Question about Toshiba TEC B-472 Thermal Label Printer
I have a problem with printing a set number of labels on my TEC B472 printer. I enter my quantity of 100 labels into the click print program and it will not print the full amount (the number it prints varies from 7 to 40 labels). Usually the display on the printer will count down from 100 but when this error occurs, there are no numbers on the display. It seems that the print job is getting automatically deleted from the print queue almost as soon as it joins it. Does anyone know how to solve this?
What is the software used?
Normally the printer will decrement or increment its counters when the correct instructions are sent, If it is the pc that sends the labels then your problem is due to the pc.
Otherwise if the count is internal then external electromagnetic noises may cause this sort of phenomenon.
If it's on a parallel port, then your problem may comme from the vibrations of the printer. The init signal on this port is very near to a gnd pin and with the vibrations this causes a reset of the printer.
Last problem may come from a firmware deterioration. All depends cpu either the firmware is Eprom or Rom.

You did not adjust the label sensor.(media sensor)
1- for labels with a noth move towards the notch
2-for labels with a space between them move towards middle.
