Cant get my printer to line properly for invoice printing.


Setting Top of Form, Forms Tear-Off ON

(Step A)

! If you turn the platen knob when the printer is turned

on, you will cause the Top of Form to mis-align. Always

turn the printer off before turning the platen knob!




1 Turn the printer ON.

2 Park the paper.

3 With paper out of the unit, (red alarm light should be on)

press SHIFT (1) and QUIET/TOF (5) to reset the current

Top of Form.

4 Press FF/LOAD (3) to load the paper.

5 Press SEL/MENU (6) to take the printer off line.

The SEL light goes out.

6 Wait until the paper moves up to the tear position, then

press and hold TEAR (4).

The paper moves to the current Top of Form.

Keep pressing and holding TEAR.
7 Press and hold SHIFT and release TEAR.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Feeding-problems


you need to calibrate. hold the feed button down intill it flashes 4 times in a row and the quickly let go. it will feed some labels to calibrate and should stop at the tear off. you also have to set label size in the driver to keep from losing calibration.

Will print on sticker labels, but not on thick price ticket paper


If you are not using ribbon, the tickets are probably not Direct thermal. Try using a Ribbon and see if it works

After Print job the printer skips and goes to next tearoff


check you manual, set the printer back to default. or it might be with the program your trying to print with. try print a test page using your driver. if it still the same. uninstall and reinstall it back to your computer to restore it to its default value

Printer setup


Continuous forms paper fed through the front of the printer also uses either the Front Push, Rear Pull, or Push-Pull tractor configurations. Make sure this is set correctly or it will reverse your margins.

It could also be your software. When you print through windows it's using the Microsoft system font controller, but your software could be setting font, margins, and alignment by the settings in the printer not in the driver. So if the first doesn't work, set your system back to align left then go into the printer configuration menu on the device and adjust the margins there.

Advances ticket too far after printing.


your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
