When I try printing, the label sheet comes out without being printed then stops and the "condition/error" lights blink.


First you need to check the blink rate:
If fast this denotes a ribbon error - check ribbon is installed correctly.
If slow this denotes a label sense error - check the sensors are clean and are correctly aligned.

Hi - My Brady IDPAL says it is printing, but nothing actually prints... silence. I was reading about the "insert labels" contact issue. It not that.


Hello, this is a response from Brady's technical support team. Please try this:
The three contact pins in the printer are not making contact with the smart cell computer chip (the shiny silver pad at the bottom of each cartridge). The occurs after the printer is dropped or after shoving
cartridges in at an angle.



To remedy, remove the cartridge and look at the bottom of the cartridge opening (just above the Power button). Take tweezers or needle nose pliers and pull slightly on the pins (outward, and towards you). Please double-click and View the file below for a picture of the pins. Once these metal contacts are out far enough to make contact with the smart cell (computer chip) on the label/ribbon cartridge, the printer will know that labels are loaded.

In addition to the Insert Labels error, contacts that get pushed in can result in two other issues:
One, the printer will only print if the cartridge is pushed down
(which makes the smart cell touch the contacts).
Two, if one or two, but not all three, contacts are not all the way out, the printer may only print on half of the labels (because it is only reading some of the silver bars on the cartridge's computer chip, and narrow media activates only one or two bars, where as wide
media activates all three).

When I try to print with my Brother PT-1200 label maker, it says "ERR" and does nothing. I changed batteries and the label cartridge but still nothing.


open the back of the label maker. remove the cartridge. in the lower right hand corner of the where the cartridge fits, there are 3 little posts that are pushed in when you insert the cartridge. find the holes on the cartridge that fit over those posts. cover the holes on the cartridge with tape. reinsert cartridge. try again. worked for me. If you push in the posts individually, you can figure out which one is giving you the error message. I'm not sure that it really makes a difference. I taped over all three holes and it worked fine after that. i realize its not a perfect fix, but may allow you to print anyways!

I have a Zebra Z4M printer. We use it to print on various labels - pre-printed and blank labels (semi-gloss). I've been struggling to print on one of the pre-printed labels. Everything else prints...


some labels are hard to calibrate, nee to calibrate the sensors with manual calibration.
1} go to the MEDIA AND RIBBON CALIBRATION,
2}take 2 or 3 labels from the base paber, load the way to the based paper stay unther the sensors, 3}close printhead.
4} press ok.
5} Move the ribbon out from sensors and close the printhead.
6) press ok
7) wen printer ask RELOAD ALL, load the labels correcly and the ribbon, close the printhead and the top door, and press ok. The printer run the calibration it self.
wen finish, saved (press setub twice) and test.

How do I load labels in monarch 1100 price gun


    Loading
  1. At the back of the pricing gun, there's an opening with two spindles to hold a roll of labels. There's also a slot and two small, black rollers, where you'll place the first label to begin feeding them into the gun.

    Insert a roll of labels into the gun opening so that the beginning of the roll is at the back and comes up over the top of the gun. Insert the beginning of the roll into the slot, squeezing the trigger halfway. Push the labels through the gun until they come out at the front. Thread the labels up and under the black plate on the front of the gun and then under the rubber roller. Squeeze the trigger again and pull six or seven labels out. Discard the labels, leaving the paper backing. Thread the paper backing into the underside of the gun, next to the handle, in the direction indicated by the arrow. Push the paper backing while squeezing the trigger until the gun begins dispensing labels.

    Printing
  1. If the print on the labels is off-center, place a penny in the slot on the right side of the gun and hold it in place. Using another penny, turn the adjuster on the left side of the gun in a clockwise direction, printing test labels to check your correction. Keep turning the adjuster until the print is centered.

    To replace the ink cartridge, turn the latch on the right side of the gun to an upright position. Pull the door out. The ink roller is on the end of the door in a plastic holder. Push the holder apart slightly to remove the old ink roller and insert a new one. Replace the door and turn the latch to hold it in place.

You have to program the tearoff.
See the manual or use a windows driver to end the value to your printer

Every label printed starts further down on label zebra 105se


It sounds like the problem is with the media sensor. Make sure you haven't loaded the ribbon through the same slot that the paper enters on the media guide. There is a reflective metal plate above the media that reflects the sensor from below the media.
