We recommend using genuine Brother roll media.

  2. Pull up the release levers on both sides of the printer to unlock the Roll Compartment Cover.

  3. Hold the printer by the front, and firmly lift the Roll Compartment Cover to open it.

    Do not directly touch the Tear Bar with your hands. Doing so may result in injury.

  4. Slide both Roll Guides outwards.

    Rotate the adjuster dial towards you to lock the Roll Guides into place.

  6. Feed the end of the roll under the Media Guide Tips (1).
    Position the end of the paper slightly out of the Label Output Slot.

  7. Close the Roll Compartment Cover until it locks into place.

    Be careful not to get your finger pinched between the upper and lower parts of the Roll Compartment Cover when closing it. There is a risk of injury.

  • Do not leave any printed labels in the printer. Doing so will cause label jams.
  • When not in use, remove any rolls from inside the printer and close the Roll Compartment Cover to prevent dust and debris from accumulating in the printer.
