Printing on inappropriate type of paper.
Check to see if the paper you are printing on is not too thick or curled.
See “Media Types You Cannot Use” on page 9.
When performing Borderless Printing, print quality may be reduced at the top 
and bottom edges of the paper. Make sure that the paper you are using is 
suitable for Borderless Printing.
For details, refer to the Printer Driver Guide on-screen manual.
Paper is curled.
If you are using paper with either any of the corners or the whole printing 
surface curled, the paper may become dirty, not feed properly, or both. Use such 
paper after correcting paper curl as follows.
(1)With the printing side (A) facing up, cover the paper with a fresh sheet of 
plain paper to avoid staining or scratching the surface.
(2)Roll up the paper in a direction opposite to paper curl as seen below.
(3)Check to see that the paper curl is corrected to within approximately 0.08 to 
0.2 inches / 2 to 5 mm (B) in height.
We recommend printing curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.
