Print Head Release Button Hole
Perform the following steps to release the print head when you cannot
remove a disc from the printer due to printer malfunction. Normally, you
should not use the following procedure to release the print head. Use this
procedure only when the print head fails to release normally due to
malfunction.
1. Insert a thin object* into the hole and press.
• This will cause the print head to release the disc so you can remove
it from the printer.
2. Remove the disc from the printer (page 21).
3. Open the cassette cover and
press the release lever as shown
in the illustration nearby.
• Note that you will not be able
to print again if the release
lever is in the raised position.
* Use an object that is at least 30mm (1-3/16") long and no thicker than
1.5mm (1/16"). Do not use a toothpick or other object with an easily
breakable tip. Doing so creates the risk of printer malfunction.

Memory Data Backup
•
•
The power to retain the data you input and store in printer memory is
provided by a built-in memory backup battery. When the replacement
date indicated on the sticker affixed to the back of the printer is reached,
the battery will start to weaken, creating the risk that memory data will
be corrupted or lost. Be sure to take the printer to your retailer or your
nearest CASIO service center to have the memory backup battery
replaced before the replacement date is reached. Note that you will be
charged for backup battery replacement.
Be sure to keep separate backup copies of all important data you have
stored in printer memory.
Initializing Printer Memory
You should initialize the memory of the printer before using it for the first time,
after you have not used it for a long time, or if it fails to operate normally when
you turn power on.
Important!
Initializing printer memory clears its memory of all input data.
To initialize printer memory
1. Make sure that the printer is turned off.
2. While holding down the PRINT and ESC keys, press
. Release
first, but keep PRINT and ESC depressed until power turns on and a confirmation message appears on the display.
3. In response to the confirmation message that appears, press SET to initialize the printer memory or ESC to abort.
Data Error
Whenever you turn on the printer, it performs an internal check of its memory
and functions. If it finds a serious data problem, it will display the following
message:
DATA ERROR! INITIALIZE THE PRINTER!
When this message appears, press any key. Next, in response to the “INITIALIZE? SET/ESC” message that appears, press SET to initialize printer
memory (which deletes everything in memory) or ESC to clear the message
without initializing.

■ To check the appearance of a disc label layout
1. Press PREVIEW.
Note
• It is recommended that you print on a disc before you record anything on it.
Note that CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. will not be held responsible for any
data that is lost during printing.
• Before printing, be sure to check the “Printing Precautions” and make sure
the disc you are about to print on is acceptable.
• Do not try to print on a single CD-R or a business card size CD-R disc.
Trying to print on such discs can damage the printer. This printer supports
printing on 12cm diameter discs only.
• Place the printer on a level surface when printing. A tilted surface can make
normal printing impossible.
• This will cause an image of the disc label
layout to scroll on the display.
• If the disc label layout has text in both the
upper print area (AREA A) and the lower
print area (AREA B), a print area selection
screen will appear here. Use
and
to select the print area you want to preview
and then press SET to scroll the print area’s

to select DISC, and then press SET.
4. With the area of the disc you want to print on facing downwards, slide the
disc from right to left into the slit along the top of the printer.
• Inserting the disc into the slot will cause the positioning guide to rise up.
• If the disc has a logo or any other markings on it, be sure to position it so
printing will be performed in an area that is blank.
E
20
Important!
• Handle the disc gently when sliding it into place. Rough handling can
damage the disc or the positioning guide.
• Check to make sure that there is no dirt, dust, or other foreign matter on
the disc. Dirt or dust can scratch the recording surface of the disc and
make it impossible to record data onto it.
• Sliding the disc onto the slit with the recording side facing you will result
in printing on the recording side of the disc, which will make the disc
unrecordable.
5. Slide the disc to the left as far as it will go.
• Make sure you slide the disc to the left as far as it will go. Normal printing
may not be possible if the disc is not positioned properly inside the printer.
7. Press SET to start printing.
Important!
• Never turn off the printer while it is performing a print operation.
• Make sure there is nothing to the right of the printer that can obstruct
movement of the disc when it exits the slit.
• Never touch the disc while a print operation is in progress. Doing so can
scratch the disc or cause malfunction of the printer.
• Never open the cassette cover while printing is in progress or while a
disc is inserted in the printer. Doing so can scratch the disc or cause
malfunction of the printer.
8. When printing is complete, the disc will stop moving and the screen shown
here will appear on the display.
9. Pull the disc to the right and remove it from the printer.
6. If the label of the disc already has a logo or other marking on it, perform
the operation illustrated below to align it for proper printing.
Printing will
appear here.
• Adjust the position of the disc so its logo or marking is parallel with the
positioning guide and slit.
• Note that the printer cannot print in an area of the disc that already has
a logo or other markings.
• You can skip this step if the disc you are using does not have a logo or
other markings on it.
Important!
• If you have trouble removing the disc from the printer, see page 4.
