The S4M, ZM400 & ZM600 printers supports ZPL using firmware V53 or EPL using firmware E53. These printers support only one language at a time. Users cannot send EPL to a printer running V53 or ZPL to a printer running E53.

To change the firmware from ZPL you will need to upload EPL firmware (E53.x.x) to the printer using DOS, Zebra Setup Utility or any communication utility that will allow you to send a file to the printer.
