Yes, you can use the print preferences to configure the Mclass printer depending on the settings you want to make. You can change the print speed, heat, and even send commands to the printer if you wanted to. However, a much better solution to make changes in the printer to download the Datamax Printer Configuration utility from here: ftp://ftp.datamaxcorp.com/dmxConfig/Datamax%20Printer%20Configuration%20Utility.exe . This allows you to make changes in the printer without the need to use the buttons in the front panel. Hope this helps.

DATAMAX E-4203 ONLY PRINTING HALF OF THE BARCODE


I doubt the sensors would have anything to do with only printing half a label. I'm not familiar with the E-class series of printers, but the common causes of that problem that I've seen before with the larger M & I class printers can be:

1) A piece of label or ribbon is stuck on the printhead.

2) The printhead is not seating properly on one side, causing the printhead to be too far away from the label & platen roller to apply enough pressure in order to print.

3) A printhead cable is not seated fully somewhere and not supplying the signals properly to that half.

4) The main logic board is bad.

5) The printhead is bad.

6) There is a software problem or label configuration setting that needs to be corrected that controls the print width.

Dmx-4204 and zpl


You can't, on this obsolete model. zpl is "Zebra Printer Language." This model of Datamax is dpl only ("Datamax Printer Language"). Most current models of Datamax printers are dpl and zpl compatible.

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.

Datamax I-4208 Cutter Fault


if the cutter cycles on start up up?
if not, check connector(RJ45) underneath platen assy.
I connected the I class should immediately recognize the cutter.
If it does not cut ever, check you format to see if the cutter is turned on in the driver.
I have seen some failures from wear on the bell crank that cycles the cutter.

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).

Datamax problem


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