CX400 is SATO’s latest desktop printer in the “Compact” series. With a 32Bit high-speed RISC processor, it allows for maximum throughput directly
from standard Windows® applications as well as from SATO’s proprietaty
labeling software - SATO Label Galley. With a small footprint, is also has a
2MB internal Flash ROM and 1MB DRAM.
Additional features include a maximum print speed of 4inch/sec and maximum
printing length of 50 inches (without any memory expansion). This new
CX400 also offers a flexible interface module - RS232C and Centronics
interface as a standard and optional interface modules including Ethernet
(10/100BaseT), 100Base-TX LAN adapter (via the parallel port) and USB
adapter.
The CX400 not only boasts of a sleek look with its smooth lines, but also of its
sturdy chassis. Offering a superior print quality, the CX400 is more than
perfect for low volume printing needs. Designed with “ease of usage” in mind,
its wide compartment makes it easy for media loading (5”OD label roll can be
loaded).

Remedy
Review your software setup following the
instructions provided.
Check that the host-to-printer communication cable
is connected and undamaged. If using the serial port,
make sure you are using a null modem cable or
adaptor.
If using the serial port, check that the host and the
printer are of the same parameters. The self-test
label shows the current printer serial port parameters.
If using a communication switch between the host
and printer, remove the switch and connect the
printer directly to the host.
Restart both printer and host, run the original
software, and try again.
Check that the print media is loaded correctly.
Confirm that the gap/mark goes through the media
sensor.
Confirm that the sensor type (Eye-mark or gap) in
the software matches your print media.
Check that the print media is loaded and there is no
side-to-side motion of the paper as it feeds through
the printer.
Check your software print darkness and print speed
settings. These settings may need adjustments for
optimum results.

Troubleshooting
Problem
POWER light not lit
ERROR light is lit or
flashing
Self-test label does
not print
Label does not feed
Remedy
Double check the AC source and the power supply connections.
Disconnect the cable between the printer and host, then restart
the printer. If the POWER light is lit with the host disconnected,
it might be a host computer or cabling problem.
1. If both ERROR and POWER indicators are flashing in
the same direction, it means media error, that is, media
is out or the gap was not found.
2. If ERROR and POWER indicators are flashing in
opposite directions, it means the ribbon is either empty
or not installed.
3. POWER is lit and ERROR is flashing
For ERROR indicator
Longer OFF time, shorter ON time : Cover is open or
there is problem in cover sensor.
Others : If you are using the serial communication,
check the parameters on both printer and host sides.
1. If printing in the thermal mode, confirm that you have
loaded direct thermal media.
2. Disconnect the cable between the printer and the host
computer. Restart the printer and try to print a self-test
label again.
1. Confirm that the print media is loaded correctly.
2. Restart the printer and confirm that the POWER
indicator is lit and ERROR indicator is off. Press the
FEED button.
3. If the printer still does not feed, disconnect the
communication cable and repeat step 2. If the printer
feeds with the cable disconnected, there might be a
problem with the host or cable.

Installation
Remove the CX400 from its packing container. Check to make sure you have the following
items:
Careful considerations must be given when selecting the location to install you’re the printer,
especially environmental conditions. To obtain optimum results from CX400, always try to
operation locations influenced by:
• Direct or bright sunlight, as this will make the label sensor less responsive and may
cause the label to be sensed incorrectly.
• Locations which have extreme temperatures, as this can create electrical problems on
the circuits in the printer.
• The installed location of the printer should ideally be in areas free from dust,
humidity and sudden vibrations.
Consumables
Always use SATO labels in CX400 printer. The use of incorrect material may cause
malfunctions of the printer and void the printer warranty.

Lift the top cover.
Press the two print head releases down to unlock the print head module and expose
the ribbon supply spindles.
Unwrap the new ribbon and unwind 4” from the roll. The end of the ribbon is
attached to a take-up core.
Observe the notches on both end of the supply core and the take-up core. These
notches must fit on the corresponding nibs on both the supply and take-up spindles.
Roll several turns of ribbon on the take-up core. The coated side of the ribbon must
be on the outside of the take-up roll.
Place the left notch of the take-up core into the nib of the left take-up spindle.
Place the right notch of take-up core into the nib of the right take-up spindle.
Pull the ribbon over the print head and insert the supply core onto the left supply
spindle, make sure the notches in the core fit the nibs.
Place the right end of the supply core into the right spindle, lining up the notches with
the spindle nibs.
Turn the take-up spindle to pull the ribbon over the print head. Check to make sure
there are no ribbon wrinkles.
Lower the print head and press it firmly until it locks closed on both sides.
Close the top cover.
Wait until the ERROR stops blinking and becomes OFF, press the FEED to feed a
