Remove the transfer cartridge, loosen the ribbon slightly and put it back in. This works for me!

How to clean the print head


No easy way to clean the print head. You will need to remove it from the printer to gain access to the area to clean. What does the label look like on the disc? Streaks is probably a dirty print head. If sections of the label are missing it could be the print head or heat roller. Look at the re-transfer (clear) ribbon. If the missing part of the label is left on the ribbon you have a heat roller issue.

Have an Everest III disc printer that is not printing good labels. Seems the blue prints OK but the are streaks on the disc where the red and yellow should be printing. Changing the ribbons didn't


First thing is to completely CLEAN the printer. All rollers and any point that contacts the ribbons or transfer material.

We have been getting white horizontal lines on our documents. Both print heads were recently replaced and that did not solve the problem. What part is needing replaced?


I had this same problem and none of the printer services (clean printhead, align printer, calibrate linefeed) fixed the problem. After trying every solution that I found on the internet with no success I was able to fix the problem by cleaning two critical parts of the printer.
1. Turn off the printer and open it as though you are going to change the printheads.
2. Towards the back of the printer you will see a thin clear plastic ribbon that has very small black lines on it. Very, very, very gently clean this ribbon. I used a lint free cloth and some glass cleaner. Spray the cleaner on the cloth and slide the cloth against both sides of the ribbon. Do not pull on the ribbon. This ribbon is used to tell the printhead how far it has moved from side to side.
3. Next locate the silver bar that runs across the back of the printer. This bar is used to feed the paper through the printer as it is printing a document. On the left side of the bar you will see some plastic guides that hold the bar in place. On the outside of the plastic guides you should see a clear plastic disc made of the same material as the ribbon above. This disc also has very small black lines on it. Again very, very, very gently clean this plastic disc. This disk is used to tell the printheads how far it has travelled down the page. This is the one that was causing the problem. The dust or dried ink or whatever was on the disc was causing the printer to incorrectly calibrate the linefeed and was causing the white lines to appear on my documents.
4. Use the "calibrate linefeed" function of the printer services to recalibrate the linefeed and the white lines will hopefully be gone.

Using CD Designer I try to print my disc on my Everest II printer and it appears to be printing and then the tray opens and the disc is blank - "no image printed on the disc" I do not get any...


Check the ribbons. If your CD image is still on the color ribbon your print head is probably bad. If the image is on the transfer ribbon replace the heat roller.

Press cancel for 5 seconds while power on to print config. Then check the following parameter.

Vertical fading lines


Sounds like dust on the CMY ribbon. Did you try a new color CMY ribbon?

Possibly the printer has dust floating around on the inside, but if balck prints good, that may not be.

Clear plastic ribbon came out of printer


Firstly, see if the printer still works. Print something. Then I suggest bringing it into where you purchased the printer. If a twenty month old child pulled it out I am sure it was not burried inside the printer and a Rep at the store can fix it immediately with out cost. Do not let them charge you. Just let them know that this ribbon came out and you do not know where it goes. If the printer works without it, don't worry about it, but keep the ribbon tucked away somewhere and when you go back to the store, when it is convient, have them take a look at it. Let me know how it goes.
