Maintaining POS Receipt Printer's Thermal Print Head

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.

 

 

 

CLEANING TIPS

 

 

  • 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.

 

 

 

LIFE SPAN OF POS RECEIPT PRINTER'S THERMAL PRINT HEAD

 

 

The life span of the print head is about 150 km of printing depending on models, therefore, parts replacement for the print head is required when it is worn out like any consumable items.

 

Please contact our support team at telephone number 62728700 for parts replacement.
