Abstract

PURPOSE:To perform normal printing in one process, by a method wherein a plurality of printing element rows are provided to judge whether there is an inferior printing element and, when an inferior printing element is discovered, driving is changed over to the normal printing element row to drive said row. CONSTITUTION:Two printing element rows 2, 11 having the same dot pitch are provided and a switching element 14a changing over the first common wire 13a and the second common wire 13b is provided to a control circuit 14 for driving said printing element rows 2, 11. Before printing is performed by the first printing element row 2, the resistance value of each of the printing elements of the first printing element row 2 is checked by a resistance value judge circuit to check the presence of an inferior printing element. When there is no inferior printing element, printing is performed by the first printing element row 2. When the inferior printing element is discovered, the switching element 14a of the control circuit 14 is changed over to the side of the second common wire 13b. When the resistance value of each of the printing elements of the second printing element row 11 is checked and the resistance value is normal, the second printing element row 11 is driven so as to be delayed or advanced by the time necessary for the movement of a thermal head 1 over the distance between the first and second printing element rows 2, 11 to perform normal printing on a printing area 4.
