How To Stop Zebra Printers From Skipping Labels

Why is my Zebra printer skipping labels?

The cause of a Zebra printer skipping labels is usually due to the printer not being fully calibrated or that your driver settings are not set properly for the label size that you are using. Calibrating ensures the correct and consistent positioning of the label in the printer, and the print on the label.

To fix your Zebra printer from skipping labels, follow these 5 quick steps:

  1. Load your Zebra printer with labels for your application.
  2. Power on your Zebra printer.
  3. Press and hold the Feed Button until it flashes two times, and then release it.
  4. Allow your Zebra printer to complete feeding labels and printing a sensor profile.
  5. Your Zebra printer should now be calibrated. To test – press the feed key and one label should be issued each time.

Once complete, then you check the Media settings. Confirm that the Media Loading is set so that the media is aligned correctly, and that the printer is set to the correct Media Type.

Following these easy steps will help to ensure that your labels and your Zebra printers are working as a team in tandem printing on each and every label, every time.
