Chek on setings if the sennsor is reflective, transmissive or auto.
should be on Auto. try to read the Sensor profile, and check if read the gap.
Try the Manual calibration, and then run the sensor profile.
tur off and on again.

Are the supplies loaded correctly? Have you calibrated it?

I have warning Alert : Paper out on Zebra Model S4M


Calibrate the media sensors by power cycling the printer.

If that does not fix the issue you can adjust the sensors using the following procedure.

In the menu go to advanced setup 3 and enter password (default 1234)
Select MEDIA/RIBBON CALIBRATE
Follow onscreen prompts

If this does not fix the issue you may have a bad media sensor.

or Main board (I'd recommend getting a part number from the main logic board and ordering by that number as there are a number of different main logics for that printer that are not interchangeable.)

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.

Have X3 Zebra 140Xilll printers. These printers will stop printing with a message "Error condition Paper out". But the paper is loaded. Everything seems fine. What can I do? Thanks Steve Rolland


Check and clean the sensors, also the reflective surface. Make sure there are no lables stuck to the reflective surface. Use Isopropyl Alcohol to clean.

Zebra 110Xilll Plus Printer Not Recognizing Media


You can run the manual calibration from the menu , just follow the directions. Also run the sensor profile to print out the digital representation of the media sensor .If you are using standard label stock this should tell you if the transmissive sensor is good. Depends on the media, follow the users manual if different media requirements.

Every label printed starts further down on label zebra 105se


It sounds like the problem is with the media sensor. Make sure you haven't loaded the ribbon through the same slot that the paper enters on the media guide. There is a reflective metal plate above the media that reflects the sensor from below the media.

Out of paper error in Zebra 110XiIII plus


There is a small thumb screw under the paper guide that has an adjustable stop to hold the paper. If you load it correctly, you should have one on each side to guide the paper into the printer. Also, the machine has either a roller or a bar to hang the labels on, correct? The bar has an adjustable stop to keep the roll from moving around while you print. You may want to setup the media sensor about 1 cm from the left of the printer to make it less subject to this type of error. They come from the factory very close to the edge of the paper to allow for some card printers to work well out of the box. Most people use labels and this is not necessary. I hope I have given you some helpful information.

make sure you have selected the correct media in the printer driver. The tracking mode has 3 options, (1) Web Sensing (Cut Labels), (2) Mark Sensing (Black marks on back of liner) and (3) Continuous . In your case select continuous. It sounds like the printer is in the wrong media mode and is feeding labels looking for a mark or gap and when it doesn't find one it flags a media error.

Printer is only printing on every other label.


Adjut the sensor or re-calibrate.

To adjust sensor:

Open up the printer where you put the label, where the paper is fed there is are two green levers, one that helps guide the paper (media guide) which is adjustable by flipping down and sliding that is located  on the right and another one that is ON the media assembly(media sensor) check this for a reference as to what I'm talking about, it's not for a Zebra but they have the same functions.

http://www.posguys.com/download/DataMax-I-ClassManual.pdf

Go to page 29 and magnify it(400%) to get a better look

depending on the type of labels you use is how to adjust

1- labels with a knotch on the side, sensor MUST be all the way on the left ( standing in front of the machine , for reference)

2-labels with a gap in between each one, MUST be set towards the Middle of the labels.

Adjust a little at a time to check by pushing the feed button

if this does not work it must be recalibrated.

I don't have a manual for that printer, sorry.
