The mailing system uses gummed or adhesive tape. A red stripe appears along its edge approximately 900 mm from the end to indicate a low tape condition. Replace the tape when the stripe appears. You can install a new roll before the system actually runs out of tape.
Note: If you do not use Pitney Bowes supplied tape, you will not be able to determine when the tape is running out and this may cause a jam. The red stripe on the tape notifies you that you are running low on tape. There is also a black stripe that tells the machine when it is out of tape. When the system detects the black stripe on the tape it stops the machine. At this point there is still a small amount of tape on the roll.
Open the supplies cover.
Remove the old tape core from the feeding area.
