This could have a couple of different causes. Best thing to do is determine if the problem is with the printer or the software. Turn the printer off and back on again. After the power-on self test is done, just press the feed key. Does the printer feed just one label ? If so, then you know the printer has a good calibration on the size of the label. Now print a label. Does it skip one after printing ? If it does, now you know the problem is in the software because the printer is only going to do what it’s told to do. Check all settings in the label software / printer driver to make sure label size is accurate, correct printer driver is being used, etc.

So first check to see if the printer is ok by itself. If it feeds two labels after powering up, then the calibration is needs to be redone. Also make sure the media sensor is positioned over the label. This can cause skipping as well if out of position.

Hope that helps !

I am using a Zebra S4M Thermal printer with Zebra brand labels. I changed out the roll of labels with a new roll and it will not print. It completed the task like it always does but i only get a blank...


The new labels are probably not thermal labels. Test them by applying heat to the surface and see if they turn black. If they do not change, then they are thermal transfer labels and not direct thermal. Contact your label vendor and have them replaced.

Loaded ribbon correctly according to Zebra S4M Quick Reference guide....but won't print anything on labels.


The ribbon has wax just on one side. So, if nothing prints on the label, first thing I'd check if the ribbon loaded with waxed side facing label.

My Zebra LP 2844 printer is not aligned and the info on the tag prints onto the next tag, how do I fix this?


Calibrate the media that is in the printer. Power the printer on while holding the feed key. When it flashed red, let go. It will calibrate, print a config label, then go into dump. Press the feed key again to exit dump. Once this is complete, your printer should advance only one label at a time when you press the feed key. If this is working as expected, but the labels are not printing right when you print from you application, there is a problem with your format or driver settings.

I have a Z4M plus and it only prints half of the label. One half is well printed and the other half is blank. please help


Clean the print head. If half has got gummy from labels, it will not be able to print. You will need to use a solvent for the gummy adhesive... possibly Toluol... HOWEVER be very careful to keep that off ANY plastic parts.

Settings seem correct, but labels will print on 2 labels, or skip labels. Zebra s4m


The printer is not calibrated to the media length. You need to perfrom a calibration with the labels loaded. This is in the users manual on how to do it. The printer should be set to automatically do this when powered up.

He are the steps you need to calibrate your printer

Label Length Calibration
Note: This is typically the only procedure required when first installing the labels.
1. Load the printer with media and ribbon.
2. Press the printer front panel MODE key until the CALIBRATE LED is lit.
3. Press the FEED key and allow the labels to feed.
4. When the labels have stopped press the MODE key once to save the value in memory.

How to feed labels on zebra s4m


The issue that is causing the problem is when users tear off the label they are actually partially pulling on the next label causing it to peel away a little then when it feeds it will jam. Only reliable way to stop this is once the user prints tell them to press feed and feed 1 label through.

Printing every third labels ---> not every one:(


Sounds like the label height is set too high. Go into Printer Preferences in Windows and change the height dimension to match the size of the label you are using.
