Question about Alps MD 5000 Thermal Printer
On the last pass (black) about half way through it makes a noise and quits. I am making transfers using dura trans. it is fine on cyan, magenta and yellow, but 4 times in a row it will only go half way through and stop. I cannot afford to continue this way. I need to make about 200 more transfers fast. I need advise.
Sounds like you have a problem with the anti-curl motor.
Assuming you are using Alps drivers, and not the Microsoft drivers that are loaded by XP, you can disable it 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.
If you are using the Microsoft driver (And it sounds like you are, as the Alps drivers have a printer monitor that will inform you of any problems that the printer encounters), you will need to download and install the Alps drivers. 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.
