    I had the same issue and fixed it. The levers that close the door with the print head were slightly bent out of shape. If you can move the door towards the unit more on one side then the other when it is closed, check the latch that keeps the door closed and make sure it it exactly 90 dregrees to the print head.

When I saw this problem it was because the thermal head was not close enough of the ribbon.
Check if the two little aatach of the front door are not bent and have them horizontally aligned.
I hope it will help

Printing faded


Hello Emma,
Try increasing the YMC Printhead Power;
Go to your printers folder (Printers & Faxes / Devices & Printers), right-click on Magicard Printer Series, choose Printing Preferences, then Advanced Options. Expand the Color section, then expand Printer head power, increase the Yellow, Magenta and Cyan power. The default value is 50. Try changing this to maybe 60. Click OK. Apply the changes, then exit Printing Preferences. You will need to restart the application you print cards from for the changes to take effect.
You can download the user manual for your printer here;
http://www.magicardonline.net
(just enter your printer's serial number in the QuickSearch box.

I hope this helps,

Regards,
MC.

Horizontal alignment ok, but right half not printing.


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.
Check this by pressing MENU and then the NEXT button until you see a setting for MAX WIDTH. It should be set to full width of 104mm. Anything less will stop printing beyond whatever the setting is. Change it back to the full width setting.

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 that press down on the printhead and the pressure can be adjusted by moving the right toggle to the right so that more pressure falls on that side of the printhead.

Hope that helps !

I want to adjust the printing coz its prinnting on left side my barcode label size is from the right side is having more space


Not too sure what you mean here. If the print on the left side is Ok and faded on the right side, then the position of the printhead pressure toggle may need to be adjusted. Make sure it is positioned over the center of your label.

Hope that helps !

My Zebra 105SE is printing fine on the left


I think the 105 has an adjustment on the printhead. There are left and right hand adjusters just above the printhead. It sounds as if the right hand one does not have enough pressure on it, try increasing the RH one and see the effect on the print.

After changing the print head and setting the Ohm resistance, the left side of the printed labels are faded. I adjusted both head pressure and slid them back and forth but I can't get it to print right....


It's very possible the printhead wasn't installed correctly. It's pretty easy to get it wrong, as there are two pins on the latched printhead bracket that have to fit into two holes on the printhead itself. You have to get the alignment of these pins and holes just perfect before you tighten the screw. You have to make sure the aluminum plate on the printhead is sitting flat against the printer's printhead bracket before you turn the screw on top of the bracket.

Prints faded


Hello mvjv,

To solve the faded prints you need to clean the printhead twice by going to the software and click the "?" mark icon on the upper right corner of the software window and then under General Links select Maintenance then choose Clean Printhead - do it at least thrice to unclog the printhead system. Then try making prints... If still cannot solve call Kodak Technical Support.

I hope I have been some of help.

No printing on right side, I replaced the imaging drum but that did not solve the problem.


There are two possible solutions to this common problem.

1) The Cyan cartridge may not be in 100% of the way. If the handle of the Cyan cartridge prutrudes even slightly, it can obstruct the printhead for the black developer. Remove and reinstall the Cyan cartridge and test.

2) The printhead is dirty, with some toner spillage on the printhead. All new imaging drums also include a new cleaning pad for the cleaning wand.

The cleaning wand is designed to clean toner off of the printhead. you can see this in your printer manual, but basically, just open the front cover, pull the the blue handle on the right side forward ( this opens the access cover for the cleaning wand on the right side of the printer ).

gently pull the cleaning wand out ALL THE WAY, then slide it back in ALL THE WAY. do this several times.

The cleaning wand is intended to travel across the print head in only one direction, which is why you should make sure that it is pulled all the way out.

One of these two solutions should fix your problem. If the problem is resolved, but then reappears after a short time, then you have a defective developer that is leaking toner on the print head. The color of the defective developer can be determined by the color of the cleaning pad after cleaning the printhead as discribed above.

Right side of label faded or blank after replacing printhead


Things to check:

1. Move the pressure arm further towards the outside of the printhead. Adjust if needed using only the minimum pressure required in order to achieve uniform print quality.

2. Inspect the printhead to ensure it has properly engaged the alignment pins. I have had after-market printheads that did not line up correctly and required "surgery" to make them properly seat on the mounting pins.

3. Check for worn platen roller bearings. If they're are sufficiently worn, one side of the platen roller will be slightly lower than the other.

4. Consider replacing the platen roller. They do wear out and require replacement. Zebra part number 40038M IIRC.

5. Check the printhead parallelism adjustment. The procedure is in the maintenance manual.
