Title (EN) TAPE PRINTER
(FR) IMPRIMANTE SUR BANDE
Abstract:
(EN) A tape printer is provided that can recognize whether a tape cassette is installed at a proper position. The tape printer includes a plurality of detecting switches that protrude toward a side surface of the tape cassette installed in a cassette housing portion. If all the detecting switches are in an off state (no at S3), a message is displayed on a liquid crystal display to indicate that no tape cassette is installed (S5). If all the detecting switches are in an on state, a message is displayed to indicate that the tape cassette is not installed at the proper position (S9). Further, if a part of the detecting switches is in the on state (no at step S7), based on a combination of the on and off states of the detecting switches, a type of the tape cassette is determined and displayed (S11 and S13).
(FR) L'invention concerne une imprimante sur bande qui peut reconnaître si une cassette est installée dans une position correcte. Cette imprimante sur bande comprend une pluralité de commutateurs de détection qui font saillie vers une surface latérale de la cassette installée dans une partie de logement de cassette. Si tous les commutateurs de détection sont à l'état bloqué (pas à l'étape S3), un message est affiché sur un écran à cristaux liquides pour indiquer qu'aucune cassette n'est installée (S5). Si tous les commutateurs de détection sont à l'état passant, un message est affiché pour indiquer que la cassette n'est pas installée dans la position correcte (S9). En outre, si une partie des commutateurs de détection est à l'état passant (pas à l'étape S7), d'après une combinaison des états passants et bloqués des commutateurs de détection, un type de la cassette est déterminé et affiché (S11 et S13).
