Top of Form Fault error

It means that the printer did not get a good calibration on the label. First make sure the label sensor is in the proper position. Look at the green bar that the label passes underneath and make sure that the white line (the sensor) is positioned over the label. Then calibrate by pressing and holding the FEED key for about 5 seconds until the labels start to feed. After a few labels feed out, the printer should now have a good read on the size of the label and be ready to go.

Hope that Helps !

The printer must be calibrated or the type of sensor is wrong. Verify that the sensor type is correct for your label (gap or black mark) and you can calibrate it by pressing the FEED key for about 5 seconds approximately.

Zebra S600 printer continues calibrating

The factory default settings for the S600 is to auto calibrate every time the printhead is closed and every time the power is cycled. If the media sensor is not positioned correctly for the media you are using the label size will not be detected during a calibration. You mentioned the media has no markings, doe sthe media have a space between the labels? If so, the media sensor may not see the gap in the labels adn therefor is not calibrating properly or not calibrating at all. Check the media sensor position. I have found that the media sensor must be at least 1" from the inner wall of the printer so it doesn't see the edge of the backing in oder to read the size of the labels.

CDT Calibration Error

CTD (not CDT) stands for Color Toner Density Error. Your bad sensor is not on the printer, but on one of the color toners.
