Thermal Tweeter fail, that’s all folks @dangerousproto

It looks like Thermal Tweeter has come to an end. After 15 rolls of paper the printing is light and the paper isn’t feeding properly. We tried adding some extra delays in the software, but even at 4 seconds delay per line the problems still happen. It’s supposed to have a life of 30 miles of paper, but maybe our rough handling and continuous use damaged it.

Watch the paper pile grow.

There’s a video of the broken printing below the fold.

  1. Noo!

    Perhaps the unit needs some cleaning? Or we did use an agrressive setting in the init that will burn the printerhead. Is the psu still working?

    :D it was fun though!

    1. That might be it! I touched the PSU and the plastic was soft to the touch because it was so freaking hot. I’ll give it a cool down and try again. I don’t think I have any other hardy 5volt supplies though.
