Do not use or store the printer near fire, excessive moisture, in direct sunlight, near an air
conditioner or heater, or any other source of unusually high or low temperature or humidity, or
excessive dust.
Do not place the printer where chemical reactions occur, such as in a laboratory.
Do not set up the printer where there is salinity or corrosive gas in the air.
The printer must sit on a firm, level surface where there is ample ventilation.
Do not put anything on the top of the printer.
Do not place the printer near a radio or television, and do not use the same wall outlet for the
printer and radio or television. Radio or television reception could be adversely affected.
Do not use a power voltage or frequency other than those specified.
Do not put anything on the power cord or step on it.
Do not drag or carry the printer by the power cord or USB cable.
Avoid plugging the power cord into an outlet with many loads.
Do not bundle the power cord.
Always grip the plug housing, not the cord, to plug/unplug the power cord.
Make certain the power is turned off before connecting/disconnecting the USB cable.
Avoid lengthening the signal cable or connecting it to any noise-producing device.
If it is unavoidable, use a shielded cable or twisted pair for each signal.
Place the printer near the outlet where the power cord can be unplugged easily to shut off power.
Use an AC outlet that accepts a three-pronged plug. Otherwise, there may be danger of electric
shock.
Use the appropriate specified cord set.
Only use items that are certified safe according to the standards of the country where they are to

5. Install the new roll of paper on the paper holder.
When installing it, make sure there are no gaps between the paper and the holder.
Make sure the paper is not sticking out. If the end of the roll is uneven (with paper sticking out), remove it from
the holder, and flatten it.

7. Remove the tape, and advance the roll as indicated by the arrow. Set the end of the paper about 5mm beyond
the roller. When doing this, insert the paper straight along the seal. If it isn’t inserted straight, the paper will
be crooked, which could cause white line on the edges of the print, ribbon wrinkles, and register slippage.

9. Turn the paper in the direction of the arrow. When it is advanced enough, the buzzer will beep, and the
flashing LED (orange) will go out.
It is easier to set if the paper is turned while securing the holder with one hand.
10. Set the scrap box, and close the cover.
The printer will not operate without the scrap box.
If the mechanism unit is closed without the scrap box attached, there will be a “No Scrap Box Error”, and the
LED will flash (red).
CAUTION
・ The printer will not operate without the scrap box attached.
・ When the scrap box is removed, do not insert your fingers in the cutter at the top.
They could be cut or severed.
・ As prints are cut, the scrap box fills with scrap paper. Be sure to empty it when you change the paper
and ribbon. If it becomes over-filled with scraps, it could cause problems with the printer.

11. Set the new ribbon into the ribbon cassette.
Advance the ribbon in the direction of the arrow, and take up any slack.

13.Close the mechanism unit.
*When the mechanism unit is closed, the printer will run initialization (4 blank sheets will be fed out).
However, if the power is turned ON after the paper is set, it won’t run the initialization.
By running initialization, the dirty outer layer of paper is cut off.
*In order to facilitate media color adjustment, media type recognition, and print quantity management, an
IC chip is built into the ink ribbon. Media without an IC chip, which has not been evaluated and
cleared, may not function properly. (If correct data cannot be read from the IC chip, an alarm will
sound. In this case, in order to protect the printer, it will lower the concentration for printing.)
*Please change the media as a set, because the IC chip for each ribbon has unique information.
Otherwise, errors could occur.
CAUTION
・ Replace the ribbon and paper as a set to avoid problems later.

Trouble-shooting
Solving Media Errors
1. Pull out the mechanism unit.
2. Remove the ribbon cassette.
a.
If the paper is jammed:
1. Pull any paper remaining in the printer in the direction shown, and cut off any wrinkled or partially
printed areas evenly with scissors.
Printing over an already printed area will cause the ribbon to stick, and the paper will jam again.
When pulling the paper out, pull it slowly. Application of too much force could damage the printer.
CAUTION
・ Please be careful not to hurt yourself or damage anything on the edges of the printer.

2. Remove the scrap box, and rewind the paper.
3. Cut off any partially printed, wrinkled, or otherwise inferior paper evenly with a pair of scissors, and
reset the paper. If wrinkles or partially printed areas are left, it could cause the paper to jam again.

Trouble-shooting
b. If the ribbon is pulled into the mechanism:
1. Cut the ribbon.
2. Carefully remove any ribbon remaining in the mechanism.
Any pieces of ribbon left inside the mechanism could affect print quality.
In this case, clean the platen roller see P.22
3. Reattach the ribbon with cellophane (or similar) tape.
Tape
4. Rotate the up-take ribbon several times until the tape is out of sight. Take care that there is no slack in
the ribbon.
Then, refer to a. If the paper is jammed.
19
Trouble-shooting
c. If the printer is stopped in the middle of cutting:
1. Turn the power back ON. Free the jammed paper, and return the cutter blade to its ready position.
If the jammed paper cannot be freed, please contact a service representative.
2. Remove any partially printed material from inside the mechanism unit.
Then, refer to a. If the paper is jammed.
d. If power is cut during printing:
*If the power is cut during printing, you will not be able to pull out the mechanism unit.
1. Turn the power back ON. The partial print will be cut into scrap-size pieces and removed.
After this, you will be able to pull out the mechanism unit.
2. Check that there is no printed material in the mechanism unit.
If the paper is jammed, refer to a. If the paper is jammed.
CAUTION
・ Do not turn the power OFF while printing. This could damage the printer.
20
Cleaning
Platen Roller
If there is an indent on the pictures at a regular interval, or if the back of the picture (white side) is
dirty, clean the platen roller.
There may be dust, grime, adhesives, etc. from the ribbon or paper on the platen roller.
1. Prepare a piece of gauze or other soft cloth soaked in ethyl alcohol.
Benzenes or thinners other than ethyl alcohol may permeate the resin, so they should not be used.
2. Wipe off any grime while turning the platen roller.
CAUTION
・ Please be careful not to hurt yourself or damage anything on the edges of the printer.
・ Never use benzenes or thinners other than ethyl alcohol, as they may permeate the resin.
