    Help with Non-Continuous printing and ZQ500 series

    John Ferlazzo

      Hi,

       

      I am developing an app using Xamarin.iOS and am having issues when connecting and printing non-continuous media (Continuous printing works fine).

      I am using black mark media, during calibration it successfully proceeds to the next black mark. When printing data, it does not.

       

      When I first connect to the printer I do the following:

       

      1.) Check and set the printer language to ZPL:

      - ! U1 setvar "device.languages" "zpl"

       

      2.) Set the Media Mode to Black Mark, Calibrate and Save (It successfully calibrates and feeds to the next black mark):

      ^XA

      ^MNM

      ^XZ

      ~JC

      ^XA

      ^JUS

      ^XZ

       

      3.) Test print out (Issue - it feeds out a small amount but does not continue to the next black mark and stop):

      ^XA

      ^MNM

      ^PW583

      ^FO300,10

      ^A0N,10,10

      ^FDTEST PRINT

      ^FS

      ^XZ

       

      I am fairly new ZPL so hoping it is a simple solution. Let me know if any more information is required.

      Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks.
