  4. Flex the sheets back and forth and fan them, and then align the edges of the stack on a level surface.

    NOTE: This procedure separates any sheets that are stuck together and reduces the possibility of jams.

  5. Load the paper in the tray.
    • Load hole-punched paper with the holes to the left.

    • For 1-sided printing, load letterhead or pre-printed paper face-down with the top edge going into the printer.

    • For 2-sided printing, load letterhead or pre-printed paper face-down with the top edge going into the printer.

      NOTE: Do not load paper above the maximum fill line. Overfilling the tray can cause the printer to jam.  If necessary, update the paper type via the User Interface for Letterhead. See steps below.
