The printer driver settings override the printer settings unless you tell the driver to use the printer settings. You can tell by setting the printer setting and saving it permanently. Print a configuration label. Send a label to the printer. Print another configuration label. Compare the config labels and If it changed, then the driver changed it. Set the driver as above and it will not change when you print.

SOURCE: I am having problems with Zebra printer MDL#ZM400

Try entering the Menu system and exiting, whilst exiting and instead of saving permanent, cycle around to load defaults. once you have done that make sure the settings are as you need such as Thermal Transfer etc and save permanent. You won't have a problem after that. If you do I would be checking the page setup in the software to make sure it fits the lables.

SOURCE: For ZM400 and S4M, Has anyone had any luck with

You can try this: on the S4M, you can press the Menu key to go into setup mode. Under password level 3 parameters,there is a setting for ribbon which by default is set to Yes thermal trans. If you set it to No for direct thermal mode, this will in effect turn off the ribbon sensor. The printer won't stop now if it runs out of ribbon but usually you are there when printing to see that the ribbon is running out.

On other Zebras, you can turn down the sensitivity of the RIBBON LED sensor but the S4M doesn't have that setting.

See if that helps.

Will not print onto the label. but can see it on the black ribbon reel.


Perhaps your darkness is set too low, or your labels are not coated to accept thermal transfer printing. Let me know if this helps!

I have a Zebra 170Xi II & Zebra 170Xi III plus and the problems is that they print really good at low speed but in high speed it doesn't print almost anything. Already set the darkness of the printer...


if you increse the speed, you need the incrise the darkness, clead the printhead and the white rollar, you can improve the quality if use the correct ribbon and the relation between the ribbon and the paper of the lables are the best. chech with your Media suplier. The problem with the increse speed and the darkness can damage the printhead, and they very expensive.

Prints larger that print preview shows...


Firstly make sure your using the correct drive ZM400 rather than Z4M. if you are using the applications driver make sure of headers and footers sizes and the print area is set correctly. If your using odd sized lables download some new drivers from the Nice Label website, they are far more adjustable that the standard Zebra drivers.

I can't print to my printer zm400


When you install the driver, do you get a test print from the driver setup? If the data light blinks, this is at least a sign that something is coming and the printer is aware of it. If you feel knowledgeable of the printer to do a Media Sensor setup through the menu, you can reset the printer to Factory Default settings. Getting any print from the machine is a plus. Are you using the Zebra drivers? If yes, you can try printing from Notepad.

Trying to use a Zebra ZTC ZM400 with an AS400


I was having same issue printing from our AS400's as well.

Issues was resolved by installing latest Zebra ZM400 firmware.

We were on ver V53.16.3Z but upgrading to V53.16.4Z seems to have resolved it.

Good luck.

Will not print on all four lables, and does not print in the same place each time.


for starters you need to calibrate your printer.

Note: If printing in Direct Thermal Mode, default the printer first (4 flashes).

1. Load the labels and ribbon (if used) and close the printer
2. Turn on the printer power.
3. Allow the printer to feed or error out.
4. Press and hold the feed button until the green status LED flashes once, then twice. Release the feed button.
6. The printer will set the media sensor for the label backing being used and then automatically feed until a label is positioned at the printhead.
7. A profile of the media sensor settings (similar to the example in Figure 1) will print. Upon completion, the printer will save the new settings in memory and the printer is ready for normal operation.
8. Press the feed button. One entire blank label will feed. If this does not happen, try defaulting (Hold the FEED button until it flashes 4 times)
