Part 2 Getting Ready
This part of the manual tells you how to load batteries and the tape cartridge,
and how to perform other basic setups for the Label Printer.
Important!
• Be sure to read this section before attempting to use the Label Printer.
Power Supply
The Label Printer can run on six AA-size alkaline batteries. Be sure to use
alkaline batteries only.
Replacing Batteries
A handy low battery power indicator lets you know when battery power is getting
too low for proper operation. The message “LOW BATTERY!” appears on the
display if battery power is low when you perform any of the following operations.

• Execute a print operation
Whenever the “LOW BATTERY!” message appears, press SET to clear it from
the display. You should still be able to perform some Label Printer operations,
but some power intensive operations (like printing) may become impossible if
battery power is too low. In any case, you should replace batteries as soon as
possible after the “LOW BATTERY!” message appears.
Important!
• All data stored in memory is deleted whenever batteries go dead and when
you replace batteries. Be sure to keep written backup copies of all important
data (text and documents).
• Batteries can burst or leak and damage your unit if you do not use them
correctly. Note the following important points.
• Be sure that the plus (+) and minus (–) sides of each battery are facing correctly.
• Never mix batteries of different types.
• Never leave dead batteries in the Label Printer.
• Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use the Label Printer for a long
time.

Character Size
There are two methods you can use to set the character size: AUTO and
MANUAL. With AUTO, character size is set automatically in accordance with
the tape size you are using and the number of lines you are printing. MANUAL
lets you set the character size manually.
The following table shows how AUTO decides which character size to use.
Number of lines/tape size
The following table shows the 24 characters sizes that are available with MANUAL
size setting.
Character size changes are applied to printed text only.The size of the displayed
text does not change.
Important!
• The character size setting is applied to all of the characters within the block.
You cannot make multiple specifications for specific characters.
• The maximum character size you can print depends on the size of the tape
you have loaded in the Label Printer and the number of lines of text you are
printing. If the character size you specify is greater than the maximum
characters size limit, the Label Printer automatically adjust your text vertically
to fit as shown in the tables below.The message “TOO MANY LINES!” appears
on the display when the character size has been adjusted.
