Question about Datamax I-4208 Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Datamax I-4208 has different position than i-4308 or prodigy max

We use Bartender for our labels. Labels set up with default settings in Bartender 9.41 are offset down on the i-4208 ~ 1/8". On an i-4308 or datamax prodigy, the labels print as expected. We have 2 i-4208s. Same effect on both. Reset one to factory settings, still the same result. There is about 1/8" of missing margin at the top. Changing the label definition larger or smaller results in more unusable area on the bottom. Label size is determined by the gap sensor, as recommened by Seagull. Setting manual label size has the same result of missing space. Anyone run into this before? Any ideas?

SOURCE: Datamax M-4208 shows ready but does not print

Hi,

I belive that, PC can detect the Printer and the only problem, the drivers are unabled to route the print queue and that creates a problem.

If your OS is XP/Vista/2000, try the below steps.

1.Right click on MY computer ->Properties->Hardware->Device manager.

2.You will get Device manager window popping out.

3.Scroll down to "Universal Serial BUS controllers".Click on the (+) sign.

4.Check for the "USB Composite Device" and right click on it, click Uninstall. ((IMPORTANT NOTE:WE HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, TO KNOW WHETHER IS THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, RIGHT CLICK ON USB COMPOSITE DEVICE AND PROPERTIES,look for what location says, Eg -LOCATION : Datamax M 4200)).

5.Disconnect the USB and reboot the PC.

6.Connect the USB after reboot, you will get popup "Found new hardware".Then the Drivers will be installed Automatically.

You probably need to adjust the leveling cam if you have not done so already. This is the green thumbscrew near the print mechanism.

SOURCE: Datamax I 4208 prints slow when set to landscape

try using a seagull sceintific driver.
also if you are sending graphics (barcode) instead of an actual barcode decoded font, the printer will process as a graphic.
If serial, speed up to max, if parallel it should print quite fast

Label print too light


This could be caused by the darkness setting coming from the label software / printer driver. It's set too low and that setting will usually override the darkness setting in the printer. That's why test labels are fine.

Hope that helps.

4208 Datamax M Class printer Problems


Check inside the green guide (sensor) for pieces of label. That will block the sensor. If the sensor is reporting a thickness which is double (250) what you expect, then that is definitely the issue.
