When I send a print job to the printer nothing happens. What could be causing this? The Centronics parallel cable and computer both work on other printers of the same model so I know it's not the cable or computer. This model does not have a separate parallel centronics card. It is built into the main logic board. Main logic boards are expensive to replace and I need to be sure of the root cause of the probem before I go replacing the main board.

When connecting Easylabel to a Zebra through the RS232 port, it's very important that the serial settings match between Easylabel and the printer. Easylabel defaults to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, none parity. The Zebra defaults to 9600 baud, 7 data bits, and even parity. This mismatch causes the data light to flash but no print.
Change the printer setting to 8 data bits and none for parity and the baud rate can be whatever but make sure they match from Easylabel to the printer.
1. click on "start" select "run" and type "services.msc" 2. after open services windows select "print spooler" services 3. stop "print spooler" services 4. click on "start" select "run" and type "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\printers" 5. after open the printers folder deleted all the pending print jobs 6. restart the "print spooler" services and try to print now.
when you loaded the driver did you select the correct port? many times I get calls where they hooked upto a certain plug in but chose the wrong port parallel needs the lpt1 port and if there are more then one listed it could be a higher number..lpt2...lpt3. goto the driver in printers and faxes and right click the chose properties then the ports tab and pick the port.
It does sound like you have a memory overload when you send the 2nd print job. Each label is getting sent to the printer and filling up the memory. Make sure you are using the printer resident fonts and not a regular windows font. The windows fonts get sent down as graphics and take up memory. What zebra is saying to do is store the format of the label in the printer memory and then just send down the information that changes. For example if you were printing a UPS label the basic format of the label is the same but things such as the addresses and tracking # would change.
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.
if the data light comes on and nothing prints chances are that the serial settings are set improperly. all of my printers are 25 pin serial, not parallel. i don't have one in front of me but i believe the settings are 19200, 8, 1, none. hope this helps.
