to direct thermal or thermal transfer mode. As such, to use thermal transfer mode, be sure to
install the ribbon, the label, and engage the ribbon mechanism before you switch on the printer.
To use direct thermal mode, install the label and engage the ribbon mechanism before switching
on the printer.
1. Turn off the printer power.
2. Hold down the PAUSE and FEED buttons while turning on the printer power.
3. Do not release the buttons until the three LEDs flash in turn.
Note: When printer initialization is done, please calibrate the gap sensor again.
