What is the upper side tray that is sticking out from the document feeder for?
R F on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi R F,

Thanks for your question. The upper side tray is known as the Bypass Tray. The Bypass tray allows for a wider array of paper stocks (heavier weight, varying sizes, etc.) to be printed. The bypass tray also has a straight paper path, which reduces the likelihood of jams.

Make sure to check the brochure for size and weight recommendations/restrictions:
