Routine maintenance and keeping full ink tanks will prevent this problem, however if you have the problem you can resolve it by doing the following:
1. Clean your print head using denatured alcohol solvent which can be purchased from most hardware stores. If unavailable, use 91% Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol (first aid antiseptic) which is available for less than a dollar at most Walmart pharmacy departments.

*Warning: You may want to use a pair of latex exam gloves as this is a messy process and can stain your fingers.
Time necessary 45-50 minutes
Supplies needed:
Isopropyl Alcohol or denatured alcohol
paper towels
latex gloves
sink, bowls and or basin
can of compressed air
very small screw driver
tablespoon or baby bulb type syringe
warm water

PROCEDURE:
1. Lift print head from printer. It pulls out easily because it is held in with the same down lever that holds the cartridge in place.
2. Put two layers of paper towels in the bottom of a dish to protect sensitive sprayer heads.
3.Put enough solvent in dish to cover the screens on which the cartridges sit when in use.
4. Take the two small screws out that hold the white ceramic piece
5. Gently, pry the ceramic piece back and away , to reveal the underside (No need to pull away the glued points on the sides.)
6. Gently, move head up and down to slosh solvent around it the best as you can. Use a table spoon or syringe to pour solvent over all orifices in the print head, turning it upside down and then back a few times.
7. Use canned air with a plastic straw to blow into and through all orifices, alternately sloshing/swishing and pouring solvent over head (be careful not to touch any of the holes, screens, or sprayer heads with anything)
8. Empty dirty solvent from bowl and replace with paper towels and clean solvent. Soak for approx 10 minutes. Rinse again with clean solvent poured directly on all parts, letting solvent overrun and fall into dish or basin.
9. Gently shake the solvent off the head, take it outside and spray with compressed air into all orifices to clear out and help evaporate any remaining solvent. Let sit on a clean paper towel for approx 20 minutes. (There may be a little ink bleeding out of the head, but once it dries completely it does not present any problems.
10. Reinstall head, cartridges and it will print like a new printer.

SUGGESTION: For many years of problem free printing, keep a double set of ink cartridges, one set full at all times. Whenever a cartridge runs out of ink, replace it IMMEDIATELY, with a new one or a refilled one. This gives the print head no chance to dry out and create clogged heads. Routine maintenance of cleaning the heads every 24 months does wonders for keeping your printer in new condition.

Hope this helps. .

If I have a multi-row s/s that has multiple pages, how do I get the row title for columns to appear on each page?


Hi, I believe you're asking about 'freezing panes'...

In Microsoft Excel 2007:
  1. Select the place on the spreadsheet where you want the row titles to appear
  2. Click on the View tab
  3. Click on Freeze Panes button
  4. Select Freeze Panes
Or, you could be asking about defining print rows to appear at the top of each page:

  1. Select the Page Layout tab
  2. Click Print Titles
  3. Enter the Rows to Repeat at Top (e.g., 1:3 for the first 3 rows)
Hope that helps!

The Zebra 105sl is not printing fluently. By that I mean it will print two rows of labels, then stop for two rows, then print two rows again. My question is how do I get it to print continuessly without...


1st try to calibrate the machine. It might not like the media (labels) you have in it. Try the basic calibration by going through the menu and print the sensor profile. If that doesn't work, try the media and ribbon calibration option.

THE FIRST TWO LINES OF A PRINTED DOCUMENT ARE PRINTING DOUBLE.


If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX3200 is turned on and not printing, and the Error light is off. Load plain, letter-size paper in the sheet feeder. Press a Menu button until you see Head Alignment, then press the Color Copy button to print an alignment page. On the test page, select the pattern with the two vertical lines most precisely printed on top of each other. You may need to use a magnifying glass or loupe. maint.6.7.1.jpg Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, and 3. (In this example, pattern 8 is the best in each row.) Press the + or - button to select the number of the best pattern for the first row, then press the Color Copy button. Repeat this step for the second and third rows. Note: If you select a pattern other than 8 in any row, that pattern becomes pattern #8 the next time you align the print head. When you’re finished, press the Stop button.

I need to print mailing labels imported from excel to word in columnar order instead of in order by rows across the page.


hi Samajane,

I understand the you excel file has data that is stored column wise. Well you can first convert the column wise data to row wise data and then import it to you word.

To convert the column wise data to row wise data.
1.Select the data in your worksheet.
2.Right Click -> Copy
3.Create a blank worksheet.
4.Goto Edit - > Paste Special
5.Check the Transponse Option
6.Press OK.

Now you have converted your column wise data to row wise data and now u can import it to your word and print mailing labels

How excel determine number of rows fit on every page?


If you would like to print X number of rows on a page, all you have to do is:

Go to "view" and click "page layout." This will show you what your cell look like on the printed page.

Alternatively:
- select the cells you want to print by clicking and dragging over them to highlight
- go to "File" or office icon, and click print.
- under "print what" click "selection"
- then go to "preview"
- this will show you what it looks like and you can determine how many of your size row will fit onto the page
