Cleaning the printhead after each roll of labels will help to extend the life of the printhead. A clean printhead will also provide optimal print quality. 

Procedure:

After allowing the print head to cool for approximately one minute, use 99.7% Isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab to clean the print elements from end to end (the print elements are located in the dark line on the print head).

NOTE: You do not have to turn off the printer to do this.



If print quality has not improved after performing this procedure, try cleaning the print head with Save-a-Print head cleaning film Zebra P/N 46902. This specially coated material removes contamination buildup without damaging the print head. Read More>>
