Printer Documentation

Product CD This CD contains the following pieces of information:

The User Guide

The System AdministratorGuide

The System Administrator Guidealso contains a considerable amount of more detailed user information.

The documents on the CD are provided as PDF files with hyperlink capabilities that allow you to easily jump to and access different areas of the document. In addition, after you access the page or pages of information that you are seeking, you can print the page(s) that you need rather than print the entire chapter or the manual. If you do not have a PDF reader on your system, you can also install one from this CD.

Printer drivers are also contained on this CD. The majority of driver documentation is provided via the HELP files included with the drivers.

Selecting Print Media

Selecting Print Media

This chapter will help you understand what kinds of paper you can use with the printer and also how to properly position paper in the different paper input sources.

Table 2.1 on page 2-4lists the size paper, envelopes, and other print media you can use with all input trays.

Table 2.2 on page 2-6lists the capacities of the printer’s output bins.

The printer supports paper weights as follows:

17-75lbs.(64-200g/m2) via paper trays

17-44lbs.(64-165g/m2) via the 50 Sheet Bypass Feeder

17-28lbs.(64-105g/m2) with duplex

The optional 2,500 Sheet Feeder supports 17-28lbs.(64-105g/m2)

Using sizes other than those listed in Table 2.1, or media not recommended for laser printers, may result in jams and print quality problems.

2-2User Guide

Storing Paper

Storing Paper

Print quality is optimized when paper and other print media are stored properly. Proper storage ensures optimum print quality and trouble-freeprinter options.

Store the paper on a flat surface, in a relatively low humidity environment.

Avoid storing paper in such a way as to cause wrinkling, bending, curling, etcetera.

Do not unwrap paper until you are ready to use it, and rewrap any paper you are not using.

Do not expose paper to direct sunlight or high humidity.

Chapter 2: Loading Print Media 2-7

Loading Paper

Loading Paper

The printer accepts paper from the following input trays:

Trays 1 (500 sheets) and 2 (500 sheets) in the printer (see page 2-9)

Tray 3 (500 sheets), the top tray in the optional 2,500 Sheet Feeder (see page 2-9)

Trays 4 (1,000 sheets), the lower left tray, and 5 (1,000 sheets), the lower right tray, in the optional 2,500 Sheet Feeder (see page 2-14)

The 50 Sheet Bypass Feeder in the printer (see page 2-17)

The optional 100 Envelope Feeder (see page 2-23)

Do not attempt to load paper during printing into a tray that is currently in use.

Do not overfill the trays.

Use only the media specified in Table 2.1 on page 2-4and avoid using the media listed onpage 2-2.

The multiple trays of the printer enable you to dedicate specific trays to specific sizes and types of paper. For example, if you have applications that require printing on letterhead, you can dedicate one of the printer’s trays to that paper stock.
