Question about Zebra 110Xi III Plus Thermal Printer
I have successfully changed the printhead of my zebra printer - successful meaning that it prints. There are no error messages and the configuration printout is perfect. However, the config. printout still says the printhead is 203dpi whereas the new printhead is 300 dpi. When I try to print my own graphics, they come out stretched. I have installed a 300dpi driver.
Somehow the dpi as mentioned on the printhead might not be as stated. As you say it prints OK at 203 dpi. The printhead is extremely sensitive so I would advice you to load the 203 driver and then try normal printing. Its just possible that your printer is by default designed to print at 203 dpi, so even after replacing with 300dpi printhead, it continues to print at 203 dpi. Even though the printhead is capable of printing at 300 dpi, the machine regardless keeps the 203 dpi setting only. Try intalling the 203 driver and observe your print quality. I believe this problem will not appear again..........sodeep

Zebra says that you need an RFID upgrade to replace from 203dpi to 300dpi.
"In North America, the 110XiIIIPlus (203-dpi model only) has an RFID Ready option that allows you to upgrade to RFID technology in the future."
If this is 110XiIII, and not 110XiIIIPlus , then it may not support 300dpi at all.
As you said do not touch the printhead again until you get further instructions, parts on this kind of device are expensive.
contact Zebra Repair directly at 800-423-0422 , that is the only way to find out.

Its nbot the driver problem.and also not the problem of head because its new.it is the clear problem of the head cable.the cable which comes from head and goes into the main board of the printer.the cable coming from head that side is proper.that has no problem.but the same cable gor\es in to the main board on that side there is a problem.many a times removing that cable and reinserting solves the problem , but if its the main board got weak problem then removing and reinserting will not solve.and to solve this the main board will have to be resoldered at all the junction points where all the circuit points meets internally.solowly slowly when ever the joints will get bit loose ther printer will start excepting lower and lower dpi prints.so if you are faMILIAR with soldering job you can start doing this your self.but if you are not familiar then its a professional repair persons job.
what and where the problem is ,that is been explained.now how to continue thats your descision.
thank you for using fixya.
