Ok...two items to check:
1. slow print can be caused by using True-Type fonts like Arial, Times New Roman, etc...these fonts do not reside in the firmware of the printer so Bartender has to download the fonts to the printer's memory hence the long print time. Change any text fonts to Zebra's internal fonts which you should be able see as a choice from Bartender.

2. If the print is larger than you expect, then you are using a printer driver that is not correct for the dpi (dots per inch) of the printer than have. If your printer is a 203dpi printer but you use a 300dpi printer driver, then your print will be larger that you expect. Bartender will format the fields for 300dpi but because size is larger on a 203dpi, the print will be larger. The Z105SL comes in both sizes, 203 or 300. Just verify your printer to the driver being used.

Hope that helps !

We have a Zebra 105SL thermal printer. When I print to it with any application, the data light comes on, but it doesn't print. It has ribbon, media, calibrated, no error lights


The data light indicates that the printer is receiving data. Hold the cancel key for 10 seconds while powering on. This will print printer configuration. Use to troubleshoot. If the data or format is wrong it will not print as you send data. Make sure you are using the 105SL printer driver. To test the printer functionality you can go to www.teklynx.com and download a demo copy of labelveiw, select the 105SL printer and try to print a simple label. If you can print with labelveiw then it is not a printer problem. Double check your driver and label format.

Increasing Speed on Zebra 105sl


If you are refering to print speed, from the label format, press F5 to bring up the LABEL & SETUP PROPERTIES. Click on LABEL OPTIONS and print speed will be the first choice.

If you are refering to how fast data is sent to the printer, then that depends on the connection to the PC and whether you are using true-type fonts or not.

Hope that helps !

Zebra 105SL prints 90 degs to what's on the screen


Print out a Cancel Self Test label:
1. Turn the printer off
2. Press and hold the CANCEL button while you turn the printer on.

If the label that prints out looks normal, you have a config issue in either your printer driver or your label software's page setup.

Will print on sticker labels, but not on thick price ticket paper


If you are not using ribbon, the tickets are probably not Direct thermal. Try using a Ribbon and see if it works

Poor Quality Print on Zebra 105SL direct thermal


How many labels has the printer printed? Because it sounds to me like you just need to replace the print head.

They are around $400 from whomever your supplier is, and very easy to replace.

Zebra 105sl - printer does not print correct size


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.
