Hi, I am trying to print onto round labels 17mm and it keeps going off line after printing one. I fwe manage to print two off it skips a label so either way we are ending up losing halp of our roll of labels.
The issue sounds inpart to be related the set lable length, the printer thinks that the data will not fit on the label and gives the error. also note that the gap sensor is not in the center so the printer will not and can not autodetect the media correctly. you need to tweak the label setup. you could trick the printer by centering the labels over the gap sensor or if you do a autocalibating use the lable size it give you which would be much smaller then 17mm

It seems like its inevitable, you print your own labels at home and then a few months or even weeks later those labels are starting to peel off. With one small tip you can keep those labels from coming off. What I have been doing with the labels that I put on my kids school supplies is rounding off the corners. After I print the label and trim it down to size I just trim off the corners to make them round and it works wonders. This works simply because when you have a sharp corner it is easy for stuff to get in under the label and then before you know it the whole thing is coming off. By rounding the edges you make it harder for stuff to get under it.
The only way I could get round it was to type one page of the labels, then print on plain paper. Check with label size then go back to screen and individually change the labels that were misaligned. Then when I printed on to a label page it was correct. Time consuming but at least I didn't waste any labels that way, only paper.
We have found a reset that we use.
We unplug the printer and then we hold down the feed button and we keep holding down the feed button while we plug back in.
It goes through some sort of a reset and this sometimes works.
It sounds like you are trying to get too much onto the labels or onto a sheet of labels. Try a few pages with a size smaller font and if that solves the problem, the issue is too much info for the epson to fit on.
WP will push the limits of any printer if you make it do so like this and the printer maker may have rounded the specs in the driver.
Update your driver.
Try changing from inches to cm or points etc to see what the limits are.
Then respect that the printer can do no more with that particular driver.
