Question about Sony DPP-FP30 Thermal Photo Printer

1 Answer

Prints only seem to cover half the width of the paper. Not a problem with margin settings. It seems the head fades out part way across.

I am reprinting something I have printed on this begore. The printer worked when I put it away. Never had a problem before. Windows test print which usually works on this fades the same way. Left of the page is perfect. I have checked for paper jam, nothing in there. I have tried brand new ink and paper. No difference.

My zebra only prints the left half? I have tried calibrating, it does nothing. Can you help me out? Thanks


One of two situations exists:
1. If the printing stops with clear stopping edge, then the PRINT WIDTH setting has been changed from the default full width setting of 104mm.
Best way to check this is to take your tallest and widest label and print out a configuration label. This is done by turning off the priner, pressing the CANCEL key and holding while turning on the printer. Release the button when the calibrate led turns off. A config label will print and you can check the setting for PRINT WIDTH.

2. If the printing stops by fading away to the right side, then that is caused by a pressure imbalance across the printhead. There is more pressure on the left side than the right side. There are two toggles the press down on the printhead and the pressure can be adjusted on each by turning the knob on top. Readjust the right side until printing returns across the label.

Hope that helps !

Half of the labels information is printing


I'm assuming you mean half is showing up as you go across the label. If that is the case and it's a very clear line where the print is cut off, then check the print width setting through the front panel of the printer. Press SETUP and look for setting called MAX WIDTH. It should be set to 104MM (4") which is the width of the print head. It is set to something smaller if the print is being cutoff.

If the print is fading away as you go across then that it is a print head balance issue. Look at the print head pressure dials on top of the print head assembly to make sure they are set evenly.

Hope that helps !

PRINTS ON ONLY HALF OF THE LABEL


If the printing clearly stops, then the maximum width setting of the printer is not set to the full 4 inches (104mm) of the printhead. Go into the setup mode on the printer and look for the setting called PRINT WIDTH and make sure it's set to 104mm or close to that. If printing is only half way across the label, it's because the width is set to something less than 104mm.

if the print fades away off the label, that is due to an imbalance in the pressure across the printhead.

Hope that helps !

The printer only prints half a page then moves to next page and a


Before printing, the printer checks the paper size. If the paper edge guide is positioned incorrectly, the paper may be fed at an angle. If this happens, the bottom of the paper is therefore at an angle and not perpendicular with the paper feed rollers. This can result in the paper sensor not recognising the real page width as it can only detect a certain amount of the bottom of the paper sheet which is nearest to it.

If only part of the width of the paper is detected, the printer considers that the paper width is less than it actually is. To avoid printing on internal parts of the printer such as paper feed rollers, the printer automatically cuts the image to fit the detected paper width As this phenomenon depends on the paper feeding condition, it can be random.
Reload the paper and make sure it is loaded correctly. All the way to the right and the paper guide correctly adjusted.

Printer only prints half of page


My printer does this when the paper isn't seated properly and/or that paper guide isn't set correctly. If this all seems OK, then try a head clean. You should be able to do this from the printer options in Windows.

Samsung CLP-500 output problems


i have found that removing the toners, and shaking them side to side, while keeping them horizontal, which seems to spread the toner for even distribution. This can sometimes fix the problems with fading prints. hope it helps.
Margins i think might be a problem with the wysiwyg of the program, some don't do it well, but also excel in particular has a shrink to fit page option, you may find the percentage not at 100%. you can also copy an excel table to word and print from that if it is driving you nuts.

Epson V200 Copy Utility Problem with Incorrect Margin Output

I had the same problem forever and i just sat down today to fix it.
I have a Konica Minolta PagePro 1350w for my printer. The resolution
is set default at 600x1200 when in the Output Paper - Paper setting.
Change the resolution for your printer if you can to 1200x 1200 in the output paper - paper setting in the copy utility software, and
that should solve your problem with this half page copies. It might
still cut off some margins at the very edge, but most of the time they're just
plain paper margin. Hope this helps you out.

Zebra TLP2844 Prints Centered and Half the Width


create a word template document with the page size the same size as the label. Set the margins to 0 and fill the label up with text. This should make the printer print right the way over the bale.

A faded line prints across the page


The imaging bar has speck of dust on it.
Turn printer OFF.
Open the printer. Pull out the transfer roller. Should have a big green handle. Do not touch the roller.
Look inside for a shiny rectangular block about 5inches x 0.5 inch.
This is the imaging bar. Using a lint free cloth with no chemical and no water, gently wipe this bar to remove any specks of dust/paper specks.
Put roller back.
Close the printer.
Turn printer ON.
Problem fixed.
