Part 1 - Getting Acquainted
This part of the manual provides you with important general information
about your printer.
About the Bundled CD-ROM and CD-R
Note the following precautions whenever handling or storing the bundled CD-
ROM and CD-R.
Handling Precautions
• When handling the disc, avoid getting finger smudges, dirt, scratches, etc.
on either of its surfaces.
• Should the disc become dirty, use an eyeglass cleaning cloth or some other
soft cloth to wipe it lightly from the center of the disc outwards towards its
edge. Never use phonograph record cleaner or any other cleaning agent.
• Never write on either of the disc’s surfaces with a pen or pencil, or affix a
sticker to the disc surfaces.
• Use of a disc that is cracked or deformed, or a disc that has adhesive on it
is dangerous. Never use such a disc.
Storage Precautions
• Avoid storing discs in areas subjected to high temperature, high humidity,
or direct sunlight.
• When you are not using a disc, store it in its original case or in a commercially
available CD case.
• Avoid storing a disc so its label comes in direct contact with the surface of a
vinyl case, bag, etc.
Warning!
Never play a CD-ROM disc on any device that is not specifically designed to
play back CD-ROM discs. Audio output at a high volume setting creates the
risk of damaged hearing and damage to audio speakers.

Part 2 - Getting Ready
This part of the manual tells you how to load and replace batteries, how to
load the ink ribbon cassette, and how to perform other basic setups before
using the printer.
Power Requirements
You can power your printer using the optionally available AC adaptor (AD-
A12280L) or eight AA-size alkaline batteries.
Using Batteries
This section explains how to set up the printer for operation under battery
power.
Low battery at power up
If the printer detects low battery power when you turn it on, it displays the
message “LOW BATTERY” for about one second.
Low battery at the start of a print operation
The message shown below appears when low battery power is detected at
the start of a print operation.
When the above message appears, replace the batteries or use the optional
AC adaptor for power.
• If the print operation is the first one after turning on the printer, you need to
press SET in order to proceed with the print operation.
• If the print operation is not the first one after turning on the printer, the above
message will appear for one second, and then the print operation will start
automatically.
Important!
Replace batteries at least once a year, even if the low battery message does
not appear during that time.
To load batteries into the printer
1. Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction indicated by the arrow
in the illustration, and open the cover.
2. Pull the battery case from the compartment.
Important!

Battery Life
• A set of fresh batteries should supply enough power to print about 200
disc labels (at 20˚C (68˚F), one print operation per disc).
• Printing text or graphics that have a lot of black areas, or printing under
low temperatures shortens battery life.

Important!
• See the separate “Printing Precautions” sheet for important information about
printing conditions.
• Do not try to use this printer to print on a mini CD-R or a CD-R business
card. Doing so can damage the printer. Use the printer to print on 12cm
discs only.
• We recommend that you print on a disc or other media before you record
anything on it. Printing on a disc that already has data recorded on it can
cause the data to become corrupted.
Check your label before you print it!
Pressing the PREVIEW button at any time during text input or before
you actually start printing will display a preview of your label. For details,
see page 47.
Important!
Make sure there is nothing in front of the printer to interfere with the movement
of the disc tray.

Part 6 - Controlling the Appearance
of your Text
The operations in this section explain how to select fonts, how to bold text,
and how to align text.
• In this manual, the font, bolding, and text alignment are all referred to as
text attributes.
Important!
• Text attributes affect printed text only. The characters on the display do
not change.
• Whenever you replace a character with another one, the new character
also picks up the attributes of the original character.
Selecting a Font
Your printer gives you a choice of the following five fonts.
• New Sans-serif (SANS-SERIF)
• New Sans-serif Italic (SANS-SERIF ITC)
• New Sans-serif Rounded (SANS-SERIF RND)
• New Roman (ROMAN)
• New Roman Italic (ROMAN ITC)
You can specify a font for all the text or for a specific line of text. You can even
specify a default font that is used automatically whenever you create a new
label.
The current font setting is indicated by the pointer along the right side of the
display.
About SMALL FONT
In addition to the five user-selectable fonts, the printer also has a “SMALL
FONT,” which is used automatically whenever the character size is 2mm, re-
gardless of the current font setting.
Note that you cannot select the font size. The printer selects font sizes and the
SMALL FONT setting automatically.
Note
The proportional setting (page 45) is ignored while the SMALL FONT is being
used.
