Do your disc prints have unexplained vertical white lines on them?
Dust or debris on your printhead is the most common problem associated with vertical lines that appear on your thermal printed discs.
What can I do to fix these problems-
Keeping your work environment clean is vital to minimizing the dust and debris that can build up on your printhead, causing a line in your print. Using a cleaning kit (swab & solution) regularly can help remove a buildup of dust or debris.
When cleaning your printhead it’s very important to never use anything that is abrasive, metallic or sharp. These types of objects can scratch the printhead and once it’s damaged the only option moving forward is replacement. If you’re unsure let us do the work for you
Is my Rimage Prism or Everest printhead damaged, or does it just need to be cleaned?
That is a question that may require us to physically inspect your printer.
What can Techware do to fix these problems-
Sometimes more work is needed and that’s where our service techs can help. We have the ability to break down your machine for a true deep cleaning. This removes the tough build up. We also work to identify any other problems that may be lurking in the printer. We’ll only recommend replacing faulty parts when absolutely necessary.
Our techs thoroughly clean the printer, then adjust & calibrate and restore your Rimage printer to like-new condition.
Why spend tens of thousands of dollars on new disc printing equipment when we can restore your systems for a fraction of the price.

Having issues with your Rimage Prism Autoprinter or 7100n/8100n failing to pick discs or dropping discs regularly?
Is your Rimage system’s problem getting worse? We can help.
Gripping issues can result from alignment being off with the printer or the input/output bin. The ribbon cable wearing out or being damaged can also cause issues. Ultimately the vast majority of Rimage picker issues are caused by the picking mechanism itself.
Techware specializes in repairing Rimage printers and hardware including pickers and grippers. Just recently a longtime customer sent us 5 bad grippers. We fixed all 5 and saved this customer over $2000 over the cost of new Rimage grippers ($700 each). Oftentimes grippers can be refurbished and keep right on humming along in production for years to come. Sometimes they need to be replaced – we’ve got the experience to help you make that decision.
We can also help you out with spare CD/DVD and Blu-ray burners. Power supplies, main boards, print heads, and embedded PC modules. Almost all Rimage models ranging from the 2000i, 3400/5400n, 6100/7100n/8100n to the newer 72oon/8200n systems.
Keep your Rimage printers running longer, with less capital expenditure by calling us today.

Every day we get calls from customers looking for help with their Rimage disc publishers. Today we fielded a call from a customer with multiple Rimage thermal disc printers and duplicators that needed some attention. Their Prism Plus printers were only printing on half of the DVD surface and they needed the disc detect strip replaced. They were also running into heat roller thermostat issues with an Everest II. Finally their auto-loader and a 7100n CD duplicator needed a new flex cable and picker mechanism to correct disc picking issues from the input and output bins.
Mike, our dedicated Rimage service manager, listened to their needs and determined that they could benefit from some Rimage technical support, potentially some repair services and that it might be a good idea to explore some cost effective equipment upgrade options.
Mike has over 15 years helping our customers keep their operations up and their costs down utilizing certified pre-owned Rimage equipment. The customer was thrilled that they found an alternative Rimage system and printer support option.

We are currently looking for a couple used Rimage 8200n or 7200n systems with Windows 7 or Windows 8 OS. Contact us at 952-944-0083 if you have a Rimage Producer IV 8200n system you are no longer using (ideally with the Prism III thermal monochrome printer).
We just completed a repair of a Rimage Professional Series 5300n disc publisher and Everest 3 thermal printer for a local customer. The unit was dropped off yesterday morning and we completed the service today. Our turnaround times are fast, but can vary based on demand.
These 5300n machines are 5 to 8 years old now, but still very solid equipment for making CDs and DVDs.
Typical repairs for the 5300n consist of:
- Thorough Cleaning
- CD/DVD Drive Replacement
- New HDD set
- Picker adjustment/replacement
- Front Panel replacement
- Everest III or 600 printer updates and cleaning
We turned this repair in just 36 hours and the customer is picking up their Rimage duplicator today.
Call us @ (952) 944-0083 x13 if you need help with your Rimage 5100n or 5300n. We have tons of spare parts. If you plan on shipping a Rimage duplicator or printer into Techware for repair please use the original Rimage shipping boxes and inner packing foam.
Keep in mind Rimage moved to California and that Rimage no longer supports the 5300n or Everest III printers. We do, and we are far easier and more enjoyable to work with.
Primera has decided to go in an unorthodox direction with the new 4200 disc printer and producers lineup. Where as the trend had been towards individual ink cartridges to save money on per print prices – Primera has decided to revisit single ink cartridges.
Bravo 4200 features the latest in inkjet printing technology from Funai Electric Company Ltd. Just one ink cartridge needs to be replaced instead of four tanks for CMYK, simplifying operation and on-going maintenance.
It’s an interesting play betting that IT admins and purchasing agents will pick simplicity over cost. Of course we’ll keep our eyes and ears on the market and respond accordingly.
