HP LaserJet 3015, 3020, and 3030 All-in-One Products - Loading Media
This section provides information about loading media in the input trays.
Media input tray
The media input tray holds up to 150 sheets of 60-g/m2 (16-lb) paper or a 25-mm (0.98-inch) stack of heavier media. Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed on facing up. To prevent jams and skew, always adjust the side media guides.
Priority input tray
The priority input tray holds up to 10 pages of 75-g/m2 (20-lb) paper or one envelope, transparency, or card. Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed on facing up. To prevent jams and skew, always adjust the side media guides.
If you try to print on media that is wrinkled, folded, or damaged in any way, a jam might occur. See the User Guide on the product CD for more information.
NOTE: When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding through the printer at one time, reducing jams.
Specific types of media
Media information for ADF originals
NOTE: HP LaserJet 3015: you must use a carrier sheet to scan or copy small or delicate originals (such as newsprint, business cards, and photos), or documents that have tears, perforations, or punch holes.
To make a carrier sheet, use a piece of paper and a transparency (LaserJet type transparencies work best.). Tape the leading edges together and load the original between the sheets.
HP LaserJet 3020 and 3030: you must use the flatbed to scan or copy small or delicate originals (such as newsprint, business cards, and photos), or documents that have tears, perforations, or punch holes. If you want to fax such items, first make a copy on the flatbed and then fax the copy.
Perform the following actions to minimize the possibility of jams:
NOTE: To obtain good results, it is important to use the correct re-entry and color settings for the job. See the User Guide on the product CD for more information.
Media information for the flatbed (HP LaserJet 3020 and 3030)
