    printer is not printing. the feed button brings out the paper but there is no print-out. i am not using any ribbon.



1 Answer

Your ribbon is not firm enough - roll the ribbon at the top until it is firm. If it is too loose it will stick to the paper. Follow directions to ensure that ribbon is installed properly.

Where do i buy ARGOX GE-200 PLUS

Argox launched Ethernet industrial label printer
Adopted Ethernet management makes industrial printer strengthened
Argox adopted Ethernet into industrial printer series and launched X-2300E(203dpi) for regular resolution printing and X-3200E(300dpi) for high-resolution printing to meet different demands. Both X-2300E and X-3200E are equipped with enlarged memory - 8MB Flash Memory/16MB DRAM- leading ahead of competitors. The built-in RTC(real-time clock) is also an advantage to work alone with the printer to print time/date on the label without a PC.
X-2300E/X-3200E provides PPLA/PPLB/PPLZ(X-2300ZE, X-3200ZE) emulations for all application. And the auto calibration function supports 4 modes of setup provides flexibility for the users to choose the most convenient mode for different printing applications to ensure accurate label detection.
To satisfy the requirements of industrial printer application like wide area between operation systems in network and large number of equipment, utilizing Ethernet to deliver printing tasks is a more economical choice for enterprises. X-2300E/X-3200E installed Ethernet server to provide the interface of Ethernet data transfer and by using SNMP setup to deliver the error massage back to managing server to simplify the procedure and enhance efficiency.
X-2300E/X-3200E supports Windows 7 system and 1D barcode, 2D barcode, QRcode and etc. It's suitable for the production line of manufacture including safety labels, patent labels, and?parts-name stickers, and fit for the application of shelf-label printing management, storage, delivery, shipping, transportation, luggage labels and wash care labels for clothing.

To be able to do that you need to use a cups driver.
try a driver for datamax or for Zebra if you have the pplz option
Else you'll have to write one.

Argox 214 not compatible with vista

Thermal printers seem to be notorious for that.

Try using Vista's "Generic/Text" printer driver (you'll need to go into device manager, select to update the drivers, go to Have Disk, select "generic" as the brand). That will send raw text to the printer. Many thermal printers support this.

After you do that, you will also need to go into your printer settings and setup a custom page size that matches the size of your labels. Then you should be good to go.

X2000+: no thermal transfer options and Argobar Pro issues


I don't have an Arox printer or Argobar, but I've seen similar messages from other programs.

First, I'd open a file in Argobar and make sure that another printer has not been selected. If the printer name has changed since the file was saved, the program probably selected your default printer, with far different attributes (higher resolution, different fonts, no thermal options).

Also check the printers properties (probably under an "advanced" option) to make sure the driver is installed for the correct model. If your printer supports label sensing other than "Media with Gap", the driver should show other settings. If a label is fed consistantly to the same spot when you Form Feed, then your sensor is working. It might take two From Feeds - one to advance the leading eadge to the printhead and one to advance the trailing edge to the tear bar.

If you just installed XP SP3, you might need to re-install the driver. You can download from Argox, but I prefer Seagull drivers, at . There are several +2000 models listed. These work with XP SP3. You should be able to set many attributes in the Proerties and Preferences.

Occasionally, one or two files may be saved incorrectly and become corrupted (but never ALL files). In these cases, it easier to start a new file, with the proper label size, and copy & paste (if your software lets you) from the old to the new. Once I get files working well, I always copy them to a another folder.

By the way, if you have already printed with Direct Thermal settings, but had a ribbon loaded, the print head has not been damaged. Direct Thermal should turn off the warning when the ribbon sensor doesn't find a ribbon, and probably changes some of the heat attributes to optimize for ribbonless printing, so the quality with a ribbon is decreased.

The printhead can be gently cleaned occasionally with 70% Isopropal Alchohol on a Qtip, but never touch the printhead with a hard object. One tap with a metal object while the printer is on would probably destroy that part of the printhead.

I hope this helps!
God bless,
Label Guy
