How can i send an ascii file to a network shared Datamax Prodigy Plus printer? It is not printing via send file, windows driver send command to printer works. Thanks for any help!


copy file.txt lpt1 is the command to copy the txt file to the printer, but it must be correctly formatted for the Datamax. I don't know Datamax's programming language, but at first glance that file looks like ZPL to me. If it is ZPL the Datamax can't print it.

We removed a stuck on label, now the printer won't print half the thermal label


I haven't seen one of these for years. However I really need more detail. In what direction is the print missing? across or down the label?

If across it most likely a dirty printhead

If down the label it could be a portion of label still stuck to the sensor.

Can you describe where the label stuck?

Ido not have any problem if I print label using Zebra. I wrote codes on Visual Basic 6 to print label using Datamax printer conneccted parallel port with command L to start. The printer printed the text...


Do you have Zebra emulation firmware installed? If not, your printer will not understand the command language that you are sending to it. Datamax has its own language and you will need a branch in your code to support that if the printer does not work with ZPL.

Allegro2 Print Too Slow (25 seconds send from Windows XP)


miaharoon: Printing via Windows driver it's too long time because the driver sent a lot data to printer. Also the print speed via serial port it's slow. Inside driver, install Datamax printer fonts and barcode fonts to use it in Windows programs.
