Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I can see how tiresome it is, to have a printer fail repeatedly in the same manner.
I suggest first of all, that you install the driver for the printer, properly, removing all previous (presumably defective) printer configurations in the computer first.
I can give you instructions how to do this, step-by-step, so as to have a maximum likelihood of a favorable result.
However, I will first have to know:
- What computer do you have, Windows PC or Apple computer?
- What Windows version is on it? or if Apple, what MAC OS X 10.x version?
If you aren't printing from a computer, but from a Android or iOS/Apple/iDevice handheld, then there are appropriate printing apps for a Polaroid Zip printer, to use for printing. And I can instruct you on the proper source and choice of one of those, also, if that's the case.
Let me know what you are using to print to the Zip printer, and I will instruct you further and in detail as appropriate.
