Loading Paper into the Multi-drawer Paper Deck-E

The lifter inside the paper decks rises and descends automatically. When loading paper, be careful not to get your fingers caught, as this may result in personal injury.
If paper runs out and printing is stopped when you are printing with the staple setting, do not remove the output sheets that are waiting to be stapled. (Printing and stapling resume after you clear the paper jam.)
If you need to lift up the lifter (for example, if you drop objects inside the paper deck), do not lift up the lifter more than 50 mm or diagonally, as this may result in a malfunction or damage to the machine.
Do not lift up the lifter inside the paper decks while the main power is ON, as this may result in a malfunction or damage to the machine. If you need to lift up the lifter, for example, if you drop objects, turn OFF the main power with the paper decks open. For instructions on shutting down the machine, see Turning ON the Machine.
You can load custom size paper if both of the paper sides are between 182 mm and 487.7 mm in length, and between 139.7 mm and 330.2 mm in width. You cannot load custom size paper if either one of the sides is smaller or larger than the paper sizes that can be loaded.
If a message prompting you to load paper appears during printing, the remaining prints are automatically made after you load the correct paper. If you select a different paper source, the remaining prints are made after you press <OK>.
To cancel printing, press <Cancel>.
