Zebra S300 printer pauses without printing additional copies

We have a S300 connected to a PC running XP SP2 we have tried to print 100 copies of a label. The printer prints 1 label then the pause light comes on and no further printing. Are there XP drivers available if so where?

Why is the text printing on Zebra LP 2844-Z label incorrectly spaced?


Zebra printers are not really made to print PDF files, if the only option is PDF I'd recommend switching to print on a laser. Also open the PDF and see if they are correct in the original doc

When I send a print job to my Z4MPlus label printer, the label prints but without any ink on it. It is set to Direct-Thermal. What else should I be looing for to correct this issue?


Hi, you can have 3 scenarios here, the print head is faulty, mainboard faulty or darkness set to low, please reset printer to factory default without any lpt/com/usb/network cables connected, turn off and on. try to run Pause test ( turn on printer with pause button pressed for 5 sec and release it)

When I try to print multiple cards, only 2 cards print, the same two all the time, the others don't


It sounds like you might have a job stuck in the print-queue. Best way to check is to start with a clean slate:

1. Shut-down your badge-software, and disconnect the printer from its power source;
2. Navigate to the Windows print center - accessible from the Control Panel as "Printers & Faxes" if Windows-XP, or "Devices and Printers" if Windows 7.
3. Right-click on your Zebra P110i printer, and select "See What's Printing" to open the queue, and see if there are jobs there. If so, click "Printer" on the menu, and then "Cancel all Document".
4. You also should ensure that you don't have any additional instances of the printer drive installed - they would show up as Zebra P110i (Copy 1), ... (Copy 2), etc. This occurs within Windows if you've disconnected the PC-end of the USB cord, and then plugged into a different USB port than originally used. If you have multiple instances, the easiest way to clean this up is to right-click on each sequentially, selecting "Remove this Device". Do this for each one.
5. Now you have a "clean slate". Connect the Zebra printer to the PC's USB, and then re-connect the power. If it doesn't power on, push the power button so it is on.
6. WAIT until Windows recognizes the pritner and you see the device is ready to use.
7. Open your badge software, and select a single card to print, and send it to the printer. If all goes well, this single card will print correctly, then the printer will come back to a ready status. Repeat for a second card, and make sure it prints correctly, and comes back to ready. If all is good, you've likely cleared the issues up, and you can proceed normally. If not, then there may be a physical problem with the printer, where it is not recognizing that a finished card has been ejected and the job is done, or it's not communicating that "done" status back to the host PC.

Hello, I have a problem with Zebra Z4M Plus


Hi, if is the vertical line, its the print head that need to be replaced,
try to clean the print head and try this to confirm:
turn printer off, press PAUSE button and at the same time, power on, don't release the button, please wait until printer LCD screen come on, then release button. It will print the PAUSE test and after few 3-4 prints, u can turn off and on again otherwise printer not ready to print your labels until u restart it. (pause test stops after 10-15 labels). this pause print just show how the print head is and if come with vertical lines, u will need to replace. other idea is (if u can) turn the bar code different position or on vertical way at label format. Thanks.

Printer port configuration and Zebra trouble


When you connect a printer to your pc the operating system adds a virtual port. Your pc will typically have 3 physical usb ports but can have as many virtual ports as you have devices to connect to it.

1: Ensure that your printer has media loaded and is powered up and ready to print. Connect the USB cable. You should get a message on pc screen saying device (printer) found.

Open printer driver ( double click on the zebra printer icon - Start/control panel/printers & Faxes/) Click print test page. If it doesnt print you will see a printer icon with a red question mark.on your toolbar, double click on this. This will bring up a small window showing status of the print job, Click printer/properties/ports. Select the next free usb port and click apply. Drag the print status window so that you can see the message in the status window change from Error print to error Restarting. repeat trying each of your usb ports until printer works. start with the higheat usb with highest number and work your way down.

Problems when replacing defective zebra with another


Here's a manual if you don't already have one:
http://tinyurl.com/yb2rpd4
Loosen the plastic thumbscrews that tighten the printhead down onto the ribbon and media. Perhaps there's too much pressure, not allowing the media to advance.

Also just try to reset it to the factory defaults.
Hold down FEED and PAUSE while you power up. When it's finished resetting, press MODE 4 times to save the settings. I've had to do this quite often with ours.

Good luck! I hope this helps. If so, please leave a rating!
