Argox CP-2140EX FAQ
How to do a media calibration on the CP-2140EX
Make sure the media is properly loaded and the top cover of the printer is closed.
Turn off the printer power.
Press and hold the FEED button while turning on the power, until printer motor is activated.
Media Calibration will be performed while the printer automatically feeds the label stock for a certain length; then the printer motor suspends for one second and then prints out configuration/ self-test labels. Release the FEED button as soon as printer starts to print.
How to reset the Argox CP-2140EX to Factory Defaults
Turn on the printer and wait till both “Ready” indicator and “Power” indicator stay solid green.
Press the “FEED” button for 4 seconds, and the “Ready” indicator and “Power” indicator will go off in order.
(at this step, if the “FEED” button is pressed for 8 seconds, printer will reset first >> feed blank labels as media calibration >> and then print configuration/ self-test labels.)
Once “Power” indicator becomes lit again, release the FEED button. “Ready” indicator will then become lit, too. At this moment, the printer has resumed its factory default settings.
Printer will delete those print tasks received but not yet printed.
Does the Argox CP-2140EX use a ribbon to print
The Argox CP-2140EX is both a Thermal Transfer (TT) and Direct Thermal (DT) Label Printer. You can use a ribbon to print on labels for a durable long lasting label or print on thermal paper labels without ribbon. You just need to adjust the print method in the Printers Driver.
Does the Argox CP-2140EX come with software
The Argox CP-2140EX comes standard with Bartender UL Label Design Software, Drivers and Printer Utilities.
