Describe and explain the two versions of the reprint function
Facts or Affected Items:
It's important to note that the term Reprint can possibly refer to two separate types of reprint features that are available in ZPL based printers.
The first type of reprint has been around for a long time and is still in all current ZPL based models.
^JZx (Y=yes, N=no)
Reprint After Error
Description: The ^JZY command reprints a partially printed label caused by a Ribbon Out, Media Out, or Head Open error condition. The label is reprinted as soon as the error condition is corrected.
By default the printer is set to Reprint (^JZY) on power up.
There is no way via the front panel of the printer to set it to ^JZY or ^JZN. Typically only in cases where a customer needs the Reprint turned off do they need to send a ^JZN since by default it is set to reprint ^JZY.
Example of how it works with Reprint After Error turned on (^JZY):

The second type of Reprint is only available in the printers using the applicator port except for Link-OS printers that respond without requiring additional hardware.
^JJa,b,c,d,e,f (^JJ,,,,E E=enable reprint ^JJ,,,,D D=enable reprint)
The e parameter controls the enabling or disabling of this Reprint feature. See the ZPL Programming Guide if you are interested in knowing what the other ^JJ parameters are for.
You can also enable or disable this feature through the LCD display at the front of the printer. Advance through the menu until you reach REPRINT and set it to either ENABLE or DISABLE and save the setting.
When the Reprint feature is enabled, you can demand the printer to reprint the last label it printed again in either of the two following ways:
You can repeatedly reprint the last label over and over again.

The PAX models mentioned above can do both types of reprint mentioned on this page (^JJ and ^JZ).
The other ZPL based models can only do the first type of reprint (^JZ), they cannot do the second type (^JJ) even though they may have an applicator port option installed.
