Question about Zebra S4M Thermal Label Printer

We relocated our Zebra S4M to the new area and it

We relocated our Zebra S4M to the new shipping area and it now has the red light on in the back and will not print or register on PC for printing. Had a pop up that said "USB hub power surge" but then went away. Tried different power strips and plugs and same thing keeps happening. Any ideas?

Have you tried resetting the printserver? I am assuming this is a networked printer when you say the red light on the back. There is a little button on the printserver. Turn printer off, and while pressing that little button in with a paperclip, turn the printer on and continue holding in the button until the light is a solid green. Could take a minute or two depending on the network.

My zebra s4m will not power up. there is power & the power cable is good. is there an internal fuse?


I had the same problem. Just got off the phone with Zebra and they said it has a bad power supply. Luckily mine is under warranty, so I have to go to zebra.com/repair and fill out a form to get a new one. Hopefully this will fix the problem.

I am using a Zebra S4M Thermal printer with Zebra brand labels. I changed out the roll of labels with a new roll and it will not print. It completed the task like it always does but i only get a blank...


The new labels are probably not thermal labels. Test them by applying heat to the surface and see if they turn black. If they do not change, then they are thermal transfer labels and not direct thermal. Contact your label vendor and have them replaced.

S4M Thermal Label Printer: Very thin vertical line in bar code area negating ...


The printhead is starting to go bad. Try cleaning it. If you can't get the line to disappear, you can rearrange the info on your label so that the void does not go across your barcode. Lastly, you can replace the printhead. Hope this helps

Gaps in barcode with Zebra S4M


The gaps run in the direction of the label feed? You have a bad printhead. Bad dots on the printhead prevent it from printing your format in the areas that you see the blank lines.
There is no easy fix other than replacing the printhead. You can prevent (or actually prolong the time between failures) in the future by periodically cleaning your printhead. It's recommended that you clean the printhead after every roll of labels. The printhead is underneath the hinged assembly. Over time, ribbon or adhesive from the labels builds up and causes dots to go bad - creating the blank lines you see. Clean your new printhead with rubbing alcohol.

S4M doesn´t print


The S4M comes with either EPL or ZPL programming language installed. (installed at factory) The S600 is a ZPL only printer. Check that you have correctly specified the S4M as a ZPL printer. Print a config label to check. If it is set as an EPL printer contact your supplier and ask him to download the correct programming language. It should only take a competent engineer about ten minutes (If he knows what he is doing)
