Cleaning the Cutter

This procedure is a continuation of cleaning the media path. The plastic media path surfaces can be cleaned but not the internal cutter blades or mechanism.
The cutter is a factory-installed option in the ZD200 Series printers.
The cutter blade mechanism does not require maintenance cleaning. Do NOT clean the blade. This blade has a special coating to resist adhesives and wear.
There are no operator serviceable parts in the cutter unit. NEVER remove the cutter cover (bezel). NEVER attempt to insert objects or fingers in to the cutter mechanism.
Using unapproved tools, cotton swabs, solvents (including alcohol), etc. may damage or shorten the cutter’s usable life or cause the cutter to jam.
  1. Wipe the ridges and the plastic surfaces of the media entry (inside) and exit slot (outside) of the cutter. Clean inside the areas outlined in this image.
  2. Repeat as necessary to remove any adhesive or contaminate residue after the surfaces have dried.
