Description:
This command enables the printer to restore from an error state after clearing the receive and print buffers.
Remarks:
■ This command can be executed in a real time mode with DLE preceding it.
■ In a real time mode, upon receiving this command, the printer carries out the resume operation to get back normal by
clearing error conditions.
■ With a serial interface, the error state of the printer, limited to recoverable errors, can be removed by sending this
command even if the printer is in offline or busy condition.
■ With a parallel interface, this command is not performed in a busy condition because the printer can not receive the
data from the host.

However, since the mode specified by the memory switch(Msw8-5) is set to the default mode, the receipt mode
becomes effective after the printer reset or power cycling is executed.
■ The memory switch(Msw8-5) should be enabled to maintain the label mode after the printer reset or power cycling.
■ Once the printer has entered the label mode, it is necessary to perform the procedures as follows for the proper
operation:
• Executing the automatic calibration to figure out the location of each label or black mark paper.
• Readjusting the printing position by pressing paper Feed button or opening/closing the printer cover.

Remarks:
■ pL, pH is used to set the number of bytes following pH to (pL + pH x 256).
■ The change in the items of the NV user memory is available only after entering the user setting mode.
■ After completing the user setting mode (Function 2), the printer performs software reset to restore the initial settings
in effect at power on. Receive and print buffers are cleared as well.
■ Since frequent write operation by this command may deteriorate the performance of the NV memory, it is
recommended to write to NV memory when the significant change in the setting is required.

■ Since frequent writing operation could cause the damage to the NV memory, it is recommended to write only when
being required.
■ While storing data by this command, the printer is in BUSY state where receiving of data is not available. Therefore, it
is not recommended to send data during this process.

Description:
■ This command defines user-defined characters for character codes in a designated range from the start character
code, c1 to the end character code, c2.
• y denotes the number of bytes in the vertical direction, x the number of dots in the horizontal direction, and d the
dot data for the user-defined characters.
Remarks:
■ Alphanumeric characters (20H (decimal 32) to 7EH (decimal 126)) are definable.
■ Once user defined characters are defined, they remain available until they are redefined; ESC ? or ESC @ is
executed; the printer is reset.

Description:
■ This command sets the value for the adjustment of paper cutting position after sensing BM.
• pL, pH specifies (pL + pH × 256) as the number of bytes after pH (m, a, nL, and nH)
• nL, nH specifies [(nL + nH × 256) × vertical motion units] as the adjustment value.
Remarks:
■ This command affects to the cutting operations as follows:
• Paper cut by GS V m n.
• Paper cut after paper feeding triggered by the paper FEED button.
• Paper cut after initializing the BM.(optional)
• Paper cut after paper feeding with the cover closed.(optional)
■ This command is only effective for the forward paper feeding.
■ The maximum adjustable length is 400 mm. If the adjustment value to be specified exceeds the maximum value, the
adjustment value is automatically set to the maximum value.

to see if the printer is running properly.
Once ASB has been enabled, the printer continues to transmit the current printer status at the specified interval until
ASB is disabled.
When n = 0, ASB is disabled. The printer stops transmitting the status.
With parallel and USB interface, the printer status is transmitted whenever the host computer changes to the reverse
mode regardless of the printer status change. It is recommended that the periodic time interval at which the host
changes to reverse mode is more than 500ms in order to receive the correct status.
With serial interface, ASB status is transmitted continuously at the interval of 1 sec even if the status is not changed.
The setting of this command remains effective until ESC @, printer reset or power cycling is executed.

Bits 2 and 3: This command can not be executed when the printer is offline due to the lack of paper. Therefore, the
status of bit 2 (1) and bit 3 (1) is not transmitted.

• xL, xH specifies (xL + xH x 256) byte(s) in the horizontal direction for the bit image.
• yL, yH specifies (yL + yH x 256) dot(s) in the vertical direction for the bit image.
• d specifies the definition data of the bit image data.
Remarks:
■ In standard mode, this command is effective when the printer buffer is empty and the printer is in the beginning of the
line. If the buffer is not empty, after processing m, the printer treats the following data as normal data.
■ In page mode, the bit image is stored in the print buffer, not being printed.
■ None of the print modes such as emphasized, double-strike, etc, affects the printing of the bit image.
