Question about Datamax DMX-I-4208 Label Printer

1 Answer

I print bar code labels constantly and as of late the bar code is not scanning. I have examined the label and it looks like there are some blank spaces in the label and it has gotten lighter. Any suggestions? Also the text is not what it use to be and have only had it 2 years.

Sounds like your printhead is scratched, therefore needs to be replaced.

You probably need to adjust the leveling cam if you have not done so already. This is the green thumbscrew near the print mechanism.

SOURCE: Zebra label alignment

you can adjust this in the template file for your price tags. how did you create your basic price tag label? in the zebra label creator? if so, make the adjustment there. if you have a .ejf file for your price tag label, you should be able to open it in notepad and add the height in pixel dots with the "q" or "Q" command from the EPL programming handbook. This can be a little tricky, but with some trial and error, you can get it.

SOURCE: Dymo 400 was working fine, then I had to unjam

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:

SOURCE: Brady ID Pal. Display says:

Brady printers have a sensor that reads information from the cartridge. The printer will not work if a connection cannot be made to the cartridge.The most common cause of failure is in the cartridge and switching to a different cartridge usually fixes that problem. Having the same problem with two cartridges is starting to indicate there is a failure in the printer, although it is possible (but not likely) to have two cartridges in row fail. A good first step is to be sure the printer is clean. If that doesn't work you'll most likely need to send your printer in for repair. A good source of free tech. support for the Brady ID Pal is Graphic Products. They even help people who are not their customers, They also do Brady printer cleaning and some repairs. They have an online for for requesting tech. support located at: http://www.graphicproducts.com/request-support.php or you can call 1-888-326-9244.

What causes intermittent skipping of labels? In the middle of a print job the printer will spew a blank label then continue on with the print job, I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue.


Check your mailing list. Especially check how many invisible spaces are after a name or address. Suspect extra characters are pushing the mailing list into the next page or label and then it will print an extra blank page or label. Seen this happen when I was a Computer System Administrator and had to fix a similar fault for a client.
There is a reveal code option on most word processors that shows up hidden spaces.

My printer is printing 3 blank labels before printing the correct label?


Sometimes it's the Internet Browser (if you are printing from an Online Software) and by clicking File ' Page Setup you can make sure margins are set to 0.1 (or as close as possible it may override you) and all six bars below (headers and footers) should be switched to Blank.

Why dose printer eject blank labels after every print


If pressing the FEED key advances just one label at a time then the printer works ok by itself. The printer will only do what it's told to do so so if extra labels feed at the end of printing, then you have to look at the printer driver or the label format for something adding the extra labels.

Hope that helps

The printer will print a bar code but the reader will not read it. the reader reads the bar code from a second printer just fine


Sounds like there are some elements worn off of the printhead causing some of the bars to not be printed. To test, create a label that prints a thick black line or solid black box across the width of the label (assuming a 4" label). Any vertical white lines that show indicate elements that are not functioning.
You could also put one label above the other, lining up the barcodes and you'll probably see bars that are missing from the label that won's scan.
The only ways to correct the problem are to install a new printhead or move the barcode field on the label so that the missing elements fall in the spaces between the bars.

Hope that helps !

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

Barcodes not scanning


Very possible you have a bad printhead. If you have a bad dot in your print area, it can cause barcodes to not scan. Look to see if you have a blank vertical line running down your label.
