Perform a Manual Calibration:
Perform a media and ribbon sensor calibration to reset the sensitivity of the sensors so the
media and ribbon are detected more accurately. If you change the type of ribbon or media,
your printer may operate better if you perform this calibration.

Calibrate Media and Ribbon Sensors
Use this procedure to adjust the sensitivity of the printer's sensors. In a
printer that has the Thermal Transfer option installed, both media and
ribbon sensors are adjusted. In a Direct Thermal printer (no Thermal
Transfer option installed), only media sensors are adjusted, and the LCD
displays for ribbon do not appear in this procedure.
Important • This procedure must be followed exactly as presented.
All of the steps must be performed even if only one of the sensors
requires adjustment. You may press the left arrow at any step in this
procedure to cancel the procedure.
How to select this parameter:
1. Press ENTER to start the calibration procedure.
The LOAD BACKING/REMOVE RIBBON prompt displays.
2. Open the printhead.
3. Remove approximately 8 in. (203 mm) of labels from the backing,
and pull the media into the printer so that only the backing is between
the media sensors.
4. Remove the ribbon (if used).
5. Close the printhead.
6. Press ENTER.
The message CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT displays.
The printer adjusts the scale (gain) of the signals that it receives from
the media and ribbon sensors. On the sensor profile, this essentially
corresponds to moving the peak of the graph up or down to optimize
the readings for your application.
RELOAD ALL displays.
7. Open the printhead and pull the media forward until a label is
positioned under the media sensor.
8. Reload the media and ribbon (if used).
9. Close the printhead.
10. Press ENTER.
The message CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT displays.
The printer does a calibration; during this process, the printer
determines the label length. To see the new readings on the new scale,
print a sensor profile.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Prints ok from computer but when I make a copy, the copy is blurred.


Can you please remove all cartridges, and put them back and perform a quick calibration? I will fix the issue. Also please make sure use a good ink cartridge, the refill one does create this issue. Upgrade firmware will be the next step if quick calibration doesn't help. Please let me know.
Thanks

My printer gets stuck on initializing...or calibrating. I have unplugged, rebooted and have gotten it to say "ready" but still will not print.


After you power on the printer, does it ALWAYS do calibration, and if so, does the calibration cycle complete or just goes on and on?
From your description, it sounds like the printer will come to the READY ... eventually after calibration. That's a good sign. The fact that it does not print could be other factors.
1. first, get a high speed parallel cable and hook the printer directly up to your computer. Be sure your commnications are good.
1a. if you only have ethernet connection to the printer, then you'll need to print out the information page so that you can find the IP address of the printer. If the printer's IP address shows all zeros, then the IP address for the printer's jet direct card has not been defined. Instead of going on about how to install a new port, drivers, etc. please tell me where you're at.
