SOURCE: Pausing between labels

I have found that using the designer driver causes this problem. You may need to go back to the originma driver for that printer if this is the case for you.

SOURCE: Datamax I 4208 prints slow when set to landscape

try using a seagull sceintific driver.
also if you are sending graphics (barcode) instead of an actual barcode decoded font, the printer will process as a graphic.
If serial, speed up to max, if parallel it should print quite fast

SOURCE: Printer keeps pausing itself!!

By UI do you mean RUI (Remote User Interface)? Have you installed a network kit? If so did you upgrade firmware using SST? If not, you need to do this or printing won't work.

In service mode. Copier > Display > Version > PS/PCL there needs to be a number e.g. 30.06. If there is no number the copier does not have any print drivers on it and won't be able to print. You also need to have a N BOOT-ROM (included in network kit). There Should be a N next to the number for BOOT-ROM under Copier > Display > Version if a N BOOT-ROM is installed.

Why wont my datamax 4208 printer read the same label format as the 4212


It will read and print the label format, but you need to download and choose a different driver for the other printer. Seagull Scientific makes the drivers for Datamax, so visit their site for the most recent versions. you will need to open your label format in your software, duplicate the label format and choose the new driver for the I-4212.

Wrinkles in ribbon using Datamax H-4212 printer


Definitely. possible solution match the width of your label and ribbon. if your ribbon is wider for .5 inch it should be good.
1. check your spindle alignment, printhead alignment and rotate the green knob on the printhead while printing so that you'll see the difference.

Datamax I4212 printer is dropping characters on large prints jobs from Easylabel. Any idea why?


If you are using serial port (COM1), problably your cable doesn't have flow control. You need a cable that use RTS,CTS and DSR. If you are using paralell port, make a change to serial port.

You need to calibrate the printer using the instructions located in the manual. This should be in area 5.2 of the manual. If you don't have the manual you can download them at this address along with software updates and firmware updates.
