Question about Zebra Z4M Printer

1 Answer

Z4M printer suddenly running in reverse

Printer was working fine. Went to print second batch of labels of the day and the printer started running in reverse. We haven't touched the machine, changed labels or ribbon between the label batches. I have had everything on & off, disconected the printer cable but it still mostly runs the wrong way. Ocassionally when first turned on it will feed in the right direction a couple of labels then go back to reverse.

    Thanks for this info, a new power supply board is a bit pricey so I will try for a second hand machine.

The problem is in the power supply board and must be replaced. What fails is the chip stepper motor driver.

The printer will print one label correctly, then feed out a blank one. when the next label is printed, the printer reverse feeds the blank label into the printer to print the next one, but not far enough...


This sounds like a size issue, meaning that your label has too many lines and that kicks to the "next page".

Look for too many line items on first label.

There is a tensioner that holds the printhead assembly down, slide it more to the right. It sounds like you just need a bit more pressure on the right hand side of the printhead.

Z4m printer will miss labels in jobs. I've saved the job in the spooler and if I resend the jobs the blank labels will print out so I know the job is good. Any suggestions welcome.


Check the label size is set correctly in the application. Try using a driver from Nice Label or Seagull Scientific websites to suit Z4M (Not Z4M Plus). Recalibrate the printer and try again. Remember to setup the driver correctly because the driver will override the printer settings.

My Zebra Z4m plus start to print in middle of the label,but suddenly to appear next message. error de papel.and stop the machine and the print on the label is in wrong positions


The label is not calibrated. Press keys FEED, PAUSE and CANCEL, turn the printer and release the keys when making the labels. Also verify that the type of material is NOT CONTINUOUS.

Can't print images on zebra z4m printer


Check the "Dithering" setting in the printer driver. Turning "Dithering" on improves graphics but reduces speed of processing.

Slow Printing on Zebra Z4M


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