Zebra Z4m calibration doesn't work with different labels

Hi,
I switched from 5" labels to 18mm labels, but calibration doesn't work. It "thinks" labels are still 5" in lenght, and it spits out about 7 blank 18mm labels an then actually prints one (andt the next one as well)
I tried setting MEDIA POWER UP ans HAED CLOSE settings to 'calibrate'  but it seems to have no effect.

You need to run the internal media sensor calibration setup that is built into the menu. This can take a few minutes but will solve this problem. The machine needs to be setup for the media you are running. This is no fun if you have to change a lot during a day and each media type has diferent qualities. It ususually happens when you are using labels from one manufacturer and then switch to a diferent brand. The backing material has diferent characteristics that the machine needs to be setup to be able to handle.

Your problem is that you are getting pretty close to the minimum size label. Download new drivers from the Nice Label website or Seagull Scientific website as they will handle small labels better than the standard Zebra drivers - the driver will require setting for the small label

some labels are hard to calibrate, nee to calibrate the sensors with manual calibration.
1} go to the MEDIA AND RIBBON CALIBRATION,
2}take 2 or 3 labels from the base paber, load the way to the based paper stay unther the sensors, 3}close printhead.
4} press ok.
5} Move the ribbon out from sensors and close the printhead.
6) press ok
7) wen printer ask RELOAD ALL, load the labels correcly and the ribbon, close the printhead and the top door, and press ok. The printer run the calibration it self.

My zebra printer wont line up the labels and keeps saying paper out


run the sensor profile, check if check the gap, run manual calibration, if ask for reload media, please take 3 or 4 labels from the label rolar, put through the sensors (check if ribbon(if use) is install on the correct spots and don't stop the sensors to read the gaps) and run the manual calibration.

I have a Zebra Z4M printer. Just put new roll of labels in and they print one, sometimes two and then skip labels in between.


This is a calibration issue. The labels or ribbon are not loaded correctly. If they are, turn the printer off and then back on and the printer will run a calibrate. This should correct it. Once it is complete, you can verify by pressing the feed button and making sure it feeds one label at a time.

Printing half the vertical, no matter what size label in use.


Some drivers adjust the length of the print area, regardless of the length of the label. Do calibrate the label and also verifies that the margins are zero.

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

My Zebra z4m plus


in the setup menu there is an option to choose what the machine does on powerup and head close. Yours is probably set to calibrate. Just change that setting to "none". Same thing with the pausing. there is a setting to pause after printing each label. Just change that option.
