Shefin :
Hello! Thank you for your question. I am Shefin and I look forward to helping you with your issue today.
Shefin :
Please let me know when you are ready.

Ready

Shefin :

Open the Paper Support, and open the support as an extension.

Shefin :

Open the Paper Output Tray gently.

Customer:

is the paper support in the back of the machine?

Shefin :

Yes.

Shefin :

Slide the Paper Guides (A) to open them, and load the paper in the center of the Rear Tray WITH THE PRINT SIDE FACING YOU.

Shefin :

Slide the Paper Guides (A) to align them with both sides of the paper stack.

Do not slide the Paper Guides too hard. The paper may not be fed properly.

Always load paper in the portrait orientation (B). Loading paper in the landscape orientation (C) can cause paper jams.
