Remove the 4 screws holding the main feed tray. Then GENTLY pry the tabs on both edges of the printer. They are really tight! The fit is great but once you break the "seal" so to say the whole cover just pops off.

Can our ALPS MD 1000 printer work with Windows 7? We used it when old computer had Windows XP on it, but that crashed and bought HP with Windows 7 now... we need Alps to make waterslides for custom rod...


There are NO Windows 7 drivers for the ALPS MD printer. I've read that you can run an XP virtual mode on Win7 that allows you to use the printer. If you are comfortable tweaking the OS, it's a workable option. I picked-up an old (and cheap) laptop on Craigslist and printed my decals from there.

Here are a couple of suggestions: Try taking the cover off the printer and check for dust near the paper sensor. While you have the cover removed, give it a good spray with a can of air. Be careful, not to break any parts or to pull out wires. Or you can try setting the paper option in the driver to the thick paper. This sometimes helps when I have a paper feed problem.

How do reset a belt that jumped off its puuley for alps 1000 printer?


How comfortable are you with tinkering with the printer? The cover can be taken off by removing two screws on the bottom. It takes a little pulling and twisting to remove the cover. You have to be very careful. Once the cover is off, you should be able to loop the belt around the pulley.

Error message with grinding noise as driver cycles


Make sure the little spring loaded side fingers that grab and hold the cart onto the printhead are not broken. With the unit off, slowly move the carriage all the way left then right to check for a good belt and free movement. Take the carts out and tilt the printer back and forth to see if something has broken off inside, check to make sure nothing has fallen into the paper rollers from behind.

MD 1000 Thermal Printer: I need a driver for ALPS MD1000 printer that will ...


Go to the ALPS Yahoo Group. They have an extensive file section with drivers. Windows will use the default plug and play driver for the printer. The MS version is very limited. You should rename the MS driver to something else like "MS Alps Driver" and then install the ALPS driver you find at the Yahoo Group. These will give you full functionality.

good luck

We have Alps MD 1000 which makes a grinding noise when we power it up, and then the error light comes on. Is this normal, or is what could be the problem? Where would we need to send it for repairs?...


All ALPS printers make noise when they are turned on. The error light is not normal. Do you have cartridges in the printer? there are two kinds: ones with gray plastic cassettes and ones with dark blue plastic cassettes. For the 1000, you want the gray ones. Are the cartridges installed correctly? Side B should be facing up.
