Keep getting a check supply error


Slide out the Media Sensor (green plastic bar that sticks out over the labels) about 1 inch from all the way in ("in" = left if looking from front). Then press Feed to clear errors. If still get same error, then look for piece of label or ribbon stuck in that error - ok to blow out with canned air.

Hold in the Feed button for 4-5 seconds, which causes the printericon1.png to attempt to "Auto-calibrate." If that doesn't solve it, then slide out the Media Sensor (green plastic bar that sticks out over the labels) about 1 inch from all the way in ("in" = left if looking from front). Then press Feed to clear errors. If still get same error, then look for piece of label or ribbon stuck in that error - ok to blow out with canned air. Then try holding in Feed again for 4-5 seconds to Auto-calibrate again.

My datamax thermal is not heating up


These printers do not "heat up" as such. Possible causes are:

1. Incorrect ribbon type for fitted ribbon spools. Look at back plate and see which way arrows are pointing. If arrows point Anti-clockwise, then you require inside wound ribbon (i.e. standard datamax) If pointing clockwise then you require outside wound (i.e. Zebra type ribbon). Check ribbons by touching sticky side of label to ribbon (it will transfer ink to label on print side).

2. Could also be faulty printhead, Logic board or Power supply. These will require an engineer to check properly.

WE HAVE A DATAMAX CLASS PRINTER AND IT'S GIVING ME AN ERROR " TOP F FORM FAULT" WE DO NOT HAVE THE MANUAL. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP? THANK YOU


Most likely problems:
Wrong sensor set in the media type area. Gap, Reflective.
If the incorrect meday sensor is set, the unit will give a TOF error.
If you hae pressed the feed button and kept pressed for at least 4 labels, and it does not automatically calibrate, check the type of sensor.
If you still get error, and the correct sensor is set, do a complete calibration.

You can downlad the user manual at Datamax-ONeil Web site.

I have a datamax I series and I would like to know how to troubleshoot the stepper motor


What type of problem do you have?
Will the printer not feed?
There has been some troubles on early model of the Datamax I class printers that are detailed in a service bullitin on the driver/power supply.
If the printer feeds intermittently, or runs back wards(hunts) it is probably a board failure. I usually replace the board and the motor on exchange with DAtamax if under warranty.

Dear Sirs, I have a DATAMAX I 4308 ,I am very satisfied with him. Sometimes when I print on low speed after 20 min.labels are printed discontinuosly I had on display MOTOR THROTTLING ,printer stopped...


Motor Throttling is a warning message designed to protect and prevent the power supply and motor from overheating. It occurs after 30 minutes or so of continuous printing and printing slows down to about half the speed. It will eventually go back to printing regular speed, but if it's that much of annoyance it can be disabled under the printer menu under print control. If you wish you can do that.

Position fault error


The Datamax I4308 returns a position fault error if it cannot sense the label gap where its supposed to be, or if the sensor returns a value outside the permitted range. Re-calibrate to correct the error.
