Loading Paper into the Front Feeder

When printing on heavy or thick paper, load paper into the front feeder using the instructions below:

The following paper can be used in the Front Tray:

Paper Size

Standard paper: From 4" x 6" / 101.6 x 152.4 mm to 14" x 17" / 355.6 x 431.8 mm

Non-standard (custom size) paper: From 100.0 x 148.0 mm / 3.94 x 5.83 inches to 355.6 x 584.2 mm / 14 x 23 inches


From 0.1 mm / 4 mil to 1.2 mm / 47 mil

Do not use paper thicker than this, as it could jam in the printer.

  1. Keep a space of 15.7 inches behind the printer. When printing from the front tray, the paper temporarily sticks out from the back of the printer.

  2. Ensure that the front tray is opened and set it in the front paper feeding position. When the front tray is set in the front paper feeding position, the Front Feed button is lit. Lift the front tray vertically.

    Note: If the Front Feed button is not lit, the front tray is not set in the front paper feeding position. Set it again.

  3. Pull out the front tray extension < 1 > completely, press the Rear Support button < 2 >, and then press the Front Feed button < 3 >.

    Note: If the Alarm lamp of the printer is flashing for three times at a time, after opening the rear support, press the Resume/Cancel button to release the error.
  4. When loading the paper that is longer than Letter size paper, press the right corner of the rear support to open the rear support extension.

  5. Ensure that the Power lamp is flashing, and the Front Feed button is flashing quickly twice at a time.

    Note: If you leave the printer for more than 5 minutes while the Front Feed button flashes quickly, the Front Feed button stops flashing and stays lit. If this happens, press the Front Feed button again and confirm that it starts flashing.

  6. Load the paper with the print side facing up, aligning its right edge to the right edge of the front tray.

    Note: Align the front edge of the paper with the arrow-marked line on the front tray.

  7. Press the Front Feed button. After the printer takes in the paper, the Front Feed button flashes slowly.

  8. The printer is now ready to print from the front feeder.
