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.

SOURCE: Z4MPLUS P3/P5 ERROR
The display shows P3/P5 ERROR? You can try to load firmware, download the file from www.zebra.com press the keys - and +, turn the printer and you see FIRMWARE DOWNLOAD in screen, download the file through the parallel port.

Problem is the temperature, printhead not hot enough. Download the zebra setup utility, you can use this utility to configure the print quality.
Heat setting can be found in the printer driver and easily adjusted there.
