My printer is printing blank labels. Print not transferring to white labels from thermal roll. PX4i -No ink is on the label Poor Print Quality from PD41 PD41 - printout is light PC43d- Not printing anything on the labels M-Class Mark II - not printing, poor quality Advances labels but does not print PM4i- barcode is printing blurry when horizontal
If the printer is printing blank labels check the following:
Ensure the correct media combination is used with the printer. [Thermal Transfer labels require ribbon, Direct Transfer labels do not require ribbon.] Incompatible ribbon/label combination can cause blank labels be printed.
If a print image on the Ink roll but not labels, the ribbon may be installed backwards. Easiest way to fix this is to flip the supply roll and feed the twist in the ribbon until it is on the take roll.
Print heat settings are incorrect for the media [Heat|Media Sensitivity|Darkness|Ribbon Factor|Ribbon Constant]
Printhead alignment. A misaligned printhead [not over the apex of the platen roller] can cause issues with printing.
A bad printhead can also be the cause of blank labels.
