    Thanks, I built a custom label but it is a very small size (smaller than a business card) and it doesn't print to the Intermec PF8... not sure if this is a communication problem between printer and computer or what...

Depending on what version of office your using you will find a label tab under mailings (in office 07) or under tools (previous versions) you should be able to specifiy a label type or build a custom label.

My printer is intermec PF8T i have i SAP program to print patient information but it cannot print the error is orange ligths was the error.


There are a few things to figure out here from a SAP basis administrator perspective these steps are common. Also I am just trying to help and with SAP there could be multiple solutions. Good luck.

Check SAP MarketPlace for SAP note: 1557674

Here are the steps taken from the SAP Community Network which might help. I would suggest reading the entire link as its informative. http://scn.sap.com/thread/1975158
Step:
run SPAD
to create an output device, choose Output Devices on the Devices/Server Tab
click on Display now you will be in Spool Administration window
click on Change button then Create tab will be appear, now you have to put the following information.
Under DeviceAttributees
put the Output Device name with shortname
Device Type: SAPWIN
Device class: Standards printer
you can put Model/Location/Message as per concern.
Under Access Method
Access Method: G
Host Printer: __default
save

Access Method
http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/4f/9c033cff903105e10000000a114084/content.htm
(1) Choose "S: Print Using SAP Protocol" if a print server with SAPlpd or SAPsprint is used to print barcodes.
(2) Choose "F: Printing on Frontend Computer" if SAPlpd and SAP GUI are used together to print barcodes, SAP GUI sends print job to SAPlpd, SAPlpd is started automatically and forwards the print data stream to the Windows print manager.
(3) Choose "G: Frontend Printing with Control Tech", only SAP GUI is involved in printing barcodes, SAPlpd is not used.

Here are the Intermec drivers:

Understanding the LED Indicators
LED Meaning
Green (blinking) Auto-Sensing mode

My problem is i am connecting the intermec pc4 on the laptop windiows 7 and it does not have a pararell cabel in the laptop i am trying to make the mashine recognize the serial and usb port


Read these instructions. You will need to buy a usb printer cable and follow these directions below. Good luck!
We at our laboratory have about 35 Intermec printers and after much trial and error they work well for us. They practically never break. I have also called their tech support and they were very helpful. They advice was FREE. (I promise I do not work for them)
Intermec Install Notes: (from Intermec)
How do I install the USB driver for my EasyCoder PC4 (PC4B or PC4C) printer?
Answer
Tools Required:
1. EasyCoder PC4 (PC4B or PC4C) printer.
2. Microsoft Windows compatible PC. (XP/2000 recommended, Vista NOT supported ( Note from Dole: it works with Windows 7 and probably Vista and Windows 8)
3. USB Cable.
4. Available USB port on your PC.
5. Latest version of the USB drivers (2.0 or better) which can be downloaded from http://home.intermec.com/eprise/main/GSS/Service/Content/Downloads/Show_DownloadSearchResults?Product=PRTRPC4C
Note: There are two parts to installing the USB driver. You will go through the Found New Hardware wizard two times. The first part is installing USB port and the second part is installing the USB to Serial port.
1. Download and unzip the USB drivers to a location on your PC.
2. With the printer turned off plug in one end of the USB cable to USB port on the printer and the other end in to an available USB port on your PC.
3. Turn the printer On.
4. Now you will get prompted with the "Found New Hardware" dialog box. Select "Install from list or specific location" and click Next.
5. Click Browse and select the location where you unzipped the files in step 1 and click OK.
6. Click Next. The USB driver will now install.
7. Now you will get another "Found New Hardware" dialog box for the USB Serial port. Select "Install from list or specific location" and click Next.
8. Click Browse and select the location where you unzipped the files in step #1 and click OK.
9. Click Next. The USB Serial driver will now install.
10. Now reboot your PC. The newly installed port may not show available until you reboot your PC one time.
The USB port is now successfully installed. In Windows the USB port will be assigned to a Com port. To find out what Com port number is assigned to it go to Device Manager and then Select Ports. You will see USB Serial Port (COMx). In addition, when using the Intermec InterDriver Windows print driver. The USB port will be shown as USB00x and the Description will be Virtual printer port for USB.
(You may need to set the printer as the default printer)
Other things to know about these printers: ( not from Intermec )
1) There are 2 types Direct and Thermal transfer. Direct I think heats up the label to get the writing on the ribbon. Thermal transfer uses a one time use ribbon to transfer images to the label.
2) You should use Intermec labels, if you otherwise the labels will probably not print properly
3) How to reset the printer. Turn off the printer, (in the back) then turn on the printer while holding down the Reset button on the top. Release the reset button when the light turns green then wait for the printing to stop. IMPORTANT: Next press the reset button for 1/2 second. If you hold it too long it will not reset the printer properly.
4) Every user will need to set the default label size.
5) If the print is coming out is hard to read do the following. Open the printer then remove the ribbon if there is one and scrape the metal with your fingernail. They give you alcohol and a cotton pad but your fingernail will work fine.
6) Another problem we have sometime is a label falls off and covers a sensor so the labels do not know when to stop. This hardly ever happens but look under the labels and check the sensor.

How do I get my hp deskjet 6940 to print labels. I'm trying to print Avery 5498 labels


You will have to use software to make the labels...like Microsoft Office Word, Open office Writer, or Microsoft Works. In MS Office Word (2003) go to tools->letters and mailings -> envelope and lables. Create the label you need.

If you use open office, go to File->New->Labels and create the label you need.

After which, you put the paper in the printer and print them out. May want to check out the size so you make sure it prints correctly.

-best of luck

Intermec PM4i I have 4x6 labels in the printer. All my settings look correct. It prints like it thinks its a 3x4.


Check your driver to make sure you have the correct resolution driver installed that matches your print head. For example, if your print head says 203 dpi on it but you install the 300 dpi driver, it can cause this problem.

Mis align printout


hi, its hard to say but.... does it feed ok or skip labels??? if it skips labels, the sensor will need replacement or adjustment, also download the latest drivers, and if your driver or software gives u the option, play around with the magnification settings, also double check length, borders etc, try making the label length setting appear longer , shorter etc. Hope this is of help to you,M,
