2 Chapter 1 Command Interpreter and Command System 1.1 Outline Outline of Command System Outline of Interpreter Outline of Label Format Data Outline of Label Printing Method Control Specification System Level Immediate Execution Commands System Level Occasional Execution Commands Label Format Commands

3 1.1 Outline Generally, when labels of graphics and bar c odes are printed by a line printer, print data is converted into bit map data in the computer and transmitted to the printer for printing. In this process the host computer has to generate the bit map data and send it to the printer, this reduces throughput leading to slow printing and host computer operation. This printer incorporate many functions such as a variety of fonts, bar code generators, and graphic commands along with high speed processing, so high -quality labels can be printed easily at high sp eeds when simple commands are transmitted from the host computer. The computer processing in generating labels is reduced enabling it to undertake more processing. 1.2 Outline of Command System Commands for this printer consist of a string of ASCII char acters and end with a "CR" (decimal: 13, hex: 0D). Generally, commands are classified into two types, that is, system level commands and label format commands. System level commands are used in system level operations, including printer output, sensor se lection and memory maintenance. Label format commands are used in the definition of printing contents such as character data, bar code data, printing speed, and print density. System level commands start with ASCII "SOH" ($01) or ASCII "STX" ($02). Commands that start with SOH are requested for the real -time execution. When received, they are executed immediately even during printing. Commands that start with STX enter the buffer area and are executed in the order of data reception. Label format commands follow the system level commands' "STX" + "L" and end with a "CR." (For details, see 1.3 Outline of Interpreter and 1.4 Outline of Label Format Data.) 1-2

4 Fig. 1 Command summary System level commands Start with "SOH" or "STX" and end with a CR Commands which start with "SOH" Executed as soon as they are received (For example: printing halt, output of printer status, etc.) Commands which start with "STX" Executed in order after they are received into the reception buffer (For example: sensor sw maintenance, etc.) itching, memory card "STX" + "L" "E" (with printing) "X" (without printing) Label format commands End with a "CR" Print parameter control Character data definition commands Bar code definition commands Graphic commands Other commands 1-3

5 1.3 Outline of Interpreter Two types of interpreters are used for this printer; system level and label format interpreters. When power is turned on, the system level interpreter is selected and the data received is processed in the system level interpreter and system level commands are executed. Changing to the label format interpreter to start generating label data is executed with system level commands. When the system level interpreter receives the system level command "STX" + "L," it changes to the label format interpreter. The commands after this are regarded as label format commands and label format starts. The label format interpreter does not need headers such as "SOH" and "STX." The data for printing data format is deli mited by a "CR" and then transmitted. The label format command E or X executes changing to the system level interpreter from the label format interpreter. When label format ends with "E," defined data is printed and the system level interpreter is sta rted. When label format ends with "X," the system level interpreter is started without printing. 1-4

6 1.4 Outline of Label Format Data This printer prints label format data by using memory space of the following size. Model area CL-S621 CL-S700 CLP-9301 CLP-8301 CL-S521 series Reception buffer area [bytes] 16K 16K 16K 16K Field register data area [bytes] 20K 20K 20K 20K Number of maximum print fields Global register area [bytes] 1K 1K 1K 1K Bit map area [bytes] 1892K 1892K 1922K 4652K Maximum page length [inches] Reception buffer area The reception buffer area is a ring data buffer area (software FIFO) under software control. Basically, all commands and data transmitted from the host computer are buffered once into this area and then executed in the order of buffering to complete communications from the host computer in the shortest possible time. However, some system level commands (such as those starting with "SOH" for print halt) which require real-time execution are executed immediately after being received. 2 Field register area A string of character data and bar code data is regarded as one field that includes information such as type, print position, and size. The field register area is an area that encloses the label format field. The label format interpreter analyzes the format data received, stores it once, and then generates a bit map. If there are any problems in the data received, the data that is being analyzed is discarded without being stored in the field register area. The field data is given a control number for every field (1, 2, 400) when the data is stored. This printer has a field register area of 20,000 characters and can print a maximum of 400 different types of field data per label. 3 Global register area The global register area is an area which stores field data that is repeatedly used. A part of the data (character string and bar code data) in the field register is stored in the global register area and used as requested. The data stored in the global register area is given a control number starting with A (A, B, -----, P). The data set in the global register is stored while formatting for one label is performed (until the label format interpreter returns control to the system level interpreter) so it can be reused for data definition within the same label. 1-5

7 4 Bit map area The bit map area is a buffering area for output data. The data in this area is generated by a rasterizer according to the data in the field data area and corresponds to i ndividual dots that are generated on the label during printing. The data of the bit map area is printed on the label with high quality and at high speed by means of the printer control program and exclusive thermal control circuit. 1-6

8 1.5 Outline of Label Printing Method This printer has two label printing methods, one is that all label format data received is printed, and the other is that format data which has been received beforehand, is printed or partially modified and printed. 1 All data received method ASCII code "STX" + "L" sets the printer to label format mode. The printer clears the field register area and control is transferred from the system level interpreter to the label format interpreter. At this time, use of label format commands is enabled. Printing data such as characters, bar codes and graphics is transmitted. Each data set has a special field structure that includes information such as print position and size. The label format interpreter, stored in the field register area che cks the printing data received, and generation of bit map data is then started. Powerful commands such as specification of the number of copies, characters strings and automatic incre asing or decreasing of bar code data are included in the label format commands. In addition, the format data stored in the global register area can be read out and used. After completing label formatting, an ASCII "E" is transmitted. The printer prints the labels specified by the data in the field register area and control is then returned from the label format interpreter to the system level interpreter. 2 Using formatted data In this mode, fixed format labels are printed. While label data formatting is completed, an ASCII "X" is transmitted instead of "E." The printer forms the field register area and completes formatting without printing and control is returned to the system level command processor. From this point on, the system level command processor allows the printer to print fixed format labels by using the format data in the field register area. If ASCII "STX" + "G" is transmitted to the system level comm and processor, the labels are printed according to the contents of the specified field register. In addition, change of data and number of copies is provided. (Only data can be changed. Format information such as print position and size cannot be changed.) Printing with the "STX" + "G" command can be performed repeatedly. 1-7

9 1.6 Control Specification 1 Outline This printer is connected to the computer via a serial interface and prints characters and bar codes at the requested print position on the label. The printer has a data area of 20,000 characters. This character data can be stored in up to 400 different fields in single buffer mode (200 different fields in double buffer mode) Each field stores attributes such as print position, rotation angle, font specification, and expansion factor (called attribute information). Machine control commands for print de nsity or printing speed setting are used in addition to printing data control commands. Basically, this printer prints labels by means of bi -directional communications with the computer via the serial interface. The printer not only prints data, but also transmits information such as label and printer settings to the computer. The computer and printer communicate so that the printer can receive correct data from the computer and perform optimum printing. Also, the printer has the parallel interface (centronics) as a standard but in this case bi -directional communications are not used, so data cannot be transmitted from the printer. 1-8

10 1.6.1 System Level Immediate Execution Commands These commands are executed as soon as the printer receives them. They begin with "SOH," i.e. [01]. Command reset [01] # Printer status transmission request (8-byte packet) Pause Stop/cancel SOH command shutdown Transmission of number of remaining sheets to be issued Printer status transmission request (1-byte packet) Error status transmission request (4-byte packet) [01] A [01] B [01] C [01] D [01] E [01] F [01] 1-9

11 Command reset [01] # Function Initialized equivalent to power is turned on. Buffer and on -board memory contents are initialized. Command setting for previous commands is initialized. Transmission data (XOFF) T (XON) R (XON) for hardware reset. Caution Since printer executes reset immediately after receiving this command, it clears un -printed data in the reception buffer. When using this command, you are recommended to check printing completion first, then send this command. This com mand will let the printer off, thus ensure the printer is ready mode state before sending this command. Printer status transmission request (8-byte packet) Function Caution [01] A If this command is received, printer will send data on current printer status to the computer with the following 8 ASCII characters Command interpreter in action Paper end Ribbon end Batch processing (printing) Printing Pause Waiting for peeling Spare Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N N (always) After sending 8 ASCII characters, code [0D] hex is added. Y and N each is hex digit and [59] hex and [4E] hex. Printer sends data on printer status to the computer as soon as it receives this command (in a period of approx. 150ms - 250ms). Therefore, the computer must be ready to receive data from the printer immediately after receiving this command. 1-10

12 Printer status Relationship between command interpreter, batch processing and printing Normal label printing puts the printer in the above status. The printer, however, operates with a double buffer, so if the next printing data is received during batch processing, both interpreter operation and batch processing (printing) may be performed simultaneously. Difference between batch processing and printing As shown in the diagram, printing start and stop may be repeated within a single cycle of batch processing. Therefore, use the operations properly (peeling, auto-cutter, etc.) as required. Pause Function [01] B Printing temporarily stops and resumes. Toggles printer pause on and off. Pause on and off by using this command is performed in the same way as operated from the control panel. Pause on from the control panel can change to pause off with this command. Stop/cancel Function [01] C Printing stops. Performed in the same way as operated from the Stop key on the control panel. With this command, printer stops on completion of the current printing label and will clear data in the reception buffer. SOH command shutdown Function [01] D After receiving this command, printer ignores immediate execution commands starting with control code [01] even if those commands are received. To send nothing for five seconds can automatically cancel the setting. 1-11

13 Transmission of number of remaining sheets to be issued Function Caution [01] E If this command is received, printer will send data on the number of remaining sheets to be issued for the current printing to the computer with 4 ASCII characters. The [0D] hex code is added to the end of the 4-digit transmission data. Printer sends data on the number of remaining sheets to be issued to the computer as soon as it receives this command (in a period of approx. 150ms - 250ms). Therefore, the computer must be ready to receive data from the printer immediately after receiving this command. Printer status transmission request (1-byte packet) Function [01] F If this command is received, printer will send 1 -byte packet data on current printer status to the computer. Th e contents of 1-byte packet data transmitting from the printer are as follows: Bit Description Command interpreter in action Paper end Ribbon end Batch processing (printing) Printing Pause Waiting for peeling Spare YES NO 1 or 0 1 or 0 1 or 0 1 or 0 1 or 0 1 or 0 1 or 0 0 (always) The [0D] hex code is added to the end of transmission data. Caution Printer sends data on printer status to the computer as soo n as it receives this command. Therefore, the computer must be ready to receive data from the printer immediately after receiving this command. 1-12

14 Error status transmission request (4-byte packet) Function [01] I After receiving this command, print er sends 4-byte data on current conditions inside the printer to the host PC. Shown below are contents of the 4-byte data to be sent from the printer.

20 Setting two-page edit mode (double buffer) [02] d Function After receiving this command, printer divides the internal edit buffer into 2 pages and enters the high-speed edit mode. In the high -speed edit mode, editing the next page in advance while the current page is being printed increases printing speed. Caution The printer automatically judges whether the double buffer is needed or not, and the mode is switched accordingly, so this command does not need to be particularly specified. Maximum printing length per page is 40 inches, independently of the division. Internal edit buffer Direction of feed ABCD Two-page mode 2 nd page One-page mode 1 st page 1 st page In two-page mode, data on next page is edited while printing 1 st page In one-page mode, next data is not processed, until printing is completed 1-19

Used for detecting paper gap between label papers, die -cut paper, notch hole for tag paper, etc. This setting is used as default. If not detected properly, check the sensor position. Paper gap between label papers and notch holes for tag paper in Fig below is detected. Label paper gap ABCDEF Tag paper notch holes No 0001 ABCDEF No 0002 Label one sheet feed [02] F Function Feeds label one sheet. The amount of fe ed is the length from the bottom of the label paper to the next bottom of the label paper. When using continuous paper, feeds paper the length currently set ([02] c nnnn). Performed in the same way as operated from the Feed key on the control panel. Label paper Continuous paper Direction of feed Amount of feed Paper length [02] cnnnn 1-21

23 Setting peeling (cutting) position Units Setting [02] f nnn 0.01 inch (0.1mm) nnn 3-digit data Initial value and its set range vary depending on the command setting. Inch system Metric system Initial Minimum Max Initial Minimum Max value value value value value value DMI / DMW Normal Cutter Peel Tear Off DM4 / DM8 Normal * Cutter * Peel Tear Off DPP Normal Cutter Peel Tear Off *In se tting 4-digit value, use [02] Kf command. Function Caution With the setting above, the distance between paper sensor and cutter or peeler can be specified. When nnn is small, the amount of feed is small, so printed label will be cut. When nnn is appropriate, the label is fed the required amount, then cut at the paper gap. When nnn is large, the amount of feed is large, so the next printing label will be cut. If value out of range is spe cified, the command parameter will be ignored. If optional functions such as cutter, peeler and ejection are turned on from the control panel, their initialization values will be set automatically. These initialization values, however, vary depending on the specifications of each option. For details, see the instruction manuals of each option. Once this command was set, auto-setting function is stopped due to priority for user's specification. Do not set this command if not necessary. 1-22

Below you will find common errors listed alongside their solutions.

CLS621 Printer Errors and Alarm Codes

Errors are shown by activating & flashing the LED lights

Paper mentioned throughout this article refers to any type of compatible media. If you have any other error please check your guide or the manufacturers website before getting in touch.

When your CL-S621 Printer detects a problem it sounds an alarm and flashes its lights. Below we have listed a range of common print problems, alongside their light status. You can use the lights location and colour to identify the issue.

A table of CL-S621 Printer Error Codes

Here’s how common errors are shown

Note: Silence the printers alarm by pressing the stop button.

Troubleshooting Errors & Alarms

Once you know what problem you have, you can then start to put it right. The troubleshooting information below, shows how to fix common problems found when using these printers.

CLS621 Sheet options

Adjust your print head temperature on the options tab

Overheating issues can usually be solved by providing adequate ventilation and spacing around the printer, see the operating conditions guide. If you are getting abnormal print head temperatures first ensure it’s clean. Check the print head temperature settings are at the correct values shown in the image below.

Head open alarms can occur when the unit has not been locked down correctly, this can stop operation. Open the top cover, find the blue knob and push it down to secure the print head unit. If it fails to close correctly check for any jammed media. Replace the printers top cover when finished.

Tighten CLS621 ribbon cores

Check your ribbon is seated correctly and is wrinkle free

Replace a ribbon when fitting a new media roll or when the end of the ribbon is detected by the printer. Or in the case of a “Ribbon End” false positive, check the cores are fitted properly and check the tension settings.

Ribbon errors occur when they have not been installed correctly or are twisted and wrinkled. Always ensure the winding cores are fully inserted and are configured as outside wound or ink out. A loose or wrinkled ribbon will require the cores tightening to remove creases and any slack. Check the tension and media adjustment controls for incorrect settings, refer to your manual for your values.

The simplest media problem is when the printer detects it’s empty, simply re-stock the machine with fresh components to solve this. When loading a new roll, use the feed button on the control panel to move printing to the start of a panel.

Please refer to your user or manufacturers guide for more up-to-date information. Or for further assistance contact our customer service team for help. And remember, customers can order Cleaning Pens or Alcohol Swabs from our online np-shop.

3 1.1 Citizen clp-521 condition error Generally, when labels of graphics and bar c odes are printed by a line printer, print data is converted into bit map data in the computer and transmitted to the printer for printing. In this process the host computer has to generate the bit map data and send it to the printer, this reduces throughput leading to slow printing and host computer operation. This printer citizen clp-521 condition error many functions such as a variety of fonts, bar code generators, and graphic commands along with high speed processing, so high -quality labels can be printed easily at high sp eeds when simple commands are transmitted from the host computer. The computer processing in generating labels is reduced enabling it to undertake more processing. 1.2 Outline of Command System Commands for this printer consist of a string of ASCII char acters and end with a "CR" (decimal: 13, citizen clp-521 condition error, hex: 0D). Generally, commands are classified into two types, that is, system level commands and label format commands. System level commands are used in system level operations, including printer output, sensor se lection and memory maintenance. Label format commands are used in the definition of printing contents such as character data, bar code data, printing speed, and print density. System level commands start with ASCII "SOH" ($01) or ASCII "STX" ($02). Commands that start with SOH are requested for the real -time execution. When received, they are executed immediately even during printing. Commands that start with STX enter the buffer area and are executed in the order of data reception. Label format commands follow the system level commands' "STX" + "L" and end with a "CR." (For details, see 1.3 Outline of Interpreter and 1.4 Outline of Label Format Data.) 1-2

4 Fig. 1 Command summary System level commands Start with "SOH" or "STX" and end with a CR Commands which start with "SOH" Executed as soon as they are received (For example: printing halt, output of printer status, etc.) Commands disk error occured start with "STX" Executed in order after they are received into the reception buffer (For example: sensor sw maintenance, etc.) itching, memory card "STX" + "L" "E" (with printing) "X" (without printing) Label format commands End with a "CR" Print parameter control Character data definition commands Bar code definition commands Graphic commands Other commands 1-3

5 1.3 Outline of Interpreter Two types of interpreters are used for this printer; system level and label format interpreters. When power is turned on, the system level interpreter is selected and the data received is processed in the system level interpreter and system level commands are executed. Changing to the label format interpreter to start generating label data is executed with system level commands. When the system level interpreter receives the system level command "STX" + "L," it changes to the label format interpreter. The commands after this are regarded as label format commands and label format starts. The label format interpreter does not need headers such as "SOH" and "STX." The data for printing data format is deli mited by a "CR" and then transmitted. The label format command E or X executes changing to the system level interpreter from the label format interpreter. When label format ends with "E," defined data is printed and the system level interpreter is sta rted. When label format ends with "X," the system level interpreter is started without printing. 1-4

6 1.4 Outline of Label Format Data This printer prints label format data by using memory space of the following size. Model area CL-S621 CL-S700 CLP-9301 CLP-8301 CL-S521 series Reception buffer area [bytes] 16K 16K 16K 16K Field register data area [bytes] 20K 20K 20K 20K Number of maximum print fields Global register area [bytes] 1K 1K 1K 1K Bit map area [bytes] 1892K 1892K 1922K 4652K Red alert 2 connection error page length [inches] Reception buffer area The reception buffer area is a ring data buffer area (software FIFO) under software control. Basically, all commands and data transmitted from the host computer are buffered once into this area and then executed in the order of buffering to complete communications from the host computer in the shortest possible time. However, some system level commands (such as those starting with "SOH" for print halt) which require real-time execution are executed immediately after being received. 2 Field register area A string of character data and bar code data is regarded as one field that includes information such as type, print position, and size. The field register area is an area that encloses the label format field. The label format interpreter analyzes the format data received, stores it once, and then generates a bit map. If there are any problems in the data received, the data that is being analyzed is discarded without being stored in the field register area. The field data is given a control number for every field (1, 2, 400) when the data is stored. This printer has a field register area of 20,000 characters and can print a maximum of 400 different types of field data per label. 3 Global register area The global register area is an area which stores field data that is repeatedly used. A part of the data (character string and bar code data) in the field register is stored in the global register area and used as requested. The data stored in the global register area is given a control number starting with A (A, B, ----- citizen clp-521 condition error, P). The data set in the global register is stored while formatting for one label is performed (until the label format interpreter returns control to the system level interpreter) so it can be reused for data definition within the same label. 1-5

7 4 Bit map area The bit map area is a buffering area for output data. The data in this area is generated by a rasterizer according to the data in the field data area and corresponds to i ndividual dots that are generated on the label during printing. The data of the bit map area is printed on the label with high quality and at high speed by means of the printer control program and exclusive thermal control circuit. 1-6

8 1.5 Outline of Label Printing Method This printer has two label printing methods, one is that all label format data received is printed, and the other is that format data which has been received beforehand, is printed or partially modified and printed. 1 All data received method ASCII code "STX" + "L" sets the printer to label format mode. The printer clears the field register area and control is transferred from the system level interpreter to the label format interpreter. At this time, use of label format commands is enabled. Printing data such as characters, bar codes and graphics is transmitted. Each data set has a special citizen clp-521 condition error structure that includes information such as print position and size. The label format interpreter, stored in the field register area che cks the printing data received, and generation of bit map data is then started. Powerful commands such as specification of the number of copies, characters strings and automatic incre asing or decreasing of bar code data are included in the label format commands. In addition, the format data stored in the global register area can be read out and used. After completing label formatting, an ASCII "E" is transmitted. The printer prints the labels specified by the data in the field register area and control is then returned from the label format interpreter to the system level interpreter. 2 Using formatted data In this mode, fixed format labels are printed. While label data formatting is completed, an ASCII "X" is transmitted instead of "E." The printer forms the field register area and completes formatting without printing and control is returned to the system level command processor. From this point on, the system level command processor allows the printer to print fixed format labels by using the format data in the field register area, citizen clp-521 condition error. If ASCII "STX" + "G" is transmitted to the system level comm and processor, the labels are printed according to the contents of the specified field register. In addition, change of data and number of copies is provided. (Only data can be changed. Format information such as print position and size cannot be changed.) Printing with the "STX" + "G" asp.net error cs1026 can be performed repeatedly. 1-7

9 1.6 Control Specification 1 Outline This printer is connected to the computer via a serial interface and prints characters and bar codes at the requested print position on the label. The printer has a data area of 20,000 characters. This character data can be stored in up to 400 different fields in single buffer mode (200 citizen clp-521 condition error fields in double buffer mode) Each field stores attributes such as print position, rotation angle, font specification, and expansion factor (called attribute information). Machine control commands for print de nsity or printing speed citizen clp-521 condition error are used in addition to printing data control commands. Basically, this printer prints labels by means of bi -directional communications with the computer via the serial interface. The printer not only prints data, but also transmits information such as label and printer settings to the computer. The computer and printer communicate so that the printer can receive correct data from the computer and perform optimum printing. Also, the printer has the parallel interface (centronics) as a standard but in this case bi -directional communications are citizen clp-521 condition error used, so data cannot be transmitted from the printer. 1-8

Transmission data (XOFF) T (XON) R (XON) for hardware reset. Caution Since printer executes reset immediately after receiving citizen clp-521 condition error command, it clears un -printed data in the reception buffer. When using this command, you are recommended to check printing completion first, then send this command. This com mand will let the printer off, thus ensure the printer is ready mode state before sending this command. Printer status transmission request (8-byte packet) Function Caution [01] A If this command citizen clp-521 condition error received, printer will send data on current printer status to the computer with the following 8 ASCII characters Command interpreter in action Paper end Ribbon end Batch processing (printing) Printing Pause Waiting for peeling Spare Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N Y or N N (always) After sending 8 ASCII characters, code [0D] hex is added. Y and N each is hex digit and [59] hex and [4E] hex. Printer sends data on printer status to the computer as soon as it receives this command (in a period of approx. 150ms - 250ms). Therefore, the computer must be ready to receive data from the printer immediately after receiving this command. 1-10

12 Printer status Relationship between command interpreter, batch processing and printing Normal label printing puts the printer in the above status. The printer, however, operates with a double buffer, so if the next printing data is received during batch processing, both interpreter operation and batch processing (printing) may be performed simultaneously. Difference between batch processing and printing As shown in the diagram, printing start and stop may be repeated within a single cycle of batch processing. Therefore, use the operations properly (peeling, auto-cutter, etc.) as required. Pause Function [01] B Printing temporarily stops and resumes. Toggles printer pause on and off. Pause on and off by using this command is performed in the same way as operated from the control panel. Pause on from the control panel can change to pause off with this command. Stop/cancel Function [01] C Printing stops. Performed in the same way as operated from the Stop key citizen clp-521 condition error the control panel. With this command, printer stops on completion of the current printing label and will clear data in the reception buffer.
