Question about Datamax M-Class Thermal Printer
I would like to print roll-format labels without label gaps or label marks, with a very high degree of accuracy. The print goes onto spaces on a pre-printed label. Please help - we need to get the job done!

You need to calibrate the printer using the instructions located in the
manual. This should be in area 5.2 of the manual. If you don't have the
manual you can download them at this address along with software
updates and firmware updates.
Label printers are always finicky. I have strtix printers where I work and they give off wacky errors too.

This error appears when the printer has worked for more than 1 hours continuous, and to protect the printer. Wait a few minutes for printer to cool and continue with your printing.

You probably didn't damage it, it sounds like you may have knocked loose the thermal printing portion (which is the most important part). There is no easy way for you to repair this but Dymo will usually do it for free under warranty. Their phone number is:

GAP NOT DETECTED error in display.
Dirty media sensors, wrong label length
Clean the upper and lower media sensors by spraying them with dry air. This should bedone every time the media (label stock) is changed.
Before running the Auto-Calibrate operation, check the QUICK SETUP or MEDIA CONTROL menu for the 'Label Length' parameter. It should be set to the length of the label, not counting the gap.
Check that the sensor type has been set in CALIBRATE CTRL menu to match the media and ribbon.
"Gap" Select when using media with a liner space between die-cut labels or when using tag stock with notches or holes as label length indicators.
"Mark" Select when using media that has horizontal black marks located on the underside of the label liner or tag stock.
"Advanced Gap" Select when media is gapped but also has a dark background.
This sensor arrangement looks through the ribbon, and will not work if ribbon is too dark.
"Advanced Notch" Select when media has a notch that is placed in a dark line on the back of the stock.
Check the position of the media sensor. It should pass through the center of gaps or marks or notches, but not through pre-printed areas if possible.
Run Auto-Calibrate in CALIBRATE CTRL menu, which sets Gap and Paper Out Thresholds
