Follow these guidelines to avoid the risk of fire, burns, injury, electrical shocks,
rupture, overheating, abnormal odours or smoke.
• Always use the specified voltage and AC Adapter (AD-24ES) for your machine to prevent any
damage or failure.
• Do not touch your machine during a thunderstorm.
• Do not use your machine or AC Adapter in places of high humidity such as bathrooms.
• Do not overload the power cord.
• Do not place heavy objects on, or damage your machine, power cord or plug.
Do not forcibly bend or pull the power cord. Always hold the AC Adapter when disconnecting
from the electrical socket.
• Make sure that the plug is fully inserted in the electrical socket. Do not use an outlet that is
loose.
• Do not allow your machine, AC Adapter, power plug, or batteries to get wet, for example, by
handling them with wet hands or spilling beverages on them.
• Do not disassemble or modify your machine, AC Adapter, or batteries.
• Do not allow a metal object to touch 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, remove batteries immediately and stop using your machine if you
notice abnormal odour, heat, discolouration, 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 damaging your machine.
• Since loss of eyesight may result if leaked fluid from batteries gets into your eyes, immediately
rinse your eyes with a large amount of clean water, and then seek medical attention.
CAUTION

allow children to put any label printer 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 your machine.
• Do not use any batteries other than those 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 your machine or AC Adapter.
• Do not put your finger inside your machine when you close the Cassette Cover and the Battery
Cover.
• Before using Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, carefully read the instructions for the batteries and
battery charger, and be sure to use them correctly.
• If using Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, charge the batteries with a specialised battery charger
before using the batteries.
• Do not put your finger inside the Tape Exit Slot. You could be injured by the cutter blade.
• Make sure you use only 6×AAA Alkaline Batteries or rechargeable 6×AAA Ni-MH batteries.
General Precautions
• Depending on the location, material, and environmental conditions, the label may unpeel
or become irremovable, the colour 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 your machine in any way or for any purpose not described in this guide. Doing
so may result in accidents or damage to your machine.
• Use only Brother TZe Tape Cassettes with your machine. Do not use tapes that do not
have the
mark.
• Only use a soft, dry cloth to clean your machine; never use alcohol or other organic
solvents.
• Use a soft wipe to clean the Print Head; never touch the Print Head with your fingers.
• Do not put any foreign objects into the Tape Exit Slot, the AC Adapter connector or battery
compartment, etc.
• Do not place your machine, AC Adapter, or batteries in direct sunlight or rain, near heaters
or other hot appliances, in any location exposed to extremely high or low temperatures (for
example, on the dashboard or in the back of your car), high humidity, or in dusty locations.
• Do not try to print if the cassette is empty; it will damage the Print Head.
• Do not pull the tape while printing or feeding; it will damage the tape and your machine.
• Your machine is not equipped with a charging feature for rechargeable batteries.
• The length of the printed label may differ from the displayed label length on your mobile
device.
• When printing multiple copies of a label, the label printer will not detect the end of the tape
cassette and will continue operating.
• Printed characters may look different than previewed on your device, as your device's
screen may have a higher resolution than the printer.
• Printed small text may not be as clear as it is displayed on your device.
• White and Gold text may not print clearly if you use thin characters.
