    This doesn't explain why it would not even print a card from the printer test screen.

There are long axis print voids. Does the print head need to be replaced?

Before replacing your printhead, try cleaning the printer, run the cleaning card and also clean the printhead using the alcohol saturated swab, zebra part number 105909-169. In some cases that will fix your issue, if not your printhead needs to be replaced. If replacing your printhead, please make sure your card stock are clean and don't have sharp edges as that could be the cause for a scratched/burned pixel on the printhead.

My printer makes a very thin stripe in the print on all cards, it looks like a dust-particle problem, but the print head seems to be clean, can there be something else?

Looks like you may have a dust particle on your print head. Try cleaning it with a cleaning card. If it does not go away, it may be that your print head is slightly damaged, which means you will have to change the print head.

Clean prinnter massage

The Zebra printer displays the Clean Printer message when the printer prints a 1000 cards.

This is to maintain printer and ensure good print quality.

The way to clear the message is to get cleaning cards and run a cleaning routine.

The CD that comes with the printer will run a video showing how to run the cleaning cards through the printer. Printer needs 2 unique cleaning cards (1 short & 1 Long)

Poor Quality Print on Zebra 105SL direct thermal

How many labels has the printer printed? Because it sounds to me like you just need to replace the print head.

They are around $400 from whomever your supplier is, and very easy to replace.
