You should be able to print the degree symbol. I think you just had the hex wrong for it. According to page 1267 of the ZPL Programming Guide, The hex for a degree symbol is A7. I made this change in you ZPL and tried to print it on my ZD410, and it printed successfully.
Thank you for your response but for me it is not printing anything when i am sending this command to the printer.Please see the image I have attached. It prints the tilde but not the degree sign
^FO50,450^ADN,18,10^FPH\^FH^FDStore below 30 _A7 C. Protect from Freezing _7E^FS
I tried it again on my ZD410 and ZQ520, both of which printed it successfully. There is an alternate degree symbol at _F8 that you could try using.
Are you able to print special characters other than the tilde?

You can also try setting the code page, It might have gotten modified at some point on your printer. Default is ^CI0 but you can also try ^CI27 in order to use the more Microsoft Windows friendly 0xB0 as your hex value like in your initial code.
Another thing to try is giving the ^FH command a value. Try this:
^FO50,450^ADN,18,10^FPH\^FH\^FDStore below 30 \B0 C. Protect from Freezing \7E^FS
Thanks a lot everybody for your help. it worked when I added ^CI27. But the question for me is how or when could have this value been modified. Is there some command where I can check what code page I am using or if this code page has been deleted or modified.
HI Zolf, Good question. I don't think so. If you are using a downloaded conversion table (.DAT file) you could check that it was present or not, but not what the printer is currently using... That sound like a request we can take to the product team.
