You should purchase a printer kit. This is a common problem I have encoutntered on this machine and this machine is identical to the Seca CT6I. I have ordered the printer kit from Seca in the UK, the part number is 9740490024 at a cost of £70. It is a straightforward repair.
If the unit print lightly or not printing anything at all?
The most common causes for not printing ECGs is one of those:
1- Too little heat on the stylus
2- Insufficient stylus pressure on the paper
1- Using an insulated probe, such as a screwdriver, gently press the stylus onto the paper.
2- If a dark line appears on the paper, the problem is too little pressure, but if no dark line appears, the problem is not enough heat.
Those are some examples of ECG malfunctions and troubleshooting however there are to many more problems that you can find in ECG equipment. If the problem is not on this short list you can contact us. Or another Medical Repair Organization (MROs).
