Final Steps for Peel-Off Mode (with or without Liner Take-Up)

Final Steps for Peel-Off Mode (with or without Liner Take-Up)

  1. Push down the peel-off mechanism release lever to open the peel assembly.
  2. Extend the media approximately 18 in. (500 mm) out of the printer.
  3. Remove the exposed labels so that only the liner remains.
  4. Feed the liner behind the peel assembly. Make sure that the end of the liner falls outside of the printer.
  5. Complete this step only if you want to use Peel-Off mode with Liner Take-Up.
    Your printer must have the Liner Take-Up option installed.
    1. Slide the liner into the slot in the liner take-up spindle (1).
    2. Push the liner back until it touches the back plate of the liner take-up spindle assembly.
    3. Wrap the liner around the liner take‑up spindle and turn the spindle counterclockwise to tighten the liner.
    In the next step, use the peel release lever and your right hand to close the peel assembly. Do not use your left hand to assist in closing. The top edge of the peel roller/assembly could pinch your fingers.
  6. Close the peel assembly using the peel-off mechanism release lever.
  7. Slide in the outer media guide until it just touches the edge of the media.
  8. Rotate the printhead-open lever downward until it locks the printhead in place.
  9. Set the printer to Peel-Off mode (for more information, see Print Mode).
  10. Close the media door.
  11. Press
    to exit pause mode and enable printing.
    The printer may perform a label calibration or feed a label, depending on your settings.
  12. For optimal results, calibrate the printer. See Calibrating the Ribbon and Media Sensors.
  13. Perform the CANCEL Self Test to verify that your printer is able to print a configuration label.
    Media loading in Peel-Off mode is complete.
