My Alps 550 slows then stops printing after a page

My Alps 5500 occasionaly slows then stops printing after a page and refuses to respond. When I restart the pc, a window pops up saying "AL1CSM.EXE" not responding. After restart the alps has hidden print tasks that I can't seem to clear. The tasks are the print job I was trying to do. Is the AL1CSM.EXE part of the driver? Is there a fix? Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, this website is not a repair shop, but I'll give you what help I can....

Printhead problems are not repairable in the US or Europe any longer. You best bet is to upgrade to an MD-5500, which you can find here: http://www.alps-supplies.com

It sounds like the head has been damaged. Unfortunately, there is no fix for this, as Alps stopped production of these printers years ago, and now do not offer repairs for these printers.

If you still want a dye-sub capable Alps printer, the only model available is the MD-5500, which you can find here: http://www.alps-supplies.com

SOURCE: Looking for an Alps MD5000 driver for Mac OSX

There are no OS X drivers for the 5000.
If your version of OS X is old enough, you can run the )S 9 driver under classic.

SOURCE: How to remove cover off Alps md 1000 printer -

Remove the 4 screws holding the main feed tray. Then GENTLY pry the tabs on both edges of the printer. They are really tight! The fit is great but once you break the "seal" so to say the whole cover just pops off.

Hi there
You can try see if this may do it.

Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Why alps md-1000 printer not responding after driver installed


Can you provide more details about the problem? Will the printer print a self test page? What OS, computer, and cable connection are you using? The ALPS printers were designed to work with Windows 95 using a serial port internal to the motherboard. There is a driver that supports a USB port and Windows XP available. XP will automatically install the MS driver using the plug and play feature. The MS driver is useless and it shouldn't be used, but XP will default to it. Don't delete this driver, but rename. There are no native drivers for Windows 7 or higher.

How to open option setting tab on MD5500


Try using the property settings for the printer. I'm using Win XP SP2. Go to Printers and Faxes, and right click the ALPS 5500 printer. The properties setting should be at the bottom of the menu. Alternatively, you can access the printer properties settings when in application by clicking on File, Print, and then properties.

Cartridge changer error can be bad. Inspect and clean the changer. Try changing the order of the cartridges in the holder. Any effect? With just the black cartridge installed, try printing an internal self print test. Does that work?

Alps MD 1000 self tests okay, but printing gives "nonvolatile error" (fast blink)


This is a symptom of the following:

You are running XP, and have installed SP3 and, you are using the microsoft driver bundled with XP.

The solution:

The m$ driver will have created a printer with "(MS)" as a suffix. Leave this intact, as it will cause major trouble on every reboot if you delete it.
Download the appropriate driver from the Files section in the Alps YahooGroup found at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/Alps/
With your printer unplugged, install the downloaded driver
Shut down your computer and hook up the printer
Reboot
XP will detect the printer, and create a new printer in Control Panel without the "(MS)" suffix
Make the new printer your default printer.

The reason why you do not delete the printer with the "(MS)" suffix, is because every time you reboot, XP will ignore the fact that you have the correct Alps driver loaded, and will create a new printer using the m$ drivers, and set it to default. Of course, the m$ Alps driver is fundamentally broken

Prints 1/3 to 1/2 a page then I get an error


Sounds like you have a problem with the anti-curl motor.

To confirm, you will need to print a test page from a computer that has the Alps drivers loaded (Not the drivers that Microsoft ship with XP, as the Alps drivers have a printer monitor that will inform you of any problems that the printer encounters, the Microsoft drivers do not). You can get them by joining the alps and alpsdecal groups at http://groups.yahoo.com. They are in the Files section of one of the groups.

Assuming you are using Alps drivers, and not the Microsoft drivers that are loaded by XP, you can disable the anti-curl function by the following process:

1. Click File->Print
2. Click the Properties button in the dialogue that opens.
3. Check the checkbox labelled "Print on backside" in the Media Type box of the properties dialogue.
