Open Front  Cover For Maintenance

Open  the top plexi front cover and look for  hole in the upper right corner.  Fold a  piece of letter paper in half and roll in into a cone from one corner.  Pinch the end so that it will go down into the slot where there is a limit switch.




Once the paper is inserted, the printhead carriage will begin traversing to the left then back home.



Once the lid is open one can see plainly what is happening with the carriage and belt movment.



Using a good light, notice that the cutter is on the left inside of the printer. Sometimes the printhead carriage becomes caught up in the cutter, when and if the cutter goes bad.  The idea then is to remove the cutter, from the outside and see if the carriage becomes free.



Cutter replacement instructions come with the new cutter.

*NOTE TO SELF:  When the cover is open, everything is exposed. 
Keep hands and fingers out of there unless you know what you are doing..

This is a journal about my printers. These are my own personal notes about repairs and maintenance
I have done to my printers.  I have made this web site mainly for my own benefit so that I have a record of what I have done.  It is free for anyone to view. If you use this information do so at your own risk - I assume no responsibility for errors.
