Installing a GoDex DT4 Printer

 

Download & Install your Printer Drivers:

Download the appropriate driver from below:

DT4x (all dark-colored housing)
http://www.godexintl.com/us/product/type/Download/5038 

DT4 (light-colored body with dark lid)
http://www.godexintl.com/global/Download/downloads/Download/5029

Run through the driver install process.

Configure your Labels:

Plug the printer in

Next you'll need to assign the proper label size

  1. On your computer, open the "Devices and Printers" screen.
  2. Right click on the GoDex printer and select "Printer Properties."
  3. On the "General" tab of the printer properties window select "Preferences."
  4. In the first tab, at the top, select the "NEW" button and input 3” for the width and 2” for the height. (Name it whatever you’d like - Ex: Elexio Check-In)
  5. Click OK
  6. Go to the "Stock" tab and under Media Handling > Post Print Action, select CUT from the first drop down box.
  7. In the next drop down that appears, select "After every label," or "After Job." (We recommend "After Job" as this option results in a single strip of labels per check in and saves time). 
  8. Click APPLY and OK.
  9. Click OK to close Properties window and save settings

IMPORTANT: After completing the above...

  1. Right click on the GoDex printer and select "Printer Properties."
  2. Select the "Advanced" tab and click the "Printing Defaults" button.
  3. Follow steps 4-9 from above

 

Calibrate the Printer

  • Make sure you have labels in the printer and inserted partway into the exit slot
  • Power the printer off
  • Close the lid
  • Hold the yellow advance feed button on the lid with the power off
  • While holding the button turn the power on to the printer
  • Wait until the printer beeps three times and the light flashes red then release the button
  • The printer will spit out some information on the labels

Go back to the printer properties box and click the "Print Test Page" button

When the test page prints you will hear a cutting noise and the label will fall out of the printer (NOTE the correct orientation of the label is the upper left corner with some of the left and top missing or cut off)

 

If the Labels are not cutting correctly

  • Go to the Printer Properties
  • then go to the "Advanced" tab and then 'Printer Defaults"
  • On the Page setup tab, make sure that the Stock is set to 3x2
  • Then go to the "Stock" tab and to the "Position Adjustments" at the bottom
  • Uncheck the box that says "Use current Printer settings" and then in the Stop position, put in 1.06  and Apply

You are all set to print labels from ELEXIO Check-In!

 

To Network the DT4 follow the below:

  1. Download the NetSetting software under the DT Series heading by visiting the following site:

              http://www.godexintl.com/global/download/downloads/Download/1289 

  1. Install and run NetSetting on a computer on the same network as the printer.
  2. When the program launches, click on the IP tab (it is the second tab).
  3. Enter the password: 1111
  4. Set the network settings for the printer statically.
  5. After you make the appropriate changes for your network in this program, click SET and that will apply the settings to the printer.
  6. Setup the printer on your tablet and set it as the default printer.
  7. Select the printer in the Elexio Check-In system options.
