Not this. Looking for the solution

Re: Reg. zebra S600 lable

I had this happen when I changed from one label to a different size label. It needs to be calibrated. There are several types of calibration to do to the S600. Here is the solution that worked for me.

  1. Check the position of the laser Media Sensor (figure 13). It may need to be moved to match the type of label that will be printed.
For CARD labels, the media sensor needs to be set at the edge of the card so it can “see through” the notch that is cut on the edge where the perforation is.

    1. For STICKY labels, it can “see through” the backing which shows between each sticky label, so the Media Sensor could be set anywhere for it to work, but will probably be set towards the middle.
Set to Factory Defaults. This is so that all of the following steps will work. I do not need to change the steps based on the type of mode that printer is set up in because it will erase all that by setting it to the factory default. (See figure 14 for buttons)

    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Hold the FEED and PAUSE buttons down as the printer power is turned on.
    3. Press MODE button four times.
    4. When the defaults are saved to the printer, the CALIBRATE, DARKER, and POSITION lights will all flash.
Test to see if the calibration is set correctly for the label. If not, proceed to the following steps.

  1. Do a Manual Calibration.
Turn off the printer.
    1. Hold the PAUSE, FEED, and CANCEL buttons down as the printer power is turned on, keeping the buttons depressed.
    2. This will run through several labels and do some printing.
    3. Release all three buttons after the CALIBRATION light comes on and then goes back off.
Put the printer into Auto-Calibration Mode.

    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Hold PAUSE, CANCEL, and MODE down as the printer power is turned on.
    3. Release the buttons after printer is powered on.

Zebra S600 - Printer pauses after each printed numbered label, if I don't number them it works fine?

It sounds like your labelling software is re-sending the entire print job each time. Do some research with your software and see if you can change the defaults so that everything BUT the serial number is stored inside the printer, and only the new serial number is sent.
It's difficult to be more specific because every software package is different...

Hi there, I am printing on Zebra S600 using Seagull Scientific Driver, The printer only prints every alternate label that is prints one label and prints a blank. Thank you for your help

Skipping labels is usually a printer driver issue. You should use Seagull Scientific printer driver only if you are using the corresponding Seagull Scientific label design software. It is important to have the printer driver and label design software be from the same manufacturer.

Hi, On a Zebra S600 printer... How to change setup for print method (actually it showing up direct thermal) and we would like to change the print method to (Thermal trans). Thanks! Pierre Tardif

The easiest way may be to change your printing preferences at the driver level. We use Seagull Scientific Drivers (They are free to download).

If you use the Seagull Driver go to your Printers Folder, "Right Click" your printer and go to Properties
Then Go to the General Tab then Printing Preferences then Stock Tab then Print Method. Click on the Down Arrow and change to THERMAL TRANSFER.

If your using a label printing package make sure your settings are for Thermal Transfer since they can override default printer settings.

Good Luck

Zebra s600 doesnt print correctly. left side of label has lines going through it

If the lines are blank, you can try to clean the print head with Mentholated spirits or Isopropyl Alcohol. If this doesn't fix it then the print head will need to be changed

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 and do a live chat to Michael.

Prints half of label

Restart your computer. Turn your printer off and back on again. Restart your software for printing lables. When updating the printer drivers, all software needs to be restarted to make sure that the form controls are working properly.
