Ensure the Tray 1 size sensing wheel on the printer is in place and moves freely. (See red arrow in right-hand image for the normal operating position.) Close the tray.

Tray 1 does not have "Auto Size Sensing" as do the other trays. These size sensing wheels are missing for Tray 2 to Tray 5. These four trayshave 'fingers' located at the back of the machine and the moving tray guides select the paper size (NOT the size sensing wheels;

7Are you printing on regular plain bond copy paper? If not, try printing again with plain copy paper. This will eliminate specialty media as a possible partial cause of the issue. In addition to plain paper, various sizes and types of paper and specialty media can be used in Tray 1. For more information on recommended paper types, please refer to the User's Guide.No Image
