Zebra 105sl printer labels print too small


There are 3 different DPI Printheads for Zebra printers if you print a label set up for a 200 DPI Printhead on a printer with a 300 DPI Printhead installed it will be about 66% of the size.

I loaded the windows update driver and connected my PSC 2115 all in one printer. It prints text documents and the test page without any issues. It displays images in print prieview but won't print them.


You need to get the manual for this printer, it has a printing language all it's own. The encoded text tells it where to put the bar code on the label, how to encode it, what text to put under it, etc. It's looking for a specially designed print file that's plain text. There may be a way to turn that off and turn it into a bitmap printer, but you would need the manual for that.

Increasing Speed on Zebra 105sl


If you are refering to print speed, from the label format, press F5 to bring up the LABEL & SETUP PROPERTIES. Click on LABEL OPTIONS and print speed will be the first choice.

If you are refering to how fast data is sent to the printer, then that depends on the connection to the PC and whether you are using true-type fonts or not.

Hope that helps !

Zebra 105SL prints 90 degs to what's on the screen


Print out a Cancel Self Test label:
1. Turn the printer off
2. Press and hold the CANCEL button while you turn the printer on.

If the label that prints out looks normal, you have a config issue in either your printer driver or your label software's page setup.

Please help me find a driver for zebra 160S supporting Windows XP


Go to zebra.com and download the ZUD - (Zebra Universal Driver) - not the Zebra Designer Driver. Run the setup utility and install the driver for the 105SL and choose the port for your 160S. You may have to change the driver properties for firmware versions X.10 and earlier - I do not think that this feature is supported in the Designer Driver. The main point here is that if you can't find support for your specific model, install another model that supports the same features and print language. In your case, the 140XiIIIPlus has thermal transfer and runs on ZPL (Zebra Printer Language) just like your 160.

Sounds like you are printing from Zebra Designer, if so all you need to do is click File/Printer settings/Advanced setup/tick the box marked "Top of Form Backup" OK, and then save your label file.

You can use the driver to send commands to the Printer via any port you have setup to. See Printer Tab and then select Tools, in there you will find a field to send commands.

Hp 1410v won't scan


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP 1410v) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Zebra 105sl - printer does not print correct size


This can happen if you have the wrong dpi setup. For instance the 105sl can be either 203dpi or 300dpi. If your printhead is 300dpi and the label you create is expecting 203dpi, then you will see shrunken label. Your situation doesn't exactly sound like this is the case but it may be worth checking.
