This document outlines the setup of the new ZD620 printers to replace the older Zebra 420d printers that are obsolete.|
One difference between the GX420d and the ZD620d is the lack of a dedicated power switch. The newer ZD620d opts for a power button that must be pressed in order to turn on the printer after power is supplied. As our machines are fully un-powered after a machine is closed down it causes the operator to intervene and manually turn on the printer after power up.
Ideally the Zebra ZD620d has an Power Recovery Mode that acts as a permanent switch in case of power failure. We can use this on the machines to allow the printer to turn on upon power up.
1. Disconnect from power.
2. Remove module door and use Ethernet cable to remove (plug in and pull).
3. Move the switch that is annotated AUTO to the ON position.
4. Reinstall the module.
5. Reconnect power, this should now turn on.
Plug in power and Ethernet cable connected to network to the printer. As the printer boots up there will be a red light displayed on the front. After around 30 seconds this will turn green as the printer completes boot up.
Underneath the printer will be two screws that hold the front label dispenser in place. Undo these using the tool provided in the peel off module box. When these are undone, slide the dispenser downwards to release. When this is off, slide the peel off module onto the printer. Reattach the screws and tighten
Using the latches on the sides, open the printer and place in a label reel as shown. Open the peel off module using the yellow latch on the front. Thread the labels through the module and tuck labels under latches by the wheel. Check labels are parallel to the printer, close and shut peel off module.
Open the most available browser on the network and type the IP address gathered in the search bar. This should open the Zebra Web Home Page.
Added March 2023 :
Please check Black mark and Label Gap - Moveable Sensor is near middle of label are and is not pushed to one side.
Press and hold Pause and Cancel buttons for 2 seconds then let go.
This will calibrate the label length
1. Backfeed being set to Off rather than Default
2. Tear off position being set to 0
3. Max label length being set to 300, rather than the Max 7967
This should always be done last as changing the IP address to outside of the local range will make the printer settings inaccessible.
To calibrate the label width, follow the instructions in this video
