The cutting mechanism is most likely worn and needs to be replaced.

I have a sony UP-980CE thermal printer which is having an image quality issue, where the video fades lighter right to left on the film

This can be caused by several things. The first is the door has been hit so it not aligning properly, second is that he platen roller could be worn and the third is that the spring that holds down tension on the head is sprung. 90% of the time its the door damaged because they hang out of the c-arms and people strike them against objects. I have been working on Sony medical products since 1993

Did you set the computer to Diagnostic Mode by using a paper clip or scan tool connected to the ALDL connector underneath the steering column? Most GM's 1981 and later may need to short pins A & B to set the timing as well as disconnecting the vacuum advance.

How do you load paper into the printing calculator?

Cut paper at a 45 degree angle and load into back slot with angle (apex) of paper to the right of machine when facing it. Be sure to push it thru when loading. You should see tip next to calculator number wheel. Hit the additon sign several times to advance. You may need tweezers to pull paper thru if it doesn't advance by itself.

Switches off after 3 to 4 secs--little bright screen hor line and small retrace lines

On the my sony website, they said try unplugging the set for 3 or 6 minutes. Then plug it directly to the wall. If that don't work, and it won't; seek a service center. I have the same problem.

Next time we better buy Panasonic. Sony products fail ALOT. I had a 5 disc DVD Changer and it was defective and it was part of a class action lawsuit,

I believe this is the same sort of problem.

The sony Vaio laptop computer gets consistent poor reviews.

I brought an alarm clock and its back up battery never worked right out of the box.

I brought a cordless phone and the LCD display went blank.

I am so DONE with Sony.

Good name; Bad products.
