Dmx-4204 and zpl

You can't, on this obsolete model. zpl is "Zebra Printer Language." This model of Datamax is dpl only ("Datamax Printer Language"). Most current models of Datamax printers are dpl and zpl compatible.

We can not use our print DATAMAX DMX M CLASS

What type of stock are you using? Gapped, continuous, or reflective mark?
If you are using a standard gapped stock, and the stock is loaded in the printer and ready, press the feed button until 3-6 labels are passed beneath the media sensor.

If you are using reflective (eyemarked stock) go in the the media settings. Change the sensor type to reflective.
Make sure that the eyemark is presented to the sensot at the small white strip on the sensor. Do not move the sensor to a place where the sensor will see anything but the mark.

Thermal Ribbon has a wrinkle

The thermal print head is damaged. You can try to clean it with a thermal printer head cleaner. That will only help if it is just clogged up with thermal print ink.
