Issue / Question

The LCD Display Label Count is not present in the ZT Series Printers

Applicable To

ZT400 Series Printers

ZT230 Printers

ZT510 and ZT610/ZT620

Resolution / Answer

The LCD Print Counter "Printing 1 of  x" was knowingly omitted from the ZT Series functionality.


A command was added in firmware version V75.20.01Z (ZT410 & ZT420) / V72.20.001Z (ZT230) and later that enables an LCD Display Counter function.
The ZT510 and ZT600 printers have had this functionality from launch.

The command to enable the counter:

! U1 setvar "display.batch_counter" "enabled"

To disable the counter use:

! U1 setvar "display.batch_counter" "disabled"

The command to check the status of the counter is:

! U1 getvar "display.batch_counter"
