It is primarily intended for authorized service technicians. To order printed ver- sions of the Intermec manuals, contact your local Intermec representative or distributor. Thus, all information on the Intermec Fingerprint FP rmware is based on version 8. The on-going product improvement can be followed in the Printer Technical Bulletins from Intermec. Note that even if the printers are technical identical with the exception of the keyboard overlay , Fingerprint and IPL make the printer work quite differently and certain devices and options are not supported by IPL.

Generally, illustrations in this manual show printers with a Fingerprint- compatible keyboard. Please note that the operations described in this manual only should be car- ried out by skilled and authorized personnel with proper training and full understanding of written English. The printers contain wires and circuits with up to V, which implies the risk of electrical shock.

Moving parts may also cause harm, if incorrectly manipulated. It is assumed that the reader possesses reasonable skills in mechanics and electronics and is familiar with the Intermec programming languages Fingerprint or IPL and their related standard application programs. It is also assumed that the reader has access to the standard tools of an electronics workshop.

Intermec Pm4I Paper Type

The bottom plate is fitted with four easily replaceable rubber feet. These feet could be removed and the holes be used to bolt the printer to a frame, table or similar. The holes have a diameter of 7. To reduce noise, fit rubber dampeners between the table and the printer if you bolt it in place.

When fitting a replacement foot, insert it through the bottom plate and firmly press the pin so the rivet expands on the upper side of the plate.

The bottom plate is provided with two pairs of hinges for the front door or cutter and for the right-hand door. The two keyholes must not be used to bolt the printer to a frame, or the bottom plate may be bent. These holes are intended for fixtures during manufacturing. Rear Plate The rear plate is attached to the bottom plate using three T0 Torx screws and to the center section by two T0 Torx screws.

There is also a bracket between the rear plate and the center section. The rear plate has a number of slots for connectors, switches etc. Finally, it describes how an external media supply can be used in an EasyCoder PXi and PX6i printer fitted with a fan-fold guide.

Internal Supply Description The internal media supply consists of a shaft with four or five modular hubs. The shaft is screwed into a flange fitted to an almost circular plate using two T0 Torx screws. The plate is fitted to the center section using four T0 Torx screws.

The hub modules are spring-loaded in order to fit media roll cores with an inner diameter between 8 and 0 mm.

A large crescent-shaped guide plate keeps the media roll aligned with the print mechanism. Inside the guide plate and protruding through a slot in the circular plate, the paper sensor is fitted to the center section.

Maximum diameter of an internal media roll is mm 8. Maximum width is 0 mm. Inside the outermost hub module, there is a spring that presses the hub package towards a felt pad in order to break the rotation. Else, the momentum of a large and heavy media roll might cause excessive media to be unwound when the printing is stopped.

The rotation of the code disc fitted at the innermost part of the hub package is detected by the paper sensor. Be careful to fit the studs of the innermost hub module into the holes in the code disc when the package is assembled. Paper Sensor Description Adjustment Replacement The paper sensor allows the firmware to detect when the diameter of the remaining media becomes less than a value set in the Setup Mode. Thus, a Fingerprint program can be created, that reads SYSVAR 6 and uses it to issue for example audible alarms or error messages to notify the operator of a pending out-of-media condition.

A trap is also sent that can be detected when the printer is connected to a network via an EasyLAN interface. The sensor detects the saw-tooth shape of the code disc at the inner end of the media supply hub.

By comparing the rotation speed of the hub and the print speed, the firmware can calculate the diameter of media roll.

The paper sensor assy is fitted to the center section using a 0 Torx screw and is connected to J7 on the CPU board see Chapter. Switch off the power, disconnect the power cord, and remove the lefthand cover.

Disconnect the cable from J7 on the CPU board. Remove the crescent-shaped guide plate, which is held by three T0 Torx screws. Remove the entire media supply unit which is held by four T0 Torx screws. Remove the single T0 Torx screw that holds the sensor to the center section. Carefully pull out the sensor and its cable through the hole in the center section. Install a new sensor assembly in reverse order.

Three-inch Adapters One or two adapters standard accessories can be fitted onto the media supply hub in order to accept media rolls with 76 mm inches cores. Each adapter is locked using a T0 Torx screw. Be careful not to let the screw hit the leaf springs or the cams of the hub modules. Media Roll Retainer An optional media roll retainer can be pressed on the hub package but not on the adapter of an EasyCoder PXi in order to hold large media rolls and to prevent the media from getting misaligned on the roll.

Fan-Fold Guides Description Instead of an internal media roll, the EasyCoder PXi and PX6i printers can also use media from an external supply, for example an external roll or a stack of fan-folded tickets. The media is inserted into the printer through either the upper or lower slot in rear plate.

It is important that the media path is properly aligned in parallel with the printer s center section. Therefore, Intermec offers an optional Fan Fold Kit consisting of a bracket with two guides that can be fitted in either the upper or lower slot in the rear plate. The outer guide is adjustable for different media widths. Insert the complete unit through the slot from the outside and attach it to the rear plate using two T0 Torx screws.

In case of the upper position, use the screws included in the kit, and in case of the lower position, use the two existing screws that hold the rear plate to the bottom plate. Adjustment Adjust the position of the outer guide to fit the width of the media. The external supply should be protected from dust, sand, grit and other particles that may damage the printhead or impair the printout quality.

Note: If the printer is to be permanently used with an external media supply only, the entire internal media supply unit could easily be removed see Chapter. Description The label slack absorber compensates for sudden jerks at the media, for example when high speed printing is started and stopped.

As soon the heavy media roll starts to rotate, the tension decreases. The spring-loaded absorber can then return towards its original position. During the printing, the absorber will flutter back and forth, compensating for the variations in tension. To facilitate media load, the label slack absorber can be rotated 80 clockwise. It can be locked in open position using a snap-lock.

Remember to unlock the slack absorber before starting to print. An adjustable edge guide is fitted on the label slack absorber to prevent media misalignment.

The guide is fitted as standard, but can be removed to facilitate media load when there are other means of guiding the media, for example a media roll retainer or fan-fold guides see Chapter. Dismantling The label slack absorber unit is fitted to the center section using two T0 Torx screws inserted through the center section from the electronics compartment.

The shaft should be screwed into the flange with a tightening torque of Nm.

The mechanism consists of three main parts: Ribbon supply unit see Chapter 7. Ribbon rewind unit see Chapter 7. Ribbon sensor see Chapter 7. Adjustment of the ribbon assist roller to remedy wrinkling of the ribbon is described in Chapter 8. It is used to accommodate the fresh supply of thermal transfer ribbon. For optimum printout quality and trouble-free operation, only original transfer ribbon from Intermec should be used.

The unit is designed to keep the ribbon tight all the time in order to avoid wrinkling, which would ruin the printout. It consists of a shaft on which a hub is fitted. It is most important for avoiding ribbon wrinkling that the pivoting point of the hub is centered in relation to the ribbon width. Therefore, the shaft is provided with six grooves which correspond to the standard widths of Intermec transfer ribbons see table below.

By compressing the hub, its snap-lock will disengage from the presently engaged groove and the hub can be moved sideways to another position. Make sure that the snap-lock has engaged a groove by trying to move the hub without compressing it. Ribbons with a width less than mm. Ribbon Width Position groove Note mm.

Initially, the spring expands towards the inner wall of the sleeve, thereby breaking the rotation of the shaft. When the bobbin is forced to rotate that is, when the ribbon is unwound , the breaking spring is compressed. After approximately half a turn, the diameter of the spring has been compressed enough to allow the sleeve to slip. The sleeve is filled with ball bearing grease. If the brake torque deviates from the recommended value, replace the grease. We recommend Castrol Sinplex.

The expected interval between replacing the grease is 8 to 0 million print cycles. When the rotating force ceases, the spring tends to pull back the ribbon, keeping it tight. It pulls the transfer ribbon around the printhead and winds it up on a cardboard core. The unit is driven via a belt by the same stepper motor that drives the platen roller. The rewind unit is provided with a friction brake in order to keep the ribbon tight. Adjustment There is no manual adjustment of the ribbon rewind unit other than the tension of the belt to the stepper motor see Chapter 8.

The torque spring allows the stepper motor to drive the rewind hub rotate counter-clockwise only.

Supported printers

When the media is fed back, the ribbon will not move. The torque spring arrangement automatically compensates for the gradually increasing diameter of the used ribbon on the rewind hub, so the ribbon will always be fed at the same speed as the media. One of the screws runs in a crescent-shaped slot to allow adjustment or removal of the belt.

Remove the left-hand cover as described in Chapter.. Remove the two T0 Torx screws and the single washer that hold the ribbon rewind unit. Free the belt from the pulley of the rewind unit.

Pull out the unit into the media compartment. Do not dismantle the ribbon rewind unit. Fit the new ribbon rewind unit in reverse order, making sure that the belt is properly attached to the pulley, but do not tighten the screws.

Adjust the tension of the belt as described in Chapter Tighten the screws. Ribbon Sensor Description The ribbon sensor is fitted to the center section from the media compartment side and is partly enclosed by the ribbon supply unit see Chapter 7. The sensor consists of a plastic housing with a LED and a photoelectric sensor plus a cable.

The light from the LED is intermittently blocked by the saw-toothed edge of the rotating code disc. The signals from the sensor allow the firmware to detect the speed with which the bobbin rotates and compare it with the speed of the media feed.

Thus, both out of ribbon and ribbon low conditions can be detected. If no bobbin rotation is detected during media feed, the Fingerprint firmware assumes an error condition error 07 Out of transfer ribbon provided the printer is set for thermal transfer printing. In IPL, the error message Ribbon out is displayed. Ribbon sensor T0 Torx screw Ribbon supply unit Replacement Remove the cover over the electronics compartment as described in Chapter.

Remove any transfer ribbon from the ribbon supply unit. Remove the ribbon supply unit as described in Chapter Disconnect the sensor s cable from J6 on the CPU board. Remove the T0 Torx screw that holds the sensor to the center section.

Install a replacement sensor unit in reverse order. By default, this parameter is set to 0, which disables the function. To enable it, enter the desired value. Note that a full forward rotation of the supply bobbin must have been completed. If not, 0 will be returned. The printer will feed out a few labels and feed the ribbon accordingly.

While the ribbon mechanism is operating, the ribbon sensor is autoadjusted and the resulting adjustment value is shown in the lower line of the menu read-only. In the Setup Mode see Appendix A , it is possible to specify the value in millimeters of the ribbon supply roll for the ribbon sensor.

When the diameter of remaining ribbon supply roll reaches the set value, an SNMP trap is sent to the printer s home page, provided the printer has an optional EasyLAN connection. Range: with preset values at an interval of.

A value larger than 80 sets the ribbon sensor to 0. The stepper motor drives the platen roller via one belt and the ribbon assist roller and the ribbon rewind unit via another.

The tear bar makes it easier to tear off continuous and pre-perforated media stock. It is also used for peel-off self-strip operation. The label stop sensor LSS controls the media feed and checks for outof-paper conditions. The printhead produces the heat that melts the ink on the transfer ribbon or blackens the direct thermal paper in patterns that make up the text, graphics, or bar codes.


The headlift mechanism presses the printhead against the media or transfer ribbon, or raises the printhead to allow media and ribbon load. The print unit is a self-contained module and attached to the printer's center section by means of four T0 Torx screws.

There are also a number of cables running from the print mechanism to the driver and CPU boards see Chapters. The ribbon rewind unit is driven by a belt from the motor of the print unit via an idle pulley attached to the inside of the center section.

These belts have to be removed before the print unit can be pulled out. Cables are excluded. The idle pulley fitted to the center section and the ribbon rewind unit are not included. Note that many of the parts illustrated here are not available as separate spare parts, but must be bought as ready-assembled units. Platen Roller Description Replacement The platen roller is coated with silicon rubber. It is imperative that the roller is kept clean and is free from uneven wear or dents.

The platen roller is identical to the liner drive roller, so these rollers could be switched.

The same applies to the pulleys and belts. It is normal that the platen roller needs to be replaced after a period of time depending on print volume and other circumstances.

If the platen roller is manually rotated, while the power is switched on, the stepper motor may work as a generator and damage the stepper motor driver on the driver board see Chapter. A typical example is when the operator tears out media that has stuck on the platen roller without switching off the power first.

This description also applies to the liner drive roller. Switch off the power to the printer and disconnect the power cord. Open the front and right hand doors.

Remove the cover over the electronics compartment, which is held by eight T0 Torx screws, see Chapter.. Remove the tension of the belt to the ribbon rewind unit by loosening the two T0 screws that holds the ribbon rewind unit. Dismantle the stepper motor from the bracket by removing the two T0 Torx screws. Free the belt from the pulley of the ribbon rewind unit and manipulate the stepper motor so it comes free from both belts. Remove the stepper motor.

Remove the belt from the pulley of the platen roller. Insert a mm hexagon key through the semicircular slot in the front plate and loosen the grub screw that holds the pulley on the shaft of the platen roller. Using a T0 screwdriver, remove the bracket that holds the outer end of the platen roller and pull out the entire package.

Reassemble in reverse order using a fresh set of roller and bearings. When fitting back the pulley on the platen roller shaft, check that the distance between the pulley and the inner gable of the print unit becomes mm 0. When putting back the stepper motor, fit the short belt first, while letting the long belt hang loosely on the idler in a loop, through which you can insert the pulley of the stepper motor. Do not put the long belt around the pulley of the ribbon rewind unit until you have fitted the stepper motor to the bracket and checked that both belts are engaged by the stepper motor s pulleys.

Adjust the tension of the belts as described in Chapter 8. Stepper Motor Description Replacement The stepper motor drives the platen roller via a short belt and the ribbon assist roller and the ribbon rewind unit via another, longer belt.

A freely rotating pulley attached to the printer s center section makes the outside of the longer belt drive the ribbon assist roller. The stepper motor is driven in microsteps 8 microsteps per full step at all speeds. The stepper motor is fitted by two T0 Torx screws to a bracket, which in its turn is attached to the print unit gable by three T0 Torx screws.

The pulleys of the stepper motor are permanently glued to the motor s shaft.

Replace the stepper motor as follows: Switch off the power and disconnect the power cord. Disconnect the cable to the stepper motor from the driver board. Remove the tension of the belt to the ribbon rewind unit by loosening the two T0 screws that hold the unit, see Chapter Do not put the long belt around the pulley of the ribbon rewind unit until you have fitted the stepper motor to the bracket and checked that both belts are engaged by the pulleys.

Connect the cable of the stepper motor to upper connector along the inner edge of the driver board P0. Refer to illustration on the next page! Note: The bracket does not need to be removed from the inner print unit gable when the stepper motor is replaced.

T0 Torx screws Stepper motor Ribbon rewind unit and ribbon assist roller belt Idle roller with shaft fitted to center section Bracket do not remove! Belts Description Replacement The print unit has at least two timing belts, one that drives the platen roller and another that drives the ribbon assist roller and the ribbon rewind unit. The belts are subject to wear and may need periodical replacement.

Properly adjusted tension and alignment of the pulleys will increase time between replacements. Switch off the power and disconnect the power cord. Replace the defective belt or belts.

Smart features

Adjust the tension of the belts as described later in this chapter and put back the cover. Check that the platen roller can be rotated freely by the belt, which should flex just a little when you press it with your finger. Before adjusting this belt, check the tension of the platen roller belt as described on the previous page. Slightly loosen the two T0 Torx screws that hold the flange of the ribbon rewind unit.

Turn the ribbon rewind unit so the belt becomes tight, yet will flex slightly when you press it with a finger. Check that the parts can rotate freely and without any unpleasant sound and that the belt does not jump the cogs when you rotate the ribbon rewind unit forcefully. The ribbon return roller should be easy to rotate manually. Once the motor starts, the belt will be tight and will drive the ribbon assist roller.

If the idler roller starts to squeak, lubricate the inside of the belt with a small quantity of grease. Label Stop Sensor Description Working Principles The label stop sensor LSS controls the media feed and consists of a sliding carriage on which two photoelectric sensors are fitted.

Both sensors are identical and contain one light-emitting diode and one light-sensitive receiver. The distance from the light path between the two parts of the LSS to the dot line on the printhead is 6.

The sensors can be moved up to 0 mm. In EasyCoder PX6i, this screw is only accessible when the locking handle is folded down. The label stop sensor is hidden inside the print mechanism and covered by two plastic guide plates, which can be removed for cleaning. The firmware detects the front of each label, that is, when the light is completely interrupted by the opaque label, as opposed to the semi-transparent liner in the gaps between labels.

If a renewed print operation gives the same result, an out-ofpaper condition is assumed. The beam is reflected back to the sensor in the lower part by the white media, or is absorbed by a black mark.

The firmware detects when the front edge of a black mark passes the sensor, that is, when light starts to be absorbed. By switching the cables from the upper and lower part of the LSS on the CPU board, black marks on top of the media can be detected.

The light will either pass uninterrupted through a detection gap in the media or be blocked by the non-transparent ticket. The firmware detects the rear edges of detection gaps, that is, when the light starts being interrupted. If a renewed print operation gives the same result, an out-of-paper condition is assumed. The beam will either be blocked by the media or be completely uninterrupted when the printer runs out of continuous stock.

General The information on where the gaps or marks are presently positioned relative the LSS and thereby also relative the dot line on the printhead is saved as an invisible file in the flash memory s file operating system see Chapter. However, if the printhead is raised, or if the power is interrupted during printing, this file may be cleared, which will affect any labels between the LSS and the dot line.

Note Fingerprint only : It is possible to decide if the media feed data should be cleared or not when the printhead is raised using the Fingerprint instruction SYSVAR 8.

By default, the media feed data are not cleared. Gaps and black marks up to 70 dots. The menus only provide indications from the label stop sensor unit. The testing menus can determine if the sensor unit is not physically in position, is blocked by dust or stuck labels, or is defective in some way.

Furthermore, this is an aid if media has detection complications.It covers the following topics: The right-hand door, that is, the doors that cover the print mechanism and media compartment. Therefore, the shaft is provided with six grooves which correspond to the standard widths of Intermec transfer ribbons see table below.

If not, 0 will be returned. By default, the media feed data are not cleared. Remove the T0 Torx screw that holds the sensor to the center section.

The NiceLabel Suite by Niceware is an advanced, easy-to-use, WYSIWYG Office style user interface barcode label printing software application that prints barcodes, text and graphics on direct thermal and thermal transfer barcode printer labels in addition to labels on standard laser or inkjet printers.
