Safety Instructions
7 Precautions to be followed when handling the printer
Warning
• Do not use the printer if it becomes hot, produces smoke or a strange smell,
etc. as it could start a fire. Immediately switch off the printer and remove both
the AC adaptor and/or battery pack, if installed.
• If any foreign (metal scraps, water, or other fluid) gets inside the printer,
immediately switch off the printer and remove both the AC adaptor and/or
battery pack, if installed. Then contact your service representative.
Failure to do so could result in fire.
Precaution
• Do not put on an unstable surface as it may fall or topple over causing some
injury.
• Do not use it in any of the following locations, otherwise it will malfunction:
– In a car that is exposed to the sun, in any place exposed to direct sunlight,
near a heater etc.
– In a place where the temperature and humidity are very high or low or where
they fluctuate widely.
– In an extremely dusty place
– In a place exposed to water or other fluid
• Do not drop or hit the printer as doing so will damage it or cause it to
malfunction.
• Keep all foreign material out of the printer. This will cause it to malfunction.
• Do not use a volatile fluid (thinner, benzine, etc.) or wet cloth to clean the
printer. If you do, it will be degraded or discolored. Clean it with a dry soft
cloth.
• During printing or when it is in standby status, do not move, shake or hit the
printer. There is a danger that the power will be cut off, losing printing data.
8
7 Precautions to be followed when operating the printer
Warning
• Be extremely careful not to touch the print head or serrated tear bar when
replacing the paper. After printing, the print head can become hot and there is
a danger of it burning your hand. Also, care should be taken when handling the
cutter as it might cut your hand.
Precaution
• If you use any paper other than the designated kind, the print quality will fall
and the service life of the print head (printing unit) will be reduced.
• Do not perform printing and do not push the paper feed button while there is
no paper in the printer. The heat of the print head will deform the platen
(roller) and friction with the platen will damage the print head.
• Do not tap or rub the print head with a sharp or hard object.
• If moisture has condensed on the print head, be sure to wait until it is
completely dry before performing printing. If you print while the print head is
moist, there is a danger of damage to the print head.

Safety Instructions
7 Precautions when using the battery pack
Danger
• Do not use any battery pack other than the specified type.
Using a type other than the specified type may cause an explosion.
• Use only the specialized charger.
• Do not take it apart or modify it.
• Do not short circuit the terminals.
• Do not use, charge, or leave the battery pack near fire, out in the hot sun, or in
any other hot place.
• Do not place it in a fire.
• Do not hit or drop the battery pack.
Precaution
• After charging, do not repeatedly charge it again. (We recommend that after
using it, you remove it from the printer and store it, then charge it the day
before you use it again.)
• When you do not plan to use the printer for a long time, remove the battery
pack from the printer and store it in fully charged condition.
• When carrying a spare battery pack removed from the printer, always carry it in
the protective cover included with the battery pack.
• If the battery pack works for only a short time after it is charged, or if an error
occurs even though it is charged, it may have reached the end of its service life.
Buy a new battery pack.
Dispose of an unnecessary battery pack according to rules in the country
where you are using it.
• If the terminals of the battery pack are dirty, clean them with a soft cloth.
• The battery pack performs a chemical reaction, so use it considering this
characteristic.
– Charge the battery pack where the temperature is in a range from 5°C to
40°C.
– Store it in a dry place where the temperature does not rise. Storing it for a
long time in a hot place will shorten its service life and cause serious selfdischarging.
– Because not using it for a long time may cause self-discharging, charge it
just before using it.
10
7 Precautions when using the charger (optional)
Precaution
• Do not modify the charger nor remove its cabinet.
• Do not damage or modify the power cord. This may cause a short circuit or
accident.
• Do not drop the charger or apply a strong shock to it.
• Use a household AC100-240V power source.
• Be very careful to keep water, metal etc. out of the inside of the battery pack.
• Do not use it in the following places.
– Near a store or place where it is exposed to direct sunlight
– Very humid places, and places where it would be exposed to oily smoke or
steam
– Place where there is violent vibration or an unstable place
• If it is used near a radio or similar appliance, it may cause noise. If this happens
use it further from the radio etc.
• If the charger will not be used for a long time, remove its power plug from the
power outlet and store it.
7 Precautions when using the specialized RS-232C cable and
USB cable
Warning
• When connecting to the printer using a cable, ensure you do cross (short) the
pins or contacts of any of the connectors with the metal parts of the cable
assembly.
Precaution
• Whilst the printer is protected from external damage as much as possible,
there is a danger that excessive static electricity damaging the internal circuits
of the printer. Take care to discharge items touching the printer before
connection or use.
• Do not leave the cable wrapped around the product for a long time. If you do,
there is danger of breakage and discoloration of the cable.

Safety Instructions
7 Precautions when using thermal paper (printing paper)
Precaution
When using thermal printing paper, take the following precautions. Thermal
printing paper becomes discolored or degenerates, resulting in faint printing.
• Do not put printed paper in bright light for a long period.
• Avoid high temperature, humidity, fluids, and sunlight.
• Do not use glue, adhesive, or adhesive tape containing a volatile organic
solvent to retain printed thermal paper by applying it to ground paper.
• When you want to retain the paper for a long time, we recommend that you
either use deterioration-resistant type thermal paper or make a copy on a
copier and retain the copy.
• Do not keep the paper in contact with a PVC film etc. for a long time.
• Avoid ammonia. Keep it away from paper copied on a copier that uses
ammonia.
• Do not let perspiration on your hands or oil touch the printed surface of
thermal printing paper (surface to be printed or surface that has been
printed).
• When the thermal printing paper will be stored, store it in a dark place where
the average temperature is 25°C or less and the humidity is 65% or less.
7 Precautions when installing the printing paper
Precaution
• Begin printing only after you have made sure that the printing paper is straight
where it is ejected from the printing (thermal) head. If it is not straight, the
paper will jam.
• To prevent the paper from being bent as it is fed into the printer, make sure
that the front end of the paper is as shown below.

To prevent the paper from being bent as it is loaded, do not use paper with
its front edge torn or folded. (see Page 12)
When paper is used up during printing
When paper is used up during printing, printing stops and the ERROR LED
flashes red. When this happens, do not turn off the printer power. If you do,
any remaining printing data will be erased.
27
Operating the Printer
Connecting the printer to a PC or other
communication device
It is possible to select one of the following interface methods to receive printing data.
7 Serial interface: PC, PDA, handy terminal
7 USB interface: PC etc. equipped with a USB terminal
7 Infrared interface
• IrDA mode (when shipped from factory): PC, PDA, handy terminal
• IrCZ mode: Handy terminal etc.
7 Wireless (Bluetooth) interface (option): Devices equipped with Bluetooth
Reference
The initial setting (when shipped from factory) is infrared interface (IrDA mode). If it is a
Bluetooth version printer, the default setting is set to Bluetooth.
Connecting the accessory specialized RS-232C cable and turning on the printer power
automatically changes it to a serial interface. (If “valid” is selected with “Cable IF auto
detection”, it changes. But it is invalid if the cable is inserted while power is supplied to
the printer.)
Change the settings in Interface Selection Mode to reset the interface according to the
utilization environment. (see page 42)
When using each interface, it is necessary to install a driver in or to
program the device that is connected to the printer.
28
Connecting the printer to a PC or other communication device
Connecting with the Infrared Interface
Direct the printer’s infrared port directly towards the infrared port of the
device to be linked.
• Data may not be received correctly when transmitted in direct sunlight, under
fluorescent lamps, and in other areas with strong light.
• Data may not be received correctly after the printer has been left for an
extended period in temperatures outside the recommended storage temperature range.
• Transmission distance varies according to the device used and the surrounding conditions, so it may be impossible to establish a connection within the
connection range provided in the specifications. There are devices that
cannot be connected within 10 cm (0.33 feet) of the light receiver.
• A communication error may occur if it is used connected to another infrared
device.
• Transmission can be achieved within a 15°
angle horizontally and vertically up to a
distance of 20 cm (0.66 feet).
• Confirm that there are no obstacles in the
space between the printer and the device
to be connected. Data cannot be
transmitted correctly if any obstructions
are present in this space.

*1: Link off
Function that cancels auto power off, during infrared linking
When IrDA is set, if the OS is Windows, the host PC performs a search (BroadCast) to clarify if there is or
is not an infrared device of some kind within the infrared communication range and a list of the devices is
displayed on the screen.
When the printer is powered by batteries, there may be no response and the names may disappear from
the PC screen because the power turns off during the period set by the power saving time setting.
If this setting is valid, Auto Power Off stops functioning and the host PC no longer overlooks the printer.
*2: Bluetooth mode
The connected device side may request validation. In such a case, set Bluetooth mode to BOND from
Menu setting mode (see page 35), to perform validation. During this operation, the entry of the PIN code
on the printer side is requested. The PIN code is allotted the lowest four columns of the BD address. If Self
printing is performed (see page 33), the BD address is printed, so refer to it to make the entry.
*3: BOND history deletion
When bonding has been done by Bluetooth, five BOND histories are usually stored inside. A device
formerly bonded based on this history can be connected without a PIN code.
If this setting is set to valid, the histories stored inside can be simultaneously erased.
The printer operates as follows.
1) “Valid” in the “Bond history deletion” menu is set and the VuePrint menu is closed. Then printer power
cuts off.
2) When power has been reconnected, the printer forcibly enters BOND history deletion mode and
BOND history is erased. Next printer power is automatically cut off.
3) When the power is turned on again, the BOND history deletion setting returns to its initial setting
“Invalid,” and the printer enters normal mode.

Care and Maintenance
When paper is jammed inside the printer, remove the paper with tweezers etc. Clean dirt and
paper powder from the paper feed roller and the printing head with a cotton applicator. If you
conscientiously take care of it, you will be able to use it with ease.
• When taking care of it, be careful not to touch the cutter teeth. You may
be injured.
• Never bring any hard object in contact with the head. This may result in
damage to the unit.
• The print head becomes very hot. Allow the printer to rest for a short to
protect yourself from burns.
• If any foreign object gets inside the head or the paper feed gear, it may
cause a malfunction.
