1. At the back of your printer, tear off the last label form that has entered the printer. See the illustration below.
2. Press the LF/FF button to eject the last label form forward.
Caution: Do not leave labels loaded in the printer between print jobs; they tend to curl and may come off their backing sheet and jam the printer when you resume printing.
Switching Between Continuous Paper and Single Sheets
You can easily switch between continuous paper and single sheets without removing the continuous paper from the tractor.
Switching to single sheets
Follow these steps to switch from continuous paper to single sheets: 1. When the Auto tear-off function is turned on, the printer advances the paper to the tear-off position automatically. 2. Tear off the printed pages.
Caution: Always tear off paper before feeding it backwards; feeding too many sheets backwards can cause a paper jam. Never feed labels backward using the Load/Eject button. Labels can easily peel off their backing and jam the printer. For information on removing labels from the paper path, see To tear off and eject labels on page 16.
3. Press the Load/Eject button to feed the continuous paper back to the standby position. The paper is still attached to the tractor, but is no longer in the paper path. 4. Set the paper release lever to the single-sheet feeding position.
Now you can load single sheets from the paper guide. See Loading Single Sheets on page 12 for more information.
Switching to continuous paper
Follow these steps to switch from single sheets to continuous paper: 1. If necessary, press the Load/Eject button to eject the last printed single sheet. 2. Make sure continuous paper is loaded in the printer as described in Loading continuous paper with the tractor on page 6. 3. Set the paper release lever to the tractor feeding position.

0 slash Select the zero character with a slash ( ) (this feature is on) or without a slash (0) (this feature is off). The slash allows you to easily distinguish between the uppercase letter O and a zero. High speed draft When high speed draft is on, the printer prints up to 300 cps (characters per second) at 10 cpi (characters per inch), or 360 cps at 12 cpi. When it is off, the printer prints 225 cps at 10 cpi, or 270 cps at 12 cpi. I/F (interface) mode For LQ-630 users, you can choose AUTO (automatic), Parallel, or USB for the interface mode. For LQ-630S users, you can choose AUTO (automatic), Serial, or USB for the interface mode. When you select Auto, the printer automatically selects the interface that is receiving data, and uses that interface until the end of the print job. The Auto setting allows you to share the printer among multiple computers without changing the interface mode. If only one computer is connected to the printer, you can select Parallel, Serial or USB, depending on which interface your computer uses. Auto I/F (interface) wait time When the printer is in the auto interface mode and it receives no data from the currently selected interface for the amount of time specified with this setting, it determines which interface is receiving data and switches to that interface. You can specify either 10 seconds or 30 seconds for the auto interface wait time. Parallel I/F (interface) bidirectional mode (For LQ-630 only) The Parallel Interface bidirectional transfer mode is used when this feature is on. If bidirectional transfer mode is unnecessary, turn this off.
Baud rate (For LQ-630S only) Use this option to set the data transfer rate (baud) for the serial interface. The baud rate is measured in bits per second (bps). See your computer manual and software documentation for the proper setting. Parity (For LQ-630S only) When this option is set to None, parity checking is disabled. The parity bit, if used, provides a basic form of error detection. See your computer manual and software documentation for the proper setting. Data length (For LQ-630S only) Set the data length of the serial interface to 7 bit or 8 bit. See your computer manual and software documentation for the proper setting. Packet mode Be sure to select Auto when printing from Windows applications using the printer driver included in the CD-ROM that comes with the printer. In case you encounter any communication troubles when printing from applications based on other operating systems such as DOS, turn off this mode. Auto CR (carriage return) This setting is available only in IBM PPDS emulation mode. When auto carriage return is on, each line feed (LF) code or ESC J code is accompanied by a carriage return (CR) code so the printer moves the next printing position to the left margin. When this setting is off, you must send a CR code after the line feed code to move the printing position to the left margin. A.G.M. (IBM) Turn on the alternate graphic mode (A.G.M.) to make the ESC 3, ESC A, ESC J, ESC K, ESC L, ESC Y, ESC Z, and ESC * commands in IBM PPDS emulation mode work the same way as in ESC/P 2 mode. The A.G.M. feature is available only in IBM PPDS emulation mode.
Character table You can select from among 13 to 36 standard character tables, depending on the country of purchase. See Default-setting mode on page 41 for more information. International character set for italic table You can select among several international character sets for the italic character table. Each character set contains eight characters that vary depending on the country or language, so you can customize the italic table to suit your printing needs. Pitch You can select the character pitch from 10 cpi, 12 cpi, 15 cpi, 17 cpi, 20 cpi or Proportional. Font
You can select the following fonts: Draft, Roman, Sans Serif, Courier, Prestige, Script, OCR-B, Orator, Orator-S, Script C, Roman T, and Sans Serif H.
Manual feed wait time This setting allows you to set the amount of wait time between when paper is inserted into the paper guide and it is fed. If the paper feeds before you can adjust its position properly, you should increase the wait time. Buzzer (beeper) The printer beeps when an error occurs. See Using the Error Indicators on page 52 for more information on printer errors. If you do not want the printer to beep when an error occurs, turn off this setting. Multipart forms with cut-paper tab binding When using multipart forms with cut-paper tab bindings that are 4 inches or wider but less than 9.4 inches wide, turn on this setting.When this setting is on, the print head avoids the binding area along the right and left edges of multipart forms during paper feeding. This makes paper feeding easier and prevents paper jams. 46
Changing default settings
Follow these steps to enter the default-setting mode and change the printers default settings: Note: To print the language selection and default-setting mode instructions, you need five sheets of A4 or letter size single-sheet paper or five pages of continuous paper that is at least 279 mm (11 inches) long and 210 mm (8.3 inches) wide. See Loading Continuous Paper on page 5 and Loading Single Sheets on page 12 for instructions on loading continuous paper and single sheets. If you use single sheets, you need to load a new sheet of paper each time the printer ejects a printed sheet from the paper guide. 1. When using continuous paper, make sure paper is loaded and the printer is turned off.
Caution: Whenever you turn off the printer, wait at least five seconds before turning it back on; otherwise, you may damage the printer.
2. Turn on the printer while holding down the Load/Eject and Pause buttons. The printer enters the default-setting mode.
