Laminator will not stop beeping


We just brought home a new Royal Sovereign Laminator. Plugged it in and turned it on. It will not stop the loud, annoying beep and is stuck on reverse. It's going right back to the store for a refund. Will not ask for another Royal. If you can't make it right, don't try to sell it!

First, you can get the exact visual design that you wanted and it will cost you considerably less. Second, laminate flooring can be installed above and below the grade unlike hardwood flooring. Moreover, the laminate flooring is installed without using any nails or glue which make it much easier to it yourself. Furthermore, laminate flooring is extremely durable, easy to maintain and can be replaced easily.

What is the difference between cold and hot laminators?


Hot laminators are the most common types of laminators. They use heat (220 to 300 degrees F) to apply the lamination. Hot laminators provide a better quality lamination that is more resistant to wear and tear. This is the preferred method of lamination for materials that are not effected by heat.

Cold laminators use pressure sensitive adhesives to bind the lamination film when the material being laminated is sensitive to heat. Certain inks in standard ink jet printers are known to have the ink melt in the machine. There are other types of printers that use heat sensitive paper. For these types of applications the cold laminator is the best choice.

Have a used Fellowes EXL a4 laminator. Need a manual or instructions for use. Thanks.


Set- up
The only assembly required for an @Home laminator is attaching the wire support rack, which ensures that the sheets coming out of the machine cool in a flat position and do not curl. Using the illustration on the inside of the manual cover as a reference, push the ends of the rack " into the holes ! in the back of the machine as far as they will go.
Operation
Your laminator works by means of two rollers, one on top of the other, each turning in the opposite direction to draw a plastic, open-sided pouch coated with adhesives through them and out of the machine. Understanding this simple mechanism will help you decide what materials you can laminate without risk of damage to your machine. You can feel confident laminating all materials that are flat and dry, for example, but should avoid those that:
• Contain liquids, gels, or even moisture, that could escape
• May crumble or otherwise disperse under pressure, or
• Are likely to break, as could glass or rigid metals and plastics.
With hot lamination, where the rollers are also heated, make sure you don't put anything into the pouch that could melt and leak into the machine.
Once you have checked the suitability of your contents, you need to decide whether to use cold or hot lamination. Cold lamination, also called self-adhesive lamination, bonds materials between an adhesive and a non-adhesive sheet solely by means of pressure. As a result, this method tends not to produce as tight a seal against water and the elements as
hot lamination, but can be useful for heat-sensitive materials, such as thermal paper or fragile documents. While the cold method used to be the only good way to laminate photographs, today's heated-roller technology enables you to achieve excellent results and is therefore probably the better choice.
5
The contents and the mode decided, the next step is to choose the right pouch for the job.
Hot and cold laminating pouches are especially designed for their separate purposes and cannot be substituted for one another. When it comes to pouch size and thickness, you should make sure that the one you buy is no wider than the entry # of your model and not thicker, together with the contents, than the capacity of your machine. If you are laminating paper of a standard size and weight, you can quickly see your pouch thickness options on
the selection guide stored under the machine:
• White and gray boxes indicate that the pouch/paper combination can be used
• No box on the table indicates that there is no combination possible with your machine.
If you find several pouch options for your document, take the one that best suits the purpose:
The thicker the pouch, the more rigid and resistant the laminated sheet will be. If you are not sure of the paper's weight or are laminating other materials, the combined thickness of the pouch and contents should be your guide. The maximum in this case is the equivalent of a stack of 6 to 7 sheets of standard office paper. (See Product Profile for details on capacity limits.)
If even the smallest size pouch will leave a lot of space around your contents or you want the lamination to conform to the shape of your contents, wait to cut it to size until after lamination: a laminating pouch is precision-cut to ensure minimal leakage of adhesives, and this cannot be replicated with scissors or a paper-cutter. You'll also find the pouch easier to cut when it is hardened.
How you arrange your contents in the selected pouch is important in both cold and hot modes. To produce professional-looking results and ensure a long working life for your machine, follow these simple guidelines (see illustration on the inside of the manual cover):
1. Lay contents as close as possible to the sealed edge of the pouch, which is the end you will be feeding into the machine. If the material is more than 1 cm or 1/2 inch from this edge, the rollers will not have enough traction to draw in the pouch and will turn continuously without advancing it.
2. Arrange multiple items close to each other in the pouch, with the edges no farther than 1 cm or 1/2 inch apart. If there is a larger gap between items, the rollers will slip into it and lose their traction. As above, the rollers will turn without advancing the pouch.
3. Leave a free margin around contents of at least 3 mm, or 1/8 inch, on the three unsealed sides of the pouch to guarantee a strong seal. This is a minimum, meaning you can have as much margin beyond this as you wish.
To begin laminating, place your machine on a work surface where you have enough room at the back to allow the full length of the pouch to clear the material exit '. Plug in the machine and press the power button &, which will start the rollers turning. If you plan to do laminate both cold and hot in one session, it makes sense to start with cold, so you don't have to wait for the machine to cool down. (This can take one to two hours.)
In either case, to save energy and reduce wear-and-tear on your machine, turn off the machine as soon as you are finished by pressing the power button &. If you forget, however, the machine has an automatic switch-off function, which causes it to turn itself off one hour after not being used.Cold Lamination
With the contents and the pouch you have selected at hand:
1. Turn temperature selector $ to . The machine will indicate its readiness by turning on
the green standby light % and giving an audible signal.
If the machine is at room temperature, this will be almost immediate.
2. Place contents in pouch in line with the guidelines (p. 5). Lay the pouch on a flat surfaceand open it so that the adhesive side, which is covered by a glossy protective sheet, is vertical.Place the contents face up onto the transparent, non-adhesive side, but do not closethe pouch.
3. Insert sealed edge of the open pouch into the entry, as
shown, bending the protective sheet backwards over the
machine and grasping its free edge. As the machine draws
in the pouch, keep holding on to the protector, which will be
peeled away from the adhesive side as the pouch moves
through. Although it is easier to take off the protector and
close the pouch before you feed it in, you will create air bubbles
and other irregularities that the machine will not be able
to even out.
The finished sheet will emerge from the material exit ' by itself. Remove it from the support
rack only after it has completely cleared the exit.
Hot lamination
With the contents and the pouch you have selected at hand:
1. Turn temperature selector $ to or . The boxes in the selection guide you used to
choose the pouch size and thickness also indicate what temperature setting you should use
with your pouch:
• If the box is white, use ,
• If the box is gray, use .
If you are not sure of the weight or thickness of the contents or pouch, you will avoid possible
damage if you start with the lower temperature. With the lower setting, the machine will take 5 minutes to warm up and with the higher, one minute longer. When the laminator has reached the setting you chose, it will indicate its readiness with a green standby light % and an audible signal.
2. Place contents in pouch in line with the guidelines (p. 5).
Unlike with cold laminating, the contents can be face down or up within the pouch. Close the pouch once the contents are arranged.
3. Insert sealed edge of the closed pouch into the entry #,
as shown, and release it as soon as the machine begins
to drawn it in, as shown in the illustration.
The finished sheet will emerge from the material exit ' by
itself. Remove it from the support rack only after it has completely cleared the exit.
7
Maintenance
To keep your laminator free of adhesives that could hurt the quality of your work, you should clean the rollers from time to time, or frequently, depending on how often you use the machine. The best way is to do this right after you have finished hot laminating, because the rollers will still be hot, which is necessary for the cleaning process.
To clean the rollers:
• Turn selector to if it is not already on this setting
• Wait for the readiness light and signal
• Insert the cleaning sheet included in the package, repeating one or two times
• Insert a plain white sheet of paper to test for remaining traces, and
• Reinsert the cleaning sheet, if necessary, and retest.
To clean the exterior of your machine, just wipe with a soft cloth dampened with plain water.

PVC HID 1000 cards were getting stuck/bent in the Lamination module of our DTC550 printer. Talked to the tech department where we bought the printer/lamination module. They suggest because we are using...


Turning down the lam temp and dwell on the lam unit should have no effect on image color - they affect the processes only AFTER the printing of the card is complete. Make sure you were making adjustments to the LAMINATION settings, not the printing settings.

As to the noise, squeeks and groans emanating from the lam unit usually means mis-loaded lam film. Check the loading of the lam film in the printer and make sure it is not binding on the spools, and that the spools turn smoothly. Other than that, it could just be your printer showing signs of age. They have been out of production for more than 5 years, and do break down with age and usage.
