Question about Intermec EasyCoder PC4 Label Printer

Open Question

Buffer gets full or does not reset.

We print 36 labels and the printer works fine. However, if we try to print 40 labels we get an error. ( The red light comes on) Is there a problem with printer buffer? How can we fix this? We are using the C4 printer driver, does that matter?
Thanks

    We were not resetting the printer correctly. We needed to:
    1) Turn off printer
    2) Press and hold Feed Button
    3) Turn on printer and release feed button once green flashing light appears.
    4) Wait for printing to complete.
    5) Press and release feed button for less than 1 second.

Used ink ?


From CANON FAQs:



Issue: Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
Solution: Ink Absorber Replacement Options i350

Ink Absorber Replacement Options This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.



Solution: Reset the printer
Resetting the Printer By resetting the printer's power, the print buffer is cleared and certain sensors are reset. If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur. Follow these steps to reset the printer:
  1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).

  2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .

  3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).

  4. Turn the printer back on.
Note: If resetting the printer does not work, please attempt any other solutions that appeared in your search results.If this is a hardware error on the printer, the printer may need to be repaired.

TEC B472 won't print full qty of labels


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.

Printing labels


Error 23 is "Image not found". You could try to increase the Image buffer size (in the front panel, "Setup, Service", "Memory Alloc", "Image Buff Size". I'd try to decrease the Rec and Trans buffers by 50kb to make 100kb available to add to the Image buf.

Printer won't print


Printer doesn't print, just feeds the label.
Check your Labels and Ribbon, ensure you have the right ones.
If you have the right ones, here's what you try.

Hit the "setup/exit" button once. Then hit the "+" button repeatedly until you get to Print Meth. It will say Thermal Transfer. That setting can be changed by hitting the select button and the + button. Change it to Direct Thermal Transfer. Then use the setup/exit button to Temporary save the changes. You can change it back to Thermal Transfer doing the same method.
You will get an error, because the ribbon is in. But you can see it it prints.

Try going to the manufacturer website and read the manual about the printer.
If the printer feeds ribbon and doesn't print, more then likely it's a print head problem. When I mean it doesn't print, I mean from the printer control panel without the computer connected.
If you cannot figure out how to print the internal print fonts or setup from the Zebra 4m+ printer, you again need to go to the manufacturers website and read the manual.

Did a little research, appears that I can get a rebuilt print head for about $400. Instructions to install should be with the print head, if not reverse engineering.
