The printer will only print one tag then 3 empty tags in between each printed tag it is suppose to. I reset default settings but nothing helped


This is often caused by a corrupt driver, a small bit of software that tells you system how to deal with this printer.

You didn't provide enough info on your system, software, OS etc. for a detailed answer.
Try re-installing the driver.

Avoid buying a new thermal print head!!


Thermal printheads - white lines - - move your image!

Hi People,

I've been a printer engineer for many years now, before that i worked designing label formats and operating thermal transfer printers that produced over 2,500,000 labels daily. During my time operating thermal transfer printers I discovered that sometimes you can have a printhead that blows 1 pixel out, and no more will blow for 3 - 6 months! As sod's - law would have it, the blown pixel would be through a barcode or image, making the printer unuseable until the expensive (usually 300.00 - 1500.00 pounds) printhead has been changed. If you have many vertical white lines through your labels or tags, this might not work. Most makes of Thermal printers that have an LCD display will have margin settings and/ or image movement settings that you can change through the operator panel, you will have to consult your user manual. Simply move the image across the page until the white line caused by the blown printhead is in an unprinted area or sufficiently hidden between characters! In addition to this, if you are using software such as bartender, label matrix or similar, you should be able to edit the label image or label format on your Pc, and manipulate your label format in a matter of seconds, again moving or changing your data fields in a way that hides the offending white line between characters or in an unprinted area. I know this will not always work, but its worth a go as you could extend the life of your print head by upto 6 months.

When I print my labels, there are lines that run through it


The lines(voids) are being caused by elements that are worn off the printhead. No energy is getting there to release the ribbon, causing a void area. To see the full extent, just create a label, using your widest label, that prints a thick black line. You will easily see the "void" areas as white lines.

This is common over time due to the constant contact with the ribbon. The elements wear down just like the tires on a car from the constant contact with the road.

The only way to correct is to install a new printhead.

Just one of the double tags is printed on


I assume by double tags you mean 2 labels across the roll.
You need to tell your software that the roll is 2 across.
If using the software that comes with the printer, Zebra designer.
Set your label width to twice the single label and copy the barcode so that you have 2 across the label, then print

The 'eye' won't read the space between the labels,


recalibrate the sensors and check your label lengths and gap size

Zebra label alignment


you can adjust this in the template file for your price tags. how did you create your basic price tag label? in the zebra label creator? if so, make the adjustment there. if you have a .ejf file for your price tag label, you should be able to open it in notepad and add the height in pixel dots with the "q" or "Q" command from the EPL programming handbook. This can be a little tricky, but with some trial and error, you can get it.

PRINT WILL NOT STAY ALIGNED ON EACH LABEL-RUNS ONTO NEXT LABEL


Check the tension on the Ribbon Take-up Spindle there is a nut on it that sometimes can loosen or tighten its self and will throw off the lables. Its a nut that has a of couple Hex nuts on the corner, screw the nut to about the 3rd thread from the top of the bolt facing you then tighten the hex nuts on the corners of the nut. Then try printing the labels make sure the media guide also is set to the lable size that is installed.

Printer problem


I called CAM Commerce Solutions, the retail POS software we use, and they were able to fix my problem. I was missing another component of the print program that only CAM Commerce has.

RE: Dymo Letra Tag


If you use the "dynmo letratag 2000", just press the shift button (the green arrow button) and then the letter "N" (above that letter you should see the text "2=").

That will add a carriage return on your current position and the following text will appear on the second line when printed.
