Using the Roll Paper Holder

Loading the roll paper

With the roll paper holder mounted on the printer, you can print in roll paper format, which is convenient for banner printing. When you are printing using the roll paper holder, keep the following in mind:

Loading the roll paper

Follow the directions below to mount the roll paper holder and load the roll paper.

Load roll paper in the roll paper holder.

Remove the transparent sheet after setting the roll paper into the holders.

Check that the end of the roll is cut perpendicularly to the edges as shown, using a triangle.

Always use a triangle or other tool to ensure that the end of the roll is cut perpendicularly. A diagonal cut may cause paper feed problems.

To flatten the roll paper, place it printable-side up between the pages of the instruction booklet packaged with the roll paper to protect it. Then, roll the booklet in the opposite direction to the paper's curl.

Remove the paper support and lower the output tray. Then turn on the printer.

Make sure that the adjust lever is set to the  position.

Insert the hooks of the roll paper holder into the slots at the back of the printer.

Pull out approximately 40 cm of the roll paper and load it into the roll paper feeder as far as it will go, flush with the left roll paper edge guide from the printer back. Then adjust the edge guide to the paper size.

Do not load the roll paper into the sheet feeder for regular paper.

To load the paper correctly, you must hold the paper in place with your hand for three seconds. The paper will feed into the printer automatically.

Open the printer cover and make sure that the paper is feeding correctly. If it is not straight, press the roll paper button for at least three seconds to eject the paper. The error light comes on.

Turn the roll paper knob and roll up the roll paper. Press the  roll paper button to clear the error, then feed the paper again.

The roll paper is now loaded. Next, set up the printer software and try printing. For details on setting up the printer software, refer to Printing on Roll Paper.
