Restart your computer. Turn your printer off and back on again. Restart your software for printing lables. When updating the printer drivers, all software needs to be restarted to make sure that the form controls are working properly.

My zebra tlp 2824 won't line up to the labels


Either your printer needs calibrated: Calibrate Zebra Desktop Printer

Or your label template size( in the software) does not match the label size. I recommend the calibration then looking at the software label templates.

Zebra lp 2824 faded printing


Many factors affect print quality: Heat settings, speed setting and label face stock quality and type are a great place to start. How old is your printer? How many labels have been printed through it (there is an odometer that tells your this on the config label). Is the printhead dirty? Use > 90% isopropyl alcohol on a cotton ball or microfiber cloth to gently clean the printhead.
I would start by checking the heat and speed settings in the driver - crank up the darkness and crank down the speed a notch or two at a time until you get the print quality that you are looking for. If all of this fails, you may need a new printhead (not too easy to replace on this model). Printheads are made up of an array of resistors. These can loose their electrical resistance over time and require more energy (controlled by the darkness setting) to get the same results as a new printer. Printheads, like labels and car tires are considered a consumable commodity.

TLP 2824 don't print


Only one suggestion, do a memory dump, switch off the power switch (should be back corner of printer) , hold down the green feed button, power on and watch the feed button, take Your finger off it after the third flash.

Leave it for a moment and press once more, it might say something on the label like out of dump. Try a label again.
Do this two or three times if it still acts up.
After this all thats really left is to clean it with an alcohol swap or check settings in the program You're using

Some times they cant store the amount of print jobs being sent to them and the zebra just freezes up or spits out labels
