Printing a Test (Printer Configuration) Label

Before you connect the printer to your computer, make sure that the printer is in proper working order.
You can do this by printing a configuration status label.
  1. Make sure the media is properly loaded and the top cover of the printer is closed.
  2. Turn the printer power on if you have not already done so.
    If the printer initializes with the status light blinking green (pause mode)...
    once to set the printer in Ready (to print) mode.
    If the printer’s status light does not turn solid green (Ready)...
    Refer to the Diagnostics and Troubleshooting section.
  3. Press
    two to three times to allow the printer to calibrate for the installed media.
    The printer auto-calibrates (see Media Sensing) and may feed several labels during this process.
  4. When the status light turns solid green, press and hold
    button until the status light flashes once, then release.
    A configuration label prints. If you cannot get this label to print, see Getting Started.

  5. If you are printing this label as part of the printer setup, turn printer power OFF after you have printed the label. You must first complete the physical cable connections between the printer and the computer, install the printer drivers on your computer, and then turn printer power ON when the Installation Wizard instructs you to do so.
