Won't print. The printhead light is flashing and the pause light is also on. I can't get off pause or printhead. I have turned both the computer and printer off and the same thing keeps happening. Just won't print.

First, make sure the printhead lever is pointed straight down. If it is then the sensor or the sensor interrupt is mispositioned. Remove the side cover and observe the opposite end of the rod the printhead lever is attached to. When the printhead is closed and locked the interuptor should be in the center of the U shaped sensor. This tells the printer that the printhead is closed and when you press pause the printer should advance several pages/labels.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My Canon iPF8400S displays a hardware error 03130031-2F4D message. What does it mean?


Hi
"VHT leak detection error of left printhead,
in case of VHT exceeds rated value or falls
below the rated value."
So, error shows left printhead feeding voltage problem. It can be result of fault:
-printhead;
-Carriage relay board;
-flexible cable
-main controller.
Low speed of printing can be when printhead have overrange with it temperature; and when printing, printer makes a pauses to cold printhead. More information you can get from file PRINT INF under SERVICE MODE.
If you are a "ordinary user", looks like you can only try to change left printhead (success not guaranted!).

Z4Mplus test page


Do you want to print out settings? Do you want to print a printhead check? Make sure supplies are loaded and the printer is ready to print. Turn off the printer, press X button, turn on the printer while pressing de X button and release the button after aprox 5 seconds from power on. This will print out the configuration page. Do the same but with the Pause button, and you will get a printhead quality test. Note that the test with Pause button it will stop automaticly only after some 10 printed labels . You will need to restart the printer after that, or press the cancel button several times.

Our Data light keeps flashing and the printer won't print. How do we get the data light to stop flashing so we can use our copier again with our computers?


Sounds like a bad print job stuck in a print spooler.
Turn off copier. Go around to all computers that print to it and open the print queue. delete all print jobs. reboot each PC. Power up copier and see if it clears

Hi There How do you print a test page from the Zebra printer itself which shows print head condition etc We've used teh self test print but are lookign for somethign more detailed etc. many thanks


Printing the "PAUSE" test will print a nice black box that will show white lines or voids for any printhead elements that are not functioning. Turn the printer off, press and hold the PAUSE key while turning on the printer. After 5-6 seconds, let go of PAUSE and let the power up self test finish.

The test label will starting printing. To stop, press PAUSE. This is also usefull for seeing the "parallelism" of the printhead by looking at the lines that print at the begining of each label. Should be the same number of lines on the left as the on the right.

Easiest way to cancel the pattern is to cycle power.

Hope that helps !

Oki 320ml dot matrix printer pauses while printing and the menu light start to flicker.It resumes printing after a while. Why?


The printhead has some thermisters in and it is either actually overheating or a faulty thermister thinks it is overheating. Either way, a new printhead is required.

Want to reset my Zebra 140XiIII back to factory settings?


I resolved the problem by going into the setup program and then exiting and at that point I was prompted to save my changes and one of the options was to load Default settings. Once I chose this I was able to print on the 4X6 labels correctly, before that the configuration was feeding a label and 1/2 and print across two labels.

Zebra 140Xill problem


Whenever you open the printhead, the Pause led will light.

If you hit the Pause button, the printer should go back on-line and resume printing (if you didn't turn it off).

If that doesn't work, try the calibration button (labels will feed out), then the Pause button, then the Feed button.

If you don't want to toss too many labels when you calibrate, the "maximum label length" (or some name like that) can be adjusted through the front panel.

Zebra s600


The factory default setting for the S600 is thermal transfer (ribbon). depending on your OS there is a command that can be echoed to the printer to change the setting to direct transfer (non ribbon). It sounds like your printer thinks is should use a ribbon and in fact you are not using a ribbon. Here is the procedure I use to get the ribbon motor to turn on:
1. start with the printer turned off.
2. open the printhead, retract the ribbon completely onto the supply spool. leave the printhead open.
3. Press and hold the top three buttons (PAUSE, FEED and CANCEL) while turning on the printer. When the botom couple lights turn off release the buttons.
4. When you are left with the power light on and the printhead light blinking reinstall the ribbon and close the printhead.

The printer will autoclaibrate and run a sensor test.
Once complete the take up motor should have turned on and you should be able to use thermal transfer labels and a ribbon.
