Print on transparencies or labels
Use transparencies and labels that are recommended for use in laser printers. See
Guidelines for using
for more information.
Be sure to set the correct media type in the printer settings as instructed below. The
printer adjusts the fuser temperature according to the media type setting. When printing on
special media such as transparencies or labels, this adjustment prevents the fuser from damaging
the media as it passes through the printer.
Inspect the media to make sure that it is not wrinkled or curled and that it does not
have any torn edges or missing labels.
Open the straight-through output door.
Open tray 1 and adjust the media guides to the width of the media.
Load media in tray 1. Make sure that the top of the media is forward and the side to be printed on
(rough side) is facing up.
Transparencies can be printed from tray 2, but the printing speed is slower.
Transparencies should not be printed from optional tray 3.
