In order to print to certain paper types correctly. We must program the machine to know what size and type paper it is using. This will ensure that you get the highest quality prints. This guide will show you how to program the bypass tray to use cardstock, envelopes, labels, etc.
In copy mode. You can see the bypass tray on the right side of the machines graphic. Right now it is set to “Plain” but what if we wanted to use envelopes instead? To the right of the touch screen, push the “System Settings” button
On the “System Settings” screen, push the “Paper Tray Settings” button.

Now you should see “Bypass” on the top of the screen. I have this highlighted above. Push the “Change” button. I have this button highlighted in the example above.
In the “Type” section, hit the down arrow and now we can see a list of the different paper types that the bypass tray can be set to. In this example, I am going to set the bypass tray to “Envelope” Use this scroll bar or the Arrows to navigate the Menu to find what paper Type you want to set The bypass tray to
Now I am going to choose what size I want to set it to. In this example I am Going to use “COM-10”

Now I have programmed the bypass tray to use “Envelopes” and set the size to “COM-10.” Push the CA key on the keypad to take you back to the main “copy” screen. I have this button highlighted in the example to the right.
In the example above, you can see that “Envelope” is on the bypass tray. The arrow is pointing to this. Congratulations! you have now programmed the bypass tray! In order to print to this tray, we must now also Update the printer driver so that the computer can print to it correctly.
