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.

head cleaning fault, you need to remove the option for head cleaning.
The position fault may be due to either a wrong label size, wrong detecting sensor selection or your printer sensors needs callibaration
Most likely problems: Wrong sensor set in the media type area. Gap, Reflective. If the incorrect meday sensor is set, the unit will give a TOF error. If you hae pressed the feed button and kept pressed for at least 4 labels, and it does not automatically calibrate, check the type of sensor. If you still get error, and the correct sensor is set, do a complete calibration.
You can downlad the user manual at Datamax-ONeil Web site.
It sounds like you may not have the latest firmware. You should go to the Datamax website and download the latest firmware revision for your printer. http://www.datamaxcorp.com/software/ If it's not available on the website, you can call Datamax with your CID# and serial number and ask them to send you the latest firmware for that printer. This should hopefully clear up your problem.
Apparantly, you have the present sensor enabled in the printer and there is no physical present sensor option installed. Go to the printer menu by pressing MENU. Press FEED until you get PRINTER OPTIONS and then press CANCEL. Press FEED until you get to PRESENT SENSOR and then press CANCEL. Press FEED until it says DISABLED and press CANCEL. Press MENU repeatedly slowly until you get a prompt to save changes then press CANCEL. Press FEED to clear error and it should go away.
The printer must be calibrated or the type of sensor is wrong. Verify that the sensor type is correct for your label (gap or black mark) and you can calibrate it by pressing the FEED key for about 5 seconds approximately.
