It will shut down properly after ejecting any media and re-seating the ink cartridge in the holder.


Install a regular black cartridge label code 0 into the left cartridge holder as you are facing the open printer door. Plug in the Power Cable only. Wait for the lights to turn off.

This is important. It is OK to hold it longer than 4 seconds but not less. Ignore any lights flashing. In few Alps Electric 1300 & MD-5000, the printer will start making noises and then it will print out the selftest. This printout contains bunch of info and calibration parameters.

Here are couple of most important ones. On the top of the listing you will see a serial number. It should match the serial number on the printer's serial number label although there may be some leading letters and digits Alps Electric 1300 & MD-5000 are not on the printout but are on the printer label. If it doesn't, the printer's controller board has been swapped.

Also look for the "Number of bands". That gives you an idea how much the printer was used. A band is a single head pass about 0. Basically, each time the head prints a band of anything, bands number Alps Electric 1300 & MD-5000 increase. There is no simple formula to convert this number to a number of sheets printed, but it still gives you an idea of how much the printer was used. There will be 2 bands about 0. If any of those thin lines is broken up or missing segments then there is a problem with the head unrepairable.

Some printers might also print a 0. Again, that band should be solid black. If it is Alps Electric 1300 & MD-5000, then the head is defective unrepairable. Basically, this is it. All the other info is not really usable by the end user. If this printout confirms that you have defective head, try first to clean it. Instructions for this should be located somewhere here, in the Files section.


Repairing the head or swapping it with another one is not an option. At least that is the information I gathered from reading the Alps forums and from my own hacking of the printer.

Each printer has an adjustable power supply. It is calibrated to a specific head. Also, each print element is calibrated.

If you swap heads with another unit, it might print but it will be out of calibration. So, the print quality and head longevity will be compromised. Here are additional instructions on printing a test page not as informative as the selftest above but still useful.

It doesn't matter if the printer is hooked up to a computer or not. Make sure that it is in automatic paper feed mode and has A4 or Letter size paper in the paper tray. Cartridges are gray not blue and the code labels should show 0, 1, 2 and 3. MD only uses the black cartridge not all four. Printer will start printing the test page.

However, the printers are analog, and printing is a process that leaves residues of paper media and ink, plus the effect of environmental dust and other debris will build up over time.
