Zebra 105sl - printer does not print correct size

I have a label I am creating. I have set the label to print a 4 x 6 inch landscape label. When the label prints it shrinks it to prints appx. 3 1/4 x 2 1/8. I have mess with the setting, but have had no luck. I send the same document to abode and when it prints to a ricoh printer, it prints the correct size.

Can anyone help.

    When we print out 4 labels, the first two looks fine but everything after that is printing on separate pages.

This can happen if you have the wrong dpi setup. For instance the 105sl can be either 203dpi or 300dpi. If your printhead is 300dpi and the label you create is expecting 203dpi, then you will see shrunken label. Your situation doesn't exactly sound like this is the case but it may be worth checking.

Zebra 105sl - printer does not print correct size


This sounds like a mismatch between the printer settings in the print driver and the label settings in your label design software.
In the printer driver - printer preferences- set the physical label dimentions.
Also set the printing defaults to the same settings.
In you design program ensure your label size is the same as the printer driver and also you can set the print preferences in the same program, ensure they all match and hey presto it works. But if nt then contact www,lancerlabels.co.uk, they will talk you through the problem on the phone. They will not charge for the advice.

What are the specific steps to configure a Z6M printer to print in landscape as opposed to portrait?


Printing in landscape or portrait !
First of all you have to create a portrait page.
When using the label programme select he page and tick the landscape option.
When you print it will do the rotation.

Zebra TLP 2844 printing landscape instead of portrait.


To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps.
1. turn the power off
2. hold the feed button down
3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button.
4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button.
5. turn the power off.
6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.

Tally 6212 - Landscape Documents Printed Vertically


You do indeed have problem-- the printer is doing what you are telling it to do changing the print from Portrait to Landscape on a dot matrix printer has the same effect as that on a Laser printer, it rotates the print by 90 degrees.

The correct solution of to define a custom size of paper which is the same size as the paper you are printing on.
If you are using Windows 2000, XP, 2003 etc you can create a Custom Size paper in the following way;

  • Ensure you are logged in with administrtor rights
  • Open the Printers Folder
  • Go to the FILE DROP DOWN MENU
  • Select SERVER PROPERTIES
  • Ensure the FORMS tab is selected
  • Tick the CREATE FORM button
  • Enter a NAME for the form
  • Enter the dimensions (be careful of the units you are using --- best results use inches)
  • Do NOT set margins printable areas etc
  • Click on the SAVE button
One you have created the custom size form you should be able to select this by name in the printer driver properties and the software package you are using.

Sizing and Orientation problem on Zebra 140 Xill


As far as the size it sounds like it might not be using the right resolution these come in either 200 or 300 DPI. Make usre your DPI is set to the same as the printer. If the printer is 300 and the design shows 200 then it will print rather small on the label. Not sure about the other issue.

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

Consistantly Intermittent Connection Problems


If you've tried installing the latest drivers and the problem persists it sounds like you have a lemon. The printers have a 2 yr warranty, so I would contact the retailer you purchased from and replace the printer. If your labels are jamming. Try the compatible File Labels available at LabelValue.com. They have both the Dymo 30327 and Dymo 30277 labels in a compatible version.

Verify your LCD Display Print Width setting is set wider than your actual label width. The printer will only print to the width of the PRINT WIDTH setting. Also verify any driver or software settings as these override your printer settings.
