Question about Datamax I-4208 Thermal Label Printer
There are three reasons related to this error; Lamp flashing Red,
1. This happens when the media roll/label roll or the handle tip is bent or folded down, Please check the label roll once again and make sure it's not the problem.
2. When the temperature of the Printer is too high, the lamp will keep flashing red. But in your case, I don't suspect this. As a precaution, i just included this. This can be fixed after the printer is shut down and left for few minutes, so that the system is cooled.
3. When Print head isn't installed correctly or positioned properly. Reinstalling the print head will fix this issue.
Please try No.1 since this started after you changed the label roll, and try no.2 and no.3 if it doesn't help.
Thanks for using FixYa.
