Printing on Fanfold Media

Use this procedure to print on fanfold media.
Printing on fanfold media requires you to adjust the media guides stop position.
  1. Open the top cover.
    This image shows the fanfold media path.
  2. Adjust the media guide stop position with the Slide Lock (gray).
    1. Use a piece of the fanfold media to help set the stop position.
    2. Push the gray locking slide on the left-hand roll holder towards the back of the printer to lock the roll holder position.
    3. Pull it forward to release the lock.
  3. Insert the media through the slot at the rear of the printer, and place the media between the media guide and roll holders.
  4. Close the top cover.
The media guide stop position may need further adjustment if, after printing or after pressing
to advance several labels:
  • the media does not track down the center (moves from side to side), or
  • the sides of the media (liner, tag, paper, etc.) are frayed or damaged when exiting the printer
If additional adjustment does not correct the problem, route the media over the two roll-holding pins on the media guide.
You can also provide additional support for thin media by placing an empty roll core (of the same width as the fanfold media stack) between the roll holders.
