Question about Seiko Smart Label 420 Thermal Printer

Open Question

Hello, We have a Seiko smart label printer 420 that has decided to no longer print. That is, when the labels are fed thru, they come out blank. As it is thermal print technology there is obviously no toner to change as with laser/injet printers. Can anyone shed light on what might be the problem when an SLP prints blank labels?

SOURCE: how do I export from outlook to my seiko 440 smart printer

I'm not familiar with this printer but usually you export details as a .csv file which you can import in to most other software packages. If you need more help, please can give more detail. Thanks :)

Microsft Word is probably not only the best but if not the only solution. Test print a label or two, at a time and then a sheet, at a time. Attempting to print muliple sheets from a file associated with a different, standard, printer may not line up well enough to print pages and pages, unattended.

What you see between these ---> < - > <---- Brackets are actions for you to perform.

You'll may wish to choose a Microsft Word Template, you can do that by opening Microsoft Word, <Help>, <Tempates> or (if you cannot find templates) via: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/ select a label from your file and pick the number from the list that corresponds with the label on the box of labels. Please forgive the ambiguity, I'm working blind without knowing your Operating System or your version of Word, what printer, etc... This is general enough for most systems.

Here's the order:

  1. Click <Tools>, <Letters and Mailings>, Click <Envelopes and Labels>.
  2. Click the <Labels> tab, and Click <Options>.
  3. First choose the printer you want to use and next the label supplier number from the box sheets that you'll print your labels on.
  4. Click <Product Number>, scroll to the corresponding number from the label box. click Ok
  5. Click <Envelopes and Labels>, Click <New Document> and a label document will open.
  6. Type data onto the labels you choose to use, Avery number work well with Word .
  7. Click <File>, Click <Print>.
Now, you could try to make a copy of your label list, to experiment with, but it's probably best that you re-type the labels into each of the boxes while reading from your label program; until your PC is returned

These printers are designed to use only the labels with the ink bar on the back. the ink bar is the guide that tells how much to print.

What in the world!! I have the Smart Label Printer 450, it is not advancing the label, and the power button is flashing. It will not print a label at all at this point, and when it will end up printing a...


Unfortunately, this is usually an indication that the label roll in the printer are too old. This action is by design, compatible labels should have a black rectangle on the reverse side and the Smart Label printer uses the black rectangle to orient the label. This means your Smart Label doesn't think its wasting labels, it's just trying to run through what it considers to be unsuitable labels as fast as it can. If you're only printing one label at a time you can recover some labels by correctly the label's line up after each label you print but there's nothing you can do so that your printer will properly advance its current labels.

Remove the current roll, open a new boxed label roll, remove a sealed roll, cut open the sealed plastic, remove fresh label roll and load it in your Label Printer. Power the label printer back on and press the label advance button, it should correctly line up.

I get an error 6 when I try to install my 240 to windows 8..1. What to do? I have been able to download a driver, but not the program to be installed.


I think you're out of luck. The latest driver I could find is 6.9.0.385, you can find it at the site below:
Smart Label Printer 200 420 overview Smart Label Printer 200 420 overview
This is a third party site, Seiko has removed all legacy support from their site. It was really only written for Windows Vista but people found it would work for Windows 7. Given the major structural changes in Windows 8.1 I don't think the legacy software will run in a Windows 8.1 environment

Smart label 200 windows 7 driver


The official Seiko site is:
Software Driver Downloads
However, Seiko has deleted its legacy printer support so you will have to find your drivers on a third party site. I've included links to your drivers below:
Seiko SLP 420 Free Driver Download

SIISLP200 Drivers Download for Windows 7 8 XP Vista

Note: With Seiko Smart Label printers make sure your printer is not connected to your computer until the Seiko software tells you to.

Important tips when finding and downloading application/ driver software from non-OEM sites

1. Never install any application from a non-OEM site that says it will scan your computer to determine what files you need. - search using the manufacturer name, model number, and current operating system on the computer you want to install the device on.

2. Only install the files you found. Never download any software suggested.

3. When installing the downloaded files, always select Custom Installation to make sure you only install the software you need. In this case only the application and driver files, nothing else ( no driver updating, security scanning, toolbar, etc. programs).

The code between the labels indicates either you are using labels designed for another model or that it is thinking it has a shippinhg label opr some lareger type installed. IT is more likely to be the first option, you are usinjg the wrong coded labels
