[Inside a car, where there is heat exposure, in a place that receives direct sun light or close to room heaters

[In a place with high temperature or humidity, in a place with low temperature or humidity or in a place that experiences severe changes of temperature or humidit

[In a place where the unit will be exposed to dust.

[In a place where it is likely to come in contact with water or liquids.

– 3 –

During Operation

1Usage of printing paper other than that suggested herein will produce poorer quality printouts and reduce the life of the print head (the part that prints the letter).

2To prevent damage to the print head, do not allow the printer to print without any paper in the unit (empty print). Do not put down the paper depress lever (lowering the

print head) and turn the roller knob. The hot print head can melt the roll and the friction can damage the print head.

3 Do not hit the print head with a hard or sharp object or rub it in any way.

4When not using the printer for extended periods of time put the paper depressor bar in the upright position so that it is away from the roller.

If the paper depressor bar is left down it may deform the roller.

5If dew gathers on the printer, be sure to wipe the print head before use. If you do not do this the print head will be damaged.

6

When pulling paper out of the printer, always lift the paper depressor bar beforehand.

 

If you pull the paper out with the bar down the printer head and the motor may be

 

damaged.

7

Depending on the paper, the darkness and contrast of the print will vary. When the

 

contrast is too dark or too light, please make adjustments at the printer contrast setting

 

command in the Command Reference.

8

When using copy paper, please set the paper type to 2 copies paper at the print paper

 

setting command in the command reference.

9

When using the printer in the copy paper mode, sometimes the first page and the

 

second slip to the wrong place, and the print becomes scratchy, in this case please

 

print one more time from the beginning.

10When printing directly after turning the paper feed knob, some dots in the first line will be crushed. To avoid this, turn the knob slightly in the opposite direction, or press the Paper Feed button (FEED) to feed a little more paper before printing.
