overheating, abnormal odours or smoking.
• Always use the specified voltage and the suggested
AC adapter (AD-24ES) to prevent any damage or
failure.
• Unplug the adapter cord immediately and stop using
the P-touch labeller during an electric storm.
• Do not use the P-touch labeller/adapter in places of high
humidity such as bathrooms. Do not get the P-touch
labeller/adapter/power plug wet such as by handling
them with wet hands or spilling beverages onto it.
• Do not overload the adapter cord. Do not forcibly bend
or pull the adapter cord. Do not damage or place heavy
objects on the adapter cord or plug.
• Hold the plug when disconnecting the adapter cord
from the power outlet. Do not use an outlet that is loose.
• Do not swallow the cutter stopper.
• Do not disassemble or modify the P-touch labeller/
adapter/batteries. Do not use metallic objects such as
tweezers or a pen when changing the batteries. Do not
throw the batteries into fire or expose to heat.
• Disconnect the adapter, remove the batteries and stop
using the P-touch labeller immediately if you notice
abnormal odour, heat, discoloration, deformation or
anything unusual while using or storing it.
CAUTION
Follow these guidelines to avoid personal
injury, battery leakage, burn and heat
• Do not touch the edge of the cutter or any metal part
near the print head.
• Remove the batteries and disconnect the adapter if you
do not intend to use the P-touch labeller for an

alkaline batteries with other types.
• Do not drop or hit the P-touch labeller/adapter. Do not
press hard on the LCD display.
• Do not put your finger between the covers when you
close the cassette cover.
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
• Depending on the location, material, and
environmental conditions, the label may unpeel or
become irremovable, the colour of the label may
change or be transferred to other objects. Before
applying the label, check the environmental condition
and the material.
• Do not use the labeller in any way or for any purpose
not described in this guide. Doing so may result in
accidents or damage to the machine.
• Only use a soft, dry cloth to clean the labeller; never
use alcohol or other organic solvents.
• Use a cotton swab to clean the print head; never touch
the print head.
• Do not put any foreign objects into the tape exit slot or
adapter etc.

sunlight or rain, near heaters or other hot appliances, in
any location exposed to extremely high or low
temperatures (e.g. on the dashboard or in the back of
your car), high humidity, or dusty locations.
• Do not apply excessive pressure to the cutter lever.
• Do not try to print if the cassette is empty; it will damage
the print head.
• Do not pull the tape while printing or feeding; it will
damage the tape and the labeller.
• Any data stored in memory will be lost due to failure or
repair of the labeller, or if the battery expires and no
