Label Printer skipping Labels Argox

When your Barcode Label Printer starts Skipping Labels while printing, its due to incorrect media calibration or a faulty media sensor. Find your model of Argox printer below and follow the instructions on how to calibrate.

If you have done the media calibration on your printer and the problem persists then it is likely caused by a dirty or faulty media sensor. Contact us for further help on replacing or cleaning the sensors.

  1. Make sure the media is properly loaded and the top cover of the printer is closed.
  2. Turn off the printer power.
  3. Press and hold the feed button while turning on the power, until the printing motor is activated.
  4. Media calibration is performed while the printer automatically
    feeds the label stock for a certain length, the printing motor
    suspends for one second and then prints out a configuration
    profile. Release the feed button as soon as printer starts to
    print.
  5. The profile includes firmware version, ROM checksum,
    RS-232, thermal transfer/direct thermal settings, hardware
    configuration, and font types.
  6. At PPLB emulation, the printer enters character dump mode.
    To exit from dump mode, press the feed button again. (If you
    accidentally print the label without exiting from dump mode in
    advance, you need to turn on the printer or press feed button
    again to print normally.)
