Question about Zebra Z4M Printer

1 Answer

Is it possible for my Z4M printer to automatically rewind rather than going through the menu and manually setting it to rewind each time? It says saving permanent changes but I still have to change it for each print job.

The best way to do this is to set the printer via software. This can usually be accomplished by prepending a "format" to the print job. The specifics for this are documented in the programming guide. This way all of the settings are defined for each print job. This will completely eliminate the need for any "permanent" settings.

Z4m printer will miss labels in jobs. I've saved the job in the spooler and if I resend the jobs the blank labels will print out so I know the job is good. Any suggestions welcome.

Check the label size is set correctly in the application. Try using a driver from Nice Label or Seagull Scientific websites to suit Z4M (Not Z4M Plus). Recalibrate the printer and try again. Remember to setup the driver correctly because the driver will override the printer settings.

My Zebra Z4M stopped rewinding the used liner

This could be something simple like not having rewind (peel) selected in the setup menu. Or you could have a bad rewind motor or main logic board. Remove the cover and make sure no plugs have come loose. There isn't an easy way to check the motor or logic board unless you have a spare that you can swap.

My Zebra z4m plus

in the setup menu there is an option to choose what the machine does on powerup and head close. Yours is probably set to calibrate. Just change that setting to "none". Same thing with the pausing. there is a setting to pause after printing each label. Just change that option.
