Question about Alps MD 5000 Thermal Printer
I have a little more info on my printing problem. In front of the Platten there is a long black plastic piece that tilts up and down as needed when printing. If I reach in and hold this piece tilted up, my full page will print. If I don't do it, it will stop after 1/3 to 1/2 prints. There is a small piece underneath the tilting piece that runs on a belt right to left that makes this piece tilt up and down. It appears that this tilting is needed to change carts. (Down to change carts, Up to print). I only need a black cart as I'm printing a diagnotic test (hold power & Ready etc). The small piece appears to move too far to the left causing the tilting piece to move into the wrong position. Any ideas how to fix this problem?
This is not for changing carts, it's for the anti-curl function. You need to attach your printer to a computer, load the driver, try a test print from the computer, and check to see if the printer is reporting an Anti-curl motor error
