Bask11,
sounds like the printer needs to regap itself. Turn the printer off, hold the feed button down and while holding the feed button, turn the printer back on. As soon as it flashes, let go. It will regap itself. When it stops moving, press the feed button once and there should be a priinted line that says 'out of dump'. The printer should be ready to go then.

SOURCE: An extra, blank label prints from a Zebra 2746e.

Check media settings in the printer driver. Check version of printer driver. Zebra printersuse an internal printer driver with their Zebra Designer software (Zdesigner driver) or a ZUD (Zebra Universal Driver) for other windows applications. These drivers can be downloaded directly from the zebra website.

Alternatively you can download the seagull scientific driver and use that instead. (used with bartender program)

Label skipping occurs if the media dimensions are not specified correctly. The important ones are label height, and media setting for type of media.

Perform a media calibration before you go changing settings. Power on printer, Hold top and bottom buttons in on control panel for 5 seconds, release bottom button only then when printer starts feeding labels release top button. When printer finishes press feed button.

Check the drive belt. It might be missing a tooth if the printer is older. I can assist if you want to check this.

What causes intermittent skipping of labels? In the middle of a print job the printer will spew a blank label then continue on with the print job, I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue.


Check your mailing list. Especially check how many invisible spaces are after a name or address. Suspect extra characters are pushing the mailing list into the next page or label and then it will print an extra blank page or label. Seen this happen when I was a Computer System Administrator and had to fix a similar fault for a client.
There is a reveal code option on most word processors that shows up hidden spaces.

Datamax M 4208 Printer - Barcode is missing when we print the label and we also get 10 extra blank labels with it. Please help me with a solution


Sometimes it's simply the Internet Browser settings. Go to File, then Page Setup and change the margins to 0.1 and all footers and headers to Blank or Empty.

Not printing all labels


Do a calibration, this should fix the issue. Also make sure that the label stopper (silver peg on label holder) is pressed firmly against the labels. This will stop the labels from sliding around during a print, throwing off the calibration. Also check to make sure the sensors are free of any dust.

MY ZEBRA TLP 2824 PRINTS IN THE MIDDLE OF MY LABELS.


Don't shoot it, they're too hard to cook.

Make sure your program is set for the label size you're using. Also, there is a photo eye under the paper path that picks up the labels. It will, in time come out of adjustment. It can be cleaned with a swab and alcohol.

Label Spacing


Make sure printer is set for "non-continuous" supplies(media).
Also try calibrating printer. You can download a quick reference manual at zebra.com

Ptouch 1100QL waste of tape issue


It isn't actually "before the actual letter comes out," as you said, but rather after. You have probably noticed that you must do a "feed" first or the cut won't clear the end of the label and you have to do it again. This just reflects the distance between the print head and the cutting bar.
There's no way to avoid this if you must have the one label you just printed right away and you don't have any more labels to make at the moment.
However, if you have several labels to make, you can economize by printing them one right after the other (without any "feeds" or cuts), then once you're all done, do a "feed" and cut. The labels will be close together, with little waste except at the ends, and you can cut them apart with a scissors.

I-class cutting issues


You need to calibrate the printer using the instructions located in the manual. This should be in area 5.2 of the manual. If you don't have the manual you can download them at this address along with software updates and firmware updates.

Label printers are always finicky. I have strtix printers where I work and they give off wacky errors too.

Printing every third labels ---> not every one:(


Sounds like the label height is set too high. Go into Printer Preferences in Windows and change the height dimension to match the size of the label you are using.
