IMPORTANT Be sure to insert the new battery with the + and – sides facing the correct direction. 5. NOTE • • • 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. Connecting the Power Supply AC Adapter Use the AD9100ESA (AC adapter) for this P-touch labeling system. Connect the AC adapter directly to the P-touch labeling system. 1. 2. Insert the plug on the AC adapter cord into the AC adapter outlet marked DC IN 24 V on the P-touch labeling system. Insert the plug on the power supply cord into the AC adapter. Installing the Coin Cell Battery A coin cell battery is used as a backup power supply to maintain the settings for the internal clock of the keyboard LCD unit. The battery will be consumed even if the P-touch labeling system is not used for a long period of time. 1 2 IMPORTANT • 3. (Battery insulation example) 1 2 1 2 • • 1. 2. 3. 1 2 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. AC adapter Power supply cord Insert the power supply plug into a standard AC power outlet. IMPORTANT • • • 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. Using the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery Installing the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery 1. 2. 3. 4. Press and hold the system. (Power) button to turn off your P-touch labeling Open the battery cover on the bottom of the P-touch labeling system. Insert the battery into the battery compartment. Close the battery cover. Removing the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery Press and hold the (Power) button to turn off the P-touch labeling system. Remove the battery cover and the battery, and then reattach the battery cover. Charging the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery NOTE • • 1. 2. Before use, fully charge the battery. 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 cassette. Make sure the battery is installed in the P-touch labeling system. Use the AC adapter and power supply cord to connect the P-touch labeling system to an AC power outlet. Press the (Power) button to turn on the P-touch labeling system if it is not on already. 1. The (Battery) indicator lights in orange during charging, and it goes off when the battery is fully charged. Check that the end of the tape is not bent and that it passes through the tape guides. If it does not, pass it through the tape guides as shown in the illustration. 1 1 2 2 1 1 2 2 1 2 AC adapter Power supply cord NOTE 2. 3. Although the charging stops if the P-touch labeling system is used to print, feed, or perform another operation, the charging will start again automatically after the operation is finished if the charging is not completed. End of tape Tape guides (The actual shape may be different depending on the tape width.) Press the cover open button to open the top cover. Carefully insert the tape cassette into the tape cassette compartment with the end of the tape facing the P-touch labeling system’s tape exit slot, then push down evenly until the tape cassette is installed correctly. Stopping Rechargeable Li-ion Battery Charging To stop the battery charging, disconnect the AC adapter. 1 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. 1 IMPORTANT • • 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. Tape exit slot • 4. 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. Turning Power On/Off On: Press the (Power) button to turn on the P-touch labeling system.

Printing Problems Problem 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, make sure the computer or mobile device is connected correctly to the P-touch labeling system. The label is not printed correctly. • Remove the tape cassette and reinstall it, pressing it firmly until it locks into place. • If the print head is dirty, clean it with a cotton swab or optional print head cleaning cassette (TZe-CL6). The tape is jammed. • If the tape is jammed, remove the tape cassette from the P-touch labeling system. • Check the tape cassette compartment and tape exit slot for tape scraps, jammed tape or debris that may prevent the tape from correctly exiting the machine. Remove if present. • Examine the tape cassette and cut away any damaged tape that is present past the tape guides on the tape cassette. • Check that the end of the tape is not bent and that is passes through the tape guides. For more information, see section Inserting a Tape Cassette of this guide. • Insert the tape cassette into the tape cassette compartment. Visit our website (www.brother.com/inst) and download the installer for the software and manuals.
