    The printer dont start. When power is turned on, there is light in the display but it do not write anyting in the display and there are no reaction on buttons. I can only get a reaction if i press and hold "+" and "-" buttons during startup...then it says download firmware. It have not been possible for me to load new software. Does anyone have an idea about if it is a hardward defekt on the main board or it can somehow be solved with software? Thanks

Z6m won't stop feeding

I would venture a guess that the sensor that detects the labels isn't working well - it's supposed to see the difference between label and backing paper and stop at the correct position.

Print configuration from both printers and compare. Print config- Hold cancel button 10 sec. while power on. Check Resolution parameter. 203dpi=8MM Full , 300dpi=12MM Full. Sounds like perhaps they are different dpi.

I have a zebra z6mplus the ribbon keeps breaking

You may have your contrast set too high. If it breaks as it feeds under the printhead (while printing) your contrast may be set too high.
You also could have a ribbon spindle issue. Are both ribbon spindles turning?

Ladder orientation barcode printing bad resolution needs correcting

Try slowing down the speed of the printer. Faster speeds degrade the quality of your print. Try printing your serial (ladder) barcodes at 2-4 inches per sec. It should improve the quality of your format.
