Question about Alps MD 1000 Thermal Printer
Comment by skymail, posted on Apr 28, 2008
I have tried all of what you suggest below and still receive the same results. What would this have to do with the heads? The printer has no problem printing a test sheet.
As soon as the paper loads, the file I'm trying to print disappears from the printer's documents.

The spooled files are not getting to the printer, do the following in sequence:
Start checking usb cable, test it by using a different one.
Check that no device close to usb can create an electromagnetic disturbance, a power adapter can do this.
Disconnect printer from power, Computer from power (unplug cables form power outlet) and printer from computer for 10 minutes (this will reset printer and get rid of electrostatic charges on PC usb).
Connect everything back and try.
If none of the above worked disconnect printer from usb,
remove printer from 'installed printers' in Windows (or whatever OS you are using)
Reinstall driver from printer disk (printer must remain unplugged).
Plug back printer only when required from printer software or after driver setup.
The MD-1000 is not a USB printer.
Have you downloaded the Alps drivers for the printer? The microsoft driver included in some versions of windows should NEVER be used, it's junk.
Go to http://www.groups.yahoo.com, and search for the Alps group. The drivers are in the files section.

What usualliy happens when is like this is that printer cannot understand the files because either the driver on Windows is not communicating properly with the driver or the file arrive corrupted on begin of file, then printer starts printing blank pages.
Sounds it is the driver or system. If you alredy installed driver properly it could be a Windows fault. Try installing it on a different computer , (install driver BEFORE connecting printer). IF it works, then is a problem with Windows on other computer , in this case you will need to reinstall or fix windows.
In some rare case can be defective printer usb slot. You verify all this connecting to other PC
