Question about Zebra 105Se Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Printing solid black across the label.

I have a Zebra 105Se that the the printhead had gone bad so I changed the printhead. Afterwards the printer will only print a solid black bar across the label. If I feed the labels the bar is even printed then. I have tried to reset the printer but that did nothing. Thanks for any help.

Sounds like a defective printhead.

Reinstall the old one to see if the problem remains or not.

The message shows the printer was powered on with printhead disconnected. The print head is bad and needs to be replaced. Make sure power is off during the installation or it could damage the new printhead.

Power off the printer and press and hold the pause key for 5 seconds while powering on the printer. This will start printing a bar across the width of the printhead. You should be able to determine whether it is a printhead issue or platen roller or both. Recycle power to exit diagnostics.

My Zebra 105SE is printing fine on the left


I think the 105 has an adjustment on the printhead. There are left and right hand adjusters just above the printhead. It sounds as if the right hand one does not have enough pressure on it, try increasing the RH one and see the effect on the print.

Can I print in color with a Zebra 105se


Thermal printers don't have any 'color' of their own; the 'printed' text/numbers are actually only areas subjected to heat from the printhead which exposes the color of tiny beads of ink that are on the paper itself by melting them. Use a fingernail to 'score' the paper and you will see it change color just as happens in the printer.

Clean your platen roller. It's the white rubber roller (that turns and pulls your labels through your printer) located under your printhead. When this gets slick it causes your labels to slip while printing.
You should use rubbing alcohol to clean it. Your computer guys may also have some cleaning wipes in a foil packet that you can use.

Label peeling


Sometimes the peel bar gets worn out and isn't very sharp anymore (replace). This will affect the peeling. Also try increasing the printhead pressure with the printhead toggle.

Every label printed starts further down on label zebra 105se


It sounds like the problem is with the media sensor. Make sure you haven't loaded the ribbon through the same slot that the paper enters on the media guide. There is a reflective metal plate above the media that reflects the sensor from below the media.

Zebra 105SE label material will not retract in prep for next Lab


The platen is the driving force for the label. the main drive belt runs all functions in the printer.
Is the back feed turn on in the printer? Check the setup.

Also if the print driver is set(doc/properties settings on print depending on software) to use pirnter settings, and the back feed is turned off in the printer, it will not backfeed.

Zebra 105se blank labels problem


I would say the roller isn't the problem. I had the same problem on many Zebra printers, but often the calibration helped. Then it could do, when printing task label is for larger/longer than the label size is set in the printer system (conflict of software with printer settings after calibration). It could be set too down to bottom in Y axis. Or it could be in the software settings - as action after print - not sure.
Try to open the printer queue while the label is printed and check if the label has proper number of pages or there's 1 page more. If it is the right number - then the problem is on printer side (recalibrate, reflash it). If the number is about 1 higher, the problem is with settings of the label size (barcode software, printer settings) or action after print on PC side.

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.
