Printing from Tray 2 and Tray 3

Printing tasks

Printing from Tray 2 and Tray 3

Tray 2 holds up to 250 sheets of standard paper. Tray 2 adjusts for many sizes. Optional Tray 3 holds up to 500 sheets of standard paper. Tray 3 attaches underneath Tray 2. Tray 3 accepts letter- and A4-size paper. When Tray 3 is properly installed, the printer detects it and lists Tray 3 as a choice in the control panel Configure Device menu.


The paper path for Tray 3 passes through Tray 2. If either Tray 2 or Tray 3 is partially pulled out or removed, paper from Tray 3 cannot feed into the printer. This causes the printer to jam.
