Question about Kodak Professional 8500 Thermal Printer
Printer will make two passes using yellow and magenta and will not complete the print with cyan (or blue). After two passes, I get error (red) indicator and media light goes off. Tried printing images and test pages and they're both doing the same thing. Need help, I've wasted 8-9 papers. Thx.
This sort of thing is usually due to dust/dirt on the sensor that detects the gaps in the dye-sub film. Half of the sensor pair is in cover that flips up to replace the ribbon, the other half is under the plastic bar. I clean them with a dry Q-tip or blow them off with canned air.
