The printer is a monochrome and would need to pass through each color of ribbon.

Why does the label wrap around the bar every other label I print?


possible becouse the tear off position stop the gap on the wrong spot and wen you cut the label, left some label with glue expose, and wen you send other print, the printer make the backfeed and the label go stuck on the white rollar.
go througt the setings to TEAR OFF, and ajust to the front or back, untill hav the best gap/label rest possition and cut proply. don't forget to save (press setup button twice)

Zebra Z4MPlus not printing dark enough


In your label software there should be a setting option for print darkness (I assume it adjusts the head temperature) In ours (bartender) you can get to it when you select 'print' and a window appears with a 'documents properties' button. Click on this and select options and a darkness bar appears which you can adjust. You may also need to slow the label print speed if the darkness adjustment is not enough. I suspect it isn't in the printers best interest to run the print head at maximum darkness/heat so a sensible balance of darkness and print speed is best.
Another, less likely, possibility is an incompatability between the label material or surface finish, and the ribbon type. We did have a problem once whem Homebase changed their price label design and we had to test a load of other ribbon types until we got one that did the job. A chat with the label or ribbon supplier is always usefull, they sent us several sample bits to test.

I created a new label layout in Filemaker pro to print a 4" x 6" label. When I print this label on the Zebra LP 2844 printer it prints fine. If I try to print it on the Z4MPlus it enlarges the print and...


The easiest solution would be to create a new label layout in FileMaker specific for that printer that can be used when printing to that printer which would solve that problem.

The issue with the size being enlarged is most likely with the printer driver and not the FileMaker software so that is where I would look around to see if there is a scaling setting, or some other setting that needs to be corrected in the driver/page setup area for that printer.

I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker 7 expert (and 8, 9, and 10 as well); if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them. If my answer was helpful for you I'd appreciate a 5 thumbs up rating, or a click on the yes this was helpful button. Thank you!

Can i insert Two different coloureds Tag Rols in the Machine


If you put 2 rolls in, the labels will float around, since there is no way to keep each loose end in place.

Zebra Z4MPlus doesnt communicate with PC


Ok,

This machine has a parallel port. Try to print via parallel cable. If it works, consider staying with it. Serial ports are a pain to manage.
If you absolutely have to do it via rs232 though....
Question 1. Has it ever printed?
If yes, Go into Windows Printers and Faxes control and select the Zebra or whatever printer that you are using. Right click on it and you should get a menu that at the bottom say "Properties", select that, then you should get a new window with tabs at the top. You want the tab for "Ports". Select it and you will see all of the different output ports that you can direct your printing. RS232 is a COM port. So start at COM1, check it and try to print. If that doesn't work, go to COM2, etc.

Last resort, If you can't get control via the printer driver program, you will have to try redirecting the print manually (now you will understand why I said to stay with parallel output).
What you have to do is redirect your printing via the dos "mode" command.
Under "Start Menu" goto "Run" and put in "CMD" and click "OK".

This opens a black square window with a cursor blinking. Type in this:
mode com1:9600,n,8,1 (enter)

mode lpt2=com1 (enter)

Tell your program to use LPT2 if you can and see if it works.
By now a parallel cable instead of RS232 should be looking really good.
Good luck!

Printing die cut labels on Zebra Z4Mplus?


Set the printer to transmissivefrom reflective gap sensing.

This will cause the printer to loog for the inter-label gap to tell it where the top of the label is at.
