Hex dump mode is mostly used for trouble shooting of the printer. To exit the hex dump mode, enter the Diagnostics menu / Hex
Dump Mode and select ‘Disable’. Exit the menu, save changes and
return to the ‘READY’ mode.

You likely need to use Brady's software to create the label on the PC, and your PC will need the correct printer drivers to communicate with the Brady. The software and drivers should be available from Brady.
Probably the easiest way to turn off the Hex Dump mode would be to reset all printer settings. There should be a reset menu that will allow you to reset the printer to factory defaults. After which it should recognize the new ram and print normally.
If you are using die-cut and reflective media you have to perform a Positioning Calibration that sets the TOF and calculates the label length of the media. This process also calibrates the ribbon sensor on printers equipped with the thermal transfer option. To do this;
1) Turn ‘On’ and enter the media setup parameters in the Media Settings-Menu
2) Load media (and ribbon, if equipped with the thermal transfer option)
3) Calibrate the Media Sensor
Press and hold the FEED key for approximately 4 seconds or until 2-3
labels advance. Upon completion, the ‘Ready’ message will be displayed.
Please ask if you need any further details.
I've got the same issue. This means the brady machine is configured for direct thermal transfer (no labels in the machine). Press setup, use the - and + buttons to scroll to direct transfer. Again, press select and again use the plus or minus button to select thermal transfer (labels in the machine). I must say that the setup menu is tricky. If a password is needed, that's another story. Not impossible, but you have to know how to use the label maker, which I don't . I'm unable to remove the flashing errror message. http://www.zebra.com/content/dam/zebra/manuals/en-us/printer/z-rzseries-ug-en.pdf
Turn printer off. PRESS & HOLD PAUSE & FEED buttons after power goes out. While holding turn printer ON, count to 3 & let go. once printer does its checks press the MODE button 4 times to SAVE. the bottom 3 lights will flash 1 time. This should reset the entire printer including calibration, communications & everything to be like it just came out of the box.
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:
turn off the printer
Hold down the feed button
turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
it will then feed some pagessome info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
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).
Bit of a tough one to know where to start "Printer is not Running"
They usually sit on a bench and do not run anywhere :-)
Is your power supply plugged in?
Is there a green light on the power Supply?
Is the printer turned on?
Does the green feed button cause a label to eject?
If yes to all the above then try a reset
1) Turn printer off. 2) Hold down feed button whilst turning printer on. 3) Let go of the feed button as soon as it starts to flash and then wait. 4) Printer will measure out 4 labels then print out a Hex dump ending with a not to "Push Feed to Exit" 5) Push feed
Follow the above instructions, if you mess around tapping the feed button (not following the above) you can change the printer between line mode and page mode. To swap that back is another storey. David
Clean the paper sensor located at the centre of the mechanism .
Switch ON the printer While holding Feed key down, Printer will enter into self test mode, it will stop after printing self test label.
To take out priter from HEX DUMP mode press feed key for 3 seconds. now printer is in Normal working mode.
Try feeding labels, only one label should advance at a time.
This is the calibration procedure.
