How To:
Set Top of Form. Top of Form(TOF) is the position on the paper where the first line of print will occur. It needs to be set when the first line of print does not print in the desired location.

Note1 - Your software may be printing the first line of print above or below where TOF is set. You may need to use the instructions below to Re-adjust according to your software's needs.
Note2 - DO NOT TURN PLATEN KNOB ON RIGHT HAND SIDE OF PRINTER. Doing this will always change the TOF setting. IF you must use it for removing paper jams be sure the power to printer is off.

Action:
Checking to see if Forms Tear off is "ON" or "OFF".
Before setting the Top of Form you need to verify what the Forms Tear Off is set for. To do this you must print the menu as described below.
1. Load Paper (using manual bail arm)
2. Press SEL (The SEL light Should go out)
3. Hold MODE
4. Press PRINT
5. Locate the "FORMS TEAR OFF" setting in the printed menu and take note of its setting. If its set for anything other than "OFF"(1 or 2 seconds) then it is considered "ON". Otherwise it is considered "OFF".

SETTING TOF with TEAR set for "OFF":
1. Load Paper (using manual bail arm)
2. Press SEL (The SEL light Should go out)
