The factory default settings for the S600 is to auto calibrate every time the printhead is closed and every time the power is cycled. If the media sensor is not positioned correctly for the media you are using the label size will not be detected during a calibration. You mentioned the media has no markings, doe sthe media have a space between the labels? If so, the media sensor may not see the gap in the labels adn therefor is not calibrating properly or not calibrating at all. Check the media sensor position. I have found that the media sensor must be at least 1" from the inner wall of the printer so it doesn't see the edge of the backing in oder to read the size of the labels.

If you open the case there is a sensor that detects whether the head is opened or not that is connected to the open and close lever. Sometimes the tab that blocks the sensor when it is closed get out of alignment or comes loose or the sensor is jarred loose. Make sure the tab breaks the beam.

If this unit has the LCD screen you need to Press Setup. Then Press Next till you get to Media Power Up and set it to FEED. Next go to Head Close and set it to FEED also and then save settings. It will only shoot one label out instead of Calibrate. Which is needed when they install new lables if its the same type of label all the time really don't need to Calibrate every time you stick new labels in it.
