Cleaning Your Thermal Printer
Before you can clean your printer, you will first need to remove the ribbon and plate media.
Start by opening up your printer and lifting up its print unit. Now lift your ribbon off the print unit and put it aside. Next lift up the sensor arm and take your plate media out of the printer. Now that is done, you are ready to start cleaning.
Start with the printhead first, use a cleaning pen or wipe all over its surfaces. But don’t forget to wipe your ribbon rollers. Simply use your fingers to rotate it and wipe each bit until it’s clean. After the printhead, move on to the platen and the media guides next.
Finish off by cleaning the sensor and any surfaces that come into contact with your plate media. Once you are finished, replace your printer ribbon, sensor arm and plate media.
