We have a Zebra 4pm Plus that when printing a large label job, it will pause by itself with no Error on the LCD Display, with pleanty of ribbon and label paper withen the unit. If you Then hit the pause button to un pause, the job continues (somtimes pausing again depending on how much more it has to go).
The Printer is hooked up to a WinXP pro based computer via LPT port. Any ideas?

Re: Zebra 4M Plus Pauses unexpectedly
Try to run the manual calibratio from the setings.
run "manual calibration"
move the ribbon out from the sensor (with the print head open) and take out 3 or 4 labels from the rollar and put that blank label paper unther the sensors on the left,
wen appear "reload all"
put the ribbon and the normal labels on the correct possition, and say "ok"
try to run sext the sensor profile.
save data (twice on "setup button")
tur off, and on again.

Hi, if is the vertical line, its the print head that need to be replaced, try to clean the print head and try this to confirm: turn printer off, press PAUSE button and at the same time, power on, don't release the button, please wait until printer LCD screen come on, then release button. It will print the PAUSE test and after few 3-4 prints, u can turn off and on again otherwise printer not ready to print your labels until u restart it. (pause test stops after 10-15 labels). this pause print just show how the print head is and if come with vertical lines, u will need to replace. other idea is (if u can) turn the bar code different position or on vertical way at label format. Thanks.
Locate your printer driver under devices and printers Right click on it and select "Printing Preferences" Choose the "Advanced Setup" tab Change media type to "Thermal Transfer" Be sure that "use printer settings" is NOT selected at the top left Click OK and you should be good. Note that any labels created prior to this change will need to be changed inside each label under the label setup.
As the previous expert has stated, with the printer paused, press the cancel key to cancel the job. One thing to note, is depending on how your software sends the print jobs, you may say print 1000 labels, but the software sends it one at a time, so basically you have 1000 print jobs in the printer. If you pause the printer, press and hold the cancel key. Hold it for about 2 mins. This should clear the buffer.
First clean the sensor tag and sensor head open and tape. Then perform a calibration label pressing the PAUSE and FEED buttons and turn on the printer, release the keys until it starts to move the label. Wait until you are finished and ready to print.
if you are not using a ribbon you should configure your printer properties in direct thermal the same with your printer configuration in LCD Panel, if your printer properties is different with the LCD Panel error condition ribbon out will come out to your LCD Panel
