Datamax M-4206 - error light whenever load or print labels

Hi,

We have had the above Datamax label printer for a few weeks now and I have never been able to get it to work. We need to print on labels that are 18mm x 25mm. As soon as we load the labels and press the feed button as per the setup guide the error light comes on. We have to recycle the power to clear it. Also - as soon as we try to print anything (we are using Labelview 7 - I set the size to 18mm x 25mm etc) - it prints one and then feeds through another 5 or 6 blank ones and then the error light comes on. Again, I have to recycle the power to clear it

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Many Thanks

Kev

Perhaps the sensor is out of position, you must move to the left. Also check that the hole senser is not blocked. Also verified that the sensor type (gap or black mark) in the software is correct.

What is the backing?


The Backing is the see through paper on which the labels are stuck to. It can have a light yellow or white color. While the printer prints, the labels move through the label sensor, usually green in color. The gaps between the labels triggers the sensor to indicate where the printer should start to print.

Hope this Helps. (",)

We have just gone live on sage 1000 and are trying to print labels designed in sage paperless to send to our Datamax m-4206. Labels print but we cannot get the information to line up on the labels. Is...


This can be caused by either the software, or the printer's electronic or mechanical settings. Software will usually override the printer settings for print speed, temperature, label dimensions, etc. In order to fully diagnose, I would need to know if the print is too high, too low, too far left or right, or skipping a label, etc.

Wrinkles in ribbon using Datamax H-4212 printer


Definitely. possible solution match the width of your label and ribbon. if your ribbon is wider for .5 inch it should be good.
1. check your spindle alignment, printhead alignment and rotate the green knob on the printhead while printing so that you'll see the difference.

Datamax M-4206 printing too slow


Hello,

The way you can do this is to use Datamax fonts in your LabelMatrix program instead of truetype fonts like arial or times new roman. After making this change, do a test print and see if print improves. Another possible solution is use USB instead of Parallel cable (if you're not using it already).
