User’s Guide
English
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 colours.
Read this manual carefully before you begin and keep the
manual in a handy place for future reference.

• Always use the specified voltage and the recommended AC adapter (AD-24ES) for
the P-touch labeller to prevent any damage or failure.
• Do not touch the P-touch labeller during a lightning storm.
• Do not use the machine/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 carefully when
disconnecting from the power outlet.
• Make sure that the plug is fully inserted in the power outlet. Do not use an outlet that
is loose.
• Do not allow the machine/AC adapter/power plug/batteries to get wet, for example,
by handling them with wet hands or spilling beverages onto 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 labeller/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, remove batteries immediately and stop using the
machine if you notice abnormal odour, 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.
Indicates a potentially hazardous
situation which, if not avoided, may
result in minor or moderate injuries.
Follow these guidelines to avoid personal injury, liquid
leakage, burns or heat.
• When the machine is not being used, store it out of the reach of children. In
addition, do not allow children to put machine parts or labels in their mouths. If any
object has been swallowed, seek medical attention.
• Do not touch metal parts near the print head immediately after printing.
• Do not touch the cutter blade.
• If leaked fluid from batteries gets onto 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 labeller.
• 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 labeller/AC adapter.
• Do not press on the LCD display.
• Do not put your finger inside the machine when you close the back 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 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 the P-touch labeller in any way or for any purpose not described in this
guide. Doing so may result in accidents or damage to the machine.
• Use only Brother TZe tapes with the P-touch labeller. Do not use tapes that do not
have the
• Only use a soft, dry cloth to clean the labeller; 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.
• Do not place the P-touch labeller/batteries/AC adapter in direct sunlight or rain,
near heaters or other hot appliances, in any location exposed to extremely high
or low temperatures (e.g., on the dashboard or in the back of your car) or high
humidity, or in dusty locations.
• Do not apply excessive pressure to the cutter lever.
• 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 machine.
• Any data stored in memory will be lost due to failure or repair of the P-touch
labeller, or if the battery expires.
• The P-touch labeller is not equipped with a charging feature for rechargeable
batteries.
• The printed text may differ from the text that appears on the LCD.
• The length of the printed label may differ from the displayed label length.
• A protective clear plastic sticker is placed over the display during manufacturing
and shipping. This sticker should be removed prior to use.
• When power is disconnected for more than three minutes, all text, format settings
and any text files stored in the memory will be cleared.
