Have used a Datamax I4208 with LabelView without a problem. New system with Crystal Report/pdf output and the top line (3/8") fails to print. Label size 4"x 6" is unchanged. What needs adjusting?

what interface are you using? sounds like windows is sending the data to the printer as graphics which is much more intence then EPL hence the delay between each label.

You probably need to adjust the leveling cam if you have not done so already. This is the green thumbscrew near the print mechanism.

SOURCE: Datamax M-4206 printing too slow

Hello,

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).

Perhaps the sensor is out of position, you must move to the left. Also check that the hole senser is not blocked. Also verified that the sensor type (gap or black mark) in the software is correct.

Position fault or Out of stock when the printer is loaded with paper stock can usually be solved by calibrating the printer.

Press & hold the FEED button. Let the printer cycle 8-10 times. Should feed to the right position and say Calibration Complete in the window.

Hope this solves your problem.

I have to reset my datamax i4208 every time I print. I cannot do more than one print job at a time. Help.


I need more information. What system are you using to drive the printer with? If it is a Windows computer it is almost certain to be a faulty/outdated driver.

In Seagull driver/Bartender software, Present Distance may be called Tear Off and can be adjusted after checking Post-Print actions in Document Properties, Stock tab. Standard setting is 0.40 inches.
On the same tab, right below that, is "Top Offset", and that adjustment may get you the lower Start of Print you want. Ok to try negative number here.

We use the Datamax Printer to print labels with labelview. The printer itself however keeps saying :position fault" how do I fix that?

Datamax I4208


position fault is normally a problem with either the formatting or the printer is not calibrated correctly.
Hold the feed button down until at least 3 labels pass by the sensor.
Also check to see the sensor is directly over the die cut on the label if more than 1 up label
