    My PF-2 prints just fine- one disc at a time. When it comes time to drop a blank disc- the drop mechanism goes "thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk" likes it's trying hard to allow a disc to drop but without success. I'm using the same media as always. The printer was working fine one day, next day not.

I had the same problem. Had to call microboards, (952) 556-1639, and order a chip for $20.00. Put it in myself and now it work fine.

The loader on the pf-2 is controlled by the large chip below the loader, the current version is "V2" also there is a small micro switch on the bar that the print head slides along, check this isnt stuck

Double printing on page


This is caused either by the fuser or the tonercartridge.

The most common cause is the tonercartridge.
You can test this by forcing a paperjam to stop the paper just after the toner but before the fuser.

To force a paper jam print you can print a page from the manual feed tray and as the last third of the page enters the printer opening the door causes it to halt.

If the double printing occurs before the toner is bonded to the paper by the fuser you should replace the tonercartridge..

I cannot get the paper to load into the printer


I had an issue with the cassette tray paper feed. I loaded paper in the rear tray, manually used the printer properties button to make it print from the rear tray and printed from there. The next day I manually did the same thing but forced it to print from the cassette (bottom) tray. It worked fine today. It no longer thinks that there is no paper and the rollers are picking up the paper edge for proper feeding of the paper. I did not go through the roller cleaning procedure but I would do that if switching back and forth manually between trays doesn't work.

Paper feed problem


With that many labels I would replace the paper feed roller, RL1-0266-000, about $8.00
it will save you lots of headaches and a spare will fix it next time it happens.

Single blank disk inserting wont work (Mircoboards PF2)


You may have a disc loading error. To correct this follow these instructions:
Disk Loading error:
If a disc is not loaded correctly, it could cause the out of paper indicator to come on. Press the out of paper button on the interface. The printer will attempt to load another disc. If this does not clear the error, remove the discs from the input bin. Check to see if there are any discs on the belt. Remove any discs that are left on the belt.
Lift the cover and check for any discs on the front part of the printer. Remove any discs found on the belts. Close the cover.
Next, reload the input bin and press the out of paper button. The system will load the next disc and continue printing the remaining discs for that job.

If that doesn't work, and there are no obvious jams in the transport system, I'd call support and see if they can walk you through a fix. They can be reached at:

Zebra 105SE label material will not retract in prep for next Lab


The platen is the driving force for the label. the main drive belt runs all functions in the printer.
Is the back feed turn on in the printer? Check the setup.

Also if the print driver is set(doc/properties settings on print depending on software) to use pirnter settings, and the back feed is turned off in the printer, it will not backfeed.

Set up


May be your problems can be solved doing a calibration. To do this, turn off the printer, press the feed key and turn on the printer. When the led flashes in red quickly release the feed key, the printer will start to calibrate and after the calibration will feed one label.

It is explained in the user manual.

All document printers with disc printing capabilities suffer from disc feed problems. It is an inherent design flaw that results from the machines original design to print documents. Loading discs to be printed must first "go around" the printer's paper feeding mechanism to accept discs. I got tired of using document printers to print labels on discs. I switched to a DiscPainter made by Dymo. It is a dedicated disc printer that was designed as such from the outset and not as an afterthought. It prints every bit as well as any document/disc printer but without the frustrating mis feeds. Although the Canon printer is great for documents its design limitations for disc printing are not easily overcome.

Disc Feeding Problem


I am assuming you are using a PF-2 printer. If you are using a standard HP78 ink cartridge instead of the Microboards cartridge, the unit will only print approx 5 discs before it stops. The microboards cartridges have a security tag under the barcode label that is scanned by a magnetic reader on the left hand part of the unit. If you are careful, you can use a razor blade and remove the label from a microboards cartridge and tape it on the front of a HP ink and save yourself about $25 an ink cartridge...
