It print half of a label, then stop with the eror light on, can u help me?
Hold in the Feed button for 4-5 seconds, which causes the printer to attempt to "Auto-calibrate." If that doesn't solve it, then slide out the Media Sensor (green plastic bar that sticks out over the labels) about 1 inch from all the way in ("in" = left if looking from front). Then press Feed to clear errors. If still get same error, then look for piece of label or ribbon stuck in that error - ok to blow out with canned air. Then try holding in Feed again for 4-5 seconds to Auto-calibrate again.

My datamax thermal is not
These printers do not "heat up" as such. Possible causes are:
1. Incorrect ribbon type for fitted ribbon spools. Look at back plate and see which way arrows are pointing. If arrows point Anti-clockwise, then you require inside wound ribbon (i.e. standard datamax) If pointing clockwise then you require outside wound (i.e. Zebra type ribbon). Check ribbons by touching sticky side of label to ribbon (it will transfer ink to label on print side).
2. Could also be faulty printhead, Logic board or Power supply. These will require an engineer to check properly.

Datamax M-4206 printing too slow
The way you can do this is to use Datamax fonts in your LabelMatrix program instead of truetype fonts like arial or times new roman. After making this change, do a test print and see if print improves. Another possible solution is use USB instead of Parallel cable (if you're not using it already).
