Loading Paper in the Multi-Purpose Tray

Solution

Loading Paper in the Multi-Purpose Tray

Use the multi-purpose tray when you want to copy or print on a paper that is different from what is in the paper cassette.
You can load a single sheet of paper in the multi-purpose tray.


For MF4890dw/MF4880dw/MF4770n

1. Spread the paper guides a little wider than the paper.

2. Gently insert the paper into the multi-purpose tray with the print side face up.
Ensure that the paper stack does not exceed the load limit guides (A).


When loading envelopes
(1) Fold the envelope flap.

(2) Loosen any stiff corners of the envelope and flatten curls as shown in the figure.

(3) Gently insert the envelope into the multi-purpose tray with the print side face up.

3. Adjust the paper guides tightly to the width of the paper.

IMPORTANT
Adjust the paper guides to the paper width without space.
  • If the paper guides are too loose or too tight, this may result in misfeeds or paper jams.

4. Push the output tray extension, and then pull it out.

5. Lift the paper stopper.

6. Specify the loaded paper size and type.

Paper loading orientation when loading in the multi-purpose tray:
  • The paper loading orientation for the multi-purpose tray is the same as that for the paper cassette.

Precautions When Loading Paper in the Multi-Purpose Tray

CAUTION
Be careful when handling paper.
  • Handle paper carefully to avoid cutting your hands with the edges of the paper.
Precautions when closing the dust cover:
  • Keep your fingers clear of the dust cover to avoid injury.

IMPORTANT
Adjust the paper guides tightly to the width of the paper.
  • If the paper guides are too loose or too tight, the document may be misfed or become jammed.
When using paper that has been poorly cut:
  • If you use paper that has been poorly cut, multiple sheets of paper may be fed at once. In this case, fan the paper thoroughly, and then align the edges of the stack properly on a hard, flat surface.
Do not exceed the loading limit marks when loading paper.
  • Make sure that the paper stack does not exceed the loading limit marks. If the paper stack exceeds the loading limit marks, this may result in misfeeds.
When printing on envelopes:
  • Load envelopes with the front side (non-glued side) facing up. You cannot print on the reverse side of envelopes. Also, be sure to close the flap before loading envelopes.
