Question about Datamax M-4208 Thermal Label Printer
I am having trouble when i changed the size of my labels the printer light is blinking ERROR. The on the printer screen is says position fault?????? What is wrong with this stupid thing?????
Check inside the green guide (sensor) for pieces of label. That will block the sensor. If the sensor is reporting a thickness which is double (250) what you expect, then that is definitely the issue.

After changing the size of your labels the printer needs to measure the new label length. Press the feed button for four seconds (wiht new labels loaded & printhead locked down). If this doesn't fix your problem you need to correctly position the media sensor.Make sure the short white line on the media sensor is above the label gap.
