General loading guidelines


Step 

Action

 1

Make sure:

  • You are using paper designed for inkjet printers.
  • If you are using photo, glossy, or heavyweight matte paper, load it with the glossy or printable side facing you. (If you are not sure which side is the printable side, see the instructions that came with the paper.)
  • The paper is not used or damaged.
  • If you are using specialty paper, follow the instructions that came with it.
  • You do not force paper into the printer.
 2
Before loading paper the first time, slide the paper guides out toward the edges of the paper support.
 3
Load the paper vertically in the center of the paper support, and adjust the paper guides to rest against the edges of the paper.

NOTE: To avoid paper jams, make sure the paper does not buckle when you adjust the paper guides.
 


Loading various paper types 


Paper Type

Action

 Plain Paper

You can load up to 100 sheets (depending on the thickness). Make sure:

  • The paper is designed for use with inkjet printers.
  • The paper is loaded in the center of the paper support.
  • The paper guides rest against the edges of the paper.

  • The paper is loaded in the center of the paper support.
  • The paper guides rest against the edges of the paper.

NOTE:

  • Photos require more drying time. Remove each photo as it exits, and then allow it to dry to avoid ink smudging.

You can load up to 10 envelopes.

Make sure:

  • The print side of the envelopes is facing you.
  • The stamp location is in the upper left corner.
  • The envelopes are designed for use with inkjet printers.

  • The paper guides rest against the edges of the envelopes.

 WARNING—Potential Damage:  Do not use envelopes that have metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
NOTES:

  • Do not load envelopes with holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing.
  • Do not use envelopes that have exposed flap adhesive.
  • Envelopes require more drying time. Remove each envelope as it exits, and then allow it to dry to avoid ink smudging.

  • The paper guides rest against the edges of the label sheets.

NOTE:

  • Labels require more drying time. Remove each sheet of labels as it exits, and then allow it to dry to avoid ink smudging.
