Updating Desk TnT print format for Clare Tester

A

    NOTE: Printer Initialization - The Desk Test n Tag printer comes with a preinstalled standard firmware format which may not work with the specific customer’s tester unless specifically requested at point of purchase. The printer must be reinitialized before any new formatting is done. Printer initialization clears all downloaded files resident in the flash memory, and sets parameters to default values.

  1. Initialise the printer:
    - Turn off the printer power.
    - Hold down both the ‘Pass’ and ‘Fail’ buttons and turn on the printer power.
    - Do not release the buttons until the three LED’s flash in turn and make a double beep sound.
    - Turn off the printer power.

  2. Calibrate the Label Sensor:
    - Hold down the ‘Pass’ button and turn on the printer power.
    - Do not release the button until the labels begin to move.
    - Turn off the printer power when the labels have stopped moving.

  3. Calibrate the Label Pitch:
    - Hold down the ‘Fail’ button and turn on the printer power.
    - Do not release the button until the labels begin to move.
    - Turn off the printer power when the labels have stopped moving.

  4. Prepare to download files:
    - Connect the printer to PC using the Parallel cable provided.
    - Insert the Desk Test n Tag CD into Drive. The program should start automatically.
    - Press ‘Continue’ on PC splash screen.
