    Thermal Printer Zebra ZP500 Plus prints from FedEx shipping manager. How can I get this printer to print from other software..

  • Saad Abouabdo Nov 15, 2010

    Thank you for all the information but I already know all that. Here is the Situation. I have a Zebra label printer model ZP500PLUS built by Zebra for FedEx. The printer works fine with FedEx software. I want to use this printer with other programs other than FedEx. There is no driver listed to this model anywhere. The model number itself does not appear on Zebra website. I was hoping that someone known how to crack the printer code or unlock the printer to work with other software.

    I am sorry I was not very clear in my initial writeup. I hope you can help...

Ok, you need to obtain a "Driver" that will work with the software you wish to use. If say you wish to use Windows, then you simply need to obtain a Windows driver file and install this and then plug the Printer into the USB port, it should be detected and the driver installed. Then you should be able to use it just like any other normal printer.

All info you need is at the above weblink....

Sounds like a problem with the printer. The software that came with the printer should have some tools that might help you, My old Epson printer came with a set of tools, one in particular tool (which may help you) was head aligment. This use to fix the issue of non straight lines being printed. Head cleaner was another tool i would use to have thin consistent lines printed. Check your printer install cd and add the extra software if all you have installed is the basic driver.

How do I get Fedex label printer to print from other programs??

eack software have diferent wais to talk with the printer,
or send the comands to the printer (zpl files) and like this, he can send the printer configuration direcly, or can use setings from the driver.
if you go to Printer and Fax, right click on the printer driver, go to "properties" and print the test-page.
If print text plus the windows logo, that meens the printer is comunicate, now the rest is with the each software.

Why do I have to run to fedex to get documents scanned to a pdf file. My lexmark x125 all in one cannot create pdf file. can u help?

Your printer is capable of scanning, but you need software to create a pdf file. There are free ones out there, such as : cutepdf , Adobe is what fedex and most offices have, but it is somewhat expensive.
Here is a link to a free one to help you out:

Need spare part for X4270

best thing i can say is call lexmark 1-877-577-2787 .. just to warn you sometimes the hold time can be agonizing and you usually get someone with some sort of accent you can hardly understand them. make sure you give them the right address. i ended up ordering right after i moved and i accidently put my old fire number and new street and they sent through fedex and they wouldn't deliver to the correct address unless lexmark called them so i called lexmark back and they point blank refused to call fedex and change it

Wont print

Check to make sure you have direct thermal labels. You can test this by scratching your fingernail across the label quickly. You should see a black line. This printer uses the same paper as a ups or fedex label. test a ups of fedex label with the fingernail test. Does it look the same? or call Andrew @ 908-725-1699
