Precautions When Connecting to a TM Printer
Before the DM-D500 is connected to a TM printer, check the serial
number on the label affixed to the rear or bottom of the TM printer.
If the serial number is one of the numbers listed in the following
table, the printer can be connected to the DM-D500 without an
additional board. If the serial number is not listed in the table, the
DM-D500 requires the latest model of the UB-S01 board (Part code:

The DM-D stand comes with inch-type hexagonal lock screws installed to
secure the interface cable to the interface connector for the RS-232C. If
you plan to use an interface cable that requires millimeter-type lock
screws, replace the inch-type screws with the included millimeter-type
screws using a hex screwdriver (5 mm {0.2"}). To distinguish the two
types of screws, see illustration 66.

Precautions on using the power supply unit
To avoid damage to the DM-D500 and the power supply unit, note
the following points.
❏ Use the optional Seiko Epson products, PS-170, PA-6508,
PA-6511, PA-6513, PB-6509, or PB-6510, as the power supply.
❏ Never connect the DC cable to the power supply unit when the
power supply unit is connected.
❏ Unplug the DC cable by holding the connector part. If you pull
the cable to unplug it, it may be damaged.
Assembling
1. Pass the cable for the DM-D500 through the DM-D stand as
shown in illustration 68. When raising the height of the DM-D
stand, attach the extension support (DP-105) to the DM-D stand
as shown in illustration 69.

4. Connect one end of the computer interface cable to the
computer connector on the DM-D stand; then connect the other
end to the RS-232C connector on the computer as shown in
illustration 72. Tighten the screws on both ends of the cables to
fasten them.

5. If using the unit as a standalone, go to step 6. When using the
DM stand with the printer, connect one end of the printer
interface cable for the printer to the printer connector on the
DM-D stand; then connect the other end to the connector on the
printer as shown in illustration 73. Tighten the screws on both
ends of the cable to fasten them.

6. If not using the extension cable packed with the DM-D stand
for power supply, go to step 7. When using the extension cable,
connect it (with the arrow mark up) to the extension cable
connector indicated with “POWER OUT” on the DM-D stand;
then connect the other end to the power connector on the
printer as shown in illustration 74.

8. When using as a standalone product, set the jumpers as shown
in “Jumper settings” on page 22.
9. Arrange the cables as shown in
illustration 76. Put the cables for the
DM-D500 inside the DM-D stand.
10. Attach the base plate to the DM-D
stand following the numbers of the
arrows shown in illustration 77.
Then, push the base plate until it is
locked by the hook on the DM-D
stand.

11. When the extension support (DP-105) is used, attach Velcro
tapes to the four corners of the plate to keep it from falling
down.
12. Connect the cord of the power unit to the socket.

(*1) The “Y-connection enable” is set when a TM printer with no modular jack for the DM-D is
connected with this product, using one COM port to connect both TM printer and DM
display. In this case, an optional DM-D stand (DP-501) and a connecting cable are required.
In cases other than above, choose “Y-connection disabled” (default setting).
(*2) This function can select whether or not you perform self test when turning on the power.
See “Self Test” for details.
(*3) When selecting “20 column and 2 line mode,” this product can be used like the
DM-D105/106/205/206. In this case, the graphic display and the original functions for the
DM-D500 cannot be used; however, by selecting “256 × 64 dots mode,” they can be used.
(*4) When setting to “Printer is selected,” data is sent to the TM printer, but is not displayed on
the display. When setting to “Display is selected,” data is displayed on the display but is not
output from the TM printer. The selection can be changed using the <ESC=> command.
(*5) Stays at OFF setting.
Note:
❏ The changes in DIP switch settings are effective when the power is
turned on again.
❏ The data transmission setting, such as data length and transmission
speed, must be the same on both your computer and printer.
Setting the DIP switches
CAUTION:
Turn off the DM-D500 while removing the DIP switch cover to prevent
electrical damage to the DM-D500.
1. Turn off the power for the DM-D500.

3. Change each setting of the switches with a pointed object, such
as a pen tip or small screwdriver.
4. Close the cover, and turn the power on.
Turning and Tilting the DM-D500
You can turn or tilt the display while holding the support. The
display can be moved easily, so do not move it any further if it
stops. If you move it by force, you may damage it.
With the “DM-D pole unit for IR” (DP-504) and the “DM-D pole
unit for TM printers (Type B)” (DP-503), the display area may not
face the direction you desire. In this case, remove the base, change
the position of the tab on the base so that the display faces in the
direction you desire, and reattach it to the base as shown in
illustration 80.
48°
45° for left
(you can turn the

The display area has the following range of movement:
❏ Tilt: 48° max. (4 steps, 5 positions)
❏ Horizontal rotation: 90° max. (45° for each left and right)
30 DM-D500 Installation Guide
English
Self Test
The DM-D500 has a self test function. If you want to perform a self
test, you must change the setting of the DIP switch.
Check Items of Self Test
The following items are checked during the self test:
❏ Control ROM version
❏ DIP switch settings
❏ Example of display characters
❏ Example of each function, such as brightness, flashing, and
scroll
Performing Self Test
To perform the self test, follow the steps below.
1. Turn off the power for the DM-D500.
2. Set the SW 2-2 of the DIP switch 2 to ON, and turn on the
power.
Note:
If the contents of the self test are not displayed, the DM-D500 may be
malfunctioning. Contact your DM-D500 dealer for assistance.
When the self test is finished and no error occurs, the cursor is
displayed at the home position; then the DM-D500 is ready to
receive data.
