The ALPS MD5500 is capable of both making white undercoat for CMYK colors and white overcoat (more opaque than white undercoat).
MD5500 is produced mainly for the Japanese market only with a Japanese driver.
But you can get the printer here- with english driver :-)): http://www.alps-supplies.com/alps-md5500-microdry-printer-with-english-drivers-p-28.html

How to disactivate or bypass the OHP sensor on the phaser for semi opaque paper (calc paper)?


Hi Rich,
Thank you for your lengthy and informative question that does help.
My first thoughts:
Did you try and tell the driver what particular type of paper you wanted to print on such as none Xerox recommended.
A thought just occurred if you were wanting to print transparencies then the printer would have to print strong colours at 100% because once you place the image on a OHP the image would look really washed out.
All the Xerox printers I've ever worked on don't have sensors that look at the opaqueness of the media, they do however have transparency sensors because once the edge of the paper has been detected a jam could occur, so lever type sensors are used to actually feel the media.
Good luck.

Do the colour prints when printing RGB look all right?

If so, the printer is working.

What sort of CMYK are you trying to print? CMYK EPS prints, maybe?

If so, the the fault is one of not using the correct software; the printer is working, it is just not interpreting the encapsulated PostScript to reproduce a CMYK image. Use different software capable of reading CMYK EPS files. Photoshop is one such piece of software.

My problem is in my Alps MD 1300. Two layers of white print without problems, but when I print CMYK over white horizontal lines appear about ruining my work. I use "white Based (MDC-OPWH)"...


The MDC-OPWH is Opaque White. It's meant to be used as an overcoat when making things like Iron-On transfers when they are applied on dark backgrounds. Regular white is used for undercoating for things like waterslide decals.

How do I scan transparancies? With the holder in place on the flat bed the whole frame scans and not the slide.


You need to put a piece of white paper, the same size as your slide on the back of your slide. Your scanner doesn't recognize the edges of the transparancy (it is looking through it), so if you place a white paper on top of your transparancy it wil recognize the edges.

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.

The following is my exact problem...can it be repaired? Hard to tell if piece is broken. "My faxes are not printing. The error message says there is a paper mismatch and tells me to remove the transparency...


Somewhere, your printer has a sensor (probably a light and a mirror and a detector), to try to distinguish between transparency media and opaque media (such as a sheet of paper).

So, that sensor either has a piece of transparency media stuck inside it, or it is otherwise misdiagnosing what media is between the light-emitter and the light-detector, and thus is claiming that there is transparency media loaded into the paper-tray.

It sounds like you need to take the printer to a qualified technician.

Line on page using ARDF


Good news!! This should be an easy fix.

If the line appears only when you are using the doc feeder, and it looks like a straight line that you have drawn with a ruller, then it is on the glass. Not the large glass where the copy lays, but the narrow glass. Make a copy using the ARDF, paying close attention to it's orientation (which side is up and which is down). Then, take the copy you made and lay it next to the narrow **** glass in exactly the same direction as it went through the feeder. Wherever your line is, there is something on the glass in that spot. Take your thumb and rub with a good bit of pressure in this spot. You might not see anything, but trust me, there is something there. It might be as small and transparent as a spot of ink. A flashlight will help. You might also try using rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth to clean it. Hope some of this helps,

Chad

Be sure you removed the little transparent protector strips from the new replacement cartridges, or they will not register correctly.

You can try cleaning the feed rollers and manually clean the ink cartridge carrier contacts. The issue may also be the encoder which is a narrow band of transparent plastic behind the ink cartridge carriers. Try to clean this. Be careful as this can break easily.
