    LOADING PAPER Special papers Follow these guidelines when using special papers. ● Use SHARP recommended transparency film and label sheets. Using other than SHARP recommended paper may result in misfeeds or smudges on the output. If other than SHARP recommended media must be used, feed each sheet one at a time using the bypass tray (do not attempt continuous copying or printing). ● There are many varieties of special paper available on the market, and some cannot be used with this machine. Before using special paper, contact a SHARP service center. ● Before using other than SHARP recommended paper, make a test copy to see if the paper is suitable. 2 LOADING THE PAPER TRAY Note Make sure that the paper is not torn, is free of dust, and has no wrinkles or curled edges. 1 Raise the handle of the paper tray and pull the paper tray out until it stops. 2 Remove the pressure plate lock.

    LOADING PAPER 4 Fan the paper and insert it into the tray. Make sure that the edges go under the corner hooks. Note 5 Gently push the paper tray back into the machine. Note 20 • Do not load paper above the maximum height line ( ). Exceeding the line will cause a paper misfeed. • If the paper is not fanned, double-feeds or misfeeds may occur. • Make sure the stack of paper is straight before loading it. When adding paper, take the remaining paper out and combine it into a single stack with the new paper. • Make sure that all the paper in the stack is the same size and type. • When loading paper, ensure that there is no space between the paper and the guide, and make sure that the guide is not set too narrow and causes the paper to bend. Incorrect loading will cause the paper to skew or misfeed. • If you loaded a different size of paper than was loaded previously in the tray, go to "CHANGING A TRAY'S PAPER SIZE SETTING" (p.23) • When not using th ...
