GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
Use only Brother TZ tapes with this machine. Do not use tapes that do not have the mark.
Do not disassemble or modify the machine/AC adapter.
Do not clean the machine with alcohol or other organic solvents. Only use a soft, dry cloth.
Do not touch the print head mechanism. Use a soft wipe (e.g. a cotton swab) or the optional
print head cleaning cassette (TZ-CL3) when cleaning the print head.
To avoid injuries, do not touch the cutter's edge.
To prevent damage or breakage, do not press on the LCD display.
Do not put any foreign objects into or heavy objects on the machine.
Do not leave any rubber or vinyl on the machine for an extended period of time, otherwise
the machine may be stained.
Do not get the machine/AC adapter/power plug wet, such as by handling them with wet
hands or spilling beverages on to them.
Do not expose the machine/AC adapter to extremely high temperatures or high humidity.
Never leave them on the dashboard or in the back of your car, near heaters or other hot
appliances. Keep them out of both direct sunlight and rain.
Avoid using the machine in extremely dusty places.
Depending on the environmental conditions and the applied settings, some characters or
symbols may be difficult to read.
Do not pull on the tape being fed from the P-touch labeler, otherwise the tape cassette
or P-touch labeler may be damaged.
Do not attempt to cut the tape while printing or feeding since this will damage the tape.
Do not try to print labels using an empty tape cassette set in the P-touch labeler. Doing so
will damage the print head.
Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adapter if you do not intend to use the machine
for an extended period of time. (Note: When power is disconnected for more than three
minutes, all text, format settings and any text files stored in the memory will be cleared.)
Do not use old and new batteries together or mix alkaline batteries with other type batteries, or set the
positive and negative end in the wrong position. Otherwise, the batteries may leak or be damaged.
Do not use metallic articles, such as tweezers or metallic pen, when changing the batteries.
Always use the specified voltage and the suggested AC adapter (MODEL-G1) for this
machine to prevent any damage or failure.
To prevent fire or electric shock, make sure that the plug of the AC adapter is fully inserted
into the power outlet. Do not use an outlet that is loose.
POWER SUPPLY
Batteries
Since this machine is compact and portable, it can be used anywhere by installing six AAA
alkaline batteries (LR03). When changing the batteries, always replace all six at the same time.
1 Press in on the rough area at the top end of the machine and
fold open the back cover.
2 If batteries are already installed, remove the tape cassette (if one is

positive end of the bottom three batteries pointing toward the top
end of the machine, and the positive end of the top three
batteries pointing in the opposite direction.
Note: When replacing the batteries, insert the new ones within
three minutes of removing the old ones, otherwise all text
shown in the display and any text files stored in the
memory will be lost (unless the machine is plugged into
an outlet with the AC adapter).
4 Securely close the back cover, making sure that it snaps into place.
Optional AC adapter (Included in PT-1260VP)
The AC adapter allows you to use this machine wherever an electrical outlet is available.
