Question about Zebra S4M Thermal Label Printer
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.

the printer power ON.
Release both keys anytime after the first front panel LED
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

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.
