Question about Zebra S4M Thermal Label Printer

2 Answers

Nothing printing S4M appears to receive data, but nothing prints. We see the print job arrive in the queue, then disappear from the queue. The display window on the front of the printer changes from showing the version to showing DATA..., then switches back again. It appears that the data is hitting the printer and vanishing straight into the bit bucket. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I work with Zebra printer on a daily basis and it sounds like you will need to restore the printer to the factory defaults. However if you choose to do this you will remove the network settings, assuming your print has a NIC and you are using it as a network printer. Record the network settings before you default the printer so you have them on hand to re-enter the settings. You will need to enter the Advanced Setup 3 to load the defaults, Once the defaults are reloaded go back into Advanced Setup 3 to re-enter the network settings. This should solve you problem.

I work mostly with Datamax's.

If you push the feed button does it feed and stop where it's supposed to?

Turn it off, unplugg the network ( about 5' ) turn it back on, plugg in  the network ( clear all jobs from the queu, which sometimes may have jobs in there that are frozen), do an internal test print and try to print a job.

Also try to re-calibrate the media.

Problem Print job does not print; No Lexmark job status window Solution What you will see


  • The Windows print queue spools the print job.
  • The print queue icon appears in the systray or notification area.
  • The print queue icon disappears as if the print job has successfully been sent to the printer.
  • The print job disappears and does not print.
  • No Lexmark job status window appears to indicate a communication problem.
  • No other communication errors. This issue is most likely due to a corrupt device mode registry entry from another printer that was installed and used in the past.
Or
  • You do see the job status window and you do not see any alerts or communication errors, yet still nothing gets printed

What to do

A confirmed cause must be established before a resolution can be achieved.
To do this:

  1. download a diagnosis tool that will help determine the cause of the printing issue.
    IMPORTANT: Again, this tool is only to be used in cases where there is no communication error message from the Lexmark job status window and the job spools quickly through the Windows spooler, yet nothing prints.
  2. Select an easy-to-find Save location, such as your Windows Desktop.
  3. Double-click on the delserDevMode.exe file.
  4. Accept the License Agreement. After the file is executed, it saves devmode.txt to your root directory (e.g., C:\devmode.tx.

Zebra S4M Printer doesn't print


The fact that the Data message is displayed, means it is 'seeing' something. You may be losing the command character at the beginning that would cause the machine to ignore the rest of your code. If this is the first time you have attempted to use the serial port, you may have a setting incorrectly set. You need to match your Host exactly or the data may be framed incorrectly. The old standard was to send your data 8 bits, 1 stop-bit and no parity. Try Xon-Xoff with hardware handshaking too. I hope this helps.

Try disabling the print queue. In windows 2000 go to printers, then properties of the canon printer, advanced and select "Print directly on the printer".
Also try printing from another computer and replacing the interface cables.
