1. If your printhead doent have burn element no need to change and if your platen roller is uneven change it.
2. check the setting of your darkness both printer and the job data
3. check the quality of your ribbon and label if this is match. some cheap ribbon is poor on quality.

Why datamax M class 4208 only prints on one side of the label?


When printing on less than full width media, the printer has a printhead-leveling cam to adjust the right side of the printhead
for even pressure distribution. To adjust the leveling cam:
1. With media loaded in the printer, print a label (press the
FEED + CANCEL buttons simultaneously) and
examine it..
2. While observing the printed labels, loosen the
Thumbscrew and move it to the left most position. (see
Example 1, below).
3. Next, move the Thumbscrew to the right until the
printed labels contain a complete, even image (see
Example 2). Tighten the Thumbscrew.

We have several Datamax I-4208 printers and a few of the older I-4206 models. It would appear the replacement printheads are one in the same for both models be we cannot get either of our spares to work in...


Some changes were made on the I Class units and the new printheads do not work correctly in the discontinued 4206 models. You need part number DPO20-2262-01 for your I-4206.

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

4208 Datamax M Class printer Problems


Check inside the green guide (sensor) for pieces of label. That will block the sensor. If the sensor is reporting a thickness which is double (250) what you expect, then that is definitely the issue.
