Part 1: The Canon Device
- Click settings/registration
- Click Paper settings twice
- Click the tray you want to adjust
- Click set
- Paperweight selections pop up
Things to remember:
- To learn more about what the selections actually cover click detailed settings and on the right, it will tell you what each selection covers
- The g/m2 can be found on the paper ream packaging, but it may also list the paper type and weight in pounds.
- Here is a chart to help you go back and forth between imperial and metric. http://askdsi.com/files/DSI-Paper-Chart.pdf
- If you don’t see the paperweight setting you want, it’s because the tray that you selected cannot handle the paperweight.
- If you see a paperweight selection for one of your trays but not the other, it’s because the first paper tray can handle the weight while the second one cannot.
- If you’re going to be using your new paper stock for copying then you’re ready to go, but if looking to print with new paper stock then must adjust print settings on your computer as well. SEE PART 2 BELOW!

Part 2: Changing Settings On Your Computer
*This example is using Microsoft Word
- Click File
- Printer properties
- Make sure all options in the basic settings match the one on the printer
- Check page size
- Check the one-sided or two-sided option
- Page source
- Make sure feeding from the correct tray
- Choose paper type or leave on auto
- Make sure settings all match printer before printing
Things to remember:
- Auto means it will automatically choose the paper type selected on the printer, but under settings, it’s more accurate in terms of the paperweight.
- If the paper settings on your computer do not match the paper settings on your printer, your print job will not go through.
