Print Media Types
Important •Dascom strongly recommends the use of Dascom-brand supplies for
continuous high-quality printing.
Your printer can use various types of media:
• Standard media—Most standard (non-continuous) media uses an adhesive backing that sticks
individual labels or a continuous length of labels to a liner.
• Continuous roll media—Most continuous roll media is direct thermal media (similar to FAX paper)
and is used for receipt or ticket style printing.
• Linerless media—Linerless labels have an adhesive backing, but they are wound onto a core
without a liner. The media typically is perforated and may have black marks on the bottom surface of
the media to indicate label separations. The top surface of linerless media labels have a special
coating that keeps the labels from sticking to each other.
• Tag stock—Tags are usually made from a heavy paper (up to 0.0075in./0.19mm thick). Tag stock
does not have adhesive or a liner, and it is typically perforated between tags.
For more information on basic media types, see the following table.
The printer typically uses roll media, but you can use fan-fold or other continuous media too. Use the
correct media for the type of printing you require. You must use direct thermal media.When printing
without a ribbon, you must use direct thermal media. When using ribbon, you must use thermal
transfer media.

Media Type
Non-Continuous
Roll Media
How it looks
User Guide V1.0
Description
Roll media is wound on a core that can be 1 to 1.5
in. (25.4 to 38.1 mm) in diameter. Labels have
adhesive backing that sticks them to a liner, and
they are separated by gaps, holes, notches, or black
marks. Tags are separated by perforations.
Individual labels
are separated by one or more of the following
methods:
• Web media separates labels by gaps, holes, or
notches.
• Black mark media uses pre-printed black marks on
the back side of the media to indicate label
separations.
• Perforated media has perforations that allow the
labels or tags to be separated from each other
easily. The media may also have black marks or
other separations between labels or tags.
Non-Continuous
Fanfold Media
Fan-Fold media is folded in a zigzag pattern. Fanfold
media can have the same label separations as
non-continuous roll media.
The separations would fall on or near the folds.
Continuous Roll
Media
Roll media is wound on a core that can be 1 to 1.5
in. (25.4 to 38.1 mm) in diameter. Continuous roll
media does not have gaps, holes, notches, or black
marks to indicate label separations. This allows the
image to be printed anywhere on the label. A cutter
can be used to cut apart individual labels. With
continuous media, use the transmissive (gap)
sensor so the printer can detect when the media
runs out.

5.4 Cleaning Thermal Print Head


After printing, the print head becomes very hot. Be careful not to touch it
and to let it cool before you clean it.
Do not damage the print head by touching it with your fingers or any hard
object.
 Turn off the printer, open the top cover and remove ribbon, clean the thermal elements of
the print head with a cotton swab moistened with alcohol solvent (ethanol, methanol, or
isopropyl).
 Be gentle with the cleaning so as not to damage the printhead.
 We recommend cleaning the thermal print head periodically (generally every 3 months) to
maintain print quality.
5.5 Maintenance
DL-200 is designed for a long and reliable lifetime. But periodic maintenance is recommended
in order to assure error free working. This also would guarantee the good print quality over the
life time. It is recommended to clean the printer once every six months or after 300 hours duty.
Before cleaning, switch off the printer, wait a few seconds and unplug the power cord.
 Open the cover and remove the dust, paper shreds and other debris from inside by using a
soft vacuum cleaner or a brush.
 In order to remove the dirt, you can wipe clean the machine with a soft cloth dipped in
alcohol instead of the ketone or TEC solvent which may cause damage to the plastic parts.
Please be aware that excessive moisture will lead to the improper functioning of electronic
parts.
 Clean the platen roller with soft cloth.
While you are cleaning the printer, in order to avoid short circuit, do not damage or loose the
cable or electronic parts, do not drop metal material inside, such as Paper Clips or Pins.
