when turning “OFF”.
(4) SEL / ALARM Lamp
This lights up when the printer is in SELECT state
(ON-LINE) and goes out when in DESELECT state (OFFLINE). The printer can print out the data only when this
lamp is on.
This lamp may blink on the following occasions.
a) When the paper roll in coming to near-end, the SEL / ALARM lamp keeps
blinking at interval of 1.0 second.
In this case, change the roll paper.
b) When the printer is in alarm state, this lamp keeps blinking at interval of
1/4 second.
Remove the cause for alarm and press the SEL switch.
(or re-switch the power on)
(5) LF Switch
Paper feeding is performed when this switch is pressed
(in DESELECT status only), this is used when inserting the
paper and for spacing up etc.
(6) SEL Switch
When this switch is pressed, the printer enters SELECT
(ON-LINE) status. When pressed again, the printer enters
DESELECT (OFF-LINE) status.
This switch is also used when clearing an alarm condition.
And if this switch is pressed when printing, the printer
enters DESELECT status, after all the data in the buffer is
printed.
(7) I/F Connector
Connects through a cable to a computer etc. Please be
certain that power to both the printer and the computer are
turned off when connection is made.
(8) Cash Drawer Connector
To be used to control the P.O.S. cash drawer.
(9) Printer Cover
Open when replacing the Ribbon Cassette.

To insert the ribbon, disconnect the power source beforehand. If the printer has been
printing for many hours, be careful not to touch the printer head as it might be hot.
1) Remove the printer cover
2) While inserting the ribbon into the space between the print head and the ribbon guide,
press the cassette into the holder unit it clicks into place. (Ref. to Fig. 4&5)
3) Turn the cassette ribbon knob in the direction of the arrow to take up slack in the ribbon.

1) Remove the printer cover
2) Set the imprint face of the paper downward and put into the paper entrance.
3) If necessary to adjust the sprocket-wheel’s position, free the wheels using the lever on both
sides. Slide them to the appropriate position, and lock them back.
4) Hook some of the paper’s perforations on the sprockets and forward the paper into the printer
mechanism by pulling and turning the paper-feed knob until the paper’s tip reaches the platen.

6-6. Self Test Printing
Your printer has a built in self print function for purpose of checking print operation without
the need for any other external device.
Procedures for Actuating the Print Function
1) Be sure that a paper roll is properly loaded.
2) Confirm that the ribbon cassette is properly installed and turn the power switch off.
3) Turn the power switch ON while pressing the LF switch, and release the LF switch after the self
test operation has begun.
In the above operation, the self print function will stop automatically when completed.
However, the self print function will not operate without paper.
6-7. Alarm and Paper Near-End Detection
This printer has the paper near-end sensor to stop the operation when the paper comes to near-end,
sending out both BUSY and FAULT signals. This status is indicated by the SEL / ALARM lamp
blinking at an interval of 1.0 second.
7. Input Buffer Back-up Function
7-1. Input Buffer Back-up
If the power is turned off, or there is a power failure during printing, the data in the input buffer will
be retained. When the power comes back on, the power failure symbol (…..PD) will be printed,
and then the data which was interrupted will be printed from the beginning of the line where the
interruption occurred.
Note: The input buffer back-up function may not operate properly if the related capacitor is not
sufficiently charged. This may be the case if the printer has not been operated for a long period of
time. After the printer power switch has been turned on for 10 minutes, the buffer back-up should
be effective for approximately 24 hours or more.
7-2. Clearing the Input Buffer
In case it is desired to delete the data in the input buffer, the power switch should be turned on
while pressing the SEL switch. When deletion of the buffer is completed the buzzer will sound.
Please be sure to continue pressing the SEL switch until that time.
If the printer fails to work properly at the time the power switch is turned on, please delete the input
buffer as described above before inputting new data.

8-3-4. Data Receiving Control
Your printer is able to receive data sent from the host side when the BUSY signal is LOW,
but unable to receive when the BUSY signal is HIGH.
8-3-5. Buffering
1) N Type
Your printer is provided with a two line input buffer.
2) B Type
Your printer is provided with a 7K byte input buffer. This makes possible a large amount of data
buffering. And therefore, the host side is free immediately after data transmission.

9-3. Description of Input / Output Signals
9-3-1. Input / Output Signals
a) RD:
This is the serial signal for received data. When framing, overrun or parity errors occur,
the data is converted into (7FH).
b) DTR:
Please write in data or commands when this signal is in a “ready” state. If written in when in
a BUSY state, an overrun error will occur and the data will be ignored. Data can be written into the
input buffer even during printing. Further, a BUSY signal is generated when the power is turned on,
while test printing, when ONLINE and during reset.
c) FAULT:
When there is a problem in the printer mechanism the FAULT signal will be issued, and all control
circuits will be interrupted. To RESET this signal, first correct the cause of trouble in the printer
mechanism. Then, by pressing the SEL switch or by inputting “0” (LOW LEVEL) at the RESET
terminal, the FAULT can be cleared.
Causes of the FAULT signal are lack of paper and errors in the printer mechanism. Printer errors
include such as, the print head stopping during print operation of failure of the print head to return
to the home position.
d) RESET:
This signal resets the entire printer.
e) PE:
This signal is output when the paper roll is near the end.
f) TD (Valid only for type B):
When receiving data signals, and when the printer’s input buffer has less than 1K bytes remaining
open, the DC3 code (13H) is issued, indicating that receipt of data is not possible. When the data in
the input buffer is reduced to 2K bytes, the DC1 (11H) code is issued, which indicates that data
receipt is possible.
g) FG:
Frame Ground
h) GND:
Common ground for all circuits.

9-3-2. Data Composition
[1] Start bit
[2] Data bits (and parity bit)
[3] Stop bit (1 bit or more)
1) Start bit
1/2 bit past the line dropping from MARK to SPACE, a status reading is taken again.
If the reading is SPACE, a start bit is recognized, but if it is MARK, it is not taken as a start bit.
This is not regarded as an error, but the search for the start bit is performed once again.
2) Data bit and parity bit
Data bits and parity bits are the data of the bits in question, which are represented by the state at the
time sampling is performed. This is accomplished at time intervals equal to one bit in length,
beginning from the middle of the start bit. The order of the bits is starting with the bit closest to the
start bit, bit-0, bit-1…..., parity bit. (Note: data bits are based on “one point sampling”.)
3) Stop bit
The stop bit consists of one or more bits at “mark” level. When “space” level is detected for a stop
bit, a framing error occurs.
9-3-1
Error Detection
The printer detects Parity, Framing and Overrun Error. When any error is detected, the data is
converted into (7FH).
1) Framing Error
Framing error occurs when SPACE signal is checked out at STOP BIT.
And the data is converted into (7FH).
2) Parity Error
When parity check is designated and if the parity error is detected, the data is converted into (7FH).
3) Overrun error
When an overrun error is detected, the data is converted into (7FH).
4) Other errors
When trouble is detected in the printer mechanism, the SEL / ALARM lamp goes on, the buzzer is
sounded, the FAULT signal is output, and the DTR signal becomes BUSY. After the cause of the
trouble has been corrected, the SEL / ALARM lamp can be turned off by pressing the SEL switch
or by making RESET = “0”. When the printer is put ONLINE, data receiving restarts.

9-3-4. Data Receiving Control
When the BUSY signal is LOW, your printer receives data from the host side, but when this signal
is HIGH, it cannot receive data.
9-3-5. Buffering
Data transfer to the input buffer is controlled by the DTR and TD signals.
Please refer to 9-3-1 b) for the DTR signal and 9-3-1 f) for the TD signal.

and n1 is the remainder.) When data is received only for numbers specified by n1 and n2, printing
and line feed are carried out automatically, and the bit image mode is cancelled.
However, since “half-dots” are being used, the next corresponding pin cannot print at the same
time.
Further, the maximum value of n1 and n2 is the number contained in one line, and this cannot be
