Set Counter: Press and hold ”Recall/Reset“ button for five seconds to reset the label counter to zero.
Change Measuring Unit between English (Inches) and Metric (Centimetres):
• English: Turn off the unit. Press and hold ”Mode“ and “+“ buttons while switching on the unit. A “-“ appears as the first digit of the firmware version number on the display.
• Metric: Turn off the unit. Press and hold ”Mode“ and “-“ button while switching on the unit. A “=“ appears as the first digit of the firmware version number on the display.

• Stop after apply: Turn off the unit. Press and hold the “Recall/Reset” button with the ”-” key and turn on the unit.

Tip Of The Month

How do I reactivate dried cartridges?

Do you experience a dried ink tank in your LX500e, DP SE-3, DP-41xx or Primera Trio?

Good news is that you don’t have to throw them away. There are two easy ways to reactive a cartridge quite quickly. Our latest video tutorial explains both options step by step. Click on the button below and check it out!
