Zebra Label Printer, Core for Label Roll Too Small

Posted on 2011-10-05

Hello Experts,
I'm hoping to quickly nab an expert whose dealt with Zebra printers for awhile.

An end-user came to me and pointed out that the new rolls of custom labels we now order have a small 42mm diameter core, as opposed to the last labels having a much larger core. (think: "toilet paper tube" ~ as a comparible to the label core I'm talking about) :-)

The "Media Supply Holder" which holds the roll of labels is now too large, but appears to be removable via 3 screws, and therefore I'm wondering if Zebra sold something like a "Media Supply Holder kit for xx mm Cores" or the like...  

We have a few different printers:
- Zebra Z400 Plus
- Z600 Plus
- Z4M Plus

I've also contacted Zebra via web, but want to see if the experts are faster.  ;-)
Thanks for your time!

    They should do different sizes, I used to rewind by hand when I was a label printer.  However this is laborious & Zebra or reseller should supply different standard sizes.

    Hmm, I'm now told by Zebra that they do not supply different media holder sizes. This is unfortunate. The label suppliers obviously offer different sizes, but I was hoping to get info about the zebra printer instead...
