Adding paper to a Casio calculator typically refers to loading a paper roll into a printing calculator model for receipt or calculation printouts. Here’s a general guide on how to load or replace the paper roll in a Casio printing calculator:
Step 1: Open the Printer Compartment
- Locate the printer compartment, which is usually on the back or the bottom of the calculator.
- There may be a cover that you need to open or slide off. In some models, you press and slide the cover, while in others, you might need to lift it.
Step 2: Remove Any Remaining Paper
- If you’re replacing an old roll, remove any leftover paper from the previous roll.
Step 3: Prepare the New Paper Roll
- Ensure you have the correct size paper roll for your model (common sizes are 2 1/4 inches or 57mm wide).
- Unroll a small amount of paper, and if the end is not straight, tear off a piece to create a clean edge.
Step 4: Insert the Paper Roll
- Place the paper roll into the compartment with the end of the roll coming from the bottom and feeding out toward the calculator’s front. This orientation can vary by model, so if there’s a diagram inside the compartment, refer to that.
- There should be a small slot or feed mechanism where the end of the paper roll is to be inserted.
Step 5: Feed the Paper
- Hold the end of the paper roll and insert it into the slot or feed mechanism.
- Some models have an automatic paper feed function that you can activate by pressing a key (often labeled “Feed,” “Paper Advance,” or with an arrow symbol). Press this key to feed the paper through the printer.
- If the model doesn’t feed the paper automatically, you may need to manually feed it through the printer’s internal rollers. You might do this by turning a knob or by gently pushing the paper into the feed until it catches and begins to advance.
Step 6: Close the Printer Compartment
- Once the paper has been fed through the feed mechanism and you have a small amount protruding from the printer slot, close the printer compartment cover securely.
Step 7: Test the Printer
- Test the calculator’s printing function to make sure the paper feeds correctly. Perform a simple calculation and hit the print command (often the “=” or “#” key on a printing calculator) to ensure it prints properly.
Step 8: Trim Excess Paper
- If there’s too much paper protruding from the printer slot, tear off the excess to keep the area neat.
- Always use the type of paper roll recommended by your Casio calculator model to prevent jams and ensure the best print quality.
- Avoid pulling too hard on the paper as it could cause a jam or misalignment within the printer mechanism.
- If you’re unsure of the exact steps for your specific model, you can usually find the user manual online on the Casio website, which will have detailed instructions for your model.
Remember, every Casio calculator model may have a slightly different method for loading paper, so if these general steps don’t match up with your calculator, it’s best to refer to the user manual for model-specific instructions.
