You can adjust the display contrast by pressing and holding the MENU key for 10 to 20 seconds to modify the LCD contrast level.

Dmx i4308 skipping every other label


emelish: If is constant the print label and skip label, you have adjust the label size in your software. If the label skip is not constant, then clean the label sensor, position it in better place and perform a quick calibration pressing and hold FEED button by 5-6 seconds and release it. Maybe you can do it once more time. Roberto Martinez

My Kodak esp 3200 won't print labels on Avery label pages. WILL print the labels on regular copy paper. Any suggestions on what to do?


I am having the same problem except you didn't address the problem. It's not that the printer prints badly, jams or crashes. The printer literally passes the label paper through the printer and then prints on the next piece of copy paper. I reset my printer not to print the last page first and it still did it. Then I put the label paper second in the feeder. It passed through the first piece of copy paper and the
labels and printed on the third. It's like the printer senses the thicker paper and skips it. My printer is a Kodak ESP C315 and I have no setting for thick paper only plain and photopapers.

Not printing all labels


Do a calibration, this should fix the issue. Also make sure that the label stopper (silver peg on label holder) is pressed firmly against the labels. This will stop the labels from sliding around during a print, throwing off the calibration. Also check to make sure the sensors are free of any dust.

Datamax I-4208 not printing allocated amount of labels


Eventually you HAVE to give the printer a break, during inventory times at work, we have to print 50K+ labels, and in order to prevent either serial number skipping or other issues, I print in 250 batches, yes; there is a time gap but it's better than to restart a series of prints because a few numbers were skipped. Try printing 200 and 200 sets to prevent errors or skips.

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,

I get 2 labels(1 with data and 1 blank)for every label printed


THE LABEL SENSOR IS NOT SENSING THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT LABEL

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

Printing every third labels ---> not evry


You need to take the labels out.

If you are using the labels that have perforations is where you can tear them off.

What you need to do is to

1) Switch off printer
2) ensure that the ribbon is loaded correctly
3) take some labels, feed them through the mechanism till you can see them coming out from the other end.
4) Make sure that the labels are lined up with the alignment mark or sometimes with label printers there is a light.
5)switch on printer and do a test print
