Most printers have a release that allows the printhead to open. Once the head is open, the easiest way to clean it is with a recommended printhead wipe, just wipe the printhead clean. It is also wise to wipe the platen roller also. Reload all the label material and ribbon and away you go.
- Take great care not to scratch the surface and to get the entire residue off with alcohol wipes
- Wipe down the platen roller
- Keep print head cleaner kits on hand to perform regular printhead maintenance and ensure optimum printer performance.
- Use a sharp instrument to scrape either the head or the platen roller that the head rests on. It can destroy the roller or print head surface requiring it to be replaced.
