Question about Zebra Z4M Printer

Open Question

Zebra z4m cuts part of the label off

When we go to print tags, some of them will print normal but either at the beginning or the end of a run it will cut off half of the label including the barcode. Is there some kind of adjustment that we can make to prevent this? We have tried everything we could think of with no luck.

    Hi,



    I am also using a Zebra Z4M printer. When i am printing the labels, the last character of the wording got trimmed off/cut off almost 50% of the character. The weird thing is it only happened for the last character!

SOURCE: Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Turn off the printer, then hold down the feed button while you turn it on again. After the configuration label prints, turn the printer off and on again,then try to print your labels.

If the barcodes still don't print, make sure they don't extand past the top, bottom or side of the label. If you software allows you to "clear the label cache" or "re-image the enitre label", try that.

SOURCE: 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.

Zebra Z4M only feeds a small portion of the label.


You should try a factory reset. Power off the printer. Hold the "pause" and "feed" buttons down while powering up. Allthe lights will blink and when they stop blinking, release the "pause" and "feed" buttons. This will factory reset the 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.

Yasemin, the most practical solution is to design your label on a software like a label matrix or zebra designer and print to a file and have the ZPL codes. Roberto Martinez Mexico bartech9@yahoo.com.mx

Inconsistent printing.


The sensor tag is not well calibrated, press FEED, PAUSE and CANCEL, turn on the printer and release the keys when you move the label to print and let the end be calibrated.
