Loading forms

Follow the load forms procedures when any of the following occur:

Note:
If you are not familiar with loading forms on continuous forms printers, see About forms and forms path for detailed information about the paper path.

All messages that you respond to while loading forms will appear on both the touch panels and on the printer operator panel display. Most of the controls that you need to use are available on both the touch panels and the printer operator panel. However, some may only be available on the touch panels.

You can load most forms using automatic load procedures. Automatic load procedures use the Auto Load button, which automatically loads the forms through the transfer station, across the tension arm and bridge, and into the fuser entry area, and finally moves them into the forms exit area.

If the Auto Load button is disabled (such as when the damper kit feature is installed), you can load the forms using manual load procedures. Manual load procedures require that you manually thread the forms through the transfer station, across the tension arm and bridge, and into the fuser entry area and then use the Form Feed button to move the forms into the forms exit area.

Alternative procedures are provided for loading special purpose forms, like preprinted forms, and changing forms.
