Hello,

The Datamax I-4208 returns a position fault error if it cannot sense the label gap where its supposed to be, or if the sensor returns a value outside the permitted range. Re-calibrate to correct the error.

Take care.

    Hello,

    If you use ms-access you must have installed the windows driver,
    therefore you must enable the cutter in the printer properties.
    Position fault is that it does not detect the label, must be press the
    FEED key or to calibrate, press the FEED key for 5 seconds to calibrate
    the sensor label.
    You can also check the user manual for more information as regards this.

    Take care.

Datamax M 4208 Printer - Barcode is missing when we print the label and we also get 10 extra blank labels with it. Please help me with a solution


Sometimes it's simply the Internet Browser settings. Go to File, then Page Setup and change the margins to 0.1 and all footers and headers to Blank or Empty.

The printer is datamax I 4208 give me an error top of form fault


Try moving the sliding green media guide out from the wall about 1/4 to 1/2 inch, until the white line is under the label path. This green piece holds the label sensor, which needs to be under the labels so it can sense the gap between labels (or the black mark on the bottom side of the backing, if there is no gap). Also, on the printer menu you must choose whether your stock has a gap (aka web) or black mark (aka reflective).

Top of Form Fault error


It means that the printer did not get a good calibration on the label. First make sure the label sensor is in the proper position. Look at the green bar that the label passes underneath and make sure that the white line (the sensor) is positioned over the label. Then calibrate by pressing and holding the FEED key for about 5 seconds until the labels start to feed. After a few labels feed out, the printer should now have a good read on the size of the label and be ready to go.

Hope that Helps !

When the roll of black thermal material is used up, how do you get it off the finished roll? Is there a way to reverse the direction of the feed? How is that done?


grab the roll and at the same time, squeeze and pull toward you. The take-up spindle will collapse slightly and the used ribbon will come right off.

Hope that helps !

The head printer only work about 2 weeks and after that it fails. So I have to change it. Help me please. Thanks.


To try to prevent scratches that ruin your thermal printhead, prevent dust from settling on the labels by covering the printer if dust is present, and storing label rolls in a cabinet or box or bag.

Paper jam error message


This problem is a detection problem, due to a bad sensor selection or incorrect label size.

If the labels are white labels with a separation between each, select TRANSMISSIVE. If the labels are preprinted, select the TRANSMISSIVE PREPRINTED LABELS and set the threshold doing this.

With the printer in ONLINE, press PAUSE once, the message PAUSE appears in the display, press and hold on the PAUSE key, TRANSMISSIVE is displayed, release the key and press PAUSE until labels starts to feed, let feed some labels (5 or 6) and release the key. Press Restart and start to print.

Print alignment problem. Prints across 2 lables. not sensing the black line on back of label roll.


As it turns out, a good cleaning took care of the problem. I suspect the sensor bar was dirty so it could not detect the black line on the back of the labels for alignment.

Thanks anyway!
