The system administrator can set Trays 1–4 to Fully Adjustable mode or Dedicated mode. Each time a tray is opened and closed, the paper settings appear on the control panel.

  • When trays are configured as Fully Adjustable, you can confirm or change the media settings. The tray guides automatically detect the size of paper that is loaded.
  • When trays are configured as Dedicated, the control panel displays the media settings for the tray. A warning message appears on the control panel when the wrong media is loaded, or when the tray guides are set incorrectly.

Note: Only the system administrator can change the media settings for a Dedicated tray.

When the paper in the tray is in short supply, or when a tray is empty, a warning message appears on the control panel.

To load paper in Trays 1–4:

  1. Pull out the tray until it stops.

  4. Flex the sheets back and forth and fan them, then align the edges of the stack on a level surface. This procedure separates any sheets that are stuck together and reduces the possibility of jams.

    Note: To avoid jams and misfeeds, do not remove paper from its packaging until you are ready to use it.

  5. Load paper in the tray. Do one of the following:
    • For long-edge feed:
      • Insert letterhead and pre-printed paper face down and top edge facing front.
      • Load hole-punched paper with the holes to the left.

    • For short-edge feed:
      • Insert letterhead and pre-printed paper face down and top edge facing left.
      • Load hole punched paper with the holes toward the front of the printer.

        Note: Do not load paper above the maximum fill line. Overfilling the tray can cause paper jams.
