Question about Lexmark Z65 InkJet Printer

Open Question

Printing does not have correct repeat spacing after breakdown and reassembly

When printing labels, one got stuck to the feed roll. the printer had to be broken down to access the roll and remove the "stuck" label. after reassembling, when printing, there is a error in the vertical alignment of the print. the repeat is approximately every 2.75" (inches). I tried adjusting the gears within the printer and could achieve a repeating white gap of approximately .03" or an overprint of two lines repeating every 2.75". is it wise to print label sheets on this machine and are there any limitations?

try changing feed rollers. For a quick fix, remove the rubber rollers and flip them inside out. It should work

Don't put used label sheets through a laser printer. Just because you had it working like that doesn't mean it's a good idea. We've had many laser printers in our shop here where the owners did that and eventually the edge of one of the removed label areas will get stuck on something (usually the fixing unit) and completely ruin the fixing unit requiring it to be replaced. Only use "Laser Printer Labels" and never use used sheets.

When I print a label I have to press the feed button to get the label out. How do I get it to push out the entire label without me having to feed and reset the whole time?

Most people I know print addresses from a sheet of labels, which ejects at the end. It sounds like you are printing one address from a continuous roll of labels, and they are so close together that the printer cannot push it out for you without misaligning the next one. I think both systems are designed mainly to print a batch of labels at one time.
If you are printing a batch, it is best to prepare the whole set first and save it as 'data' for printing addresses. For a one off or just a few I would use a sheet of 24 labels (say) with 3 to a row, and 8 rows.
Does this help?

No print out

Hi Bjay,
If the printer cant print at all, you need to calibrate it.This is how you do it.
Make sure the printer is set as the default printer and then:-
  • Turn the printer off.
  • Open the printer and remove the labels roll.
  • Re-load the labels roll again making sure its correctly installed.
  • Press and hold the green feed button and then turn the printer on.
  • Release the button after the first flash of led.
  • Turn the printer off and on again.
  • Now try printing.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

The machine prints about 12 labels and then prints about 25 empty ones, prints 12 and the pattern repeats. Restarted the computer three times and restarted the printer five times, nothing helped.

Hold in the Feed button for 4-5 seconds, which causes the printer to attempt to "Auto-calibrate." If that doesn't solve it, then slide out the Media Sensor (green plastic bar that sticks out over the labels) about 1 inch from all the way in ("in" = left if looking from front). Then press Feed to clear errors. If still get same error, then look for piece of label or ribbon stuck in that error - ok to blow out with canned air. Then try holding in Feed again for 4-5 seconds to Auto-calibrate again.

I have a Zebra Z4M printer. Just put new roll of labels in and they print one, sometimes two and then skip labels in between.

This is a calibration issue. The labels or ribbon are not loaded correctly. If they are, turn the printer off and then back on and the printer will run a calibrate. This should correct it. Once it is complete, you can verify by pressing the feed button and making sure it feeds one label at a time.

Just tell me how to reset printer into factory settings. I have tried it by LPT1 connection and commands sent from command prompt, but doesn't help. The problem is that printer after print request...

To reset the printer.
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.

I-class cutting issues

You need to calibrate the printer using the instructions located in the manual. This should be in area 5.2 of the manual. If you don't have the manual you can download them at this address along with software updates and firmware updates.

Label printers are always finicky. I have strtix printers where I work and they give off wacky errors too.
