Question about Datamax Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Datamax I class, Model# DMX-I-4208, before we upgraded to this printer we were able to print bar code labels with a UPC A style bar code, now it prints a Code 39 bar code. We need to be able to print the UPC A style bar code again. Can you switch bar code styles in an existing data base?

After changing the size of your labels the printer needs to measure the new label length. Press the feed button for four seconds (wiht new labels loaded & printhead locked down). If this doesn't fix your problem you need to correctly position the media sensor.Make sure the short white line on the media sensor is above the label gap.

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

check for the flatness of the printhead across the platen.
also check to see if the head is not worn(will be white colored at the head heat elements.
also check to see if the platen is severly worn.

SOURCE: Datamax I 4208 prints slow when set to landscape

try using a seagull sceintific driver.
also if you are sending graphics (barcode) instead of an actual barcode decoded font, the printer will process as a graphic.
If serial, speed up to max, if parallel it should print quite fast

Adjusting Datamax i class


If the ribbon is moving right on the I-4208 so far that you aren't getting print on the left of your label, the typical solution is to make sure that your ribbon roll is pushed all the way in, as far as it will go (at the top center of the printer on the black hub where the ribbon and it's cardboard core slide on). Similarly, make sure that the used ribbon that is winding on to the Rewind Hub at the top front is also in (to the left) as far as it will go).

Dmx-4204 and zpl


You can't, on this obsolete model. zpl is "Zebra Printer Language." This model of Datamax is dpl only ("Datamax Printer Language"). Most current models of Datamax printers are dpl and zpl compatible.
