You need to alighn your print heads and or buy new ones. Also, the paper must be the right specified paper or it will blotch or smear.

Cannon MG6120 printer will not print text. I have cleaned print heads several times. I think I have a clogged print head. Which of the 2 black ink cartridges prints text? How do I clean a clogged print...


I think you need to do is reinstall you software driver for the print program and start with known parameters. Then you can try to clean the heads. You should get something out of the printer if the heads are plugged it might be a dot or smear on the paper.

My datamax will not print labels even though it goes through the process


if the printer seems to function . and when your queued label printes, but no text on label, check to see if your driver will do a test print to the printer. if it does, check your fonts. Some Dmax printers will have a difficulty using TT fonts, especially in serial coms.. Try the printer fonts(datamax0, 1,2,3,4.

I am having a problem with the wax ribbon smearing on a thermal label after I imprint on it. Is going to a resin/wax ribbon the only answer?


Not necessarily. It could be a head adjustment. If you are just printing on a blank thermal transfer label stock then wax should be just fine. If you are printing on a colored stock then a resin/wax would be better. We use resin/wax on everything because it is the same cost and runs better. But if you have only blank paper wax will be fine. If you are smearing then I suggest adjusting your head. Even if it printed fine before as your platen roller wears down it will require slight head adjustments to print properly

Text is printing in a different place on each label as if it is offline


Text printed in different place.
Do you mean it's in the printing direction?
If this is the case you have to:
- Check that your label length is correctly programmed
- Check that your sensors are correcltly aligned.
- Check the callibration of the sensors

Currently have a TLP2742 duplicator which prints barcode and text. Need to alter this to just print the text. how do i do it?


Do you know if you are using a label software program to design the label or just ZPL (which is Zebra Programming Language) code direct to the printer? If it is software, then you can open that label design software file and remove the barcode. If it is ZPL, then you need to remove it from the code. I can help with this if you can email me the code.

your printing program needs a template, based on the label makers specs. That's usually what causes that, not the printer itself.

got backup?
