Troubleshooting
What to do when a part of the print data is missing
Dragging a text field or frame field with the mouse to resize it can cause data to be missing when printed, even though the data looks normal on the
display screen. If this happens, use the mouse to slightly change the size of the character field or frame field.
Should the data in a text field continue to be missing after you change the size of the field to correct the problem, execute the [Settings] menu’s [Font]
command and specify the point size of the text. Next, try printing again, without changing the size of the field.
If the above procedure does not correct the problem for a text field, try reducing the point size of the text. If characters are missing at the ends of the
text field, try inserting margins at the ends.
Communication Errors
Check the following points whenever a communication error occurs.
• Make sure that the communication cable is securely connected to the EZ-LABEL PRINTER’s connector. Firmly but gently press on the connector
until it snaps into place.
• When using a personal computer with internal modem, check to make sure that COM port number assigned to the EZ-LABEL PRINTER is different
from that assigned to the internal modem.
• Make sure that the driver of another peripheral (such as a tablet) is not occupying the serial port.
Check the following points whenever the message ”Specified port does not exist.” appears.
• Is the COM port number correct?
• Is the serial port enabled by the BIOS setting?
Hints for Producing Output wider than the Tape Width
When your layout is wider than the tape loaded in the KL-8100, you can output it on multiple pieces of tape and then assembly the printed pieces into a
final large layout.
Example: To print the following layout on 18mm wide tape
1. Use the free setting layout dialog box to specify a tape width of 18mm and 3 for the number of pieces.
• See ”Free Setting” on page E-14 for details.
2. Layout the tape.
3. Print the tape.
• After the three pieces of tape are printed, assemble them to produce the 54mm wide layout shown in the example above.
Out of Memory when Importing a Bitmap or Other Graphic File, or when Printing Graphics
The message ”Not enough memory!” may appear when importing a bit map or other graphic file data into a graphic field, or when you try to print a
layout that includes a graphic field. This is probably due to either of the two following causes.
1. Insufficient computer memory. Try closing other applications that might be running and try again.
2. Windows 3.1 display driver problem. This problem does not occur with most newer display drivers, but it can be a problem with older versions.
Contact the manufacturer of your computer for details.
”Specified port does not exist.” message
• First try changing to another COM port.
• If this does not work check your BIOS settings to make sure that the communication ports are not disabled. Try connecting an external modem or
other device and see if it operates normally.
• If you are using Windows 95, you can check the COM port status with Device Manager, which is located under System in the Control Panel. Check
whether the ports (COM/LPT) include information for a communication port (COM1)
Important!
• BIOS settings are very critical and changing them can have unforeseen affects on your system. Contact the manufacturer of your computer
before trying to change BIOS settings.
Imported Bitmaps and Other Graphics are Blacked Out when Printed
The resolution of the bitmap data may be too high. Try using the graphic selection and editing screen to apply a mask pattern to correct the problem.
Additional and Supplementary Information
Editing and Printing Non-standard Text Layouts
This application provides you with such non-standard text layouts as: [Arch], [Wave], [Squeeze], [Balloon], and [Path].
Of these, arch and wave may result in the character spacing of printed text being different from that of displayed text. Because of this, it is
recommended that you check the character spacing by enlarging the view on the screen 400% before printing it.
Dithering
About the [Dithering] button
This application lets you select between ordered dithering and error diffusion to produce pseudo halftone images from imported color and grayscale
data. Note, however, that clicking the [Edit...] button to perform data editing instantly converts data to monochrome data, so you cannot perform
dithering on graphics that have been edited. All of this means that if you plan to perform both dithering and editing on color data or grayscale data, you
should first perform the dithering and then edit the data.
Performing Error Diffusion on Background Graphics
The error diffusion dithering algorithm results in a loss of data density at right and bottom edges. Because of this, the line between a repeated graphics
pattern (such as background graphic data) will be visible if the graphics have been dithered using error diffusion.
Arch, Wave, and other Non-standard Text Layout
The displayed appearance of text arranged using non-standard layouts like arch and wave may be different from the appearance of the printed text. Try
the following steps to get the printed output as close to the displayed version as possible.
1. Use a font size as close as possible to the required size. Using a different size and then enlarging or reducing to fit can cause errors to be
generated.
2. With some EZ-LABEL PRINTER models, certain display zoom factors will produce a display image that is close to the printed image.
* Use 2x with KL-8100
Rotating Background Graphics 90 Degrees
Importing graphic data after rotating by 90 degrees a graphics field whose aspect ratio (width to height) is not 1:1 causes the width and the height of
the imported graphic data to be reversed. This means that graphic data that has been rotated 90 degrees can be used as a background pattern
regardless of aspect ratio, without worrying about distortion of the graphic.
Communication and Printing Problems
Network
If you are using a computer with a CPU that is older than that specified for this application, the application may suddenly quit when you attempt to
communicate using the network function, or you may experience problems when trying to send print data from your computer to the EZ-LABEL
PRINTER.
If this happens, turn off the network setting. For details on how to do this, see the documentation that comes with your computer and the
documentation for your network’s operating system.
Swap Memory
Frequent accessing of swap memory can cause problems when you try to send print data from your computer to the EZ-LABEL PRINTER.
If this happens, turn off the swap memory setting. For details on how to do this, see the documentation that comes with your computer and the
documentation for Windows.
Other Applications
An RS-232C port (serial port) cannot be selected if another application is occupying it. Perform the operation required by the application to free the
port.
See the documentation that comes with your application for details on how to free up the RS-232C port.
Computer Serial Port Settings
Some notebook type computers can be set up to enter a low-power mode that cuts off power to the RS-232C port (serial port) when it is not in use. The
EZ-LABEL PRINTER cannot communicate with a port that is not being supplied power.
The EZ-LABEL PRINTER also cannot communicate with an RS-232C port (serial port) unless its transmission mode is set to asynchronous.
See the documentation that comes with your computer for details on low-power mode and transmission mode settings.
The low-power mode setting in this case is a hardware-specific setting, and is not a Windows 95 Power Management setting.
Screen Saver Precaution
Be sure to turn off all screen savers and other applications that employ forced interrupts whenever running this application. A forced interrupt not only
terminates the transfer of data from this application to the EZ-LABEL PRINTER, it also can cause serious damage to your computer and the EZ-LABEL
PRINTER.
Should your computer ever lock up while using this application, reset the computer and turn the EZ-LABEL PRINTER off and then back on again. See
the documentation that comes with your computer for details on how to reset it.
File Display Limitations
This application does not support display of data saved using compressed TIFF or compressed BMP formats.
Note that the TIFF format includes a number of different standard options, so you may not be able to correctly display or print certain types of TIFF
files. For details on the TIFF file options that are available, see the documentation of the application used to create the TIFF file.
Importing Excel 97 .xls Files
This application support direct import of Excel 5.0/95 files whose file names have the extension ”.xls”. Attempting to import an Excel 97 .xls file causes
the import to be aborted with the message ”<file name> has no module.” appearing on the screen. To import Excel 97 .xls files with this application,
save the data as an Excel 5.0/95 file first.
Value Limits for Excel Data Converted Using the Display Format
The decimal parts of values contained in imported Excel data are rounded off. Dates and times are displayed as values. Display formats can be
specified for each row.
Values can be displayed using 15 significant digits. Though Excel supports a value input range of -9.99999999999999E307 to
9.99999999999999E307, this application supports alpha-numeric strings up to 255 digits long only. Anything past the 255th character (commas and
monetary symbols also counted) is cut off.
The range of dates supported is from January 1, 1901 through December 31, 2078.
