Hi All,
Can anyone help please?
I have the DS40 and for the first time since having this I am getting lines coming straight down the prints - I have tried new media and it makes no difference.
I am assuming the thermal head needs replacing but could anyone confim if this is the sort of symptons that this would display before I part with 300!!
Thanks in advance,.
Regards
Mark

Mark,

It's probably a bit of laminate cooked on to the head.

using a lint free cloth clean the head, dont be afraid to give it some elbow grease, the heads are very tough.

If you can feel it on the head, like a pimple, and it wont come off first try a bit of lens cleaner, if that wont move it use a dab of Iso electrical cleaner from Maplins.

Mark try this,as Ian said a bit of cooked film
create a white image,then run say 5 of the printer,then try an full image,to see if the line has cleared or got fainter,then repeat until it clears completely,I used 6x4 media for this,keeps costs down

The problem was a combination of DNP printers, Mac and Picasa, they don't work together, I just spoke to Mark but he had already sorted it...(well, his wife had)..sorry Mark!!
Just thought I would put it on here in case anyone else has the same problem.
