PAPER FEED
PAPER FEED feeds the roll paper based on the line spacing set by the ESC 2 or ESC 3 command.
The printer feeds the roll paper if the roll paper is selected as the paper source or feeds the cut
sheet when the cut sheet is selected as the paper source.
The back of a slip is fed by the PAPER FEED button in the reverse direction to when the paper is
fed in the forward direction.
Note:
Paper cannot be fed using this button in the following cases:
Rev. A
•
When check is selected as the print sheet.
•

•
When cleaning is being performed or an error has occurred with any sheet selected.
•
When it is disabled with the ESC c 5 command.
There is the case that even if the paper source is changed, the printer may feed the previously
selected paper source.
A slip will be fed in the following case; if roll paper is selected as the paper source with the slip
paper clamped and the PAPER FEED button is pressed before the printer receives data from the
host.
CLEANING
If printing becomes faint or uneven and the INK OUT LED is not on or flashing, use this button to
clean the print head. Press the button until the printer mechanism begins to clean the print head
(more than 3 seconds). When the cleaning stops, the printer is ready for normal printing.
Note:
Do not use the CLEANING button unless there is a problem with print quality. Unnecessary cleaning
will waste ink.
Power Switch and Power Switch Cover
The power switch is on the front of the printer. Press the power switch to turn on the printer.
Note:
Turn on the power only after connecting the power supply.
Executing the power-off sequence
It is recommended to turn the power off only after executing the power-off command (DLE DC4
fn = 2). If the power is turned off without executing the power-off command, the ink will be
wasted since the cleaning is done when the printer is turned on the next time, or the ink nozzle
will be clogged if the unused period exceeds two weeks.
Note:
Never open the printer cover or turn off the printer when the POWER LED is flashing.

Inserting Slip Paper
Note:
Be sure the paper is flat, without curls, folds, or wrinkles.
Do not insert any multiple sheet paper because this may cause a paper jam. Use only single sheet paper.
Because the printer is an inkjet printer, pressure sensitive copy paper cannot be used.
To prevent jams, roll paper must be installed even for printing on slip paper.
Be sure to insert a slip with the right side of the paper against the right side of the paper guide as far as it
will go, as shown in the illustration. See the label instructions attached to the printer as a guide.
Installing or Replacing an Ink Cartridge
CAUTION:
Usage:
Do not disassemble the cartridge. The ink can permanently stain clothing.
Do not refill ink cartridges. Spills can result, causing damage to the printer.
Do not remove the cartridge except to replace it or to prepare the printer for shipment.
Otherwise, ink may be wasted and the life of the ink cartridge may be reduced.
For good printing quality, do not remove the ink cartridge from its packing until
immediately before installing it.
Use up the ink cartridge within 6 months after unpacking it.
The expiration date is indicated on the cartridge box or the ink cartridge itself.
Print quality problems may occur if an ink cartridge that is almost empty (the INK OUT
LED flashes) is removed and reinstalled.

A used cartridge may have some ink on the convex part of the bottom of the cartridge.
Avoid touching that part to keep your hands clean.
Do not puncture the convex part of the bottom of the ink cartridge or remove the
transparent film on the bottom of the ink cartridge; otherwise the ink might leak.
Once the ink cartridge is used, the ink supply needle (plastic projection) in the ink
cartridge holder that supplies ink to the printer is covered with ink. Avoid touching the
cartridge holder to keep your hands clean.
Use Seiko Epson specified ink cartridges. Performance of the printer when other ink
cartridges are used is not guaranteed.
Do not open or close the ink cartridge cover during printing. Misalignment of the print
position will occur.
Storage:
Keep the ink cartridge out of the reach of children. Do not drink the ink.
Do not store the ink cartridge where it will be subject to high temperatures or freezing.
Instructions
When the INK OUT LED flashes, it is almost time to change the ink cartridge. Change the
cartridge as soon as it is convenient. When the INK OUT LED is on, printing stops and you must
change the cartridge.
The TM-J7100 has two separate cartridges, one each for black and colored ink (either red, green,
or blue). Therefore, the TM-J7100 has two INK OUT LEDs, one for the black and one for the color.
Follow these steps to install an ink cartridge for the first time or to replace an empty ink
cartridge.
1. Make sure the printer is on. If it is not on, plug in the power supply cable and turn on the
power using the switch on the front of the printer.
2. Make sure an INK OUT LED is on or flashing. When using two colors, notice which ink
cartridge INK OUT LED is on or flashing; this indicates which cartridge is empty.
3. Be sure that roll paper is installed.

Question
Answer
What is an active sheet?
Any one of the types of paper the printer can
process, such as roll paper, a slip sheet, or a
check.
Why the active sheet is
selected?
To select the functions the printer can use. For
example, roll paper requires certain functions
that the other types of paper do not require.
GS ( G function 80 selects the active sheet.
For the following actions, the active sheet will
be selected automatically without being
selected by GS ( G function 80.
• A print sheet will automatically
be the active sheet when a print
sheet selected by ESC c 0.
•
Check will automatically be the
active sheet when FS a 0 (read
check paper) is executed
•
Slip will automatically be the
active sheet when FS a 1 (Load
check paper to print starting
position) is executed.
•
Slip will automatically be the
active sheet when GS ( G
function 48 (Specifies slip as the
paper type and the side to be
printed) is executed.
•
Roll paper is will automatically
be the active sheet when the slip
is ejected by FF (Print and eject
cut sheet) after printing on the
slip.
•
Roll paper is will automatically
be the active sheet when a cut
sheet is release by ESC q is
executed.
•
Roll paper is will automatically
be the active sheet when a check
is ejection by FS a 2 is executed.

Question
Answer
When do you need to select
the active sheet with GS ( G
function 80?
Before image scanning you need to select a
check as the active sheet.
A check is automatically
selected as the active sheet
with FS a 0, read check
paper; however the check is
not selected automatically
by GS ( G function 65
when reading an image of
a check. Why?
The current command, FS a 0 has multiple
functions so that it automatically selects the
active sheet; then reads the MICR; however GS
( G function 65 has only one function so that
there is flexibility of command combination,
which follows the policy of the ESC/POS that
one command has one function.
What is the difference
between GS ( G function
48, select slip as the paper
type and the side of the
sheet to be printed, and
ESC c 0, select paper
type(s) for printing?
Print sheet and print side to be selected are
different. GS ( G function 48 is exclusively for
a slip, selecting surface or back of the sheet,
not for selecting roll paper. After executing FS
a 0, read check paper, even if GS ( G function
48 is executed, the slip will not be ejected;
therefore, it is possible to check the single-pass
processing.
ESC c 0 can select roll paper or the surface of a
slip; however the back of the slip cannot be
selected. After executing FS a 0, read check
paper, if the slip is selected by ESC c 0, the slip
is ejected and the printer will be in the slip
insertion waiting state.
FS a 0, FS a 1, FS a 2 are obsolete commands; therefore, we recommend using other
commands instead of these commands. See following descriptions.
Obsolete command
There are more suitable substitute commands for the following commands. These obsolete commands will
not be supported by future printer models. More suitable substitute commands follow.
GS ( G <Function 60> is a substitute for FS a 0
GS ( G <Function 48> and GS ( G <Function 84> are a substitute for FS a 1
GS ( G <Function 85> is a substitute for FS a 2
GS V is a substitute for ESC i and ESC m
GS r is a substitute for ESC u and ESC v
GS ( C is a substitute for FS g 1 and FS g 2
GS ( L is a substitute for FS p and FS q

Miscellaneous Information in a Q & A Format
The following Q & A will help you understand more about the printer.
Question
Answer
What happens when an ink out occurs?
The printer prints all data in the line being
printed when the ink out signal is received;
then it stops printing.
With two ink cartridges (main color and sub
color), how does the printer work if only
one cartridge is empty?
The printer stops printing. If either one of
the ink cartridges is empty, it is impossible
to continue printing.
If one color is never used for printing, the
color ink isn’t consumed?
No. Even if one color is never used, both ink
head nozzles are cleaned periodically. The
cleaning consumes a small amount of ink.
Disposed ink absorption material is
provided only for the sub color side. if only
the main color is used frequently, might the
capacity of the ink absorption material
exceed its tolerance?
No. If the only the main color is used
frequently, cleaning of the sub color is also
performed, which reduces the sub color ink.
If the sub-color is never used for printing
and all ink is used only by cleaning while
the main color ink is replaced a few times,
there will be enough disposed ink
absorption material capacity until the sub
color ends.
What happens when a pump unit reaches
the end of its life (when a message of pump
unit life end is printed)?
The life of the pump unit is approximately
twice as much as that of the printer; usually
the pump unit will last 10 years.
What is the method of extending the
printing area on a slip in page mode?
You should use the Function 48 of the
GS(P command.
A. Adjust the horizontal offset of page
mode to the edge of your designed
printing area.
B. Choose single color using the parameter

Note:
All values listed above are the printing speed without character modification when the printing is
performed continuously for all columns without cleaning.
Printing speed may be slower, depending on the data transmission speed and the combination of control
commands. If the data transmission speed is slow, the printing becomes intermittent. Therefore, it is
recommended to use high-speed data transmission.

Notes on Using the MICR Reader
❏ Do not install the printer near any magnetic fields, because this may cause MICR reading
errors. (Especially when the printer is used near the display device, the user must check the
recognition rate of the MICR.)
❏ The MICR characters may not be recognized when impact or vibration is applied to the
printer.
❏ Multiple fold checks are not supported.
❏ The personal checks must be flat, without curls, folds, or wrinkles (especially at the edges).
Otherwise, the check may rub against the nozzles and become ink-stained.
❏ Do not insert checks that have clips or staples. These may cause paper jams, MICR reading
errors, and damage to the MICR head.

❏ Let go of the check immediately as soon as the printer starts feeding it. Otherwise, the paper
is not fed straight, causing paper jams and MICR reading errors. Also, do not open any
covers.
Endorsement Mechanism Section (Factory-Installed Option)
The endorsement mechanism enables printing of endorsements as part of a sequence that is

Notes on Using the Endorsement Mechanism
❏ The endorsement mechanism enables printing of endorsements on the back of a personal
check. Do not use paper that is over 101.6 mm {4"} in width. Otherwise, paper may be
jammed.
❏ Do not open any covers while the sequence of check reading and endorsement printing is
processed. Otherwise, the paper is not fed straight, causing paper jams and MICR reading
errors.
❏ Observe the same limitations as for slips for the position of paper holes and the reflection
ratio of the check.
