The label sensor is not detecting the gap between the labels.

Make sure the labels are loaded all the way to the left (as viewed fron the front) and make sure the label guide (near the back of the printer) is set to keep the labels from wandering away fromt he sensor.

There is a pair of infrared emiter and detector located above and below the label path. As label pass between, these measure the leading and trailing edges of each label.

If you haven't already done so, calibrate the printer, by using the "Online", "Calibrate", "Online" buttons. If the "Feed" button doesn't feed just one label, you'll need to adjust the label gap sensors. This can be a bit trick if your labels are very narrow.

There should be a small pcb on a shaft under the label path. Note its current location, then slide it left or right to get a better signal, and try the feed button again. On my Zebras, the sensor is not in the middle of the PCB. Look for a small metal "can" on the PCB and center that.

The upper sensor is more difficult to adjust, but if you manage to spot a very small PCB above the labels, it will be easier to line these up.

Advancing blank labels inbetween printing


Do you use adhesive labels? It looks like the printer is unable to make the difference betwen the labels. Verify that the printer it's not set on Continuous mode for the media type. Verify if there is any label (or pice of label) stiked on the upper media sensor (gap sensor). You can locate the upper media sensor using the User Manual (page 74). There is an User Manual available for download from Zebra website. You will find there precious information. The manual is very explicit and you will learn how to maintain your printer and how to troubleshoot some common errors. Clean your printer, assure to put the supplies on the right path, close the printhead and press Pause to enter in Ready state.
You can clean the sensor with an coton cloth dampened into isopropylic alcohol.

My zebra 105se printer got move to a different location and now it is printing very slow. Is there a way to set the speed faster?


Our company is an authorized reseller for Zebra printers, as well as labels & ribbon. You can adjust the speed and heat settings on your zebra printer, however your labels software will often override any settings. What software are you currently you using? If you can let me know, i will tell you how to change settings in your software- which will override the print to print faster.

My Zebra 105SE is printing fine on the left


I think the 105 has an adjustment on the printhead. There are left and right hand adjusters just above the printhead. It sounds as if the right hand one does not have enough pressure on it, try increasing the RH one and see the effect on the print.

Every label printed starts further down on label zebra 105se


It sounds like the problem is with the media sensor. Make sure you haven't loaded the ribbon through the same slot that the paper enters on the media guide. There is a reflective metal plate above the media that reflects the sensor from below the media.

Zebra 105SE label material will not retract in prep for next Lab


The platen is the driving force for the label. the main drive belt runs all functions in the printer.
Is the back feed turn on in the printer? Check the setup.

Also if the print driver is set(doc/properties settings on print depending on software) to use pirnter settings, and the back feed is turned off in the printer, it will not backfeed.

Zebra 105se blank labels problem


I would say the roller isn't the problem. I had the same problem on many Zebra printers, but often the calibration helped. Then it could do, when printing task label is for larger/longer than the label size is set in the printer system (conflict of software with printer settings after calibration). It could be set too down to bottom in Y axis. Or it could be in the software settings - as action after print - not sure.
Try to open the printer queue while the label is printed and check if the label has proper number of pages or there's 1 page more. If it is the right number - then the problem is on printer side (recalibrate, reflash it). If the number is about 1 higher, the problem is with settings of the label size (barcode software, printer settings) or action after print on PC side.

Zebra 105 SE Printing Blank Labels


You need the correct driver for the 105Se. The 300 dpi SL driver is not compatible.

Unfortunately, Zebra does not make it's older drivers available online. You will need to locacte someone with the correct driver for whichever version of Windows you are using.
