life of the supplied toner cartridge is approximately 6,000 pages on
the basis of "ISO/IEC 19752"* when printing A4 size paper with the default
print density setting.
* "ISO/IEC 19752" is the global standard related to "Method for the determination of
toner cartridge yield for monochromatic electrophotographic printers and multifunction devices that may contain printer components" issued by ISO (International
Organization for Standardization).
• The toner cartridge supplied with the printer is different from the
replacement toner cartridge. For purchasing the replacement toner
cartridge, see "Chapter 5 Routine Maintenance" in
CD-ROM
User's Guide.
• When you connect this printer to your computer with a USB cable, use the

Cassette and Loading
Paper
Loading Paper in the Paper Cassette
The paper cassette (Cassette 1) can be loaded with up to approximately 250
sheets of plain paper (60 - 90 g/m2) at sizes of A3, B4, A4, B5, A5, Ledger
(11 x 17), Legal, Letter, Executive, and 16K.
You can also load paper of the following custom paper sizes. When loading
paper at sizes of A3, B4, etc. in portrait orientation, adjust the length of the
paper cassette.
- When loading paper in portrait orientation: Width 210.0 to 297.0 mm;
Length 210.0 to 431.8 mm*
For details on handling the multi-purpose tray or paper cassette, see
"Chapter 2 Loading and Outputting Paper" in
User's Guide.
By default, this printer feeds paper from two paper sources: the paper
cassette (Cassette 1) and multi-purpose tray. Also, paper can be fed from
up to 3 paper sources by installing the optional paper feeder (Cassette 2).
This section only describes the procedure for loading plain paper of
standard size in the paper cassette and multi-purpose tray. When loading
paper other than plain paper, or when installing the optional paper feeder
on the printer, see the following directions.
*
If the paper width is 279.5 to 297.0 mm, the paper length should be 210.0 to

CAUTION
When loading paper, take care not to cut your hands with the edges
of the paper.
17
IMPORTANT
• Be sure to check if the paper guide is at the position of the size of the
loaded paper. If the paper guide is set at a wrong position, this may result
in misfeeds.
• 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 on a hard, flat surface.

● Paper Level Indicator
The paper cassette has a paper level indicator (A) that shows the
amount of paper remaining in the cassette. If the cassette is full, the
paper level indicator is at the top. Because the indicator moves down
as the amount of paper drops, this gives a rough estimate of the
amount of paper remaining.

width.
• If the rear edge of the paper stack is not properly aligned, this may result in
misfeeds or paper jams.
• If the paper is curled or folded at corners, flatten it before loading it in the
printer.
• 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 on a hard, flat surface.

Selecting an Output Tray
This printer has two output trays: "output tray" on the top of the printer unit and
"sub-output tray" on the rear of the printer unit.
Do not switch one output tray to another during printing. This may result in
paper jams.

envelopes that curl easily, since the printed paper is output flattened.
Step

IMPORTANT
• Printed paper can be output only to the output tray when performing
automatic 2-sided printing.
• During 2-sided printing, do not touch the paper until it is output to the
output tray completely. In 2-sided printing, the paper is partially output
once after printed on its surface and is fed again to be printed on its
reverse side.
• The output tray and its surroundings become hot during or immediately
after using the printer. When taking out of the paper or removing jammed
paper, do not touch the surroundings of the output tray.
