Thermal Printer Problem

I presently have a Zebra Z6M 203 DPI Thermal Printer.I also have an original copy of NiceLabel Software SE.When I install NiceLabel, it says I need to go to the Nicelabel web-site and download a "NiceDriver" for the Zebra Z6M 203 DPI Themral Printer. I select the proper version and I download, but when I go back into the Nicelabel program, a window pops up and states"This software version supports only a limited range of Printers (Genco). No such printer is installed on the system. Please install the approriate printer driver.If the printer driver is not included with the software, click the download Printer Drivers Button and follow onscreen instructions.Can anyone help me so I can use NiceLabel with my Zebra Z6M 203 dpi Thermal Printer.

    Did you just download the drivers or did you install them too?

    Have you rebooted since installing the drivers?

Why bother with a new driver?
Use any driver with a resolution of 203 dpi and you can print.
The software cannot use new drivers probably. Or its a way to have you buy the latest version

How do i fix the error in Zebra ZM600 printer and error is ERROR CONDITION INVALID HEAD

You may have problem with your Printhead cable or Logic, I'd start by re-seating the cable on both ends. If that does not work I'd replace the PH as it will wear out eventually anyway if it is not the problem you can keep it as a spare. The ZM600 will take both a 203 and 300 dpi Printhead make sure you get the same one you installed currently.

Zebra 105sl printer labels print too small

There are 3 different DPI Printheads for Zebra printers if you print a label set up for a 200 DPI Printhead on a printer with a 300 DPI Printhead installed it will be about 66% of the size.

I want to change the printer ribbon on Zebra s600 203 dpi, is there a way it will rewind existing ribbon off?

Thermal printers don't use ribbons or ink. They transfer images/text with heat on to special thermal paper.

Can we make 300 dpi Zebra 105 SL printer to print on label expecting 203 DPI, Any configuration setting?

Krishan, sorry there are no settings that will allow you to do this on the 105SL. If the printer code expecting a 203 DPI printhead and you have a 300 DPI Printer then your label will print out much smaller then normal.

If you are printing labels with a label printing package (such as Seagull Bartender for Windows) then all you need to do is to install the proper printer driver. If you have your printer attached to a system that is sending "straight" ZPL (Zebra Printing Language Code) then your out of luck.

Hope this helps

Not sure if this is 100% fixed but the teklynx had two zebra printers listed, one 200 dpi and another 203 dpi, when switched to 203 dpi the barcodes came back. The labels prompt for conversion to 203 dpi and aren't perfect but close enough to use.

Labels enlarged

if they are diferent resolutions, ex. you change from 200 dpi to 300 dpi, you need to change something inside the printer like the gears (just reversing the platten roller gear and the the withe gera on the motor) and you are printing on 300 dpi with very small fontes.

Change printhead

You would need to replace the printhead and the main logic board.

You proposed change is not feasible.
