Printing to dark and intense. tightened screws now the ribbon keeps breaking and not print properly

It's hard to say based on the fact that your have already tightened screws. Without knowing which ones this may have caused the issue. One of the screws on the printer head is a set screw for the angle. If this is not set correctly it may break the ribbon. Based on your description of the colored ripples this means you are printing too hot and the ribbon is wrinkling under the heat. The only way to adjust this is to alter the printers internal head resistence settings. You would either have to succefully print a test card, or look at the under side of the print head to find the value. This should not be adjusted more then 300 points from the default value on the print head itself. to adjust go to printers and faxes, and right click the printer, go to printer properties (or just properties), device options, tools, properties, in the command line you must put the new value.
!R_XXXX ( where "_" is a space, and the xxxx is the value on the print head. hope this helps.

S4M automatically feeds extra labels everytime it's turned on

Set your print driver to "Do Nothing" on Head Close and Power Up. the next time you print will pass this information to the printer and the problem will not come back - actually the default for the driver is "Do Nothing" so it has probably been changed for some reason, you will need to change it back.

Horzontally double printing & characters are not clers.

Is the ribbon tight or sticking, If ribbon can't turn, it delays entire carriage, you will notice that if you move carriage up and down by hand ribbon turns, I have seen sticky ribbon s cause problems as well as gearing that drives ribbon with wornout gears

If self test fails then all faults /i can think of on these is

  • Dry rail/dirty bearing
  • incorrectly manufactured ribbon
  • Damaged dot head
  • broken/breaking ribbon interface carriage cable
  • worn ribbon drive gears
  • worn/dirty ribbon drive rail
  • main board
