Go to Control Panel > Pritners and Faxes. You should be able to see your printer there. You can check and ask it to print a test page.

I have a datamax I series and I would like to know how to troubleshoot the stepper motor

What type of problem do you have?
Will the printer not feed?
There has been some troubles on early model of the Datamax I class printers that are detailed in a service bullitin on the driver/power supply.
If the printer feeds intermittently, or runs back wards(hunts) it is probably a board failure. I usually replace the board and the motor on exchange with DAtamax if under warranty.

Hi! I have a problem with my office Datamax E class printer. When i change tickets in the printer it doesn't print them the right size - normally they are too short. Do you have any idea how to solve...

If you are changing length(feed length) you may have to recalibrate the printer . Also ensure that your print format is the correct length for the stock.
You can look at the setup of the printer using the datamax-oneil printer configutation program, or if it is using IP connection, you can go directly to the internal web page for set up. make the cal length 3 times the label length, or leave at the default value.
