Loading Paper


You can load A4, Letter, or B5-sized plain paper (such as Canon Super White Paper SW-201) in the Front Tray. You cannot load any other paper in the Front Tray. All other paper must be loaded in the rear tray

1. Flatten the four corners of the paper before loading it.


Align the edges of paper neatly before loading. Loading paper without aligning the edges may cause paper jams.

If paper is curled, hold the opposing curled corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction until the paper becomes completely flat.

To avoid curling, handle paper as follows.

- Put unused paper back into the package and keep them on a level surface.

- Take out only the necessary number of sheets from the package, just before printing.

2. Prepare to load paper.

(1) Open the Paper Output Tray.

(2) Extend the Output Tray Extension.

(3) Press the Feed Switch so that the Front Tray lamp (A) lights..

3. Load the paper with the print side facing DOWN.

* Do not load higher than the Load Limit Mark (A).

(1) Load the paper in the Front Tray with the print side facing DOWN and the leading edge to the far side

(2) Align the paper stack against the right edge of the Front Tray.

(3) Align the near and the left edges of the paper with the Paper Size Mark.

(4) Slide the Paper Guide against the left side of the loaded paper stack.


When loading paper in the Front Tray, refer to the illustration below and make sure not to load paper with the wrong side up.

When using the machine connected to a computer, select the size and type of the loaded paper in Page Size (or Paper Size) and Media Type in the printer driver.
