3Carefully push the paper tray fully in.


  • When loading a low number of sheets, be sure not to squeeze the side fences in too tightly. If the paper bows, it might not feed in properly.

  • If a paper tray is pushed vigorously when putting it back into place, the position of the tray's side fences may slip out of place.

  • Various sizes of paper can be loaded in the paper trays by adjusting the positions of side fences and end fence. For details, see “Changing the Paper Size”.

  • Each tray can hold up to 500 sheets.
