Question about Zebra Eltron LP 2824 Thermal Printer
I'm trying to get my Zebra LP2824 Direct Thermal Printer working but it refuses to print anything other than the ZebraNet Print Server Config info.
I'm running Windows Vista and have already installed all the appropriate drivers as well as the ZebraDesigner Pro software. They all installed fine however when I try to print the program freezes and the printer does nothing.
I've checked and double checked connections, pinged the printer and it replied fine, even tried other software applications to get the printer to spit something out.
The print job is in the printer queue, stays there for about 30secs then says error. I've tried dumping (reset) the printer but i'm still having the same issue.
Program works great, computer, router and the whole network can see the printer just fine, they let me adjust the settings too.
I'm at my wits end, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I had the same problem and could not fix it but called Zebra headquarters and they gave me this solution and it works! It sounds crazy but it works. Turn off the printer on the switch on the side. press and hold the button on the front of the machine while you turn it on. The light will turn red then release the button the light around the button will then turn a solid greed then blink green. While it is blinking green press and hold the button again until it the light turns orange and then release the button. This apparently puts your printer into line mode or something but anyway it works!

I'd try using the driver from Seagull Scientific. I've used them for many types of thermal printers.
They work with Vista, and your LP2824 model is listed in their Zebra downlaod.
