receive any command. Then pressing the Pause key once again, the printer will get out of
the Pause mode and go back to standby mode.
Pressing the Pause key while printing, printer will suspend the print job. When the Pause
key is pressed one more time, the printer will continue with the rest of the print job. For
example, when printing with a print job that contains 10 labels and then press the Pause
key to suspend the print job after 2 labels are printed out. If the Pause key is pressed again,
the printer will print out remaining 8 labels to complete the print job.
Cancel Key
The Cancel key is used to cancel current print job. The LCD Display will show “Print job is
cancelled” when pressing the Cancel key during printing. For example, when printing with a
print job that contains 10 labels and then press the Cancel key after 2 labels are printed out.
The remaining 8 labels will not be printed, and the printer goes back to standby mode.

3-5. Dump Mode
When the print result doesn’t match the label setting, it’s recommended to go into the Dump
Mode to check whether there is a mistake in data transmission between the printer and the PC.

printed out the contents of the commands, this will confirm whether the commands were received
correctly. Test procedures to enter the Dump Mode are as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Power off the printer, press and hold the FEED key.
Power on the printer (while still holding the FEED key).
When LCD Display shows “DUMP MODE BEGIN,” then release the FEED key. Printer will

Mode.
Send commands to the printer, and check if printed content matches the commands that
just be sent.
To cancel (get out of) the Dump Mode, please press the FEED key, and then the printer will
automatically print “OUT OF DUMP MODE.” This indicates that the printer is back to the standby
mode.
3-6. Auto Sensing
Printer can automatically detect the paper length and record it. By this way, users do not need to
set the paper length and the printer can accurately detect the position of paper gap.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Check if the paper is loaded properly.
Power off the printer, press and hold the Pause key.
Power on the printer while still holding the Pause key until the printer beeps 3 times and the
LCD Display shows “Auto Sensing mode,” then release the Pause key. The printer will
automatically detect the label size/length and record the information.
LCD Display shows the results of measurement.
The printer will be back to standby mode after displaying the result of Auto Sensing.

When cleaning the print head with soft
cloth, make sure there is no any metal
or hard particles attached on it.
5-2. Thermal Print Head Balance Adjustment
When printing with different label
materials or using different ribbon types,
unbalanced print quality may occur due
