Question about Zebra 105Se Thermal Printer

2 Answers

No response from 105Se

I've inherited a Zebra 105se and am having problems setting it up. The printer is connected to the parallel port. The dip switches are set to disable override. Calibration and print of configuration works fine - but I can't get it to print a test page (or any other label). The data light comes on briefly and nothing happens.
Is there anything I can do to test if the printer is working?

The 105SE was manufactured in either serial or parallel interface configurations. Settings for a serial version are irrelevant for a parallel port unit and vice versa.

1. Verify parallel port and cable are working (test with a different parallel port printer using the correct driver for that printer.

2. Verify you have the correct Zebra driver installed for the 105SE.

Place the printer into Mode key Self Test and verify data received is ZPL II.

If the data light comes on and nothing prints chances are that the serial settings are set improperly. all of my printers are 25 pin serial, not parallel. i don't have one in front of me but i believe the settings are 19200, 8, 1, none. hope this helps.

My Zebra 105Se printer keeps printing blank labels


There are several reasons why this could be happening. If the computer accessing the printer changed then I assume the new computer was recently set up with software to send print information to the printer. I would start with simple calibration and move from there. Zebra Technologies 105SL Printer Calibrating the Printer With Video

My zebra 105Se keeps printing blank labels.


Do the labels come out right when you print locally? That is the first thing to see. Serial devices over a network are tricky. Baud rate and what to do with CR LF, stop bits, parity etc. need to be right.

Make sure the serial dip switch settings match your com port on the computer. You need a null modem cable or adapter.

All fonts are controlled by software. You cannot change them throught the front panel.

We are trying to set up to run locally on a serial port


The serial port parameters are set from the front panel.

Hit the "Setup" button, then hit the "Next" button (many times) until you reach the Serial Port parameters. You'll be prompted for a password before you get there. The default is "1234", entered with the "Plus and Minus" buttons.

Use the "Plus" and "Minus" button to make changes.

When finished, use the "Exit" button. Select "Permanent" changes and hit the "Save" button.
