LabelWriter Printer Features
Your LabelWriter printer is a direct thermal printer and does not use ink or toner.
Instead, the printer uses heat from a thermal print head to print on specially
treated labels. Labels are the only supplies you will ever need to buy.
The form-feed button on the front of the printer advances a single label. The label
eject button is used to remove labels from the printer when changing rolls.
The LED status light visually shows the current state of the printer:
• Solid blue - power is on and the printer is ready.
• Flashing blue - labels are not loaded properly or label spool is empty.

2 Open the top cover and remove any packing
material inside the label compartment.
3 Remove the label spool from inside the cover.
Figure 7
4 Hold the spool spindle in your left hand and place the
label roll on the spindle so that the labels feed from
underneath and the left edge of the label roll is flush
against the side of the spool. See Figure 7.
5 Place the spool guide onto the right side of the spool
Figure 8
and press the guide tightly against the side of the
label roll, leaving no gap between the roll and the spool. See Figure 8.
NOTE The label roll must fit snugly against both sides of the
label spool, with no gaps, to avoid drifting as the labels feed
through the printer.
6 Insert the label spool into the slot in the printer cover with
the labels extending from underneath the roll. See Figure 9.

7 Align the left edge of the label with the left edge of the

Figure 10.
The printer feeds the labels, stopping at the beginning
of the first label. If the printer does not feed the labels,
make sure the first label is fully inserted and then press
the form-feed button.
