SOURCE: Zebra 105se blank labels problem
I would say the roller isn't the problem. I had the same problem on many Zebra printers, but often the calibration helped. Then it could do, when printing
task label is for larger/longer than the label size is set in the printer system
(conflict of software with printer settings after calibration). It could be set too down to bottom in Y axis. Or
it could be in the software settings - as action after print - not sure.
Try to open the printer queue while the label is printed and check if the label has proper number of pages or there's 1 page more. If it is the right number - then the problem is on printer side (recalibrate, reflash it). If the number is about 1 higher, the problem is with settings of the label size (barcode software, printer settings) or action after print on PC side.

Check media settings in the printer driver. Check version of printer driver. Zebra printersuse an internal printer driver with their Zebra Designer software (Zdesigner driver) or a ZUD (Zebra Universal Driver) for other windows applications. These drivers can be downloaded directly from the zebra website.
Alternatively you can download the seagull scientific driver and use that instead. (used with bartender program)
Label skipping occurs if the media dimensions are not specified correctly. The important ones are label height, and media setting for type of media.
Perform a media calibration before you go changing settings. Power on printer, Hold top and bottom buttons in on control panel for 5 seconds, release bottom button only then when printer starts feeding labels release top button. When printer finishes press feed button.

I agree with Dustproof's suggestion regarding setting defaults. After you do that, you will need to set up your firmware and driver for the correct density, speed, media handling (tear-off vs. peel - labels with gaps or black marks) , etc. If your driver does not relfect the same settings that you have saved in the printer's firmware, the driver will send commands to the printer that will change its settings. Lastly, you will need to calibrate the printer to the media that you are using. An easy way to do this on the ZM400 is to set the power on setting in the LCD menu to calibrate and the head close setting to feed, save these settings in memory and then reboot the printer. This way, you will only need to reboot your printer to calibrate when there is a problem or if you change media types. The feed setting on head close will make sure that your label advances to the the next gap or mark if you open the printhead.
If all ese fails, call Zebra tech support (800) 423 0422 and open up a support case. It is possible that the media sensor or media led is not working properly requiring that your printer be sent in for repair.
