On the right hand side of the print head is a blue thumb wheel. ensure this is set position 9, this will give you full width print. This adjustment is for setting narrow width labels.

I have used this type of printer before. Long ago when it was called the C-ITOH. However, never had to change the print head before. I would imagine that if you did - all the adjustments would need changing. Bad Gap would skip labels and bad pressure would make them too light or too dark. If there are any vertical lines (even faint) the print head is damaged. Also, these things are very specific as to media vs ink roller. You cannot use a paper ink roller with mylar labels. Vise versa works but those rolls are more expensive. I am sure you have tested this already but you point pretty exclusively to the "new" print head with your testing. Sounds like you have answered your own question. I would do some continuity tests on the head to see if it carries any current at all. Good Luck!

The printing is fading, more so on left of label, but also on right side of label


Try cleaning the thermal print head. If that doesn't do the trick, the printhead may be defective.

One label printing over two label forms


Always check to make sure the printer is advancing one label at a time by itself before printing. If it does then you know the printer has a good read on the label size. Then if it misaligns when printing then you know the problem is in the printer driver because the printer is only going to do what it's told to do.

So best is to turn printer off, power up, press feed to see if one label feeds ok. If the label feed is off at this point then the printer needs to be calibrated which is done by pressing and holding FEED while turning the printer on.

Hope that helps !

My zebra only prints the left half? I have tried calibrating, it does nothing. Can you help me out? Thanks


One of two situations exists:
1. If the printing stops with clear stopping edge, then the PRINT WIDTH setting has been changed from the default full width setting of 104mm.
Best way to check this is to take your tallest and widest label and print out a configuration label. This is done by turning off the priner, pressing the CANCEL key and holding while turning on the printer. Release the button when the calibrate led turns off. A config label will print and you can check the setting for PRINT WIDTH.

2. If the printing stops by fading away to the right side, then that is caused by a pressure imbalance across the printhead. There is more pressure on the left side than the right side. There are two toggles the press down on the printhead and the pressure can be adjusted on each by turning the knob on top. Readjust the right side until printing returns across the label.

Hope that helps !

I want to adjust the printing coz its prinnting on left side my barcode label size is from the right side is having more space


Not too sure what you mean here. If the print on the left side is Ok and faded on the right side, then the position of the printhead pressure toggle may need to be adjusted. Make sure it is positioned over the center of your label.

Hope that helps !

PRINTS ON ONLY HALF OF THE LABEL


If the printing clearly stops, then the maximum width setting of the printer is not set to the full 4 inches (104mm) of the printhead. Go into the setup mode on the printer and look for the setting called PRINT WIDTH and make sure it's set to 104mm or close to that. If printing is only half way across the label, it's because the width is set to something less than 104mm.

if the print fades away off the label, that is due to an imbalance in the pressure across the printhead.

Hope that helps !

Printing error print system exception error


I had this problem with the LabelWriter 450 Turbo and it was a .Net Framework problem.

1. Uninstall the Dymo Label software
2. Click this link to download .Net Framework 4.0 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992&displaylang=en
3. Reinstall latest version of your Dymo Label software (w/o printer connected to PC)
4. Reconnect label printer when prompted by installer

This should fix the problem

After changing the print head and setting the Ohm resistance, the left side of the printed labels are faded. I adjusted both head pressure and slid them back and forth but I can't get it to print right....


It's very possible the printhead wasn't installed correctly. It's pretty easy to get it wrong, as there are two pins on the latched printhead bracket that have to fit into two holes on the printhead itself. You have to get the alignment of these pins and holes just perfect before you tighten the screw. You have to make sure the aluminum plate on the printhead is sitting flat against the printer's printhead bracket before you turn the screw on top of the bracket.

Faded print is nearly always the 1st sign the batteries are nearly worn out - try new batteries. (it could be that metalic tape requires more power to print than the paper tape)
