Labels sticking to ribbon

If I had a guess...this label material sounds old or stored improperly...possibly to much head pressure....I would suggest some known good material and retry.

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.

Can you help me find a Windows 7 driver for my Zebra ZP-550 printer, please?

The Zebra ZP 550 will work with the GK 420t driver which is free for download at zebra.com. After installing it restart shiprush and your zebra printer will show up in your printer selection menu.

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.

My printer display keep showing " Warning, Ribbon in", cannot print multiple label at a time

i have the same problem , but my printer is ZEBRA S4M ZPL

my solution is:

in your barcode software: change printer settings: 1 and 2

1 . in media setting : change media type --> Thermal transfer
2. in documents options , configuration --> use printer settings

Printing error condition

First clean the sensor tag and sensor head open and tape. Then perform a calibration label pressing the PAUSE and FEED buttons and turn on the printer, release the keys until it starts to move the label. Wait until you are finished and ready to print.

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 for example. You can normally enter this using 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. !!!
