With your PT-D200, you can create labels for multiple
applications. Select from the many frames, character sizes and
styles to design beautiful custom labels. In addition, the variety
of tape cartridges available allows you to print labels with
different widths and exciting colors.
Read this manual carefully before starting and keep the manual
in a handy place for future reference.
• Always use the specified voltage and the suggested AC adapter (AD-24ES) for the
P-touch labeler to prevent any damage or failure.
• Do not touch the P-touch labeler during a lightning storm.
• Do not use the P-touch labeler/AC adapter in places of high humidity such as
bathrooms.
• Do not overload the power cord.
• Do not place heavy objects on, or damage the power cord or plug. Do not forcibly
bend or pull the power cord. Always hold the AC adapter when disconnecting from
the power outlet.
• Make sure that the plug is fully inserted to the power outlet. Do not use an outlet that
is loose.
• Do not allow the P-touch labeler/AC adapter/power plug/batteries to get wet, for
example, by handling them with wet hands or spilling beverages on to them.
• Since loss of eyesight may result when leaked fluid from batteries gets into your eyes,
immediately rinse your eyes with a large amount of clean water, and then seek
medical attention.
• Do not disassemble or modify the P-touch labeler/AC adapter/batteries.
• Do not allow a metal object to contact both the plus and minus ends of a battery.
• Do not use sharp objects, such as tweezers or a metallic pen, to change the batteries.
• Do not throw the batteries into fire or expose to heat.
• Disconnect the AC adapter and remove batteries immediately and stop using the
P-touch labeler if you notice abnormal odor, heat, discoloration, deformation or
anything unusual while using or storing it.
• Do not use a damaged or leaking battery as the fluid may get on your hands.
• Do not use a deformed or leaking battery or one whose label is damaged. There is a
possibility of generating heat.
Follow these guidelines to avoid personal injury, liquid leakage,
burns or heat.
• When the P-touch labeler is not being used, store it out of the reach of children. In
addition, do not allow children to put the P-touch labeler parts or labels in their
mouths. If any object has been swallowed, seek medical attention.
• Do not touch metal parts around the print head immediately after printing.
• Do not touch the cutter blade.
• If leaked fluid from batteries gets on your skin or clothes, immediately rinse them with
clean water.
• Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adapter if you do not intend to use the
P-touch labeler.
• Do not use a battery other than that specified. Do not use combinations of old and
new batteries or combinations of different types, different charging levels, different
manufacturers or different models. Do not insert a battery with its plus and minus
ends reversed.
• Do not drop or hit the P-touch labeler/AC adapter.
• Do not press on the LCD display.
• Do not put your finger inside the P-touch labeler when you close the cassette cover.
• Before using Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, carefully read the instructions for the
batteries and battery charger, and be sure to use them correctly.
• When using Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, charge the batteries with a specialized
battery charger before using the batteries.
General Precautions
• Depending on the location, material, and environmental conditions, the label may
unpeel or become irremovable, the color of the label may change or be transferred
to other objects. Before applying the label, check the environmental conditions and
the material.
• Do not use the P-touch labeler in any way or for any purpose not described in this
guide. Doing so may result in accidents or damage the P-touch labeler.
• Use only Brother TZe tapes with the P-touch labeler. Do not use tapes that do not
have the
mark.
• Only use a soft, dry cloth to clean the labeler; never use alcohol or other organic
solvents.
• Use a soft wipe to clean the print head; never touch the print head.
• Do not put any foreign objects into the tape exit slot or AC adapter connector or
battery compartment, etc.
