Issue: How do I specify the paper size and type?
Solution: Specifying the Paper Size and Type
Specifying the Paper Size and Type
*The paper type should be selected in the Menu.
Specifying the Paper Size At the factory, the paper size has already been set to [LTR]. Normally, you can make copies in this setting. When making copies on other sizes of paper, you need to specify the paper size according to the following.
When [ENVELOPE] is selected: Press <> or <> to select the type of envelopes (COM10, MONARCH, DL, or ISO-C5), then press <Set>.
When [FREE SIZE] is selected: Press <> or <> to select [VERTICAL SIZE] or [HORIZONTAL SIZE], then press <Set>. Use the numeric keys, or press <> or <> to specify vertical and horizontal sizes of the paper in millimeters (mm).
Available range in [VERTICAL SIZE]: 127 mm to 356 mm (5" to 14")
Available range in [HORIZONTAL SIZE]: 76 mm to 216 mm (3" to 8 1/2") Press <Set>. Repeat the steps above to specify both vertical and horizontal sizes of the paper.
Specifying the Paper Type [PLAIN PAPER] is selected as the default paper type. When making copies on paper other than plain paper, you can specify the paper type according to the following. Specifying the paper type can prevent poor copy quality, or the printout not being printed correctly.
You can select from the following paper types: - Plain paper (17 lb to 24 lb (64 g/m2 to 90 g/m2 )): [PLAIN PAPER] - Heavy paper (25 lb to 34 lb (91 g/m2 to 128 g/m2 )): [HEAVY PAPER], [HEAVY PAPER H]*1 - Transparency: [TRANSPARENCY] - Label*2 : [HEAVY PAPER], [HEAVY PAPER H]*1 - Envelope: [HEAVY PAPER], [HEAVY PAPER H]*1*1 If print fixing is not sufficient when printed with [HEAVY PAPER] selected, select [HEAVY PAPER H].
*2 A label that can be loaded in the cassette is a standard type (label standard card) only.
