Compuprint Information
Thanks for choosing this printer.
Your printer is a reliable working equipment that will be very useful in your
daily job.
Our printer have been designed to be compact and respectful of the work
environment. They offer a wide range of features and multiple functions that
confirm the high technological level reached by the Compuprint S.p.A .
To maintain these printing performances unchanged in the long run,
Compuprint has developed specific consumable accessories for each printer
type (for example: ribbon cartridges for dot matrix printers, toner and OPC
cartridges for laser printers, bubble ink jet cartridges for inkjet printers) that
assure an excellent operation with high printing quality level reliability.
Compuprint recommends to use only its original consumables with
original packaging (identified by its holographic label). In this way, a
proper use of the printer at quality level unreliability stated in the product
characteristics can be assured. All typical usage problems related to not
certified consumables may be avoided, such as an overall quality print level
degradation and ,often, the reduction of the product life due to the fact that
the proper print heads working conditions, OPC cartridge and other printer
parts are not assured.
Moreover, Compuprint does not only certify its consumables in terms of
working conditions but also carefully controls their compliance with the
international standard rules concerning:
•
no cancerous materials;
•
no inflammability of the plastic materials;
•
other standards
Compuprint advices the customers not to use products for which the
compliance to this safety rules are not warranted.
Finally seek your dealer or contact a Compuprint office and be sure that are
provided you the original Compuprint consumables.

Choosing a Suitable Location
Consider the following points when you choose the location for your printer:
•
The distance between the printer and the host computer must not exceed
the length of the interface cable;
•
The location must be sturdy, horizontal and stable;
•
Your printer must not be exposed to direct sunlight, extreme heat, cold,
dust or humidity (see "Printer Specifications", later);

Resetting to Factory Default Values
With the BACK TO MFG function it is possible to reset all items in the Power
On Configuration and in the Program Setup to their factory default values.
This may be useful if you do not remember the values you set in the menus,
or because you simply changed you mind about the settings you have just
done.
The default values for the menu items are described at the beginning of the

How to Handle the Paper Parking
The paper parking is performed in the following cases:
•
At power on, if the paper is loaded in a paper path that is not the default one,
the parking is performed automatically.
•
If the paper is present and the PATH key is pressed to change the paper path,
the printer requests to confirm the parking of the current fanfold paper
(PARK SURE? message is displayed) by pressing the PARK key, before the
paper path is changed, then the paper is loaded in the new paper path.
•
When parking via SW command, the printer requests to park the paper
(PARK SURE? message is displayed) by pressing the PARK key.
•
When loading paper via SW command in a different paper path, the printer
requests to park the paper in the current paper path (PARK SURE? message
is displayed) by pressing the PARK key, then the printer parks the paper
before loading the paper in the selected path.
•
When changing to a macro using a different paper path, the printer
automatically parks the paper.

Printer Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Printer Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Cleaning the Printer
Make sure the printer has been turned off for at least 15 minutes before starting
any cleaning operations.
Periodic cleaning will help keep your printer in top condition so that it will
always provide optimal performance.
•
Use a neutral detergent or water solution on a soft cloth to clean dirt and
grease from the cabinet of the printer.
•
Do not use an abrasive cloth, alcohol, paint thinner or similar agents
because they may cause discoloration and scratching.
•
Be especially careful not to damage the electronic and mechanical
components.
Replacing the Ribbon Cartridge
1. Make sure that the printer is turned off for at least 15 minutes.
Pay attention to the print head because it becomes hot during
operation.
2. Open the top printer cover.
3. Slide the ribbon guide out
of the print head. If the
color kit is installed on
the printer, unlock the
white slider pressing and
holding the lever on the
slider towards the back of
the
printer
and
contemporaneously lifting
the slider off the color
mechanism.
