Chapter 2: Setting Up and Using the Printer
Choosing a Location
The 7156 printer takes up relatively little counter space and may be set on or near
the host computer. Make sure there is enough room to open the receipt cover to
change the paper and to open the front cover to change the ribbon cassette. The
illustration shows the actual dimensions of the printer, but leave several inches
around the printer for connecting and accessing the cables.
The optional Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) check reader
feature has been factory adjusted for a normal operating environment with a host
computer. However, additional devices, such as CRT monitors, or large metal
surfaces that are near the printer can affect the printer’s magnetic field, causing
intermittent reading errors when the MICR check reader is in operation.
This condition can be easily diagnosed by checking the MICR check reader and
adjusting it if the factory setting has been altered by your operating environment.
