Solution

Paper Settings

By registering the paper size and the media type loaded on the rear tray or in the cassette, you can prevent the printer from misprinting by displaying the message before printing starts when the paper size or the media type of the loaded paper differs from the print settings.

 The default display setting is different between when you print or copy from the operation panel of the printer, when you print from Smartphone / tablet, when you print from Windows, and when you print from macOS.
 

After loading paper:

  • When you loading paper in the rear tray:

    Paper loaded in the rear tray

    The screen to register the rear tray paper information is displayed.

    Figure: Touch screen

    If the page size on the touch screen matches the size of the paper loaded in the rear tray, select Yes.

    If not, select Change to change the setting in accordance with the size of the loaded paper.

  • When you insert the cassette:

    Cassette inserted

    The screen to register the cassette paper information is displayed.

    Figure: Touch screen

    If the page size on the touch screen matches the size of the paper loaded in the cassette, select Yes.

    If not, select Change to change the setting in accordance with the size of the loaded paper.

    * You can load only plain paper in the cassette.

When the paper settings for printing/copying are different from the paper information registered to the printer:

Ex:

  • Paper settings for printing/copying: A5

  • Paper information registered to the printer: A4

Paper setting mismatch between printer and PC

When you start printing/copying, a message is displayed and the paper setting specified for printing/copying is shown under the message.

Figure: Touch screen

Check the message and select Next. When the screen to select the operation is displayed, select one of the operations below.

 Depending on the setting, the choices below may not be displayed.

Print with the loaded paper.

Select if you want to print/copy on the paper loaded without changing the paper settings.

For example, when the paper setting for printing/copying is A5 and the paper information registered to the printer is A4, the printer starts printing/copying on the paper loaded in the rear tray or in the cassette without changing the paper size setting for printing/copying.

Replace the paper and print

Select if you want to print after replacing the paper of the rear tray or the cassette.

For example, when the paper size setting for printing/copying is A5 and the paper information registered to the printer is A4, you load A5 sized paper in the rear tray or in the cassette before you start printing/copying.

The paper information registration screen is displayed after replacing the paper. Register the paper information according to the paper that you loaded.

 If you do not know what paper information to register to the printer, press the Back button when the screen to select the operation is displayed.
