Tray problems


Step 1

  1. Pull out the tray, and then do one or more of the following:

    • Check for paper jams or misfeeds.
    • Check if the paper size indicators on the paper guides are aligned with the paper size indicators on the tray.
    • If you are printing on custom‑size paper, then make sure that the paper guides rest against the edges of the paper.
    • Make sure the paper is below the maximum paper fill indicator.
    • Make sure paper lies flat in the tray.
  2. Check if the tray closes properly.
