Can the alignment warning that appears after a new cartridge is installed be bypassed? (LX800-BravoPro)

Answer

Can the alignment warning that appears after a new cartridge is installed be bypassed? (LX800-BravoPro)

Yes, but print quality may suffer.

The alignment print performs a voltage calibration to make sure just the right amount of ink is spit -- if you don't perform an alignment then too much or too little ink could be spit.

You can only bypass the warning if you set the following driver preferences:

-Ink Cartridge to Color Only or Black Only
-Enable Bi-di Printing = No

Instructions:

Add the text in red into the PT_LABEL.INI file in the following folder:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\PTI\Drivers\Color Label 810 (Latest driver version) -or- 
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3 (older driver versions)

(for the BravoPRO add this into the PT_DPPRO.INI file).

; Bypass the alignment required warning?
; 0 = don't bypass the warning 1= bypass the warning
; NOTES:
; 1. This only works if cartridge setting is set to Color only or Black only
; 2. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK - BYPASSING ALIGNMENT MAY NOT PROVIDE OPTIMUM PRINT QUALITY
; (for best print quality you should align after changing cartridges).
BypassAlignWarning=1

Note: The latest driver version is required for this procedure to work correctly.  The latest driver can be downloaded from our driver download page.
