    No, it doesn't solve the problem

  • arun_r Feb 25, 2009

    doesn't make any difference

    Sorry Sir,

    thanks for immediate response.

    following are steps

    I execute Z program by which data is transfered to local drive in tmp.pj file.

    Then we open print program of barone. Here when we open this print program it prints the label in Z4M plus printer. Whereas, from yesterday it is deleting the file itself without printing the label.

    Request your expertise solution on this, Please.

Turn the printer off. Turn it back on again. Restart the computer. Restart SAP. See if that makes a difference.

    Bummer. Thats the normal procedure for doing it. Can you tell if your forms are getting downloaded to the printer?

    How about changing the rating there? I've been a technician for over 15 years on those printers and that is always the first step I gave you. I'm not there to troubleshoot it for you.

    Do you have another printer cable you can try?

    Sounds like the computer thinks the tmp.pj file is printing but it isn't.

    What color is the light on the printer?

    Do you have another printer you can try on that printer?

    I'm concerned if the light isn't on. You should at least be getting a green light to indicate it is on line. Any error with the printer would indicate a flashing light.

    Do you have any way of testing the ac adaptor for currect going to it?

    Scratch the last thread. I was thinking of another model printer.

    Does your printer look like this?

    Is there any messages on the lcd display when it trys to print or when the power is on?

    How long have you had the model?

    I found this on Zebra's website about using it with SAP. Does this help you out?

    I know I have the manual for that printer in storage but I can download another one.

    Do you know how to replace the thermal head on the unit?

    I can also assist you further if you tell me what the lcd display states.

Slow Printing on Zebra Z4M

An unorthodox solution is to install an old driver. Another solution is to use with Codesoft the driver from, and with Zebra Designer, the Zebra Designer driver. If the printer is connected to the serial port, speeds up communication.

Zebra label alignment

you can adjust this in the template file for your price tags. how did you create your basic price tag label? in the zebra label creator? if so, make the adjustment there. if you have a .ejf file for your price tag label, you should be able to open it in notepad and add the height in pixel dots with the "q" or "Q" command from the EPL programming handbook. This can be a little tricky, but with some trial and error, you can get it.

No print with ribbon

Did you put a ribbon in your printer? The zebra does both direct thermal and thermal transfer, but you need a ribbon to get it to print AND have to change the settings to let the printer know that it needs to use the ribbon instead of direct thermal.
