Removing the printhead

Removing the Printhead

Removingthe Printhead

  • Turn the power switch off.

  • Disconnect the power cord.

  • Disconnect the printer communications cable.

  • Carefully open the right side cover first and then open the front cover.

  • Make sure you are appropriately grounded using proper anti-static procedures.

Installing the printhead

Installing the Printhead

  • Turn the power switch off and make sure both the power cord and the printer communications cable are disconnected.

  • Open the side cover first, then the front cover.

  • Open the Printhead lever.

  • Make sure to note the new Printhead resistance before installing. See calibration instructions.

After confirming the Printhead Cable Assembly is properly positioned into the Printhead connector, attach the two 7/32 hex nuts onto the Printhead bracket guide pins.

  • Attach the strip plate to the front of the Printhead Assembly by tightening the two Phillips head screws.

  • Install media and ribbon (if applicable).


Stripe 400

  • Clean the Printhead’s print-line using an alcohol swab, removing oil or dirt that may have been deposited during installation.

  • Lower the Printhead Assembly and close Printhead lever, checking the media and ribbon for proper alignment.

  • Carefully close front cover first, then the side cover.


Printhead resistance calibration

Printhead Resistance Calibration

Printhead voltage should never be adjusted to affect print darkness. Changing Printhead voltage in this way will drastically reduce the life of the Printhead.

  • Plug in power cord and printer communications cable.

  • With the printer turned off, attach the black probe of the voltmeter to Ground (GND) on the logic board, and the red probe to the top of point F2 (the bottom-left fuse).

  • Turn the voltmeter/multimeter switch to VDC 200.

  • Without removing the probes, turn the power on and wait for the Power On Self-Test to be completed (usually takes between 10-15 seconds).

  • Find RV2 at the very bottom of the Main Logic Board and adjust with a small Phillips-head screwdriver until the voltmeter displays the correct value from Table 1 (as defined by the resistance value for this particular Printhead).

Toggle position adjustment

Toggle Position Adjustment

  • Before adjusting toggle pressure, perform a Pause Self-Test by holding the pause key while turning on power. If the print is not consistent across the width of the label, proceed to make toggle adjustments.

  • Turn the toggle adjusting nuts until appropriate pressure is achieved.

    • Tighten (clockwise) to increase pressure.

    • Loosen (counter-clockwise) to decrease pressure.

Note that too much pressure applied to the toggles will shorten the life of the Printhead. Choose the lowest even pressure that produces the desired print quality in order to maximize Printhead life.

Platen Roller Installation

  • Slide the platen bearing off the pulley side of the platen roller.

  • Insert the right side of the platen roller into the bearing opening.


Stripe 400

*Make sure that the bearings are rotated correctly for either the S400 or the S600. For the S400, the bearing hole should be on top. The S600 rotates the bearings 180 degrees (the bearing hole is toward the bottom).
