    hold the 2 buttons on the far right at the same time, this will unlock the enter key, then you can scroll into calibration menu and then calibrate, job done!

My label printer quit printing the barcodes on the labels.

I am just getting a series of lines.

I have tried unplugging the machine and still have the same result.

I have tried to calibrate but that is not working either.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Error msg says "COLD PRINT HEAD"


1. The Printhead/Controller
cable assembly is
2. The environment is too cold
for the printhead to sustain
operating temperature.
1. Make sure the printhead/
controller cable assembly is
connected to J401 at the
printhead and J6 on the
controller PCBA.
2. Move the printer to a
warmer location.

If none of this works you might have a bad printhead. The thermistor on the printhead has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Please contact me if a printhead is needed or if you have any other questions. I am also an ASR for Printronix meaning I can supply you with new and used parts and printers.

There are two guides on that machine.

One guide will make sure that the media is locked down and secured. if it isn't it will cause drifting.

There is also another guide around the thermal head before printing that guides the labels before it prints. It either white or or it could be a green color.

are you using the takeup roller on the printer to hold the wax paper? If you are is it straight on the take up roller?

I don't see that it is possible. The SMT tools themselves won't let in an import. The programing or tagging would have to be done by you.
