Turn the Printer off and turn it back on. See if it skips a couple of labels. If it does not the printer needs to be calibrated. Press the Setup/Exit Key and the press the Next Key until you see Media Power UP: IT should say Calibration if it don't then use the arrow keys to get to Calibrate press the Next key again and you will see Head Close select Calibration using the same method mentioned above. After that Press the Setup/Exit Key and Save Changes Permanent. Turn the printer off and on again and the first 2 labels should skip while the printer aligns the media. Test Print and see if that fixes the problem. Good Luck

you need to calibrate. hold the feed button down intill it flashes 4 times in a row and the quickly let go. it will feed some labels to calibrate and should stop at the tear off. you also have to set label size in the driver to keep from losing calibration.
Make absolute sure that the ribbons are following the path that printed in white on the frame. From there, do a ribbon and media calibration from the LCD display. this will calibrate the media and ribbon sensors and should solve your problem. Another method is to use the ribbon sensor and ribbon LED values from working 110xiIIIPLUS. Do this by printing a configuration label on your working printer and compare these to the values for Ribbon LED and Ribbon Sensor on your non-working printers. You can manually enter these values in the LCD menu and save settings. If all of this fails, you may have a hardware problem with the sensors.
Keeping up with the Drivers is a very good idea, it will fix little problems that come along from time to time. Try resetting the printer defaults by entering the menu system and exiting, at piont of exit don't save permanently but cycle around to load defaults and exit. Go back in and set the printer up again, this time exit saving permanently.
To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps. 1. turn the power off 2. hold the feed button down 3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button. 4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button. 5. turn the power off. 6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.
Make sure the label size is set correctly and the printer is calibrated. If this doesn't work download drivers from Nice Lable or Seagul Scientific websites to suit you Printer, these are more adjustable than the original Zebra drivers and handle small labels better.
Turn off the printer and place your finger on the green feed button. With the button depressed, turn the printer back on. Let the light flash (ONLY!) four times and release the button. Printer will cycle through 2-3 labels. Press the feed button one more time. You've just set the printer back to factory default.
Note: If printing in Direct Thermal Mode, default the printer first (4 flashes).
1. Load the labels and ribbon (if used) and close the printer 2. Turn on the printer power. 3. Allow the printer to feed or error out. 4. Press and hold the feed button until the green status LED flashes once, then twice. Release the feed button. 6. The printer will set the media sensor for the label backing being used and then automatically feed until a label is positioned at the printhead. 7. A profile of the media sensor settings (similar to the example in Figure 1) will print. Upon completion, the printer will save the new settings in memory and the printer is ready for normal operation. 8. Press the feed button. One entire blank label will feed. If this does not happen, try defaulting (Hold the FEED button until it flashes 4 times)
