Affected Products:

Single Function: B2236dw

Multifunction: MB2236adw, MB2236adwe


Issue Description:

Printing Cardstock with the printer settings, "Paper source/tray", set to “Automatically Select” prompts the printer or prints on Plain Paper from tray 1.



Note: The Manual Feeder is the only source where cardstock is supported.

To enable the printer to print cardstock from the manual feeder (MF):

  1. Select “Manual Paper” for the “Paper source/tray” setting in the driver.

    When changing the paper settings in the driver to “Card Stock”, make sure to also change the “Paper source/tray” setting.
  2. Should the issue persist, try setting the manual feeder paper size/type to the same size that is needed for cardstock prior to sending the print job via the driver.
