I had a Zebra 90xill that started printing every other label even after full calibration of media and ribbon. Cleaened sensors to no avail. Set factory reset - No Change

If this occurs it is a sensor problem. I replaced the top sensor - It now works perfectly

Adjut the sensor or re-calibrate.

To adjust sensor:

Open up the printer where you put the label, where the paper is fed there is are two green levers, one that helps guide the paper (media guide) which is adjustable by flipping down and sliding that is located  on the right and another one that is ON the media assembly(media sensor) check this for a reference as to what I'm talking about, it's not for a Zebra but they have the same functions.

Go to page 29 and magnify it(400%) to get a better look

depending on the type of labels you use is how to adjust

1- labels with a knotch on the side, sensor MUST be all the way on the left ( standing in front of the machine , for reference)

2-labels with a gap in between each one, MUST be set towards the Middle of the labels.

Adjust a little at a time to check by pushing the feed button

if this does not work it must be recalibrated.

I don't have a manual for that printer, sorry.

SOURCE: 2 LABELS COME OUT

your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch

The printer prints one label and skips another one


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.

Lx900e primera when print - blank labels


Are you using the program that accompanies the labels. Or by the same company?
I suppose your labels come 3 to a sheet, and you're only printing 1. Have you tried printing 3 at a time?

Mis align printout


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,

You should make sure you have the label program set for the same size label you are printing and calibrate the printer before you start a roll.

Label Printing


The printer is not the issue here...That is a great printer BTW.

The issue is which program are you using when trying to print out these labels? Do you have Microsoft Word, Works, or some simular word processor program installed on your computer?

There are free document templates that have all the settings for printing 2 x 4 labels and others. Here is a link for a 4 x 2 tem-late that would work in any version of Word, SureThing CD Labeler and any program that handle PDFs.

http://www.worldlabel.com/autoconfig/autotemplates.asp?finditemnum=ol125

You can take label printing to the next level by using a program that will read in your address book and print each on one label automatically. You don't spend time trying to type them all in.

If yo have MS word, look under HELP for "mail merge", that wil get you on the right track.

Let me know =)

It's not the printers, has to be the software.

Contact your vendor for support.
