Question about Zebra 105SL Thermal Label Printer
When the printer sits unnused for a period of time (12 + hours) the 1st label out has a white line running through the bar code approximately 1/2 in from the label bottom. Then next label also has the line though much more faint. Thereafter, as long as the printer runs, the printing is fine.
This can happen if you have the wrong dpi setup. For instance the 105sl can be either 203dpi or 300dpi. If your printhead is 300dpi and the label you create is expecting 203dpi, then you will see shrunken label. Your situation doesn't exactly sound like this is the case but it may be worth checking.

Seagull Scientific has drivers. Their Zebra driver is recommended by many.
That's the link for their printer drivers page. Go to the bottom and click on 'Download a printer driver'. Then scroll the list to find the one you need.

How many labels has the printer printed? Because it sounds to me like you just need to replace the print head.
They are around $400 from whomever your supplier is, and very easy to replace.
