Question about Zebra Z4Mplus Label Printer

Open Question

Zebra Z4MPlus won't print barcode in Windows 7 Professional.

Downloaded the latest ZDesigner printer driver that is compatible with Windows 7. Tags will print, but the barcode will not(code 128). Normally you can see the Zebra fonts in a word document if the printer is your default. On this Windows 7 PC, you cannot.

SOURCE: Zebra Z4MPlus doesnt communicate with PC

Ok,

This machine has a parallel port. Try to print via parallel cable. If it works, consider staying with it. Serial ports are a pain to manage.
If you absolutely have to do it via rs232 though....
Question 1. Has it ever printed?
If yes, Go into Windows Printers and Faxes control and select the Zebra or whatever printer that you are using. Right click on it and you should get a menu that at the bottom say "Properties", select that, then you should get a new window with tabs at the top. You want the tab for "Ports". Select it and you will see all of the different output ports that you can direct your printing. RS232 is a COM port. So start at COM1, check it and try to print. If that doesn't work, go to COM2, etc.

Last resort, If you can't get control via the printer driver program, you will have to try redirecting the print manually (now you will understand why I said to stay with parallel output).
What you have to do is redirect your printing via the dos "mode" command.
Under "Start Menu" goto "Run" and put in "CMD" and click "OK".

This opens a black square window with a cursor blinking. Type in this:
mode com1:9600,n,8,1 (enter)

mode lpt2=com1 (enter)

Tell your program to use LPT2 if you can and see if it works.
By now a parallel cable instead of RS232 should be looking really good.
Good luck!

Try using the Seagull Scientific Zebra driver. It is usually a much better code driver that the original ZB one.

Hi I am printing barcode labels on a Zebra Tlp2844-Z. I can print resident barcodes in passthrough mode using the old Zebra driver (1.0.0.43) but the barcode does not print using the ZDesigner driver...


Have you tried creating the barcode / label using the ZDesigner software? It is available free on their website and I'm sure you'll find it easy to use. Hope this helps!

I have Zebra LP 2844-Z printer and the barcodes


Here are 3 suggestions.

1
Check that your label size definition is correct, measure your label height in mm and check that your printer driver settings match.

2
Perform a calibration. How?? when printer is on labels loaded and green light, hold feed key and wait for 2 blinks then release feed key. (If you release it after 1 flash you will print a configuration label)

3
If you are using Zebra Designer, download latest version of Zdesigner V2. Install latest printer driver V2.63. This driver & Zdesigner allows you to calibrate the printer directly from within Zdesigner. Go to File/Printer settings/ advanced options and click calibrate at bottom of page. when printer calibrates then tick the box USE PRINTER SETTINGS and printer will now work properly.

Please help. Printer not printing. Urgently...!!!


Sounds like you chose print to file for the port in the driver instead of what it should be set for. comm for serial cables. lpt1 for parallel, usb for usb. by having it set the way you do it is told to save the code. goto printers and faxes and right click on the zdesigner print driver and chose properties. then click the ports tab and chose the correct port.

Zud - print error - under temperature


Try using the latest zebra printer driver. The ZUD driver has been superceded by the latest Zdesigner driver which works in Zebra Designer and any windows application

There is specific coding you need to use to get it to work. Word documents add special characters to the batch files causing them not to printer properly.

You could try a merge to printer opertion in word and see if that will work. Make sure you to turn the printer on and off before attempting it to reset the control codes.
