Connect your printer

To connect your printer, you need its power cable.

  2. Connect the power cable to your printer and to an electrical outlet.
  3. Attach the bottom and back covers to your printer.


  4. Turn on your printer.

The power LED light will stop blinking and become solid once your printer is ready. 

Insert a paper roll

  1. To open the printer's cover, push the lever on the right-hand side of the cover away from you and lift the cover upwards.
  2. Insert the paper roll in the following orientation. While doing so, make sure the paper roll stays taut and doesn't unroll.


  3. Pull the paper out past the cutter at the front of the printer.
  4. Push the cover down to snap the lever shut. 

Pairing your receipt printer to your iPad
