SOURCE: I am trying to clear

Hopefully you can read this. I downloaded entire manual from Zebra. This section is the feed button options to reset communications, calibrate, print configuration & also to do a factory reset. You will need to try the FACTORY reset. Basically while the printer is on you press & hold the feed button till it blinks 4 times in a row then release. It will blink 1 time then pause then it will blink 1-11 & pause then 1-11-111 then pause then finally 1-11-111-1111 then release. Each 1 represents a blink. I would attach the doc but system is too busy to allow right now.

SOURCE: how do I clear the memory on a zebra gk420d?

Download the Seagull scientific GK420 ZPL driver. Version 7.16.

Open the driver file, (Double click on printer icon in printer & faxes folder)

Click Printer, properties, tools, action, reset printer.

Play around with the Seagull driver, it is very useful, you can format memory, read files stored in printer memory, see forms, fonts, images etc.

The forms stored in the G series printers are not cleared by the normal methods which one would use on it's predecessor the 2844 models. The G series will maintain the forms stored in its memory even if you download new firmware, or reset it. This is actually a good thing, as it prevents you from accidentally erasing forms stored in the printer.

SOURCE: We have a Zebra GK420d

You can enter the internal web page and set the printer from there. Or from the printer driver, you can set the darkness and speed there.
Or in your label printer software.

Not printing properly


Printhead should be cleaned with a 90% alcohol solution, however that should not cause blurry print. I've seen some labeling programs that will blur part of your label after the trial period has expired. I would check to see if this happens on test prints also. Do a test print by holding down the button on power up and letting it go after the first blink.

How to printer test page from the display panel zebra zm600


With most Zebra printers, a test page is printed by pressing and holding the PAUSE key while turning on the power. Keep pressing the PAUSE key until the printer completes the POST (power on self-test), then you can let go. A test pattern will begin printing. You can stop the pattern by pressing PAUSE. Turning the printer off & on again is the fastest way to end the test. This is a good page to print because it prints a large black box and it's easy to see if there are any printhead elements not functioning. It's best to use the largest, widest label you have for this test.

Hope that helps !

Dear Sir, Madam, We recently installed our Zebra S600 labelprinter together with the Zebra Designer software. But the labelprinter doesn't print out our labels. We've searched the internet and...


It sounds as though it is printing test labels. Switch of and on again to reset.

If no change then try factory reset.

If it is ever necessary to return the printer configuration to factory default values, press the FEED

key and PAUSE Key at the same time while turning the power on. The default values will remain

active until the printer power is turned off. To save the default values in memory, press the MODE

key four times. The Darken, Position, and Calibrate LEDs will cycle on and then off indicating the
values have been saved.

If this does not work then you have a fualty logic board which write off the printer
