100 Envelope Feeder

The 100 Envelope Feeder is an optional paper handling

 

 

device available for the printer. Refer to Table 2.1 on

 

 

page 2-4for acceptable envelope sizes.

 

 

1 Prepare a stack of envelopes, making sure all flaps are

 

 

 

 

closed and the envelopes are not stuck together.

 

 

 

2 Lift the envelope stopper and insert the stack with theflap-sideup and the long edges leading into the printer.

3 Slide the side guide so that it touches the edges of the envelope stack lightly.

To avoid paper jams, do not stack envelopes above the paper limit mark, and do not attempt to add envelopes while printing.

Automatic Tray Switching

Automatic Tray Switching

Automatic tray switching, available for both PCL and PostScript jobs, enables you to group two or more input trays together into one logical tray, and in a specific order in which the trays will be searched to satisfy an input request. Tray switching is useful for:

Increasing paper capacity.

When the current paper tray runs out of paper, the printer automatically switches to the next tray in the sequence, provided that the paper size and type in the next tray is the same size and type as that in the current tray.

Searching for the correct paper size and type.

If the paper size and type specified in your software application does not match the size paper loaded in the current paper tray, the printer automatically searches the next tray in the sequence for a paper size and type that matches.

Loading paper in one tray while printing from another tray (filling an empty tray while printing).

Tray switching is made possible via the Tray Sequence item in the Control Panel’s Tray Menu. It enables grouping of Trays 1 and 2 in the printer, the 50 Sheet Bypass Feeder, and Trays 3, 4, and 5 in the 2,500 Sheet Feeder (if installed) into a variety of sequence combinations. Tray switching can also be turned off.

The 50 Sheet Bypass Feeder is referred to as the MBF (for Multiple

Bypass Feeder) in the Control Panel’s Tray Sequence settings.

Paper Size/Type

Mismatch

Automatic Tray Switching

Paper size/type mismatch occurs when the requested size is not available in the printer. This can be caused by running out of paper in a tray that is configured for the requested paper, or by requesting a paper that is not configured in the printer. The printer goes off-lineunder paper mismatch conditions. It automatically returnson-lineand continues printing after the paper mismatch condition is resolved.

If a tray is configured for the requested paper, but the tray is out of paper, the display prompts you to load the requested paper (size and type) in the appropriate tray. After the tray is loaded, printing continues.

If the request is for paper that is not configured in the printer, you are prompted to load the requested paper in the first tray of the Multi Bypass Feeder setting.

If you do not want to load paper in the first tray of the setting, two options are available:

One of the trays may be loaded with the requested size paper and reconfigured via the Tray Menu to match the requested paper type.

Value Up orValue Down may be pressed to scroll through all the trays, displaying the size and type paper in each tray. If one of these alternate papers is acceptable, pressingEnter will cause printing to continue on the new paper. Trays are searched in the order specified in the Tray Sequence setting.

Duplex (Two-Sided)Printing

Duplex (Two-Sided)Printing

Once the optional Duplex Module is installed and Duplex printing is enabled in the Control Panel, you can print two-sided(duplex) jobs. Duplex printing can also be enabled from your printer driver.

Use only the size paper listed in Table 2.3 fortwo-sidedjobs. Do not use envelopes, card stock, transparencies, or label paper for duplex jobs.
