Question about Zebra Stripe S600 Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

End of roll wasted

The labels on the end of a roll of labels are wasted as they either are skewed to one side or are no longer printing at the correct position vertically.

Is this normal? Should I expect wastage? These are Zebra Labels.

What in the world!! I have the Smart Label Printer 450, it is not advancing the label, and the power button is flashing. It will not print a label at all at this point, and when it will end up printing a...


Unfortunately, this is usually an indication that the label roll in the printer are too old. This action is by design, compatible labels should have a black rectangle on the reverse side and the Smart Label printer uses the black rectangle to orient the label. This means your Smart Label doesn't think its wasting labels, it's just trying to run through what it considers to be unsuitable labels as fast as it can. If you're only printing one label at a time you can recover some labels by correctly the label's line up after each label you print but there's nothing you can do so that your printer will properly advance its current labels.

Remove the current roll, open a new boxed label roll, remove a sealed roll, cut open the sealed plastic, remove fresh label roll and load it in your Label Printer. Power the label printer back on and press the label advance button, it should correctly line up.

My zebra tlp 2824 won't line up to the labels


Either your printer needs calibrated: Calibrate Zebra Desktop Printer

Or your label template size( in the software) does not match the label size. I recommend the calibration then looking at the software label templates.

Dymo LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo - Until recently worked fine from both sides. Suddenly, no longer printing from left - prints half a label, then stops, then error message says Out of Paper, the blue light...


See if it still happens using a fresh label roll. From the Dymo 450 User Guide the common causes of poor print quality issues.

Poor print quality is most frequently caused by one of the following:
• An old roll of labels
• Labels made by a manufacturer other than DYMO
• Labels where the thermal coating has been compromised
• A dirty print head
First, make sure you are using DYMO-branded labels. Do not use third-party labels because the thermal coating on other labels has a different sensitivity than DYMO-branded labels. Also, the perforated holes between the labels made by other manufacturers are frequently not detectable by LabelWriter printers.
If the print quality becomes faint, small dots of white appear scattered through the printed characters, or light and dark patches of printing appear, you are probably using a faulty roll of labels. Try using a different roll from a fresh box. If the second roll prints correctly, the problem is with the first roll of labels.
Another possibility is that the LabelWriter print head needs cleaning. Every LabelWriter printer comes with a cleaning card. See "Caring for Your Printer" on page 17 for information about the
LabelWriter cleaning card.

I would say try another manufacturer !
Are you sure that your driver is correctly installed and you label size correct?
This looks like you have a longer label than you real ones.

My printer prints great until I get near end of roll.


It sounds like a lower quality label material and possibly too tight winding on the label rolls themselves. Call BarcodeWarehouse.biz and ask for a free roll of theirs and see if you have the same problem.

When you send a label to the printer (ql420plus) - Prints the label, then a blank, then the label, then a bland until the roll ends.


More than likely you label size is not defined properly. Please make sure you have selected the correct label on the PC side.

Ptouch 1100QL waste of tape issue


It isn't actually "before the actual letter comes out," as you said, but rather after. You have probably noticed that you must do a "feed" first or the cut won't clear the end of the label and you have to do it again. This just reflects the distance between the print head and the cutting bar.
There's no way to avoid this if you must have the one label you just printed right away and you don't have any more labels to make at the moment.
However, if you have several labels to make, you can economize by printing them one right after the other (without any "feeds" or cuts), then once you're all done, do a "feed" and cut. The labels will be close together, with little waste except at the ends, and you can cut them apart with a scissors.

Printing out of square


If the problem is with the single sheet feeder try running regular paper through it - does it have the same issue? Is the paper skewing as it is fed in or is the print itself. If the paper is skewing look for problems with the feed rollers possibly a label has become attached to one of the rollers. If not try cleaning them with (90% or better) isopropyl alcohol on a soft rag

Advances ticket too far after printing.


your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
