2.8 Loading the Ribbon

1. Do not touch any moving
parts. To reduce the risk
of fingers, jewellery,
clothing, etc., being
drawn into the moving
parts, be sure to load the
ribbon once the printer
has stopped moving
2. The print head becomes
hot immediately after
printing. Allow it to cool
before loading the ribbon.
3. To avoid injury, be careful
not to trap your fingers
while opening or closing
the cover.
Be careful not touch the
Print Head Element when
raising the Print Head Block.
Failure to do this may cause
missing dots by static
electricity or other print
quality problems.
1. When attaching the ribbon
stoppers, make sure that the
pinchers face into the printer
2. Be sure to remove any slack in
the ribbon when printing.
Printing with a wrinkled
ribbon will lower the print
3. The Ribbon Sensor is mounted
on the rear of the Print Head
Block to detect a ribbon end.
When a ribbon end is
detected, "NO RIBBON"
message will appear on the
display and the ERROR LED
will illuminate.
There are two types of media available for printing on: these are thermal
transfer media and direct thermal media (a chemically treated surface).
DO NOT LOAD a ribbon when using a direct thermal media.
1. Grasp the tabs on the top and bottom of the Ribbon Stoppers and
move the Ribbon Stoppers back to the end of the Ribbon Shaft.
2. Leaving plenty of slack between the ribbon spools, place the ribbon
onto the Ribbon Shafts as shown below.

When loading or replacing the media or a ribbon, be careful not to
damage the print head with a hard object like a watch or a ring.
Care must be taken not to allow
the metal or glass part of a watch
to touch the print head edge.
Since the print head element can be easily damaged by shock, please
treat it carefully by not hitting a hard object against it.
