2. Insert your Zebra ZD410 label roll

  1. To open the printer's lid, pull the yellow latches towards you and lift the lid upwards.
  2. Pull the yellow roll guides apart and insert the roll with the labels face up.
  3. Release the the roll guides and push them together to make sure the roll is secure and turning freely.
  4. Pull the labels out past the cutter at the front of the printer.
  5. Push the labels under the roll guides.
  6. Flip the labels up to adjust the media sensor accordingly:
    • Normal, small, and alternative labels: align it to the default center position.
    • Jewelry labels: align it to the center of the label's black marks.

  7. Push the lid down to snap both yellow latches shut.

3. Calibrate your Zebra ZD410

For the printer to recognize the size of your labels, perform an initial calibration:

  1. Follow the steps above to insert your label roll.
  2. Press the power button and wait for the solid green status indicator light.
  3. Hold the pause and cancel buttons down for 2 seconds and let go. The printer will measure and feed a few blank labels.
  4. Once the printer stops and the status indicator light is solid green, the calibration is complete.

NOTE: An initial calibration is necessary when the new roll is a different label size. You do not need to calibrate after inserting a new roll of the same label size. The printer will automatically adjust or you can press the feed button twice before printing. If you are using a Zebra LP2824 Plus, hold down the green feed button and release after the status light ring flashes once and then twice.
