You need to lubricate the shaft that the carrage runs on. If you dont have the correct lubricant, use sewing machine oil. Switch the machine off and using a cleaning fluid such as methelated spirits or benzine, carefully clean the shaft. Take care not to damage the encoder strip (plastic strip running just above the shaft, its also sharp, dont cut yourself) Also clean the outside of the bushes on either side of the head unit. Then with your hand move the head unit to the middle of the machine and put ONE drop of oil on either side of the head making sure you dont mess any and also making sure it goes to the back and front of the shaft. Move the head slowly left and right, spreading the oil outwards. If necessary use a second drop but do not over oil the shaft under any circumstances, the more oil the more dust builds up. This will solve your problem.

Paper cutter


You should try replacing the cutter assembly with a new one. They are rather inexpensive ($50) to purchase and easy to install.

The only other thing I can think would cause your problem is if something is stuck in the groove by the cutter guide that would cause it to disengage while cutting.

Can't find cutter. could it have fallen into machine. the clip that holds it is there. This happened after trying to clear a paper jam


Cutter unit having press & release system, by mistake its released, it might be fallen in paper bin.. You can see there is a cut at right side near blur lever,pull cutter bush up to there & load the cutter into cutter bush. Once hearing click sound manually confirm its fixed properly or not.. once its confirmed, push cutter in to park area, power on the printer..

Is not cutting and cutter is on, also, it is printing double lines


Fault: Double line & paper is not cutting.
>Check encoder strip, any damage or dirty?
>Clean encoder strip, replace it..
Reason why its not cutting?: Carriage moves to left side to lock & bring the cutter to cut the paper, but if its not reaching proper calculated destination due to dirty or damaged encoder, it wont lock the cutter to bring it out result paper wont cut even cutter in on condition..

Cutter Problem


the cutter has that bushing attached to act as a tire as it travels across the scan axis, these infrequently wear out and cause the carriage to basically drag the blade behind causing your uneven cut pattern, the cutter must be replaced. If you need direction on how to do so please contact me
