    The issue appeared to be the Reflective Sensor (which is on a slide) needed moved to the right about 1/4 inch. this seems to have fixed the problem.

You get the error because the printer doesn't see any paper.
There are paper guides that need to be set for the size of the labels being printed. If you are switching from a 4" wide roll or sheet to a 3 1/2" label, you will have to move the slider in about 1/2". You will also have to calibrate the printer when you change label stock. If it won't calibrate, make sure the photoeye is hittint the break between labels. The photoeye is located where you insert the labels into the printhead path.

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.

Changed rolls of labels on Zebra GX 420T and now nothing prints


Were the new labels thermal paper? Thermal printers need specially made paper to work right.

Out of paper error in Zebra 110XiIII plus


There is a small thumb screw under the paper guide that has an adjustable stop to hold the paper. If you load it correctly, you should have one on each side to guide the paper into the printer. Also, the machine has either a roller or a bar to hang the labels on, correct? The bar has an adjustable stop to keep the roll from moving around while you print. You may want to setup the media sensor about 1 cm from the left of the printer to make it less subject to this type of error. They come from the factory very close to the edge of the paper to allow for some card printers to work well out of the box. Most people use labels and this is not necessary. I hope I have given you some helpful information.

Zebra s4m error condtion paper out


Sounds like you will need to perform the calibration procedure.
when you access the menu system go to advanced menu, the password is 9999, use the keys to navigate to manual calibration and follow the instructions. when it states load backing this is refering to backing paper, so remove the labels from the backing and place in label path. hope this helps

Inconsistent printing.


The sensor tag is not well calibrated, press FEED, PAUSE and CANCEL, turn on the printer and release the keys when you move the label to print and let the end be calibrated.

make sure you have selected the correct media in the printer driver. The tracking mode has 3 options, (1) Web Sensing (Cut Labels), (2) Mark Sensing (Black marks on back of liner) and (3) Continuous . In your case select continuous. It sounds like the printer is in the wrong media mode and is feeding labels looking for a mark or gap and when it doesn't find one it flags a media error.
