Specifying Paper Size and Type

Solution

If paper other than standard paper is loaded, you must specify the paper size and type settings to match the paper that is loaded. Make sure that the loaded paper size is correctly recognized when you load the paper that is different from the previously loaded paper.
IMPORTANT
If the setting does not match the size and type of loaded paper, a paper jam or printing error may occur.

Specifying Paper Type in the Paper Drawer

Use the following steps when loading paper other than plain paper such as heavy paper or envelopes in the drawer.

When selecting the paper size for the multi-purpose tray
When paper is loaded in the multi-purpose tray, the screen for selecting the paper size for the multi-purpose tray is displayed. The registered paper sizes are displayed on this screen.
The registered paper sizes are displayed when you set the default paper settings for the multi-purpose tray. From the screen, you can select one of the displayed sizes as the default paper size for the multi-purpose tray.

Registering Default Paper Settings for the Multi-Purpose Tray

You can register default paper settings for the multi-purpose tray. Registering default settings can save yourself the effort of having to specify the settings each time you load the same paper into the multi-purpose tray.
NOTE

If you load a different paper size or type without changing the paper settings, the machine may not print properly. To avoid this problem, disable the default setting by selecting <Off> in step 3, and then load the paper.
