Question about Intermec EasyCoder PM4i Printer

1 Answer

Locking up, keys beep but nothing else.

I have two intermecs PM4i with the same issue. This is an intermittent problem, both have hardwired NIC cards. Basically they lock up, pressing any key, menu buttons/feed button gives and audiable beep but nothing else, no feed, no menu, nothing.
Then its a matter of a few power downs to get them to respond again. I do have support but do not find them very forthcoming as this is an intermittent issue.
Is there any known issues?

Hi, i'd download the latest firmware from intermec, this is really easy to do.... Ive had many weird firmware issues with intermecs over the years!! Also if u have a paralell port..try a machine on that to see if the same errors occurr ( if they don't...may be looking at pcb, but its unusual to get two machines with identical faults), please try the firmware.

Will it do a test print? Probably something like holding the button whilst turning it on.

The Thermal transfer labels are not readable when I print to the Intermec easy coder PM4I. They print too light. I can use the same ribbon and label stock on an Intermec 3400 printer and they print...

You can adjust the darkness level +/- 10. If you adjust it all the way to 10 and it is still too light, there is a print head pressure adjustment screw to the left of the ribbon feed roller.

Intermec PM4i I have 4x6 labels in the printer. All my settings look correct. It prints like it thinks its a 3x4.

Check your driver to make sure you have the correct resolution driver installed that matches your print head. For example, if your print head says 203 dpi on it but you install the 300 dpi driver, it can cause this problem.
