Question about Toshiba TEC B-SX4 Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Skipping 1 mm (regular intervals) while printing labels

While printing labels (continuous), the labels are getting skipped. For example, when we try to print 50 labels continousely, after the fourth one the stationary gets skipped by a mm, then after another 4 labels this gets skipped again, and this goes on which makes the later labels useless.

Appreciate if anyone could help.

Skipping labels

Do you use adhesive labels? It looks like the printer is unable to make the difference betwen the labels. Verify that the printer it's not set on Continuous mode for the media type. Verify if there is any label (or pice of label) stiked on the upper media sensor (gap sensor). You can locate the upper media sensor using the User Manual (page 74). There is an User Manual available for download from Zebra website. You will find there precious information. The manual is very explicit and you will learn how to maintain your printer and how to troubleshoot some common errors. Clean your printer, assure to put the supplies on the right path, close the printhead and press Pause to enter in Ready state.
You can clean the sensor with an coton cloth dampened into isopropylic alcohol.

Datamax I-4208 not printing allocated amount of labels

Eventually you HAVE to give the printer a break, during inventory times at work, we have to print 50K+ labels, and in order to prevent either serial number skipping or other issues, I print in 250 batches, yes; there is a time gap but it's better than to restart a series of prints because a few numbers were skipped. Try printing 200 and 200 sets to prevent errors or skips.

Zebra 2746e will skip leaving a blank label while printing.

You need to calibrate. Hold down the feed key while powering the printer on, then let go. The printer will calibrate, print a config label, then fo into dump mode. Press the fee key again to go out of dump. Of your issue persists, there could be a problem with yoru media, or with the commands that you are sending to the printer.

Skipped Print Areas on Printouts

You may have a bad toner cartridge, if the cartridge has contaminants in it, it will not put toner on the drum in these areas, Try removing and giving the cartridge a good shake, try installing a new or at least another cartridge to see if the problem is here.

Hope this is of some help.

Mis align printout

hi, its hard to say but.... does it feed ok or skip labels??? if it skips labels, the sensor will need replacement or adjustment, also download the latest drivers, and if your driver or software gives u the option, play around with the magnification settings, also double check length, borders etc, try making the label length setting appear longer , shorter etc. Hope this is of help to you,M,
