Printing Problems
You may be using paper that curls too easily.
Ensure that the paper you are using meets the specifications. (See Chapter 8,
"Appendix," in the Reference Guide.) Remove the paper stack, turn it over,
reload in the drawer and try again. (See Chapter 2, "Basic Operations," in the
Reference Guide.)
You have specified a font that is not available.
Check whether the font you specified is available with the machine. (See
"Symbol Sets Supported," on p. 3-3.)
You are trying to print something outside the printable area of the page.
Use your software application to adjust the margins of the page. Check and
ensure that your software application is not trying to print graphics or text
outside the printable area. (See the application software manual.)
You may be using unsuitable paper.
Always use paper that is suitable for the machine. (See Chapter 2, "Basic
Operations," in the Reference Guide.)
If different portions of the text are garbled every time you print, the interface
cable may be too long, and spurious noise is corrupting the data.
Using a USB cable of 3 meters or shorter is recommended. If your USB cable is
longer than this, replace it with a shorter one.
The machine is plugged into an outlet shared with another electrical device
capable of generating noise, such as a photocopier, shredder or air conditioner.
Plug the machine into a different outlet or consult a qualified technician to install
a noise filter.
