Step 8: Configuring Input Trays

Configure the mode for tray 1 (either First mode or Cassette mode), the type of media (such as plain paper, letterhead, and transparencies) for each of the input trays, and the size of the media (such as letter, A4, and legal) to use tray 1 in Cassette mode. When input trays are configured correctly, the printer will print based on media type and size and will automatically use the correct input tray.

For example, tray 2 could contain letterhead; tray 3, plain legal-sized paper; and tray 4, plain letter-sized paper. If the trays are configured correctly, when you set up a print job you can choose the media type and size in the printer driver, and the printer will automatically print from the correct input tray.

Selecting the Mode for Tray 1

Tray 1 has two modes: First mode and Cassette mode. First mode is the default mode for tray 1. In First mode, tray 1 functions as a multipurpose tray. When tray 1 is in First mode, the printer will look first for media loaded in tray 1. If media is loaded in tray 1, the printer will print from tray 1.

In Cassette mode, tray 1 functions as a regular input tray. When tray 1 is in Cassette mode, load media in tray 1 and configure the media type and size in the printer control panel.

When tray 1 is in First mode, specify the media type and size in the printer driver. If the printer senses that the media in tray 1 is a different size from the media specified in the printer driver, then the printer will not feed the media (to prevent damage to the printer).
