Question about Zebra Z4000 BARCODE LABEL PRINTER, 203DPI SERIAL/PARALLEL

Printing issue with Zebra Z4000

I work at a private company out of Portland Oregon and we are having a major issue with our Z4000 label printer. It prints the test labels just fine (emaculatly in fact) and yet when we send data for a label to it the darn thing will acknowledge that data was sent and recieved but then it wont print at all, it just sits there. plus we can set the printer back to defaults but not the factory defaults. We do have the latest drivers for it installed as well. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Assuming you are using a windows machine to process the labels?



    For the printer driver used - have you tried to use a generic txt only printer for this application or are you guys using the drivers with the system?

Good Day

I trust that you are well, which interface are you using (Serial, Parallel or USB) on printer to connect to the computer you printing from?

Have you tried printing a test page from the print driver?

If your not getting an error message I would suspect that the margins have somehow been set beyond the printable area. I don't know what the width on a "Military Shipping Label" is but I've had issues with Zebra label printers printing on the very edges of the labels.

SOURCE: Zebra S600, Recieves data, but does not print

Go into the printer driver and select print a test page, does it print out?
If so then try printing from your label software, it should work, if not then it is your software that is at fault.
If the test page does not print out then check all the settings in the print driver, so they are the same as the physical label.
If non of this helps then go to www.lancerlabels.co.uk and do a live chat to Michael.

SOURCE: An extra, blank label prints from a Zebra 2746e.

Check media settings in the printer driver. Check version of printer driver. Zebra printersuse an internal printer driver with their Zebra Designer software (Zdesigner driver) or a ZUD (Zebra Universal Driver) for other windows applications. These drivers can be downloaded directly from the zebra website.

Alternatively you can download the seagull scientific driver and use that instead. (used with bartender program)

Label skipping occurs if the media dimensions are not specified correctly. The important ones are label height, and media setting for type of media.

Perform a media calibration before you go changing settings. Power on printer, Hold top and bottom buttons in on control panel for 5 seconds, release bottom button only then when printer starts feeding labels release top button. When printer finishes press feed button.

Unfortunately, the guide under the ribbon spindle is the only real solution to this problem. I have the manual, but it's practically useless, and wouldn't have been able to help you regardless of how well it was put together. Try glueing a plastic or metal piece on the guide to make it taller, and make sure the guide is flipped up to keep the labels in.

SOURCE: Hi there! I work with Zebra TLP2844 through

If you are using Bartender, Make sure to use the Seagull Scientific Zebra Driver. The zebra driver works (but not properly) with bartender. Download the driver from Seagull Scientific site. You can also email bartender tech support, their contact details are available from the help screen on the main bartender design screen. I have always found them to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Zebra TLP 2844 stuck intermittently. After pressing green button instead of one labels 2 or 3 labels came out. 2 blank and one printed. Please reply soon.


The feed button is probably just a bit sticky or registering multiple presses...it's likely not a major issue, and it likely has already gone back to normal operation.

I have a Z4000 label printer at my work that im having a few problems with. At first it simply would not printer the last 1/8th of the label image, no matter how high I moved the image in the settings....


For the issue with your ribbons take the spool and wrap a section of it about half way around the pulling portion and use some duct tape to place it on it securely. then take the same portion and rotate it a few times as to wrap the ribbon around it at least three to four times making sure it is snug all the while. that should remedy the spooling tension issue. Sorry I can't help with the printing issue. try updating the driver and if that doesn't work try replacing the printing head as it may be defective now. The Z4000 are old school, ours just broke down as well and we called tech support, the guy laughed when he heard we had one in use and thought I was joking... :(

Unwanted underscores added to 2D barcode scan


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.

Do you know the print speed that you are using? I would slow it down to about 7 ips and adjust the Darkness until you are happy. Some companies want all this speed and the machine cannot do a good job at high speeds (10 ips). If you are not able to over-ride their speed, call them. It will increase your print quality a great deal.
The print speed is the second setting on the menu. Don't forget to save the settings when you are finished (use "Permanent"). Good luck!

Can't print images on zebra z4m printer


Check the "Dithering" setting in the printer driver. Turning "Dithering" on improves graphics but reduces speed of processing.

My printer locks up


go to your printer folder, right click on the z4000 printer, go to properties, tools, and actions. Then reset the printer to factory defaults. Do this right as it starts up. This might fix your problem.
