1Paper type, and certain environmental conditions (very high or low temperature or humidity) affect how much paper you can load. If conditions are extreme, load half the amount of recommended paper.

2Available only when printing from your computer.

3To avoid blurs and discoloration, we recommend that you remove each printed sheet from the paper output tray before printing the next.

4When loading paper in stacks, the print side may become marked or the paper may not feed properly. If this happens, load one sheet at a time.
