2. Make sure the printer is off, the power, data, and error indicators will be off.


3. Press the power button and hold it down for a few seconds until the power indicator light begins to alternately blink green and orange.  This indicates that the battery is being prepared for a deep charge cycle.  The battery will start charging and the power indicator will blink green until the battery is charged.

Please NOTE: To end the charge cycle before the battery is completely charged press the power button twice quickly.
