3.5 Media Width Adjustments
Adjustments may be needed if paper with different width is used. Print darkness is affected by the amount of pressure on the print head so it must be adjusted with the head pressure adjustment screw if necessary. The pressure on the right side of the print head, viewed from the front panel, is adjusted by turning the head pressure adjustment screw. Turning the screw clockwise decreases the pressure, and turning the screw counterclockwise increases the pressure. Normally, the pressure on the left and right sides of the print head has already been adjusted to equal loads at the factory. The check marks are located under the upper frame window. Adjustments are needed in the following cases: 1) 2) 3) When print on the left side is too light, turn the head pressure adjustment screw clockwise. When print on the right side is too light, turn the head pressure adjustment screw counterclockwise. When paper of smaller width is used: In this case, the contact between the print head and the platen becomes large, so the motor will have a heavy load and the print head may scrape the platen. To avoid this, turn the head pressure adjustment screw clockwise to decrease the pressure on the right side of the print head.

When using ribbon with a different width, adjust it according to the following procedure: a) b) c) Hold the ribbon roll with one hand so that it does not turn. Slightly push the knob toward the ribbon roll with the other hand and rotate the knob until the stopper comes to the desired position. Gradually release the knob so that the stopper fits in the groove on the knob.
Set values to each ribbon width:
Ribbon width Adjustment when ribbon slips 25.4 mm (1 in) 50.8 mm (2 in) 76.2 mm (3 in) 101.6 mm (4 in): factory setting Ribbon winding section 1 Ribbon feed section 1 Tension Mild
After printing, check for ribbon wrinkle or slippage. further according to the following procedure: (1) (2)
If it occurs, adjust it
When the ribbon wrinkles, the tension on the ribbon winding section should be increased. When the ribbon slips, the tension on the ribbon feed section should be decreased. If the problem is not resolved even when the tension on the ribbon feed section is set to 3, the tension on the ribbon winding section should be increased.
If ribbon problems are not resolved, consult our service personnel.

3.7 Ribbon Tension Adjustments (CLP 7201e, 7202e)
The CLP 7201e and 7202e feature an automatic ribbon tensioning system to keep even tension during a print run. If you receive a Ribbon Out error message during normal operation, you may need to adjust the tensioning system. With some specialist ribbons and occasionally with narrow width ribbons, the base level of the ribbon tensioning system may need to be adjusted.
Easy-to-slip ribbon and media Set the feeding section tension adjuster to the LOW position.
Especially-easy-to-slip ribbon and media Should the Ribbon Out error still occur, set the feeding section adjuster to the SUPER LOW position.
When ribbon is broken during printing The ribbon may be broken if it is narrow in width and printhead heat temperature is high. In that case, set the mark on the feeding section to SUPER LOW and set the mark on the winding section to LOW by turning the adjust-knob and adjust-screw respectively. Note: If the problem is still not resolved, please contact our service personnel.
3.8 Adjustable Media Sensor
The adjustable media sensor is standard on the CLP 6001, 6401 and 7201e models. It can be fitted as an option to all other models. If the printer has both a fixed sensor and an adjustable sensor installed, remember to select the AjSensON setting in the control panel. See section 2.5 for more details.
Guide rail upper
The location of the media sensor is shown by the yellow position mark. This can be moved from left to right using the adjustment knob. Moving the adjustment knob will cause a click for each position change. Remember to set the voltage levels for the new type of media as described elsewhere in this manual. If the printer has both a fixed sensor and an adjustable sensor installed, remember to select the AjSensON setting in the control panel. See section 2.5 for more details.
Chapter 4 Troubleshooting
4.1 Error Messages
When there is a problem with the printer, a buzzer sounds, and the error lamp on the control panel lights and an error message is displayed on the LCD screen. Some of the most common errors and corrective actions are shown below.
LCD Message Head Err Description Abnormal head resistance value Corrective actions The head has been damaged - contact Citizens service department for a replacement printhead. Perform a self-test to see where the head is damage. You can cancel this error by pressing the STOP key although printing is affected. Check the details and clear with the Stop key. You may need to change your cable or computer settings to match those of the printer. This generally requires someone with good technical knowledge of communication systems Pause key pressed or pause command received. Mechanism head open Paper out or paper end or a problem with feeding the media such as the printer cannot detect the end of the media. Press the Pause key once again to resume printing. If the Stop key is pressed, the stored printing contents will be lost and "on line" will turn on. Close the mechanism head. Install the paper or check for mis-feed. Correct the faulty setting of the paper detection (paper gap, black line, continuous paper). Correct the faulty parameter for paper (max. length, continuous paper). Some settings can be adjusted on the printer but it is more likely the changes must be made on the host computer. RibonOut Ribbon end or incorrect tension adjustments Install the ribbon and check it is winding in the correct direction. On a 7201e and 7202e, check for the correct base ribbon tension adjustment (section 3.7) In direct-thermal, ensure the ribbon is disabled. Cut Err Auto-cutter abnormality (such as poor engagement) Very carefully check and clear a jam in the autocutter option. If this can't be cleared, turn off the power and remove foreign matter from the auto-cutter. If this recurs, contact Citizen service persons.
