ENGLISH VERSION EO1-33048 2.11 Threshold Setting
To maintain a constant print position the printer uses the media sensor to detect a print start position according to the difference of voltage between a print area and a gap or black mark. When the media is pre-printed, the darker (or more dense) inks can interfere with this process causing paper jam errors. To get around this problem, first, try an automatic threshold setting. If the problem still occurs, then, the threshold voltage needs to be manually set.
Automatic threshold setting procedure
1. Turn the power ON. The printer is in online mode. ONLINE B-SA4T 2. Load a pre-printed media roll. When using a label stock, move the Feed Gap Sensor so that it is in line with the centre of the label. When using a tag stock, move the Black Mark Sensor so that it is in line with the centre of a black mark.
3. Press the [PAUSE] key.
4. The printer enters the pause mode. PAUSE B-SA4T V1.0

Press and hold the [PAUSE] key until more than 1.5 labels (tags) have been issued. The media will continue to be fed until the [PAUSE] key is released. (An automatic threshold setting for the selected sensor is completed by this operation.) NOTES: 1. Failure to feed more than 1.5 labels may result in an incorrect threshold setting. 2. While the Top Cover is raised, the [PAUSE] key does not work.
Press the [RESTART] key.
10. The printer returns to online mode. Send an issue command from the host computer to the printer.
NOTE: A paper end error cannot be detected during paper feed.
Manual threshold setting procedure
If a paper jam error still occurs even after an automatic threshold setting has been performed, manually set the threshold voltage. To make a threshold value manually set in this section effective, select the Transmissive Sensor (when using manual threshold value) or Reflective Sensor (when using manual threshold value) within software commands or the printer driver.
Midpoint (Threshold voltage)
Voltage at a print area
NOTES: 1. When measuring a voltage of a blank area, be careful not to align a pre-print with the sensor by mistake. 2. Confirm that there is at least 0.7V difference between the two values.

Do not store the media or ribbon for longer than the manufacturers recommended shelf life. Store media rolls on the flat end. Do not store them on the curved sides as this might flatten that side causing erratic media advance and poor print quality. Store the media in plastic bags and always reseal after opening. Unprotected media can get dirty and the extra abrasion from the dust and dirt particles will shorten the print head life. Store the media and ribbon in a cool, dry place. Avoid areas where they would be exposed to direct sunlight, high temperature, high humidity, dust or gas. The thermal paper used for direct thermal printing must not have specifications which exceed Na+ 800 ppm, K+ 250 ppm and Cl- 500 ppm. Some ink used on pre-printed media may contain ingredients which shorten the print heads product life. Do not use labels pre-printed with ink which contain hard substances such as carbonic calcium (CaCO3) and kaolin (Al2O3, 2SiO2, 2H2O). For further information, please contact your local distributor or your media and ribbon manufacturers.
