When printing in page mode, the printer feeds an extra of four blank labels between every two labels to print.
When I use the feed button, the printer only issues one label.
When I open the printer to put in a new roll of labels and then close the cover, the printer also feeds four blank labels.

Re: Printing in page mode feeds extra blanc labels
you firmware is right one for that printer because in most of cases it happens due to wrong firmware and bad ADF kits. so check your ADF kids and if you find them fine the install updated firmware on in.
And put job seperator option always as disabled
once you done with these all then turn your printer off and turn it back on.

You should adjust the shutter as well to the size of the paper. Another thing is you can manually select the paper type under the printer settings. Go to Printers and Faxes > Properties of your default printer and manually select the paper type.
You may need to calibrate the printer for size of the label installed in the printer. To do that follow the instructions below but, before you do that MAKE SURE that the labels loaded in the printer match the size you expect to print.
Make sure that printer power is off. Press and hold the feed button and then turn the printer on. When the status light blinks, release the feed button.
The printer advances the media to measure and verify the length of individual labels or tags. The printer then prints a status summary and remains in diagnostic mode.
If pressing the FEED key advances just one label at a time then the printer works ok by itself. The printer will only do what it's told to do so so if extra labels feed at the end of printing, then you have to look at the printer driver or the label format for something adding the extra labels.
To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps. 1. turn the power off 2. hold the feed button down 3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button. 4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button. 5. turn the power off. 6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.
Check media settings in the printer driver. Check version of printer driver. Zebra printersuse an internal printer driver with their Zebra Designer software (Zdesigner driver) or a ZUD (Zebra Universal Driver) for other windows applications. These drivers can be downloaded directly from the zebra website.
Alternatively you can download the seagull scientific driver and use that instead. (used with bartender program)
Label skipping occurs if the media dimensions are not specified correctly. The important ones are label height, and media setting for type of media.
Perform a media calibration before you go changing settings. Power on printer, Hold top and bottom buttons in on control panel for 5 seconds, release bottom button only then when printer starts feeding labels release top button. When printer finishes press feed button.
First thing to try is a reset of the printer.
1) Turn printer off.
2) Hold down feed button whilst turning printer on.
3) Let go of the feed button as soon as it starts to flash and then wait.
4) Printer will measure out 4 labels then print out a Hex dump ending with a not to "Push Feed to Exit"
5) Push feed
Follow the above instructions, if you mess around tapping the feed button (not following the above) you can change the printer between line mode and page mode. To swap that back is another storey.
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)
The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode: Turn printer power off. Hold the feed button while turning printer power on. When the light starts flashing, release the feed button. When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button. When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button. When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed. Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.
This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.
It sounds like it needs to be re gapped. Try this: 1. Make sure that printer power is off. 2. Press and hold the feed button. 3. Turn printer power on. 4. When the status light blinks, release the feed button. 5. The printer advances the media to measure and verify the length of individual labels or tags. The printer then prints a status summary and remains in diagnostic dump mode. 6. To begin normal operation, tap the feed button. The printer prints "out of DUMP" and advances a label.
