I downloaded and installed the Monarch 9855 drivers from Nicelabel on Windows XP desktop. I configured a TCP/IP port based on the printer's IP address. I then created in Notepad the format and data file which I sent to the printer. The label got printed with the raw data, no formatting. No errors on the printer. Is there some config missing ? Thanks

Re: raw data printed, no formatting
If you create the data file in notepad, you're doing one step too many.
If I print the word HELLO in Notepad or Word, and then send it through the ncielabel drivers, you should get a label with the word Hello.
If I create the datastream with the printer's native language, you'll get all of the raw data because the driver is trying to print exactly what is on your notepad or Word page.
If you want to send raw data to the printer, you do not need to use a driver. Send the data to the IP Address or the Com port in question.
Avery Dennison, the folks that own Monarch/Paxar, have a utility that will allow you to send your notepad file either tcp/ip or through a com port. Go to: http://www.monarch.averydennison.com/support/servdocuments/Software/Toolbox/TBX1D.exe

I had this problem of the printer reportings "Corrupted Data" on a Samsung CLP-300 and a Samsung MPL-1910 printer and found a software setting that resolves the issue. I only found this issue on Windows 8.1 but I'm not sure it's Windows OS related. I just hadn't had this problem on Windows 7, Vista or XP. My printers are all on my home network connected to print servers so use TCP/IP ports on the laptop.
Go to the Printer Properties menu and select the "Ports" tab (3rd from the left near the top of the menu box.
Select "Configure Ports..." within this tab
If you have "RAW" selected then select LPR.
I added a Queue Name to match the Print server but I'm not sure if this is required
Then click OK and then you'll be returned to the Printer Properties Menu box.
Select the "General" tab on the extreme left of the tabs and click on "Print Test Page"
If you get a "WIndows Printer Test Page" out then this has resolved your problem.
I notice that it still reports on the Test Page that the format is RAW but now it works fine.
If the printer display just shows Ready, but doesn't print, there could be a few things wrong.
1 - no data is going to the printer 2 - data is going to the printer, but it is not the printer's native language 3 - cable connectivity issues 4 - wrong cable is being used 5 - if wireless, data is not going to the correct IP
If using a 3rd party application, make sure that you've chosen the correct Monarch printer, as well as printing to the correct port. Sometime people print to LPT instead of Serial, as an example.
If using 3rd party drivers, make sure of the same thing.
To see if the printer actually works, press both of the arrows on the display, at the same time, after the printer is at the ready screen. As long as have the printer configured correctly (ribbon, supply type, etc.), the printer should print out a couple of labels.
Perform an internal diagnostics test print. I believe you can press both of the arrow buttons at the same time, and it should print out what's in the printer and how its configured. There you should find the firmware version.
We have multiple 7820s in our office. This would be a configuration problem with your windows XP computer. From the XP computer, open a command prompt and type "ping x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the 7820n. Make sure you get four successes. I would then uninstall the brother software and drivers and go to "printers and faxes" in the control panel and manually add the printer.
To manually add a network printer, with it's own print server, on Win XP:
1 Click "Add Printer"
2 Select "Local Printer Attached to this computer"
3 Deselect "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer" then click "Next"
4. Click "Create a new port" and select "Standard TCP/IP" from the drop down. Click "Next". this will open TCP/IP Wizard
5. Type in Printer IP Address next to IP Address (Port name will autopopulate) and click "Next"
6. If wizard finds printer, it will show you "Finish" button. If you get a "Additional Port Information Required" window, something is wrong with your printer or windows xp network configuration.
7. When the TCP Wizard window closes, it will take you back to Add Printer Wizard. Select "Have Disk" and navigate to the \USA\WXP\Addprt directory on your Brother Drivers disc.
8. Select brxpadd.inf and click "Open" then click "OK"
9. Select "Brother MFC 7820 N Printer" from the list and click "Next"
10. Select name of printer, whether you want a default, print test page and DONE!
1. Set up your print server with an IP address. 2. Ping your printer IP address. 3. If successful, Add printer wizard. Create a new port, Make it TCP/IP port. Put the IP address in the IP address field. Click next and Use Generic 9XXX Raw. 4. Install the driver provided by the manufacturer for your printer and assign it to the Network port. 5. Print.
