Question about Datamax E4205A Printer

1 Answer

Approx. 42 second delay before each print job starts

Once it starts it prints all labels in the job continuously. Tried 3 different E-4205 printers. However E-4203 works fine with same print job. Is there a setting that I'm missing?

SOURCE: Won't print labels

Ended up being the heating settings - they were to low, so when I hit print...it would spit out a label but nothing would be on it.

Problem solved!

You need to calibrate the printer using the instructions located in the manual. This should be in area 5.2 of the manual. If you don't have the manual you can download them at this address along with software updates and firmware updates.

Label printers are always finicky. I have strtix printers where I work and they give off wacky errors too.

SOURCE: Datamax I 4208 prints slow when set to landscape

try using a seagull sceintific driver.
also if you are sending graphics (barcode) instead of an actual barcode decoded font, the printer will process as a graphic.
If serial, speed up to max, if parallel it should print quite fast

SOURCE: Regarding Datamax E-4203 - Won't print

Check to see that the label sensor is over the gap in the label. It is just under the head on the right hand side.
You might also have the unit configured incorectly. If you go to the Datamax site, you can download the printer config program, It is easier to use than trying to push the buttons in the correct order to configure the printer.
Also use at least a 6" long label, and print the config file to see if you are set correctly for gap mode if using die cut stock.

We had this same issue at one point. Ours turned out to be that the paper spool was not correctly centered. Open the hatch, you will see where the paper is clipped between the feed guides. Open the guides and make sure the paper is pushed all the way back up against the side with the control panel on it. Then clamp back down the guides, recalibrate, and see if that works!

sounds like you have the printer driver set to the wrong paper size
unfortunately some of these drivers disregard the settings you do in windows and so you need to set it twice , once in the windows printer dialog and second in the configuration wizard of the driver

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.

Labels unexpectedly stop printing half way through a job


Located winder further away from printer. Set winder to lowest possible speed setting. Thoroughly cleaned printer to remove any trace of label residue near print head and label cutter (sticky labels with pre-cut patterns are being used). No more problems reported. Will continue to monitor.

Sent too many labels to printer - need to reset


As the previous expert has stated, with the printer paused, press the cancel key to cancel the job. One thing to note, is depending on how your software sends the print jobs, you may say print 1000 labels, but the software sends it one at a time, so basically you have 1000 print jobs in the printer. If you pause the printer, press and hold the cancel key. Hold it for about 2 mins. This should clear the buffer.

Extra caracters on Zebra S4m


Since it happens with all your printers ,this tells me that it is not a printer problem.
SO....
Lets look at the application..
The first label sees it as PAGE 100 and if you print 50 it should count up to 150.
look at the application and edit it to turn off page numbering .

Not printing on whole label


Mine was doing this until I followed the steps to recalibrate it. Sometimes it goes back to printing incorrectly and I just recalibrate it again.
