At the printer control panel (tractorless forms or no Auto Load controls)

Note:
Hold the tension arm down so that it stays aligned with the blue mark on the guide notch while you do the following steps. Otherwise, the 079A CHECK TENSION ARM 079A message appears when you turn on the forms path vacuum, and you must do the Check Tension Arm procedure.
  1. Turn off the forms path vacuum by pressing the Vacuum push button in the input area. The Vacuum-Off warning indicator flashes and then stays lit.
  2. Use the Forms Feed keys on the printer control panel to feed the forms over the tension arm and into the preheat platen area, guiding them with your other hand. Keep feeding the forms until the scuff rollers grab them and feed them into the stacker area. Continue feeding the forms until there is enough length to allow you to splice the forms before feeding them into the post processor, or until there is enough length to reach the post processor.
  3. Ensure that the tension arm is aligned correctly. The mark on the tension arm (1) should be visible in the notch in the transfer station frame. See Checking the tension arm.
