Replacing the Ribbon
To Remove:
1. Pull the two catches upward
“B” and hold with index and
middle fingers. Remove the
ribbon cassette.
To Insert:
1. If the print mechanism is down
and a piece of paper cannot be
inserted, press the RESET button
to move the carriage up. This will
make the ribbon installation easier.
2. Insert a new ribbon between the
ribbon guide (C) and the printer
head (D).
3. Turn the knob on the cassette
clockwise one turn to take up any
slack in the ribbon.
4. Replace the cover.
5. Check the printing quality to
confirm that you have installed
the ribbon properly.
Adjusting the Margin
1. Remove the Mounting Bracket.
2. Locate the Card Stopper Adjustment
Screw behind the Wall Mounting
Bracket on the bottom of the machine.
3. Position a piece of paper or
time card and adjust the screw
accordingly. The print margin can be
adjusted a maximum of 22mm (7/8”).
There are ruler markings on both sides of
the base plate to help you align the card.

Using the DC Power Cord
1. The DC version of the PIX-21 is meant to be used only in motor
vehicles with a 12-volt negative ground electrical system.
2. Power to the cigarette lighter should be present with the ignition key in
the “off” position. If this is not known, it can be easily determined by
plugging in the PIX-21 power cord and observing the LED in the
cigarette lighter plug. If power is not present, the internal lithium battery
will be prematurely depleted.
3. If the vehicle will not be used for more than one week, we recommend
that the PIX-21 be removed from the vehicle and powered using the
optional AC adapter. Use with the AC adapter will prevent premature
depletion of the internal lithium battery. The lithium battery maintains the
PIX-21 memory only for brief periods, such as a power failure or during
relocation of the unit.
Using the Diagnostic Routine
The diagnostic routine checks the LCD segments, the number of prints,
and the memory clear (Print Style, Language, Leading Zero Suppress,
