Printer ZM400 First Label problem

Printer Name: ZM400

First label always failed as it didnt print out the whole data. For instance, it only print out the 80% (top part) of the data while the rest 20% (bottom part) is not displayed.
However, the next subsequent label is working fine.

But if the printer prints alot of labels at once, it may stop a while (around 0.5 sec) and print again. This problem happened again as the next first label printed out.

If I was not wrong, this happened since we replace the ribbon.

SOURCE: Printing accurately

Hi there within the envelopes and labels print function within MS Word you will be able to set the correct label and sizes. If this doesn't work then adjust the margins.

This problem is nothing to do with your printer as you are sending a command to it and the printer is doing what you told it to do. Check the settings first.

Thanks J

SOURCE: cd label

I finally figured it out. The default DISC LABEL got set to HP TATTO. It should be PRINTABLE CD/DVD STANDARD. The HP Tatto uses the photo paper tray so the printer wants you to close the DVD tray

SOURCE: My printer display keep showing " Warning, Ribbon in", cannot print multiple label at a time

i have the same problem , but my printer is ZEBRA S4M ZPL

my solution is:

in your barcode software: change printer settings: 1 and 2

1 . in media setting : change media type --> Thermal transfer
2. in documents options , configuration --> use printer settings

- Preprinted stuff which the printer detects as to fo feed

The print out of ZM400 misalign to the left. How to make it back to the centre of the label?


Printing from an Internet Browser can cause this result if you have not set the margins, footers, and headers.
File ' Page Setup
Change all margins to 0.01 (or as close as possible, it may override you) and all SIX bars below that to Blank or Empty.

Zm400 media darkness settings get reset after printings lable from SAP


The printer driver settings override the printer settings unless you tell the driver to use the printer settings. You can tell by setting the printer setting and saving it permanently. Print a configuration label. Send a label to the printer. Print another configuration label. Compare the config labels and If it changed, then the driver changed it. Set the driver as above and it will not change when you print.

Zm400 label jam


Hi

Do not use a tool you may damage the printhead which will cost ofver 300 pounds to replace. First get what you can off with your fingers, then use IPA swabs or cotton cloth soaked with white spirit to gently and patiently remove the remains of the label and any adhesive residue.

On the Zebra it was printing 4x13 labels without a problem. However when I tried to print a 4x6 label it still thought there was 4x13 stock in the printer. I played around with the label format size, even...


I think this is more related to the calibration of the label each time you change the new label size. I use ZM400 and your printer should also have the same setting. Under setting, put the When Head Close setting to Calibration. This will let the calibration perform automatically when ever you load a new label size and close the print head. Well 2 label will be lost every time.

Will not print onto the label. but can see it on the black ribbon reel.


Perhaps your darkness is set too low, or your labels are not coated to accept thermal transfer printing. Let me know if this helps!

I print labels on a ZM400 zebra printer, I use Bardy software. on almost ever label there is white line that appear to be wrinkles. Never in same area.


check to see if part of a label is stuck to the print head. If not then clean the print head with alcohol. wipe it only in one direction. If this still fails then you will have to replace the head.

I can't print label from ZM400 PRINTER thru' serial port


There are a number of parameters for the serial port that have to match the pc. i would print out a config page from the printer via the menu, or power on with the cancel key held. then compare it with the settings on the pc. on the config page you should be looking for things like data bits, host control, parity etc.
