This interface supports operator tasks of replacing printing supplies (labels, receipt paper, transfer ribbon, etc.) when prompted by two indicators.
Status indicator icons represent a functional area of printer operation.
Status indicator lights typically use color to show the operator the functional status of the printer. The status indicator lights may be off (not lit), red, green, or amber (orange/yellow). Red is Needs Attention or Not Ready. Green is for Ready or Functioning. Amber (orange/yellow) is for a busy or active process (data downloading, over-temperature cooling cycle, etc.). An off or un-lit status indicator does not require the operator's attention.
A status indicator can flash (blink), fade (bright to off), alternate between colors, or remain on in a variety of patterns that denote various printer activities, and operational status as a group.
Control buttons are used in various combinations to access internal utilities that calibrate the printer to your media and make limited print settings.
