Question about Toshiba TEC B-452 Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

I have a TEC B-452 which ran fine on my older computer (Windows 7 operating system). I got a new computer (Windows 8), got new software (Labelview 8.5) and got everything set up fine but it won't print correctly. It comes down a fraction of a hair every time a label prints. I noticed there were calibration files on the old computer but can't seem to find any info on how to create, etc. I've tried everything BUT calibrating it again.

Check that you have chosen the correct detection (Trasmissive)
This looks like you are using continuous paper.

SOURCE: Zebra S600 printer continues calibrating

The factory default settings for the S600 is to auto calibrate every time the printhead is closed and every time the power is cycled. If the media sensor is not positioned correctly for the media you are using the label size will not be detected during a calibration. You mentioned the media has no markings, doe sthe media have a space between the labels? If so, the media sensor may not see the gap in the labels adn therefor is not calibrating properly or not calibrating at all. Check the media sensor position. I have found that the media sensor must be at least 1" from the inner wall of the printer so it doesn't see the edge of the backing in oder to read the size of the labels.

SOURCE: NEED TO CALIBRATE MY SX4

Switch the printer on with the buttons feed and pause pressed.Press feed to display Sensor adjust. Press pause until transmissive is displayed. With the liner in the cells press on restart until a star is displayed next to the value (around 4.7V) press Pause the calibration is finished. In my opinion, you should check the size of your label and the distance between the labels (label gap) and also check that you have selected the correct detection (Transmissive for gap or relective for black mark)

SOURCE: TEC B472 won't print full qty of labels

What is the software used?
Normally the printer will decrement or increment its counters when the correct instructions are sent, If it is the pc that sends the labels then your problem is due to the pc.
Otherwise if the count is internal then external electromagnetic noises may cause this sort of phenomenon.
If it's on a parallel port, then your problem may comme from the vibrations of the printer. The init signal on this port is very near to a gnd pin and with the vibrations this causes a reset of the printer.
Last problem may come from a firmware deterioration. All depends cpu either the firmware is Eprom or Rom.

Driver windows 8


All drivers for Windows 8 are available on the Microsoft website. Since Windows 7 all drivers need certification, from Microsoft and then you can download them there. All other drivers offered via other sites, could still work fine on older operating systems, but not on Windows 7 or 8.x. So older hardware can't be installed, unless you get certified drivers form Microsoft.

Computer does not recognise Scanner -- why not?


How old is the scanner? did you read for what Windows version it was made in the first place?
If it is for an older OS then Windows7 and you are using Windows 7 or higher, you ran out of luck.
Always first install the software that came with the device. The driver needed for the device is supposed to be on the install disk.

You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems. So to make sure your hardware is compatible with the OS. Check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
If your device was working on a USB2 port, it also should work on an USB3 port, on the same computer. But don't expect another speed, because the slowest part decides the speed.

So most of the time the drivers that came with your tape drive, could be used with the operating systems of that time. Till Windows XP, you could install drivers yourself, even old and outdated drivers most of the time worked. In the newer OS'n you ran out of luck.

Do I need Windows XP Mode?
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software. Visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find software that works with Windows 7.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.

Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.

Older versions of Kojak's EasyShare software do not support the Windows 7 operating system, but Kodak's new version 8 does. You probably just need to download/install the new software at www.kodak.com
