The interface cable connector is located to the right side, as seen from the front of the upper cover, so that it

does not obstruct the paper feed path.

The front cover is opened when the ribbon cartridge is installed.


Top cover

The separator directs the printed paper to the cut-sheet stand. The separator of the LA36W has bail rollers.

d. Acoustic cover

The acoustic cover helps reduce printing noise.


Control panel

The control panel consists of an LSI, 7 switches, 16 LEDs, and a buzzer. The switches control operations

such as forms loading and feeding, font selection, and conditions selected in setup mode. The LEDs display

printer statuses, the selected font, and a setup menu number. The buzzer sounds to indicate operating and

printer statuses.
