loading paper

Each roll of paper provides about 100 printouts. When the paper roll is low a red stripe will appear along the paper edge. When the red stripe first appears there are about 10 printouts left.

To change the printer paper perform the following steps:

1. 

Make sure the analyzer is turned off.

2. 

Open the access door by pressing the top of the door as shown below. The bottom will open allowing you to remove the door.

3. 

If the old roll still contains paper, cut (or tear) the paper near the paper roll and pull the remnant forward through the top of the printer. Lift the old roll out of the paper roll holder.


CAUTION
Never pull the paper from inside the access door back down through the printer. To remove the paper from the printer, cut or tear the paper near the paper roll and pull the remnant forward through the top of the printer.


4. 

Remove and discard the first six inches of the new paper roll - this part of the roll usually contains glue and may jam the printer. Unroll an additional six inches of the new paper roll and cut the paper as shown below with scissors.

5. 

Insert the end of the paper into the analyzer as shown below.

 


          Inserting the Print Roll

IMPORTANT
The printer can print on one side of the paper only. Therefore, the roll must be inserted as shown below:



6. 

Feed the paper through the slot until the point of the paper appears through the top of the printer.

7. 

Carefully pull the paper through the printer until you have about two inches of paper free. Center the paper in the printer slot while pulling it through.

You will hear a clicking noise when pulling on the paper. This sound is normal and does not mean anything is wrong.

8. 

Wind up any slack paper on the roll and place it in the paper roll holder.

9. 

Feed the paper through the slot in the access door and close the door.

10. 

Turn the analyzer on and press the DATA key to activate the printer. Press the FEED key several times to advance the paper.
