Question about Alps MD 1300 Thermal Printer
Yes. It's very easy. Turn the printer off, unplug it, and disconnect the printer cable. Insert two sheets of paper, and make sure the paper feed is set to automatic. You need to have a black cartridge loaded into the 1st slot.
Plug in the printer and wait for the lights to turn off. Press and hold the power button at the same time press and hold the "ready/Insert" button. Release the power button, but keep holding the "ready/Insert" button for at least 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, release the "ready/Insert" button and quickly press it again. The printer will start the selftest.
For the 1300, the number of bands printed will be on page two. On the 1st page, there will be a black bar on the bottom of the page. It should be a solid black bar with no lines - this is the test for bad elements on the print head.
