Question about Zebra Z4M Printer

Label Printing stuck in queues

I have 2 Zebra Z4M printers which are shared across the network. It prints labels in large amount. Often we get errors in the printer queues and it would stops printing after the first patient. After I turn off the printer and turn it back on, printing resumes. But then it would stop again and I have to repeat the process. I contacted Zebra corp and they said the Z4M have been discontinued and they do not support it anymore.

Yes that is correct the Z4M is not supported any longer as they have reached End Of Life although parts are still available. The problem will be because the printer hasn't got enough memory, the Z4M uses flash RAM installed on the Main Logic Board. These might not be readilly available, another thing to use would be a Print Buffer. You should still be able to get them. The idea is to control the amount of data that is flowing to the printer, if the internal buffer fills up it will corrupt the data and a reboot is required.

Printing half the vertical, no matter what size label in use.


Some drivers adjust the length of the print area, regardless of the length of the label. Do calibrate the label and also verifies that the margins are zero.

Zebra Z4M only feeds a small portion of the label.


You should try a factory reset. Power off the printer. Hold the "pause" and "feed" buttons down while powering up. Allthe lights will blink and when they stop blinking, release the "pause" and "feed" buttons. This will factory reset the printer.

Out of Paper Error


You get the error because the printer doesn't see any paper.
There are paper guides that need to be set for the size of the labels being printed. If you are switching from a 4" wide roll or sheet to a 3 1/2" label, you will have to move the slider in about 1/2". You will also have to calibrate the printer when you change label stock. If it won't calibrate, make sure the photoeye is hittint the break between labels. The photoeye is located where you insert the labels into the printhead path.
