Resolution / Answer

The ZT510 can be bought in 203 or 300dpi resolution.

The ZT620 can be bought in 200 or 300dpi resolution.

A printhead resolution change for the ZT510 and ZT600 printers is not supported by Zebra.

The correct resolution needs to be specified when purchasing.

There is no kit or instructions to do this conversion and warranty may become void if this is attempted.

To determine the printer's DPI setup please refer to the printer's partnumber.
The 7th character identifies the DPI option.


The 2 would indicate a 203DPI option (8dot/mm)
The 3 would indicate a 300DPI option (12dot/mm)
The 6 would indicate a 600DPI option (24dot/mm)

Note: The DPI option can also be seen on the Cancel Button Self Test
