    there is no print on the left, it has all shifted to the right and cuts off. This is not a pressure problem, the verbiage has just shifted right, half way across label

So the left side is blank ? Usually caused by an imbalance across the printhead. Check the toggle pressure on the left side. Each toggle has a dial on top for adjusting the down pressure. Probably less pressure on the left than the right. Quick test would be to use your finger to put some down pressure on the left side of the printhead while printing. If the print is there, you have your answer. If still no printing, then something else is happening.

Hope that helps !

    interesting....Ok..there is a setting in the printer called LEFT POSITION. If a valued is entered there, all print will move to the right by that amount. It's basically a "left margin" command like in MS Word. The value can be set in the printer or it can come from the printer driver. That would be the next place to check then.

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.

Printing on two labels


lets start with the basics.
Do a calibration of the label to the printer : -
1/ Turn off the power
2/Press and hold the feed key
3/ Turn on power and wait for the green feed light to flash twice.
4/ Release the feed key
5/ The printer should feed and print the configuration.
Now press the feed key and the label should feed and stop at the gap.
If this does not work , then let me know via this page.or contact me at the link below

I am getting uneven print in the middle of my labels, could this be uneven heat distribution ?


Hi,
The energy across the printhead will always be the same. Uneven print is usually caused by uneven pressure along the printhead, usually showing up on the left or right side. It's strange the you're seeing it in the middle. Do you have multiple label sizes ? If so, does it happen only with one size ? A label stuck on the platen roller can cause issues too...maybe check for that.

Hope this helps or a least provides some ideas...

When Printing labels the printer starts to soon and bottom lables are cut in half?


After you press print the window pops up with printing preferences, select preferences and tell the printer you are printing labels, it will allow more time for the label to reach the start position and start at the right place on the label sheet.

Ptouch 1100QL waste of tape issue


It isn't actually "before the actual letter comes out," as you said, but rather after. You have probably noticed that you must do a "feed" first or the cut won't clear the end of the label and you have to do it again. This just reflects the distance between the print head and the cutting bar.
There's no way to avoid this if you must have the one label you just printed right away and you don't have any more labels to make at the moment.
However, if you have several labels to make, you can economize by printing them one right after the other (without any "feeds" or cuts), then once you're all done, do a "feed" and cut. The labels will be close together, with little waste except at the ends, and you can cut them apart with a scissors.

The info on the labels is getting cut off


Try going into printers and faxes and right click on the label printer and going to properties.

There should be a tab in there for size for you to specify the size of the labels or to manually type in the correct size.

Printed Tape Cuts Off Letters


I was having the ame issue. Found the solution on the user manual (posted online). Press Function, scroll to "Margin", press "Function", use arrows to select "#" or "##", then press Function again. Now it should print with a margin, thus not cutting off your letters. Mine was set to "-", which is basically no margin.
