Cleaning the printhead on a Magicard printer

Posted on December 10, 2008

This guide is for cleaning the printhead on the Magicard Alto, Tempo, Opera, Avalon, Avalon Duo, Enduro, Rio 2e, Tango 2e, and Tango +L card printers.

The thermal printhead on most Magicard printers needs to be cleaned when traces of ribbon or lines are seen on your printed cards. This problem occurs on occasion and a quick clean often fixes the problem.

  • Take the cleaning pen, and remove the cap
  • Open the printer
  • Pass the cleaning pen across the length of the printhead.

This short routine will clean the printhead and generally fix the lines appearing on your cards.
