Re-calibrate the printer. If still not working, take out the ribbon assembly by removing 3 screws and check the sensor ( "L" shaped plastic glass). If still not working, buy a new ribbon assembly.

Verifica que la configuracion del software sea la misma de los materiales que estas utilizando (DIRECT THERMAL OR THERMAL TRANSFER). Tambien puedes hacer un reset presionando las teclas PAUSE, FEED y CANCEL cuando enciendes la impresora.

Adjusting Datamax i class


If the ribbon is moving right on the I-4208 so far that you aren't getting print on the left of your label, the typical solution is to make sure that your ribbon roll is pushed all the way in, as far as it will go (at the top center of the printer on the black hub where the ribbon and it's cardboard core slide on). Similarly, make sure that the used ribbon that is winding on to the Rewind Hub at the top front is also in (to the left) as far as it will go).

The ribbon is printing blank labels


Is this the correct ribbon for a Datamax? The ribbon (satndard setup) is for the ribbon to inside wound whereas most printers are outside wound.

You can check this by using the sticky side of a label it will pull off ink (turn black) if it is there.

If this is the wrong ribbon do not be tempted to put it in the other way or you could damage the ribbon supply spool.

Errors= head cleaning fault. position fault


head cleaning fault, you need to remove the option for head cleaning.
The position fault may be due to either a wrong label size, wrong detecting sensor selection or your printer sensors needs callibaration

Position fault


Position Fault is common on Datamax printers with the LCD Display. Press "FEED" one time and this should clear it out. If not, "PRESS AND HOLD FEED" for about 5 seconds and release. This is called a Quick Calibration. Make sure the label sensor is in the correct position as well.

Display reads ready, but when print is press the labels run but nothing is printed on the labels.


Is your label "direct thermal"? or using a ribbon to print.

If using ribbon, high probability that you install the ribbon the other way around.

Will not feed full length of label. display reads "ribbon fault" datamax i-4208


You may need to take out the whole ribbon assembly by removing 3 screws. The ribbon sensor looks like a L shaped clear plastic glass.

If still not working. buy the ribbon assembly.
