SOURCE: Datamax problem

You probably need to adjust the leveling cam if you have not done so already. This is the green thumbscrew near the print mechanism.

SOURCE: Datamax I 4208 prints slow when set to landscape

try using a seagull sceintific driver.
also if you are sending graphics (barcode) instead of an actual barcode decoded font, the printer will process as a graphic.
If serial, speed up to max, if parallel it should print quite fast

SOURCE: Datamax I-4208 not printing allocated amount of labels

Try printing 200 at a time, anything over that and it will cause the printer to skip numbers or overheat. 200 (with a 10 second delay) at a time may take a while longer, but it its much better to start over due to number skipping or other errors. I can account to this since we do inventories and we are asked to print 50K+ labels, and any time we want to save time by printing more only causes us more problems.

SOURCE: Datamax M-4208 label printer is not printing. It

probably a bad or very dirty sensor - use compressed air to blow out the sensors (look in the user manual to locate the sensors)

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.

Label print too light


This could be caused by the darkness setting coming from the label software / printer driver. It's set too low and that setting will usually override the darkness setting in the printer. That's why test labels are fine.

Hope that helps.

Datamax I-4208 not printing allocated amount of labels


Eventually you HAVE to give the printer a break, during inventory times at work, we have to print 50K+ labels, and in order to prevent either serial number skipping or other issues, I print in 250 batches, yes; there is a time gap but it's better than to restart a series of prints because a few numbers were skipped. Try printing 200 and 200 sets to prevent errors or skips.
