Loading for Peel Off Operation

  1. Remove the rewind plate from the front of the printer (if installed). Store it on the two mounting screws on the inside of the front panel.
  2. Open the printhead.
  3. Slide the media guide and media supply guide as far from the printer frame as possible. Flip down the media supply guide.
  4. Load media as shown.
  5. When loading media, allow approximately 36" (914 mm) of media to extend past the tear-off/peel-off bar. Remove all labels from this portion to create a leader.
  6. Remove the hook from the rewind spindle. If you are using a core, slide it onto the rewind spindle until it is flush against the guide plate.
  7. Wind the label backing around either the 3" (76 mm) core or the rewind spindle and reinstall the hook.
  8. Flip up the media supply guide. Slide in the media guide and media supply guide so they just touch, but not restrict, the edge of the roll.
  9. Before closing the printhead, make sure:
  10. Load the ribbon if used and close the printhead.

Note: The printer must be configured for PEEL Mode to enable the take label sensors. The Print Mode can be set to Peel through the LCD Display menu. If you are using a Zebra driver or label creation software make sure the mode settings are set to PEEL as well to avoid overwriting the printer settings.
