If you are using serial port (COM1), problably your cable doesn't have flow control. You need a cable that use RTS,CTS and DSR. If you are using paralell port, make a change to serial port.

I have to reset my datamax i4208 every time I print. I cannot do more than one print job at a time. Help.

I need more information. What system are you using to drive the printer with? If it is a Windows computer it is almost certain to be a faulty/outdated driver.

Excel file is sent but wont print

Try printing a self test from the printer. If that works try a self test from the printer driver. That should help narrow it down to a PC, printer, or software issue.

How do I stop printer from skipping every other label while printing

It sounds like the label length is incorrectly specified either in your software or printers parameter settings - when this happens the printers label sensor is aware that it has over-run a label & automatically proceeds to the next gap / label start.

Depending on the software you are using, it's also possible that a label field extends beyond the boundary of the label (this could be empty space & not necessarily have any content).

Also check that the sensor (usually behind the head) hasn't been adjusted by mistake.

If all else fails, check that you label stock has consistent, readable gaps, you can check the output of the label sensor via the printer menu while manually pulling labels through.

Hi! I have a problem with my office Datamax E class printer. When i change tickets in the printer it doesn't print them the right size - normally they are too short. Do you have any idea how to solve...

If you are changing length(feed length) you may have to recalibrate the printer . Also ensure that your print format is the correct length for the stock.
You can look at the setup of the printer using the datamax-oneil printer configutation program, or if it is using IP connection, you can go directly to the internal web page for set up. make the cal length 3 times the label length, or leave at the default value.

Running two Zebra's through Easylabel Platinum

When connecting Easylabel to a Zebra through the RS232 port, it's very important that the serial settings match between Easylabel and the printer. Easylabel defaults to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, none parity. The Zebra defaults to 9600 baud, 7 data bits, and even parity. This mismatch causes the data light to flash but no print.

Change the printer setting to 8 data bits and none for parity and the baud rate can be whatever but make sure they match from Easylabel to the printer.

Hope that helps !

Datamax I 4208 prints slow when set to landscape

try using a seagull sceintific driver.
also if you are sending graphics (barcode) instead of an actual barcode decoded font, the printer will process as a graphic.
If serial, speed up to max, if parallel it should print quite fast
