CAUTION
Safety Precautions
WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous
situation which, if not avoided,
could result in serious injuries.
Follow these guidelines to avoid the risk of fire, burns, injury,
rupture, overheating, abnormal odor or smoke.
• Do not use the P-touch labeler in places of high humidity such as bathrooms.
• Do not allow the P-touch labeler/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/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.
• 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.
ELECTRONIC LABELING SYSTEM
User’s Guide
English
Español
With your PT-H100, 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 cassette available allows you to print labels with different
widths and exciting colors.
Read this manual carefully before you begin and keep the
manual in a handy place for future reference.
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 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 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.
• 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.
Printed in Philippines

• Do not put any foreign objects into the tape exit slot or battery compartment, etc.
• Do not place the P-touch labeler/batteries 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 the P-touch
labeler.
• Any data stored in memory will be lost due to failure or repair of the P-touch labeler,
or if the battery expires.
• The P-touch labeler is not equipped with a charging feature for rechargeable
batteries.
• 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.
