Argox OS214 Plus FAQ

How to do a media calibration on the OS214 Plus

To perform a media calibration switch off the printer and wait for the two green LED lights to go out. Hold the “Feed” button and switch the printer on. Keep pressing the Feed button until the labels start moving then release. The OS214Plus will then feed a couple of labels. The calibration is complete when it stops feeding labels.

How to reset the Argox OS214 Plus to Factory Defaults

Turn on the printer and wait till both “Ready” indicator and “Power” indicator stay solid green.
Press the “Feed” button for 5 seconds, and the “Ready” indicator and “Power” indicator will go off in order.
(at this step, if the “FEED” button is pressed for 10 seconds, printer will reset first then 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

Does the Argox OS214 Plus use a ribbon to print

The Argox OS214 Plus 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 OS214 Plus come with software

The Argox OS214 Plus comes standard with Bartender UL Label Design Software, Drivers and Printer Utilities.
