Load the lower paper tray

  1. Align the edges of the paper.

    • Curled paper edges may cause paper jams.

    • If paper is curled, it may cause surface cracks. Hold the curled corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction until the paper becomes completely flat.

    • Do not try to flatten Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss SG-201. Instead load one sheet at a time as it is. If you roll up this paper to flatten, this may cause surface cracks on the paper and reduce the print quality.
