Am assuming you have the printer loaded with edible ink, what kind of sheets are you using?

Do you have the manual? Try that or when you installed the drivers on your computer there should be something in there that would help you

OK, I use Icing Image sheets, which I love, BTW. They have a plain edge on one end that I feed into the printer first, hope that is right Debbie?? That is the way I have always done it and it works fine. I also just feed one sheet at a time from the back, not the cassette. Am not familiar with the 3600, does it have a place where you can feed the sheets in one at a time? And is there one end of your icing sheets that does not have icing on it? That is the way I would feed it into the printer. Hope this helps, but you can always contact kopykake or Debbie, from Icing Images, who is a member here. They might be able to help you better.

linedancer is correct, they must be fed from the top. Never put them in the cassett. I also use icingimages sheets but I feed them in the opposite direction linedancer does (I believe that's what Debbie told me to do). Debbie at icingimages is very helpfull and willing to answer all questions (even if you didn't buy from her). Phone # is on their website if you need help with printer, ink or frosting sheets.

I use that printer and those sheets. I believe the official work is always feed the exposed plastic in first, but I have done the reverse and fed in scraps too and it has worked fine. If you want to use the pre-cut rounds sheets you HAVE to feed the plastic end first or it won't line up correctly. And yes, feed from the back tray one at a time. I used to load a second sheet behind it when I had big projects to do, but that second sheet would always catch in the machine once it fed (and killed a printer once icon_sad.gif ). I now don't feed them in until the printer in READY-READY for them (sometimes it preps instead of loading right away).

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Yes! I can help!
On Icing Images premium sheets, the correct answer is.... tab in first. You can put them in either way if your printer will take it. If you are using anything but the 8.5x11 and 8.5x14 and the large sheets, you must put them in tab first.

As for KK sheets, because there is a 1/2" margin all the way around the sheet, it doesnt matter as long as you are using the back tray and facing the icing up.

I hope this helps and Happy New Year to everyone!
