Question about Zebra Stripe S600 Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Zebra S600 printer

We have a Zebra S600 label printer that when it starts to print labels, the labels will get wrapped around the ribbon and jam it. It doesn't happen all the time. When a batch of labels has been printed and the last one is torn off, the next time a new batch of labels gets printed it retracts the label a little bit and then peels the label and wraps around the ribbon. I have tried to manually move the position of the labels forward on the feed button. If I go to far it won't print on the label correctly. Can anyone help?

    When printing a label on a z6m the label is pulled into the printer too far and doesn't get pushed back out to be printed on. Is there an adjustment that I can change for the back feed?

  1. Try just storing your labels in a cool dry place before using them. Peeling labels are usually a sign the glue is poor or weak.
  2. When tearing you labels off, feed them out before tearing them off, then hit the auto-align. See if that helps it.
  3. Try pushing a normal playing card under the metal cutter that tears the labels and pull it up and through the front to bend the blade slightly outward. This will hopefully allow the labels to pass underneath.

Ribbon is melting


Hi

You have the heat setting in the driver set too high.

Lower the heat setting to the lowest possible setting, the print quality will probably be poor then gradually increase it by 1 until print quality is good.

Zebra S600 not printing..replaced ribbon withe as paper/ribbon light solid..still no print after attempting reprint many times (the printing result are white labels)


Just a thought, Zebra Ribbons are Coated Side Out. Take a piece of tape and press it against the ribbon, ink should come off on the tape.

If not then make sure the ribbon is the correct type and that you have it loaded properly. Also, if you use multiple ribbons i.e. wax, wax resin or resin make sure that you have the correct ribbon for the media installed.

Hope that helps.

Can a Zebra S600 printer print labels without using a ribbon?


Yes it can but you have to use DIRECT THERMAL MATERIAL. That eliminates the need for a ribbon but what most people don't realize is that a ribbon is almost like "Oil" in your car. Direct Thermal material is more abrasive and will wear out your printhead much faster. Now if you don't print lots of labels that may not be a big deal but if you print 500+ labels a day then thermal transfer may be a better choice in the long run. Printheads are one of the most expensive components of these printers.

Recalibrate the printer, it seems it might have lost it's calibration. Chekc and clean all sensors in the paperpath with Isopropyl Alcohol.

Zebra S600 Thermal Ribbon Ripping after printing


Hi chunnon,

What darkness setting are you using? If the darkness is at or near 30, you may be burning through the ribbon.

Try defaulting the printer and running a Pause test. Does the ribbon tear during the Pause test?
