Once the unpacking of the printer is complete, connect the power cord with the printer and then turn it on. After that, pull out the paper cassette and then slide the edge guides outward. If you are using legal-size paper or larger, press the button and extend the paper cassette. Once done, put a stack of paper in the printer and make sure about a few things:
- The paper is below the maximum paper mark because overfilling the paper tray will cause a paper feeding problem.
- The side to be printed on must be face down.
- The paper guides should touch the sides of the paper so it will feed properly.
Now, slide the edge guides against the paper but not too tightly, and after that, gently insert the paper cassette. Next, go to the LCD screen of the printer to verify the size and type of the paper you just loaded. Once it’s done press the Ok button to complete the process.
For users’ convenience, we have provided a complete list of max loading capacity of a particular paper type:
