PRINTER FEATURES
Your LabelWriter printer is a direct thermal printer and
does not use toner, ink cartridges or a ribbon. Instead, it
uses heat from a thermal print head to print on specially
treated labels. Labels are the only supply you will ever
have to buy.
Figure 1 depicts the major components of the printer.

The form-feed button on the front of the printer
advances a single label. The label eject button is used
to remove labels from the printer when changing rolls.
The LED status light allows you to visually determine the
current state of the printer:
• Solid blue - power is on and the printer is ready.
• Flashing blue - labels are not loaded properly or
label spool is empty.
