Re: Fault Alarm light is on

Hello, this is what worked for me>

  1. Pres the F2 to see whether the printer rolls out only one label.
  2. Turn off the printer.
  3. Pull out the labels roll and check whether its OK visualy (not teared, rumpled etc).
  4. Rollback by hand the labels to make the roll solid or replace the labels roll with a new one if there only few labels left.
  5. Put the roll back into printer and reseat the printer carrier assembly
  6. Turn the printer on and try if the issue is fixed.
  7. If it still pertain, follow the instructions in userguide chapter 4.6 regarding the steps for calibrating the labels roll and printer (
Hope this helps to solve Your issue as did mine.
Have a nice day.

No, you do not need a proprietary Windows program for Datamax E4203. But you do need the correct driver. You can download them for free - see the link on the Able Label Systems Thermal Printers page. Follow the links and look for the Datamax download. This may or may not solve your Checkpoint error message, but it is all that is normally required in order to enable standard Windows-based programs to access your E4203.
