THERMAL PRINTER TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE
Symptom
Solution or Reason
READY indicator does not light GREEN. 1. Check the power connections, both at the rear of the
printer and at the wall outlet.
READY indicator lights GREEN, but
printer will not print.
1. Check the interface cable connections from the scale
to the printer.
Printer appears to be working, but
nothing is printed.
1. Verify labels are the correct type (direct thermal).
2. Check that roll is properly loaded (see printer manual
page 4).
Printing is faded or poor quality
1. Ensure front door (cover) is fully closed.
Prints only partial label.
1. Label caught on printhead. Clean print head. Use
ONLY soft plastic to scrape the label from the
printhead. DO NOT USE METAL OBJECTS; printhead
may be permanently damaged.
2. When loading the first (initial) roll of labels, OR when
loading a different size label, approximately one to
three labels will be used to establish the TOF (top of
form) setting. NOTE: The TOF is determined by the
gap between the labels. To check the TOF setting,
press FEED. Only one label should advance.
Printer skips labels.
1. The Label Sensor is missing the gap between the
labels due to one of the following reasons:
A. Operator is holding label backing in an upwards
direction as it exits the printer.
B. The labels are exiting close to an obstruction,
forcing the labels to exit in an upwards direction.
C. The backing is allowed to pile up in front of the
printer, forcing the labels to exit in an upwards
direction.
Printing stops, READY indicator flashes. 1. Printer is out of labels.
Printing stops, READY indicator flashes
for 3 seconds then returns to GREEN.
1. Possible label jam.
2. Communication error. Check interface cable and PRT=
settting in Setup and Calibration.

SERIAL DATA OUT AND WEIGH ON DEMAND FUNCTION
The PC series scale will transmit SMA Level 1 compliant serial weight data when the PRINT key is
depressed or when connected to a host (Weight On Demand). When connected to a host, serial
weight data will be transmitted to the host in a SMA Level compliant format when the host sends the
scale a <If> W <cr> (linefeed, capital W, and a carriage return) or in an alternate format when the
host sends the scale a W (capital W only).
The Weight On Demand feature equires a special serial cable (Cardinal P/N
8529-B305-0A) connected between the scale and host.
SMA Level 1 Compliant Format
When the PRINT key is depressed or the Weight On Demand command (<If> W <cr>) is sent by the
host, the weight data will be transmitted in the following format:
