You would need to replace the printhead and the main logic board.

You proposed change is not feasible.

Sorry.

How do i fix the error in Zebra ZM600 printer and error is ERROR CONDITION INVALID HEAD


You may have problem with your Printhead cable or Logic, I'd start by re-seating the cable on both ends. If that does not work I'd replace the PH as it will wear out eventually anyway if it is not the problem you can keep it as a spare. The ZM600 will take both a 203 and 300 dpi Printhead make sure you get the same one you installed currently.

Make sure you are using the correct driver 170xiIII plus, and make sure the dpi of the driver matches the print head resolution.203 or 300dpi.

Can we make 300 dpi Zebra 105 SL printer to print on label expecting 203 DPI, Any configuration setting?


Krishan, sorry there are no settings that will allow you to do this on the 105SL. If the printer code expecting a 203 DPI printhead and you have a 300 DPI Printer then your label will print out much smaller then normal.

If you are printing labels with a label printing package (such as Seagull Bartender for Windows) then all you need to do is to install the proper printer driver. If you have your printer attached to a system that is sending "straight" ZPL (Zebra Printing Language Code) then your out of luck.

Hope this helps

Font height is big in printed barcode. how can I adjust the size of the font?


check if the setting FORMAT CONVERT is with some numbers, please change for NONE.
This seting change the resolution from Printhead 200dpi or 300dpi or 150 dpi or none, none mins, if you have 200dpi printhead, print 200dpi resolution(small fonts). if have 300 dpi, print with 300 dpi resolution, if have 300 dpi(very small fonts) printhead, can print 150dpi(big fonts) if change this setting.
if ok, check the driver or your software.

I have two printer and on one the label size comes out with the correct font size but when I try to print out the same label on the second one the bar code and human readable is much larger...am I missing...


Yes. You have two printers that have different "dots per inch" print heads. The printer with the correct size font is a 300dpi printer and the second one is a 203dpi printer. That's why the bar code and text is printing larger with the same code being sent to the first printer. The dots on the printhead are larger therefore, larger print.

Change the printer driver on the second printer to Z105SL-300 dpi and the print will be just fine.

Hope that helps !

I just changed out the print head and upgraded to a 300 dpi print head. Now when I print onto my label (2.5" x 0.75") label about 1/4" at the top of the label is not being used. Is there a configuration...


mmm...didn't think the printheads were interchangable. But the print will be smaller using a 300dpi printhead if you send a format that was designed for a 203dpi printhead. This is because the dots are smaller on the 300dpi. Make sure your formats have been switched to the 300dpi driver.

Hope that helps !

Zebra 105SL print only half of label


This can happen if your page size in your driver is not set to the actual label size. It can happen if you have old .dll driver files mixed with your mew driver installation.

This is what I would do:
Uninstall the driver completely - delete the icon in Printers and Faxes. Drop down the file menu there and choose server properties and remove the driver for all Zebra printers from the Drivers tab. Go into the LCD menu of the printer and load defaults. Go back into the LCD meny and look at the page width setting. Your printer has 300 dots per inch, so a 4 inch label would be 1200 dots wide.

Another thing to consider is that you may be trying to printer to a 300 dpi printer from a 203 dpi driver. Make sure that you choose 300dpi when you reinstall. This should work.... If not, repost with more details about your application and driver. I can assure you that this is not a printer problem unless half of your printhead has failed.... unlikely, but possible....

How to change the printhead from 300 to 203 dpiin my 105s ?


You can't change it with software, you have to order and install the 200 DPI printhead. Available from Zebra and some retailers on the internet.

Labels enlarged


if they are diferent resolutions, ex. you change from 200 dpi to 300 dpi, you need to change something inside the printer like the gears (just reversing the platten roller gear and the the withe gera on the motor) and you are printing on 300 dpi with very small fontes.
