1.0 Introduction
The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer is designed for convenience, easy
installation and operation, and dependability. It is capable of printing two-sided
brand/care labels at a rate of up to 12 inches (305mm) per second. Your AVERY
DENNISON SNAP 600 printer allows for quick change-outs of inks, stock, and
label sizes, providing the versatility required to meet most brand/care labeling
needs.
This manual is prepared for the actual printer operator, and is intended to be an
easy-to-use, quick reference guide. It contains procedures for receiving,
handling, set-up, installation, operation, and maintenance of the AVERY
DENNISON SNAP 600 printer.
Please read this section of the manual to familiarize yourself with the printer and
to guide you through the initial receiving and set-up of your new AVERY
DENNISON SNAP 600 printer. Throughout this manual, a system of NOTES,
CAUTIONS, and WARNINGS has been used to quickly identify key information
you need to help ensure your personal safety and to operate the printer properly.
Before you install or use your new AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer, it is
important to review all NOTES, CAUTIONS, and WARNINGS in this manual to
help ensure maximum benefit from your printer. We also strongly suggest that
you watch the 17-minute training video, which will operate in any CD-ROM
drive. You may want to keep the training video with this manual for easy, quick
reference in the future.

attention or insufficient equipment knowledge could cause
either personal injury or damage to the printer.
10
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
2.0 Installation
2.1 Preparing for the installation
2.1.1 AC Power Line
NOTE: AVERY DENNISON requires that the minimum
electrical service be 10 Amps @ 115VAC or 6 Amps @
230VAC. This will allow the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600
printer, PC, and any additional support or service
equipment to be plugged into the same service. It is
highly recommended that the printer and its accessories
be on a dedicated circuit.
The electrical service supplying power to the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600
printer or to peripheral equipment connected to the AVERY DENNISON SNAP
600 printer should meet standard electrical code practices, including proper
grounding and neutrals.
2.1.2 Location Considerations
The printer weighs 45 pounds (20.5 Kg) and requires a table of sufficient quality
and strength to handle this load. The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer
requires an area with the approximate dimensions of 72" wide x 30" deep x 32"
high (1.8 m x 76 cm x 81 cm). The host PC (if used) and any printer options will
increase the required area. AVERY DENNISON recommends using an industrial
type worktable. Refer to Figure 1 below.
The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer is designed for easy operator
accessibility to the printer controls and components. Select your AVERY
DENNISON SNAP 600 printer’s location to meet the following criteria:
1. Choose an area that maintains optimum flow of your product and allows for
the operator’s comfort. Consider the physical demands being placed on the
operator with respect to height of the table on which the printer will be
placed, the amount of space around the printer, and the operator’s
accessibility to the printer. Refer to Figure 1.
2. While AVERY DENNISON has designed the printer to be reasonably quiet,
select an area where repetitious noise from printing and cutting processes is
acceptable.
CAUTION: It is each customer’s responsibility to make
sure that the workstation created for the AVERY
DENNISON SNAP 600 printer meets the recommended
requirements to ensure optimal operation of the printer.
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer

3.0 Operation
3.1 Loading Supplies
Your AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer is designed with both upper and
lower ink supply stations.
The ink arbors have a spring-loaded latch, which self-centers the roll of ink to
ensure smooth tracking through the machine. If you are using supplies based on
the metric system, ensure that the latch on the arbor is gray. If you are using
supplies based on the inch, ensure that the latch on the arbors is black.
The ink cores have splines on their inside surfaces. These splines align with the
grooves in the ink arbors. When installing the ink roll, the splines must align
with the grooves.
3.1.1 Installing Ink to the Top Ink Supply Station
1. Install an empty ink core on the upper ink rewind arbor. It is important that
the core be the same width as the core of the ink being used.
NOTE: The empty ink core should be the same width as
the ink supply roll.
a. Press the latch, rotate the core slightly to align the splines and
grooves, and slide it gently onto the arbor. Release the latch as soon
as the core starts to slide on the arbor.
b. As you slide the core onto the arbor, you will hear a clicking noise as
the latch ratchets onto the core. When the core is centered on the
arbor, it will stop. See Figure 7.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the print head, the ink
supply roll should be ¼ inch (6 mm) wider than the stock.

NOTE: The ink system is designed to rewind one roll of ink
at a time. When the rewind core is full, replace it with an
empty ink core. Do not try to add a second roll to the first
rewind core, since it will not track through the printer
correctly and will result in poor print quality.
2. Remove the plastic packaging around the roll of ink and install it on the ink
supply arbor. Ensure that the leading edge is pointing toward the Stock
Arbor.
NOTE: For best results, leave the ink roll wrapped in
plastic until you are ready to use it in the printer.
3. Open the print roller (See Figure 8).
4. Pull the ink down and to the right, beneath the turn bar, between the upper
print roller and the upper print station, toward the stacker side of the upper
ink rewind arbor.

4. Fasten the ink supply to the rewind core.
a. If you are using a new roll of ink, the leader you are advancing
through the machine already has adhesive on it. Press the leader
onto the rewind core until it sticks to the core.
b. If you are installing a partially used roll of ink, you must first attach a
small piece of transparent tape to the leading end of the ink roll.
Then, tape the end to the ink on the rewind core.
5. Wind the core for several turns to make sure the ink tracks flat as it is pulled
through the printer.
6. To remove an ink core from the arbor, depress the latch and slide the core
from the arbor. Save the empty core to be used as the next rewind core.

3.1.2 Installing Ink to the Bottom Ink Supply Station
Installing Ink on the Bottom Print Station is done in the same way as the Top
Print Station, except that the ink runs up over the Turnbar, across the printhead
to the rewind arbor.
3.1.3 Loading the Stock
Before loading a roll of stock, you will need to be familiar with the following
parts of the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer (Refer to Figures 9 and 10).
The Stock Arbor is designed to clamp the core of the stock supply rolls to hold
them in place during printing operations. By rotating the outer knob on the
stock arbor, you can adjust for roll widths ranging in size from ½ inch - 2 ¼
inches (12.7 mm – 57.2 mm). This helps keep the stock straight while it moves to
the center of the print head. To function properly, the stock roll must be wound
firmly and centered on the core with no telescoping of the roll. You do not need
to make any other adjustments.
The Stock or Web Guide is located between the Stock Arbor and Lower Print
Station and guides the stock through the machine toward the print head. The
black knob located above the web guide controls the width of the guides.
Turning the knob clockwise will widen the web guides, while counterclockwise
turns will narrow the web guides.
The Upper and Lower Print Stations on the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600
printer are stationary. The rollers swing open and closed for threading and
printing. These rollers are held in position for printing with latches on both the
inside and outside end of the rollers.
NOTE: If you are printing two-sided labels, both print
rollers must be closed in order for the printer to operate.
If a two-sided label design is sent to the printer and the
lower print roller is open, the Error LED will light up and
the printer will stop. If you are printing single-sided
labels, the lower print roller should remain open so the ink
rolls will not rotate.
The Stock Feed is the assembly located in front of the knife. The Feed has a knob,
which is used to manually advance the material through the knife, the nip roller,
and into the stacker. (See figure 10)
New rolls of Supply Stock are sealed and packaged individually. When you are
ready to load the stock, remove the packaging and follow the steps below.
1. Remove the transparent tape holding the end of the supply stock to the outer
part of the roll. To avoid damaging the rollers or print heads, use scissors to
cut off any portion of the supply stock that has adhesive on it.
2. Rotate the knob counterclockwise to retract the ”fingers.”
25
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
3. To install the stock supply roll, begin with the leading end at the top of the
roll.
4. Slide the stock supply roll onto the Stock Arbor (see Figure 9).
5. Rotate the knob counter-clockwise quickly to extend the retraction fingers
that hold the supply roll in place.
6. With both print rollers in the open position, pull the stock from the top of the
supply roll, and over the Decurler Roller.

through the knife and nip rollers and into the stacker (until it extends about
½ inch or 10 mm - 15 mm from the rollers).
10. If the stock will not advance through the knife, refer to Section 5.4.2, Knife
Home Position Adjustment.
11. Close the upper and lower print rollers.
12. Rotate the stock web guide knob to align it to the stock width.

3.1.4 Butt Splice
CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print head, do not
use butt splices.
The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer is designed to allow for fast, frequent
changing and loading of stock and supplies. On this model it is quicker to rethread the stock than to use a butt splice.
3.2 Sending a Print Job to the Printer
In order to print labels, you must send a Print Job to the printer. The Print Job
tells the printer what label to print, what information to print on the label, and
how many labels to print.
How a Print Job gets to the printer depends on how your company system is set
up. You may be using AVERY DENNISON’s label design program PCMate
Platinum, or you may be using a special application on a PC or a mainframe.
Consult your supervisor on how your company sends Print Jobs.

3.3 Printing Labels
3.3.1 The Control Panel
The Control Panel on your AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer is located at
the top of the machine. Figure 11 shows the control buttons and lights displayed
on the printer. The buttons allow you to control the printer, and the lights
indicate the status of the printer.
•
The Start Button starts and stops printing. If there are labels ready to print,
pressing the Start Button starts printing. If the printer is running, pressing
the Start Button stops printing.
•
The Ready Light indicates the printer has been powered up, completed its
diagnostics, and is ready to accept Print Jobs.
•
The Data Light indicates you have sent a Print Job to the printer and it is
ready to print.
•
The Supply Light indicates that either the stock or ink supply has run out
and needs reloading, or the stacker is full. It may also come on if you have
an accessory attached and there is a problem with it.
•
The Error Light indicates a problem exists somewhere in the printer.
•
If the printer is not printing, pressing the Voice Button will play a message
describing the status of the printer. If the printer is printing, pressing the
Voice Button will stop printing.
Figure 11. Control Panel
28
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
3.3.2 Printing
Once a print job has been sent to the printer, the Data light will come on. You
can then press the Start Button to start printing.
When printing starts, the stacker will move the platform up and down to
position it in the correct position. Then the printer will start printing labels.
As the printer prints, the cut labels will drop onto the top of the stack. As the
stack grows, the stacker platform moves down so that the top of the stack stays
in the same position.
3.3.2.1 Handling the Leader
When you start printing for the first time, or after some errors, the printer will
create a leader. The leader is a longer piece of material that may be blank or may
have some partially printed labels. These labels are not usable and are not part
of the print job.
When the printer creates a leader, grab it as it comes out of the nip rollers and
pull it out of the stacker when the printer does the first cut. (If you are not using
the stacker, or you are using some other accessory such as a Rewinder or Looper,
you may need to handle the leader differently.)
3.3.3 Errors
If the printer encounters a problem during printing, it will stop printing and
either the Supply or Error light will come on. The Supply light means that there
is a problem with either the ink or the stock, or the stacker is full. The error light
means that there is some other problem with the printer.
There are three ways to determine what the problem is:
1. Press the Voice button. A message will play that describes the problem.
2. The problem will be displayed in the Printer Status box on the Virtual
Control Panel in PCMate Platinum. See section 8.0 for a description of the
Virtual Control Panel.
3. The problem will be displayed on the Remote Front Panel option, if it is
installed. See section 7.0 for a description of the Remote Front Panel.
Correct the problem and press the Start Button to start printing again.
NOTE: If the error condition no longer exists, the printer
will start. It is not necessary to press the Start button
twice as is required with previous AVERY DENNISON
printer models. If the error continues to recur, contact
your local AVERY DENNISON representative.
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
29
3.3.4 End of Day
When the printer finishes printing all the print jobs that have been sent, it will
stop with a few labels left to print. This allows you to send another next print job
and print it without wasting stock and ink. The Data light will flash to indicate
this condition.
When this occurs, you may send another print job. The printer will start up
automatically.
If you are finished for the day or you need to change stock or ink for the next
print job, press the Start Button. The printer will print the last few labels of the
last print job. You can then turn off the printer or change the stock and ink for
the next print job.
3.3.5 Clearing Print Jobs
If you have sent print jobs to the printer and do not want to print the labels, press
and hold both the Start/Stop and Voice buttons simultaneously. After about 2
seconds, the printer will say “Clearing Current Batch.” If there is only one print
job, the Data light will go out.
If there are more than one print job and you only want to clear the current one,
release the buttons.
If there are more than one print job and you want to clear them all, continue to
hold the buttons until the printer says, “Clearing All Batches.”
3.3.6 Using Pre-Printed Stock
When using pre-printed stock, the printer must detect a sense mark on the stock
in order to print in the proper place. There are five methods for detecting the
sense mark - two standard methods and three optional methods.
•
The AVERY DENNISON 600 printer has two through-hole sensors
standard with each printer. One sensor is mounted in the web guides
and will detect a hole or slot on the inside edge of the stock. This system
moves with the web guides so it is necessary for the web guides to be
properly adjusted. The other sensor will detect a hole or slot centered on
the stock. Choosing between these systems is controlled by a toggle
switch located on the right end of the printer between the printer and the
stacker. Pressing the top of the switch will select the edge sensor, and
pressing the bottom of the switch will select the center sensor.
•
A top reflective sensor is available as an option. This sensor is fixed in
the center of the left web guide shaft and will detect a black sense mark
printed on the top of either tape or tag stock.
•
A bottom reflective sensor is available as an option. This is installed in a
bracket assembly mounted directly below the left web guide roller and is
30
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
capable of traversing the entire width of the stock and will detect a black
sense mark on either tape or tag stock.
•
Two contrast sensors are also available as options. Both are
dimensionally identical and use a fiber-optic pickup tube mounted in the
up-right frame with the tip protruding into a slot in the left web guide
shaft. The first is a contrast sensor for more easily detected sense marks.
The second is a color/contrast sensor for colored and difficult to detect
sense marks.
•
The fiber-optic pickup tube is moveable and will detect sense marks
across the entire width of the supply. Refer to appendix 7 for
instructions on teaching these sensors.
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
31
3.3.6.1 Selecting the Sensor
The type of sensor to be used can be selected in one of two ways. First, the
sensor type can be selected as part of the format (see the PCMate Platinum
manual or the PCL manual for details).
The sensor type that is selected in the format can be overridden using the Virtual
Control Panel (see section 8.0) or the Remote Front Panel (see section 7.0). If the
Format sensor type is selected, the printer will use the sensor specified in the
format. If one of the other sensor types is selected, the printer will use that
sensor and ignore the selection in the format.
The printer does not know if the optional sensors are
installed. If one of these sensors is selected but not
installed, the printer will not operate properly.
3.3.6.2 Aligning the Stock to the Sensor
In order to work properly, the stock must be aligned to the sensor before starting
to print. To do this, close one or both print-head rollers (depending on whether
the label is single- or double-sided) and use the Auxiliary Feed knob until the
sense mark is just to the left of the sensor. Then rotate the ink rewind arbors to
take up any slack and press the Start Button.
This alignment must be done anytime the printer would
normally create a leader. This will happen after most
errors. Do not align the stock after a normal stop or a
stacker full.
3.3.7 Feeding the stock
To feed the stock, press and hold the Start button. After a short delay, the printer
will feed stock though the printer. To stop the feed, release the Start button.
If you are in the middle of printing a batch, feeding the
stock will cause the printed labels between the printhead
and the knife to feed through without cutting. These
labels will be re-printed the next time you start printing.
The batch quantity will be correct.
3.4 Option Menu System

3.4.1 Running Test Labels
Your AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer offers you two Test Patterns to run
before you proceed to production.
Test Pattern 1, consisting of a solid line down the middle on the front and back
of the label and a solid line across the web that is exactly 1” from the cut. This
test pattern is helpful in adjusting your print position to compensate for
mechanical tolerances in the printer.
Test Pattern 2 more closely resembles an actual label and can be used to make
adjustments to the printhead pressure and contrast (see sections 4.1.1 and 4.1.2).
When you have determined which Test Pattern you wish to operate, use the
appropriate procedure.
NOTE: The printer is set up to print the selected label test
format in a very large quantity. You must manually start
and stop the printing to make any necessary adjustments
and to end the test run.

4.0 Making Adjustments
4.1 Print Head Adjustments
The two print stations on the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer are
stationary. The print rollers swing open for loading stock and ink and are closed
when the machine is printing. The rollers are held in the print position with a
latch on both the inside and outside end of the rollers.
When printing labels, there are two adjustments you may need to make to the
print stations: (1) adjust the print head pressure, and (2) adjust the contrast,
which controls print darkness (density).
4.1.1 Adjusting Print Head Pressure
Each print head has two print head pressure buttons, (see Figure 13).
To change the print head pressure settings, follow the steps listed below.
CAUTION: For extended print head life, use the lighter
print pressure setting whenever possible.
1. To decrease print head pressure, use a flat blade screwdriver, depress the
button and to turn both buttons ¼ turn (90 degrees) counterclockwise until
they are in the upper position.
2. To increase print head pressure, use the flat blade screwdriver, depress the
button and to turn each of the buttons clockwise until they are in the lower
position.
CAUTION: Ensure that both buttons on the print head are
in the same position.
The buttons will not rotate all the way around, only 90 degrees back and forth to
the desired setting.

Figure 13. Print Head Components
4.1.2 Adjusting Density (Darkness)
The contrast knob for adjusting print density (darkness) is located between the
two print head pressure buttons (see Figure 13). You may adjust the contrast
knob while printing labels.
The nominal contrast setting is in the center of the rotation.
1. To increase print density, rotate the contrast knob clockwise.
2. To decrease print density, rotate the contrast knob counterclockwise.
You can manually rotate the contrast knob 270 degrees. At maximum value, the
print will not become any darker. In fact, it may actually begin to get lighter.
4.2 Adjusting the Stacker
The stacker on your AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer is adjustable in four
ways: the position of the stacker on the mounting pins, the height of the stack,
the angle at which labels are accumulated in the stack, and the angle of the
platform. Different settings of these adjustments may be needed depending on
the length and width of the labels being printed and the material being used.
There are no incorrect settings, only adjustments that allow the stacker to better
accommodate the size and type of material used for the label being printed and
stacked. You will soon learn the settings that work best for your labels.
40
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
4.2.1 Stacker Position
The stacker slides in and out on the mounting pins. This allows for proper
positioning of the stacker for the width of the label you are printing. The stacker
should be set so that the back wall of the stacker is just behind the back end of
the label where it comes out of the nip rollers.
The stacker mount bracket has a thumbscrew that locks the stacker in position
and also stiffens the mounting.
Adjusting the stacker angle (see section 4.2.3) will move the position of the back
wall. If you adjust the stacker angle, be sure to readjust the stacker position.
4.2.2 Toggle Switch
The stacker has two electronic sensors that set where the top of the stack is.
Depending on the size of the label to be collected on the stacker, use the toggle
switch to select from the two different electronic sensors (See Figure 5 and 11).
1. Determine the size of label to be printed.
a. For short feeds ranging from 1 - 2 inches (25 mm – 51 mm), use the
upper sensor.
b. For long feed and/or woven labels, use the lower sensor.
2. Depress the top portion of the toggle switch to use the upper sensor.
3. Depress the bottom portion of the toggle switch to use the lower sensor.
4.2.3 Stacker Angle
The angle of the stacker is adjustable, and can be tipped out a maximum of 20
degrees at the bottom from the vertical position shown in Figure 5. Since there is
no single stacker angle that is best for all label lengths and types of materials, you
can adjust the stacker angle to best accommodate each run.
1. When the feed is 2 inches (51 mm) or longer, or when using coated tapes, the
stacker works well with the bottom tipped out.
2. When using woven tapes, the stacker should be vertical or almost vertical.

4.2.4 Platform
The platform angle can be adjusted in two different locations to alter the angle at
which labels are stacked and stopped.
1. Pull the spring loaded Adjustment Pin and move the platform from a
horizontal to a backwards angle approximately 20 degrees up on the outer
end of the platform.
a. For satin labels, use the lower position.
b. For coated labels, and short feed labels, elevate the outer end.
The label stop helps position the labels in the stack. The label stop is magnetic.
Follow these steps to adjust the position of the label stop.
2. Place a cut label on the stacker platform and slide it into the back corner.
3. Move the label stop to within 1/8 inch (3 mm) of the end of the label.

4.3 Print and Cut Adjustments
The print and cut adjustments allow you to compensate for mechanical
tolerances in the printer so that the print is positioned correctly and the cut
occurs at the right place.
4.3.1 Cut Adjust
NOTE: The cut adjust should only be made when using preprinted stock (see section 3.3.6). If the cut adjust is changed
when you are using blank stock, the print will appear to move
on the label.
If you use pre-printed stock, do the cut adjust using the preprinted stock and then do the print adjust using either preprinted or blank stock.
If you never use pre-printed stock, set the cut adjust to zero.
The cut adjust allows you to adjust the cut position so that it cuts in the right
place with relation to the sense mark on pre-printed stock.
The cut adjust may be made two ways: using the Virtual Control Panel (sec. 8.0)
in PCMate Platinum, or using the Remote Front Panel (sec 7.0). In the Virtual
Control Panel, the cut adjust is found on the Options tab. On the Remote Front
Panel, the cut adjust is found under the Print/Cut Adjust menu item.
When the cut adjust is set correctly, the printer will cut the label at the leading
edge of the sense mark. If the cut is not in the right place, increase the cut adjust
value to move the cut to the right (looking at the printer) or decrease the value to
move the cut to the left. Each step is 0.003”/0.076mm.
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
43
4.3.2 Print Adjust
The print adjust allows you to move the print with relation to the cut. There are
two print adjusts, one for the top print station and one for the bottom print
station.
The print adjust may be made two ways: using the Virtual Control Panel (section
8.0) in PCMate Platinum, or using the Remote Front Panel (section 7.0). In the
Virtual Control Panel, the print adjust is found on the Options tab. On the
Remote Front Panel, the print adjust is found under the Print/Cut Adjust menu
item.
The best way to set the print adjust is to use Test Pattern 1 (see section 3.4.1). The
test pattern has a line printed across the stock that is 1” from the cut. Run a few
labels and measure the distance from the cut to the line. Then increase the print
adjust value to move the print to the right, or decrease the print adjust value to
move the print to the left. Each step is 0.003”/0/076mm. Repeat until the line is
in the correct place.
NOTE: It is common practice to use the print and cut adjusts
to “fine-tune” a format. If you do this, you will have to do it for
each format that you use. A better approach is to correct any
print position problems in the format, and to use the Sense To
Cut option to move the cut if necessary. Refer to the PCMate
Platinum manual for details.
4.4 Printer Features
The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer has many features that can be

User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
45
The available choices are:
•
Format – use the print speed specified in the format. If the print speed
does not exist in the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer, it will use
the closest print speed that is not greater. For example, if the format was
designed for a 676 printer and calls for 5 ips, the AVERY DENNISON
SNAP 600 printer will use 4.5 ips.
•
Translate – uses the corresponding speed from the printer specified in the
format. For example, if the format was designed for a 676 printer and
called for 5 ips (the third speed in the printer’s speed list of 3, 4, and 5
ips), the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer would use 6 ips, which is
the second speed in its speed list of 4.5, 6, 7, 10 and 12 ips.
•
4.5, 6, 7, 10 or 12 – selects the desired print speed.
4.4.5 Selecting the Flagging Mode
This selection allows you override the flagging mode specified in the format. It
is set in the same way as the Print Speed.
The available selections are:
•
Format – uses the flagging mode specified in the format
•
Side-step – This selection is for the High Volume Stacker, which is not
available for the AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer. Do not select
this.
•
Disabled – Disables flagging. No flagging will be done.
4.4.6 Selecting the Sense Mark Type
This selection allows you to override the sense mark type (none, top through
hole or bottom reflective) selected in the format. Its main purpose is to allow you
to activate the optional Contrast Sensor, since older formats or formats for other
AVERY DENNISON printers will not have the Contrast Sensor type.
This option is set in the same way as Print Speed.
The available selections are:
•
Format – use the sense mark type specified in the format
•
Top Hole Sensor, Bottom Reflective, Contrast – selects the sensor type
•
Disabled – ignores the sense mark. This is useful when designing a
format using blank stock to avoid wasting the more expensive preprinted stock.
46
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
The printer does not know whether the Bottom Reflective
or Contrast Sensor is installed. If you select a sensor type
that is not installed, the printer will not print properly.
4.4.7 Setting the Default Transfer Type
The transfer type specifies the type of stock and ink that is being used. For
example, transfer type 97 is 4800TWT fabric with CT1111 ink. The transfer type
tells the printer how much energy is needed to print when using that stock and
ink. See Appendix 2 for a list of available transfer types.
It is highly recommended that the transfer type be specified in the format.
However, if a transfer type is not specified in the format, the printer uses the
default transfer type.
PCMate Platinum always includes the transfer type in the
format. If you are using PCMate Platinum, you do not
need to specify a default transfer type.
The default transfer type is selected the same way as Print Speed. To change the
value on the Remote Front Panel, use the Yes and No keys to set the value, then
press the Enter key to accept it.
4.4.8 Viewing the Life Counts
The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer maintains a count of the total
number of labels printed, and the total number of inches of material. Also, there
is a resettable label counter.
In the Virtual Control Panel, the Life Counts can be found in the Life
Counts/Software Version tab. To reset the resettable label counter, click on the
Reset button.
On the Remote Front Panel, the life counts are found under the Life
Counts/Version menu. When displaying the resettable counter, press the Enter
key to reset the counter.

5.0 Maintenance
5.1 Print Head Cleaning and Handling
NOTE: AVERY DENNISON recommends cleaning print
heads.
1. With alcohol and a cotton pad or cloth every 2-4 hours
of continuous usage;
2. With alcohol and Velcro cleaning pads after 8 hours of
use.
Print heads are extremely sensitive and can be easily damaged, if not cleaned
regularly and handled properly. To help prolong print head life and ensure
excellent print quality, AVERY DENNISON recommends the following cleaning
schedule.
•
After two to four hours of continuous usage, wipe the print heads with
alcohol and a cotton pad or cloth.
•
After eight hours of continuous operation, a more vigorous cleaning is
required. Use alcohol and a Velcro cleaning pad, such as those supplied with
each new printhead.
5.1.1 Handling Techniques
Static discharge can easily damage thermal print heads. To avoid a static
discharge, follow these procedures.
1. Keep all print heads in their original anti-static bags until they are ready to
be installed in the printer.
2. Wear an anti-static wrist strap to prevent static discharge from your body
into the printer, when working with a print head. Wear anti-static gloves at
all times when handling print heads to prevent oils on your hands from
contaminating the print head. The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer
optional spare parts kit contains an anti-static wrist strap and gloves.
a. If your company has not purchased the spare parts kit, buy the antistatic wrist strap at your local electronics store.
b. Extra anti-static gloves can be ordered from AVERY DENNISON.
c.
If an anti-static glove is not available, thoroughly wash and dry your
hands before handling the print head.
3. Do not touch any terminals extending from the print head or the print line.
CAUTION: Never remove the print head from the printer
except to replace it.

9.0 Upgrading the Printer Software
9.1 Introduction
The AVERY DENNISON SNAP 600 printer software can be updated
electronically. Software upgrades are distributed as a single file called the
upgrade or UPG file. PCMate Platinum will take the UPG file and automatically
upgrade the printer. Once the upgrade process is started, no other action is
required.
9.2 What is Needed
The upgrade can only be performed by PCMate Platinum. Therefore, you must
have a Microsoft PC running PCMate Platinum to upgrade the printer software.
See Section 2.1.3 for the minimum requirements to run PCMate Platinum.
9.3 Getting the UPG file
9.3.1 Using SpecStar to get the UPG file
The easiest way to get the upgrade file is through SpecStar. (Contact your
AVERY DENNISON Sales representative for information about SpecStar). If you
have a SpecStar account, contact your SpecStar Coordinator and request that an
upgrade be scheduled for your account. Once this is done, log onto SpecStar,
select In Plant, then Retrieve Updates. The upgrade file will be automatically put
on your PC, and the next time you start up PCMate Platinum, it will offer to
upgrade the printer.
9.3.2 Ordering the UPG file on CD
You can order the upgrade file on CD. Contact Customer Service and order part
number 05800327. When you receive the CD, copy the UPG file on the CD to the
C:\D2Comm\Control folder on the PC that is connected to the printer. The next
time you start PCMate Platinum, it will offer to upgrade the printer.
9.4 Getting Ready to Upgrade the Printer
In order to perform the upgrade, the printer must be turned on and connected to
PCMate Platinum. Refer to the PCMate Platinum manual for instructions on
connecting the printer.

If you have more than one printer connected to the PC,
they will all show in this window. If you leave the Upgrade
Schedule box at Upgrade Now (see below), all the printers
will be upgraded, one at a time.
In the box under Upgrade Schedule, it will say Upgrade Now. If you click on the
box, a drop down list will offer the following choices:
-
Upgrade Now – this will cause the printer to be upgraded when
you click on the Start Upgrade button.
-
Upgrade Later – This choice will skip the upgrade for that
printer, but keep the upgrade file. The next time you start
PCMate Platinum, the upgrade will be offered again. This allows
you to skip the upgrade until later.
-
Remove Upgrade – If you select this option, the printer will not
be upgraded, and the upgrade file will be deleted.
64
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
To start the upgrade, click on the Start Upgrade button. No further action is
required until the upgrade process is complete.
The upgrade process can take quite a while. If the
process is interrupted, the printer will attempt to revert to
the last revision. If it fails, it will revert to a safe version. If
this occurs, it will be necessary to redo the upgrade.
The following window will appear.
The following description of the upgrade process is
accurate as of this writing. However, changes may be
made to improve the process. It is important to allow the
process to finish.
During the first part of the upgrade process, PCMate Platinum sends the
necessary files to the printer. This screen allows you to monitor the progress of
the file transfer. The top progress bar shows the file being sent, while the bottom
bar shows the overall progress.
Once all the files have been transferred to the printer, the printer must perform
its upgrade. The following window will appear.
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer

10.5 Printer Errors
Printer errors are indicated by either the Supply or Error light being on.
When the Supply light is on, the printer supplies (stock or ink) require attention.
Generally, this means the stock or one of the ink rolls is empty, or the stacker is
full.
If the Error light is on, some condition occurred that would not allow the printer
to continue printing.
Whenever either the Supply or Error light is on, pressing the Voice button will
play a message describing the problem. If you are using PCMate Platinum, an
error message will be displayed in the Printer Status box of the Virtual Front
Panel, or if you have a Remote Front Panel, the error message will be shown on
the display.
The table below shows all of the printer error messages, along with a description
of the problem and some possible solutions.

STACKER SENSOR ERROR
Description
The knife did not complete the cut properly, or the
knife could not initialize properly. Try again. If this
happens frequently or continuously, the knife needs
service
The stacker is full. Remove all labels from the
stacker. If this error occurs when there are no labels
on the stacker, the stacker requires service.
This error occurs when the stacker tries to position
the platform before printing. The platform position
sensor did not respond as expected. This is usually
caused by labels blocking the sensor. Remove all
labels from the platform and try again. If the error
still occurs, the stacker requires service.
The bottom print station roller must be open to print a
single-sided format. This eliminates the need to
install ink on the unused station. If this error occurs
when the bottom station roller is open, the head open
sensor is not working.
This error indicates that the upper or lower printhead
temperature is out of normal range. This is generally
caused by a disconnected printhead. Check the
printhead connections. If the error still occurs,
change the printhead. If the error still occurs, replace
the printhead cable. If the error still occurs, replace
the MCB.

Description
These are internal software errors. If one of them
occurs, clear the error and continue. If the error
continues to occur, report the error and the
circumstances that cause it to AVERY DENNISON
Service. These errors are caused by errors in the
software and are not caused by hardware failures.
These are internal errors similar to the ones above.
However, these errors will require power cycling the
printer. If the error continues to occur, report the
error and the circumstances that cause it to AVERY
DENNISON Service.
This error indicates that the label is shorter than the
minimum length for the selected print speed. Refer
to the Printer Specifications for minimum label
lengths. (Minimum label lengths are different for the
Sonic Knife. Refer to the Sonic Knife manual.) To
run and cut the label, you must either make the label
longer or reduce the print speed.
This error indicates the stock supply roll is empty. If
the stock supply roll is not empty, make sure the
supply core is firmly held by the arbor clamp.
If this error continues to occur, remove the stock roll
and press the Start button (the Ready light must be
on). The stock arbor should spin counter-clockwise
briefly. If it doesn’t, the motor or MCB is defective. If
it spins and you continue to get the error after reinstalling the stock roll, the MCB is defective.

Description
This error indicates that the ink on the specified print
station is either missing or broken, or the supply roll
is empty.
If this error continues to occur even though the ink
supply rolls are properly installed, remove the ink
rolls and press the Start button. The unwind (supply)
arbor should spin counter-clockwise and the rewind
(take-up) arbor should spin clockwise briefly. If one
or both of the motors does not spin, the motor(s) or
MCB are defective. If both motors spin, install a new
ink roll. If the error continues to occur with the new
ink roll, the MCB is defective.
This error indicates that either the upper or lower
platen roller is open. Close the roller. If the error
continues to occur when the roller is closed, check
the roller open sensor.
The format specifies a sense mark, but no sense
mark was found. Possible causes are misalignment
of the sensor to the sense mark or incompatibility of
the sense mark and the sensor type. Another
possible cause is a mismatch between the label
length that is set in the format with the actual
distance between sense marks on the stock.
The printer continuously monitors the temperature of
the printhead to ensure it doesn’t overheat and
damage the printhead. When the printhead
temperature reaches a pre-set limit, the printer will
stop with this error. Wait for the error light to go out
and continue printing. However, it is likely that the
error will happen again. Possible solutions are to
reduce the print speed or to reduce the amount of
copy on the label.
If this error happens when the printer is first turned
on or does not clear itself within a few minutes, the
printhead or MCB may be defective.
This indicates that the bar code verifier found a bad
bar code. The most likely cause is a print quality
problem such as an ink wrinkle or a dot out on the
printhead. If this error happens on every label, check
the printhead for dots out. If this error happens often,
but not every label, check the bar code minimum
height requirement or lower the ANSI grade.
This error indicates that the host computer sent more
data than the printer can handle. This error is
generally caused by a mismatch in the serial protocol
setting (XON/XOFF or RTS/CTS) between the printer
and the host, or a cable that does not have the
RTS/CTS lines.
The number of fields on the label exceeds the
maximum number allowed.
The printer checks to make sure the software
versions within the printer are compatible. This error
indicates that the versions are not compatible.
Upgrade to the latest operating system software.

Description
These errors are all related to identification devices
in the printer or peripherals that are used to read the
printer configuration. If one of these errors continues
to occur after a power cycle, disconnect all
peripherals (stacker, sonic knife, etc.). If the problem
still occurs, replace the Frame ID memory. If it still
occurs, replace the MCB.
If disconnecting the peripherals fixes the problem, reconnect one at a time to determine which one is
causing the problem, then replace the printer
interface harness.
This error is related to the Security Batch Count
feature. It indicates that the Batch Count queue is
full, which should never happen. The only way to
recover from this is to reset the MCB by removing the
battery on the MCB with the power off, then replacing
it. This will also reset all the printer settings (print
and cut adjust, baud rate, cutter enable, etc.) to their
default values.

8. Programming the Contrast Sensors
There are two optional contrast sensors available for the SNAP 600 printer. 590011 is the
standard contrast sensor. It works well in most situations where there is significant contrast
between the material background and the sense mark. In situations where there is less
contrast between the material and the sense mark, or the material and sense mark are of
similar colors, the 590014 Color Contrast Sensor may be required.
Both sensors have to be “taught” the difference between the material background and the
sense mark. The procedures are similar, and are described below.
Programming the 590011 Contrast Sensor
The figure below shows the control panel for the 580011 Contrast Sensor. The sensor can
detect a light sense mark on dark material (L) or a dark sense mark on light material (D). In
each mode, the control switch can be set to RUN or TEACH.
To teach the sensor, thread the printer with the stock to be used. Position the material so that
a sense mark is just to the left of the sensor position. Adjust the sensor position across the
web so that the sensor lines up with the sense mark.
Set the control switch on the sensor to the TEACH position. If the material has a light sense
mark on dark material, set the switch to TEACH L. If the material has a dark sense mark on
light material, set the switch to TEACH D.
Press and hold the TEACH button while using the stock advance knob to move the sense
mark under and past the sensor.
104
User’s Manual—SNAP™ 600 Printer
Make sure that the stock is tight against the web guide. The
best way to do this is to press the TEACH button with the left
index finger, while applying back tension to the supply roll
with the left thumb. This ensures that the stock is in the same
position that it will be when the printer is running.
Release the TEACH button. If the Q light flashes rapidly, the sensor did not program
correctly. If the process fails repeatedly, the sensor may not be lined up correctly with the
sense mark, or there may not be enough contrast between the background and the sense mark.
Move the material so that the sense mark moves back and forth under the sensor. The Q light
on the sensor should flash when the sense mark passes under the sensor.
Move the configuration switch to either the RUN L or RUN D position, depending on the
sense mark.
Programming the 580014 Color Contrast Sensor
The figure below shows the control panel for the 580014 Color Contrast Sensor. The
configuration switch has three positions:
Q1 – Teaching mode
Run – Run mode
Run Delay – Do not use
To teach the sensor, thread the printer with the stock to be used. Position the material so that
a sense mark is just to the left of the sensor position. Adjust the sensor position across the
web so that the sensor lines up with the sense mark.
Set the control switch on the sensor to the Q1 position. Press and hold the TEACH button
while using the stock advance knob to move the sense mark under and past the sensor.
