Question about Zebra QL420 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

ZQL420+ is printeing an extra blank label with each good label.

Have a ZQl420 wireless in our whs. When we send print jobs via a queue on an Alpha Server, written in ZPL, the correct label printes then another on is generated each time. A wasteful blank one. Label prints fine when we used cable connected to teklogix term on same printer...no extra
Thanks.

What causes intermittent skipping of labels? In the middle of a print job the printer will spew a blank label then continue on with the print job, I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue.


Check your mailing list. Especially check how many invisible spaces are after a name or address. Suspect extra characters are pushing the mailing list into the next page or label and then it will print an extra blank page or label. Seen this happen when I was a Computer System Administrator and had to fix a similar fault for a client.
There is a reveal code option on most word processors that shows up hidden spaces.

HP C7280 wont print custom size card stock 7.25 x10.25 wont feed or paper jam, however will print when fed on the left side but no guide to keep paper straight. how to correct this issue, Ive cleaned


Your question does not provide all the information necessary to absolutely resolve the issue. By now I suspect you've already resolved the issue or given up. Perhaps someone can use this info.

Need to know: Operating System (Windows 95/98/Vista/XP/7/8), Application (Word, Paint, Firefox, etc), type of job (jpg, pdf, text, etc.)

There is no short answer possible; but, I may be able to help with a generic answer. I can't help on Apple but I suspect it's the same as Windows, (and Unix, Linux, OS2, etc.).

Provided the Printer works proper on normal 8 ½ x 11 stock (print media) then it is not a printer or Queue issue unless it is just confused. As a printer technician I have seen this resolved by rebooting the machine(s) and trying to print again. If that doesn't resolve the issue you need to know:

The application you send the print job from tells the Queue what stock (letter, legal, card, envelope etc) to expect. The Queue, a component of all versions of Windows, is created when the printer is initially installed on the computer. The Queue holds print jobs and then sends them on to the printer when the printer tells the Queue it is ready. Some applications are more robust allowing more options than others. However, printing from inside a browser is frequently sketchy. If you're printing from an application that is different from the one that created it you may face an issue of the printer not getting the correct stock information.

Very Important: First before you attempt to send the print job check the settings in the app to insure your job has the right paper stock selected. Then, as you prepare to send the job from the app to the Queue before you hit the final "Print" button, check the "Paper Source/Size/Media" boxes in the "Printer Properties" to make sure your sending the right stock information. If that doesn't fix it; try to save your project in a format readable by another application and try to print it from the other app.

Note: 1. Print jobs are served to the printer by the Queue one at a time on a FIFO (First In First Out) basis. Sometimes print jobs get hung up in the Queue. A hung print job will block all subsequent jobs until the hung job is cleared. When a print job is sent and nothing happens (no printer activity or error messages on the screen.) look in the System Tray for a printer icon. Open it up and see if there are any jobs hung. If so cancel them and start afresh. This may require a reboot.
2. Print Queues can (rarely) become corrupt and must be deleted and rebuilt.

There are still variables too numerous to mention.

Whew! I've never tried to help resolve this issue in a post. Good Luck!

When I send a document to print, the document seems to get 'stuck' and won't print. The status bar stays at about 50%. Sometimes it prints, sometimes it won't.


It could be the print spooler of your computer that has gotten disabled somehow. Try to refresh the print spooler on your computer by following the steps in this article in the Lexmark website on How to Restart or Reset the Print Spooler in Windows. Once the spooler has started, make sure there are no print jobs stuck in the print queue before sending out a new print job.

HP P1005 PRINT JOB SITS IN QUE, WO'T PRINT


Does it show "Printing" or "Spooling" in the job queue window?

Open the Job queue window, then highlight and cancel the print job. Send a small print job to the printer and make sure that the PC and the printer are communicating.

If the failure re-occurs, then clear the queue again and close it and restart i=the queue.

Make sure,
you firmware is right one for that printer because in most of cases it happens due to wrong firmware and bad ADF kits. so check your ADF kids and if you find them fine the install updated firmware on in.
And put job seperator option always as disabled2168eac.gif
once you done with these all then turn your printer off and turn it back on.

post back if any thing changes and rate all answers.

Extra blank page on ricoch printer


There could be a couple reasons...
  1. "Separator page" or "cover page" options could be enabled. The easiest way to find this option is to print a menu map from your machine. These are managed from the configuration page on the printer display
  2. Your printing from a terminal application, no fix...the terminal apps often send a (page break/ carriage return) at the end of jobs to make sure the page is printed and not held in queue.
  3. Check your settings in Office and print setup window - Word, Excel, etc. all have a "Seperator Page" and "Cover Page" options as well.
Hope this helps.
