SOURCE: The bottom half of some

First of all what is your printer model and manufacturer? What is your computer's operating system? What program/application are you using when printing?
If you are using windows xp or any Microsoft windows operating system, try to print from notepad to check if this happens as well from a generic windows application.

Click Start > Run > type in the box notepad then press ok

from there type a couple of lines about 10 - 15
example:
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test

and check if the issue occurs. If it occurred as well in notepad then it is just a format setting in your application.

SOURCE: Every other line prints only bottom half of text.

I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!

Printronix T5000r Label Syntax to print " character


It is a syntax error.

It should read:

D;POINT;075;095;12;6;"text"

You might be able to get away with this:

D;POINT;075;095;12;6;"test";"text"

quotes have to be in sets of two and elements have to be seperated by semicolons.

Missing lines 105SE


If you print too close to the top or bottom of the label, the printer might remove the whole line reather than print part of each character.

If the missing line is somewhere else, the printer might be using a "cached" image. If your software has a feature like "Clear Cache" or "Reimage Label", you could give that a try.

If this doesn't work, let me know the type of software you're using and I'll try again. :-)

I have blank lines through my printouts


Run the cleaning cycle. If that doesn't work, try to use an alcohol soaked swab on the print head. Some of the jets are clogged.
