Z6m won't stop feeding

I would venture a guess that the sensor that detects the labels isn't working well - it's supposed to see the difference between label and backing paper and stop at the correct position.

Zebra Z4 Error message

ribbon in means, you choose direct thermal print method which is printing without a ribbon and yet you print with thermal transfer print method.

just check on lcd panel , change the print method to thermal transfer. and make sure the setting on your driver is thermal transfer too, or else it will keep reverting back to direct thermal

Error print head open on Zebra 6m plus. Load

The sensor on this printer is a double sensor. The side close to the frame is the head open and the one on the outside is the ribbon present. It is adjustable. They both reflect off the chrome surface of the head assy. above them. First clean the chrome surface above the sensor and test before adjusting. There is one screw that you can loose and tilt the sensor to match the angle of the chrome plate above. Also the gap between the sensor and the chrome surface is .060in. or 1.5mm.

Everything I try to print is being shrunk.

Welcome to FixYa.Check the "Printing Properties" of the software you are using to print. The "scale to fit media" or an option to shrink the printout must have been turned on or checked. Depending on the software you are using to print, it is usually found at FILE > PRINT > Printing Properties.Thank you for using FIxYa.
