When you turn on the P-touch labeling system, the keyboard LCD
unit is also turned on.
The keyboard LCD unit can be installed on the P-touch labeling
system by sliding it on the top cover.
When storing the keyboard LCD unit, turn it upside down and install
it to the top cover to prevent it from becoming dusty or dirty.
You can place the excess cable in the cable holder.
Return the coin cell battery cover to its original position. To install the
coin cell battery cover, use a coin or similar object to slowly turn the coin
cell battery cover in the opposite direction of the arrow on the battery
cover until it stops.
For more information, see the User’s Guide.

When storing or discarding the battery, wrap it (for example with
cellophane tape) to prevent it from short-circuiting.
Cellophane tape
Coin cell battery
We recommend replacing the battery every two years.
Dispose of the batteries at an appropriate collection point, not in the
general waste stream. In addition, be sure to observe all applicable
federal, state, and local regulations.
Make sure your P-touch labeling system is turned off.
Press the cover open button to open the top cover.
Using a coin or similar object, slowly turn the coin cell battery cover in
the direction of the arrow on the battery cover until it stops, and then
remove the coin cell battery cover.
IMPORTANT
If the coin cell battery cover is forcibly turned past the stop position, it
may become damaged.

•
Turn off the P-touch labeling system before disconnecting the AC
adapter.
Do not pull or bend the AC adapter cord and power supply cord.
After the power supply plug is inserted into the AC power outlet, it
may take a few seconds until the
(Power) button is enabled.
NOTE
To safeguard and back up the P-touch labeling system memory, when
the power supply is unplugged it is recommended to leave the
rechargeable Li-ion batteries (PA-BT-4000LI) installed in the P-touch
labeling system.

Up to three hours may be needed to fully charge the battery.
Inserting a Tape Cassette
The TZe tape, FLe label, HGe tape and HSe tube cassettes can be used in
your P-touch labeling system.
IMPORTANT
If the new tape cassette has a cardboard stopper,
be sure to remove the stopper before inserting the

Notes on Using the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery
 Before use, fully charge the battery. Do not use it before it is fully
charged.
 The battery charging must take place in environments between 32°F
and 104°F (0°C and 40°C), otherwise the battery will not charge, and the
(Battery) indicator will remain lit. If the charging stops because the
environment temperature is too low or too high, place the P-touch
labeling system with a temperature between 32°F and 104°F (0°C and
40°C) and try charging again.
 If the P-touch labeling system is used to print, feed, or perform another
operation when both the battery is installed and the AC adapter is
connected, the
(Battery) indicator may turn off and charging may
stop even if the battery is not fully charged.

Rechargeable Li-ion Battery Characteristics
To ensure the highest performance and longest life from the battery:
 Do not use or store the battery in a location exposed to extreme high or
low temperatures as it may discharge more quickly. This may happen
when using a rechargeable Li-ion battery with a high charge (90%
charged or more) in a location exposed to high temperatures.
 Remove the battery when storing the P-touch labeling system for long
periods of time.
 Store a battery with less than a 50% charge in a cool dry place out of
direct sunlight.
 Recharge the battery every six months if it is stored for long periods of
time.
 If you touch a part of the P-touch labeling system while the Li-ion battery
is charging, that part of the P-touch labeling system may feel warm. This
is normal, and the P-touch labeling system may be used safely.
However, if the P-touch labeling system becomes extremely hot,
discontinue use.

When inserting the tape cassette, make sure that the tape and ink
ribbon do not catch on the print head.
Make sure that there is no slack in
the tape. Otherwise the tape may
catch on the protrusion (2) and
become bent or wrinkled, causing
the tape to jam.
To fix the slack in the tape, refer to
the illustration in step 1 and pull
2
the tape outside of the tape guide.
When removing the tape cassette,
make sure that the tape does not catch on the protrusion (2).
Close the top cover.
IMPORTANT
Store tape cassettes in a cool dark location, away from direct sunlight
and high temperature, high humidity, or dusty locations. After opening
the sealed package, use the tape cassette as quickly as possible.

Feeding Tape
IMPORTANT
•
•
•
Be sure to feed tape to remove any slack in the tape and ink ribbon
after inserting the tape cassette.
Do not pull the label when the P-touch labeling system is
ejecting it from the tape exit slot. Doing so will cause the ink ribbon
to be discharged with the tape. The tape may no longer be functional
after the ink ribbon discharges.
Do not block the tape exit slot during printing or when feeding tape.
Doing so will cause the tape to jam.

The Feed and Cut function feeds approximately 22.3 mm of blank tape, and
then cuts the tape.

Solution
The label is not printed.
• Check that text has been entered and that
the tape cassette is installed correctly with
sufficient tape remaining.
• If the tape is bent, cut off the bent section and
thread the tape through the exit slot or tape
guides.
• When printing from a computer or mobile device,
