There is one opto device mounted in black plastic housing in the paper guide rail. On a Lemur with auto cut the cut position should be a 1/16”-1/8” away from the ticket perforation on the end of the ticket that comes out of the printer. On a Lemur without auto cut the ticket perforation should line up with the top edge of the cabinet when you tear upwards.

The following steps should be done.

  1. The opto assembly may be moved forward or backwards to achieve the desired cut or tear location.
  2. Sliding the opto forward (in the ticket feed direction) will increase the ticket travel before it is cut or torn. Sliding the opto backwards will decrease the ticket travel before it is cut or torn.
  3. Slide the opto assembly a little bit in the desired direction. Press the TEST button on the printer to print out some self-test tickets.
  4. If the cut or tear position is not in the desired location then repeat steps 2-3.
