Question about Avery Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Monarch 9855 won't print labels unless I press pause once, press enter once, and press the feed button as many times as the number of labels I need. I spoke on the phone to an Avery Dennison technician, he seemed to think it was a settings issue. Any clues? I enter everything as normal first, and it gets stuck on "printing 1 of (however many I'm printing)" and does nothing until I press the additional three buttons. Thanks in advance!

    Edit: we discovered we only need to press the Feed button for each ticket, not the other two buttons. However, tickets used to come out automatically. Any clues?

SOURCE: label not advancing to tear-off perforation

Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels:
1. Make sure that printer power is off.
2. Press and hold the feed button.
3. Turn printer power on.
4. When the status light blinks, release
the feed button.
5. The printer advances the media to
measure and verify the length of
individual labels or tags. The printer
then prints a status summary and
remains in diagnostic dump mode.
6. To begin normal operation, tap the
feed button. The printer prints "out of
DUMP" and advances a label.

I am surprised that you are using that sequence of buttons to solve this problem. I am pretty sure that they want you to go into the "Media Sensor Calibration" setup in the config menu. It is a bit more complicated than what you have described. I also believe that the size of the gap on two of your labels might be out of tolerance (they are usually 1/8" gaps between the labels). The black marks are a problem for the transmissive sensors. You may need to move the transmissive media gap sensor (remember it has two parts: upper and lower). I would usually setup mine for a place beyond the black mark so that you are looking at just the white paper.

To start out:
1. Load the backing of a 6" strip of media (no label attached).
2. Remove a ribbon (if you usually use one).
3. Close the printhead.
4. Press SETUP/EXIT and then NEXT/SAVE until "Media and Ribbon Calibrate" appears.
5. Press "+" to start the calibration procedure. You should see the "Load Backing" in the LCD Display. You already have the backing loaded so continue to the next step.
6. Press "+" to answer the message and the next screen should say, "Remove Ribbon". You have also removed the ribbon.
7. Press the "+" to continue. You should see the screen say, "Calibrating Please Wait". After the sensors are setup by the machine a new screen should appear, "Reload All".
8. Open the printhead, and move the labels until they are loaded correctly to print. Smooth out the ribbon and load it correctly.
9. Withe media and ribbon now loaded, press "+" to continue and the machine should say, "Media and Ribbon Calibrate".
10. Press the Setup/Exit button once. It should say, "Save Changes Permanent". Press Next/Save to finish the process.
11. Do a normal calibration of your stock and print a label.

You are done. The machine will run for the labels you have setup the sensors for. Unfortunately, you must do this for each of the media types. To automate this, you could run a Configuration listing, capture the settings you just created for each type of label. Take these to a programmer to have them send the setup to the machine before the job. This is beyond the scope of this type support to really help you.

SOURCE: Zebra LP 2844 doesn't feed label all the way out

Hi Brian,
When the last label printed is still under the printhead, that means the printer is in "rewind mode". There should be an option for "tear off" mode in the printer driver. This is the mode that pushes the last label printed out to the tear bar. The printer will then "backfeed" when printing the next label. Peel off mode is used if you want to print a label and have it "peeled" off the liner so that you can just pick up the label off the liner and apply it. That takes the rewind option to be installed.
Watch out though, if you are using a label software package, there might be a setting in the label format setup for "tear off" which usually overrides the settings in the printer.

Hope that helps !

How to print IP address


If you have an ethernet or WIFI card installed, and the printer is at the ready prompt, press both the left and right arrow buttons at the same time. As long as you have labels that are at least 2 x 2, you should see enough information on the 3rd label to tell you about the basic network setup of the printer.

Once you get the IP Address, you can then web into the print server, and by using the password of "access" without the quotes, you can then modify the network settings to a very granular level of detail.

Occasionaly labels are not printing in the correct order


This is not a printer related issue. The printer prints exactly what it is told to do, and in the order received. If the data coming to the printer is out of order, the printer cannot correct it because it doesn't know that it is out of order.

If you have a way to pause and/or prioritize the data that you're spooling, you may be able to provide a flow of the data that prevents the printer from printing out of order.

We have a 9855 Monarch barcode Printer. We are


If the printer display just shows Ready, but doesn't print, there could be a few things wrong.

1 - no data is going to the printer
2 - data is going to the printer, but it is not the printer's native language
3 - cable connectivity issues
4 - wrong cable is being used
5 - if wireless, data is not going to the correct IP

If using a 3rd party application, make sure that you've chosen the correct Monarch printer, as well as printing to the correct port. Sometime people print to LPT instead of Serial, as an example.

If using 3rd party drivers, make sure of the same thing.

To see if the printer actually works, press both of the arrows on the display, at the same time, after the printer is at the ready screen. As long as have the printer configured correctly (ribbon, supply type, etc.), the printer should print out a couple of labels.

How dod you check the configuration and firmware version on the Paxar Monarch 9855?


Perform an internal diagnostics test print. I believe you can press both of the arrow buttons at the same time, and it should print out what's in the printer and how its configured. There you should find the firmware version.

Different Crystal output from model 9835 and 9855 Monarchs

Print alignment problem. Prints across 2 lables. not sensing the black line on back of label roll.


As it turns out, a good cleaning took care of the problem. I suspect the sensor bar was dirty so it could not detect the black line on the back of the labels for alignment.

Thanks anyway!

9855 ribbon take up reel not working


When you're sending data to the printer you're sending a command that is telling the printer you're NOT using a ribbon. When the printer receives the data it's shutting off the ribbon. Check your software.
You should be set for THERMAL TRANSFER.(RIBBON)
THERMAL DIRECT Means NO RIBBON
