    How do I modify print code for a 105SL+ 203dpi to print correctly on a 105SL+ 300dpi

    Christine Hughes

      I have some simple strings that I am sending to print to a 105SL+ 203dpi printer

      I have given that code to a partner and we are trying to get it to work on their printer 105SL+300dpi printer.

      When they print using the parameters that I am sending, everything it shrunk and in the corner on the label.

      I tried increasing the Label Length and Print Width parameters but it did not help.

      Unfortunately, the other printer is not local to me so I cannot easily "test" parameter changes; and I am not very familiar with the printer parameters that would help re-adjust the sizing of the print on the label.

       

       

      Here is what I have (written in C# and sending strings to the Printer using an eithernet port connection)

       

              PrinterPort.Send("~JA");

              PrinterPort.Send("~JO^XA^EG^XZ");

              //Start new Label

              PrinterPort.Send("^XA");

              PrinterPort.Send("^PMN^COY,345^MNY^SLT^MTT^MMC^MD0");

              //Set Printer Date/time

              PrinterPort.Send("^ST" + ZebraDateString + ",M");

       

                //Set reference datum, length and width of label  

              PrinterPort.Send("^LH0,0^LL1015^PW0812^PR3^JMA");

       

              //Set DATE Human Readable field of label        [10]

              PrinterPort.Send("^FT55,975^A0B,39,39^FC%^FDDATE=%y/%m/%d^FS");

            //Set TIME Human Readable field of label        [10]

              PrinterPort.Send("^FT120,975^A0B,39,39^FC%^FDTIME=%H:%M^FS");

       

      // There is a number of other Print Line and print barcode type commands here - leaving out for ease of reading and time//

       

              //PQ is the print quantity command for the zebra printer.

              //XZ ends the print format.

              PrinterPort.Send("^PQ" + sNumberOfLabels + ",0,0,Y^XZ");

       

      What I don't know is if there is a Parameter setting on the Printers that I can change or if there is a parameter that I am sending that I need to change.  I realize that the two models have different dots-per-inch capabilities, but I think I should be able to modify my code such that it will print out fulling on the labels for the 300dpi unit. This code is for a 5x4 size label

       

      The Labels print filling out the entire space on my printer (105SL+203dpi) using the above code

      The labels are printing small in the upper corner on the 105SL+ 300dpi using the above code

      Attaching a photos of the labels printed using the above code on the 105SL+ 300dpi

       

      Please would love some help or a point in the right direction. Thank you!
