It depends on the amount of labels and the media used. The more it is used the quicker the printheads need replaced. In an industrial environment 6 months is not uncommon. You need to try and keep the printhead temperature as low as possible and the labels should be free from dirt etc to avoid wear on the head. If this printer has a ribbon option try that as it often works out cheaper.

How do i fix the error in Zebra ZM600 printer and error is ERROR CONDITION INVALID HEAD

You may have problem with your Printhead cable or Logic, I'd start by re-seating the cable on both ends. If that does not work I'd replace the PH as it will wear out eventually anyway if it is not the problem you can keep it as a spare. The ZM600 will take both a 203 and 300 dpi Printhead make sure you get the same one you installed currently.

203 dpi

How to printer test page from the display panel zebra zm600

With most Zebra printers, a test page is printed by pressing and holding the PAUSE key while turning on the power. Keep pressing the PAUSE key until the printer completes the POST (power on self-test), then you can let go. A test pattern will begin printing. You can stop the pattern by pressing PAUSE. Turning the printer off & on again is the fastest way to end the test. This is a good page to print because it prints a large black box and it's easy to see if there are any printhead elements not functioning. It's best to use the largest, widest label you have for this test.

Hope that helps !

I have a brand new Zebra ZM600 with new ribbon and new label. However, it is only printing half of a ticket, and what it does print is very faded.

If the problem is on the right side , try adjusting the head pressure adjustment knob on the top right side. You can adjust with a flat blade screw driver.
