  1. Release the separator locking lever [A] (located on operator’s side of the feeder), then raise the separators [B] to the up and locked position. Move the side guides [C] to the outermost open position. Place one piece of media in the center of the feeder.
  2. Adjust Separators. Use the two center separators for narrow media and all four separators for wide media. Place the media under the separators and lower the separators so that they rest on the media.
  3. Rotate the locking lever up to lock the separators in place.

  5. Adjust the side guides to within 1/32" (0.8 mm) of the media.
  6. Tighten the knobs.
  7. Adjust the rear guide [D] so that the media is raised about 1/2" (12 mm) and rests on the curve of the rear guide. When running 10" (254 mm) or longer or heavy media, you may have to set the rear guide so that it just touches the back of the media.
