Impact Printer Set Up

Physical setup

Step 1: Unboxing the printer

Within the printer box, you should receive:

  1. The Impact Printer
  2. Ribbon
  3. Test Paper
  4. Power Plug
  5. Instructions

You would need to source an Ethernet cable on your own as it's not included in the printer box.

Step 2: Setting up the printer

  1. Plug the power cable into the back of the printer and connect it with the nearest power source
  2. Open up the printer by pulling on the lever
  3. Take your ribbon, making sure that it is pulled tight and insert it into the front of the printer
  4. Insert your test paper roll into the printer
  5. Close the front and back of the printer, and tear off the extra paper

Step 3: Connecting to the internet

You can connect to the internet either via ethernet cable or wifi adaptor. 

Via Ethernet cable without Wi-Fi adapter:

  1. Insert the ethernet cable to the back of the printer facing up
  2. Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to your internet modem
  3. The printer will need to stay connected via cable in the same location

Via Ethernet cable with Wi-Fi adapter:

  1. Connect the ethernet cable to the back of the printer facing up
  2. Connect the Wi-Fi adaptor into the USB port
  3. Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to your internet modem
  4. The printer would need to remain connected via ethernet during setup but can be unplugged once completed

Step 4: Retrieving the printer's IP address

You would now need to retrieve the printer's IP address to continue your setup

  1. Once printer is plugged in to internet modem, wait for red flashing light to turn green
  2. Once green, turn off the printer
  3. Turn on the printer while holding down the circle 'Feed' button
  4. Wait until it starts printing then let go
  5. Two pieces of paper will be printed
    1. The first can be discarded
    2. The second piece will print which includes your IP address
  6. Note down your printer's IP address for the online setup
