Resuming from a Paper-Out
The printer can "sense" when paper runs out. Depending upon how PPR-
OUT (paper-out) is set in setup mode, the printer either:
Stops printing and lights the red PAPER OUT indicator, or
Continues printing until no more data remains in the printer.
See Chapter 5 for details on setting PPR-OUT. The factory default is to
stop printing if continuous forms paper runs out and to continue printing
if single sheet paper runs out.
To resume printing when paper runs out, use either of the methods
Printing the remaining lines on a page
This method is convenient to continue printing under the paper-out
condition, but is not available when the cut sheet feeder is used.
1. Press the ONLINE button. The printer returns to online mode,
prints or feeds one line, and the PAPER OUT indicator lights up
2. Repeat this procedure until the full page is printed. Line spacing,
however, may be uneven.
