Firstly the length of the label must be correctly set.
- When activation forward wait on parameter, you can adjust the feed value.
- else you can adjust the feed value in the driver.

Printer will not advance to tear after print


I can't give the exact solution for this printer, however, I use the Epson POS thermal printer and here was our solution. In Windows 7 go to Devices and Printers. Click on Printer Properties. Then see if you see a tab that says Document Settings. Under that setting click on Paper Source. You should now see several options; I have mine set on Document(Feed, No Cut). There are other options but we prefer to tear ours off. You can chose Document(Feed, Cut) and it should advance then cut the paper for you.

How do i adjust the printer to the tear off position


Print a config label by holding the cancel button and powering on 15seconds. Check print mode = tear off. If it is in rewind mode the label stops under the print head and does not backfeed before printing. Tear off pushes the perf to the tear bar and backfeeds before printing.

use result to change value of input using line key once set press feed key to set.

To change label start position use the pitch menu.

Hi Brian,
When the last label printed is still under the printhead, that means the printer is in "rewind mode". There should be an option for "tear off" mode in the printer driver. This is the mode that pushes the last label printed out to the tear bar. The printer will then "backfeed" when printing the next label. Peel off mode is used if you want to print a label and have it "peeled" off the liner so that you can just pick up the label off the liner and apply it. That takes the rewind option to be installed.
Watch out though, if you are using a label software package, there might be a setting in the label format setup for "tear off" which usually overrides the settings in the printer.

Hope that helps !

Everytime I print a label it stops short of the


This is an easy printer to fix since there is only one control button. Turn the printer off. Hold the green feed key down while turning the printer on; once the red light begins flashing, let go of the feed button. This will do three things: the printer will calibrate with the installed media, it will print a configuration label and the printer will go into dump mode. Press the feed key again. One more label will come out with with the words "Out of Dump" printed at the top. If the printer still fails to print, remove the ribbon and try the same procedure with direct thermal labels (UPS or FedEx). From there, consult the manual for more troubleshooting tips.

Zebra QL420 portable printer label gets misaligned frequently


There are two things to consider here: 1) Is the printer set to the correct media handling setting? Look in the manual for the terms BAR-SENSE and GAP-SENSE and make sure that you have sent the correct command to the printer. 2) There is a TOF or Top of Form setting that you can send to the printer to align the perforation of the labels with the tear bar. Look for the syntax in the manual, which is free for download at zebra.com, and make sure that your perfs line up with your tear bar.

Unable to align printer to start at top of a new label; where can I download a manual for this printer (Z4M plus) thank you - barry


Put in a new roll of labels. Calibrate the printer. Make sure the program you are using is set for the size label you are using. If it calibrates properly, you should end up with the tear off perforation at the edge of the feed out area.

Label not advancing to tear-off perforation


Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels:
1. Make sure that printer power is off.
2. Press and hold the feed button.
3. Turn printer power on.
4. When the status light blinks, release
the feed button.
5. The printer advances the media to
measure and verify the length of
individual labels or tags. The printer
then prints a status summary and
remains in diagnostic dump mode.
6. To begin normal operation, tap the
feed button. The printer prints "out of
DUMP" and advances a label.

Extra feed


The label sensors might not be getting a strong signal as the labels pass between them.
Make sure the labels are loaded all the way to the left (as viewed fron the front) and make sure the label guide (near the back of the printer) is set to keep the labels from wandering away from the sensor.

There is a pair of infrared emiter and detector located above and below the label path. As label pass between, these measure the leading and trailing edges of each label.

If you haven't already done so, calibrate the printer, by using the "Online", "Calibrate", "Online" buttons. Hit the "Feed" button a few times to see if the labels feed consistantly. It might take to "Feeds" to get each out, if they stop at both the start of the printhead and again at the tear bar. Adjusting the labels and calibrating fixes most problems. If the "Feed" button still doesn't feed just one label and the printer still skips labels, you'll need to adjust the label gap sensors. This can be a bit tricky if your labels are very narrow.

There should be a small pcb on a shaft under the label path. Note its current location, then slide it left or right to get a better signal, and try the feed button again. On my Zebras, the sensor is not in the middle of the PCB. Look for a small metal "can" on the PCB and center that.

The upper sensor is more difficult to adjust, but if you manage to spot a very small PCB above the labels, it will be easier to line these up.
