Question about Zebra Z4Mplus Label Printer

1 Answer

Unable to reset the printer, even to reset the password

I´m giving suppor to a Zebra Z4M Plus printer, and I find that when I try to reset the printer to the default values, I´m requested to type the password, and I use the default one (1234 as the manual says) and it doesn´t work. And if I change any value to any setting, and I select to chance to DEFAULT OPTIONS, nothing happens, the display turns back to the main menu. What would this be all about?

After you reset to default settings you need to save changes for it to take effect. there is also another password. 1234 will only take you to level 2 you need the level 3 password. this password can be found in the service manuals and some of the full manuals

I need to know what the difference is between a Z4m and a Z4m Plus.

Mechanically there isn't much difference. Electronically the 4Mplus replaced the 4M giving it more memory, ZPLII capabilities, and the ability to work with new barcodes and fonts that weren't supported by the 4M firmware.

Zebra Z4M only feeds a small portion of the label.

You should try a factory reset. Power off the printer. Hold the "pause" and "feed" buttons down while powering up. Allthe lights will blink and when they stop blinking, release the "pause" and "feed" buttons. This will factory reset the printer.

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.
