DYMO 6000 Electronic Labelmaker

Introduction Thank you for choosing the Dymo 6000 Electronic Labelmaker. This machine enables you to create a wide variety of high quality self-adhesive labels in numerous colour combinations.

Facilities are arranged so that simple labels can be created quickly and easily, whilst more advanced features are available using additional key operations.

Tape cassettes are available in Clear, White, Red, Blue, Yellow or Green in widths 6mm (´"), 12mm (œ") or 19mm (®"), with ink ribbon cassettes available in Black, Red or Blue.

Special features of model 6000 Labelmaker include:

• Normal, bold or italic text from the standard Helvetica font.

• Text can be arranged horizontally,

v e r t i c a l l y

,

underlined , outline or within a line box or a mix of these on any label.

Creation of bar code labels (to a number of bar code standards), with or without accompanying text.

Power is supplied from internal re-chargeable batteries or from an external AC adaptor (supplied).

Labels can be up to four lines deep, with automatic re-sizing of the text to fit the width of label selected.

Text can be ranged to the left, right or centred on the label.

Automatic label cut-off.

Labels are tab-cut for easy removal from the backing tape.

Multiple tab cut labels can be produced, enabling a string of labels to be be created for removal and fixing ‘off the roll’.

Auto shut-off facility removes power after one minute to conserve battery power if the machine is standing idle.

Preparing for use

Unpacking

Remove the Labelmaker from the packaging carefully; observe any

 

 

warnings or packaging information. Retain all packaging for

 

 

possible future use.

Power Supply

The internal batteries will have been partially charged during

 

 

manufacture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT: For maximum battery life, the internal batteries

 

 

 

should be charged for AT LEAST 24 hours before using the

 

 

 

machine on battery power for the first time.

 

 

 

Connect the round plug from the AC adaptor into the power input

 

 

 

socket on the Labelmaker (see Fig. 1), then plug the AC adaptor

 

 

 

into a convenient wall socket. Switch on at the wall socket and

 

 

 

leave it on charge for AT LEAST 24 hours.

 

 

 

You can use the Labelmaker with power from the AC adaptor

 

 

 

during the initial 24-hour charging period.
