Question about Zebra 105Se Thermal Printer

Zebra 105SE label material will not retract in prep for next Lab

After printing a shipping label, our Zebra 105SE Thermal printer is supposed to retract the label material slightly in prep for printing the next shipping label. It will not print the next label until this retraction/reposition takes place.

We can only get it to retract/reposition by reaching inside the unit and manipulating the label substrate rewind wheel ever so gently.

Any ideas?? Bad sensor? Rewind belt slippage? Any assistance would be appreciated.

I agree. It sounds like your printer is set to Rewind. Changing the mode to Tear-Off should solve the problem.

The platen is the driving force for the label. the main drive belt runs all functions in the printer.
Is the back feed turn on in the printer? Check the setup.

Also if the print driver is set(doc/properties settings on print depending on software) to use pirnter settings, and the back feed is turned off in the printer, it will not backfeed.

Check to see what printer driver you are using. If you are using Seagull Scientific Bartender, you will need the printer driver from Seagull Scientific for it to print properly. You can download it from the Seagull website. Hope this helps!!

Can I print in color with a Zebra 105se


Thermal printers don't have any 'color' of their own; the 'printed' text/numbers are actually only areas subjected to heat from the printhead which exposes the color of tiny beads of ink that are on the paper itself by melting them. Use a fingernail to 'score' the paper and you will see it change color just as happens in the printer.

Zebra 105Se power on calibration


If this unit has the LCD screen you need to Press Setup. Then Press Next till you get to Media Power Up and set it to FEED. Next go to Head Close and set it to FEED also and then save settings. It will only shoot one label out instead of Calibrate. Which is needed when they install new lables if its the same type of label all the time really don't need to Calibrate every time you stick new labels in it.

Printing solid black across the label.


Sounds like a defective printhead.

Reinstall the old one to see if the problem remains or not.

Zebra 105Se missing line


Try cleaning the thermal printhead. Zebra makes thermal printhead cleaners or you can use a qtip and some isopropyl alcohol.

Make sure the printer is turned off before doing this.

Zebra 105 SE Printing Blank Labels


You need the correct driver for the 105Se. The 300 dpi SL driver is not compatible.

Unfortunately, Zebra does not make it's older drivers available online. You will need to locacte someone with the correct driver for whichever version of Windows you are using.

make sure the ribbon is installed properly. The thermal ribbons are only coated on one side with ink. Make sure the right side is facing the paper. If that is not the issue the thermal head might be bad.
