We have a Citizen CLP-521 label printer that spits 3 blank labels

We use the printer to print address labels from an MS Access database, everything was fine first thing this morning but now it just spits out 3 blank labels and all the LEDs on the front flash. HELP

    I load the labels correctly and press stop so the printer is ready to print. Trouble is it won't print and when i press feed it spits out a few labels then error flashes and it starts bleeping.

LABEL NOT PRINTING CLEARLY


On the right hand side of the print head is a blue thumb wheel. ensure this is set position 9, this will give you full width print. This adjustment is for setting narrow width labels.

When I try printing, the label sheet comes out without being printed then stops and the "condition/error" lights blink.


First you need to check the blink rate:
If fast this denotes a ribbon error - check ribbon is installed correctly.
If slow this denotes a label sense error - check the sensors are clean and are correctly aligned.

When trying to print and condiition and error lights keep coming on. also when pressing feed it feeds through more than one label and then shows the condition and error lights.


Most common cause for this is sensors not positioned correctly. Make sure that the white arrow on the top sensor is aligned with the bottom sensor. See you user manual.

Also check that the senor used is the correct one for the maedia (i.e. black mark or transmissive).

I am a Reseller and one of my client is having Citizen CLP-7202e. due to the faulty print head we have tried to change the print head and after changing a new print head, printer is not printing...


I have used this type of printer before. Long ago when it was called the C-ITOH. However, never had to change the print head before. I would imagine that if you did - all the adjustments would need changing. Bad Gap would skip labels and bad pressure would make them too light or too dark. If there are any vertical lines (even faint) the print head is damaged. Also, these things are very specific as to media vs ink roller. You cannot use a paper ink roller with mylar labels. Vise versa works but those rolls are more expensive. I am sure you have tested this already but you point pretty exclusively to the "new" print head with your testing. Sounds like you have answered your own question. I would do some continuity tests on the head to see if it carries any current at all. Good Luck!

How do I print just one mailing label without running through an entire sheet time I print using an Epson LQ-590 and printing from the mail merge option in MS Word (MS XP)? In other words, when I print...


I assume you are using a sheet of labels, such as the typical 3 x 10 sheet. Word sets up the mail-merge document for printing the whole sheet, so if you print just one or two labels, you will `waste' the rest.
One way of using that sheet over is to create a mail merge that contains blank `dummy' addresses. It is rather involved and at best time consuming, and considered not worthwhile to save a partial sheet.
I service printers, and personally do not recommend that any label sheet be re-used. The printer curls the paper, in some cases fuses it, and causes the corners of the labels to be exposed, and possibly get caught in the printer (I have removed a lot of labels from inside printers)
