It is the media sensor. Try adjusting and check for stuck labels in it blocking the sensor.

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.

Hi, I have DataMax ST3210, while printing it is instering a blank page randomly. Please advise


Check that your format is centered top and bottom on the stock, and that you have at least 1/8" quiet area top and bottom.
If you are printing on stock with an eye-mark, ensure that your print does not interfere with the area at the eye-mark. The printer will try to print the format, but if the eye-mark is in the way, even if the format is printed completely, will feed a blank label.
The also applys to standard die cut labels. with standard 1/8 die cut between labels

We use the Datamax Printer to print labels with labelview. The printer itself however keeps saying :position fault" how do I fix that?


Position fault or Out of stock when the printer is loaded with paper stock can usually be solved by calibrating the printer.

Press & hold the FEED button. Let the printer cycle 8-10 times. Should feed to the right position and say Calibration Complete in the window.

Hope this solves your problem.

Top of form fault


Top of form fault - I assume you hit "Feed" button and still got the form fault... if so:
1. check paper sensor position, sometimes just 1/8" one way or the other will make a difference.
2. calibrate the printer to the stock you have loaded - calibration is EASY, just press and hold the feed button until the printer cycles 8-10 times. Let go, should say "Calibration Complete". Hit "Feed" again to see if your top of form fault is fixed.

Problem with printing labels - not aligned, some missing


This is due to print server problem, you should change the options on the driver.

Datamax M-4206 - error light whenever load or print labels


Perhaps the sensor is out of position, you must move to the left. Also check that the hole senser is not blocked. Also verified that the sensor type (gap or black mark) in the software is correct.

Won't print labels


Ended up being the heating settings - they were to low, so when I hit print...it would spit out a label but nothing would be on it.

Problem solved!
