I print labels on a ZM400 zebra printer, I use Bardy software. on almost ever label there is white line that appear to be wrinkles. Never in same area.


check to see if part of a label is stuck to the print head. If not then clean the print head with alcohol. wipe it only in one direction. If this still fails then you will have to replace the head.

I keep getting wrinkled ribbon in my zebra XiIII printers Part seems to be caused by static, the ribbon will not rewind properly


Its probably not static. 1. Wipe the print head and platen roller with alcohol dampened qtip or lint free cloth. Print about 30 labels while gently pressing on the ribbon supply, causing it to drag a little and observe if the wrinkles stop. If so tighten the nut on the end of the ribbon supply a little at a time until wrinkles disappear. Check the head pressure toggles on top of the print head and make sure they are adjusted about the same. If you have been printing a lot of the same size labels, check the platen roller (white) at the point where the right edge of the label rides on it for a slight offset where the roller is worn down. If it is worn, the only fix is to replace the platen roller.

Wrinkles in ribbon using Datamax H-4212 printer


Definitely. possible solution match the width of your label and ribbon. if your ribbon is wider for .5 inch it should be good.
1. check your spindle alignment, printhead alignment and rotate the green knob on the printhead while printing so that you'll see the difference.

Zebra Z4MPlus not printing dark enough


In your label software there should be a setting option for print darkness (I assume it adjusts the head temperature) In ours (bartender) you can get to it when you select 'print' and a window appears with a 'documents properties' button. Click on this and select options and a darkness bar appears which you can adjust. You may also need to slow the label print speed if the darkness adjustment is not enough. I suspect it isn't in the printers best interest to run the print head at maximum darkness/heat so a sensible balance of darkness and print speed is best.
Another, less likely, possibility is an incompatability between the label material or surface finish, and the ribbon type. We did have a problem once whem Homebase changed their price label design and we had to test a load of other ribbon types until we got one that did the job. A chat with the label or ribbon supplier is always usefull, they sent us several sample bits to test.

Ribbon wrinkle


Its a bit of both. Too much pressure on the printhead can cause this as well as a poorly aligned ribbon. Adjust both then adjust the darkness the same as you would position or calibration

Z4MPlus Ribbon wrinkles causing lines diagonally across label.


Could be down to tension on the ribbon roller/spool. Check to see if you have pulled out the end part of the spool (black bit) that should ensure there is back tension on the ribbon.

Ribbon wrinkles when printing barcodes


This is usually caused by temperature of the thermal print head. This is found in the printing preferences of the printer.
