Battery

For Battery Pack NK-300,

  • Charging
    • Plug in the Adapter
    • Close the printer's top lid
    • The charging light should Flash or blink up to 10 hours. When fully charged, the charge light will turn off.
    • A fully charge and good battery can print approx. 180 pages @ 5% coverage, but remember every print job is NOT 5%, so this value can vary greatly. Also If you leave the printer on when not printing, it will shorten the battery time.
  • Discharging / Refresh
    • Insure the battery pack is in the battery case (portable kit)
    • Using a pointed object, ie a pen, press the REFRESH button (right side of battery case).
    • The REFRESH light should blink up to 10 hours max.
    • When the battery is discharged, the printer will start re-charging the battery.

Known Issues

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.

The printer does not turn on

There is a power lock switch at the side of the printer beside the power connector, make sure that this is not in the lock position. Of note, if the power lock is enabled when the printer is on, you will not be able to switch the printer off.
