Full Reset of Zebra if needed

Note:
This assumes that your Zebra ZD410 can work properly but needs to be fully reset, calibrated and tested.  This is all done without needing a computer.  Just the printer, power cord, and labels. 
If you cannot get the configuration page to print, there is no point trying to get eVisitorPass to print.

The printer manual is available here: https://www.zebra.com/content/dam/zebra_new_ia/en-us/manuals/printers/desktop/zd410d/zd410d-ug-en.pdf

ZD410 troubleshooting

eVisitor prints to a standard Windows printer.  If you cannot reliably print a Windows test page, eVisitor will not be able to print.  Follow these steps to identify the problem.  These steps start with the printer and work backwards to eVisitor. 


1) Can you reliably feed one label?
  • If you cannot reliably feed one label, the trouble is with the printer.  eVisitor will not be able to print.
  • Press the feed (center) button on the printer.  Does one label come out and it stops between labels?
  • Things to check:
    • Check the yellow support arms.  Set wide to avoid pinching the roll.
    • Check the sensor.  Lined up with the left-hole in the labels.
    • Check labels.  Face up.  Zebra how-to video
    • Check for clean paper path.  Is it smooth Zebra how-to video
    • Recalibrate (this has occasionally taken 5-10 times to work).  Zebra how-to video
    • Factory resets
    • Power cycle the printer
    • ...
  • If none of this works, contact Threshold or Zebra.


2) Can you reliably print a Windows test page?
  • If you cannot reliably print a Window test page, the trouble is between Windows and the printer.  eVisitor will not be able to print.
  • The number one problem we find here is Windows updates.
  • Other things to check:
    • Power cycle the computer and the printer
    • USB cable
    • USB port
    • Different computer
    • Different printer
    • Printer drivers.  Remove and reinstall drivers.  Try a different version.
    • Virus scanning software

  • Set the printer Preferences. 
    • Maintenance, Reset
    • Page Setup
    • Width.  about 2
    • Height 3, or 4 or 3.75 or 4.75 depending on the label ??
    • gaps or maybe notches
  • If none of this works, contact Threshold or Zebra.

3) Can you print  from eVisitor?

  • Confirm printer is set to auto
  • Confirm template settings  (includind setting Type 0 or 1...)
  • Confirm you can print a badge on a different system and printer... is the account setup right?
  • Try forcing to a specific printer
  • Try badge type 0,1,2
  • Check for windows updates
  • Power cycle Windows and the printer
  • Use the install wizard to confirm connectivity to our servers
