Question about Zebra TLP 3842 Thermal Label Printer

Open Question

Cuts off long lines of text

I am using Crystal Reports to print material labels. When I have a particularly long part number, it cuts it off at a certain point. At first I check to make sure the toner ribbon was on straight, and it was. I thought it could be a problem with the right side printing margins, but I'm not sure. The cutoff is not a defined line, it's more a line of deteriorated printing quality, right of which printing ceases. If anybody has any ideas, please let me know as I need to get this project underway as soon as possible. Thanks!

what interface are you using? sounds like windows is sending the data to the printer as graphics which is much more intence then EPL hence the delay between each label.

SOURCE: possible print head failure

to test , press pause botton and turn on (press 5 sec.)
he print a "pause test".
check if print, if stop on ich gap and if come some lines across the print (if apear some lines, need new print head.) this step just pause wen print some labels, and then still print until turn off.
Turn off and turn on the printer to work normal.

To calibrate media, go on the setings to "sensor profile" and/or "run manual calibration, follow the steps. (dont forget to take the ribbon from the sensor.)
let the test run until finish.

SOURCE: Z4MPlus Ribbon wrinkles causing lines diagonally across label.

Could be down to tension on the ribbon roller/spool. Check to see if you have pulled out the end part of the spool (black bit) that should ensure there is back tension on the ribbon.

SOURCE: Zebra label alignment

you can adjust this in the template file for your price tags. how did you create your basic price tag label? in the zebra label creator? if so, make the adjustment there. if you have a .ejf file for your price tag label, you should be able to open it in notepad and add the height in pixel dots with the "q" or "Q" command from the EPL programming handbook. This can be a little tricky, but with some trial and error, you can get it.

E260 will not print labels


This printer has capability to print on labels. Here are some tips when printing on labels:


· Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that the labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

· Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to Heavy.

· Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25-psi (172-kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

· Do not use labels with slick backing material.

· Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.

· Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

· Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.

· Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

· If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2-mm (0.06-in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive.

· Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

· Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual-sided labels are not supported.

Brother ql 570 processes the print and cuts the label. However the information I want to print is not printed on the label sheet. Why is this happening?


1. is it printer other information, such as text ,photos/images or barcodes?
2. What are you trying to print.
3. Make sure the Ink color is Black.

Different Crystal output from model 9835 and 9855 Monarchs


Your software wouldn't care whether it's a 9835 or a 9855. It can't even tell the difference. Are your supply settings and communications settings the same for both printers? Any error messages on the display when you print?

Barcodes not scanning


Very possible you have a bad printhead. If you have a bad dot in your print area, it can cause barcodes to not scan. Look to see if you have a blank vertical line running down your label.

Poor Quality (black line)


Check the temperature settings. If all of the text and barcode is clear and not fuzzy, check the platten roller for low areas, cuts, or other deformity.
