Re: printer skipping labels
Your labels are narrow, and might not be aligned beneath the gap sensor.
Remove the cover and make sure the labels are loaded all the way to the left (toward the inside wall of the printer.) There's a "label Guide" that keeps the labels from wandering to the right. There are two thumbscrews beneath the label path. The thumbscrew toward the back of the printer lets you adust the "label guide", which keeps the labels from wandering away from the sensor (and the proper printhead position).
Move the lever clockwise to open the printhead and adjust the guide so it is slightly snug against the labels but so that you can pull the labels without much effort.
The thumbscrew towards the front of the printer allow you to position the gap sensor to detect the leading edge and trailing edge of the label, so the printer can . If your printer used to work OK, this might be in the proper place, but if it is loose, slide the thumbscrew left or right to center the sneosr between the edges of the label.

Skipping every other label is a software template or size format issue. This means your label size in the computer is not set up to match the label size your printing or you have too much text on your label causing it to print out of the bottom margin causing it to skip to the next label.. Very common issue.

First, I need to admit it. This is the worst printer I have ever used. I had all kond of troubles with it.
The skipping labels problem was my misery for 2 days to. I had to find out that my labels were falling out of the printing area generating a new page (label). Go back fix your width. Make sure your label fits one page (label). Print again. That's what I did. Good luck.
This could have a couple of different causes. Best thing to do is determine if the problem is with the printer or the software.Turn the printer off and back on again.After the power-on self test is done, just press the feed key.Does the printer feed just one label ?If so, then you know the printer has a good calibration on the size of the label.Now print a label.Does it skip one after printing ?If it does, now you know the problem is in the software because the printer is only going to do what it’s told to do.Check all settings in the label software / printer driver to make sure label size is accurate, correct printer driver is being used, etc. So first check to see if the printer is ok by itself.If it feeds two labels after powering up, then the calibration is needs to be redone.Also make sure the media sensor is positioned over the label. This can cause skipping as well if out of position. Hope that helps !
He are the steps you need to calibrate your printer
Label Length Calibration Note: This is typically the only procedure required when first installing the labels.
1. Load the printer with media and ribbon.
2. Press the printer front panel MODE key until the CALIBRATE LED is lit.
3. Press the FEED key and allow the labels to feed.
4. When the labels have stopped press the MODE key once to save the value in memory.
Eventually you HAVE to give the printer a break, during inventory times at work, we have to print 50K+ labels, and in order to prevent either serial number skipping or other issues, I print in 250 batches, yes; there is a time gap but it's better than to restart a series of prints because a few numbers were skipped. Try printing 200 and 200 sets to prevent errors or skips.
You need to calibrate. Hold down the feed key while powering the printer on, then let go. The printer will calibrate, print a config label, then fo into dump mode. Press the fee key again to go out of dump. Of your issue persists, there could be a problem with yoru media, or with the commands that you are sending to the printer.
hi, its hard to say but.... does it feed ok or skip labels??? if it skips labels, the sensor will need replacement or adjustment, also download the latest drivers, and if your driver or software gives u the option, play around with the magnification settings, also double check length, borders etc, try making the label length setting appear longer , shorter etc. Hope this is of help to you,M,
The first thing I would do is to default the printer then run a width calibration. The instruction are in the user's manual that should have come with the printer. If the instruction did not come with the printer I can provide the instruction.
