Question about Zebra P210i Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Printing problem I bought this model P210i some 12 months ago.  It has been printing ok eversince and all of a sudden it started giving errors during printing.  What is is happening is that when everything is installed, and the printer switched on, the ribbon inside keeps rolling as if it wants to calibrate. Unforunately a red light is seen on the front button.  I have wasted about 3 new ribbons trying to calibrate it but nothing seems to work.  Is this a sign of death?  What should be done to get it back on track?

Re: Printing problem

Try to clean the light sensor inside the printer, you will see a white led on the top part of the case, match it to the bottom you will see a small hole on a plastic peice, that is the hole for the sensor.

Hello, I bought a printer a few months ago but it doesn't seem to work. I've installed the proper drivers but every time I try printing sth a got a message ''Service error 5100, cancel printing and then...


I could make several suggestion to "fix" the problem, such as clean the timing strip, etc., but since your printer is still under warranty, I'd suggest contacting Canon for a repair / replacement due to a potential hardware problem. You shouldn't be getting a "Service error 5100" after a few months.

Hope this helps.

Stops printing half way through a canvas

The service manual says
"0001001B Head driver (TG) temperature error"
Head failure or head cable splicing defective/breaking of wire
 Head cable joint
 Head Assy exchange

You might try pausing the printer for 10 minutes, before it gets to the halfway point to let it cool down, then un-pause it.

You don't say how large the canvas is. If it is 44" by 60" or something large, above might be OK, if it is only 24" x16", it might be more trouble than it is worth, unless you are only printing a few.

Printing error

Try to printing a configuration page from the print board if this works check all your network cables then try to PING the copier by...
Go to START on computer
then RUN
then type "cmd"
then type ping
press the space bar once
then the ip address in full and press return
if your network is ok you should get a signal return
and NOT a timed out message
If your network is ok
Try deleting the printer and re-loading the print driver making sure the IP address is the same as the one on the configuration page.
