Testing the printer

  1. Select one of the ingredients and print out a couple labels.
  2. Check to make sure that everything is legible and that no words or numbers are cut off.
  3. If that printing seems misaligned, following these steps to manually align the labels (read all steps before proceeding):
    1. Press the ‘Pause’ button for about three seconds until all the lights flash orange and the left ‘Status’ light stays lit orange.
    2. Then, press the middle ‘Feed’ button once.
    3. Then, press ‘Pause’ again. Labels will start printing one by one with boxes that increase in size with each label and numbers.
    4. Once the label with 2.05IN and 52MM prints out, immediately press the ‘Feed’ button to stop the printing.
    5. After this, your printer should be correctly calibrated. Try printing out a couple more labels and see if the alignment is correct.
