For Battery Pack NK-300,

    • The charging light should Flash or blink up to 10 hours. When fully charged, the charge light will turn off.

    • Using a pointed object, ie a pen, press the REFRESH button (right side of battery case).

Known Issues

Black Page When Printing Faxes

If when you print a fax, it comes out as a solid black page, go into the printer's properties and set the printer to Mono.

Will not run on battery or battery life is short after charge

Note - The printer will not print if both the Battery and the AC Adapter are plugged in at the same time. If this is not the case, then the battery may need refreshing, as follows,

  • Connect the Adapter to the printer
  • Close the printer cover
  • Press the REFRESH button on the battery pack, the refresh light should begin flashing, it could take up to 10 hours to refresh the battery.

The battery may get a memory effect, meaning it will not charge to full capacity. This is the purpose of the REFRESH function.

Powers off when printing from DOS

When printing from a DOS application or by doing a Print Screen, the printer shuts off when it prefeeds the paper. However if you print from Windows, the printer works ok.

The solution is to set the printer from BJ mode to LQ mode. Note this will not affect any Windows printing as BJ and LQ modes are only used in DOS.
