Unable to reset the printer, even to reset the password
after you reset to default settings you need to save changes for it to take effect. there is also another password. 1234 will only take you to level 2 you need the level 3 password. this password can be found in the service manuals and some of the full manuals
There is error "bblock"
BBlock is BOOT Block. The printer is not booting up the settings completely. Probably got corrupted. You will need to download the bootblock version for this printer & upload it via either USB or LPT1 port. You should contact Zebra so they can direct you to the proper Zebra site for the download & instructions. The process of the upload is no more that 15-20 minutes.
Zebra phone # is 847-913-2259 I think option 2 is tech support. be sure to have s# of printer & tell them you need to find the boot block & installation info for the S4M. Good luck.
I am having problems with Zebra printer MDL#ZM400
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.
How do you set a static IP address on the Zebra
If this is a wireless printer then all you need to do is set an address reservation on your router and then set up a fixed IP port on your printer driver.
First: Install the printer driver as a normal USB printer by connecting the cable during the install process dont use the wizard if you can help it.
Second : Find your MAC address for the printer (all types of Network Cards MUST have one) this will either be in the LCD control panel or on the bottom of the printer on a label and set this in your admin panel of your router to say 192.168.0.10 for example. You can normally enter this using 192.168.0.1 but all routers are different. Check here for your make and model http://www.routerpasswords.com/
Last : Goto the printer driver properties for the USB printer you have just install click the port tab and click add standard IP port as shown below, then disconnect the USB lead this is only required to make sure the correct inf file is used on the driver install.
Thats is. !!!
Zebra z4mplus blanck screen
Sounds like the main board needs replacing. Google '77904m PWB" and you will get a place to buy the part. However you mentioned the IP the Z4m does not have an Ethernet option so make sure that it isn't a Z4m+.
I have a Z4M plus and it only prints half of the
Clean the print head. If half has got gummy from labels, it will not be able to print. You will need to use a solvent for the gummy adhesive... possibly Toluol... HOWEVER be very careful to keep that off ANY plastic parts.
Z4m printer error condition paper out labels will just keep feeding through ?
Sounds like a miss-match on the labels you are loading and the labels it is set up for. You'll have to go into the printer properties and check (and adjust as needed) the label stock selected to make sure they match. Next check the setting on the printer its self for the same for label stock selected. Most likely you're trying to use a label stock different then it was using before.
I think your printer is set to print on Continuos media. If you use gap labels, you will need to set the printer from the menu on NOT CONTINUOS, then save the setting. In some cases the software or driver is the one who controls this setting. So you will need to change directly in the printer driver. You will find this option on the General tab (click Properties then) and Advanced tab (click on Printing Defaults). There you will have a list with printing parameters like speed, darkness, media type. Adjust as you need to fulfill your request. But first change directly to the printer, accessing the menu from control panel. Also verify if there is no label sticked on the media gap sensor.
Z4Mplus test page
Do you want to print out settings? Do you want to print a printhead check? Make sure supplies are loaded and the printer is ready to print. Turn off the printer, press X button, turn on the printer while pressing de X button and release the button after aprox 5 seconds from power on. This will print out the configuration page. Do the same but with the Pause button, and you will get a printhead quality test. Note that the test with Pause button it will stop automaticly only after some 10 printed labels . You will need to restart the printer after that, or press the cancel button several times.
