Ready and Media Lamps Blink Simultaneously

Ready and Media Lamps Blink Simultaneously

The Ready and Media lamps blink simultaneously when an error occurs due to misuse of media (labels).  The table below reviews possible causes and recommended solutions.

 

Possible Cause

Recommended Solution

No media is loaded, or media has run out.

 

Load a new roll of media. Please reference Loading Media in the User’s Manual. 

The media is not loaded correctly.

Reload media correctly. Check the position of the media guide and media roll guides.  Please reference to the User’s Manual.

 

Media has not been calibrated.

 

Note: Always perform media calibration after loading a new roll of media.

 

Complete the media calibration process, as follow:

1.     Press and hold the “Cancel” button until three lamps of the printer start to blink. This process takes about 4 seconds.

2.     While the lamps blink, release the “Cancel” button and press the “Feed” button immediately.

3.     The printer will feed approximately 200mm of media, and the lamps will stop blinking.

4.     Press the Feed button 5-10 times to verify the printer is feeding one label at a time.

 

The media sensor is not adjusted to the middle of a label.  This indicates the media sensor cannot detect the media.

Manually adjust the position of the media sensor to the middle of a label (not between columns), and perform the Media Calibration.

 

 

The media sensor has accumulated dirt or paper scraps.

Clean the media sensor surface with isopropyl alcohol using a clean cotton swab or non-abrasive cloth.

 

All the above did not correct the situation.  This indicates the media sensor may be broken.

Contact an authorized Postek service provider for diagnosis and service.
