Part 1
Getting Acquainted
This part of the manual provides you with important information you need to know in order
to use the Label Printer to its full potential. Be sure to read it carefully before using the
Label Printer for the first time.
Important Precautions
• Keep your Label Printer out of areas subject to temperature
extremes, moisture and direct sunlight. The recommended
temperature range is 10° to 35°C (50° to 95°F).
• Don’t let coffee, juice or other liquids splash onto the Label
Printer.
• Never let paper clips, pins or other foreign objects get into
the tape outlet slot or printer of the Label Printer.
• Do not pile heavy objects on top of the Label Printer.
• Never try to take the Label Printer apart or attempt your own
maintenance.
• Do not drop your Label Printer, and avoid strong impact.
4
• Do not pull on the tape or try to force it back into the Label
Printer.
• Do not use benzine, thinner, or other volatile chemicals to
clean the exterior of the Label Printer. Use a soft dry cloth or
a cloth dampened with a weak solution of a mild neutral
detergent and water. Wring the cloth out until all excess
moisture is removed.
• A dirty printer head can cause printing to become smudged.
When this happens, clean off the printer head by wiping it
with a cotton swab moistened with alcohol (page 65).
• Use of the Label Printer next to a television or radio may
interfere with reception.

Part 2
Getting Ready
This part of the manual tells you how to load batteries and the tape cartridge, and how to
perform other basic setups for the Label Printer.
Important!
Be sure to read this section before attempting to use the Label Printer.
Power Supply
The Label Printer can be powered by eight AA-size batteries or an optional AC adaptor
(AD-A95100). A CR2032 battery is also used as a memory back-up power supply.
Replacing Batteries
A handy low battery power indicator lets you know when battery power is getting too low for
proper operation. The message LOW BATTERY appears on the display if battery power is
low when you perform any of the following operations.
• Switching power on
• Executing a print operation
• Executing a tape feed operation
When the LOW BATTERY message appears, press ESC to clear it from the display. You
should still be able to perform some Label Printer operations, but some power intensive
operations (like printing or tape feed) may become impossible if battery power is too low. In
any case, you should replace batteries as soon as possible or switch to the AC adaptor as
soon as possible after the LOW BATTERY message appears.
Important!
Batteries can burst or leak and damage your unit if you use them the wrong way. Note the
following important points.
• Be sure that the plus (+) and minus (−) sides of each battery are facing correctly.
• Never mix batteries of different types
• Never leave dead batteries in the battery compartment.
• Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use the unit for a long time.
• Be sure to replace the main battery in accordance with the battery life noted on the side
of the battery itselt, and the back-up battery once every 1 year.
Warning!
• Never recharge the batteries you use with this unit.
• Do not expose batteries to direct heat, do not short circuit them, and do not try to take
them apart.
• Keep batteries out of the reach of small children. If swallowed, consult with a
physician immediately.
• Low battery power is indicated by poor print quality or power switching off while printing
is in progress.
9
To replace the memory back-up battery
Before using the Label Printer for the first time, be sure that you first use the following
procedure to install the memory back-up battery that comes with it. Data stored in memory
will be lost if you do not load this battery.
1. Switch power off.
2. Use a small phillips head screwdriver to loosen the screw that
secures the back-up battery compartment cover in place, and
remove the cover.
3. Wipe off the surfaces of a CR2032 battery with a soft dry cloth,
and install it with its plus (+) side facing up (so you can see it).
4. Carefully replace the battery compartment cover and secure it
in place with the screw.
• You should use the above procedure to replace the memory back-up battery once a
year.
To replace the main batteries

Deleting and Inserting Characters
This section describes everything you need to know about deleting and editing characters
you have already input.
Moving the Cursor
The following points describe how to move the cursor around the display to position it for
deleting and editing characters.
To move the cursor
• Press H to move the cursor to the left, and J to move the cursor to the right.
• Press FUNC and then H to make the cursor jump to the beginning (far left) of the
characters on the display.
• Press FUNC and then J to make the cursor jump to the end (far right) of the characters
on the display.
• Press SHIFT and then H to make the cursor jump to the next newline mark (see “To
input alpha-numeric characters”) or block mark (page 37) to the left.
• Press SHIFT and then J to make the cursor jump to the next newline mark or block
mark to the right.
• Holding down the cursor keys moves the cursor left or right at high speed.
Deleting Individual Characters
You can delete individual characters with either the BS key or the DEL key. The only difference between the operation of these two keys is the location of the cursor.
To delete characters using the BS key
Example: To change the word “commmputer” to “computer”.
1. Use H and J to move the cursor under “p”.

2. Press BS twice to delete the two m’s to the left of the cursor, shifting “puter” to the left as
you do.
• Press FUNC and then J to jump back to the end of the characters for more input.
23
To delete characters using the DEL key
Example: To change the word “commmputer” to “computer”.
1. Use H and J to move the cursor under the first (far left) “m”.
2. Press DEL twice to delete the two m’s at the cursor’s position, shifting “mputer” to the
left as you do.
• Press FUNC and then J to jump back to the end of the characters for more input.
Deleting a Series of Characters
The Label Priter’s Word Out function lets you delete a series of characters with a single
operation. This operation deletes all characters to the left of the current cursor location, up
to the previous space.
To delete a series of characters
Example: To change “ABC XYZDEF GHI” to “ABC DEF GHI”.
1. Use H and J to move the cursor under the letter “Z”.
2. Press FUNC (the
indicator appears on the display), and then BS.
• This deletes everything from “Z” up to the next space to the left of the cursor, leaving
“ABC DEF GHI”.
Using the CLS Function
The CLS function gives you two options for clearing the display. You can either clear all text
from the display, or you can specify a series of text for clearing.
To clear all text from the display

6. Press SET to clear the text you selected.
Overwrite and Insert
You can set up the Label Printer for either overwrite or insert of characters at the cursor
position. The following describes the difference between these two options.
Overwrite
With overwrite, characters you input replace the characters at the cursor location. The
Label Printer is in the overwrite mode when the overwrite mode indicator (see “Display
Symbols and Indicators”) is on the display.
25
Insert
With insert, characters you input are inserted between the characters at the cursor location. The Label Printer is in the insert mode when the overwrite mode indicator is not on the
display.
Note that insert is the default whenever you switch Label Printer power on.
The following table illustrates the difference between the overwrite and insert modes.

Part 5
Character Attributes and Text Effects
The operations in this part of the manual explain how to change the fonts, style, and size of
characters. These characteristics are called character attributes. It also tells you how to
assign such text effects as underlining, shading, and box printing to text after you finish
inputting it.
Specifying Character Attributes
You can specify character attributes at any of the following three points.
• Before you input any characters
In this case, the attributes are applied to the characters you input later. You cannot use this
method to assign text effects.
• After inputting some characters
This method lets you change the attributes being applied to the text you are inputting. You
cannot use this method to assign text effects.
• After you finish inputting text
Use this method to change the attributes of the text you have finished inputting. Text effects
can be assigned only for text that is already input.
The techniques to use for each of the above cases are described below.
Important!
• Character attributes you specify affect printed text only. The characters on the display do
not change.
• Remember that character attributes are assigned to specific characters, not to positions
on the display.
• Text effects are applied to both displayed text and printed text.
To specify attributes before inputting characters
When there are no characters on the display, simply specify the character attributes you
want. The characters that you input are then automatically assigned the attributes as you
input them.

Important!
• Note that certain character style and effects may result in poor print quality. This does
not indicate malfunction of the Label Printer.
• When the character size you select causes the text to become too large to fit on the tape
you are using, the Label Printer automatically reduces the character size to fit. When this
happens, the character size indicator shows the character size selected by the Label
Printer. The character size indicator is highlighted to show that your selected size was
adjusted to fit the tape.
About Auto Fit
If you do not specify a character size, the Label Printer automatically selects the optimum
size that can be used to fit all of the characters on the tape. When using 9 to 18mm wide
tape, for example, the Label Printer automatically uses 2×2 characters as the initial default.
If you insert a newline mark inside the text (see “To input alpha-numeric characters”), the
default character size automatically changes to 1×1 so both lines of text can fit on the tape.
About the FIT mark
FIT
Whenever you change the size of some of the characters on the display, the Label Printer
recalculates the optimum size of all the remaining characters. It also recalculates when you
input a newline mark ( ). When this happens, the Label Printer automatically inserts a fit
mark ( ) inside the text, which indicates that all text to the right of it is automatically adjusted to make it fit on the tape.
You can delete a fit mark, but if you do, the character size indicator will become highlighted
to indicate that characters will be automatically adjusted to a size that can be printed.

FORM Menu Functions
This part of the manual describes how to use the FORM menu to layout your text exactly
the way you want it on the label. With the FORM menu, you can control character pitch, text
blocks, text alignment, and a wide range of other features.
Fundamentals of Label Layout
Before we actually begin our discussion about how to layout a tape, we should first define
a few terms. Note the following illustration.
Label Length
Print Area
ABCD
EFGH
IJKLMN QRS TU
Side space
Blocks
VWZYZ
Side space
• Blocks
A block is text that is enclosed between two block marks ( ). Note that the first (far left)
block does not require a block mark at the beginning, and the last (far right) block does not
require a block mark at the end. If there are no block marks, all of the text is treated as a
single block. You can individually specify the length of each block, as well as the pitch and
the number of lines inside each block.
• Print Area
The print area is the actual area of a label that contains printed text. It starts with the left
side of the first character printed, and ends with the right side of the last character printed.
• Side Spaces
The side spaces are blank areas that the Label Printer automatically adds on either end of
the print area. Note that side spaces are only added when you are using auto feed, and
they are not added when using manual feed (see “Auto Feed”).
Auto Feed (with long side spaces)
ABXYZ
Auto Feed (with short side spaces)
ABXYZ
37
Manual Feed

• Label Length
The label length is the print area, plus the side spaces.
Settings you make for side spaces, block spacing, and mirror printing affect the entire label
length.
Creating and Deleting Blocks
The following procedures describe how to create and delete blocks. Later you will learn
how you can change certain settings on a block-by-block basis.
To create a block
Example: To input the text “ABXYZ Computer Company” and create two blocks: “ABXYZ”
and “Computer Company”.
1. Input the text.
2. Move the cursor to the space between “ABXYZ” and “Computer Company”.
3. Press BLOCK.
• If you wanted to break the text up into three blocks,
you would input another block mark.

To delete a block mark
To delete a block mark, use the procedures for BS and DEL as described under “Deleting

Character Pitch
The term character pitch refers to the relative spacing between characters. The Label Printer
provides three character pitches from which to choose: NONE (0mm), NARROW (0.5mm),
and WIDE (1mm).
The character pitch setting you make is applied only to the block where the cursor is
located when you perform the setting operation.
• The default character pitch setting is NONE.
To specify the character pitch
Example: For the two-block text “ABXYZ”, “Computer Company”, to change the spacing
of “ABXYZ” to WIDE.
38
1. Input the text and define the two blocks.
2. Use H and J to move the cursor so it is inside the block whose character pitch you
want to change.

• It is impossible to change the PITCH setting while the cursor is located at a block mark
( ) at the beginning of a block of text.
Block Length
You can individually specify the length of each block that makes up your label. If you are
making title labels for the edge of binders, for example, you can specify a uniform length for
the title, date, and author. This causes the text on the labels to be uniformly aligned when
the binders are placed on a bookshelf.
The block length setting you make is applied only to the block where the cursor is located
when you perform the setting operation.
To specify a block length
Example: To specify the following block lengths for the text noted below.

Important!
• If you input a block mark while inputting new text, the text to the right of the block mark
inherits its block-specific settings (block length and pitch) from the block to the left of the
block mark. If you specify a block length and then input “ABC DEF” for example, both
“ABC” and “DEF” have the same block length and pitch settings.
• If you change the block-specific settings of a block of text after inputting a block mark,
only the selected block is affected. If you change the settings of “ABC” in the above
example, the settings of “DEF” remain unchanged.
Tape Length
You can specify the physical length of tape that should be used for printing your text. There
are six different settings that you can use to specify the tape length.
• VHS
This setting automatically sets the tape length so it is suitable for use as a label for a VHS
video tape cassette.
• 8mm
This setting automatically sets the tape length so it is suitable for use as a label for an 8mm
video tape cassette.
• CASSETTE
This setting automatically sets the tape length so it is suitable for use as a label for an audio
cassette tape case.
• FLOPPY
This setting automatically sets the tape length so it is suitable for use as a label for a floppy
disk.
• FREE
Use this setting to set the tape to any length that you want.
• CANCEL
This setting cancels any of the above settings and instructs the Label Printer to automatically set the tape length.

Auto Feed
You can switch the Label Printer’s auto feed feature on and off. You can also specify one of
two different feed settings that provides either large or small side spaces (“Fundamentals
of Label Layout”). You can choose any one of the three following operations for tape feed.
• Auto Feed (LONG)
This setting causes the tape to feed 16mm at the beginning and end of each printing,
creating 16mm side spaces.
• Auto Feed (SHORT)
This setting causes the tape to feed 5mm at the beginning and end of each printing, creating 5mm side spaces.
When using the SHORT feed option, the message “CUT THEN [SET]!” appears as soon as
you press PRINT. Operate the cutter to cut off the leading end of the tape and press SET to
continue the print operation.
• Manual Feed (M-FEED)
This setting provides side spaces of only 1mm of the printed text. If you perform two consecutive print operations (without manually feeding between prints), the last character of
the first print operation is followed by the first character of the second print operation, with
no space provided between them. It is a good way to save tape when you print a series of
tapes.
Important!
• After you finish printing when using manual feed, be sure to always press FUNC and
then FEED to feed the tape before cutting it. If you don’t, you will cut off part of the printed
text.

Quick Formats
The quick formats in the Label Printer’s memory let you make character size settings with
the touch of a key. Then you simply input your text, which is automatically assigned the
character sizes according to the quick format you selected.

Important!
• Built-in formats affect character sizes only. Preset layouts (page 51) also include specifications for tape length, font attributes, etc.
• You can make attribute, font, and other specifications inside of a quick format, but you
cannot specify a character size.
• Selecting a quick format also limits the number of lines you can input. If you select a 2line format, for example, inputting a second newline mark ( ) causes an error message
to appear on the display.
• If the text you input has fewer lines than the selected format, the unused lines are left
blank.
48
• You can assign different quick format settings for each block. This means you can have
a 4-line block, followed by a 2-line block, etc.
• If you insert a block mark ( ) inside formatted text, the text to the left of the block mark
retains the formatting but the text to the right of the block mark is not affected by the
formatting.
• Remember that you can use only 2-line formats with
FUNC

Part 9
Printing
In addition to the procedure you should follow in order to actually print, this part of the
manual also includes information on a number of other useful printing features and functions.
Printing Precautions
• Never switch power off while printing is being performed.
• Make sure that the tape outlet is not blocked before you start printing.
• Make sure the tape cartridge compartment cover is closed when cutting the tape.
• Never operate the tape cutter while printing is being performed (indicated by the message NOW PRINTING on the display).
• During printing at very high density, printing of very long text, or repeat printing of the
same text a number of times, the Label Printer may stop printing for about five seconds.
This is not a malfunction, and normal printing should resume shortly.
Printing a Tape
Printing a tape is as easy as pressing PRINT. Before printing, you can also use IMAGE to
display what your output will look like.
To print a tape
1. Press PRINT to print a tape of the text you have input and laid out.
• To stop a print operation that is in progress, press ESC.
2. After the print operation is complete, press down on the tape cutter button to cut the
tape.
3. Use scissors to trim the tape to the size you want, if necessary.
• After you print a tape, you can peel off its paper
backing and stick the tape onto the object you
want. Note that the tape will not stick on coarse,
wet, oily, or soiled surfaces. Also, you should
not try to use the tape where it is exposed to
direct sunlight or rain. Do not stick the tape onto
human skin.
Backing
Tape
• An easy way to remove the backing from a tape
and expose the adhesive surface is to bend the
tape near one of its ends. This should cause
the tape and its backing to separate, allowing
you to pull them apart.
