This may be related to the printing mode you have configured. If you're printing on a thermal paper (direct) and the printer is configured for thermal transfer the printer will notify you that you are out of ribbon.
If you are printing on a regular paper and using a ribbon (thermal transfer) and the printer is configured for direct printing, the printer will notify you that you have a ribbon when you don't need one.

I hope this helps.

How do I factory reset a QL420+ zebra printer?


Hello

Press and hold both the PAUSE key and FEED key while turning the printer power ON.

Release both keys anytime after the first front panel LED turns OFF.

The PAUSE and FEED keys together reset the printer to the default settings. These values

are not saved in EEPROM, but may be saved by sending the ZPL command ^JUS or

saving through the LCD on the deluxe front panel. After entering factory defaults, the

printer will remain in the paused state to let the operator know that the defaults have been

loaded.


good luck, do rate the solution if got help

My Zebra LP 2844 printer is not aligned and the info on the tag prints onto the next tag, how do I fix this?


Calibrate the media that is in the printer. Power the printer on while holding the feed key. When it flashed red, let go. It will calibrate, print a config label, then go into dump. Press the feed key again to exit dump. Once this is complete, your printer should advance only one label at a time when you press the feed key. If this is working as expected, but the labels are not printing right when you print from you application, there is a problem with your format or driver settings.

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 Z4M only feeds a small portion of the label.


You should try a factory reset. Power off the printer. Hold the "pause" and "feed" buttons down while powering up. Allthe lights will blink and when they stop blinking, release the "pause" and "feed" buttons. This will factory reset the printer.

Nothing printing


 

I work mostly with Datamax's.

If you push the feed button does it feed and stop where it's supposed to?

Turn it off, unplugg the network ( about 5' ) turn it back on, plugg in  the network ( clear all jobs from the queu, which sometimes may have jobs in there that are frozen), do an internal test print and try to print a job.

Also try to re-calibrate the media.
