6. Description of Functions of Each Section

6-1. Printer Initialization Operation

When the power is turned on, after the hardware completes initialization, the printer performs a thermal head check (checking for disconnected wires). While the thermal head check is in progress, the Error LED flashes at one second intervals and the printer beeps intermittently. When the Error LED turns off and the beeping stops, the printer has completed the initialization operation.

6-2. Setting the DIP Switches the Rear of the Printer (Setting the

SCSI ID)

1. Setting the SCSI ID

The SCSI ID is set through the DIP switches on the rear of the printer.

When the printer is shipped from the factory, the SCSI ID is set to "2".

When connecting just the printer, or when "2" is not the SCSI ID of any other

SCSI device, there is no need to change the setting of the SCSI ID on the printer.

If the SCSI ID of another SCSI device is also "2," it is necessary to set the SCSI

IDs so that each device has a unique SCSI ID.

Electrical requirements

The transmission system is considered to be a single-end system, and the electrical requirements concerning the SCSI bus I/O characteristics and timing characteristics conform with SCSI (Small Computer System Interface -

ANSI X3.131-1986 and JIS X 6051-1990/ISO 9316-1989).

However, the operating characteristics are stipulated only for the case where the printer is a target. The printer supplies terminator power.
