Printer will not advance to tear after print


I can't give the exact solution for this printer, however, I use the Epson POS thermal printer and here was our solution. In Windows 7 go to Devices and Printers. Click on Printer Properties. Then see if you see a tab that says Document Settings. Under that setting click on Paper Source. You should now see several options; I have mine set on Document(Feed, No Cut). There are other options but we prefer to tear ours off. You can chose Document(Feed, Cut) and it should advance then cut the paper for you.

Why is the ribbon tearing when it feeds?


Possible ribbon tear causes are:
1. Your Heat setting (Printhead temp) is too high - normal is about 10
2. You have something stuck on one of the surfaces the ribbon is contacting, i.e. a piece of label.
3. Something is out of place that is contacting the ribbon, i.e. a loose spring or wire.
4. Something is bent and/or out of alignment - look for where the ribbon starts tearing and examine that area carefully.

How do i adjust the printer to the tear off position


Print a config label by holding the cancel button and powering on 15seconds. Check print mode = tear off. If it is in rewind mode the label stops under the print head and does not backfeed before printing. Tear off pushes the perf to the tear bar and backfeeds before printing.

My printer always start printing short so that the lables end up on two pieces instead of one


We must establish whether the problem is a moving label or just that the labels are not aligned properly. Is hte printing split across the two labels consistant regardless of hte number of labels printed? If so, then the lables are not aligned properly. The user manual has the procedure for aligning these. This is part of the setup procedure.

If hte first line of the labels changes position on subsequent printings, then either the label size is not defined properly or the format being used is not correct. I don't have the manual handy at the moment so I can't give you the particulars, but if you could update this and tell me which of the 2 conditions you are experiencing, I will look up the specifics in the morning.

Thanks,
Dan

Zebra 90XiII - sometimes when adjusting the tear off position using the arrow keys. The printer (motor) doesn't move the label media in/out. When it does actually move the label media to the desired...


Print a configuration label and see if it is in the correct mode - tear off mode. If it is in rewind or peel off, then the label is not suppose to come out to the cut bar, but stop under the print head and not backup.
If you want it to align with the cut bar make sure that the driver is set for tear off with backup enabled. The printer driver in the software will override the printer setting and change it as soon as you send a print job.

Zebra QL420 portable printer label gets misaligned frequently


There are two things to consider here: 1) Is the printer set to the correct media handling setting? Look in the manual for the terms BAR-SENSE and GAP-SENSE and make sure that you have sent the correct command to the printer. 2) There is a TOF or Top of Form setting that you can send to the printer to align the perforation of the labels with the tear bar. Look for the syntax in the manual, which is free for download at zebra.com, and make sure that your perfs line up with your tear bar.

Zebra S600 Tear position adjustment won't stay put


To be sure we're talking about the same thing, you pressed MODE twice, then used UP and DOWN to align it, right?

Have you checked your Printer Preferences and Printer Defaults? Could be a label size setting somewhere. Preferences follow the Windows user, Defaults follow the print device.

Try to restore factory settings if all else fails. I have to do this quite often. Best to start with a clean slate.

Here's the manual if you need it:

  1. Try just storing your labels in a cool dry place before using them. Peeling labels are usually a sign the glue is poor or weak.
  2. When tearing you labels off, feed them out before tearing them off, then hit the auto-align. See if that helps it.
  3. Try pushing a normal playing card under the metal cutter that tears the labels and pull it up and through the front to bend the blade slightly outward. This will hopefully allow the labels to pass underneath.
