Please read this guide, including all Precautions, before using
this machine. After reading this guide, keep it in a safe place.
• Always use the specified voltage and the suggested AC Adapter (AD-24ESA) for the
P-touch ribbon/tape printer to prevent any damage or failure.
• Do not touch the P-touch ribbon/tape printer during a lightning storm.
• Do not use the P-touch ribbon/tape printer / AC Adapter in places of high humidity

• 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 ribbon/tape printer / AC Adapter / power plug / batteries 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 ribbon/tape printer / AC Adapter /
batteries.
• Do not allow a metal object to contact both the plus and minus ends of a battery.
