There's a small optic sensor on the right edge that detects if the printhead mechanism (lid) is locked down. If the lid doesn't fit tight, then the printer thinks the lid is still open. By pushing on the lid, you block the sensor and labels print.

I have blocked that sensor by putting a small piece of label or masking tape over the sensor to block it. Now the printer will print even if the lid is not down tight.

More of a band-aid than a permanent solution to finding out why the lid won't lock down properly but it may help.

How do I align my Citizen CLP 7202e Lable printer print head to align with the lables? Currently it starts printing low on the lable and thus the last 1-2 lines print over onto the next lable


Adjust vertical offset in printer properties. If that doesn't fix it, adjust it under "advanced". Or... you can set the offset in the printer itself. Hold down the left two buttons at the same time. Cycle through the settings until you get to vertical offset.

Dryer won't turn


Okay, approach the dryer and first unplug it from power. Now very carefully take a flat blade screw driver and push the blade into the right or left front corners of the dryer box exterior between the mani box housing and the top. Carefully pry upward trying not to scar the porcelain paint finish. You will hear apop as the lid hold down spring detaches and releases. repeat on the other side. Place a hand on each of the lid corners and lift. the top will rise a angle upwards and to the back, use something to prop up the lid. Now looking down you will see the drum and a large narrow band running around the drums circumference . This is the drum belt if it is tight with no play. It is in
a proper position if it is about 4 to 6 inches from the back of the drum.
If it is displaced or hanging off the back see if it will move back up onto the drum. If when you do this it is loose or not tensioned tightly the belt will need adjusting down near the motor. To do this you must remove the back of the dryer, please be careful not break or disconnect the wires unless you mark them with tape to show where they were attached. Now this step works for both broken and displaced ,or improperly tensioned belts. at the motor near the bottom of the dryer you will see a pulleythat the belt attaches to on the motor right above the motor pulley you will see a tensioning bar or a pulley .this tensions the belt so it will tightly grip the drum of the dryer and the motor pulley.
Loosen the bracket position the belt and then retighten making sure the belt tension is tight on the drum. Now hand rotate the drum and see if the tension of the belt turns with the motor and does not slip.
IF it slips retension and recheck. If everything turns the way it should
Put the dryer back together, but do not entirely close the lid.Plug the dryer in, Set a dryer preset such as air dry and turn it on. if the
drum turns and doesn't squeal every thing is a okay . Turn it off and close the lid. Make sure the lid holddown catches lock the lid down.
Pop in a mid size load of clothes or Towels turn the unit on. If it squels it needs re tensioning. Now worst case scenario, the belt wont tension because it is stressed, frayed or stretched, go through the replacement procedure again. Proper Tension of the belt is key to peak operation. Good Luck if you are a stickler for proper belt deflection, a
technical term used forhow tight a belt can be before a belt is too tight, go to the dryer company's website and look for drum belt deflection measurements. I always used the belt rotation slip or no slip test. Have fun !!

I can not get to the scanner glass. I don't know how to lift the second compartment to reveal the glass it only opens a little.


Make sure there is no shipping tape still holding it down. around the edges.

If you can see inside, see if there is some thing on the glass that has melted or looks like it is holding the lid down. You can take a plastic or wood piece to stick under the lid so as to not scratch the glass to see if there is some thing on the glass holding the lid down.

Usually there is no problem with the hinge of the lid unless the unit has been dropped on the floor or crushed in shipping.

Hope this helps -greatcir_0.jpg

Must certainly be frustrating.

The grinder runs intermittently. Sometimes it help to jiggle the lid and the switches on the front & side.


There is LIKELY a safety interlock switch for the lid to prevent operation if the lid is not down tight. Suspect the problem is with the switch or an latch that holds the lid.

My top drawer of my Fisher and Paykel dish washer wont close tight. It seemed to be jammed and not closing unless it was pushed closed hard and then it jumped a bit now wont close tight and has no...


Make sure the unit is level. Remove drawer. On the inside of the cabnet there are the drawer runners on iether side. Behind these there are a pair catches. If one or both of these are latched back when they shouldn't be, ie. when the drawer is open, they will obstruct the drawer from closing fully and fail to hold it closed.

Hope this helps

How do you open the dryer to fix the belt


First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.

Here's the right way to fix the problem.

Autosense Procedure, Configuration Label and Dump Mode:
Models: Orion (2442, 2443 and 2543), Transport (P-2242), Xport (P-2222), LP/TLP Strata (2684), LP/TLP-2722, 2742, 3742, LP/TLP-2824 ,LP/TLP 2844 and TLP-3842
  1. Turn off printer and have media loaded (on older Transports, with no ON/OFF switch, remove battery).
  2. Hold feed button down, and turn printer back on (on older Transports, re-insert battery) while holding down the feed button.
  3. When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
  4. Printer light will turn green and advance a few blanks.
  5. After printer stops advancing and prints the internal information, press the feed button one time.
  6. You will get another label with the "Out of Dump" message on it.
Printer is now ready for use.
