Question about Printronix Line Matrix P5010 Printer
Our printer is saying to "close platen" even though it already is. We tried turning it on and off and even blowing out the inside to get rid of any debris. It is still giving us the "close platen" signal though. Any suggestions?
When you open and close the platen lever you will notice micro switch that should be engaged... When the lever is down to A - C. looks like this... only 2 other things it could be besides the switch...
P5000 Platen Interlock Switch
If anybody has been in the printer where PCBA's are, check the two cable connectors holders... seated good... worst case,it would be very rare if its CMX Board(main logic)...
