02. Head coil faulty
03. Head driver faulty
04. Head thermistor faulty
05. Head cable faulty

Please read through these instructions before trying and then follow the steps below:

1. Please power the printer "OFF".
2. Remove the printer cable from the back of the printer and remove all the paper.
3. Hold down the "LOAD/EJECT" and "TEAR OFF" buttons and turn the printer on.
4. Continue holding the "LOAD/EJECT" and "TEAR OFF" buttons down for five (5) seconds and then release both at the same time.
5. Power the printer "OFF".
6. Reconnect the printer cable.
7. Reinstall paper and ensure the thickness selector is in the correct position and that the path selector is also correct.
If the situation persists, remove the ribbon and paper and slide the print head back and forth across the width of the carriage several times. Reload the ribbon and the paper and try your test again.
