Re: Not printing on Label

The solution when I had this problem turned out to be that the temperature setting was 0. It needs to be around 15-20.

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.

Changed rolls of labels on Zebra GX 420T and now nothing prints

Were the new labels thermal paper? Thermal printers need specially made paper to work right.

My Z4M Plus printer is not printing the label all the settings are fine no error. The ribbion shows the image but it doesnot print on the Label.

Two possiblities: 1. the darkness is not high enough for the ribbon/label combination. 2. the ribbon is on backwards. if the ribbon is on backwards, you will still see an impression on the ribbon but not on the label. This means all the ink transferred to the printhead which should then be cleaned.

The ink side of the ribbon needs to face down to the label to print so the easiest way to make sure which side has the ink is to use a label or piece of tape and touch it to the ribbon. If no ink comes up in the adhesive then that is the wrong side.

Hope that helps !

Ink smearing

This is a compatible ribbon/label combination as Zebra says. The only thing you can try is to turn up the darkness setting. The 5586 ribbon you are using requires a fairly high darkness setting ~ maybe around 25. If this still doesn't work then the best solution would be to use a Zebra card printer that prints right on the plastic card. These are made for exactly what you are trying to do. If you don't want to buy the printer then we can print them for you when you need them. I can give you my email if you want us to help.

I channged the ribbon and the printer will not print tried several thing but it look like everything goes ok but there is nothing printed on the labels

Check that ribbon is installed correctly. Zebra ribbon only has ink on one side. ink side must be facing label. Use a label to check which side ink is on stick label onto ribbon and peel off.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.
