Out of stock

Slide out the Media Sensor (green plastic bar that sticks out over the labels) about 1 inch from all the way in ("in" = left if looking from front). Then press Feed to clear errors. If still get same error, then look for piece of label or ribbon stuck in that error - ok to blow out with canned air.

I have a few Datamax-I-4206 printers and some of them have the Thermal Transfer ribbons and some do not....Do I need to have Thermal Transfers or cant I just print to them without it?

If the unit is set up for either(with the thermal trasnfer option- ribbon unwind and rewind assembly) you can use either ribbon- with thermal transfer stock, or direct thermal- with direct stock.
You can tell the stock by rubbing something across the stock to see if it will turn black, that is direct thermal stock.
If using direct, go into the setup and select media type- direct thermal.
If using ribbon- use thermal trasnfer option. But remember to install ribbon before calibration as ithe printer will error on out-of -ribbon.

The printer is datamax I 4208 give me an error top of form fault

Try moving the sliding green media guide out from the wall about 1/4 to 1/2 inch, until the white line is under the label path. This green piece holds the label sensor, which needs to be under the labels so it can sense the gap between labels (or the black mark on the bottom side of the backing, if there is no gap). Also, on the printer menu you must choose whether your stock has a gap (aka web) or black mark (aka reflective).

Hi we are using the Datamax Mclass printerwhen we switch on the printer it comes with error on the display screen as out of stock and position fault. could any one please help?

Check to see if you are using the right settings for your paper stock - could be a mark or a gap - this is in your printer settings.

Always check your paper sensor to make sure it is in the right position to see your paper stock.

Calibrate the printer - hold down the FEED button (should have printable stock loaded) and wait till the printer cycles 8-10 times. Will say "Calibration Complete".

If it says "Can not calibrate" then you probably need to check your paper sensor position again.

Hope this helps.

We use the Datamax Printer to print labels with labelview. The printer itself however keeps saying :position fault" how do I fix that?

Position fault or Out of stock when the printer is loaded with paper stock can usually be solved by calibrating the printer.

Press & hold the FEED button. Let the printer cycle 8-10 times. Should feed to the right position and say Calibration Complete in the window.

Hope this solves your problem.

We can not use our print DATAMAX DMX M CLASS

What type of stock are you using? Gapped, continuous, or reflective mark?
If you are using a standard gapped stock, and the stock is loaded in the printer and ready, press the feed button until 3-6 labels are passed beneath the media sensor.

If you are using reflective (eyemarked stock) go in the the media settings. Change the sensor type to reflective.
Make sure that the eyemark is presented to the sensot at the small white strip on the sensor. Do not move the sensor to a place where the sensor will see anything but the mark.

Out of stock

out of stock warning on display?
check to see if the label sensor is over the gap on the die cut stock.

if not die cut?
If reflective, make suree you have the correct sensot set in the printer configuration.
You can go to test, and print a conf label to see how it is set.
You may also have to do a calibration depending on the error
