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 insert-
ing it into the unit.
(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.
® When inserting a tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does
not get caught on the corner of the metal securing stand,

closed.
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 hy 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 “BATTERY WEAK!” is displayed, replace the six batteries.
© Alkaline batteries are recommended.
@ An optional AC Adaptor is available. (Model AD-30 : 7V, 1.2A)
® When replacing batteries, do so in three minutes or less. Otherwise,
unless an optional AC Adaptor is attached, any message in 1 the work-
ing area or Phrase Memory will be lost.
e Note the following details when 1.2 V rechargeable NiCd batteries
are used in this machine.
(1) “BATTERY WEAK!” or “BATTERY EMPTY!” 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.

CODE KEY
By holding down the CODE key and pushing the appropriate key, you can use
the functions written in green characters on the PT-320 or blue characters on the
PT-340.
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

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 char-
acter 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
orange. To type a symbol located on the right side of a key, hold down the ALT
key and press the key on which the desired symbol is marked.

sage, 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.
