Make sure that the label is not larger than the printable area, carriage returns and spaces count as part of the label too. Also make sure that in the printer properties you didn't set the page width wider or higher than the actual label. Especially using MS Word, you may have to adjust the label slightly smaller to compensate for margin, header, and footer settings. Also be careful of mail merges which merge data larger than the viewable area on the label.

    Sometimes the printer has to be cleared. Power off the printer then hold the feed button while powering the printer back on. Continue to hold the feed button unill the light next to the feed button starts flashing. Let the feed button go. The printer will preform a memory dump and realign itself.

My problem is i am connecting the intermec pc4 on the laptop windiows 7 and it does not have a pararell cabel in the laptop i am trying to make the mashine recognize the serial and usb port


Read these instructions. You will need to buy a usb printer cable and follow these directions below. Good luck!
We at our laboratory have about 35 Intermec printers and after much trial and error they work well for us. They practically never break. I have also called their tech support and they were very helpful. They advice was FREE. (I promise I do not work for them)
Intermec Install Notes: (from Intermec)
How do I install the USB driver for my EasyCoder PC4 (PC4B or PC4C) printer?
Answer
Tools Required:
1. EasyCoder PC4 (PC4B or PC4C) printer.
2. Microsoft Windows compatible PC. (XP/2000 recommended, Vista NOT supported ( Note from Dole: it works with Windows 7 and probably Vista and Windows 8)
3. USB Cable.
4. Available USB port on your PC.
5. Latest version of the USB drivers (2.0 or better) which can be downloaded from http://home.intermec.com/eprise/main/GSS/Service/Content/Downloads/Show_DownloadSearchResults?Product=PRTRPC4C
Note: There are two parts to installing the USB driver. You will go through the Found New Hardware wizard two times. The first part is installing USB port and the second part is installing the USB to Serial port.
1. Download and unzip the USB drivers to a location on your PC.
2. With the printer turned off plug in one end of the USB cable to USB port on the printer and the other end in to an available USB port on your PC.
3. Turn the printer On.
4. Now you will get prompted with the "Found New Hardware" dialog box. Select "Install from list or specific location" and click Next.
5. Click Browse and select the location where you unzipped the files in step 1 and click OK.
6. Click Next. The USB driver will now install.
7. Now you will get another "Found New Hardware" dialog box for the USB Serial port. Select "Install from list or specific location" and click Next.
8. Click Browse and select the location where you unzipped the files in step #1 and click OK.
9. Click Next. The USB Serial driver will now install.
10. Now reboot your PC. The newly installed port may not show available until you reboot your PC one time.
The USB port is now successfully installed. In Windows the USB port will be assigned to a Com port. To find out what Com port number is assigned to it go to Device Manager and then Select Ports. You will see USB Serial Port (COMx). In addition, when using the Intermec InterDriver Windows print driver. The USB port will be shown as USB00x and the Description will be Virtual printer port for USB.
(You may need to set the printer as the default printer)
Other things to know about these printers: ( not from Intermec )
1) There are 2 types Direct and Thermal transfer. Direct I think heats up the label to get the writing on the ribbon. Thermal transfer uses a one time use ribbon to transfer images to the label.
2) You should use Intermec labels, if you otherwise the labels will probably not print properly
3) How to reset the printer. Turn off the printer, (in the back) then turn on the printer while holding down the Reset button on the top. Release the reset button when the light turns green then wait for the printing to stop. IMPORTANT: Next press the reset button for 1/2 second. If you hold it too long it will not reset the printer properly.
4) Every user will need to set the default label size.
5) If the print is coming out is hard to read do the following. Open the printer then remove the ribbon if there is one and scrape the metal with your fingernail. They give you alcohol and a cotton pad but your fingernail will work fine.
6) Another problem we have sometime is a label falls off and covers a sensor so the labels do not know when to stop. This hardly ever happens but look under the labels and check the sensor.

Mis align printout


hi, its hard to say but.... does it feed ok or skip labels??? if it skips labels, the sensor will need replacement or adjustment, also download the latest drivers, and if your driver or software gives u the option, play around with the magnification settings, also double check length, borders etc, try making the label length setting appear longer , shorter etc. Hope this is of help to you,M,

Clean the photo eye that senses the label gap with a q tip and alchol

Open side door release print head and remove label stock you will see small photo eye clean

put printer in manual mode( switch 1 on to and 1 on botom on

turn printer on it should advance one label and hit skip it should advance another

put back in computer mode

should work now if it still skips check yur label desigh=n software and label mode (continuous or sense label)


Best of luck to you
