THe zebra must be set up with the correct label size and teh software that creates the lable must contain the formatting information. The Zebra website contains both the user and programming manuals that completely describe this process. At this stage, the user manual will be the most helpful so you can verify the printer settings. From your description, I would suspect that the label size the printer is expecting is different than the actual label.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Try to reset the default values, to do this enter the menu. Exit the menu and when it say's Permanent, use the arrow keys to cycle around until it says load defaults and accept that. It will load the defaults and fix the problems you have

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.

My TEC SX4 has decided to do a wrap and my x-axis is offset from 0. how do i correct this problem?


The Wrap is due to the message being too long.
Inrease the width of the label. The 0,0 reference is relative to the paper width. To chage the X axis goto parameter set or adjust set depending on firmware. (X offset)

When I print my labels, there are lines that run through it


The lines(voids) are being caused by elements that are worn off the printhead. No energy is getting there to release the ribbon, causing a void area. To see the full extent, just create a label, using your widest label, that prints a thick black line. You will easily see the "void" areas as white lines.

This is common over time due to the constant contact with the ribbon. The elements wear down just like the tires on a car from the constant contact with the road.

The only way to correct is to install a new printhead.

My 3'' by 1'' label now prints in the middle to the right and cuts of info.


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 !

I want to adjust the printing coz its prinnting on left side my barcode label size is from the right side is having more space


Not too sure what you mean here. If the print on the left side is Ok and faded on the right side, then the position of the printhead pressure toggle may need to be adjusted. Make sure it is positioned over the center of your label.

Hope that helps !

Media problem during printing


If the media is coimng out straight, then look at the cutter mounting.
If the cutter is slightly off angle then it can be corrected on the mounting beneath the right lower side, and the lft upper (head latch) side.

Try printing a barcode or straight line of print on the top and bottom of the label. Look at the print in relation to the cut.

If it is off , it may also be the printhead azimuth.(angle of the head in relation to the platen roller(roller beneath the head).
There is an adjustment fo tthe head to suare it up to the platen.

Out of paper error in Zebra 110XiIII plus


There is a small thumb screw under the paper guide that has an adjustable stop to hold the paper. If you load it correctly, you should have one on each side to guide the paper into the printer. Also, the machine has either a roller or a bar to hang the labels on, correct? The bar has an adjustable stop to keep the roll from moving around while you print. You may want to setup the media sensor about 1 cm from the left of the printer to make it less subject to this type of error. They come from the factory very close to the edge of the paper to allow for some card printers to work well out of the box. Most people use labels and this is not necessary. I hope I have given you some helpful information.
