Tips on using transparencies

  • From the printer control panel, set the paper size, type, texture, and weight in the Paper menu to match the transparencies loaded in the tray.
  • Print a test page on the transparencies being considered for use before buying large quantities.
  • Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers.
  • Avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies to prevent print quality problems.
  • Before loading transparencies, flex and fan the sheets to prevent them from sticking together.
  • When printing on large volumes of transparencies, make sure to print by batches of only up to 20 with an interval of at least three minutes between batches, to prevent the transparencies from sticking together in the bin. You can also remove transparencies from the bin by batches of 20.
