on the left hand side of the paper output tray there is a small lever that lifts the front sloping flap to a horizontal position does anybody know what this lever is supposed to be for.

What sort of a question is that? You need to tell people which printer and model you are talking about and maybe upload a picture as well.

canon ts 8050. If you Google 'Canon ts 8050' you will find the manual and all the necessary instructions.

I watched this movieand couldn't see the lever you mentioned

When you've been on this site for a while you will get used to these sorts of questions and realise that people expect you to be a "mind reader".

The thread title tells you which printer so no mind reading required.

Hi JazzkennyWowy,

Welcome to this forum with your first post. Unfortunately some of our members are a bit short sighted and some a bit sarcastic but they mean well - usually.

I have a Canon TS8050 and didn't know that lever existed until you pointed it out. I have tried to find out a useful purpose for it and failed unless you count crumpling up the paper when you hold it up!

If you do find out please post back.

If in doubt. "Ne touché pas".

However, I have a theory from way back when I had a wonderful Canon Printer. However. it is just a theory.

It is adjust the Paper Tray so that you can load envelopes
