The printer can have up to six paper trays, depending on the paper tray configuration.

  • For all configurations, Trays 1 and 2 are adjustable paper trays used to load a range of paper sizes.
  • For the configuration with the 2-Tray Module (2TM), Trays 3 and 4 are adjustable trays similar to Trays 1 and 2.
  • The Tandem Tray Module (TTM) is mostly used for standard pre-set sizes of media.
  • The Bypass Tray is used to load small amounts of special paper.
  • The optional Envelope Tray can replace Tray 1.
  • Tray 6 is an optional High-Capacity Tray (HCF).

The printer can use various media types, such as plain, recycled, colored paper, letterhead, pre-printed, cardstock, labels, and envelopes. Ensure that you use the correct media for the tray that you load.

Labels are affixed inside each tray to show how to load certain types of media in the correct orientation. The MAX label shows the maximum fill line for the tray.
