We have a Zebra 105SL thermal printer. When I print to it with any application, the error light and paper out comes on.

Sounds like it may need a calibration. Press the calibration button on the front of the machine.

I have a Zebra 105 SL, I have the ribbon installed but the printer tells me that the ribbon is out. I've tried changing the ribbon and labels out but as soon as I power it back up and try printing again...

Calibrate the printer from the setup menu.

You'll (1) Load the label backing with the ribbon (2) remove the ribbon - just shove it to the right, out of the way of the ribbon sensor (3) reload the label and ribbon.

The printer will run a number of labels out.

Out of paper error

You just have to do is jsut adjust the size of the print you are taking. For eg. If you are printing the paper of A4 in a legal size of paper than the above error will be raised. Just adjust A4 to legal(As per the example. You have to choose as per your own need.)

Zebra 105SL thermal Label Printer prints blank with new supplies

Some possible reasons:
1. The darkness is not set high enough for the paper/ribbon combination
2. The ribbon is on backwards. Zebra uses coated-side out ribbons so the ribbon should be coming off the right side of the roll if you're looking at it from the side.

Hope that helps !

My Zebra Zm 400 keeps saying Pause Error Condition paper out however it is set to Direct Thermal. How do I get it back to the ready state?

make sure that the maximum lenght for the label is set to something greater than the physical length of the label. I was having this issue with a 4x3 label. As soon as I increased the maximum lenght to 5 inches it worked.

Zebra s4m error condtion paper out

Sounds like you will need to perform the calibration procedure.
when you access the menu system go to advanced menu, the password is 9999, use the keys to navigate to manual calibration and follow the instructions. when it states load backing this is refering to backing paper, so remove the labels from the backing and place in label path. hope this helps
