Use the multipurpose feeder when printing on different paper sizes and types or specialty media, such as card stock, transparencies, paper labels, and envelopes. You can also use it for single‑page print jobs on letterhead.
Open the multipurpose feeder.
Pull the multipurpose feeder extender.
Pull the extender gently so that the multipurpose feeder is fully extended and open.
Squeeze the tab on the left width guide, and then move the guides for the paper you are loading.
Prepare the paper or specialty media for loading.
Note: Avoid touching the printable side of the transparencies. Be careful not to scratch them.
Load the paper or specialty media.
Note: When loading A6‑size paper, make sure the multipurpose feeder extender rests lightly against the edge of the paper so that the last few sheets of paper remain in place.
Warning—Potential Damage: Never use envelopes with stamps, clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, or self‑stick adhesives. These envelopes may severely damage the printer.
From the printer control panel, set the paper size and paper type in the Paper menu to match the paper or specialty media loaded in the multipurpose feeder.
