    If the Power lamp is flashing, wait until it stops flashing and stays lit.

    (2) Load the paper straight into the Front Tray WITH THE PRINT SIDE FACING UP.
    Align the front edge of the paper with the mark  (Paper Alignment Mark) on the Front Tray.

  • If paper is curled, hold the curled corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction until the paper becomes completely flat.
     
  • When using Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss, even if the sheet is curled, load one sheet at a time as it is. If you roll up this paper to flatten, this may cause cracks on the surface of the paper and reduce the print quality.



 Important
