  • Page 9: Operating The Printer

    INTRODUCTION Operating the Printer On Line You can print data from your computer at any time, if the printer is on line (see page 14 for how to switch the printer on line). Off Line No data can be received from the computer if the printer is off line. However, any data in the printer buffer can be printed manually by the Form Feed procedure (see page 14).
