Question about Zebra Z4M Printer

1 Answer

Barcodes Printer just stopped putting barcodes on the labels. Teklynx software seems fine as other printers will show b-c. The data part of the b-c shows up correct. This is unusual to say the least and we can't figure it out.

Not sure if this is 100% fixed but the teklynx had two zebra printers listed, one 200 dpi and another 203 dpi, when switched to 203 dpi the barcodes came back. The labels prompt for conversion to 203 dpi and aren't perfect but close enough to use.

We're using 4.00 X 2.00 inch labels. The barcode is printing just under an inch long when it should be about 2 inches long so our scanners cannot read the barcodes. The text is printing out the

Error 616

The software is not corrupt. The 606 is basically telling you that one of the dots that heat up to make the image on your paper isn't able to heat up correctly. Since the printer can typically shift these dots over from one side to the other to help compensate for these dots going bad, it is also saying that it can't shift either.

You're seeing this issue on a barcode, and instead of a barcode you're getting a gray box. If you're unable to make changes in your code that is going to the printer, that tells it what to print and where, your best bet is to purchase a new printhead form Avery.


Though the issue can be worked around, it is possible that now that you can print that barcodes you want, you may find that new ones won't be able to print because they're printing in that same space where the printer cannot shift dots to compensate for the bad one.

The printer will print a bar code but the reader will not read it. the reader reads the bar code from a second printer just fine

Sounds like there are some elements worn off of the printhead causing some of the bars to not be printed. To test, create a label that prints a thick black line or solid black box across the width of the label (assuming a 4" label). Any vertical white lines that show indicate elements that are not functioning.
You could also put one label above the other, lining up the barcodes and you'll probably see bars that are missing from the label that won's scan.
The only ways to correct the problem are to install a new printhead or move the barcode field on the label so that the missing elements fall in the spaces between the bars.

Hope that helps !

Speed of printing barcodes

Generally the ZM 400 can cope with printing at the lower speeds when printing barcoedes that are the same. You may get pauses if the barcodes are sequential numbers or are all different, then the data to be transfered to the printer cannot cannot keep up with the printer and pauses while it gets more data. We have found that if you can select in your labelling software to print the barcode as a graphic, then it speed up quite a lot. It is a matter of matching your print speed and quality to match your expectations, sometimes you will just have to put up with the pauses.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.

Barcodes print too long

This is defendant on the program you use to print labels with. The printer responds to either a print job sent to the driver (like a standard windows printer). Or you can send an EPL program to the printer in order to use internal barcode generating features of the printer. The dimensions of the barcode are controlled via the EPL script. See the EPL programming guide avaialble on Zebra's website for more info.

Improper printing of barcodes

recalibrate the label length in the printer(hold feed and power up). from memory bar-one uses the label settings from windows, so go into printers and faxes under control panel and correct the label size
