Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

Open Question

Not Printing Hi, My TLP 2844 just spits out empty labels when I ask it to print. I am using Bar-One 6.0 Lite.and matt labels 2 x across. I am using it in Thermal Direct Mode and have already altered various settings to see if this helps with no luck. It is attached to LTP-1. The label was originally designed to work on a TLP 2824, but I want to be able to use this on either printer. (different locations, same laptop)

SOURCE: Trying to setup a Zebra TLP 2844-Z on serial port

Two possibilities are the port configuration and the type of serial cable.

The printer has a feature that will try to match itself to the PC's configuration. Press and hold the feed button until the green status led flashes three times. While the led flashes send a ZPL format to the printer (hopefully you can do this through Design Pro by trying to adjust the printer or print labels, but the labels will not print). When the printer and PC are synchonized, the led changes to solid green.

If you can synchonize but still can't print, the problem might be the serial cable; not all serial cables will work. You should use a full null model cable (all pins connected except 1 and 8).

SOURCE: TLP 2844 skips over labels

I've had this same problem on the TLP2844. We are using 3 x 1 labels to print shelf barcode labels, it prints a few then skips some labels then prints more. The number printed and skipped are not always the same.

What I did was recalibrate the printer. Turn the printer off. Hold Feed button and turn printer on. The printer will begin feeding labels, looking for the gaps. After the calibration is complete a configuration page will print. Press Feed after to return to normal mode.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: TLP 2844 GAP sensor problem (I guess)

I had the same problem. I found out later there was a small piece of label sticking against the sensor, thus blocking the sensor from sensing the end of the label. As soon as I removed the label (open the cover, it is on the top part) it immediately started to work as usual. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

The printer driver should be set to Continuous or it will think it is still Gap or Black Mark. Please adjust accordingly

I'm using ZebraDesigner and trying to print on a TLP 2844 printer, but it keeps printing across labels.


This reply is a bit late but for anyone else having this problem, you need to select the right orientation in your printer preferences in your software and in the printer driver, If you still have problems contact www.lancerlabels.co.uk

Loftware labels printing off staggered.


Most reasons for this is a slight adjustment problem with page length. You can recalibrate the printer via the menu system, doing it this way will adjust the sensors with new settings

Zebra TLP 2844 printing landscape instead of portrait.


To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps.
1. turn the power off
2. hold the feed button down
3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button.
4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button.
5. turn the power off.
6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.

Problem printing on Glossy Label [butterfly label] using Zebra TLP 2844 EPL


You must make sure that the ribbon is compatible with the label you are attempting to print on. It must be a permanent resin. We use the AXR7+ material. Try to avoid using such a high printer head temperature as this will reduce the life of the head.

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
