Hi Mohamed,Are you printing

Hi Mohamed,

Are you printing using direct thermal or thermal transfer? If using thermal transfer, are the ribbon and media matched for the smaller labels?

Hi Mohamed,The media isn't

Hi Mohamed,

The media isn't Zebra media, so I can't tell what it is. Have you checked to see if it's direct thermal or thermal transfer media?

Hi Mohamed,Check if the media

Hi Mohamed,

Check if the media is direct thermal by rapidly scraping a key or your nail across the surface a few times.  If the mark looks dark, the media is direct thermal and not correct (see below). 

Also make sure your ZPL has the ^MTT command in it.

Hi Mohamed, We think it might

Hi Mohamed, We think it might be a combination of the ribbon not being right for that media and your print settings.  Can you send us a configuration label?  It can be printed by sending the following command to the printer at any time or by using the driver.  Also, for RFID labels, the 5319 wax ribbon is not a good choice.  We recommend the 2000 or 2100 ribbon styles.

Hi Mohamed, Here are a couple

Hi Mohamed,

Here are a couple of things to try,

1. Increase the toggle pressure on the media (see video).  We think the recommended setting for your print width is 4.

2. Increase the darkness setting to around 25 (~SD25)

3. Use the better ribbon (as indicated in my previous post)

hey dear RobinI'm using 

hey dear Robin

I'm using  Zebra  RZ400 not RT400, my printer does have the toggle pressure I tried adjusting it but it the printing quality remains the same.
and I did increase the darkness but nothing changes.
bigger label the printing is quite okay nothing to complain about but when it comes to small label the issues start to rise.

maybe changing the ribbon will do some good.
I will try and change it and get back to you asap
thanks for your time dear
