Your software label template does not match the size label your printing on. Make sure your label size IE: 2.25" x 1.25" matches the template size in the software, then perform this calibration:

SOURCE: labesl are printing very light in the center. OK

This is a good challenge so lets start with the "simple stuff".

First, Have you cleaned the printhead? If not just use a Q-Tip and some rubbing alcohol if you don't have any other cleaning materials.

Second, look at the platen (the white roller) are there any cuts or hunks missing? This would result in voids every-time the platen rolled around to that point during printing. If you see any, the platen needs to be replaced.

Third, it would be odd but do you see any stuck labels on the platen? If so remove them.

Fourth, the "standard" 105 SL has one tension spring. I'm guessing it's already centered in the middle of the label?

Tops of numbers are not printing

The bounds for printing are often misconceived, Are you sure that your printer can print edge-to-edge? If not, Try resizing the columns and printing again.

You could also try editing the page layout settings so that the margins are around 1/4 inch or more.

Will it print from edge to edge on the paper?

Most will not, at least not with the drivers that the manufacturers give you.The only time I have had a printer print edge to edge is when I got my Windows Mobile 6 phone to print via bluetooth to an HP printer that came with a bluetooth dongle. I could not get that same printer to print edge to edge when printing from a computer, no matter what I did.
Here is some more advice regarding HP printers (since you didn't specify which printer make or model, and HP is the most popular): 
from: How to Print to the Edge With an HP Printer '
"Not all HP Printers will do borderless printing. If you don't see the borderless paper option, your printer does not support borderless printing.)"

Printing is faint on edges of documents. I have a CLP-300 printer, when I print the edges of the sheet are very faded, but the center seems to be fine. Any ideas what would cause this?

If your printer prints like this with areas printing faintly,
The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you Hope this helps you.

Black line along the right side near the center when copying ONLY

It is printing way to far to the left

Check the paper edge guides on your paper, sounds like the copy paper is too far one way. Make sure the paper is centered and the guides are tight against the paper.

Hope this helps.
