The Manual Media Calibration performs an optimized series of focused sensor settings for hard-to-sense media.
While in Advanced Mode, press

indicator will flash yellow than the
indicator will flash.
Open the printer and verify the media sensor is in the center position for label gap (transmissive) sensing.
If your media uses black mark or notch sensing, ensure the media sensor is in the proper location to see the mark or notch.
If your media is pre-printed, either on the front of the label or on the back of the liner, position the sensor so that it is in a position with minimal printing. You may need to perform Manual Media Calibration several times, moving the media sensor, until the printer completes the calibration process and returns to the READY state.
Remove 3 inches or 80mm of labels from the liner.
Place the label-less area of the liner over the platen (drive) roller with the leading edge of the first label under the media guides.
Close the printer and press
indicator will flash as the media liner is measured. When complete, the
indicator will begin flashing.
Open the printer and reposition the media so that a label is located directly above the movable sensor. Close the printer.
The printer will feed and measure several labels. If the printer is able to determine the correct media type (gap, black mark, or notch) and measure the media length, the printer will return to the READY state, the
