Use only Brother TZ tapes with this machine. Do not use tapes that do not have the
mark.
Do not pull on the tape being fed from the P-touch. This may damage the tape cassette.
Do not use the machine in dusty places, and keep it out of both direct sunlight and rain.
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
•
Do not expose the machine to high temperatures or high humidity. Never leave it on the
dashboard or in the back of your car.
Do not leave any rubber or vinyl on the machine for an extended period of time. Doing
so may cause staining.
Do not clean the machine with alcohol or other organic solvents. Use a soft, dry cloth
only.
Do not put any foreign objects into or anything on the machine.
To avoid injuries, do not touch the cutter’s edge.
Use only the AC adapter (model H) designed exclusively for this machine. Use of any
other adapter will void the warranty.
Do not try to disassemble the AC adapter.
When the machine is not being used for a long period of time and it is not necessary to
keep the text files stored in the memory, disconnect the AC adapter, and remove the batteries to prevent them from leaking and damaging the machine.
When the AC adapter is connected, unplugging the adapter from the electrical outlet
before unplugging it from the machine can delete all text files in the memory, even if batteries are installed.
Use eight AA alkaline batteries in this machine.
BATTERIES
This portable machine can be used anywhere by installing eight (8) AA alkaline batteries.
When you change the batteries, always replace all eight at the same time.
To change the batteries:
1

4
Remove the battery compartment cover on the back of the machine.
If batteries are already installed, remove them.
Insert eight new AA alkaline batteries, making sure that their poles point in the correct
direction.
Attach the battery compartment cover.
☞
Be sure to insert the new batteries within five minutes of removing the old ones,
otherwise the text shown in the display and any text files stored in the memory will
be lost (unless the machine is plugged into an AC outlet with the AC adapter).
Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adapter if you do not intend to use this
machine for an extended period of time. When the power is disconnected, all text
shown in the display and stored in the memory will be lost.
If the batteries are not installed with their positive and negative poles pointing in
the correct direction, the batteries may leak, overheat or explode, or the print head
may overheat.
3
OPTIONAL AC ADAPTER
The AC adapter (model H) allows you to use this machine wherever there is an electrical outlet.
To connect the optional AC adapter:
Insert the plug on the adapter cord into the connector marked DC IN 9.5V on the right
side of the machine.
2 Insert the plug on the adapter into the nearest standard electrical outlet.
☞
Only use the AC adapter designed exclusively for this machine.
Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adapter if you do not intend to use this
machine for an extended period of time. When the power is disconnected, all text
shown in the display and stored in the memory will be lost.
When the AC adapter is connected, unplugging the adapter from the electrical outlet before unplugging it from the machine can delete all text files in the memory,
even if batteries are installed.
It is recommended that you use the AC adapter when printing large fonts or barcodes on 24-mm-wide tape since these operations can quickly drain the batteries.

TAPE CASSETTE
A single TZ tape cassette is supplied with this unit. However, since TZ tape cassettes are available for this machine in a wide variety of colours and sizes, it is possible to make distinctive
colour-coded and stylised labels.
In addition, this machine has been designed to allow you to change the tape cassettes quickly
and easily.
To change the tape cassette:
Lift open the tape compartment cover. The installed cassette is also released.
If a tape cassette is already installed, remove it by pulling it straight up.
If the ink ribbon in the other tape cassette is loose, use your finger to wind the toothed
wheel in the direction of the arrow on the cassette until there is no slack in the ribbon.
Also, make sure that the end of the tape feeds under the tape guides.
☞
If you are using a new tape cassette provided with a stopper, be sure to remove the
stopper.
4 Insert the tape cassette firmly into the tape compartment, making sure that the entire back
of the cassette touches the bottom of the compartment.
☞
When inserting the tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does not catch on
the corner of the metal guide.
5 Close the compartment cover, then turn on the machine if it is off.

ATTACHING LABELS
LAMINATED TAPE
The enclosed stick enables you to easily remove the backing from labels printed on laminated
tapes.
1 Hold the tape in your left hand, with the printed surface facing up, and hold the stick in
your right hand.
2 Pass the tape halfway through the long narrow hole in the stick.
3 Turn the stick three-quarters of a turn towards you and pull the stick away from you as
shown below.
4 Peel off the label backing.

AB
NON-LAMINATED TAPE
Labels printed on non-laminated tapes can be folded in half so that the inside edges of the two
backing pieces come off the label, enabling the backing to easily be peeled off.
6
INSTANT-LETTERING TAPE (RUB-ON TRANSFERS)
Instant-lettering tape is used to transfer your text onto paper. After printing the text onto
instant-lettering tape and cutting off the label, position the label with its non-printed side facing up on a sheet of paper. By simply rubbing the instant lettering tape’s non-printed side with
the enclosed stick, you can transfer the text directly onto the paper.
Hold the tape very firmly and do not move it while rubbing the tape.
☞

IRON-ON TRANSFER TAPE
Iron-on transfer tape is used to transfer your text onto garments using an iron.
1
Insert an iron-on transfer tape cassette, press p to print the text, then hold down
c and press _ to cut off the label.

5
Iron the garment to flatten it before transferring the text.
Place the label on the garment at the location where you wish the text to be transferred.
Set the iron to cotton (150 to 180 ˚C), and then press down on the label with the iron for
about 15 seconds.
Allow the iron-on transfer to cool (for about 60 seconds), and then carefully remove the
backing paper.
☞
White garments made from 100% cotton with a plain (smooth) surface are best for iron-on transfers.
You can also make transfers to garments made from 100% linen or cotton/polyester blends as long
as they have a plain (smooth) surface.
The label will not adhere properly to any cloth with a rough surface, such as pile or
denim, or with a waterproof surface. Heat-sensitive materials, such as nylon, acetate or
other similar fibres, are also unsuitable as they may be damaged when pressing with an
7
iron at a high temperature.
Do not move the iron while pressing, otherwise the label may move out of the desired
position. Press the iron straight down onto the cloth.
After the backing tape has been removed, the transferred label may appear glossy. In
addition, some white spots may have appeared on the label if it was touched while the
backing tape was peeled off. These can be removed by ironing over the label with a
piece of cloth placed between the label and the iron.
Since the transferred label cannot be removed once it is applied, make all transfers with
care.
Washing:
Garments with transfer labels can be washed over 20 times if the label has been transferred
correctly. Normal biological and non-biological household detergents may be used.
The label may become discoloured if the garment is placed in bleach for an extended length
of time.
Be careful that hard objects such as buckles or buttons do not come into contact with the label
during the wash.
Do not dry clean garments which have had transfer labels applied.
Drying:
Garments with transfer labels may be dried either inside or outside out.
Do not tumble dry. The transfers will come off and may stick to other items of clothing.
Ironing:
Iron garments with transfers using normal temperature settings.
Be sure to place a piece of cloth between the iron and the label when you iron over it to prevent the label from sticking to the iron.
CH
P-TOU
The labels are non-toxic, however, please maintain the usual precautions, such as not placing
them in your mouth, etc.
Do not store the tape cassette in areas exposed to direct sunlight, high humidity or dust.
8
FABRIC TAPE
Fabric tape is used to attach a piece of fabric printed with your text onto garments using an
iron. After printing the text onto fabric tape and cutting off the label using scissors, place the
label on an ironed garment at the location where you wish to attach it in such a way that the
printed text can be read correctly. Cover the label with another piece of cloth and use an iron
set to a medium-high temperature (160 to 180 ˚C) to press down firmly for 10 to 15 seconds.
For more details, refer to the instructions included with the fabric tape cassette.
9
PRINT HEAD & ROLLERS
Occasionally, specks of dust or dirt become attached to the machine’s print head and rollers.
This is particularly likely when you are using the unit outdoors or in a very dusty environment.
If a section of the print head is covered with dust, a blank horizontal streak may appear
through the label text. Therefore, as with a tape recorder, the machine’s head may need to be
cleaned from time to time.
To clean the print head and rollers:
Turn off the machine.
Open the tape compartment cover, then remove the tape cassette if one is installed. The
print head and rollers are located in the tape compartment.
3 Print head: Use a dry cotton swab to gently wipe the print head with an up-and-down
motion.
Rollers: Use a dry cotton swab to wipe each roller with an up-and-down motion while
rotating them with your finger.
4 Install a tape cassette, close the tape compartment cover, and then try printing again.
5 If a blank streak still appears in the label, repeat steps 3 and 4 using a cotton swab
dipped in isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.
If none of the above works, contact your service representative.

BARCODE FUNCTION
The Barcode function, which enables barcodes to be printed as part of labels, is one of this
machine’s most advanced features.
☞ This section will explain how to enter a barcode into your text. It is not intended as a
comprehensive introduction to the concept of barcoding. For more detailed information, please consult one of the many reference books available.
Since this machine is not specifically designed for special barcode label-making, some
barcode readers may not be able to read the labels.
Print barcodes with black ink on a white background.
Four different parameters enable you to create custom barcodes.

21 BARCODE and pressing + (OR holding down c and pressing U).
A block can only contain one barcode. If a barcode has already been entered in the
block when + is rotated to select 14/21 BARCODE and + is pressed (OR
c is held down and U is pressed), the error message “1 BARCODE PER
BLOCK!” appears.
To quit the Barcode function without making any changes, hold down c and
press U.
