Poor Quality Print on Zebra 105SL direct thermal

I have poor quality print on a zebra 105SL direct thermal. There are small lines that do not print anything causing the barcodes to not scan. I tried cleaning the print head with a pen and a sheet system recomended by zebra. It looks like the print head is simply dirty, but no matter how I clean them I still have the problem.

How many labels has the printer printed? Because it sounds to me like you just need to replace the print head.

They are around $400 from whomever your supplier is, and very easy to replace.

Zebra 105sl printer labels print too small


There are 3 different DPI Printheads for Zebra printers if you print a label set up for a 200 DPI Printhead on a printer with a 300 DPI Printhead installed it will be about 66% of the size.

Zebra 105SL runs out of ribbon, the printer still continues to run, have tried calibration, still not stopping when ribbon runs out


Make sure that you have the printer set for THERMAL TRANSFER printing and not DIRECT THERMAL. It is possible to run the printer in DIRECT THERMAL MODE with the ribbon installed so in that case when the ribbon runs out the printer will not stop.

Our company has several Zebra printers that print out barcodes that are scanned using handheld scanners for many things including inventory management. The labels that come from ONE of these Zebras...


Power off printer. Press and hold pause button while power on. This will print dark black line across the entire label. Check for white vertical lines. If you see any in the area of the label where you are experiencing a problem then the printhead should be replaced. Power off and on to exit diagnostics.

Will print on sticker labels, but not on thick price ticket paper


If you are not using ribbon, the tickets are probably not Direct thermal. Try using a Ribbon and see if it works

We have our printer set up to print barcode labels


Have you checked for minute folds in your ribbon? Once you get a fold in the ribbon, no matter how small, you may have to manually feed several feet of ribbon through to get rid of the ripple. We have had similar problems in the past with inexperienced operators installing new ribbons.

Ladder orientation barcode printing bad resolution needs correcting


Try slowing down the speed of the printer. Faster speeds degrade the quality of your print. Try printing your serial (ladder) barcodes at 2-4 inches per sec. It should improve the quality of your format.

Zebra Thermal 2844 prints text poorly


Lizardlick,
I found this information in the user manual:
Let the print head to cool for one minute, then use a new
cleaning pen to swab the print elements (the thin gray
line on the print head) from end to end. NOTE: You do
not have to turn off the printer to do this.
If print quality remains poor after cleaning, try the
Save-a-Print Head cleaning film to remove buildup
without damaging the print head. Call your authorized
reseller for more information.
