Question about Zebra Printer 140-751-00000

Zebra 140Xill problem

When the labels or ribbon ends, after replacing them the printer doesn't recognize that the printhead is closed. I have to turn the printer off and on in order for it to recognize it. When I do that, the print job that it was in middle of printing restarts from the beginning. What can I do, so I don't have to watch and stop the printer before the labels or ribbon end?

Whenever you open the printhead, the Pause led will light.

If you hit the Pause button, the printer should go back on-line and resume printing (if you didn't turn it off).

If that doesn't work, try the calibration button (labels will feed out), then the Pause button, then the Feed button.

If you don't want to toss too many labels when you calibrate, the "maximum label length" (or some name like that) can be adjusted through the front panel.

My zebra printer TLP 3844-z prints one label only, then stops and flashes red. It doesn't print subsequent labels.


There are 2 possible causes for this

1. Printhead not closed - check it is closed properly.

2. Either the ribbon or media is out. This cold also be a sensor problem. But it is worthwhile checking everything is loaded correctly.

Press cancel for 5 seconds while power on to print config. Then check the following parameter.

direct thermal = no ribbon
thermal transfer = ribbon

I CANT LOAD THE RIBBON AND LABELS AND THE PRINTER DOESNT RESPOND


It does look a little strange inside, but here's the manual:
http://tinyurl.com/yb2rpd4

Loading the Media, p 12
Loading the Ribbon, p 17

Be sure the ribbon comes off the spool clockwise, and the labels come off the spool counterclockwise. Look carefully at the pictures in the manual and you should be able to load it ok.
Also be sure to close the printhead (the purple handle that holds down the ribbon and labels) to the 6:00 position when you're done. Then close the covers, turn it on and try it out.

Hope this helps you! If so, please leave a rating.

I have a zebra z6mplus the ribbon keeps breaking


You may have your contrast set too high. If it breaks as it feeds under the printhead (while printing) your contrast may be set too high.
You also could have a ribbon spindle issue. Are both ribbon spindles turning?

Question, when the printer prints is there an image of the data on the ribbon when it spools onto the ribbon takeup spool? If so, the ribbon may be installed backwards. I'm sure you know what you are doing but one must check even the smallest detail when trying to solve these strange problems. If the ribbon is installed correctly and there is no image of the data on the ribbon you may be dealing with a bad printhead and the printhead needs to be replaced.

The factory default setting for the S600 is thermal transfer (ribbon). depending on your OS there is a command that can be echoed to the printer to change the setting to direct transfer (non ribbon). It sounds like your printer thinks is should use a ribbon and in fact you are not using a ribbon. Here is the procedure I use to get the ribbon motor to turn on:
1. start with the printer turned off.
2. open the printhead, retract the ribbon completely onto the supply spool. leave the printhead open.
3. Press and hold the top three buttons (PAUSE, FEED and CANCEL) while turning on the printer. When the botom couple lights turn off release the buttons.
4. When you are left with the power light on and the printhead light blinking reinstall the ribbon and close the printhead.

The printer will autoclaibrate and run a sensor test.
Once complete the take up motor should have turned on and you should be able to use thermal transfer labels and a ribbon.
