Standard Calibration is appropriate for most media types. During the process, the printhead assembly can be raised for visual access to the media and media sensor. In addition, displayed sensor readings can be used to indicate the best position over the media, which is helpful when using small, position-critical TOF notches or marks. Three readings are required:
Empty: No media in the sensor.
Gap (or Mark): Only the backing, notch, or reflective mark in the sensor.
Paper: The label (with the liner attached) in the sensor.
To perform a Standard Calibration:
- Media should be locked and the appropriate Sensor Type selected. Turn the Printer On
- Press the MENU Key. Raise the printhead assembly
- Press the ENT Key to enter the Media Settings menu
