Calibrate

To better align each label, the mydpi printer learns what length labels are installed. This process is called calibration.

CALIBRATION CHECK

Pressing the top button on mydpi should eject exactly one label. If mydpi ejects more than one label, you must calibrate.

CALIBRATE NEW LABEL SIZE

Each time you install a different label size you should calibrate mydpi. Two ways:

  • Hold the top button until you hear a beep
  • Inside Label LIVE on the Print tab, scroll down to Commands and click Calibrate 
  • Read more about Calibration using Label LIVE 

STUBBORN LABELS

If your label has off-center holes you may need to reposition the mydpi label sensor so the square element looks through the label's hole, keeping the circle element hidden under the backing material.

  • Inside Label LIVE on the Print tab, scroll down to Commands and click Calibrate and then "Black Line / Hole
