Trouble Shooting:

Are you having issues with your Wasp Printer: Here are some tips to help:

You can try to reinitialize your printer calibration and settings as per the instructions below.

After you complete the steps below try to print a barcode, if the issue continues please submit a ticket describing the issue in details and the steps to reproduce it.

Power on Utilities

There are three power-on utilities to set up and test printer hardware.

  1. Printer initialization

  2. Ribbon sensor calibration

  3. Gap or black mark sensor calibration

Note: You must run the #2 and #3 utilities after running the #1 to properly setup the printer.

1. Initialization

Printer initialization is used to clear DRAM and restore printer settings to factory defaults. The only one exception is ribbon sensitivity, which will not be restored to default.

  1. Turn the printer power off.

  2. Press and hold the FEED button and then turn on the printer.

  3. The LED will turn orange, blink red 5 times, blink orange 5 times and then blink green 5 times. Release after the first green light blink.

  4. Printer configuration will be restored to defaults as below after initialization.

WARNING: This will reset all saved settings in the printer.

2. Ribbon Sensor Calibration

Note: Please make sure the ribbon is properly installed before doing this calibration.

Please follow the steps below to calibrate the ribbon sensor.

  1. Turn the printer power off.

  2. Press and hold the FEED button then turn on the printer.

  3. The LED will turn orange then blink red 5 times. Release after the 1st red blink and before the 5th .

  4. If the ribbon is properly installed the light will turn green. If it is not it will turn red and blink.

3 Gap/Black Mark Calibration

Gap/black mark sensor sensitivity should be calibrated at the following conditions:

  1. A brand new printer

  2. Change label stock

  3. Printer initialization

Please follow the steps below to calibrate the sensor.

  1. Turn the printer power off.

  2. Press and hold the FEED butt on then turn on the printer.

  3. The LED will turn orange, blink red 5 times and then blink orange 5 times. Release after the 1st orange blink and before the 5th orange blink.

Calibrating the gap/black mark sensor will measure the label length, print the internal configuration and then enter dump mode. The self-test printout can be used to check for dot damage on the print head

and can be used to check printer configurations and available memory space.

*Turn the printer off and back on to resume normal printing. *

Also please verify your windows printer settings as per the instructions from this article.

Note: if you are using a larger label size then adjust the width and height accordingly.
