2-3. Loading the Roll Paper
Notes: Be sure to use paper rolls that meet the specifications. Do not use paper rolls
that have the paper glued to the core because the printer cannot detect the paper end
correctly. (Turn off power switch)
☞ Turn off power switch.
1. Make sure that the printer is not receiving data; Otherwise, data may be lost.
2. Open the paper roll cover by pulling down the cover-open lever.
3. Remove the used paper roll core if there is one inside.
4. Insert new paper roll as shown.
Page 7
5. Be sure to note the correct direction that the paper comes off the roll.
6. Pull out a small amount of paper, as shown. Then, close the cover.
7. Tear off the paper as shown.

2-4. DIP SWITCH SETTING
The printer is set up at the factory to be appropriate for almost all users. It does, however,
offer some settings for users with special requirements.
It has DIP switches that allow you to change communication setting, such as handshaking
and parity check, as well as print density.
Your printer has two sets of DIP switches. The functions of the switches are shown in the
following tables.
※Note : Power off. And open the cover of Dip Switch and change setting.

2. Remove the screw from the DIP switch cover. Then, take off the DIP switch cover as
shown in the illustration below.
3. Set the switches using a pointed toll, such as tweezers or a small screwdriver.
4. Replace the DIP switch cover. Then, secure it with the screw.
Page 11
The new settings take effect when you turn on the printer.
☞CAUTION:
When the paper is jammed with cutter, the top cover might be stuck. In this case, repeat
power on and off several times.
If the top cover is still stuck, please follow the steps to release the papers from jamming.
1. Make sure the printer is turned off.
2. Take out cutter cover as shown.
3. Turn screw with drivers to a direction until paper is released from the cutter.

4. Self Test
The self-test lets you know if your printer is operating properly. It checks the control
circuits, printer mechanisms, print quality, ROM version and DIP switch settings.
This test is independent of any other equipment or software.
Running the self test
1. Make sure the printer is turned off and the printer cover is closed properly.
2. While holding down the FEED button, turn on the printer using the switch on the front of
the printer to begin the self-test. The Self Test prints the printer settings and then prints
the following, Cuts the paper, and pauses. (Error LED On)
Self test Printing
Please press the PAPER FEED button.
3. Press the FEED button to continue printing. The printer prints a pattern using the
built-in character set.
4. The self test automatically ends and cuts the paper after printing the following:
*** Completed ***
The printer is ready to receive data as soon as it completes the self-test.
5. Hexadecimal Dump
This feature allows experienced users to see exactly what data is coming to the printer.
This can be useful in finding software problems.
When you turn on the hex dump function, the printer prints all commands and other data
in hexadecimal format along with a guide section to help you find specific commands.
To use the hex dump feature, follow these steps:
1. After you make sure that the printer is off and Dip s/w 1-2 is ON, turn on the printer.
2. Run any software program that sends data to the printer. The printer prints
“ Hexadecimal Dump” and then all the codes it receives in a two-column format. The
first column contains the hexadecimal codes and the second column gives the ASCⅡ
characters that correspond to the codes.
Hexadecimal Dump
1B 21 00 1B 26 02 40 40 .!..& . @ @
1B 25 01 1B 63 34 00 1B .%.. c4 ..
41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 ABCDEFGH
□ A period (.) is printed for each code that has no ASCⅡequivalent.
3. Turn off the printer, and make sure that Dip sw 1-2 off.
4. Turn on the printer.
