Warning
Power supply and voltage
• Use only a power source whose output matches the rating marked
on the plate on the bottom of the label printer. Also, avoid plugging
too many appliances into the same extension cord. The wrong voltage
or overloading of an AC outlet creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock.
Serious malfunction
• Continued use of the unit when smoke or a strange odor is coming
from it creates the danger of electrical shock. Immediately turn power
off and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Request servicing
from your original dealer.
AC adaptor
• Do not allow the power cord to become damaged or broken, and
never modify, over bend, twist, or pull it. Never place heavy objects
on the power cord, and never expose it to direct heat. A damaged
power cord creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Use only the AC adaptor specified for this unit (optional AD-A95100).
Use of another AC adaptor creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock.
• Should the power cord become seriously damaged (internal wiring is
exposed or cut), request servicing from your original dealer. Use of a
seriously damaged power cord creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock.
• Never touch the AC adaptor when your hands are wet. Doing so
creates the danger of electrical shock.
Never try to take the unit apart
• Never try to take the unit apart or modify it in any way. Doing so creates
the danger of electrical shock, burn injury, or other personal injury.
• Never remove the outer cover of the unit. Exposure of high-voltage
components inside creates the danger of electrical shock.
Packaging
• Keep the plastic bag that the unit comes in out of the reach of small
children. Plastic bags create the danger of suffocation for small
children.
Avoid dropping
• Should the unit ever become damaged by falling down, immediately
turn off power and unplug the power cord from the wall socket. Request
servicing from your original dealer. Use of a damaged unit creates
the danger of fire and electrical shock.
Batteries
• Never charge batteries, try to take batteries apart, or allow batteries
to become shorted. Never expose batteries to direct heat or dispose
of them by incineration.
Tape Cutter
• Never touch the tape cutter while a tape cut operation is being
performed. Doing so can result in cuts and other personal injury.

plug. Never pull on the cord itself. Doing so can damage the power
cord and create the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Whenever leaving the unit unattended for long periods, be sure to
unplug it from the wall socket.
• At least once a year, unplug the AC adaptor from the electrical outlet
and clean the area around the prongs of the plug. Dust build up around
the prongs creates the danger of fire.
• Whenever moving the unit, be sure to unplug it from the wall socket.
Leaving the unit plugged in when it is being moved can result in damage
to the power cord and create the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Whenever cleaning the unit, be sure to unplug it from the wall socket.
• When you are through using the unit, use its power switch to turn it
off and then unplug it from the wall socket.
Avoid unstable areas
• Never place the unit on a wobbly table or a high shelf. Doing so can
cause it to fall, resulting in personal injury.
Water and other foreign matter
• Never allow coffee, juice, or other drinks, or flower vases to spill on the
unit. Liquid spilled on the unit creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock. Should liquid ever spill onto the unit, immediately turn off power
and unplug the power cord from the wall socket. Request servicing
from your original dealer.
• Never allow metal objects or combustible materials to get into the air
vents of the unit. Doing so creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock.
E-2
Location
• Avoid leaving the unit in areas subjected to high humidity and large
amounts of dust. Such conditions create the danger of fire and
electrical shock.
• Avoid leaving the unit on a kitchen table, next to a humidifier, or in
any other area where it might come into contact with oil vapors or
steam. Such conditions create the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Never place heavy objects on the unit. Doing so creates the danger
of the unit falling, resulting in personal injury.
Batteries
• Misuse of batteries can cause them to leak acid that can cause
damage to nearby items and creates the possibility of personal injury.
• Be sure that the plus (+) and minus (–) sides of each battery are
facing correctly.
• Never mix batteries of different types.
• Never mix new batteries and dead batteries.
• Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use KL-7200E for a long
time.
• Use only the battery type specified for this label printer in this manual.

Part 5
Character Size, Text Effects and Character Styles
This part of the manual explains how to set the size of characters.
It also tells you how to assign text effects like underlining, shading, and box
printing, and how to select character styles like normal, outline, shadow, and
raised.
Character Size
There are two methods you can use to set the character size: AUTO and
MANUAL. With AUTO (Justification Mode), character size is set automatically
in accordance with the tape size you are using and the number of lines you are
printing. MANUAL lets you set the character size manually.
The following table shows how AUTO decides which character size to use.

Part 6
Printing
This part of the manual includes all the information you need to print tapes. It
also tells you how to print special stamp tapes that you can attach to an optional
stamp holder to create your own original stamps.
Printing Precautions
• Never turn power off while printing is being performed.
• Make sure that the tape outlet is not blocked before you start printing.
• Never operate the tape cutter while printer is being performed (indicated by
the message “NOW PRINTING” on the display).
• During printing at very high density, printing of very long text, or repeat printing
of the same text a number of times, the Label Printer may stop printing for
about five seconds. This is not a malfunction, and normal printing should
resume shortly (indicated by the message “NOW PRINTING” on the display).
Important!
• Never touch the tape cutter while a tape cut operation is being performed.
Doing so can result in cuts and other personal injury.
Printing a Tape
Printing a tape is as easy as pressing the PRINT key.
To print a tape
1. Press the PRINT key to print a tape of the text you have input and laid out.
• To stop a print operation that is in progress, press ESC.
2. After the print operation is complete, press down on the tape cutter button to
cut the tape.
3. Use scissors to trim the tape to the size you want, if necessary.
• After you print a tape, you can peel off its paper
backing and stick the tape onto the object you
Backing
want. Note that the tape will not stick on coarse,
wet, oily, or soiled surfaces. Also, you should not
try to use the tape where it is exposed to direct
Tape
sunlight or rain. Do not stick the tape onto human
skin.
E-16
• An easy way to remove the backing from a tape
and expose the adhesive surface is to bend the
tape near one of its ends. This should cause the
tape and its backing to separate, allowing you to
pull them apart.
Mirror Image Printing
When you specify mirror image for text, it is printed in reverse image. Use mirror
image when you plan to print on transparent tape, with the printing on the inside.
When viewed through the transparent tape, the text will appear normal. You
can also use mirror image printing when using iron-on transfer tape to print ironon transfers.

printing is turned on.
• After you turn printing on, input text and perform the print operation as you
normally do to produce mirror image tapes.
Other Printing Features and Operations
The following are other operations and settings that you may need to use when
printing.
Auto Feed
You can turn the Label Printer’s auto feed feature on and off. When auto feed is
on, the Label Printer automatically feeds the tape about 19mm at the beginning
and end of each print operation. This creates identical margins on both sides of
your text.
Important!
• After you finish printing when using manual feed, be sure to always press
FUNC and then PRINT (FEED) to feed the tape before cutting it. If you don’t
you will cut off part of the printed text.

• You cannot use 6mm or 9mm tapes to print bar codes.
• With bar codes, you can only input numeric characters (0 to 9). EAN-8 allows
input of seven digits, while EAN-13 allows input of 12 digits.
• Always test bar codes produced using this label printer before actually using
them. If bar codes cannot be read properly, try adjusting the print density or
using a larger character size.
• Do not use consecutive printing for bar codes.Consecutive printing can result
in bar codes that cannot be read by a bar code reader.
The print density setting controls how darkly figures are printed on your tapes.
