Printing a Test (Printer Configuration) Label

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)...
    Press the
    button 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 Troubleshooting section.
  3. Press the
    button 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 the
    button until the status light flashes once, then release the button.
    A configuration label will print. If you cannot get this label to print, see Getting Started.
  5. Turn off the printer.
