Zebra z4mplus printer resets to thermal transfer

We just purchased the Zebra Z4MPlus printer to print barcode labels.
I have set both the printer and the printer driver settings to thermal direct but for some reason when I send a job thru our inhouse program the printer resets it self to thermal transfer and asks for the ribbon. I tried everything and nothing works.
Hope someone can help me with this issue.

Hi there,

Please go to the inhouse program & click printer properties and
change the printer setup to direct thermal and that's it.

When I send a print job to my Z4MPlus label printer, the label prints but without any ink on it. It is set to Direct-Thermal. What else should I be looing for to correct this issue?

Hi, you can have 3 scenarios here, the print head is faulty, mainboard faulty or darkness set to low, please reset printer to factory default without any lpt/com/usb/network cables connected, turn off and on. try to run Pause test ( turn on printer with pause button pressed for 5 sec and release it)

Change label size

Turn the power off. Remove old stock. Load new stock. Turn power on. Restart your program. Form size is software controlled from your form settings downloaded into the printer before your print. Make sure you restart your software to reload them.

Ribbon wrinkles when printing barcodes

This is usually caused by temperature of the thermal print head. This is found in the printing preferences of the printer.

iN THE DRIVER CHECK THE head TEMPERATURE ISSUE. Most certainly you do not heat enough to do the transfer.
Else your ribbon is not mounted correctly. Zebra has an out inking transfer film
