SOURCE: I-4208 DataMax printer

We had the same error after labels got wrapped around the feed roller. When we were called to investigate the problem, the fault error was there. After 2 1/2 hours of troubleshooting both on the printer and online we came across this page. I took the roll of labels out, cleaned the media sensor and re-threaded the labels. Well, that didn't work too well as I still had the same error. Since we have 2 thermals setting side-by-side, I opened up both hoods and noticed that the "green" slider just beneath the sensor was slid all the way in. On the other printer however, the slider was slid out until a white etched line was at the tappered endpoint of the sensor. I slid out the other printer that had my error, hit the feed button, and whaaa-laaa, the error disappeared. There are some minor distance feed that we have to reset, but it is up and running! I hope this may help you out in your situation too.

Re-calibrate the printer. If still not working, take out the ribbon assembly by removing 3 screws and check the sensor ( "L" shaped plastic glass). If still not working, buy a new ribbon assembly.

Try moving the sliding green media guide out from the wall about 1/4 to 1/2 inch, until the white line is under the label path. This green piece holds the label sensor, which needs to be under the labels so it can sense the gap between labels (or the black mark on the bottom side of the backing, if there is no gap). Also, on the printer menu you must choose whether your stock has a gap (aka web) or black mark (aka reflective).

Errors= head cleaning fault. position fault


head cleaning fault, you need to remove the option for head cleaning.
The position fault may be due to either a wrong label size, wrong detecting sensor selection or your printer sensors needs callibaration

My printer still says top form fault


snosel: The label sensor need calibration. Press and hold FEED button by 5 to 8 seconds. This method is a quick calibration. Or maybe need to make the complete calibration in printer menu.

Top of Form Fault error


It means that the printer did not get a good calibration on the label. First make sure the label sensor is in the proper position. Look at the green bar that the label passes underneath and make sure that the white line (the sensor) is positioned over the label. Then calibrate by pressing and holding the FEED key for about 5 seconds until the labels start to feed. After a few labels feed out, the printer should now have a good read on the size of the label and be ready to go.

Hope that Helps !

Position fault


Position Fault is common on Datamax printers with the LCD Display. Press "FEED" one time and this should clear it out. If not, "PRESS AND HOLD FEED" for about 5 seconds and release. This is called a Quick Calibration. Make sure the label sensor is in the correct position as well.

Will not feed full length of label. display reads "ribbon fault" datamax i-4208


You may need to take out the whole ribbon assembly by removing 3 screws. The ribbon sensor looks like a L shaped clear plastic glass.

If still not working. buy the ribbon assembly.
