Reset printer sensor threshold setting.

Turn on printer whilst holding down line key untill printer beeps.

Use feed key to step to Gap in display.
Load label plus backing under sensor and not volts reading.
remove labels and place backing only under sensor and note volts reading.
use following formula
High reading + Low reading / 0.5 = Value to use
e.g 2.8 + 1.4 / 0.5 = 2.1.

use result to change value of input using line key once set press feed key to set.

To change label start position use the pitch menu.

Lo mas probable es que requiere que la cabeza sea bien ajustada en su posicion. Lo mejor es que la ajuste un tecnico calificado en impresoras SATO. The most probable is that it requires that the head is tightened into position. The best thing is that adjust by a qualified technician in SATO printers.

there is a sensor you need to adjust (MEDIA SENSOR), depending on what type of labels you are using.

1-labels wit a notch on the side : move sensor all thte way to left ( if standing in front of printer)towards the notch.

2- labels with a seperation brtween each one, move towarrds middle.

Take a look at this link and look at page 28 for a better understanding. ( zoom to 400%)
