Issue / Question
How do I setup the ZD488 printer to use fan-fold media?
Resolution / Answer
Printing on fan-fold media requires you to adjust the media guides stop position.
1. Open the top cover.
2. Adjust the media guide stop position with the gold thumb wheel. Use a piece of the fan-fold media to set the stop position. Rotate the wheel away from you to make the guides wider. Rotate the wheel toward you to make the media guides narrower.
3. Insert the media through the slot at the rear of the printer and place the media between the media guide and roll holders.
4. Close the top cover.
After printing or using the FEED button to advance several labels: If the media does not track down the center (moves from side to side) or the sides of the media (liner, tag, paper, etc.) are frayed or damaged when exiting the printer, then the media guide stop position may need further adjustment.
If this does not correct the problem, then the media can be routed over the two roll holding pins on the media guide. An empty roll core of the same width as the stack of the fan-fold media can be placed between the roll holders to provide additional support for thin media.
