Calibrating the Ribbon and Media Sensors

Printer calibration adjusts the sensitivity of the media and ribbon sensors. It also helps ensure proper alignment of the image being printed and optimal print quality.
Perform calibration in the following situations:
  • You switched to a different size or type of ribbon or media.
  • The printer experiences any of the following issues:
    • skips labels
    • the printed image wanders/drifts either side to side or up and down
    • ribbon is not being detected when it is installed or when it runs out
    • non-continuous labels are being treated as continuous
