SOURCE: Zebra S600 printer continues calibrating

The factory default settings for the S600 is to auto calibrate every time the printhead is closed and every time the power is cycled. If the media sensor is not positioned correctly for the media you are using the label size will not be detected during a calibration. You mentioned the media has no markings, doe sthe media have a space between the labels? If so, the media sensor may not see the gap in the labels adn therefor is not calibrating properly or not calibrating at all. Check the media sensor position. I have found that the media sensor must be at least 1" from the inner wall of the printer so it doesn't see the edge of the backing in oder to read the size of the labels.

SOURCE: Zebra 105Se power on calibration

If this unit has the LCD screen you need to Press Setup. Then Press Next till you get to Media Power Up and set it to FEED. Next go to Head Close and set it to FEED also and then save settings. It will only shoot one label out instead of Calibrate. Which is needed when they install new lables if its the same type of label all the time really don't need to Calibrate every time you stick new labels in it.

SOURCE: When calibrating, it onlt feeds a couple labels

Use the Menu system to calibrate, follow the instructions and it should calibrate with New settings. Calibration by setting it to calibrate on head close or bootup only loads factory settings.

SOURCE: What setting is it, to keep the printer from

There's a couple of settings in the menu that let you choose different options every time you open and close the printhead and also for every time you power it on.

"MEDIA POWER UP" - Set this to "CALIBRATE". -This will calibrate every time you power on the printer. I recommend this setting.




"HEAD CLOSE" - change to "FEED". - this will insure the printer starts printing properly witout having to recalibrate.

My zebra tlp 2824 won't line up to the labels


Either your printer needs calibrated: Calibrate Zebra Desktop Printer

Or your label template size( in the software) does not match the label size. I recommend the calibration then looking at the software label templates.

What setting is it, to keep the printer from calibrating every time I switch out the paper, even though they're all the same length & width. It wastes 2 labels, before it prints what I need.

there must be a label gap sensor in there somewhere. see if you can find it in the label path and clean anything you see off of it. does this printer have a calibrate function? if so do that after you clean the sensor. here are the calibration instructions from zebra https://www.zebra.com/us/en/support-downloads/knowledge-articles/zp-series--calibrating-the-printer.html

Printer does not print in correct place after calibration, stops and says paper error


Sounds like the printer is not getting the proper calibration on the label being used. After putting printer in pause and pressing calibrate button, a good calibration is indicated by the labels feeding, a slight hesitation, and the feeding a couple of more labels at a faster speed. If the labels just feed and then stop, that is not a good calibration. Then you have to make sure the top and bottom media sensor are properly aligned.

How to stop calibrating soo much?


There is no way to get around the recalibration for different sizes of label, you must do it at every different label height, The callibration only sets the label height/length, so try doing the same length labels in sequence.

The calibration sheet has poor color as well black, gray, blue?


First of all, you only need to calibrate the printer once (when you first set it up).
Second, you can calibrate it on regular paper.
Third, if you can print pictures without a problem, then you should not worry about the calibration page at all.

Set up


May be your problems can be solved doing a calibration. To do this, turn off the printer, press the feed key and turn on the printer. When the led flashes in red quickly release the feed key, the printer will start to calibrate and after the calibration will feed one label.

It is explained in the user manual.
