Installing and Using Options

Roll paper holder

The optional roll paper holder (C81114) allows you to use your printer with 216 mm (8.5 inch) roll paper like that used with telex machines. This option is not available in all countries.
Follow these steps to install and use the roll paper holder:
Turn off the printer and remove the paper guide.
Position the roll paper holder beneath the printer as shown below. Fit the two holes in the base onto the two positioning pegs on the bottom of the printer.
Be careful to avoid dropping the roll paper holder when lifting the printer. Only the printer’s weight holds it in place.
Push the paper release lever to the single-sheet position.
Cut the leading edge of the roll paper straight across. Slide the roll paper holder shaft through the center of the paper roll.
Set the shaft and paper roll onto the roll paper holder. Orient the roll so that paper feeds from the bottom of the roll. Then turn on the printer.
Bring the leading edge of the paper up over the paper path guide for single sheets and insert it into the printer path for single sheets until you feel resistance.
Install the paper guide. Slide the left edge guide to the center until it stops at the guide mark. Then slide the right edge guide to the opposite guide mark.
