Avoid paper jams

To help avoid paper jams, follow these guidelines.

Remove printed papers from the output tray frequently.

Prevent curled or wrinkled paper by storing all unused paper flat in a resealable bag.

Ensure that paper loaded in the input tray lays flat and the edges are not bent or torn.

Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire stack
of paper in the input tray must be the same size and type.

Adjust the paper-width guide in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure
the paper-width guide does not bend the paper in the input tray.

Do not force paper too far forward in the input tray.

Use paper types that are recommended for the device. For more information, see
