You need to calibrate the printer using the instructions located in the manual. This should be in area 5.2 of the manual. If you don't have the manual you can download them at this address along with software updates and firmware updates.

49.XXXX

PRINTER ERROR

To continue

turn off then on

A critical firmware error has occurred that

caused the processor on the formatter to

abort operation. This type of error can be

caused by invalid print commands, corrupt

data, or invalid operations. In some cases,

electrical noise in the cable can corrupt

data during transmission to the printer.

Other causes include poor-quality parallel

cables, poor-connections, or home-grown

programs. On rare occasions, the formatter

is at fault, which is usually indicated by a 79

Service Error.

1. Turn the printer off then on.

2. Press Stop to clear the print job from

the printer memory.

3. Turn the printer off then on.

4. Try printing a job from a different

software program. If the job prints, go

back to the first program and try

printing a different file. If the message

displays only with a certain software

program or print job, contact the

software vendor for assistance.

5. If the message persists with different

software programs and print jobs,

disconnect all of the cables to the

printer that connect it to the network or

computer.

6. Turn the printer off.

7. Remove all memory DIMMs or thirdparty

DIMMs from the printer. (Do not

remove the firmware DIMM.)

8. Remove all EIO devices from the

printer.

9. Turn the printer on.

10. If the error no longer exists, install

each DIMM and EIO device one at a

time, making sure to turn the printer

off and on again as you install each

device.

11. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you

determine that it causes the error.

It begins to print then stops half way


Having the same problem here... very random... send a print job of labels and it will print the whole lot, or freeze at random points but always halfway through a label... no error message... unplug usb and replug doesnt do anything, but unplug and replug power and off it goes printing more lables but may even freeze again after only a few more have come out... also, every day the first print job of the day prints half the label and pauses for about 10 seconds then keeps going...

Trouble printing a thicker form


Hi,
I have come accross this problem on a number of sites. It may be the Paper Out sensor. It works by emitting light from one half of the sensor reflectiong it of the paer and picking it up with the other half of the sensor. When no paper is present, the light cannot reflect and hense a paper out error is reported. I have seen this error occur when paper with dark backing ( like that for bank and tax forms ) is used.
