Changing the paper tray settings on a Kyocera TASKalfa printer may vary depending on the specific model.
VIDEO: Kyocera paper tray settings
Here is a general guide to help you navigate the process.
Access the Control Panel: #
On the Kyocera TASKalfa printer interface, locate the paper settings icon on the top bar.
Select the Paper tray: #
Once in the Kyocera Copier paper tray settings, you should see a list of available trays. Select the tray you want to configure. There are two types of paper settings that you can change.
Adjust paper size #
Within the selected tray, you should find options to set paper size and type. Use the touchscreen or navigation buttons to choose the desired paper size (e.g., letter, legal, A4) and paper type (e.g., plain, letterhead, glossy).
Note: Paper size:
Keeping your paper size on auto will allow the MFP Copier to automatically adjust the guides and tell the user which paper is being loaded. This reduces print driver conflicts.
Adjust Media Type #
This will adjust the tension of the rollers as the paper goes through, or if it is an envelope, it will ensure it will not come out crinkly. Adjusting the media type will also adjust how hot the fuser gets so the toner melts cleanly on the piece of paper.
Letterhead paper is finer, and it will reduce the heat the fuser needs on the paper. It’s important to change the media type before printing.
It’s important to Adjust the media type paper settings according to the thickness and weight of paper you use.
If you’re unable to find the specific settings on the printer’s control panel, you may also be able to access these settings through the printer’s web interface. To do this:
Open a Web Browser: #
Enter the printer’s IP address in a web browser. You can usually find the IP address in the printer’s settings or by printing a configuration page.
Login to the Web Interface:
Log in using the printer’s administrator credentials.
Navigate to Paper Tray Settings: #
Look for a section or menu related to paper settings. The specific location may vary, so consult the user manual or look for options related to paper trays.
Adjust Settings: #
Similar to the control panel method, you can adjust paper size and type for each tray through the web interface.
Save Changes: #
After making changes, look for an option to save or apply your settings.
Remember that the steps might differ slightly based on the model and firmware version of your Kyocera TASKalfa printer, so refer to the user manual for precise instructions tailored to your device.
