Loading Paper in the Bypass Tray


  • Set the size and direction of the loaded paper using the printer driver. Make sure the settings do not conflict. Otherwise, the paper may jam or the print quality may be affected.

  • Load paper with the print side down and in the short-edge feed direction.

  • Duplex printing is not possible.

  • You cannot use the bypass tray to feed in paper that requires a specified printing position (such as preprinted paper). Use Tray 1 for such paper.

  • If paper is curled, straighten it before loading, by bending it the paper in the opposite direction to the curl, for example.

  • Do not load paper while the printer is printing.

  • Tray 1 and 2 are unavailable while paper is being loaded in the Bypass Tray.

  • You cannot load paper when the printer is in Energy Saver mode. To disable Energy Saver mode, click the [Stop/Start] key on the control panel.
