Question about Datamax E-Class E-4203 Label Printer
Just recently, the labels printed by my datamax e-class 4203 label printer will not be scanned by my barcode scanner. old labels from the same printer are scanned just fine, but new ones, even copies of old labels, are not registered by the scanner. i successfully scanned an old barcode, then printed off copies of that same one, and only one of 5 copies worked. The assumption is that the printer is not printing the barcode with the same quality, but I can't figure out how to fix it.
1. The printhead in your printer might be scratched (evidenced by thin white streaks through your print). This is common, and the most likely cause. Printhead must be replaced.
2. Material might be stuck on your printhead (usually evidenced by wide white streak vertically through print). Printing surface of printhead can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton ball.
3. The ribbon might be wrinkling due to uneven tension, producing intermittent diagonal streaks in your print. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment and/or proper media loading solves ribbon wrinkles.
4. Poor pressure and/or printhead alignment. Evidenced by grainy, light or no print on one side or the other of the media. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment solves printhead pressure and alignment issues.
