Go into the web interface of the printer and set the Calibration to SHORT CAL on power(media) up and head down. It worked for me. Now everytime the printer is rebooted it spits out a few labels(to calibrate) but then it works properly.

If you push the foward button does it skip several labels, instead of stopping at the next one?
Did someone change the roll or type of label? if no

then your problem may be a simple one.
look under the label you should see a green tab. actually there are two one that guides the paper and one under, the one under slides back and forth. Now depending on if you have a lbel with a seperation in between each one or the one that have knotches on the side, you need to position the sliding sensor accordingly,
If seperated then it needs to be towards the middle if a knotch then towards the back of the printer. as you adjust keep hitting the forward button until it only moves one label at a time.

If it doesn't work then you may need to recalibrate. Let me know.

Is there a way to change the setting on the Zebra S4M to rotate the print 180 degrees to match our labels?


No. The change must be made in the software that you are creating the label design in. Let me know if this helps!

Hi I am unable to print from Zebra S4M.. while printing the configuration it prints but does not print the test page or the label.


There a number of things that can cause that: 1) wrong printer driver was installed 2) cable to printer is faulty 3) wrong port was selected when the printer driver was installed
Check these and let me know!

Loaded ribbon correctly according to Zebra S4M Quick Reference guide....but won't print anything on labels.


The ribbon has wax just on one side. So, if nothing prints on the label, first thing I'd check if the ribbon loaded with waxed side facing label.

S4M doesn´t print


The S4M comes with either EPL or ZPL programming language installed. (installed at factory) The S600 is a ZPL only printer. Check that you have correctly specified the S4M as a ZPL printer. Print a config label to check. If it is set as an EPL printer contact your supplier and ask him to download the correct programming language. It should only take a competent engineer about ten minutes (If he knows what he is doing)

Printing every third labels ---> not every one:(


Sounds like the label height is set too high. Go into Printer Preferences in Windows and change the height dimension to match the size of the label you are using.

Printing every third labels ---> not evry


You need to take the labels out.

If you are using the labels that have perforations is where you can tear them off.

What you need to do is to

1) Switch off printer
2) ensure that the ribbon is loaded correctly
3) take some labels, feed them through the mechanism till you can see them coming out from the other end.
4) Make sure that the labels are lined up with the alignment mark or sometimes with label printers there is a light.
5)switch on printer and do a test print
