I have an error message on my unilam 1200 ph laminator from unibind. Where can I find a manual to identify problem?

When I turn on the laminator it doesn't go through the usual warm up, instead it puts up a right pointing triangle. It doesn't heat up as usual.

SOURCE: machine error a1 - Manual Clean

First things first for brother ph:

Those cant be cleaned from outside! The cleaning procedure is alwasy from the inside by help of the original ink
(which contains additives of special cleaning fluids). This is due to the very special technique of electro-piezo ph instead of bubblejets (canon system) which can be cleaned sometimes from outside.

Another fact is that due to the tube (capillaries) system its quite often possible that air bubbles have grown when transported from refilled carts to ph. This air bubbles prevent the nozzels to work well or itz seems to the user that the channel is clogged.

Some advice to generic ink:
do refill original carts only. This is because of several reasons (prevent staining, malfunction and more trouble).
Buy refill DYE-ink (universal ink from jettec or inktec work excellent) and some glycerol (85%- glycerin alc.) at the drugstore. Mix 2ml glycerol with 10ml of C/Y/M ink very well and refill the C/Y/M carts with that: drill a hole of 2mm into the top of the cart (e.g. O of brother brand name).
For bk mix 1.5ml glycerol with 15ml bk dye ink and shake very, very well before refilling the cart.

So here is what you can do to get rid of the clogging:
Plz use 4 new, full ORIGINAL brother carts (quite costly, I know)..
Place them in and make sure they are secured.
Press menu then start bk then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode.
press 7-6-4 then start bk copy.
machine will initialize the carts, by refreshing ink in tubes and ph, delete air bubbles and do some power cleaning.
when finished press 7-6-3 then start bk copy.
Machine will do an extra power purge.

when finished leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9.
Do a test print after machine comes up again.
If your lucky your generic ink hasnt destroyed the ph!
Otherwise you need a new mfc due to the fact, that a ph is very costly!

BTW: Be very carefully when clicking the ph cover back into position! Wachtch the upper leftside: dont break the small platic guide which leads the ph on the rail.


And...

to delete error A1 (scanner top open) simply make sure, that the top is in right position ;-) (If you have read out the error code from maintenance as an error: this is NO error! Its in info which have all brother printers when the scanner is opened the first time ;-)

Make sure your laminator is heated up properly before feeding material through. Usually, for a low-end laminator, you will wait anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes before it is completely heated up, allowing you to use it. There should be a red button that will tell you it is NOT ready yet, and a green button will tell you it is.

SOURCE: There was what looked like

It would be helpful to know what kind of printer. Is it ink-jet or laser? Color or black and white? What brand and model number?

Generically speaking, what you see as steam could be a bit of toner coming out of the machine if it is a laser. Orange (or red) usually tells that there is a problem, Have you ever changed the drum?

Are you using re-manufactured cartridges? Sometimes these have defects and cause problems with the printing. The noises you hear could be that the machine is cleaning the heads, if it is an inkjet.

If it is a "low end" printer with three years of use, it might be time to replace it. If you really like the machine, consider using some cleaning supplies specially designed for the type of printer you have and do a little bit of maintenance.

First time using, says error #1200


The 1200 error indicates that either the cartridge/s is not properly installed or snapped in the cartridge carrier, the encoder strip (transparent strip behind the cartridge carrier) is out of place or something is blocking the cartridge carrier's path.

Unibind machine will not heat. Does heat if turned upside down. Can it be fixed?


I think it can be fixed. It appears that there is some kind of loosing inside the machine and when the machine is turned upside down it heats up because the electrical contact is made. If you can work inside such electronics, you may try to fix. IF NOT DONT TRY IT (there is a danger of electrical shock). Instead you may refer any repair/ service professional .

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

We are not able to send faxes,the error message is 1200. The reference number for the fax is x4270.
