Using the Operation Panel

Most of the functions of this printer are governed by software, but
you can monitor the printer’s status by looking at the lights on the
control panel and for some procedures you will use the buttons.

Feed Button

The feed button is used to feed paper or to start self test and for hexadecimal dump mode.
(See the User’s manual)

Power Indicator Light (Green color)

This indicator light is on when the power is turned on. It blinks when the printer is in the self test
printing standby state. Always wait until this indicator light stops blinking before you start using the
printer and before you turn it off.

Error Indicator Light (Red color)

When this indicator light is on(but not blinking), it means that the printer is out of paper or almost
out of paper or the printer covers are open. When this light blinking, there is an error. If you see
this light blinking, turn off the printer for a few seconds and then turn it back on. If the light is still
blinking, call your supervisor or a service person.

Paper Indicator Light (Red color)

When this indicator light is on, it means that the paper end. Replace the new paper roll.

Self Test

The self test lets you know if your printer is operating properly. It checks the print quality, ROM version, DIP switch
settings, memory switch settings and statistic data. The test is independent of any other equipment or software, so it
is a good idea to run it when you first set up the printer or if you have any trouble. If the self test works correctly, the
problem is in the other equipment or the software, not the printer.

Running the self test

1. Make sure the printer is turned off and the printer cover is closed properly.
2. While holding down the Feed button, turn on the printer and continue to hold until the paper begins to feed. The

self test prints the printer DIP switch settings and memory switch settings. And cuts the paper and pauses.
(The power light blinks.)

3. Press the Feed button to continue printing the statistic data.
4. Press the Feed button to continue printing the rolling ASCII pattern.
5. The self test mode terminates after printing the rolling ASCII pattern automatically.
