Question about Zebra Z4Mplus Label Printer

Unwanted underscores added to 2D barcode scan

I have 2 Zebra 4Mplus printers set up on a nextwork. One prints GM labels ok. The other adds underscores to separate the data in the barcode scan (PDF 417 2D barcode). Both printers are using the same software. How do I get the one printer to stop adding the underscores?

Zebra tech said it was a software issue. The software company said it was a printer issue. Issue was unresolved.

Are they the same barcode type?
what is the font set at? using Arial or other fonts can make the software send a more complicated image. use the Zebra Triuverate font. this keeps it simple. also, do a print out of the settings on each printer and compare them line by line. change the settings to match the printer that is printing correctly.

Testimonial: "Thanks. Printing out the settings helped me realize it was not a printer issue. It was a software issue. Installing older version of software fixed it"

Check the emulation on the printer not running correctly (ZPL or Zpl II?)

Zebra 105SE printer will print text and images just fine, but will not print bar codes from any software including Bartender or TechnoRiverStudio. If i export the label as an image I can print it just...


Bartender is a pretty good label software package - strange that you're having problems with a barcode. Are you by any chance trying to print a 2D barcode such as Datamatrix ? If that's true, then the problem is that the datamatrix barcode is not a resident barcode in the firmware version of that printer which is an older model. There should be a choice in bartender, in the properties of the barcode field that allows you to send the barcode as an image or graphic. The barcode will then print.

If you're trying to print a linear barcode (C39 or C128 or UPC for example) and it they won't print with the steps you have taken, then something is definetly wrong. Another option would be to take your label format and print-to-file instead of print-to-printer. There should be an option on the print screen for this. By then opening the file, the ZPL (Zebra's programming language) can then be examined to see exactly what is being sent to the printer.

Hope this helps !

Ladder orientation barcode printing bad resolution needs correcting


Try slowing down the speed of the printer. Faster speeds degrade the quality of your print. Try printing your serial (ladder) barcodes at 2-4 inches per sec. It should improve the quality of your format.

Zebra S4M Lable Printer Not Scanning


You might want to check the barcode ratio, bar width, printer speed and printer darkness. I am assuming that you are creating the barcode in some sort of label design package, correct? You either need wider bars, or make sure you have enough quiet zone on both sides of the barcode, so shrinking it might be the solution as well.
