More About POS Receipt Printers
Printed receipts are a pretty essential component for retail businesses, as well as for other businesses and organizations with POS and customer-facing needs. There are fixed receipt printers which are installed along with sales registers, and many businesses also now choose to take advantage of mobile receipt printing devices, as well.
There are many different types of commercial receipt printing devices, but the most common technology is a thermal receipt printer. Thermal printers may cost a little more upfront, but they’re also much more efficient in the long run. They’re fast, quiet, and are designed to produce high-quality receipts without any need for replaceable ink cartridges or ribbons. Instead, they use heat to activate their imprinting upon thermal paper.
Common Problems & Issues with Receipt Printers
Most commercial receipt printers in use today are actually thermal printers, meaning they use heat to effectively melt an imprint of ink onto the thermal-based stock. But even these specially-designed devices can eventually show signs of issues which need addressing. Here are some of the issues we commonly see at AES:
Thermal printers can generate some dust on their own, and they also tend to attract dirt and other contaminants over time. Without regular maintenance and cleaning, these contaminants can clog a receipt printer or its print head, leading to premature wear and failure.
Even though these receipt printers are designed to crank out copy at a commercial level, their print heads still don’t last forever. If your receipt printing jobs are starting to look rougher, including the presence of some thin burn lines, then your print head could be the culprit. Sometimes your print head may just need a good cleaning; in other cases, the print head may have become worn to the point that it requires refurbishing or replacing. AES can provide the best solution in either case!
Improper Heat Settings
If the heat settings on your receipt printer are too high, that causes images to smudge and make your prints appear blurred. On the other hand, if the heat settings aren’t high enough, your printed copy and images will actually appear weak and faded. In this circumstance, your barcode scanners will have trouble reading the printed receipts, as well.
Printer Jams or Clogs
If your thermal paper is becoming stuck on a regular basis, the issue with your receipt printer could lie with the rollers, belts, and/or gears which move the hard copy through the system. These are moving parts which will require an appropriate amount of service and maintenance in order to continue functioning properly.
Don’t Have the Needed Parts or Tools
You may have a good idea of what the issue is with your receipt printer, but the problem is that you don’t have the needed parts, tools, or expertise to be able to correct it. In situations like this, it’s best to partner with an imaging repair professional who really knows how to work on this type of equipment. AES has extensive experience in this type of work, and we also maintain ready stock of needed parts for these types of repairs.
