Question about Zebra QL420 Thermal Printer
QL420 printer takes jobs coreectly, but while printing it skips or jumps randomly from the jobs and prints less number of jobs rather than specified number.
please give replay back asap--its very urgent.
SOURCE: Printer won't print
Printer doesn't print, just feeds the label.
Check your Labels and Ribbon, ensure you have the right ones.
If you have the right ones, here's what you try.
Hit the "setup/exit" button once. Then hit the "+" button repeatedly until you get to Print Meth. It will say Thermal Transfer. That setting can be changed by hitting the select button and the + button. Change it to Direct Thermal Transfer. Then use the setup/exit button to Temporary save the changes. You can change it back to Thermal Transfer doing the same method.
You will get an error, because the ribbon is in. But you can see it it prints.
Try going to the manufacturer website and read the manual about the printer.
If the printer feeds ribbon and doesn't print, more then likely it's a print head problem. When I mean it doesn't print, I mean from the printer control panel without the computer connected.
If you cannot figure out how to print the internal print fonts or setup from the Zebra 4m+ printer, you again need to go to the manufacturers website and read the manual.
Did a little research, appears that I can get a rebuilt print head for about $400. Instructions to install should be with the print head, if not reverse engineering.

Probably you have some conflict on your printer ports. Go to your installed printer (Printer folder) and select one of them, >> righ click >> go to properties >> Ports
and see which port is taking the first printer, which is taking the second one and which the third one. It is problably than 2 of them are using the same port. (Virtual USB)

Try entering the Menu system and exiting, whilst exiting and instead of saving permanent, cycle around to load defaults. once you have done that make sure the settings are as you need such as Thermal Transfer etc and save permanent. You won't have a problem after that. If you do I would be checking the page setup in the software to make sure it fits the lables.

There are two things to consider here: 1) Is the printer set to the correct media handling setting? Look in the manual for the terms BAR-SENSE and GAP-SENSE and make sure that you have sent the correct command to the printer. 2) There is a TOF or Top of Form setting that you can send to the printer to align the perforation of the labels with the tear bar. Look for the syntax in the manual, which is free for download at zebra.com, and make sure that your perfs line up with your tear bar.
