    Exact same issue here. Everytime we turn it on it just says to restart it again. No printy = no happy.

    After hooking up and installing printer to a new computer it shows error message 004-321. I have removed the drum and all print cartridges, wiped down all the toner from any surfaces, cleaned sensors where indicated to me by Dell and still I am getting the same error. Dell suggested I buy a new printer. Any other ideas???

YES! It Worked. Man I love it when things like this work out! Thanks Gnolgnol!

Let me just elaborate however:

The "belt" is the 8 1/2" wide black rubber piece wrapped around the drums located at the back top section just near the 4 black arrows and "no hands" warning picture. I was too lazy to unscrew it to fix it so I simply used much force with the palm of my hand and rolled and pushed up and over in the direction it needed to be adjusted several times. The belt will overlap on both sides about 1/8" on both sides so make sure you go past the drum a bit to even it out on both sides.

Printer error


First confirm if the printer is recognized by your system,and check the printing history to see if there is a queue. If there is, delete them and restart your system. This time, make sure it\'s recognized, then resend your instruction to print.

The paper gets blocked evry time i start the printer


It could be that small pieces paper is still stuck in the rollers. Make sure also that the paper feeder is properly placed on its correct location. Other things you can do is to put some more paper on the tray. See if it will feed the paper.

Please post back if you still have any concerns.

Zebra TLp 2844 (printer not connected error message )


Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools (in Clasic view), and double click on Services. Scroll down and right-click on "Print Spooler". Start (or Restart) it and your printers will reappear in the "Printers and Faxes" window, and the spooler will try to send jobs to the printers again.

If you check the Properties of the Print Spooler, on the Recovery tab, you can set it to "Restart the Service". I set mine to Restart on the First Failure and Second Failure, and Take No Action on the Third Failure, in case something really needs attention.
