INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the P-Touch 1700!
Your new P-Touch will allow you to design and print labels for any application.
Since it is extremely versatile, you will be able to create characters of many sizes
and styles. In addition, by using the variety of tape cassettes available, you can
print labels with different widths and exciting colors.
You no longer have to worry about urgent tasks that require professional printing.
In the office, the factory, the lab and the home, the quality and performance of
the P-Touch 1700 makes it a very versatile machine.
Finally, as you may want to refer to this manual occasionally, we suggest that you
keep it in a handy place.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
● Use only Brother TZ tapes with this machine. Do not use tapes that do not
have the
mark.
● Four different tape widths are available: 6 mm, 9 mm, 12 mm and 18 mm.
● Do not pull the tape. This may damage the tape cassettes.
● Do not clean the machine with alcohol or other organic solvents. Use only a
soft, dry cloth.
● Remove the batteries and/or disconnect the AC adaptor if you do not intend
to use your machine for an extended period of time.
(Note: When power is disconnected, any messages in the working area or the
Message Memory area will be lost.)
● Do not put anything onto or into the machine.
● Do not expose the machine to high temperatures or high humidity. Never
leave it on the dashboard or in the back of your car.
● Do not use the machine in dusty places. Keep it out of both direct sunlight

BEFORE YOU START
INSERTING A TAPE CASSETTE
Brother TZ tapes are only available in the following widths for this machine:
6 mm, 9 mm, 12 mm and 18 mm.
To insert a new tape cassette:
(1) Lift the cassette cover so that you can reach the tape cassette easily. This will
also release the installed cassette.
(2) If there is a tape cassette already in the compartment, remove it by pulling it
straight up.
(3) Remove the stopper from a new tape cassette and if the tape is loose, use
your finger to wind it in the direction of the arrow on the tape cassette until it
is taut. If you are using a previous tape, ensure the tape is taut prior to inserting it into the unit.
Note:
Some tape cassettes are not provided with a stopper.
(4) Insert the tape cassette firmly into the compartment.
(5) Shut the compartment cover.
(6) Advance the tape by holding down the CODE key and pressing the FEED key
once, then cut the tape.
Note:
●
●
When inserting a tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does
not get caught on the corner of the metal securing stand.
The white lever (release lever) automatically locks when the cover is
closed. If the white lever is manually operated, the cover can not be
closed.
-6-
INSERTING BATTERIES
The machine uses six “AA” size (AM3, LR6, SUM-3, R6) batteries.
To insert batteries:
(1) Turn the machine over. Remove the battery compartment cover by pinching
the latch and lifting.
(2) Follow the diagrams on the back of the compartment to insert the batteries in
the proper direction.
(3) After inserting the batteries, re-fit the battery compartment cover.
When “BATT” (Batteries Weak) is displayed, replace the six batteries.
● Alkaline batteries are recommended.
● An optional AC adaptor is available. (Model AD-30:7V, 1.2A)
Note:
●
●
When replacing batteries, do so in three minutes or less. Otherwise,
unless an optional AC adaptor is attached, any message in the working area or Phrase Memory will be lost.
Note the following details when 1.2 V rechargeable NiCd batteries
are used in this machine.
(1) “BATT” will not appear on the display when the rechargeable
batteries are weak or empty. Instead, the power will turn off.
(2) Even after the batteries are recharged, the characters may not be
printed clearly as a result of a low recharging efficiency or the
operating conditions.
-7-
CHANGING THE CUTTER UNIT
When the cutter is not cutting well, replace it with a new one.
To replace a cutter with a dull or broken blade:
(1) Open the tape cassette compartment cover and carefully remove the tape
cassette if it is installed.
(2) Grasp the cutter with your fingers and pull it out.
(3) Grasp the new cutter with the tab on the protective film and insert the cutter
into the machine.
(4) Remove the cutter’s protective film.
(5) Insert the tape cassette, then close the tape cassette compartment cover.
WARNING: Be very careful not to cut yourself when replacing the cutter.
Note:
The expected life of the unit’s cutter is approximately 2000 cuts.
CAUTION
•
•
When changing the cutter unit, be sure not to touch the cutter blade.
Make sure that small children do not try to put the cutter unit in their mouths.
-8-
STARTING
To start the machine:
Press the ON/OFF key.
The machine’s internal memory retains the last message created, and displays it
when you turn on the machine. This feature allows you to stop work on a message, turn off the machine, and return to it later without having to re-enter the
message.
The machine has an automatic power down feature. If the machine is on, but is
not used for five minutes, it will automatically shut off. The message will be
retained in memory until the machine is turned on again.
-9-
CREATING A MESSAGE
DISPLAY
You are now ready to create a message on the machine.
The machine’s LCD display is four characters wide. Actually though, you can
create messages up to 55 characters in length. The four-character display is like a
window which moves across your message.
1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345
MOVING THE CURSOR
You can review and edit different parts of your message by moving the cursor
backward and forward.
To move the cursor through your message:
Press the

KEY OPERATIONS
CODE KEY
By holding down the CODE key and pushing the appropriate key, you can use
the functions written in pink characters.
SHIFT KEY
By using the SHIFT key you can type capital letters, and symbols located on the
upper part of keys. To type a capital “A”, hold the SHIFT key down and push the
“A” key. To type a “percent” sign “%” (located above the “5”), hold the SHIFT
key down and push the “5” key.
CAPS KEY
By holding down the CODE key and pressing the CAPS key, you set the machine
into CAPS mode. When this mode is entered, the CAPS indicator on the display
turns on. In CAPS mode, capital letters can be typed simply by pressing the character keys. If number keys are pressed, numbers -- not the symbols above them -result. For this reason, CAPS mode is particularly useful for creating messages
containing many numerals and capital letters. To exit CAPS mode, hold down the
CODE key and press the CAPS key.
ALT KEY
By using the ALT key you can type various symbols marked on the keys in green.
To type a symbol located on the right side of a key, hold down the ALT key and

MIRROR PRINTING
For this application, tape with a clear adhesive must be used.
When the Mirror Printing function is used, characters are printed so as to be legible from the adhesive side of the tape. If the labels are then attached to glass or
some other transparent material, they can be read correctly from the opposite
side. This type of label is particularly useful for attachment to the inside of shop
windows or clear notebooks, so that it can be read from the outside. For this
application, transparent tape must be used.

sides of the label. The margins can be set to any of the following four widths:
4 mm, 8 mm, 12 mm or 24 mm. When continuously printing labels, the labels
can be printed without extra margins. In addition, this function is very convenient when printing more than one label with multiple styles while changing the
styles each time a label is printed.
