Question about Datamax DMX-I-4208 Label Printer

1 Answer

I have a Datamax I-4208 label printer with a blank display. The printer still works just fine but can't read anything on the LCD. The back light still comes on and the display works for a moment when you first power it up then fades away.

Sometimes it's simply the Internet Browser settings. Go to File, then Page Setup and change the margins to 0.1 and all footers and headers to Blank or Empty.

Zpl emulation with datamax i-4208


You can't, on this obsolete model. zpl is "Zebra Printer Language." This model of Datamax is dpl only ("Datamax Printer Language"). Most current models of Datamax printers are dpl and zpl compatible.

Why wont my datamax 4208 printer read the same label format as the 4212


It will read and print the label format, but you need to download and choose a different driver for the other printer. Seagull Scientific makes the drivers for Datamax, so visit their site for the most recent versions. you will need to open your label format in your software, duplicate the label format and choose the new driver for the I-4212.

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.

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.

Datamax problem


You probably need to adjust the leveling cam if you have not done so already. This is the green thumbscrew near the print mechanism.
