    Power light equal flash – 1 sec &
    Cleaning light equal flash 3hz = Waiting for the cleaning card to be inserted.
  5. Once the cycle is complete, we recommended repeating once more with the other (clean side) of the cleaning card to maximise cleaning effect.

Thank you so much! The ID printer is working great and we really appreciate the honesty of your technicians! We could have easily been billed for repairs that weren't done, as our printer is no longer under warranty, but you didn\'t charge us at all. The technician superstar told me that it was a simple loose wire, which he reattached, and they shipped it back at no charge. Thank you!
