More About Imaging Kiosk & Photo Printer Power Supplies
POS kiosks are used in a wide range of retail, commercial, and even industrial settings around the world. These stand-alone units typically feature a touchscreen user interface with specific imaging and printing capabilities. A thermal photo printer is a standard component of these systems, and the unit may also include a separate scanner, receipt printer, various ports and input devices, and an integrated computer processing unit.
Another essential hardware component for these kiosk systems is the power supply. The thermal printer itself requires its own dedicated power supply, as most printers of this nature require high volumes of current delivered over specific, short bursts. Commercial thermal printers designed to produce high-quality photo prints demand a higher-performance power supply. Sometimes, issues that begin to crop up with your printer or with the kiosk itself could be related to a fault within the power supply itself. Plus, if you have multiple peripherals drawing power from the same power supply, it’s critical that you’re using the right type of power supply unit – one that’s rated to be able to handle the peak current requirements of all the combined components of your system.
What Are Some Common Indicators of a Problem with Your Imaging Kiosk & Photo Printer Power Supply?
You probably had to troubleshoot some issues with a personal electronic device before, but pinpointing a problem with the power supply of your imaging kiosk or thermal printer can sometimes be a little trickier. If you start to notice issues like these, it may be time to have your power supply checked:
Photos or text that comes out light, faded, or simply not clear enough. If the problem isn’t your print media or ink delivery system, it could be related to an insufficient power supply.
Compressed images or missing text
If the printed copy leaves out some details which were present in the original digital file, that could be another red flag. Look for lines of text that appear to be squished together, and also look to see that no portions of your image are missing altogether.
Printer stops or resets while printing
It feels frustrating to have your printer reset itself right in the middle of a print job, and it can become downright maddening if this starts to happen on a more regular basis. This can be another indicator of an insufficient power supply.
Photos or other hardcopy being improperly cut
If you’re working with larger pieces of hard copy, more energy is needed for your printing device to be able to cut large photos, posters, etc., properly. If you’re starting to see improper cuts (which can also lead to more paper jams), your power source could be the culprit.
Printing that’s generally slow or erratic
Maybe your print jobs are simply taking longer to process than they used to, or you’re just experiencing more in the way of slow or erratic printing. These kinds of glitches could be software or hardware issues; they could also come as a result of a power supply problem.
