Pull out the tray until it stops.
Ensure that the paper-guide locks are set in the correct position for the standard or custom-size paper that you are loading.
Flex the sheets back and forth and fan them, then align the edges of the stack on a level surface. This procedure separates any sheets that are stuck together and reduces the possibility of jams. Note: To avoid jams and misfeeds, do not remove paper from its packaging until you are ready to use it.
Load paper in the tray. Position the paper against the left side of the tray.
For long-edge feed, insert letterhead and pre-ed paper face down with the top edge toward the front of the tray. Load hole-punched paper with the holes to the left.
For short-edge feed, insert letterhead and pre-printed paper face down with the top edge to the left. Load hole-punched paper with the holes toward the rear of the printer. Note: Do not load paper above the maximum fill line. Overfilling the tray can cause the printer to jam.
Adjust the length and width guides until they touch the edges of the paper.
Close the tray.
