Question about Zebra S4M Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Cannot print...mmm...on this paper

If I stand in fron of the printer ( facing the LCD screen) then I have the adhesives comming out on two columns of 50 (horizontal) by 30 (vertical) mm side by side.

Looked throught the menu and found "label top", "left position" and "media type" This last being the kind of paper to be used. The fact is that on the user manual this media type I'm trying to use doesn't figure.

I positioned the Media Type on "gap/notch" as there is a 4 mm gap between adhesives horizontal and vertically.

And when I print out the setting they are all on the left (standing in front of the darned device!) and the contour would go onto the first quarter of the right one.

Any Idea

The printer will not print the settings dependant on your media between 2 across. The printer figures you have one label wide enough to print the config page. Is there a reason you are trying to print this? You could set the printer driver to print to a file instead of the printer and get the settings that way. Or, if you are connected via TCP/IP, you can view it on the internal webpage of the printer.

How do I print envelopes in the printer Samsung SCX 4824fn? thanks


• Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the

quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes,

consider the following factors:

- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should

not exceed 90 g/m2 or jamming may occur.

- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should

lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not

contain air.

- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,

nicked, or otherwise damaged.

- Temperature: You should use envelopes that are

compatible with the heat and pressure of the

machine during operation.

• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and

well creased folds.

• Do not use stamped envelopes.

• Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows,

coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic

materials.

• Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with

more than one flap that folds over to seal must use

adhesives compatible with the machine's fusing

temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine's

specification to view the fusing temperature, see

page 82. The extra flaps and strips might cause

wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage

the fuser.

• For the best print quality, position margins no closer

than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.

• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope's
seams meet.

Place the side to be printed facing up.

E260 will not print labels


This printer has capability to print on labels. Here are some tips when printing on labels:


· Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that the labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

· Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to Heavy.

· Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25-psi (172-kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

· Do not use labels with slick backing material.

· Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.

· Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

· Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.

· Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

· If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2-mm (0.06-in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive.

· Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

· Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual-sided labels are not supported.

My OKI C5500 will only print from the MP tray, and will not take paper from the bottom paper tray, even though there is plenty of paper in the bottom tray. Its giving me a 490 Error message, but I do NOT...


490 error means -

LOAD mmm AND PRESS ONLINE SWITCH 490: MP TRAY EMPTY

Print job from MP Tray has been received and the MP Tray is empty.

Load the requested media (mmm) in the MP Tray and press ON-LINE.

Check your print driver settings and see if your defualt try is set for the MP Tray. Also see if the page setup for the print job is set for MP tray.

I have an HP C7280 All-in-one printer. I was


Well, I took the printer apart(as much as I could w/o removing any screws)and copied something onto card stock. I was looking for any extra business cards that I'd missed. The copying worked. I then unplugged everything and took the printer off of it's stand. I then noticed a piece of plastic from the feed in the back lying on the stand. I somehow managed to get it back on the printer where it belonged and voila! the printer worked! Don't know if the plastic piece was the culprit, but at least the printer works now.

Printing


Dear jamin4volks;

As per this excerpt from the Oki B4350 User manual:

"FACE UP AND FACE DOWN PRINTING
For face down printing, make sure the rear paper exit tray is closed (the paper exits from the top of the printer). The paper exit bin on the top of the printer stacks printed pages face down, capacity 150 sheets of 20 lb. paper. Pages printed in reading order (page 1 first) will be sorted in reading order (last page on top, facing down).

For face up printing, make sure the face up rear paper exit tray is open and the paper guide is extended if required. In this condition, paper will exit via this path, regardless of driver settings. Paper is stacked in reverse order, capacity 50 sheets of 20 lb. paper.

Always use this tray and the manual feed tray for heavyweight stocks to reduce the possibility of paper jams."

This manual is available at http://my.okidata.com/mandown.nsf/(MOC-B4350)/BE70FCAF93D577E285256E89005052F9?OpenDocument

Hope this helps;

Adhesive jam


Some adhesive still on the transfer or fuser. Try a cleaning page, or some manual cleaning with dry towel-paper if adhesive signs are visible on transfer. Do not try fusing unit because very delicate silicone film inside.
If stain are of a single color, (p.es. magenta) you must change this cartridge.
