    If you buy a printer MD 5500 for Frank and this develops lines across the print then you are on your own. Frank won't give a damn. Once he's sold you the printer you are on your own.

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

My problem is in my Alps MD 1300. Two layers of white print without problems, but when I print CMYK over white horizontal lines appear about ruining my work. I use "white Based (MDC-OPWH)"...


The MDC-OPWH is Opaque White. It's meant to be used as an overcoat when making things like Iron-On transfers when they are applied on dark backgrounds. Regular white is used for undercoating for things like waterslide decals.

Alps 1300 printer drivers for win 7


There are no Windows 7 drivers for the ALPS printers. Since you are running W7 Pro, using the virtual XP mode will work. To get full functionality of the drivers, you need to have a motherboard with a built-in parallel port.

No not for the average consumer/hobbyist for printing white and metallics with an overlay options. There are a lot of options if you are looking for photo quality printers.

I'm looking for the manual for the Alps MD-1300 printer, I need to know how to print spot colors


The 1300 prints spot colors the same way as the other ALPS printers. To print spot colors, create a mask or layer using only black with your artwork. Select the spot color you want and the black areas on the mask will be printed in the spot color. Make sure that you check the overlay box so the printer retains the printer. You also need to make sure you are using the ALPS printer driver supplied with the printer and NOT the default Windows plug and play driver.

Horizontal lines in print


Horizontal lines are not good. First try cleaning the printhead with a cotton swab and alcohol. Then run the embedded self print test. There should be a solid black bar at the bottom if the page. If there are lines in the black bar, then most likely your printhead is damaged.

Alps md 1300 only prints in black


First of all, Alps MD inks do not "Dry up". They are dry to start with!

It sounds like you may be running XP, with the Microsoft driver for this printer installed. You need to load the Alps driver, which you can get by joining the alps or alpsdecal group at http://groups.yahoo.com. You can find the driver in the files section of one of the groups.
