The MP tray can print various materials, including cardstock, envelopes, labels, and more. You can print more materials with the MP tray than a cassette tray. If you have more questions about these trays, contact a BDS specialist, and we will answer all questions!

To get started on bypassing your tray on your Kyocera printer, begin by:

  1. Access the MP tray by pulling down the latch at the front of the device and slide the tray out.
  2. Load your paper. When loading your paper, ensure that the print side is faced up, as the internal paper width guides to the paper. The guides allow you to adjust the paper size depending on your printing material.
  3. Access control panel
  4. Select the system Menu counter key and scroll to common settings.
  5. Scroll down to the original paper set and press ok.
  6. Scroll down to the MP tray set and press ok.
  7. Select mp tray size and press ok.
  8. Select paper size (letter is most common) and press ok.
  9. Select the MP tray set and paper type.
  10. Exit settings to finish & print.
  11. Repeat the process when changing paper material.

Before You Print

Before printing, it’s crucial you ensure you have selected the correct paper type on your Kyocera device. If not, you may experience paper jams, which, in some cases, can be extremely difficult to remedy and cause even more damage to your device. Always double-check to ensure you have the correct size guidelines and that your paper width controls are adjusted correctly to avoid malfunctions.
