I have had this problem before, if you look behind the rewind plate there are two nuts one on either side, if you undo these and adjust the hight down slightly on the r/h side it should solve the problem.
hope this helps

Error 616


The software is not corrupt. The 606 is basically telling you that one of the dots that heat up to make the image on your paper isn't able to heat up correctly. Since the printer can typically shift these dots over from one side to the other to help compensate for these dots going bad, it is also saying that it can't shift either.

You're seeing this issue on a barcode, and instead of a barcode you're getting a gray box. If you're unable to make changes in your code that is going to the printer, that tells it what to print and where, your best bet is to purchase a new printhead form Avery.

Though the issue can be worked around, it is possible that now that you can print that barcodes you want, you may find that new ones won't be able to print because they're printing in that same space where the printer cannot shift dots to compensate for the bad one.

I keep getting wrinkled ribbon in my zebra XiIII printers Part seems to be caused by static, the ribbon will not rewind properly


Its probably not static. 1. Wipe the print head and platen roller with alcohol dampened qtip or lint free cloth. Print about 30 labels while gently pressing on the ribbon supply, causing it to drag a little and observe if the wrinkles stop. If so tighten the nut on the end of the ribbon supply a little at a time until wrinkles disappear. Check the head pressure toggles on top of the print head and make sure they are adjusted about the same. If you have been printing a lot of the same size labels, check the platen roller (white) at the point where the right edge of the label rides on it for a slight offset where the roller is worn down. If it is worn, the only fix is to replace the platen roller.

Intermec PC4 is skipping over blank labels when it prints. It prints one label then skips over 3 or 4 labels before it prints the next one


Make sure that the label is not larger than the printable area, carriage returns and spaces count as part of the label too. Also make sure that in the printer properties you didn't set the page width wider or higher than the actual label. Especially using MS Word, you may have to adjust the label slightly smaller to compensate for margin, header, and footer settings. Also be careful of mail merges which merge data larger than the viewable area on the label.

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

Military Shipping Labels


If your not getting an error message I would suspect that the margins have somehow been set beyond the printable area. I don't know what the width on a "Military Shipping Label" is but I've had issues with Zebra label printers printing on the very edges of the labels.

Zebra 105SL label issues


I am surprised that you are using that sequence of buttons to solve this problem. I am pretty sure that they want you to go into the "Media Sensor Calibration" setup in the config menu. It is a bit more complicated than what you have described. I also believe that the size of the gap on two of your labels might be out of tolerance (they are usually 1/8" gaps between the labels). The black marks are a problem for the transmissive sensors. You may need to move the transmissive media gap sensor (remember it has two parts: upper and lower). I would usually setup mine for a place beyond the black mark so that you are looking at just the white paper.

To start out:
1. Load the backing of a 6" strip of media (no label attached).
2. Remove a ribbon (if you usually use one).
3. Close the printhead.
4. Press SETUP/EXIT and then NEXT/SAVE until "Media and Ribbon Calibrate" appears.
5. Press "+" to start the calibration procedure. You should see the "Load Backing" in the LCD Display. You already have the backing loaded so continue to the next step.
6. Press "+" to answer the message and the next screen should say, "Remove Ribbon". You have also removed the ribbon.
7. Press the "+" to continue. You should see the screen say, "Calibrating Please Wait". After the sensors are setup by the machine a new screen should appear, "Reload All".
8. Open the printhead, and move the labels until they are loaded correctly to print. Smooth out the ribbon and load it correctly.
9. Withe media and ribbon now loaded, press "+" to continue and the machine should say, "Media and Ribbon Calibrate".
10. Press the Setup/Exit button once. It should say, "Save Changes Permanent". Press Next/Save to finish the process.
11. Do a normal calibration of your stock and print a label.

You are done. The machine will run for the labels you have setup the sensors for. Unfortunately, you must do this for each of the media types. To automate this, you could run a Configuration listing, capture the settings you just created for each type of label. Take these to a programmer to have them send the setup to the machine before the job. This is beyond the scope of this type support to really help you.

2 LABELS COME OUT


your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
