Question about Epson TM U210PD Matrix Label Printer

1 Answer

Epson U210PD printer ribbon is shredding and jamming in the machine. Could this be anything other than a pin head problem?

    I believe it has been installed correctly as they are changed by the same person regularly without problem. My initial thoughts was it could be an issue with a faulty pin and thank you for your advice re pin proximity to the ribbon.

Hi

Have you tried reseating the ribbon for the printer? chances are its not installedcorrectly. other factor as well is that the pins are to close to the ribbon and for you to adjust the lever you have to bring it to an epson certified servicer. call epson for authorized service center for this type of printer.

Printer head of fx 2175 one side jam making noice


The printer may need a service.

Dirt and grime on the print bar causes the head carriage to jam

It may also be caused by:
Damaged Gears
Faulty Form Starter Sensor
Snagged Ribbon

But i would start by just cleaning the bar thoroughly

Do note that cleaning the bar is just a temporary solution
The machine needs to be stripped and the bushes and all parts needs to be cleaned.

Do not attempt this if you dont have experience in this

Hi I work in a restaurant and we have a Epson TM-U220A Model M188A printer. The last few days the printer has not been printing on the White receipt paper. We've tried replacing the ink and it doesn't do...


If this is the thermal head model, you will need to have the print head replaced. These were also sold under the Dell label, so finding a used replacement printer may be more economical. If it takes ribbons, you will need:

Ribbons

This printer needs a ribbon cassette to print receipts.

I have an Epson LX-300 dot matrix. The problem is the print is smudged/with black lines patches along the printed matter. The ribbon mask is lost. I'm curious to know the purpose of this ribbon mask. Does...


The mask stops this sort of problem and the print head could do with cleaning so that the pins don’t get stuck. The ink coagulates over the years and causes the pins to jam and eventually tear up ribbons of just burn up the driver coils in the head assembly. The head face needs cleaning with a cotton bud or two or three with isopropyl alcohol to remove all the ink residue from the pins and shafts. If you can remove the head assembly this is much easier to do.

Problem with my Epson Dot Matrix printer


Chances are, you didn't installed the ribbon correctly...

A. Open the printer cover
B. Use a pin to guide the ribbon between the print head and the ribbon guide, then turn the ribbon tightening knob to help feed the ribbon into place, it shouldn't be twisted or creased.
C. Slide the print head from side to side to make sure it moves smoothly
