How should I load envelopes?

    See below.

    Loading Paper in the Rear Feed

    You can load plain paper in the rear feed up to the line indicated by the triangle mark inside the edge guides. For loading other paper types, see the link below.

    Note: Before loading paper, make sure your product is not currently printing, faxing, scanning, or copying.

    1. Pull out the rear paper feed support.

    2. Slide the edge guides outward.

    3. Do one of the following:
      • Load paper at the center of the rear feed with the glossy or printable side facing up.

      • Insert up to 10 envelopes short edge first with the printable side facing up.

      • Load one sheet of loose-leaf or other paper with holes as shown.

        Note: Do not select automatic 2-sided printing for this type of paper and do not print over the holes. Select Letterhead as the paper type setting.

      Note: To load a sheet of paper longer than legal-size, store the rear feed paper support and insert the paper into the rear feed as shown.

    4. Slide the edge guides against the paper, but not too tightly.

      Note: Make sure the paper fits under the line indicated by the triangle mark inside the edge guides.

    5. Confirm the paper type and size you loaded on the LCD screen and press the OK button if correct.

      Note: Select Change to change the paper settings.

    6. Slide out the output tray and open the paper stopper.

      Always follow these paper loading guidelines:
      • Load only the recommended number of sheets.
      • Load paper short edge first and printable side facing up.
      • Make sure the paper is under the line indicated by the triangle mark inside the edge guides.
      • If you have trouble loading a stack of envelopes, press each envelope flat before loading it or load one envelope at a time.
      • If print quality declines when printing multiple envelopes, try loading one envelope at a time.
      • Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions.
