Safety Precautions
WARNING
Indicates a potentially
hazardous situation which, if
not avoided, could result in
death or serious injuries.
Follow these guidelines to avoid personal injury, liquid
leakage, burns or heat.
• When the P-touch labeler is not being used, store it out of the reach
of children. In addition, do not allow children to put the P-touch labeler
parts or labels in their mouths. If any object has been swallowed,
seek medical attention.
• Do not touch metal parts around the print head immediately after
printing.
• Do not touch the cutter blade.
• If leaked fluid from batteries gets on your skin or clothes, immediately
rinse them with clean water.
• Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adapter if you do not
intend to use the P-touch labeler.
• Do not use a battery other than that specified. Do not use
combinations of old and new batteries or combinations of different
types, different charging levels, different manufacturers or different
models. Do not insert a battery with its plus and minus ends reversed.
• Do not drop or hit the P-touch labeler/AC adapter.
• Do not press on the LCD display.
• Do not put your finger inside the P-touch labeler when you close the
cassette cover.
• Before using Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, carefully read the
instructions for the batteries and battery charger, and be sure to use
them correctly.
• When using Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, charge the batteries with
a specialized battery charger before using the batteries.
• Always use the specified voltage and the suggested AC adapter for
the P-touch labeler to prevent any damage or failure.
• Do not touch the P-touch labeler during a lightning storm.
• Do not use the P-touch labeler/AC adapter in places of high humidity
such as bathrooms.
• Do not overload the power cord.
• Do not place heavy objects on, or damage the power cord or plug. Do
not forcibly bend or pull the power cord. Always hold the AC adapter
when disconnecting from the power outlet.
• 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 labeler/AC adapter/power plug/batteries to
get wet, for example, by handling them with wet hands or spilling
beverages on 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 labeler/AC adapter/
batteries.
• Do not allow a metal object to contact both the plus and minus ends
of a battery.
• Do not use sharp objects, such as tweezers or a metallic pen, to
change the batteries.
• Do not throw the batteries into fire or expose to heat.
• Disconnect the AC adapter and remove batteries immediately and
stop using the P-touch labeler if you notice abnormal odor, heat,
discoloration, deformation or anything unusual while using or storing
it.
• Do not use a damaged or leaking battery as the fluid may get on your
hands.
• Do not use a deformed or leaking battery or one whose label is
damaged. There is a possibility of generating heat.
With your PT-D200, you can create labels for multiple
applications. Select from the many frames, character sizes
and styles to design beautiful custom labels. In addition, the
variety of tape cartridges available allows you to print labels
with different widths and exciting colors.
Read this manual carefully before starting and keep the
manual in a handy place for future reference.

• Depending on the location, material, and environmental conditions,
the label may unpeel or become irremovable, the color of the label
may change or be transferred to other objects. Before applying the
label, check the environmental conditions and the material.
• Do not use the P-touch labeler in any way or for any purpose not
described in this guide. Doing so may result in accidents or damage
the P-touch labeler.
• Use only Brother TZe tapes with the P-touch labeler. Do not use
tapes that do not have the
mark.
• Only use a soft, dry cloth to clean the labeler; never use alcohol or
other organic solvents.
• Use a soft wipe to clean the print head; never touch the print head.
• Do not put any foreign objects into the tape exit slot or AC adapter
connector or battery compartment, etc.
• Do not place the P-touch labeler/batteries/AC adapter in direct
sunlight or rain, near heaters or other hot appliances, in any location
exposed to extremely high or low temperatures (e.g., on the
dashboard or in the back of your car) or high humidity, or in dusty
locations.
• Do not apply excessive pressure to the cutter lever.
• Do not try to print if the cassette is empty; it will damage the print
head.
• Do not pull the tape while printing or feeding; it will damage the tape
and the P-touch labeler.
• Any data stored in memory will be lost due to failure or repair of the
P-touch labeler, or if the battery expires.
• The P-touch labeler is not equipped with a charging feature for
rechargeable batteries.
• The printed text may differ from the text that appears in the LCD.
• The length of the printed label may differ from the displayed label
length.
• A protective clear plastic sticker is placed over the display during
manufacturing and shipping. This sticker should be removed prior to
use.
• When power is disconnected for more than three minutes, all text,
format settings and any text files stored in the memory will be cleared.

Follow these guidelines to avoid the risk of fire, burns,

Open the cassette cover by pressing the
above indicated area at the top end of the
machine.
Insert six new AAA alkaline batteries
(LR03) or fully charged Ni-MH batteries
(HR03), making sure that their poles
point in the correct directions.
Users of alkaline batteries:
Always replace all six batteries at the
same time with brand new ones.
Users of Ni-MH batteries:
Always replace all six batteries at the
same time with fully charged ones.
If a tape cassette is already installed, remove it by
pulling it straight up. Also, if batteries are already
installed, remove them.
• Make sure that the power is turned off when
replacing batteries or tape cassettes.
Insert a tape cassette, making sure that
it snaps into place.
Securely close the cassette cover, making
sure that it snaps into place.
• Make sure that the end of the tape feeds under
the tape guides.
• Use only Brother TZe tapes with this machine.
When using optional AC adapter
NOTE
1. Insert the plug on the adapter cord into the AC adapter
jack on the top end of the machine.
2. Insert the plug into the nearest standard electrical
outlet.
For memory back up, we recommend using AAA
alkaline batteries (LR03) or Ni-MH batteries (HR03)
together when using the AC adapter.
