Use the Menu system to calibrate, follow the instructions and it should calibrate with New settings. Calibration by setting it to calibrate on head close or bootup only loads factory settings.

My printer says "check supplies". I try feeding the label, almost as if the sensor won't recognize the gap and stops feeding halfway on the label then error light comes on


you may =have to do a sensor calibration or it may just be that you need to adjust the sensor to the label.
2 types of labels GAP which i a space between the two labels ( they don't touch each other or knotch labels touch each other but there is a small open gap all the way to the Left of the Labels. If GAP move the Green sensor Bar to the middle of Labels.
If Knotched move to the LEft where the gap is, hit Feed button it should move one label at a time you may have to adjust slightly

No gap detected


This could be caused by a couple of issues:
  • Dirty sensor (use compressed air and blow out printer)
  • Wrong media (using labels with black bars obscuring the gap and making it non-readable by sensor)
  • Wrong label format for size of labels used (make sure label size matches the template size)

Labels aren't feeding through at right length


This sounds like a calibration issue.


Follow the instructions below to re-calibrate



Three readings are required:

· Empty: No media in the sensor.

· Gap (or Mark): Only the backing, notch, or reflective mark in the sensor.

· Paper: The label (with the liner attached) in the sensor.

To perform a Standard Calibration:


Step Operator Action Displayed Message Comment

1 (Media should be loaded and the appropriate Sensor Typeselected.)


2 Press the menu key.

Raise the printhead assembly.

MENU MODE

MEDIA SETTINGS


You are entering Menu Mode.


3 Press the enter key to enter

the Media Settings menu.

MEDIA SETTINGS

MEDIA TYPE



4 Press the FWD key and

scroll to 'Sensor Calibration'.

MEDIA SETTINGS

SENSOR CALIBRATION



5 Press the ENT key. SENSOR CALIBRATION

PERFORM CALIBRATION

You are beginning the standard

calibration procedure.


6 Press the ENT key.

Remove the media from the Media Sensor then press any key.


REMOVE LABEL STOCK

PRESS ANY KEY <yyy>

This sets the parameter for the

'empty' value.

Where 'yyy' is a numerical

value representing the current

sensor reading.



8 Position the label (and backing,

if any) under the Sensor Eye

Mark.

ã Note: If using preprinted

media, ensure the label area

under the sensor is free of

preprinted text, graphics or

borders.

Press any key to continue.

SCAN PAPER

PRESS ANY KEY <yyy>

This sets the parameter for the

'paper' value.

Where 'yyy' is a numerical

value representing the current

sensor reading.

The calibration was successful.

See note below if another

message was displayed.


10 Exit upon successful

calibration: Back out of the

menu tree by repeatedly

pressing the key.

If using gap or reflective media,

press and hold the FEED key.

The printer will begin

advancing media; allow at least

one label gap (or mark) to

advance under the sensor.

Gap not detected


GAP NOT DETECTED error in displayProduct: T5000rSymptom

GAP NOT DETECTED error in display.
Possible Cause

Dirty media sensors, wrong label length
Recommend Solution

Clean the upper and lower media sensors by spraying them with dry air. This should bedone every time the media (label stock) is changed.

Before running the Auto-Calibrate operation, check the QUICK SETUP or MEDIA CONTROL menu for the 'Label Length' parameter. It should be set to the length of the label, not counting the gap.

Check that the sensor type has been set in CALIBRATE CTRL menu to match the media and ribbon.
"Gap" Select when using media with a liner space between die-cut labels or when using tag stock with notches or holes as label length indicators.
"Mark" Select when using media that has horizontal black marks located on the underside of the label liner or tag stock.
"Advanced Gap" Select when media is gapped but also has a dark background.
This sensor arrangement looks through the ribbon, and will not work if ribbon is too dark.
"Advanced Notch" Select when media has a notch that is placed in a dark line on the back of the stock.

Check the position of the media sensor. It should pass through the center of gaps or marks or notches, but not through pre-printed areas if possible.

Run Auto-Calibrate in CALIBRATE CTRL menu, which sets Gap and Paper Out Thresholds

My zebra printer wont line up the labels and keeps saying paper out


run the sensor profile, check if check the gap, run manual calibration, if ask for reload media, please take 3 or 4 labels from the label rolar, put through the sensors (check if ribbon(if use) is install on the correct spots and don't stop the sensors to read the gaps) and run the manual calibration.

Printer does not print in correct place after calibration, stops and says paper error


Sounds like the printer is not getting the proper calibration on the label being used. After putting printer in pause and pressing calibrate button, a good calibration is indicated by the labels feeding, a slight hesitation, and the feeding a couple of more labels at a faster speed. If the labels just feed and then stop, that is not a good calibration. Then you have to make sure the top and bottom media sensor are properly aligned.

Printer will stop feeding paper after printing SELF TEST, Once again press FEED key for 3 seconds. Printer will enter into normal Mode.
Check now.

The printer must be calibrated or the type of sensor is wrong. Verify that the sensor type is correct for your label (gap or black mark) and you can calibrate it by pressing the FEED key for about 5 seconds approximately.
