How do I prepare my unit for shipping to Primera for repair or exchange?
The instructions below should be followed for each product before boxing. It is best to use the original box and foam/cardboard supports. If you do not have the box, package the product in a box large enough to leave space on all sides. Do not use packing peanuts as filler material since the product will settle to the bottom of the box. Bubble wrap, wrapped in alternating directions, would probably work best. You can purchase a box from our spare parts store.
Bravo Disc Publisher Series Products (Except Bravo SE)
To prepare for shipping, remove the disc bins/holders, close the front cover, then do the following:
1. With the front cover closed, unplug power from the unit.
2. Press and hold the Cartridge Button.
3. While continuing to hold the Cartridge Button, apply power to the unit.
Continue to hold the Cartridge Button. The robotics will undock and the arm will lower. Power will shut off automatically once the robotics are in transport position. If you have the cardboard spacer that was shipped with the unit, replace the spacer inside the unit and close the cover. If you don't have the cardboard spacer, slide the arm gently to the right and secure it with masking tape and close the cover. (If you are unable to move the arm into shipping position because of an arm stall problem, please slide the arm gently to the right and secure it with strips of masking tape and close the cover.)
Send you print cartridge/Print Head with the printer for service. This will prevent the cartridges/print head from drying up outside of the printer during service and allow the service techs to analyze the cartridges if necessary.

Composer Plus, XL, Pro, MAX
To prepare for shipping, remove the disc holders and the printer (if present) and then do the following:
1. Reset the arm by pressing 'pause' and 'pick' buttons simultaneously.
2. Power off the unit.
3. Now press and hold 'sequence' and 'pick' buttons simultaneously while powering on the unit.
Continue to hold the buttons until the arm centers and begins to lower all the way down. You can place a piece of foam between the billeted\horizontal part of the arm, and the base of the unit. This will buffer the arm from the base, and help prevent any damage during shipping.
Power off the unit, wrap the roll bar, roll guides and roll drag arm in bubble wrap or paper. Secure it inside the box. Include a roll of your label stock and one of your containers for testing!
