    Printing half way down paper

    Joseph Nicolia

      I'm using a ZQ520 printer with 4x6in paper.  I am trying to print to it but no matter what I do it seems to start the printing halfway down the page.  I tried using ZPL with the following code:

       

      ZebraPrinter printer = ZebraPrinterFactory.getInstance(PrinterLanguage.ZPL, connection);

      String setLanguage = "\r\n! U1 setvar \"device.languages\" \"zpl\"\r\n";
      String zpl = "^XA^FO0,0^XGR:IMAGE.GRF^XZ";

      connection.write(setLanguage.getBytes());
      printer.storeImage("R:IMAGE.GRF", ZebraImageFactory.getImage(bitmap), 0, 0);
      connection.write(zpl.getBytes());

       

      I've also tried it with

       

      printer.printImage(ZebraImageFactory.getImage(bitmap), 0, 0, 1024, 1024, false);

       

      I've tried tweaking the numbers for the image sizes, that doesn't seem to make a difference of where its placed, just its size.  I used the windows zebra printer setup utility to make sure that the size of the paper is set to 4x6, but when I print out a configuration report the "Label" section reports a width of 104mm (correct) and a height of 8191mm (wrong).  The "ZPL Configuration Information" shows Label Length = 417 (with no units). 

       

      I'm assuming this is a configuration issue but I'm not sure how to solve it, can you help me figure out how to get it to print at the top of the label?
