Question about Printronix T5000 Thermal Printer

T5000 Thermal Printer

Hello,

My name is dave wintermute. I am a developer with Line 6 corporation in Calabasas CA. We just bought 20,000 in label printers from Printronix. We are having problems getting our 4x6 container labels to print in the 4x6 area. We have done all the setup including setting the gap and autocalibrating but every time we go to create labels by the third label the barcodes are drifting into the next label and by label 4 they are all off. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks Dave

    Are you referring to the positioning of the media sensor on page 28 of the user guide?

    I never thought I would be getting tech advice from anyone with "bubba" in their nickname but to every rule there is an exception. I will try this bubba. Thank you so much for the advice!

    Check the settings inside the machine and make sure that the guides are lined up with the edge of the label.



    It could be drifting if it is set for stream printing.

There are two guides on that machine.

One guide will make sure that the media is locked down and secured. if it isn't it will cause drifting.

There is also another guide around the thermal head before printing that guides the labels before it prints. It either white or or it could be a green color.

are you using the takeup roller on the printer to hold the wax paper? If you are is it straight on the take up roller?

    Its a long story.



    I've worked with these types of printers for many years now especially when I was working for Pitney Bowes when they were making them.



    If that doesn't work, send me a photo of what the feeding looks like from the inside and I'll check it out.

Why is my Zebra printer printing every other label?


The labels you are printing have an extra line feed (a blank line) after the last printed line. Remove them.

Remove any "FormFeed" from the label run, if you are doing a "merge".

Zebra 140xiIIIPlus w/ attached cutter, cutter will not cut labels


For the cutter to work it is necessary to instruct the printer to "Use the cutter" This setting is usually accessible in the printer driver. Your label program interacts with the printer driver. Ensure that the cutter option is selected in the printer driver.

Zebra 105Se missing line


Try cleaning the thermal printhead. Zebra makes thermal printhead cleaners or you can use a qtip and some isopropyl alcohol.

Make sure the printer is turned off before doing this.

I don't see that it is possible. The SMT tools themselves won't let in an import. The programing or tagging would have to be done by you.

AS400 Spool files stuck in outq in send mode


I have WiFi Zebra QL420. In my case a simple header label prints fine then the complex label (many fields, barcode, lines & boxes) gets stuck. Labels are in separate spol files. We have many other labels printing fine, just this one ALWAYS gets stuck.
If I send same data from PC to printer it works fine.
I can see with ethernet sniffer that header label data goes but complex label doesn't even leave the iSeries. My sniffer is too crude to tell me what LPR level protocol is saying.
