  • Fan the paper stack well, and tap it on a flat surface to align the edges.

When Legal size paper is loaded
  • The front side of the paper drawer is not flush with the machine when the extended paper drawer is inserted. Place the legal dust cover over the open part of the paper drawer.
When changing the paper size or type
