Dirt and residue can deposit and build on your Aralco POS receipt printer's print-head over time especially dust and small bits of papers generated from daily paper-roll receipting and auto-cutting.
Without regular cleaning, the residue could become permanent and cause a "barrier" between the print-head and receipts causing reduced print quality.
ISOPROPYL (RUBBING) ALCOHOL
Isopropyl alcohol, available at pharmacies, can be used in either wipe or swab form to clean the surface of the print-head. Apply the solution to a lint-free cloth, just be sure to use rubbing alcohol with as high of a purity percentage as possible.
Apply a minimal amount of pressure during cleaning, enough to be effective but not enough to damage the print-head. Go over the print-head several times for a thorough cleaning. Before resuming printing, allow the print-head to dry fully.
- Do NOT use any cleaners while the printer is on.
- Get loose dust particles out of the way by lightly blowing inside the print mechanism before you begin cleaning.
- Remove any watches or jewelry that could scratch the print-head or surrounding pieces.
- Avoid touching the print-head anywhere except the edges, even the lightest touch could potentially damage the print-head glass.
