Question about Zebra 105Se Thermal Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
Do you use adhesive labels? It looks like the printer is unable to make the difference betwen the labels. Verify that the printer it's not set on Continuous mode for the media type. Verify if there is any label (or pice of label) stiked on the upper media sensor (gap sensor). You can locate the upper media sensor using the User Manual (page 74). There is an User Manual available for download from Zebra website. You will find there precious information. The manual is very explicit and you will learn how to maintain your printer and how to troubleshoot some common errors. Clean your printer, assure to put the supplies on the right path, close the printhead and press Pause to enter in Ready state.
You can clean the sensor with an coton cloth dampened into isopropylic alcohol.

It would be best if we had more information, or a picture.
For instance if you told me as the label is printing it does not print on the label, and it appears shifted to the right or front, then I would say, you need to re-calibrate the printer for that label.
If you were saying that the printer is printing on the right side of the label as you face the printer and watch the label exit the printer, then I would say, that the label size in the software is wrong, or the transfer ribbon is loaded incorrectly, too far to the right as you face the label exit path, OR the labels are loaded too far to the left as you face the label exit path.
Here is a link to a manual that may help as well.

The label sensor is not detecting the gap between the labels.
Make sure the labels are loaded all the way to the left (as viewed fron the front) and make sure the label guide (near the back of the printer) is set to keep the labels from wandering away fromt he sensor.
There is a pair of infrared emiter and detector located above and below the label path. As label pass between, these measure the leading and trailing edges of each label.
If you haven't already done so, calibrate the printer, by using the "Online", "Calibrate", "Online" buttons. If the "Feed" button doesn't feed just one label, you'll need to adjust the label gap sensors. This can be a bit trick if your labels are very narrow.
There should be a small pcb on a shaft under the label path. Note its current location, then slide it left or right to get a better signal, and try the feed button again. On my Zebras, the sensor is not in the middle of the PCB. Look for a small metal "can" on the PCB and center that.
The upper sensor is more difficult to adjust, but if you manage to spot a very small PCB above the labels, it will be easier to line these up.

He are the steps you need to calibrate your printer
Label Length Calibration
Note: This is typically the only procedure required when first installing the labels.
1. Load the printer with media and ribbon.
2. Press the printer front panel MODE key until the CALIBRATE LED is lit.
3. Press the FEED key and allow the labels to feed.
4. When the labels have stopped press the MODE key once to save the value in memory.

You need to calibrate. Hold down the feed key while powering the printer on, then let go. The printer will calibrate, print a config label, then fo into dump mode. Press the fee key again to go out of dump. Of your issue persists, there could be a problem with yoru media, or with the commands that you are sending to the printer.
