Question about Intermec EasyCoder 3400 Thermal Label Printer
The label sensor on the 3400 is in the hinged area where a metal plate swings down to make loading labels easier. The sensor can't be adjusted left or right like some other Intermec models, so it's critical that the labels be snug to the left side (as viewed from the front) so the sensor can read the leading and trailing edges of the labels.
There is a small "Guide" in the slot of the plate that should keep the labels in position. Use the thumbscrew beneath the plate to adjust the guide so that the labels are snug but you can still pull the labels without much effort (with the head open). This almost always fixes the problem. If the guide and tumbscrew are missing, look in the bottom of the printer for the pieces, including the washer.
Close the head, hit the Feed button a few times, and labels should feed consistantly (the feeds should probably move the label to the start of the printhead and then to the tear bar).
If the labels still don't feed, be aware that the same light is used to show that the ribbon is out. If you use direct thermal printing (without a ribbon), check the bottom switch on the back is set toward "DT" and then turn the printer off and on to read the switches.

Don't worry about the memory being full, the problem is the ink, and once the machine is able to print the FAX will empty memory by printing the faxes out. This might sound bad but I have seen this happen, when you unpacked the new ink cartridge, did you pull off the little plastic protector? And is the paper loaded?
