    CAUTION: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth. Wash the clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into the fabric.

Connect one end of the power cord to the back of the product and the other end to an alternating current (AC) power outlet.

Step six: Load paper in the main input tray

The main input tray holds up to 150 pages of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper, or fewer pages of heavier media (a 15 mm (0.6 inches) stack height or less). The paper stack height should not exceed 25 mm (.98 inches).

CAUTION: Be aware of the paper capacities before loading.

To load paper in the main input tray, follow these steps.

  1. Extend the paper guides into the input tray out towards the edges of the paper trays.

  2. Adjust the paper guides to match the length and width of the paper that you use.

  3. Load paper with the top forward and the print side up.
    NOTE: To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and front paper guides.
