Before you install the extended media tray you will have to remove the existing paper feeder tray (A) from the multi-purpose tray. First, use the top notch and open up the printers front tray. Take hold of each side of the second tray down, the top tray has sliding media guides you’ll need, and gently push the sides down. Now bow the centre upwards, this will enable you to simply slide the tray forwards, out of its housing slots.

Position the feeder tray with the printed side facing upwards and the cut out slots towards the printer. Gently bend the sides downwards, bowing the centre up and push the tray home into the housing slots left by the removed paper tray. Make sure you push the tray all the way into the housing slots to finish installing it.

The tray works exactly the same as a native tray, by using gravity to help slide components down towards the rollers which pull them into the printing mechanism.

Then Load Your Media Components

Now the feeder tray is installed, you’re ready to load plate components onto it. To do so, simply place your sheets onto the tray and then butt them right up to the printer. Orientate any pre-printed media with the flags or logos situated furthest away from the printer. Place any media with the side you wish to print on facing upwards. Use the sliding guides on the top paper tray to help position and secure components into place.

There are individual C532 article guides on loading film and reflective components.
