Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Posted by Anonymous on
I've had some issues with this. It mostly happens with thick paper for me. I gently push the paper down when the printer starts to print.

Unfortunately, this website is not a repair shop, but I'll give you what help I can....
Printhead problems are not repairable in the US or Europe any longer. You best bet is to upgrade to an MD-5500, which you can find here: http://www.alps-supplies.com

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.

Try cleaning the print head as described in the user guide. The printers can be touchy, but if you want to print white, foils, or metallic inks, there is very little else out there. To get the most out of the printer, you need to be a sophisticated user. It's not for the faint of heart.

If you remove the cover to the printer, you will have better access to the rollers. Once the cover is off, you can use tweezers to remove the paper.
