Re: spits out label but cuts words off

Problem is solved by pressing the function key until "margin" comes up. Then press function key again while "margin" is selected. Use the arrow key to select the "###". Then once that is selected press the function key again. That solved the same problem I had. Good Luck :)

It cuts the label in half forcing me to Print twice to get the full label.

I finally figured this out for myself. It turns out that one of the function settings on your label maker got adjusted accidentally. Go to the "Margin" setting, then make sure there is one hashmark (#) displayed. It appears that one is the right number of hashmarks. When I put in two, the tape was too long, and with none, it cut my label in half. You enter the hashmark by pressing the arrow buttons at the top of the label maker (next to the Function button).

Too much tape

Hi, it seem your label maker is set to the last(amount) of labels printed. Go to: Print Labels, click; Number of Labels; clear to set to (1) Label. That should stop the run off of labels. Thanks paul70f9

How do you center the word in the center of the label? Meaning if a lable is 4 inches long and the word is 2 inches long I want an inch on both sides.

It's not a hi tech printer, to get close to that you need to space before printing and after, and use scissors to cut for an even label.

Zebra 140xiIIIPlus w/ attached cutter, cutter will not cut labels

For the cutter to work it is necessary to instruct the printer to "Use the cutter" This setting is usually accessible in the printer driver. Your label program interacts with the printer driver. Ensure that the cutter option is selected in the printer driver.

How do i limit the space between labels

I know exactly what you are talking about, the sad part is that I never found a fix for it. The only thing you can do is print more at the same time using a few spaces in between and cut it with scissors. There are some models that will waste over 1" on every label printed. It seems wasteful, but is keeping the machine from jamming and causing more problems.

After cutting the label the printer pulls media back about 1/2''

you can adjust the tear off position.
check if need the backfeed and what setting, if you need, you be able to stop doing that (no back feed) but can change the print on the lable.

I-class cutting issues

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.

Label printers are always finicky. I have strtix printers where I work and they give off wacky errors too.

Printing accurately

Hi there within the envelopes and labels print function within MS Word you will be able to set the correct label and sizes. If this doesn't work then adjust the margins.

This problem is nothing to do with your printer as you are sending a command to it and the printer is doing what you told it to do. Check the settings first.

Thanks J
