Replace S4M Platen Roller

Hi all,

The Platen Roller on one of my company's S4M is damaged. I don't think it's too difficult to replace it, but I also don't want to ruin it. Can any advice proper procedure to repair it, and maybe where to locate the part for it?

Continous thermal media is getting wrapped around the platen roller.

Use scissors to cut the media 1" outside the printer, because if you tear it off it will be too short and will curl down into the platen roller again. Hope this helps!

The automatic document feeder doesn't grab the paper unles the sheet of paper is pushed. Even then, feeding doesn't work well. Can you help?

Generally, you could clean the document feed rollers with WD-40, or a platen cleaner, but better yet, you should replace the pads and feed roller and I think you could do it yourself with my roller kit:

A piece of paper is jammed at the out feed roller. I was able to get some of it out but not all. Is that roller removable? Does the Platen come off so that I can access this roller from the top? Thank you,...

You probably have a damaged fuser. It really takes a skilled tech to remove and replace the fuser. A new fuser costs about $200 and an hour labor to install it.

Jammed S4M Printer

Do what the other guys did and cut the labels and pull it with a set of plyers. Does not seem to be a better way

Problem with copier

Drum blade worn out, dirty carona/charge roller or damaged upper heat roller are the main probabilities, Not sure what you mean by platen on a copier, What colour are the steaks? Are they always the same? Do they move? Are you using a doc feeder or placing on copyglass? Are the streaks traveling in the same direction as the paper or across it? These answers will point the way to identifi your problem.
