Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

2 Answers

Printing not centered

We have eight of these printers and print barcodes on them. One of these printers prints the barcode to the right-almost going off the lable. I have cleaned the rollers and print surface. The lables seem to be feeding straight...not to the left.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

If the other 7 printers print the barcode from the same software in the right place then the problem is with your printer.
Try to recallibrate the printer by doing this.
the printer should now perform a recalibration.

If this dows not fix it, then either the printer has a permanent fault or the printer driver/software is not set to the correct label width.

Check the width of the label format.
Normally this printer will center the printing automatically when it receives the instruction to change the coordinates

Ladder orientation barcode printing bad resolution needs correcting

Try slowing down the speed of the printer. Faster speeds degrade the quality of your print. Try printing your serial (ladder) barcodes at 2-4 inches per sec. It should improve the quality of your format.

How do you speed up the printing speed on a Paxar 9800/9850?

Press "escape"
Press Right arrow til display says "setup"
press "enter"
Display now says "supply"
press "enter"
right arrow til you see "speed"
press enter
adjust print speed IPS is "inches per second"
press enter after you change speed. hit escape key 3-4 times, then enter - you should see "print mode ready

If speed doesnt change it could be because the print speed is set by the software OR by the type of barcode you are printing. Serial barcodes default to 2.5 ips.

How do you speed up he printing speed on a Paxar 9800/9850?

Are you printing a serial or parallel barcode? If you don't know, a serial barcode looks like a ladder as it prints out on the label. A parallel barcode looks like a picket fence. A serial barcode (ladder) prints at 2.5 ips by default. You can't increase the speed. If you're printing a parallel barcode (picket fence) you must hit "enter' once you adjust the speed setting in the printer menu. If you've done that and it still won't increase speed, then the speed is set by the software itself, and overrides any changes you make in the printer menu. The speed adjustment must then be made in the software, not the printer.

Speed of printing barcodes

Generally the ZM 400 can cope with printing at the lower speeds when printing barcoedes that are the same. You may get pauses if the barcodes are sequential numbers or are all different, then the data to be transfered to the printer cannot cannot keep up with the printer and pauses while it gets more data. We have found that if you can select in your labelling software to print the barcode as a graphic, then it speed up quite a lot. It is a matter of matching your print speed and quality to match your expectations, sometimes you will just have to put up with the pauses.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.

Improper printing of barcodes

recalibrate the label length in the printer(hold feed and power up). from memory bar-one uses the label settings from windows, so go into printers and faxes under control panel and correct the label size
