  1. Press on both sides of the feeder and detach it from the printer by lifting it up and out.
  2. Flip the feeder over to gain access to its lower part.

  4. If required, adjust the gauge from right to left to match the thickness of the card to be processed, from 0.25 to 1 mm.
  5. Reinsert the feeder back into the printer. The feeder will be correctly positioned when you can actually hear a click on inserting it in the printer.

  1. Switch off the printer before cleaning the print head.
  2. Fully comply with the recommended cleaning cycles.
  3. Always avoid the print head to be in contact with sharp or metallic objects.
