Question about Datamax DMX-I-4208 Label Printer
I have a Datamax I-4208. When I print, the printer does not react for a very long time... several minutes. If I go to the Print Queue, the status says "printing." If I "cancel" the job, the printer will print the info immediately, BUT in really tiny letters. This tells me that the communication is there, but why won't it print in the first place? Is there a setting on the printer itself that may not agree with the EasyLabel Platinum software?

Apparantly, you have the present sensor enabled in the printer and there is no physical present sensor option installed. Go to the printer menu by pressing MENU. Press FEED until you get PRINTER OPTIONS and then press CANCEL. Press FEED until you get to PRESENT SENSOR and then press CANCEL. Press FEED until it says DISABLED and press CANCEL. Press MENU repeatedly slowly until you get a prompt to save changes then press CANCEL. Press FEED to clear error and it should go away.

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

Re-calibrate the printer. If still not working, take out the ribbon assembly by removing 3 screws and check the sensor ( "L" shaped plastic glass). If still not working, buy a new ribbon assembly.
