    I am having a similar problem. This unit is brand new. I have printed maybe 8 labels without problems. I had disconected the printer for 2 weeks. Just plugged into the same printer where originally working without prblems.



    When I pressed the feed button for first time, it feeds half way and then makes a buzzing noise and get stuck. I have powered down and preformed a calibration but the same thing happens in the middle of calibration. It even is printed a very faded line on some of the labels..

How are you loading the labels in the printer?
Make sure they are secured underneath the black side guides?

    The feed path should be with the end of the labels fed on top of the roll fed into the compartment.  Once you reload the printer, press turn the printer on to reset it.  Press the feed button to see if it is reading the gap between the label if you have that type of stock.

    The other thing that could be going on is that thermal head needs to be replaced.  There real easy to do.  Just unlug the old one and put the new one in.  That can cause the red light to on as well.

Zebra TLP 2824 Labels printing upside down.....How do we correct?


Change orientation in the printer driver.

Open printer & Faxes folder, Double click on printer driver icon,

Zdesigner driver, click on properties, click printing preferences, tick the box "rotate 180%" Click apply & ok.

If driver is Zebra TLP2824, same as above, but hit the + on "Paper output" and turn "rorate 180%" on, then click apply.

Hi can you help ? My zebra TLP 2824 printer keeps printing out of alignment. I reset the printer by holding the feed button while powering on but instead of printing dump info the label moves for a while...


If you are using a ribbon remove it and perform a calibration, hold down feed key for 2 seconds as you power on, release key and wait for it to complete its calibration, when it has stopped shifting labels (wait for 10 secs to be sure) HIT THE FEED KEY to exit dump mode. If it has successfully calibrated it will feed a label each time you hit feed key. Re-install ribbon, make sure ribbon is pushed formly onto drive sprockets and then re-run the calibration..

If this does not fix problem. download firmware to latest version. This will automatically reset printer to factory default condition.

MY ZEBRA TLP 2824 PRINTS IN THE MIDDLE OF MY LABELS.


Don't shoot it, they're too hard to cook.

Make sure your program is set for the label size you're using. Also, there is a photo eye under the paper path that picks up the labels. It will, in time come out of adjustment. It can be cleaned with a swab and alcohol.

the error you are getting is a label size error. a label variance of as little as 1/203th of an inch can cause this.

you need to recalibrate the printer to the media, hold feed when powering up the printer letting go once the light flashes 4 times. this will force the printer to autodetect the label size.

if you are specifying the label size in you software or driver settings, measure and double check the label size

are you able to give me 2 print dumps? change the printer port to file and post the files content here and I will tell you if it is a config/software issue, it sounds like the software is not setting the label home position correctly(R command)

Here's the right way to fix the problem.

Autosense Procedure, Configuration Label and Dump Mode:
Models: Orion (2442, 2443 and 2543), Transport (P-2242), Xport (P-2222), LP/TLP Strata (2684), LP/TLP-2722, 2742, 3742, LP/TLP-2824 ,LP/TLP 2844 and TLP-3842
  1. Turn off printer and have media loaded (on older Transports, with no ON/OFF switch, remove battery).
  2. Hold feed button down, and turn printer back on (on older Transports, re-insert battery) while holding down the feed button.
  3. When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
  4. Printer light will turn green and advance a few blanks.
  5. After printer stops advancing and prints the internal information, press the feed button one time.
  6. You will get another label with the "Out of Dump" message on it.
Printer is now ready for use.
