Question about Panasonic KX-P2023 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Panasonic KX-P2023 Matrix

When I turn on the printer and instruct it to print, the print unit with a new cartridge is stuck in the far left position, and the lights on both sides of the Font blink rapidly, five lights.

It was working fine until this suddenly happened. Now it refuses to print.

Carrige goes to extreme right and chatters. this occured just after cleaning, had worked fine before the cleaning

Alignment is off on the slider track that the carriage moves left/right on. Power down, move the carriage to the far left. power back on and let the system calibrate. There should be a reset sequence where you hold down the menu or online button and keep it down while you turn the unit on. That will put it in a self test mode that you can cancel by powering off then back on.

You have to go into your printer settings and change the size of the "paper" you are printing to so that it matches the size of the labels you are printing to.

You probably have a power supply problem and searching for the failed part requires some knowledge and a couple pieces of test equipment.
The vibration is liekly caused because a DC voltage produced inside has AC ripple on it because of a failed part, probably a bad capacitor.

Won't Print At All

First check that the head gap is set to forward position. Usually lever on side of printer. Do a test print by holding in the Linefeed button while switching on. If still no print, loosen the printhead and check for opstruction or loose cable.
