Adjusting the Level of Curl Correction

You can adjust the curl correction level for custom paper type.
This mode may affect paper feeding. Since increasing the value to a great extent may cause paper jams, adjusting the values in small increments is recommended.
Depending on the characteristic of the paper type, such as heavy paper, you may not be able to correct the paper curl properly even if you adjust the curl correction level.

Paper curl is negated by adjusting the paper in the opposite direction to which it is curled. Make test prints on the paper that you have adjusted, and check the curl correction level.
To determine the direction of the paper curl, place the paper in the same direction as it is output to the tray.
Adjust the curl correction level in the direction opposite to that of the printed paper.
