4. Self Test
The self-test result indicated whether the printer is operating properly. Also with this, user can check
following options or status of the printer.





Control circuit
Printer mechanism
Printing quality
ROM version
Interface setting
This test is independent of any other equipment or software.
Running the self test
1. Make sure the printer is turned off and the printer cover is closed properly before performing the self test
2. Turn the printer on holding the FEED button, then the self-test will start. The self-test prints the printer
setting value and then prints the following, and pauses. (Error LED On)
SELECT MODE BY BUTTON
1. ASCII PRINT
2. SELECT BAUDRATE MODE
3. HEXADUMP MODE
3. Press the FEED button consecutively (1~3)
※ 1. ASCII PRINT
(press the FEED button once)
2. SELECT BAUDRATE MODE
(press the FEED button twice)
3. HEXADUMP MODE
(press the FEED button triple time)
Printing test page
constructed with ACII code.
Set the speed of Serial Interface
(You can set the BAUDRATE in
this mode)
Printing the HEX value received
from the interface
♣Wait for 5~6 seconds if you want to exit. Printer performs a cutting when exiting this mode
4. The printer is ready to receive data after finishing setting.

5. ASCII Print
ASCII PRINT is printing a test page constructed ASCII code. You can able to check the printer works
properly with this
The ASCII PRINT test automatically ends and cuts the paper after printing the following:
*** Completed ***
The printer is ready to receive data as soon as it completes the ASCII PRINT.
6. Select Baudrate Mode
After entering the BAUDRATE MODE, the list which can select the BPS will be printed. Similar like Self Test,
you can press the FEED button to select a BAUDRATE.
Once the input performs properly, the printer shows a result and store.
The printer is ready to receive data as soon as it completes the SELECT BAUDRATEMODE.
SELECT BAUDRATE BY BUTTON
1. 9600bps
2. 19200bps
3. 38400bps
4. 115200bps

7. Hexadecimal Dump
This feature allows experienced users to see exactly what data is coming to the printer. This can be
useful in finding software problems.
When you go into the hex dump function, the printer prints all commands and other data in
hexadecimal format along with a guide section to help you find specific commands.
To use the hex dump feature, follow these steps
1. Please turn printer off.
2. Please turn printer on while press down “Feed” button.
3. Press the FEED button three times when the Self Test printed.
4. Now printer had entered into Hexa dump mode.
5. Run any software program that sends data to the printer. The printer prints ”Hexadecimal printing
mode…” and then all the codes it receives in a two-column format. The first column contains the
hecadecimal codes and the second column gives the ASCII characters that correspond to the codes.
Hecadecimal Dump
1B 21 00 1B 26 02 40 40 .!..& . @ @

2. Regarding print head cleaning, as the print head is very hot during printing, turn off the printer
power and wait approximately 10 minute before start.
3. When cleaning the print head, take care not to touch the heated part of the print head.
The print head subject to be damaged by static electricity.
4. Take care not to allow the print head to become scratched and /or damaged in any way.
1. Use an applicator swab moistened with an alcohol solution to clean the print head and remove
any dusts.
2. Once the cleaning is completed, insert paper roll into the printer few minutes later and close
the printer cover.
♣Preventing Overheating
