Problems printing to a zebra printer with windows driver and ZPL?

Windows print is overriding the print width setting and the printer is saving this setting. The ZPL label format is based off the maximum print width for the printer. And this print is being thrown off because the maximum print width has been changed by the windows print. What can I do to reset the maximum print width after the windows print? How can I set the printer to not save the settings from the windows driver?

First check printer. Change setting "Print Width" to maximum width, save. Switch off. Hold down pause key while switching on (untill all but power light turns off). the subsequent prints should print across the full width. If this is OK fault is with label format.

If you are using windows printer driver check settings there this can over ride printer settings. If using ZPL the problem is most likely in the label format.

The settings in the printer driver are overriding the saved printer settings.
Do this:
1. Correct the printer settings and save them permanently.
2. Print saved configuration for future reference and to see if it changes.(Power on while holding cancel)
3. Print a label from computer.
4. Print configuration again (Power on while holding cancel).
5. Compare the 1st and 2nd printouts. If they are different then the printer driver is changing the printer settings. In other words the printer settings and the driver are different and the driver settings will override the printer settings before printing.
6. Change the driver settings and this won't happen. Increase the darkness setting in the driver.

Can we make 300 dpi Zebra 105 SL printer to print on label expecting 203 DPI, Any configuration setting?


Krishan, sorry there are no settings that will allow you to do this on the 105SL. If the printer code expecting a 203 DPI printhead and you have a 300 DPI Printer then your label will print out much smaller then normal.

If you are printing labels with a label printing package (such as Seagull Bartender for Windows) then all you need to do is to install the proper printer driver. If you have your printer attached to a system that is sending "straight" ZPL (Zebra Printing Language Code) then your out of luck.

Hope this helps

Are you trying to program in ZPL? if you are then you don't need a driver, send the code directly to the port and it will print. I would firstly reset the defaults to make sure there are no corruptions in the settings. Just in case you not sure, press and hold the feed button, the green light will flash 1 then 2 etc on the 4th flash let the button go and it will calibrate and reset to the factory defaults.

Only printing 1/2 a label


recalibrate the printer in the set up.
Don't just do a quick cal from the front panel.
Make sure your driver is the correct dpi zebra driver, either zebra or my preferred seagull scientific.
by .5 of the label, do you mean width or heigth.
If it is heigth, check to make sure you are set for top of print correctly. Also you will have to back feed for a label that short.

140XiIII left side print right side completely blank


Verify your LCD Display Print Width setting is set wider than your actual label width. The printer will only print to the width of the PRINT WIDTH setting. Also verify any driver or software settings as these override your printer settings.
