Loading paper in a tray
To change the paper in a tray, load the desired paper in the tray and then
change the tray settings in the machine to specify the loaded paper. The
procedure for changing the tray paper size is explained below. As an
example, the paper in tray 1 is changed from 8-1/2" x 11" (A4) size plain
paper to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (A5) size recycled paper.
Gently pull out the paper tray. If
paper remains in the tray, remove it.
Move the two guides on the tray. For
example, move the guides from
8-1/2" x 11" (A4) to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (A5).
Adjust the guides to match the paper
being loaded. If the guides are too
loose, the paper will not be held in
place. If the guides are too tight, the
paper will bow.
Load the paper so that it is not as
shown below when viewed from the
front and side of the machine.
The loaded paper should not go
higher than these protrusions.
Insert the paper with the print side
face up.
Fan the paper well before inserting
it. Otherwise, multiple sheets may
feed at once and cause a misfeed.
Insert the paper and then gently
push the tray into the machine.
Indicator line
The indicator line indicates the
maximum height of the paper
that can be loaded in the tray.
When loading paper, make sure
that the stack is not higher than
the indicator line.

Loading paper in bypass tray
The side to be
printed on must
be face down!
Load the paper in the horizontal orientation.
When loading 8-1/2" x 11" size paper, pull out
the tray extension.
The maximum number of sheets that can be
loaded in the bypass tray is approximately
100 for plain paper and approximately 20 for
envelopes.
Example: Loading an envelope
Place paper that is 7-1/4" x 10-1/2"
(A5) or smaller in the horizontal
orientation.
Only the address side of envelopes
can be printed on. Place envelopes
with the address side face down.
Do not place heavy objects on the bypass tray or press down on the tray. The
bypass tray may be damaged, the machine may topple, and injury may result.
Special types of paper that cannot be loaded in other trays can be loaded
in the bypass tray.
For detailed information on the bypass tray, see "LOADING PAPER IN THE
BYPASS TRAY" in "Chapter 1- BEFORE USING THE MACHINE" in the
Operation Guide.
