Re: Printer Stripe S-500 Zebra

Question, when the printer prints is there an image of the data on the ribbon when it spools onto the ribbon takeup spool? If so, the ribbon may be installed backwards. I'm sure you know what you are doing but one must check even the smallest detail when trying to solve these strange problems. If the ribbon is installed correctly and there is no image of the data on the ribbon you may be dealing with a bad printhead and the printhead needs to be replaced.

The printer now is replaced, but i had changed also te printhead before. Now we use a other type of Zebra now :), more better and slower.

Thank You

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.

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
