  • Open the door on the right side of the printer.
  • Push "up" on the green lever above the ribbon cartridge. The ribbon should pop out slightly.
  • If it does not pop out, then try prying out the cartridge while pushing up on the grean lever.
  • Pull out the ribbon cartridge.

On/Off switch is broken. Actually, it's just the button. It is hinged by two tiny plastic arms which have broken. Looks like a weak spot. Anybody else had this problem? Are parts available for this...

After a lot of Goolging I found a service manual for the printer online:

From it I got the part number for the broken part: JB64 00094A.

A little more work with Google and I found an 800 number for Samsung customer suport:800-726-7864

They gave me the Web address of the Samsung parts supplier:

The price of the part was $1.85, but after shipping and handling it came out as about $11. When I placed the order I got a message " This part may not ship immediately." Don't know how long it will take, but I assume it will eventually arrive. Meanwhile, I have removed the button and can reach in through the hole and press the microswitch on the circuit board with the eraser end of a pencil.

If this is actually a printer issue I suspect it's a memory problem. There should be a setting to print data "raw" without caching, or "as you go"...I can't remember the exact wording. Either way, if your not buffering the jobs and the problem is memory, that should slow it down but will fix it. If it doesn't, I would suggest you look at what your trying to print, because it is most likely related to what your printing and not how. Like the previous job not sending a carriage return, indicating a form feed, or some other oddity.

Print problem spp-2040

This may be caused by a broken plastic lever for the thermal head inside the printer. This is not particularly difficult to fix, but it not be attempted if you have more than two thumbs.
  • The case is not difficult to open, nor is removing the pc board in the printer, but I suggest getting a service manual on the web for disassembly instructions. Reconnecting the LCD cable is painful. Search for "SPP-2040 service manual."
  • Remove the printer assembly from the case.
  • Remove the PC card from the printer assembly being very careful of the cables.
  • From the top, look at the shaft that controls the up/down motion of the thermal head. At the end opposite the motor, inspect the white plastic lever. There should be no cracks evident, nor should the lever be "loose" with respect to the shaft. If this is not the case, this is not your problem. There is a "flat" on the shaft that should keep the lever from rotating.
  • Remove the "upper plate." Two small screws and a spring at the opposite end.
  • Rotate the lever so that it aligns with the "flat."
  • Using small buss wire (or a paper clip), wrap the wire around the round part of the lever.
  • Twist the ends of the wire tightly and as close to the lever as possible. There is not a lot of space here. Trim off the excess wire and position the wire as shown.
  • Reassemble the top plate & spring.
  • Reassemble the printer & test.
Hope that this has helped. al
