How can i send an ascii file to a network shared Datamax Prodigy Plus printer? It is not printing via send file, windows driver send command to printer works. Thanks for any help!


copy file.txt lpt1 is the command to copy the txt file to the printer, but it must be correctly formatted for the Datamax. I don't know Datamax's programming language, but at first glance that file looks like ZPL to me. If it is ZPL the Datamax can't print it.

We removed a stuck on label, now the printer won't print half the thermal label


I haven't seen one of these for years. However I really need more detail. In what direction is the print missing? across or down the label?

If across it most likely a dirty printhead

If down the label it could be a portion of label still stuck to the sensor.

Can you describe where the label stuck?

When printing large quantities the printer skips


Itello: This happened in this cases:
label sensor is dirty or uncalibrated
label or tag is out of position
Execute a label quick calibration pressing and hold FEED button by 5 - 7 seconds and release. Also clean the label sensor.

It is the media sensor. Try adjusting and check for stuck labels in it blocking the sensor.

Do you have Zebra emulation firmware installed? If not, your printer will not understand the command language that you are sending to it. Datamax has its own language and you will need a branch in your code to support that if the printer does not work with ZPL.
