SOURCE: Do you repair Alps MD 5000 printer

Unfortunately, this website is not a repair shop, but I'll give you what help I can....

Printhead problems are not repairable in the US or Europe any longer. You best bet is to upgrade to an MD-5500, which you can find here: http://www.alps-supplies.com

It could be a serious error with the cartridge changer. Take a close look at the chagner for anything that looks bent or mis-aligned. Also, may sure all of the positioning sensors are clean.

SOURCE: White ink printing with alps MD 5000

To print white, you need to use the spot color option in the printer properties. The object to be printed must be all black. It seems counter to what you might think, but the spot color mode will print the solid black areas as the selected spot color.

I just want to run the self-test, but my MD 5000 won't do it. When I finish the button sequence to start the self test, it just makes some crunching & whining noises, then the power and error...


Check to make sure you have the dark grey ink cartridges installed in the printer. The blue (photo) and the Econo Black cartridges cannot be used for the self test.

The "error" light is on


Make sure you have the standard ALPS ink cartridges in the printer (dark gray). I've seen people getting a flashing error light when trying to use the photo cartridges (dark blue) to print.

When you moved, did you secure the print head and remove the ink cartrdiges? A Changer Error message is bad. Check the changer for any broken or bent parts.

Cartridge changer error can be bad. Inspect and clean the changer. Try changing the order of the cartridges in the holder. Any effect? With just the black cartridge installed, try printing an internal self print test. Does that work?

RECYCLING of ALPS MD-1000 Color Printer


You can buy OKI MD 5000 Cartridges or Citizen Printiva Cartridges. Are the same.
There are also resellers that sells only ribbons to exchange in cartridges. http://www.refillx.com/
