You need to check to make sure media and ribbon (if used) are installed correctly. Follow the path on the inside of the door. The sensor is positioned in a place that the media and ribbon can be loaded in the same spot, causing it to not see one or the other.

My zebra printer gives me a message no paper, it does have paper what can i do


If your printer is set for Auto Calibration on power up or when the printhead is closed and the label doesn't calibrate, then check the position of the sensor which is the red light. You didn't say how wide the label is but it may that the sensor is not positioned under the label. If it's out of position, the label won't calibrate.

Hope that helps !

The printer file is recorded in flash memory? The printer have EPL or ZPL firmware? Using ZBI may be a better solution, developed an application that stays in the printer memory and allows many uses.

Zebra S4M prints one label then goes to flashing pause light.


most likely it is a printer driver issue. There's 2 drivers, one for 200dpi and one for 300dpi. Use the one for 200dpi. It could also be the label setting is incorrect. Try running a calibration.

Zebra s4m error condtion paper out


Sounds like you will need to perform the calibration procedure.
when you access the menu system go to advanced menu, the password is 9999, use the keys to navigate to manual calibration and follow the instructions. when it states load backing this is refering to backing paper, so remove the labels from the backing and place in label path. hope this helps

How to reset factory default S4M. I try Pause and feed at starting the printer but it does'nt works. I have a display message: ALERT RIBON OUT.


This may be related to the printing mode you have configured. If you're printing on a thermal paper (direct) and the printer is configured for thermal transfer the printer will notify you that you are out of ribbon.
If you are printing on a regular paper and using a ribbon (thermal transfer) and the printer is configured for direct printing, the printer will notify you that you have a ribbon when you don't need one.

I hope this helps.
