This chapter describes how to load paper into the paper tray and recommended paper sizes and types.
Loading Paper
Precautions for Loading Paper
• When loading paper, take care not to trap or injure your fingers.
• Do not stack paper over the limit mark.
Jams and misfeeds can occur when printing on thick glossy sheets. To prevent such problems, be sure to
fan glossy sheets thoroughly before loading them.
When loading paper, set the paper direction according to its grain, as shown in the following diagram:
Direction of paper grain
Trays 1-2 or the wide LCT
Multi bypass tray (Tray A)
• Even if paper is loaded as described above, normal operations and print quality might still not be
possible, depending on the paper type.
• Prints might be noticeably curled. Flatten out prints if they are creased or curled. For details about
settings for flattening out curled paper, see "Adjustment Settings for Operators", Paper Settings.
• To prevent multiple sheets from being fed at once, fan the paper before loading it.
• If you load paper when only a few sheets of paper remain in the tray, multiple sheet feeding may
occur. Remove any remaining paper, stack them with the new sheets of paper, and then fan the
entire stack before loading it into the tray.

4. Adding Paper and Toner
• Straighten curled or warped paper before loading.
• When paper in trays that are set to automatically eject unnecessary tab stock sheets runs out,
reload the tab stock from the beginning of the cycle (the first sheet).
• When you load paper into the paper tray for the first time or when you change the size or type of
paper in the paper tray, be sure to specify the appropriate paper settings in Tray Paper Settings.
For details, see "Changing Tray Paper Settings", Paper Settings.
• For details about the paper sizes and types that can be used, see page 44 "Recommended
Paper Sizes and Types".
• You might at times hear a rustling noise from paper moving through the machine. This noise does
not indicate a malfunction.

3. Carefully push the paper tray fully in.
• Various sizes of paper can be loaded in Trays 1, 2, and the wide LCT by adjusting the positions of
side fence and end fence. For details, see "Changing the Paper Size in Trays 1, 2, and the Wide
Large Capacity Tray", Paper Specifications and Adding Paper.
• You can load envelopes in Trays 1, 2, and the wide LCT. When loading envelopes, place them in
the correct orientation. For details, see page 55 "Envelopes".
• When using auto tray switching, covers, or slip sheets, the lamp on the front of the tray being used
will stay lit until printing is complete. While the lamp is lit, paper cannot be replenished.
Loading Paper into the Multi Bypass Tray (Tray A)
Use the multi bypass tray (Tray A) to use transparencies, translucent paper, and paper that cannot be
loaded in the paper trays.
• The maximum number of sheets you can load at the same time depends on paper type. Do not
stack paper over the limit mark. For the maximum number of sheets you can load, see page 44
"Recommended Paper Sizes and Types".
• Check the paper edges are aligned at the left side.
• When loading a low number of sheets, be sure not to squeeze the side fences in too tightly. If the
side fences are squeezed too tightly against the paper, the edges may crease, the paper may
misfeed, or if it weighs between 52.3–63.0 g/m2 (14.0–16.9 lb. Bond), it may wrinkle.
1. Set the side fences to the paper size, and then square the paper and load it print side up.

• Load paper with its printed side up (the front side). If you are using the booklet finisher, load sheets
print side down.
• Load paper in the interposer in the same orientation as paper in the paper tray.
• The staple position or punch hole position will be on the left side of the paper, when you are facing
the machine.
• When loading paper larger than A4 (81/2 × 11) , pull out the paper extender.
Loading Cover Sheets into the Interposer of the Perfect Binder
• The length/size of cover sheets depends on the thickness of the spine.
• Load paper in the
orientation.
• Do not place anything on top of or leave documents on the sensor. This may lead to the paper size
not being correctly detected or paper jams.
Estimating the thickness of the spine
This section explains how to calculate the approximate spine thickness and the cover sheet length
and size.
Note that the length and size of a cover sheet depends on the thickness of the book block spine.
The following list shows examples for A4 or 81/2 × 11 size, 80.0 g/m2 (20.0 lb. Bond) paper:
• 10-sheet book block: 1 mm (0.04 inches)
• 30-sheet book block: 3 mm (0.12 inches)
• 50-sheet book block: 5 mm (0.20 inches)
• 80-sheet book block: 8 mm (0.32 inches)
• 100-sheet book block: 10 mm (0.40 inches)
40
Loading Paper
• 200-sheet book block: 20 mm (0.80 inches)
Specify the cover sheet size based on the thickness of the book block spine. Use the following
equation to calculate the length of the cover sheet:
Minimum length of cover sheet (mm/inch) = "length of book block sheet (mm/inch)" × 2 +
"thickness of spine (mm/inch)"
To perfect bind a booklet with the following dimensions, specify a cover sheet length of at least
440 mm (17.4 inches):

• You cannot perfect bind a booklet if the thickness of the book block's spine exceeds 23 mm (0.9
inches).
• Depending on your machine, the procedure for selecting the orientation of covers and originals
might be slightly different. For details, refer to the procedure for your machine.
• When loading thick paper of 251.0 g/m2 (138.8 lb. Index) or heavier in the interposer trays of
the perfect binder, make sure the grain of the paper is perpendicular to the feed direction.
• If you are loading sheets that are likely to stick together (such as sheets of coated paper), be sure
to fan them thoroughly before loading. Fanning them will help prevent jams and allow them to be
fed in one sheet at a time.
• The perfect binding process may scratch glossy paper.
Loading Orientation-fixed Paper or Two-sided Paper
Use the settings and paper orientations shown below to ensure the printer prints onto orientation-fixed
paper (such as letterhead or continuous stationery) correctly. Place paper as shown below.

Recommended Paper Sizes and Types
This section describes recommended paper sizes and types.
• If you use paper that curls, either because it is too dry or too damp, a staple clogging or paper jam
may occur.
• Do not use paper designed for inkjet printers, as these may stick to the fusing unit and cause a
misfeed.
• When you load transparencies, check the front and back of the sheets, and place them correctly,
or a misfeed might occur.

*1 Print quality will decrease if the paper you are using is close to the minimum or maximum weight.
Change the paper weight setting to thinner or thicker.
*2 When loading paper of 52.3–63.0 g/m2 (14.0–16.9 lb. Bond), the edges may crease or the paper
misfeed depending on the paper type.
• Certain types of paper, such as translucent paper or transparencies, may produce noise when
delivered. This noise does not indicate a problem and print quality is unaffected.
• The paper capacity described in the tables above is an example. Actual paper capacity might be
lower, depending on the paper type.
• When loading paper, make sure the stack height does not exceed the limit mark of the paper tray.
• If multiple sheet feeding occurs, fan sheets thoroughly or load sheets one by one from the multi
bypass tray (Tray A).
53
4. Adding Paper and Toner
• You can specify whether or not the machine auto detects multi-sheet feeds in paper from every tray.
In the Adjustment Settings for Operators menu, you can also specify whether current jobs are
suspended or continued when a multi-sheet feed is detected. However, depending on the condition
of the paper, the machine may not detect a multi-sheet feed correctly. For details about Adjustment
Settings for Operators, see "Adjustment Settings for Operators", Paper Settings.
• Flatten out curled sheets before loading them.
• The Adjust Paper Curl function might not be able to fully remove curl, depending on the type of
paper and the direction of its grain. If long grain paper does not uncurl properly, try short grain
paper instead. For details about the Adjust Paper Curl function, see "Adjustment Settings for
Operators", Paper Settings.
• Depending on the paper's size, the print speed may be slower than usual.
• When loading envelopes, see page 55 "Envelopes".
• When printing onto letterhead paper, the paper placing orientation is different depending on
which function you are using. For details, see page 42 "Loading Orientation-fixed Paper or Twosided Paper".
• The paper types you can select in Tray Paper Settings are only general classifications. Print quality
for every kind of paper in a classification is not guaranteed. For details, see "Unusable Paper",
Paper Specifications and Adding Paper.
• If the surface of the paper is dusty, white spots might appear on prints. To remove dust, fan the
paper thoroughly.
• When loading label paper:
• Select [Label Paper] for [Paper Type] in [Tray Paper Settings], and select an appropriate
paper thickness under [Paper Weight].
• When loading transparencies:
• To print on transparencies, select [Transparency] for [Paper Type] in [Tray Paper Settings].
• When you load transparencies, check the front and back of the sheets, and place them
correctly, or a misfeed might occur.
• Fan transparencies thoroughly whenever you use them. This prevents transparencies from
sticking together, and from feeding incorrectly.
• Remove printed sheets one by one.
• When outputting to the high capacity stacker, specify the output tray as the stacker upper tray.
For details, see "General Features", Connecting the Machine/ System Settings.
• When loading translucent paper:
• When loading translucent paper, always use long grain paper, and set the paper direction
according to the grain.
• Translucent paper easily absorbs humidity and becomes curled. Remove curl in the translucent

• Place one envelope at a time if you still get any of the following results:
• The envelope jams
• The envelope is not fed
• Multiple envelopes are fed at the same time
• Humidity levels of over 50% can cause envelopes to come out creased or misprinted.
• Certain types of envelopes might come out creased, dirtied, or misprinted. If you are printing a
solid color or image on an envelope, lines may appear where the overlapped edges of the
envelope make it thicker.
• If the horizontal size of the envelope is 297 mm (11.7 inches) or less, a paper misfeed might occur.
If this happens, turn off Skew Detection. For details, see "Adjustment Settings for Operators", Paper
Settings.
• When printing on envelopes thicker than 127.0 g/m2 (47.0 lb. Cover), do not use [Adjust Curl:

Adding Toner
Adding Toner
This section explains precautions when adding toner and how to dispose of used toner.
• Do not incinerate toner (new or used) or toner containers. Doing so risks burns. Toner will ignite
on contact with naked flame.
• Do not store toner (new or used) or toner containers anywhere near naked flames. Doing so
risks fire and burns. Toner will ignite on contact with naked flame.
• The following explains the warning messages on the plastic bag used in this product's
packaging.
• Keep the polythene materials (bags, etc.) supplied with this machine away from babies
and small children at all times. Suffocation can result if polythene materials are brought into
contact with the mouth or nose.
• Do not use a vacuum cleaner to remove spilled toner (including used toner). Absorbed toner
may cause a fire or explosion due to electrical contact flickering inside the vacuum cleaner.
However, it is possible to use a vacuum cleaner that is explosion-proof and dust ignition-proof. If
toner is spilled on the floor, remove the spilled toner slowly using a wet cloth, so that the toner is
not scattered.
• Do not crush or squeeze toner containers. Doing so can cause toner spillage, possibly resulting
in dirtying of skin, clothing, and floor, and accidental ingestion.
• Store toner (new or used), toner containers, and components that have been in contact with
toner out of reach of children.
• If toner or used toner is inhaled, gargle with plenty of water and move into a fresh air
environment. Consult a doctor if necessary.
• If toner or used toner gets into your eyes, flush immediately with large amounts of water. Consult
a doctor if necessary.
• If toner or used toner is swallowed, dilute by drinking a large amount of water. Consult a doctor
if necessary.
65
4. Adding Paper and Toner
• When removing jammed paper or replacing toner, avoid getting toner (new or used) on your
clothing. If toner comes into contact with your clothing, wash the stained area with cold water.
Hot water will set the toner into the fabric and make removing the stain impossible.
• When removing jammed paper or replacing toner, avoid getting toner (new or used) on your
skin. If toner comes into contact with your skin, wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and
water.
• When replacing a toner or waste toner container or consumables with toner, make sure that the
toner does not splatter. Put the waste consumables in a bag after they are removed. For
consumables with a lid, make sure that the lid is shut.
• Always replace the toner cartridge when a notification appears on the machine.
• Fault may occur if you use toner other than the recommended type.
• When adding toner, do not turn off the main power. If you turn off the main power when replacing
toner, the settings will be lost and you cannot restart printing, or the machine may not be able to
detect that a toner cartridge is inserted.
• Store toner where it will not be exposed to direct sunlight, temperatures above 35°C (95°F), or
high humidity.
• Store toner horizontally.
• Do not repeatedly install and remove toner cartridges. This will result in toner leakage.
• Do not use recycled toner. This will damage the machine.
• During toner adding, the toner container is rotating. Do not touch the toner container.
• When a toner cartridge is being used, it cannot be removed. Do not remove the cartridge forcibly.
• Do not install an empty toner cartridge.
• Immediately close the toner cartridge cover after replacing the toner cartridge. The amount of
remaining toner will not be indicated correctly while the toner cartridge cover is open.
• The machine stops printing if you leave the toner cartridge cover open.
Follow the instruction on the screen regarding how to replace a toner cartridge.
• If "Toner Cartridge is empty." and "Replace the cartridge." appear alternately, the machine will
soon stop printing. Replace the toner to maintain print quality.
• You can check the name of the required toner and the replacement procedure using the [ Add
Toner] screen.
• You can change the toner containers during printing.
66
Adding Toner
• Press the [Check Status] key to check contact number where you can order supplies. See "Checking
Machine Status and Settings", Convenient Functions.
• You can add all four color toners in the same way.
• Do not remove the outer cap of the toner cartridge before shaking it. Wait until you install the toner
cartridge before removing the cap.
• Do not remove the inner cap.
• If you cannot get it to click in, pull out the toner cartridge a little, slightly rotate it to the left or right,
then try again.
Disposing of Used Toner
This section describes what to do with used toner.
Toner cannot be re-used.
Pack used toner containers in the container's box or a bag to prevent the toner from leaking out of the
container when you dispose of it.
(mainly Europe and Asia)
If you want to discard your used toner container, please contact your local sales office. If you discard it
by yourself, treat it as general plastic waste material.
(mainly North America)
Please see our local company website for information on the recycling of supply products, or you can
recycle items according to the requirements of your local municipalities or private recyclers.

Consumables yield
Please refer to either the User's Manual for this information or the packaging of the consumable.
Recycled paper
The machine can use recycled paper which is produced in accordance with European standard
EN 12281:2002 or DIN 19309. For products using EP printing technology, the machine can print
on 64 g/m2 paper, which contains less raw materials and represents a significant resource
reduction.
Duplex printing (if applicable)
Duplex printing enables both sides of a sheet of paper to be used. This saves paper and reduces
the size of printed documents so that fewer sheets are used. We recommend that this feature is
enabled whenever you print.
Toner and ink cartridge return program
Toner and ink cartridge for recycling will be accepted free of charge from users in accordance with
local regulations.
For details about the return program, please refer to the Web page below or consult your service
person.
https://www.ricoh-return.com/
Energy efficiency
The amount of electricity a machine consumes depends as much on its specifications as it does on
the way you use it. The machine is designed to allow you to reduce electricity costs by switching to
Ready mode after it prints the last page. If required, it can immediately print again from this mode.
If no additional prints are required and a specified period of time passes, the device switches to an
energy saving mode.
In these modes, the machine consumes less power (watts). If the machine is to print again, it needs
a little longer to return from an energy saving mode than from Ready mode.
For maximum energy savings, we recommend that the default setting for power management is
used.
Products that comply with the Energy Star requirement are always energy efficient.
