3.8 Automatic Paper-Type Sensor

The Automatic Paper-Type Sensor automatically selects the appropriate print

settings for the media that is being printed on, particularly HP media.
When the Automatic Paper-Type Sensor is engaged, the printer scans the first page

of a document with a red optical sensor light to determine the best paper-type

setting. After the printer determines the paper-type setting, the page is printed.
Do not place the printer in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can interfere with the

Automatic Paper-Type Sensor.
To use the Automatic Paper-Type Sensor, see the

paper-type selection


Note: The Automatic Paper-Type Sensor is not available for documents that are

printed from the

250-Sheet Plain Paper Tray Accessory

or the

Auto Two-

Sided Print Accessory with Small Paper Tray
