Label Calibration and Self Test
Label Calibration
The printer can automatically detect and store label height.
That means the host computer does not need to transmit the label height to the printer.
Self Test
Self-test function lets you check whether the printer is functioning normally.
Here is how you run the label size calibration and self test.
1.
Check that the label stock is loaded correctly.
2.
Turn off the printer.
3.
Turn the printer on again, keeping the FEED button pressed. When the LED starts to flash red, release the FEED
button. The printer will now measure the label stock and store the label height.
4.
Once the printer has successfully measured the label stock, it will print a self-test label.
The contents of a self-test printout are listed below.

TPH print line adjustment:
When printing is slow or
when printing on thick
label stock, the print line
must be moved to the
front (in paper feed
direction) for a better
print result. Using a
flat-head screwdriver,
turn the screws
clockwise to move the
TPH forward.
The two screws on the
left and right must be
adjusted to the same
position to ensure the
print line and feed roller
are in parallel.
One turn of the screw
moves the print head by
0.5 mm. To keep track of
the change in quality,
you should adjust the
screws by ¼ turn at a
time.
If no improvement is
visible, gently turn the
screws clockwise as far
as possible, then restart
the adjustment process
from there.

Adjusting the print line
You can adjust the ribbon tension by
turning the ribbon shaft knob (green
wheel at the base of the ribbon
supply hub – see illustration)
clockwise or anticlockwise. There are
4 possible settings, which are marked
on the knob of the ribbon rewind
hub and the ribbon supply hub.
When set to 1, the tension is highest,
while the tension is lowest at 4. If the
tension is so low that the ribbon does
not move forward, you need to
reduce the tension of the ribbon
supply hub or increase the tension of
the ribbon rewind hub. To set the
tension, press in the knob and turn it
clockwise or anticlockwise as
required.
Increasing the tension of the ribbon
rewind hub will remove any wrinkling
of the ribbon during printing, which
results from the use of different
ribbon materials. (For details about
the wrinkling/creasing of ribbons, see
Section 5-6.)
-
If you are using a very narrow ribbon,
the printer may not move the label
stock forward (particularly with a
ribbon that is less than 2" wide). In
that case, reduce the tension by
turning the knob of the ribbon supply
hub anticlockwise. If the tension is
too high, the ribbon core may be
crushed and thus impossible to
remove. In that case, reduce the
tension of the ribbon supply hub and
the ribbon rewind hub by turning the
knobs anticlockwise.

Cleaning the thermal print head
Dirt on the print head or ribbon
may result in inadequate print
quality (no printed image on
part of the label). The printer
cover should therefore be kept
closed whenever possible.
Keeping dirt and dust away from
the paper or labels ensures a
good print quality and a longer
lifespan of the print head. Here is
how you clean the print head:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Switch off the printer.
Open the printer cover.
Remove the ribbon.
Release the print head by
turning the print head
release lever.
To remove any label
residue or other dirt from
the print head (see blue
arrow), please use a soft
lint-free cloth dipped in
alcohol.
【Note 1】
The print head should be
cleaned once a week.
【Note 2】
Please make sure that there are
no metal fragments or other
hard particles on the soft cloth
used to clean the print head.

Adjusting the balance and print head tension
1.
Open the printer side cover.
2.
Pull out the print head
release lever as shown in
the illustration (1) and turn it
anticlockwise to a top right
position (2).
When using a variety of label
stock and ribbons, the ink may
not be evenly distributed. If there
is no printed image on one side
of the paper, or the ribbon
wrinkles, the print head pressure
must be readjusted using the TPH
spring boxes.
3.
Move the TPH spring boxes
as shown in the illustration to
change the print head
pressure. The wider the
medium you are using, the
further out the TPH spring
boxes must be moved.
If there is no quality
improvement, you need to
change the pressure on the TPH
spring boxes.
4.
Turning the screw clockwise
increases the pressure,
while turning it
anticlockwise reduces the
pressure.

Ribbon shield settings
1.
The use of different ribbon materials may cause wrinkling of the ribbon, which in
turn affects the print result as illustrated by the examples in (a) and (b). To change
the print quality, you can adjust the ribbon shield screws.
If your print result looks like the example in (a), you need to turn ribbon shield screw A
clockwise. If your print result looks like the example in (b), you need to turn ribbon shield
screw B clockwise.
(a)
2.
(b)
To keep track of the change in print quality, you should adjust the screws by half a
turn at a time. Print a test page. If there is no improvement in the print result, turn
the screw by another half turn. Do not turn the adjustment screw more than two
full turns.
【Note】
If you adjust the screw by more than two full turns, the paper feed may no longer
function correctly. In that case, unscrew the ribbon shield screws fully and restart the
adjustment process.
