Question about Zebra Stripe S600 Thermal Label Printer

Open Question

ZM400 is printing my label smaller that my program is set to.

My label program is set to print to a 1"x3" (h x w) label but when the ZM400 prints the label it comes out small enough to fit on a .75"x1.75" (h x w). I have tried changing drivers on the windows server the print job is coming from but no change. The label is programed in ZPLll . I have used the same label program at many other clients, with out this issue, printing on printer models: 105SL, 110XilllPlus, LP2844 Z.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    We have formatted labels from a Filemaker program for 1.5 x 3 inches but when printing to the Zebra, it cuts off the right edge of the printing and only prints a 2 inch wide label. We have tried everything we can think of as well. It prints fine on a plain paper laser printer when testing.

Sounds like you might be using a bad driver, or the printer is in dump mode.
Try hitting the green button and see if it says exiting dump.
If still having trouble, inside the printer it tells you that if you are having printing trouble:

  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pagessome info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
This process re-reads the label length (so only do it with the labels you want to use in, or it will waste labels until you do it again with those in it) - but I'm suggesting it only because it enters and exits dump mode (which I have read can cause the garbage when you try to print).

You should first make sure the printhead is clean. If the printhead is dirty and you crank up the darkness, you will blow the printhead elements. Open the printer and from the bottom, you will see the printhead, which has a glass like appearance. There is a green strip from one side of the printhead to the other. Take a que tip with some rubbing alcohol and wipe it clean. I would make sure the printer is turned off before doing so. Just to be safe.

SOURCE: Pause between each label.

When you go to file and print the dialogue box comes up and you inptut the amount of copies required, uncheck the Colate box just under the amount of copies required. This will allow each print to come out streamed no paused.

Zm400 media darkness settings get reset after printings lable from SAP


The printer driver settings override the printer settings unless you tell the driver to use the printer settings. You can tell by setting the printer setting and saving it permanently. Print a configuration label. Send a label to the printer. Print another configuration label. Compare the config labels and If it changed, then the driver changed it. Set the driver as above and it will not change when you print.

Prints larger that print preview shows...


Firstly make sure your using the correct drive ZM400 rather than Z4M. if you are using the applications driver make sure of headers and footers sizes and the print area is set correctly. If your using odd sized lables download some new drivers from the Nice Label website, they are far more adjustable that the standard Zebra drivers.

I can't print label from ZM400 PRINTER thru' serial port


There are a number of parameters for the serial port that have to match the pc. i would print out a config page from the printer via the menu, or power on with the cancel key held. then compare it with the settings on the pc. on the config page you should be looking for things like data bits, host control, parity etc.
