Zebra 4M Plus Pauses unexpectedly

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?

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,
say "ok"
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.

Hello, I have a problem with Zebra Z4M Plus


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.

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...

Speed of printing barcodes


Generally the ZM 400 can cope with printing at the lower speeds when printing barcoedes that are the same. You may get pauses if the barcodes are sequential numbers or are all different, then the data to be transfered to the printer cannot cannot keep up with the printer and pauses while it gets more data. We have found that if you can select in your labelling software to print the barcode as a graphic, then it speed up quite a lot. It is a matter of matching your print speed and quality to match your expectations, sometimes you will just have to put up with the pauses.
