Question about Zebra Stripe S600 Thermal Label Printer

Printing fade at the midle of the page

Hi there, I was making some testes printing labels with my Zebra S600 and everything was going just fine. But, when I finaly got the label printing out just the way I need it, the printing started to fade out in the midle label. I'm using the same format parameters for all the tre labels (in a line) the top and the bottom label are printing just fine, but the midle label fades (like, you can't even read it). I've cheked the ribbon and it's ok. Does any one knows what could be happening?? I would really appreciate some help on this one... Tanks, Lucin

Hi there, I am printing on Zebra S600 using Seagull Scientific Driver, The printer only prints every alternate label that is prints one label and prints a blank. Thank you for your help

Skipping labels is usually a printer driver issue. You should use Seagull Scientific printer driver only if you are using the corresponding Seagull Scientific label design software. It is important to have the printer driver and label design software be from the same manufacturer.

Hi, On a Zebra S600 printer... How to change setup for print method (actually it showing up direct thermal) and we would like to change the print method to (Thermal trans). Thanks! Pierre Tardif

The easiest way may be to change your printing preferences at the driver level. We use Seagull Scientific Drivers (They are free to download).

If you use the Seagull Driver go to your Printers Folder, "Right Click" your printer and go to Properties
Then Go to the General Tab then Printing Preferences then Stock Tab then Print Method. Click on the Down Arrow and change to THERMAL TRANSFER.

If your using a label printing package make sure your settings are for Thermal Transfer since they can override default printer settings.

Good Luck

I have installed (hardware + driver) a stripe s600 via COM1 on my desktop; how can i get a test page? i does not work from the test page @ printer properties.

You should be able to print a test page from Windows.
First make sure the device itself can print by holding down CANCEL while you power it up. Release the button when the CALIBRATE light goes off. This should print out a config label.

Here's the manual: http://tinyurl.com/yb2rpd4

I would check all the connections, download the latest drivers from the Zebra website (not the ones on the disc) and reinstall.

Hope this is helpful for you!
If so, please leave a rating!

Zebra S600, Recieves data, but does not print

Go into the printer driver and select print a test page, does it print out?
If so then try printing from your label software, it should work, if not then it is your software that is at fault.
If the test page does not print out then check all the settings in the print driver, so they are the same as the physical label.
If non of this helps then go to www.lancerlabels.co.uk and do a live chat to Michael.

Zebra S600 Thermal Ribbon Ripping after printing

Hi chunnon,

What darkness setting are you using? If the darkness is at or near 30, you may be burning through the ribbon.

Try defaulting the printer and running a Pause test. Does the ribbon tear during the Pause test?
