Could be that the printer needs to be calibrated or that the Belt on the inside of the printer could have a bad spot on it. Since the belt pulls the ink and label at the same time it hits the bad spot on the bad belt and causes it to stop.

When I try printing, the label sheet comes out without being printed then stops and the "condition/error" lights blink.


First you need to check the blink rate:
If fast this denotes a ribbon error - check ribbon is installed correctly.
If slow this denotes a label sense error - check the sensors are clean and are correctly aligned.

Good morning. my printer will not calibrate. Could you please help me out?


Perform a Manual Calibration:
Perform a media and ribbon sensor calibration to reset the sensitivity of the sensors so the
media and ribbon are detected more accurately. If you change the type of ribbon or media,
your printer may operate better if you perform this calibration.

Calibrate Media and Ribbon Sensors
Use this procedure to adjust the sensitivity of the printer's sensors. In a
printer that has the Thermal Transfer option installed, both media and
ribbon sensors are adjusted. In a Direct Thermal printer (no Thermal
Transfer option installed), only media sensors are adjusted, and the LCD
displays for ribbon do not appear in this procedure.
Important • This procedure must be followed exactly as presented.
All of the steps must be performed even if only one of the sensors
requires adjustment. You may press the left arrow at any step in this
procedure to cancel the procedure.
How to select this parameter:
1. Press ENTER to start the calibration procedure.
The LOAD BACKING/REMOVE RIBBON prompt displays.
2. Open the printhead.
3. Remove approximately 8 in. (203 mm) of labels from the backing,
and pull the media into the printer so that only the backing is between
the media sensors.
4. Remove the ribbon (if used).
5. Close the printhead.
6. Press ENTER.
The message CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT displays.
The printer adjusts the scale (gain) of the signals that it receives from
the media and ribbon sensors. On the sensor profile, this essentially
corresponds to moving the peak of the graph up or down to optimize
the readings for your application.
RELOAD ALL displays.
7. Open the printhead and pull the media forward until a label is
positioned under the media sensor.
8. Reload the media and ribbon (if used).
9. Close the printhead.
10. Press ENTER.
The message CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT displays.
The printer does a calibration; during this process, the printer
determines the label length. To see the new readings on the new scale,
print a sensor profile.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

1.Double check that the ribbon and the labels are routed correctly. 2.Make sure the media guide is holding the labels against the inside of the printer and not moving to the right away from the media sensor. If the labels are sliding to the right as they come out, increase the left side head pressure on top with a flat blade screw driver. Download the user manual at zebra.com .Check the media type and sensor type, and set for thermal transfer if using a ribbon.

I have a Zebra 105 SL, I have the ribbon installed but the printer tells me that the ribbon is out. I've tried changing the ribbon and labels out but as soon as I power it back up and try printing again...


Calibrate the printer from the setup menu.

You'll (1) Load the label backing with the ribbon (2) remove the ribbon - just shove it to the right, out of the way of the ribbon sensor (3) reload the label and ribbon.

The printer will run a number of labels out.

My Z4M Plus printer is not printing the label all the settings are fine no error. The ribbion shows the image but it doesnot print on the Label.


Two possiblities: 1. the darkness is not high enough for the ribbon/label combination. 2. the ribbon is on backwards. if the ribbon is on backwards, you will still see an impression on the ribbon but not on the label. This means all the ink transferred to the printhead which should then be cleaned.

The ink side of the ribbon needs to face down to the label to print so the easiest way to make sure which side has the ink is to use a label or piece of tape and touch it to the ribbon. If no ink comes up in the adhesive then that is the wrong side.

Hope that helps !

Label prints a tiny amount thenstops and displays ribbon error. Have rebooted the system and the printer (on/off).


Ribbon error: Remove the left side cover, and clean the ribbon motor sensor, located behind the plate that holds motors.

One label prints, then red light comes on. We


Solid red light. This indicates the printer is in an error state and will not print until the error is cleared. Check to make sure the printer is not out of labels or out of ribbon if it is a TLP model.
A solid red light will occur if
  • the printer is out of labels
  • the printer is out of ribbon ( TLP models only )
  • the printhead is open, not latched down all the way. Press down on the top cover of the printer to see if the error light clears and goes to green.
  • the ribbon spool is slipping on the ribbon spool holder on TLP models:

"warning Ribbon In" error message


Had the same problem with a ZM400. As stated in the User manual (can be downloaded http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html?FRRBarcodePrinters=6882), warning "Ribbon in" is usually caused by the wrong printing method (thermal direct instead of thermal transfer [which should be selected for ribbbons]). My error disappeared after choosing "thermal transfer" directly on the printer. For network printers this needs to be set by an admin in the network settings for the the printer to solve the problem permanently.
