Zebra 110Xi III Plus Printing Bar Codes too dark

I use this for a business and have noticed ever since I changed to a new transfer ribbon, the bar codes print too dark, so much so that the bar code lines run together and the barcode will not scan. I have tried to adjust the printhead darkness which is set at 25.0, down then tell it to permanently change, but every time it prints a bar code, it resets to the 25.0 setting. How can I solve this problem?

If it is the least setting for print head then you may need to dry ribbon by putting in sunshine for few hours

SOURCE: improper printing of barcodes

recalibrate the label length in the printer(hold feed and power up). from memory bar-one uses the label settings from windows, so go into printers and faxes under control panel and correct the label size

Keeping up with the Drivers is a very good idea, it will fix little problems that come along from time to time. Try resetting the printer defaults by entering the menu system and exiting, at piont of exit don't save permanently but cycle around to load defaults and exit. Go back in and set the printer up again, this time exit saving permanently.

SOURCE: z4m printer problem

You may have an element or two on the left side of the printhead that is worn out and not printing. The best way to see if elements are not working is to use the widest label you have and run the PAUSE test. Turn the printer off, press and hold the PAUSE key while you turn the printer on. Keep pressing for about 10 seconds and then you can let go. When the printer is finished starting up, a test pattern will print. Part of the pattern is a black box. Any elements that are not working will show as white vertical lines. The only way to correct is to replace the printhead.

Hope that helps !

All of the sudden my bar codes are not fully printing. Missing some lines on the bottom. Also the numbers are not printing rel clear. Have ran this label before and no problem. Now it is all bar codes.


Try cleaning the printhead, then print the zebra test print. (see user manual) or just print a solid black box 4" wide by 1" long. If you have white vertical lines through it you may need a new printhead.

If print test is good try increasing the heat/darkness setting

Zebra xi III Plus printing shadows and blurred text on labels. Initial printing was fine but all prints now have a shadow and blurred text.


Try adjusting your printhead. If that doesn't work you might need to replace.

Please contact me if you have any question or if you come across needing a printhead for your unit.

I carry all parts for that printer in stock .

Thanks
