Failed or failing print heads are usually considered something that is outright replaced rather than repaired, I don't about your specific model though.

Zebra printing out blank labels.


Thermal printers need to get hot to heat the special paper, which when heated prints an image.

Click here for a more detail explanation.

Usually the thermal head dies, it can be repaired, claim warranty support.
Check if your thermal printer is getting hot, if not then confirms above.

Take care!

As the tickets print there is a blank line through the receipt. I was told at one time that this is because of the thermal head. How do we fix this?


Clean the thermal head surface.... If the line is still there, then the driver for the head probably has a shorted device. This will require repair at a shop capable of this work.

The error light on the Epson TM-T88IV keeps flashing whats wrong with it?


The following is from the Epson Users Manual:
Troubleshooting
No lights on the control panel
Check the power supply cable connections and the power outlet.
ERROR LED on (not flashing) with no printing
If PAPER OUT is on, the roll paper is not installed or is near the end.
If PAPER OUT is off, the printer cover is not closed properly.
ERROR LED flashing with no printing (and no paper jam)
Printing stops if the head overheats and resumes automatically when it cools.
If overheating is not the cause, turn the printer off, and after 10 seconds, back on.
Removing Jammed Paper
CAUTION:
Do not touch the thermal head because it can be very hot after printing.
1. Turn the printer off and press the cover open button.
2. Remove jammed paper, reinstall the roll, and close the cover.
3. If paper is caught in the cutter and you cannot open the printer cover, open
the cutter cover as shown in illustration J.
4. Turn the knob until you see a triangle in the opening. This returns the cutter
blade to the normal position. There is a label near the cutter to assist you. See
illustration K.
5. Close the cutter cover.
6. Open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper.
Cleaning the Thermal Head
CAUTION:
After printing, the thermal head can be very hot. Be careful not to touch it and
to let it cool before you clean it. Do not damage the thermal head by touching
it with your fingers or any hard object.
Turn off the printer, open the printer cover, and clean the thermal elements of the
thermal head with a cotton swab moistened with an alcohol solvent (ethanol, or
IPA).
Epson recommends cleaning the thermal head periodically (generally every
3 months) to maintain receipt print quality.

It sounds like your print head is overheating. Clean as instructed above.

Prints have a thin white line across all the images printed. Everything else works and prints are ok outside of the thin white line running horizontal across the 5x7 prints.


  • Thermal head — generates heat; prints on paper
  • Platen — a rubber roller that feeds paper
  • Spring — applies pressure to the thermal head, causing it to contact the thermo-sensitive paper
  • Controller boards — for controlling the mechanism
I think that you may need to replace your thermal head, A line means there is a place that the head can not head or it cannot recieve data

Thermal Ribbon has a wrinkle


The thermal print head is damaged. You can try to clean it with a thermal printer head cleaner. That will only help if it is just clogged up with thermal print ink.
