Question about Zebra Z4Mplus Label Printer

2 Answers

Printer not calibrating correctly

I have a Zebra Z4Mplus. When I calibrate for either thermal or direct thermal labels, it goes an extra quarter of an inch beyond the end of the label. I've tried manually fixing it, but the problem continues when I print.

Sound like the tear off is set incorrectly, or printer is set to rewind mode.

This will make your printer feed out 2-3 labels each time it is turned on or the head is closed to determine the label length.


SET/UP EXIT

Hit the "+" quite a few times until you get to "MEDIA POWERUP"

Hit SELECT

Use the +/- keys to enter the password (1234)

Hit SELECT - you should see a small - and + button on the screen on either side of NO MOTION (if not, repeat previous steps)

Hit the + sign until you get to CALIBRATION

Hit SELECT to exit MEDIA POWERUP

Hit the + button to go to the next item HEAD CLOSE

Hit SELECT - you should see a small - and + button on the screen on either side of NO MOTION (if not, repeat previous steps)

Hit the + sign until you get to CALIBRATION

Hit SET/UP EXIT (twice) to save changes (permanently)


Open and close the printhead to check to see if it worked!!!

I have Zebra LP 2844-Z printer and the barcodes


Here are 3 suggestions.

1
Check that your label size definition is correct, measure your label height in mm and check that your printer driver settings match.

2
Perform a calibration. How?? when printer is on labels loaded and green light, hold feed key and wait for 2 blinks then release feed key. (If you release it after 1 flash you will print a configuration label)

3
If you are using Zebra Designer, download latest version of Zdesigner V2. Install latest printer driver V2.63. This driver & Zdesigner allows you to calibrate the printer directly from within Zdesigner. Go to File/Printer settings/ advanced options and click calibrate at bottom of page. when printer calibrates then tick the box USE PRINTER SETTINGS and printer will now work properly.

Why is my Zebra printer printing every other label?


The labels you are printing have an extra line feed (a blank line) after the last printed line. Remove them.

Remove any "FormFeed" from the label run, if you are doing a "merge".

During manual calibration of the Z4Mplus the


Let the printer calibrates itself or have a manual calibration in the printer setup. You can also press the keys FEED, PAUSE and CANCEL, turn on the printer and release the keys when feeding the labels.

iN THE DRIVER CHECK THE head TEMPERATURE ISSUE. Most certainly you do not heat enough to do the transfer.
Else your ribbon is not mounted correctly. Zebra has an out inking transfer film

Manual calibration of labels not working, printer not feeding labels correctly


printer manufacturers has different standards depending from the varieties of model and brand of printers for example an epson printer model who is older version is not the same speed print with the recent model likewise with the other brand. Therefore calibration of labels is depending to the version of the printer you are using now.
