This is causes by:
- Temperature thermistor on the top label sensor.
May be caused by either the component is bad or you have the cable cut.
Either you change the connection cables or you change the whole block with the sensors. (spare part)

Does anyone know how to rectify the TEC B-SX4 head temperature error? it's the correct version printhead for the model of MLB and the correct firmware, but problem still exists.

This excess temperature may be caused by a temperture detector.
Ther are two detectors on a Toshiba Tec Printer.
- On the print head.
- In the top part of the label sensor mecanism.
You cna check if they are working when going in the adjust set parameter setting.
You can read Head temp and air temp
If one of them is not working you will not be able to adjust the temperature. Worst you'll have the message Head excess temperature message.

The printer is printing very light. Already

Hi Gerry..I was looking for a solution to another problem and saw yours... Maybe you can increase the temperature of the sensor. To do this, go to the menu <3>ADJUST SET, look for "TONE ADJ<T>" if you are using "Thermal Transfer" or "TONE ADJ<D>" whether you're using "Direct transfer" and increase one of this values: +5 should be good... I hope this can help you.. Regards..

Black 852 print cartridge inserted now is not intended for use in

Definitely take the printer, cartridge and all to the store and show them what is going on. They must make this right for you since they told you it would work. Be firm. Go prepared with paper and pen to write down the name of the person helping you. If you do not get satisfaction, ask to speak to the supervisor.
