Calibrating the ribbon and media sensors
on the ZT230. If the printer fails to detect the size
of the media correctly you may have to manually calibrate the
ribbon and media sensors. Press the home key. Press right arrow key to move to the tools icon. Press OK. Press right arrow key until you get to
media ribbon calibration. Press Start. Pull media out and remove about six
inches or a 150 millimetres of labels from the liner. Rotate the
gold printhead lever up to open the printhead. Roll media back into the printer so that only the
backing is between the media sensors. Move ribbon to the right, away from the
sensors. Close the printhead. Press pause to begin media calibration. The display shows “CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT.” Wait until process is complete and the
display changes to “RELOAD ALL.” Open the printhead.
Straighten the ribbon. Turn ribbon spindle to the right to
remove ribbon slack. Pull the media forward until a label
is positioned under the media sensor. Close the printhead. Press Pause. Press Home twice. Press Pause to enable printing. The
printer is ready to print.
